Agricultural disinfectants are toxic chemicals widely used on livestock and crops to protect them against various microorganisms such as virus, bacteria, and fungi. High demand for agricultural disinfectants, especially in Asia-Pacific, has resulted in increased competition among major players, and companies are focusing on more investments on R&D activities to innovate new products to capture maximum market share.
Agricultural disinfectants are available in several forms such as aerial, water sanitizing, liquid, powder, and granular. Suitable disinfections are required for optimum protection of livestock and crops to sterilize unwanted and harmful microorganisms. To safeguard livestock, disinfectants are used on their surface, in drinking water, and yards to prevent the attack of harmful diseases. Thus, frequent removal of manure and routine cleanliness results in better health of the livestock population.
Emergence of novel techniques for vegetable production in greenhouses and vertical farming, rapid increase in demand for animal products, growth in occurrence of disease outbursts among livestock, and prohibition on antibiotics in animal feed drive the global agricultural disinfectants market. This has further directed to a significant demand for disinfectants, especially in crops, for optimum production and to achieve efficient food yield.
In addition, the demand for disinfectants is increasing owing to the growing demand for meat products to ensure ideal health of livestock globally. However, a recent downturn in the agricultural disinfectants market has been witnessed due to the ill after effects of these products, which may hamper the market growth. Disinfectant manufacturers are refraining from adopting new techniques due to lack of knowledge and awareness among farmers concerning the proper use of precise methods. However, rise in number of initiatives by companies and governments to spread awareness among farmers and instruct them about the optimum use of agricultural disinfectants is projected to provide an impetus in the overall growth of the global market.
