COVID-19 Impact on the Global Agricultural Adjuvants Market
The FAO has acknowledged that the spread of COVID- 19 pandemic is subsiding in a few countries and regions of the world. Still, it is also resurging or spreading quickly in some other countries such as Korea, Brazil, and India. This outbreak has affected significant elements of both food supply and demand. Border closures, quarantines, market supply chains, and trade disruptions have restricted people’s access to sufficient and nutritious sources of food, especially in countries hit hard by the virus. However, as the governments on a global level shut down borders and economies for restricting the spread of the coronavirus, the businesses observed major impacts on their international trades. Many markets are focusing on fulfilling their requirements for fertilizers, pesticides, and adjuvants by domestic companies. This is, however, causing an imbalance between the demand and supply quantities. However, some regions are completely dependent on imports and are facing tough situations. Adjuvants are majorly dependent on raw materials such as vegetable oils and petroleum for their production. Gradually the rise in the prices of these commodities has resulted in higher adjuvant prices. All these factors hampered the potential growth of the market at the beginning of 2020.

In recent years, companies have been developing eco-friendly bio-based adjuvants such as methylated seed oil (MSO), modified vegetable oils, and organo-modified siloxanes. These biologically derived adjuvants are considered environment-friendly due to their high level of safety and biodegradability. In the time of the COVID outbreak, the world population is showing a trend towards higher demand for organically produced foods. There is a lot of concern rising for hygienic, healthy, and nutritious food in the markets, with people concerned about health amid the virus outbreak. Thus the demand for green and organic adjuvants is seen to remain stable in the pandemic times to increase to organic farm produce.
