Pesticide inert ingredients for the herbicide segment is estimated to have the highest share during the forecast period.
Pesticide inert ingredients are used in herbicide spray solutions to accentuate the emulsifying or other surface modifying properties of liquids. Inert ingredients are mostly present in herbicide treatment solutions with the aim to improve the penetration of active ingredients into plant foliage or to reduce foaming activity of the spray solution. Also, with reference to the herbicides available in the market, the amount of inert ingredients used in herbicide solutions are higher compared to insecticides and fungicides.
High adoption of inert ingredients in the North American region also drives the overall pesticide inert ingredients market. The major use of the formulation of herbicides is in the form of emulsifiers and solvents.
The dry segment in terms of forms of pesticide inert ingredients is projected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period.
Dry inert ingredients are available in various forms such as wettable powders, dust, granules, and talc. The dry form of inert ingredients is majorly used in the formulation of herbicides and rodenticides. Dry forms of pesticides help in attracting rodents in the fields and thus are preferred in agricultural fields for repelling and skilling rodents. The high share of herbicides in the pesticide industry also drives the market for dry inert ingredients.

The Asia Pacific is projected to witness the fastest growth in the inert ingredients market through 2023.
Agriculture is one of the largest industries in the Asia Pacific region, with a large share of farmland and good soil fertility. Moreover, the region is rich in plant diversity due to the wide variations in climate across countries. Even though there is a variation in the agriculture system from basic systems in India to the technically advanced ones in Japan, the agenda of food security is supported by local governments in the Asian countries. The Asia Pacific region is one of the leading consumers of pesticides across the globe, though the region mainly depends on imports of pesticide supply. Since inert ingredients are majorly consumed by pesticide manufacturers at the production facility during the formulation stage, and since countries such as India, Thailand, and Vietnam depend on imports for formulations, the market for inert ingredients is projected to be smaller compared to the Americas and Europe. However, with the increasing establishment of production plants in the Asian countries, the use of inert ingredients along with pesticide application is projected to increase in the future.
