UAE Pesticides Market stood at USD183.32 million in 2022 and is expected to grow at a steady rate of 4.51% during the forecast period, on account of rising crop production and a surge in the demand for home gardens and mini gardens for offices. The agriculture sector in UAE has been experiencing development for the last 30 years. Due to the lack of heavy rains, the agriculture sector in the country adopts technologically advanced machinery, as well as technologically advanced pesticides and other related products to increase their crop yields. These factors are actively driving the growth of the UAE Pesticides Market in the upcoming five years, 2023-2028.
Additionally, the rapidly increasing population of the country is also responsible, as the demand to feed such a huge population also depends on the increased production of food crops and thus supports the growth of the UAE Pesticides Market in the upcoming years.Although, the use of alternative techniques such as integrated pest management (IPM) and crop rotation has reduced the use of pesticides in farms.
Thus, maintaining a mild restraint on the growth of the UAE Pesticides Market.
Furthermore, the consistent research and technological advancement in product manufacturing and innovative methods of application of pesticides are expected to aid the growth of the UAE Pesticides Market in the forecast period, until 2028.
Rise in Crop Production
In the agriculture sector, pesticides play a vital role in controlling the growth of weeds, pests, and diseases.According to Agri-Farming, the total arable land in UAE is around 1600 square kilometers out of a total land area of around 71,023 square kilometers.
Majorly the land is utilized for the production of dates across the UAE.The main reason behind this is the appropriate climatic conditions for supporting date production in large quantities.
Additionally, pesticides assist farmers in producing nutrient-dense crops that are essential for human health.The vital nutrients that come from fruits and vegetables are more widely available and less expensive owing to high crop production.
Therefore, rising crop production is necessary to support the growing food demand which in turn is driving the growth of the pesticides market. For instance, in 2020, Abu Dhabi achieved remarkable growth in agricultural production, including animals and plants, with a total value of USD 3.73 billion (Dh13.7 billion). This indicates an increase of 12% compared to 2019, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.5% for 2017-2020, according to the report issued by the Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority (ADAFSA). Growing crop production is estimated to boost the demand for pesticides in the UAE which in turn will drive the growth of the pesticides market.
New technology like nanotechnology, organic farming, etc is being used by toxicologists and horticulturists to create new, eco-friendly pesticides that are considerably safer and more efficient.With the evolving technology, it is appropriate to say that the effective research and development of technologically advanced instruments and methods to satisfy consumer demands would support market growth and benefit the market players as well as the consumers.
New market players may focus on research and development to provide such products and services that satisfy consumer demand as well as benefit the market players in building their brand value. Furthermore, consolidation of major players, safety regulations leading to new product developments, and increasing support from government agencies to promote modern farming methods are anticipated to fuel the growth of the UAE pesticide market.
Awareness of Locally Grown Food
According to the National Food Security Strategy 2018, the UAE’s agriculture sector has gradually increased its contribution to the local market in recent years.The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly increased and improved local food production, increased awareness of climate change and sustainability, and the number of health-conscious consumers shopping for fresh vegetables.
Moreover, fruits and vegetables grown globally are stored for days and have lengthy transport time before reaching UAE supermarket shelves.This means reduced freshness and a higher carbon footprint.
This key factor is fueling the demand for locally-grown food in the UAE.Moreover, locally grown food is fresh, economic, and not preserved in deep freezers as they are readily available in the market at low prices.
To assist agri-tech initiatives in the desert nation, the United Arab Emirates has ordered government organizations including the military and medical authorities to purchase locally grown food to minimize the import of agricultural goods from other countries. Hence, the demand for locally grown food is driving the growth of pesticide use in the agriculture sector in the UAE.
