Market Overview:

The global generic crop protection market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for food owing to the growing population, and the need for better yield from crops due to shrinking arable land. Additionally, factors such as easy availability of generic crop protection products and their low cost are driving the market growth. Based on type, herbicides accounted for a major share of the global generic crop protection market in 2017. This can be attributed to their widespread use in agriculture for controlling weeds and pests. Fungicides are also expected to witness high demand during the forecast period owing to their ability protect crops from various fungal diseases. Insecticides are used extensively for controlling insect pests that cause significant damage to crops, thereby boosting their demand in the global market.

Global Generic Crop Protection Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Generic crop protection is the use of a chemical to protect crops from pests, diseases and weeds. The importance of generic crop protection is that it helps to ensure that crops are able to grow and produce food without being affected by pests, diseases or weeds.


Herbicide is a chemical used to kill unwanted plants. It's most commonly used in the form of an herbicide spray, but can also be applied as a seed treatment and incorporated into soil. Herbicides are primarily used to protect crops from competition, ensure their growth, and for harvesting purposes. They are also useful in controlling weed growth around harvest fields and gardens among other uses (such as forestry). Herbicides differ from pesticides in that they are selective; i.e.


Fungicides are pesticides that are applied to crops to protect them from fungal diseases. Fungicides can be classified as contact, systemic and non-systemic fungicides. Contact fungicides act on the plant surface where they come in direct contact with the plant tissues. Systemic fungicides penetrate into the tissues of plants where they remain active for a longer period of time.

Application Insights:

The market is segmented by application into cereals & grains, fruits & vegetables, oilseeds & pulses and others. The cereals & grains segment held the largest share in 2017. This can be attributed to the fact that this category of crops includes wheat, barley and maize which are majorly used to make food products such as bread and cornflakes. These crops are also grown extensively across all regions of the world especially in countries such as India and China where they are grown on a large scale for domestic consumption as well as for export purposes.

Growing demand for nutritious food coupled with rising disposable income levels has been encouraging farmers to grow more cereals especially during winters when other crops would suffer from low yield due to cold temperatures. This trend is expected to continue over the forecast period thereby driving demand globally generic crop protection market growth over the next eight years or so.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to witness a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period, owing to increasing demand for food production and rising consumer awareness regarding GM crops and pesticides. Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing regional market from 2018 to 2030 due to rapid urbanization, changing climate patterns, growing population along with increasing income levels that are resulting in increased spending on food products. Moreover, government initiatives such as “Make in India” campaign by Indian prime minister Narendra Modi are expected favorably impact industry growth through export trade activities thereby driving product demand across various application sectors including cereals & grains; oilseeds & pulses; fruits & vegetables; others).

Latin America has also been witnessing an increase in agricultural production output over past few years owing high crop yields achieved through modern farming practices coupled with adoption of improved seeds and fertilizers since ancient times (pre-Columbian era).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for food due to population growth
  • Rising income levels in developing countries
  • Urbanization and changing dietary habits
  • Proliferation of pests and diseases affecting crops
  • Advancements in crop protection technologies
