Key Findings
The global crop protection market is poised to grow during the forecast period of 2016-2023. Various reasons for growth of the crop protection market are rapidly increasing need for food due to continuously rising population, decrease in arable land, need for higher crop yield and increasing purchasing power.

Crop protection refers to usage of pesticides to protect crop from pest by controlling their population and safeguarding them so that no damage is caused to crop and their yield. Pesticides are an integral part of agriculture industry and although it’s a mature industry there are growing awareness and demand for biopesticides to minimize environmental harm. Certain pesticides like glyphosate, atrazine and chlorpyrifos have been phased out and this is expected to increase the demand for biopesticides. Biopesticides are made from animals, plants, bacteria and minerals and help in controlling pests by non-poisonous methods.

Crop protection market is segmented on the basis of geography, crop type, mode of application, form, origin and type. Various crop types for which pesticides are used are cereals and grains, fruits and vegetables, oilseeds and pulses and others. Mode of application of pesticides can be foliar spray, seed treatment and soil treatment. Pesticides can be either in liquid or solid form. Pesticide origin can be either synthetic or bio-based. Types of pesticides used for crop protection are herbicides, fungicides, insecticides and others.
