Agriculture Bactericides Market Dynamics, Segments And Supply Demand -2023
The Global Agriculture Bactericides Market is presumed to expand at 4.7% CAGR during the forecast period (2017-2023) owing to the rising demand for food grains, asserts Market Research Future (MRFR). Agriculture bactericides are crop protectants used by the farmers in the agriculture produce. Bactericides comprise chemical or biological compounds that restrict bacterial infection and are extensively used for crop protection. Copper-based bactericides, amide bactericides, and dithiocarbamate bactericides are some of the commercial chemical agriculture bactericides widely available in the market.
Drivers and Constraints Impacting the Market
With the change in climate, there has been a noticeable increase in the pest life cycle which is considered to be one of the major factors driving the Agriculture Bactericides Market both in developed and developing countries. The increasing population has escalated the demand for crop production. This has resulted in the demand for food security and crop damage caused by the bacteria, thereby propelling the market growth during the assessment period. Moreover, the growing demand for crop protectants from bacterial infection is estimated to foster the market growth at a global level. Also, acceptance of integrated pest management (IPM) by the crop cultivators is further fueling the market growth.
On the flip side, toxicity caused due to the consumption of agriculture bactericides is estimated to reach the market growth in the coming years. Workers handling such bactericides on a daily basis can suffer acute health problems such as dizziness, abdominal pain, nausea, headaches, vomiting, and eye and skin problems.
