INTRODUCTION

Agrochemicals include specialty chemicals and related products that are highly valuable for agricultural uses. Agrochemicals, also referred to as agricultural chemicals, refer to specifically engineered chemical products used in agriculture and include a broad range of pesticides and fertilizers. They play a crucial role in agriculture, as they improve crop performance, increase crop yields, and control pests and weeds that impede plant growth.

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
- Define and identify key market segments and the market structure of the agrochemical market.
- Measure and estimate the global agrochemical market and its segments, including agrochemical types (i.e., fertilizers and pesticides) and geographic regions.
- Identify key market dynamics and the factors impacting the global agrochemical market and its subsegments.
- Identify the trends, gaps and opportunities in each of the micro markets.
- Focus exclusively on geographic segmentation. Analyze trends and opportunities in the major regions: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and rest of world (ROW).
- Identify major stakeholders, product portfolios and recent developments, and describe the competitive landscape.
- Evaluate key patents and recent developments in agrochemical technologies that are expecting completion.
- Analyze emerging technologies and investments that are driving opportunities in agrochemicals.
- Analyze the trend toward bio-based products, or rather organic-based, agrochemicals such as biofertilizers, biopesticides, biofungicides, bioinsecticides, among others.

SCOPE OF THE REPORT
This research report presents an in-depth analysis of the global agrochemical market by product type and regional geographic markets. It covers the major categories of agrochemicals used for crop protection across the globe. The evolving trends and ongoing research and developments in the field of agrochemical developments have been studied in detail. The report analyses the active ingredients used in the market and not the formulations.

This study highlights the emergence of genetically modified crops, the importance of crop protection, and the pros and cons of pesticide use. Special importance has been given to key market developments such as collaborative activities, important acquisitions, new product launches and strategic agreements between top players. An analysis of the key drivers and factors either affecting or influencing the growth of this market is also included in this report. The analysis also includes the current and projected markets for agrochemicals across geographic regions while considering different parameters (e.g., government regulations, climatic conditions and crop production).

The global agrochemical market is mainly segmented into types and regions. Types of agrochemicals are principally categorized into pesticides and fertilizers. Pesticides primarily include herbicides, insecticides and fungicides. Nitrogenous, phosphatic, potassic and biofertilizers are covered under the fertilizer category. In terms of geography, the market is categorized by North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and the rest of the world (ROW). ROW primarily consists of economies such as Brazil, Argentina, Egypt, South Africa, Chile, Colombia, Turkey, Iraq, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

METHODOLOGY
Both primary and secondary research methodologies were used in preparing this study. The report provides estimated values both in kilotons (SI System) and the United States Dollar (USD). Estimates of current market demand are made for 2015 and are projected over the next five years from 2016 through 2021. Projections are made in terms of constant U.S. dollars (2015), unadjusted for inflation. Growth is presented in terms of the compound annual growth rate (CAGR). Where precise information was not available, a projection was made using reasonable assumptions and estimates based on historical data. Market data are based on manufacturers’ total revenues.

The global agrochemicals market was assessed and calculated via a bottom-up approach that involved identifying the market revenues of the micro markets that make up the macro markets. The following process was designed to ensure quality and consistency of estimates:
