Agriculture Adjuvants Market Driver: Increase in the use of natural & sustainable adjuvants

Awareness of the environmental and health risks posed by chemically derived adjuvants has been increasing. Consequently, government authorities and adjuvant manufacturers are now prioritizing renewable and sustainable products. Companies are actively addressing the demand for natural adjuvants. For example, in March 2020, Stepan Company acquired Logos Technologies LLC’s NatSurFact business, which offers a line of bio-surfactants based on rhamnolipids sourced from renewable materials.

Agriculture Adjuvants Market Opportunities: Precision farming techniques to boost the application of adjuvants

Precision farming techniques, such as aerial spraying, smart irrigation, and variable rate application, are gaining popularity worldwide. Agriculture adjuvants optimize the performance of these techniques by ensuring better coverage, absorption, and penetration of agrochemicals, thereby creating opportunities for adjuvant manufacturers.

The cereals & grains crop type segment held the largest market share in the agricultural adjuvants market in 2022

Agricultural adjuvants play an essential role in agriculture’s cereal and grain segment. According to FAO, in 2022/23, global cereal production stood at 2,786.6 million tons, with wheat contributing 800.9 million tons and rice 516.9 million tons of production. With the growing production and demand for cereals & grains, the utilization of agricultural adjuvants is growing. Celeral & grains are consumed as a staple food in most countries worldwide, and protecting these crops from weather, pests, and weeds requires agricultural adjuvants. This is increasing the demand for agricultural adjuvants in cereals & grains.

North America held the largest share of the agricultural adjuvants market in 2022

The demand for agricultural adjuvants in North America is experiencing substantial growth due to several key factors. The increased cultivation of industrial crops such as corn and soybean is a major driver of this market expansion. According to reports from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the US produced 13.7 billion bushels of corn and 4.28 billion bushels of soybean in 2022. Despite a decline in the production of these crops in 2021, the use of agricultural adjuvants in the region is rapidly increasing.
