Adjuvants for biological products

Adjuvants are mostly added to synthetic pesticides to improve their performance. However, these adjuvants undergo strict regulations and require high investment for production. Hence, there is a need to develop adjuvants that can be used in biological products such as biopesticides and biostimulants.

Adjuvant manufacturing companies are constantly adapting to the changing demands by developing novel products and technologies. With the increasing awareness of eco-friendly and sustainable products, the necessity to develop adjuvants that can be compatible with biological products has been increasingly realized. Sustainable and non-oil adjuvants are required to maintain the viability and pesticidal efficiency of agricultural biologicals such as biostimulants and biofertilizers.

By application, the herbicide segment is projected to dominate the agricultural adjuvants market during the forecast period.

The herbicide segment is projected to hold the largest market share in the agricultural adjuvants market during the forecast period as according to industry experts from prominent seed manufacturers, disease resistance and herbicide tolerance are traits that have been on demand, owing to the increasing instances of early germination pest attacks and regulations against cop protection chemicals. Cereals & grains accounted for the largest consumption of herbicides in North America and Asia Pacific, owing to the high cultivation of corn and wheat in countries such as the US and China.  

By adoption stage, the tank-mix segment is projected to dominate the agricultural adjuvants market during the forecast period.

Tank mix adjuvants are added to the farmer’s tank together with the pesticide for improving the performance of the active ingredients, along with mitigating the negative effects such as drift and bouncing. Tank mix adjuvants are added to the pesticides on the field by the crop growers before applying them over the crops. Tank mix adjuvants help in increasing the overall performance of the plant protection products. Adjuvants that are tank-mixed are mostly added to affect the efficacy of pesticides and are defined by the direct effect that they have on the crop-pesticide interaction.
