The South African Pesticides Industry: This report focuses on the manufacture of pesticides and other agrochemical products in South Africa. Agricultural producers face many challenges that have seen them increasingly adopt farming methods that use genetically modified organisms (GMOs) to respond to climatic conditions and the changing market structure. Together with the expected rapid population growth, and resultant growing demand for food, there has been increased use of agrochemicals to protect crops and improve yields.

Health and Environmental Concerns: South Africa is a net importer of pesticides and is likely to remain so because of the high costs of research and development, and the fact that cost efficiencies cannot be achieved locally. The production of pesticides remains a controversial subject with the health of people, animals and plants a major concern. Glyphosate, the most used herbicide by volume in South Africa and other parts of the world, faces a ban after a World Health Organisation aligned research institute found that it could be carcinogenic. In response to growing criticism of the use of pesticides and GMOs, large multinational corporations have over the years invested in companies supporting organic farming, and especially in the development of biopesticides, which are natural pesticides derived from animals, plants, bacteria, and certain minerals.

Report Coverage:
The report on the Manufacture of Pesticides and other Agrochemical Products discusses the current state of the domestic industry, the growing importance of the African market, illustrated by a number of recent mergers and acquisitions, and factors influencing the success of the manufacturing sector. The report profiles 13 companies, including Nulandis, part of AECI’s Speciality Chemicals division and South African subsidiaries of multinationals, Syngenta, Dow, Bayer, BASF and Arysta LifeScience. Also included are smaller unlisted players, such as Kombat (Pty) Ltd, a manufacturer and distributor of pesticides to farmers, nurseries, co-operatives and chain stores.
