The UK pesticides Market expected to reach XX Million by 2020 from USD 1099.07 million in 2015, registering a CAGR of 3.84 % during the forecasted period from 2015 to 2020. Crops like oats, wheat and barley are largely grown in U.K. and hence the crop-based applications corner the larger share in the region’s overall pesticides market. Utilization and storage of pesticides in the UK is being undertaken in a sustainable manner, with incidences of adverse impacts on human health and environment being reduced to the minimum.
The law for approving pesticides in the UK requires that only plant protection products authorized by ministers are to be sold, supplied, used, stored or advertised. The concerned departments include Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), Department of Health, the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, Northern Ireland (DARDNI). The Chemicals Regulation Directorate (CRD) of Health and Safety Executive (HSE) acts as the delivery body for regulating plant protection products authorized for sale, supply, use and storage in the UK.
Despite the fact that the use of pesticides in the UK is governed by various departments, there still remains a demand among the local populace to curtail the use of pesticides. This has been further promoted by several non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that are either totally or partially committed to reducing pesticide utilization, as also by the media that keeps a careful watch over pesticide-related incidents.
By product type, market is segmented into herbicides, fungicides, insecticides and other chemicals. Further the products are segmented by origin, synthetic and biopesticides. By application area, pesticides demand has been analyzed in terms of crop-based (including grains & cereals, oilseeds and fruits & vegetables) and non-crop-based (including turf & ornamental grass and other non-crop-based applications).
