Market Scenario:

Fungicides are a class of pesticides, which primarily consists of biological organisms or chemical compounds. They are widely used in the agricultural segment, which help to restrict the fungal diseases by inhibiting or killing the fungus responsible for the crop disease. The most commonly used active ingredient for fungicides preparation is sulfur. The most common chemical fungicides available in market includes: Dithiocarbamates, Phenylamides, Benzimidazoles, Triazoles, Chloronitriles, Strobilurins and others.
Moreover, growing demand for organic fruits & vegetables and their awareness towards health is boosting the fungicides market growth. Furthermore, high acceptance for integrated pest management (IPM) by the crop cultivator’s is adding fuel to the growth of the fungicides market. However, toxicity caused due the consumption of fungicides and stringent laws in the use of certain fungicides for crop production may hinder the market growth over the review period. Nevertheless, all these factors are projected to contribute to the estimated CAGR of 5.4% of fungicides market during the forecast period 2017-2023.

Key Players:

Some of the key players profiled in the global fungicides market:  BASF SE (Germany), E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company (U.S.), FMC Corporation (U.S.), Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd. (Japan), Adama Agricultural Solutions Ltd. (Israel), Bayer CropScience AG (Germany), DowDuPont Inc. (U.S.), Bioworks, Inc.(U.S.), Certis U.S.A. LLC (U.S.), Monsanto Company (U.S.)



Fungicides are segmented on the basis of type, which includes chemical fungicides, bio-fungicides, and others. Among both, triazoles holds the major market share followed by strobilurins in the chemical fungicides segment. The primary reason for the growth of triazoles is their extensive use for the prevention of soybean rust, which is considered to be a fungal pathogen. However, high demand for bio-fungicides in crop protection is projected to uplift the market of fungicides at global level in the review period.


On the basis of mode of treatment, the fungicides market is segmented into seed treatment, soil treatment, and others. The seed treatment segment is dominating the market owing to ease of fungicides use on seeds by spraying technique. Furthermore, spraying of fungicides on fruits, stems and leaves is also easy.


On the basis of the form, the fungicides market is segmented into powder, liquids, and others. The liquid form is dominating in this segment owing to its easy use.


On the basis of application, the fungicides market is segmented in fruits and vegetables, cereals and pulses, oilseeds and grains, and others.  Among all the applications, fruits and vegetables segment is dominating the market owing to increasing health awareness regarding organic fruits & vegetables in the population. However, the demand for cereals and pulses is predicted to experience a high growth owing to health benefits associated with the consumption of organic pluses and cereals.
