Overview of the Pesticides Market
China, India, and Japan are all agriculture-driven economies, which means that their reliance on pesticides to ensure high per-hectare productivity and increase agro-productivity capacity is immensely significant. Factors such as expanding population base, burgeoning demand for food, and need to minimize crop damage are largely responsible for the growth of the pesticides market in these three countries.
Improved economic conditions in these economies has resulted in change in food habits of consumers, growing popularity of biofuels, and rapid urbanization, which in turn, has resulted in increased pressure for greater crop production. Rise in demand for greater crop yield translates to surging demand for pesticides.
Among the three, China is the leading regional segment of the pesticides market in terms of revenue as well as consumption, and is expected to retain its dominance till the end of the forecast period. Even though there is a shortage of arable land in Japan stemming from widespread urbanization, the market is still registering a somewhat steady growth owing to the fact that farmers are forced to use more pesticides in order to maximize crop yield.
The market for pesticides in all three countries is met with persistent debate over the harmful effects of pesticides. This has had a negative impact on the overall market.
