In-depth coverage of the global herbicide marketincluding drivers, restraints and opportunities would help professionals to better understand market behavior.


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/22/2018 -- Herbicide Market Report, published by Allied Market Research, forecasts that the global market is expected to garner $31.5 billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 5.4% during the period 2014-2020. Asia-Pacificis the dominant market in terms of consumption of herbicides (around two fifth of market share). On the other hand, due to relatively higher price of herbicides in the North American region, the revenue generated equates to almost one third of global herbicide market. France leads the European Herbicides Market, as the country produces large volume of wheat where herbicide is used. In the recent era, economic development in rural China caused farmers of the country to showcase interest in chemical herbicide usage. Currently, China consumes more than 50% of herbicide in Asia-Pacific region. The synthetic herbicide dominates the global herbicide market due to its abundant commercial availability, cost efficiency, and limited commercialization of Bio herbicides.

Glyphosate, a glycine derivative broad-spectrum & non-selective herbicide holds the largest market share among other herbicides, globally. Furthermore, it kills weeds more effectively without affecting crops compared to other commercially available herbicides. Renowned chemical manufacturers such as DuPont and BASF are manufacturing glyphosate under brand names Abundit Extra, KIXOR, respectively. However, usage of 2,4-D, is banned in countries such as Canada, Denmark and Norway due to the high level of dioxin contamination and risk of spreading cancer. Currently, the usage of organic herbicide, as a replacement of 2,4-D, is being considered globally; although, the effectiveness of organic herbicides to control weed is still under research.

Currently, bio herbicide is a niche segment of the global herbicides market. These are composed of microorganisms such as fungi, bacteria and insects that can target only specific weeds without harming actual crops. Currently, commercial production of such herbicide is very low. However, due to lack of chemical toxicity & milder effect on environment, popularity of bio herbicide as compared to synthetic herbicide is growing. Considering the potential of bio herbicides, companies such as Bioherbicides Australia, are focusing on R&D and commercializing bio herbicides. Myco-Techpaste and Sarritorare, two Canadian brands of bio herbicides, which are currently commercially available.
Among different crop types, herbicide usage is highest in cereals & grains (namely maize, rice, wheat and others).Asia-Pacific region (Mainly China,India and Japan) being the major production hub of cereals & grains, consumes nearly three fourth of total herbicide consumption in this category.
