Market Dynamics

The pesticides market in Latin America is driven by the increasing demand for crop yield and efficiency, growing adoption of GM technology, and adoption of new farming practices in the region. The strict regulation posed by the US EPA and the EU on pesticidal residue limit on food crops, will limit the use of synthetic pesticides and increase the demand for biopesticides in the region. Some of the major restraints for the growth of the pesticides market are the increasing R&D costs and shrinking farm land in some of the Latin American countries. Growing awareness about the biopesticide market and promotion of biopesticide by the regional governments and non-governmental organizations are expected to promote the market growth.
