Market Overview

Though molluscicide constitutes a fraction of the global pesticide market, it is growing at an exponential rate, given the increasing occurrence of snail and slug infestations, mainly in cereal crops like rice, maize, and wheat. The global molluscicides market was valued at USD 782.79 million in 2018 and it is expected to witness a CAGR  of 4.7% during the forecast period.






Scope of the Report

Molluscicides are the pesticides used for controlling mollusks (snails and slugs). The mollusc species have been noted to cause huge agricultural losses and has become one of the major threats. Damage caused by snails and slugs to crops varies considerably with the season and year. Snails and slugs are serious pests, especially of cereals such as wheat, barley, oats and oilseed rape, and also of ornamental and vegetable plants. They feed both above and below the surface of the ground, on seeds, seedlings, and plants, damaging shoots, roots, leaves, and flowers, therefore reducing plant stand and crop yield.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Food Demand and Diminishing Arable Land

The global population is increasing exponentially, and every day, nearly 200,000 people are contributing to the global food demand and is projected to reach 9.2 billion by 2050. Supplying food to this growing population has become a global threat. Thus, crop protection is a key strategy adopted by farmers, to meet the global food demand. Usage of pesticides on crops is a proven technology, in order to increase the global food production Huge demand for molluscicides has been seen from developing nations. People are now adopting every measure to increase crop productivity. According to the UN Population Division, the largest population increase is projected to occur in Asia (particularly in India, China, and Southeast Asia), accounting for 60% or more of the global population, by 2050. Large quantities of crop protection chemicals are expected to be required in this region, in order to increase food production for the growing population.

Molluscicides Market1

Asia-Pacific-Largest Market

Asia-Pacific, being the largest, as well as the most populous continent, is one of the key markets for the molluscicides market. This region has registered the largest market share of 30% of global molluscicides production for the year 2018 and it is expected to register the CAGR of 5.5% in the forecasted period. Awareness among people regarding crop protection and optimizing yield can be one of the reasons for this trend.
