Agrochemicals Market Outlook - 2021–2030

The global agrochemicals market size was valued at $231.0 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $315.3 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 2.9% from 2021 to 2030.

Agrochemicals are engineered chemical or biological formulations used for improvements in the quality and yield of crops. Agrochemicals are classified into fertilizers and pesticides. Fertilizers enhance the quality of the crop by providing essential nutrients to the crop and soil whereas pesticides protect the crops and control, kill, or repel pests and weeds that can harm the crop. Considering the current global population scenario, it is extremely important to increase the production of crops within the present arable land to feed the global population. Thus, agrochemicals play an important role in the agriculture industry, assisting farmers in enhancing their crop quality as well as quantity.


The major factors driving the global agrochemicals market include high population and subsequent increase in the demand for food, soil degradation, limited agricultural land, and increase in awareness in the consumers regarding the benefits of agrochemicals. However, the market growth may be hampered by the potential harm of using synthetic pesticides such as 2, 4-D and atrazine herbicide. Agrochemicals, when used in higher concentration, result in surface water pollution and adversely affect the environment. Thus, the production of bio-based fertilizers and pesticides have created numerous opportunities for the key market players.
