Market Overview:

Adjuvant is a broad term that embraces ingredients added to products used for crop protection to enhance pesticide activity, modify characteristics of the product formulation, or to modify the characteristics of a spray solution. An agricultural adjuvant is added to a pesticide product or pesticide spray mixture to enhance the pesticide’s performance along with the physical properties of the spray mixture. Thus, usage of agricultural adjuvants not only boosts the pesticide’s effectiveness but also helps minimize the problems associated with spray application.

Agricultural adjuvants help in enhancing the effectiveness of pesticide products which in turn improves fertility, crop protection, and plant growth regulation. Increasing population and growing demand for food have led to high agricultural productivity which is driving the growth of the agricultural adjuvants market. Moreover, rising demand for agrochemicals globally is majorly boosting the growth of the agricultural adjuvants market.

Growing acceptance of modern farming is adding fuel to the growth of agricultural adjuvants market. To improve the efficiency of agricultural adjuvants, major players are investing in research and development which is further boosting the growth of the global agricultural adjuvants market. Moreover, bio-based agricultural adjuvants have a high opportunity in this market. However, the uncertain regulatory policies may hamper the growth of the market. Nevertheless, all these factors are projected to contribute to the estimated CAGR of 5.4% of agricultural adjuvants market during the forecast period, 2017-2023.
