Population Growth and Subsequent Increase in Food Consumption

The global population was pegged at 7.6 Billion in 2017 with a change of 1.12% during 2016-2017. High population growth has fueled food consumption globally, which has surged the demand for agricultural products. This has contributed towards an increase in the use of agriculture chemicals to enhance crop production and developments in the agriculture sector.

Thus, the use of agrochemicals such as fertilizers and pesticides has become a necessity to meet the growing demand for food. This is also driving the demand for new technologies and innovations in the agriculture industry, globally. Agrochemicals play an important role in enhancing crop yield and quality

At the end of forecast period, the pesticides segment of agrochemicals is anticipated to grow and become 1.54X of its value size in 2018. This segment will projected to create an Incremental dollar opportunity nearly US$ 67.19 Bn over the forecast period.

Shrinking Crop Harvesting Area and Need for Better Yield per Unit Area of Farmland

Since the past few years, population growth has been translating to a decline in farmland area. Rapid urbanization and industrialization have been shrinking the cultivation land with growth in the number of industries, houses, highways and many other infrastructural buildings.

In the past eight years, the total crop area harvested has declined with a significant CAGR of about 3.5%. In 2010, the total crop area available for harvesting was 1.8 Bn Hectare, which reduced to 1.3 Bn Hectare in 2017.

The fertilizers segment of agrochemicals is projected to grow with 3.9% CAGR, in terms of value, over the forecast period. Rising demand for a better yield in shrinking arable land and higher production of crop with better quality, and also to maintain fertility of the soil are drive the agrochemicals market

Agricultural Development, Supported by Economic Growth

As per IMF data, the global economy grew by 3.8% (real GDP) in 2017. Economic growth improves the standard of living, alongside the spending power of people. Increasing spending power leads to a change in the eating habits of the population.

Growth in food demand has been stronger than population growth, due to the changing eating habits of people. This, in turn, has been accelerating the demand for fertilizers and pesticides. Fertilizers and pesticides are used to improving crop yield, fertility of soil and enhance production. Therefore, the demand for agrochemicals is expected to grow in tandem with the growth of the agriculture industry
