Key Driving Factors

Increasing Demand for Sustainable Crop Protection Solutions to Drive Growth

The increasing demand for sustainable crop protection solutions stoked by rising awareness regarding the harmful effects of pesticides is projected to drive the global semiochemicals market growth. For instance, According to a report published in the National Center for Biotechnology Information, every year, nearly one million people lose their lives due to chronic diseases that were driven by pesticide poisoning. In addition, the increasing research and development activities to expand the application areas of semiochemicals are estimated to further enhance the market growth. On the other hand, the rising adoption of high-value crops, such as organic commodities and fruits & vegetables, is anticipated to boost the demand.

Restraining Factors

Lack of Awareness Regarding Semiochemicals to Reduce Demand

  • The lack of awareness regarding semiochemicals in developing regions, such as Asia Pacific and the Middle East and Africa, is expected to hinder its market growth. Moreover, the high costs associated with the product may limit its demand in various parts of the world.
  • The COVID-19 outbreak has negatively impacted this market. According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation & Development (OECD), the first quarter of the pandemic period witnessed lower production of pesticides compared to the usual amount.
  • Owing to lack of awareness and sufficient knowledge, several farmers from developing countries, such as India and China, are still utilizing the traditional methods of crop protection. This is expected to restrain the global market.

In addition, the rising inclination of growers toward sustainable cultivation in the U.S. and Canada is expected to further boost the demand in the region.
  • Europe is projected to hold the second-largest market share during the forecast period. The growth in the region is attributable to the high adoption of organic farming.
