Organophosphate Insecticides Market - Segmented by Active Ingredient, Application, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2019 - 2024)

Purchase Report

The organophosphate insecticides market is expected to witness a CAGR of 5.2% over the forecast period (2018 – 2023). Like other agricultural inputs market, this market is driven by the need to increase crop yield and efficiency to cater to the growing food demand.

Organophosphate insecticides are used in agriculture, home, and garden, and also in a variety of veterinary practices. However, over the past few years, several notable organophosphates (Ops) have been withdrawn from use, including parathion which is no longer registered for any use, and chlorpyrifos, which is no longer registered for home-use in the US.

Regulatory and Environmental Concerns are a Restraint to the Market

Owing to high toxicity, fast biodegradation, low bioaccumulation, and broad target spectrum the organophosphorus pesticides are extensively used in agriculture. However, their intensive and indiscriminate applications, as well as high acute toxicity, pose risks to humans and the environment. The organophosphate compounds are most commonly associated with serious human toxicity, accounting for more than 80% of the pesticide-related hospitalizations.

Asia-Pacific is one of the Largest Markets

Asia-Pacific accounts for more than 40% of the global market share, followed by North America and Europe. The rising disposable incomes, population, and food security concerns have made Asia-Pacific the region with maximum growth potential. The emerging economies of China, India, Vietnam, and Thailand are the major consumers of organophosphate insecticides for application in various cereal & grain crops.


Major Players: Bayer CropScience, BASF SE, Dow AgroSciences, Sumitomo Chemical, Monsanto Company, Arysta LifeScience, Yara International, United Phosphorus Limited, and ADAMA Agricultural Solutions, among others.
