Global Agricultural Adjuvants Industry Analysis: Market Size, Share, and Growth Forecast 2032


Market Overview:

The global agricultural adjuvants market size was valued at USD 2.92 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 6.59 billion by the end of 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.61% during the forecast period based on our analysis in the existing report.

This information is presented by Fortune Business Insights, in its report titled, “Agricultural Adjuvants Market, 2019-2032.”

The primary driver propelling the global market is the rise in demand for crop protection chemicals. In the past ten years, there has been a greater emphasis placed on raising awareness of the potential environmental effects of improper pesticide use. This factor is improving the market’s revenue by fueling demand for agricultural adjuvants.


Insecticides to Emerge as Most Attractive Product Type due to Growing Demand in the Asia Pacific

Several adjuvant products available in the marketplace are mainly intended to offer a resolution of spray-mix incompatibilities resulting from the combination of one or more agrochemicals. Activator adjuvants especially surfactants are the major category of adjuvants that account for the largest market share.

Adjuvants application is projected to continue to dominate with herbicides application

Among applications, the herbicides segment accounts for the largest share as they are a major group of crop protection chemicals used in agriculture. Post-emergence herbicide effectiveness is significantly influenced by plant factors such as age, size, and growing conditions.

Drivers and Restraints:

Increasing Research and Development to Advance Agricultural Adjuvant Application Technology

Drones, or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), are taking off in popularity thanks to their accuracy, budget-friendly prices, ease of use, and increased safety features. To keep up with this global surge in demand from farmers, big companies are jumping in with new inventions. For example, Clariant, a top name in agricultural specialty chemicals, just launched DropForward in April 2022. This system focuses on delivering precise applications using adjuvants and co-formulants.

Regional Insights:

North America to Lead During the Forecast Period

Currently, North America and Europe are the two biggest markets for agricultural adjuvants, and they are anticipated to continue to have a sizable share of the global market during the forecast period. In North America and Europe, the market is being driven by strict regulations on the use of crop protection chemicals to save the environment from harmful impacts.

Due to the expanding market for crop protection chemicals, South America and the Asia-Pacific region are expected to have rapid market expansion. Another factor boosting the global market in these two regions is the rising knowledge among crop growers of the advantages of adjuvants with the spray chemicals.
