Agricultural fumigants play a significant role in agriculture, turf grass and nursery which makes soil fumigation a beneficialprocess for farmers as well as food consumers. Fumigation is a pest control technique in which the land is filled with gaseous fumigants to free the land from disinfectants. Soil fumigants are implemented before crop plantation to eradicate the pests present in the soil.
Soil fumigants fights againstsoil-borne pests, including nematodes, fungi, bacteria, weeds, and insects. Particularly used for potato, tomato,carrot,and strawberry, and among various other fruits and vegetables. When applied to the soil, it instantly gets converted into gas and forms a protection layer around the root;this in turn protects the crop from harmful pathogens present in the soil.A fumigant product provides sustainable and cost-effective solutions in the agriculture industry to raise plant yields despite of any geography. Hence,fumigants are found to resolvethe problems caused by one or multiple pathogens. Commonly used fumigants are 1,3-dichloropropene (1,3-D),methyl bromide, methyl iodide dimethyl disulfide, chloropicrin, metam potassium, dazomet, and metam sodium.
Market players in this segment are working hard to develop various products that contain various and differentingredients to control the growth of various pathogens.Majorly soil fumigants provide good benefits like protection of plants from numerous pathogens and enhancing the crop yield. Growing demand for food worldwide over the past few years has propelled the demand for soil fumigants.
The market driving factors for soil fumigant marketplaceare high frequency of crop diseases and growing demand for food in both developed and emerging nations, growth in per hectare production to meet food demand leads to high demand for soil fumigants. Growing demand for organic foods will boost demand for soil fumigants. Furthermore, innovative production techniques without disturbing crop yield will enhance demand for soil fumigants globally.
However, the U.S and Europe market restraints are strict environmental protection laws andmethyl bromidebeing dangerous to ozone is being restricted as it is most commonly used soil fumigants.
On the basis of type, the global soil fumigant marketplaceis segmented into methyl bromide, chloropicrin, metam sodium, methyl bromide, 1-3Dichloropropene, aluminum phosphide, magnesium phosphide, propylene oxide, sulfuryl fluoride and dazomet.
On the basis of application, the global soil fumigant marketplaceis bifurcated into soil and warehouse. Soil segment is bifurcated into nursery, field, greenhouse and transplant bed. Warehouse segment is further classified into silo and stack. Warehouse dominates this market segment owing to necessity of crop protection to reduce the losses of stored crops. It is projected to grow at a higher CAGR for the forecast period. Soil fumigation results into good quality seeds and enhances crop performance by eradicatingweed and removing parasitic attack by nematodes.
On the basis of form, the global agricultural fumigant marketplaceis segmented into gas, solid and liquid. The liquid form accounts for largest share in the global marketplace. The gaseous form is estimated to grow at a higher CAGR for the forecast period owing it as the most effective way to nullify insects in stored grains and on crops or soil.
On the basis of geography, the global agricultural fumigant marketplaceis segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East and Africa. APAC regions are expected to witness a larger market share owing to rising economic growth and food demands. Rising population in China is another factor that boosts the soil fumigant market in this region. North America is expected to be the second largest player on global level. Middle-East and other regions are potential markets owing to rapid economic and industrial growth in the past decade.
The key players in the market are AMVAC Chemical Corporation, Bayer CropScience AG, Arkema, BASF SE, Trinity Manufacturing, Inc,Syngenta AG, Chemtura Corporation,Arysta LifeScience Limited, The Dow Chemical Company, Great Lakes Solutions, and Novozymes.
