Market Insights
According to the South African Department of Science and Technology, 86% of maize and 85% of soy in South Africa are genetically modified, and most of the country’s crops are sprayed with the weed killer, Roundup, which contains glyphosate.

The agrochemical companies, including the top companies, are mostly focused on the production of pesticides. Also, companies in the region are concentrating on import of fertilizers from other countries, with little focus on production in the country.

Various product innovations in the African agrochemicals market are taking place. For instance, Bayer introduced its fungicide, Luna Experience©, in Egypt, in 2015.

Market Dynamics
Considerable availability of arable land, along with cheap labor and demand for diversified agricultural use, is the major driver likely to push the African agrochemicals market. However, illegal pesticides trading, inefficient infrastructure, and unstable political conditions are the probable constraining factors.


The market has been segmented, by the product type, into fertilizers, pesticides, adjuvants, and plant-growth regulators. Based on the application type, the market has been segmented into crop-based and non-crop based. Geographically, the market covers Egypt, South Africa, and the rest of Africa. In 2015, the African agrochemical market was valued at about USD 2.1 billion, which accounts for 3.5% of the global market value. The African fertilizer demand is expected to register a CAGR of 3.60%, due to intensive agriculture practices. Among the synthetic fertilizers, the nitrogenous fertilizer market is the largest, followed by phosphate, and potassic fertilizers.
