Market Lifecycle Stage
The agricultural adjuvants market is in the development phase. Increased research and development activities are underway to develop green agricultural adjuvants-based products, which are expected to increase due to the shift in consumer preference for organic food consumption.
Increasing investments in R&D of agricultural adjuvants is one of the major opportunities in the global agricultural adjuvants market. Moreover, the functions of agricultural adjuvants such as spreaders, stickers, thickening agents, compatibility agents, buffers/acidifiers, drift control agents, and antifoam agents are attracting farmers and applied to various crop types including cereals & grains, oilseeds & pulses, and fruits & vegetables crops.
Agricultural Adjuvants Market (by Application)
Agricultural adjuvants are mixed with various crop protection chemicals such as insecticide, herbicide, fungicide, and others to be sprayed over the crops/farms, which help in attaining better productivity. The chemical properties of adjuvants such as adhesion, spreading, and wetting increases the efficiency of the pesticide. Most adjuvants are mixed with crop protection chemicals in a tank and sprayed over the crops.
Agricultural Adjuvants Market (by Crop Type)
The agricultural adjuvants are used over various crop types such as cereals and pulses, oilseeds and pulses, fruits and vegetables, for yield and crop protection. Recently, the majority of the adjuvants used in fruits and vegetables are basically used in the prevention of various diseases. These adjuvants can be sprayed directly on the leaves as they kill pests by suffocating them.
Agricultural Adjuvants Market (by Formulation)
In terms of formulation, the agricultural adjuvants market is segmented into two major categories, including suspension concentrate and emulsifiable concentrate. Suspension concentrates consist of insoluble, solid active ingredients suspended in water with the aid of dispersing and wetting agents for safer and better application on crop surfaces.
Agricultural Adjuvants Market (by Function)
In terms of formulation, the agricultural adjuvants market is segmented into three major categories, including activator modifiers (surfactants and oil adjuvants), utility modifiers (compatibility agents, buffers/acidifiers, antifoam agents, drift control agents), and others (thickening agents, spreaders, stickers). Activator modifiers work to improve the biological performance of pesticides. These modifiers increase the herbicide activity by altering the characteristics, which include the particle size, spray distribution on the plant, viscosity of the spray, rate of herbicide intake, and the solubility of herbicide in the spray solution.
Agricultural Adjuvants Market (by Region)
The trends of the agricultural adjuvants market vary across different regions. The agricultural adjuvants market holds a prominent share in various countries of North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Japan, the U.K., China, and the Middle East and Africa. Presently, North America is at the forefront of the agricultural adjuvants market, with high market penetration in the countries such as the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
