Increasing Instances of Herbicide-Induced Crop Damage Drive the Herbicide Safeners Market

The herbicide safeners market is projected to reach USD 1,206.7 million by 2023, from USD 851.8 million in 2018, at a CAGR of 7.22%. The market is driven by the increased use of herbicides, especially in the developing regions of Asia Pacific and South America. Additionally, with the growing concerns of herbicide injury to the target crops, safeners are used to reduce the crop damage without limiting their activity on the targeted weed species.

Target Audience:

  • Herbicide, herbicide safener, herbicide surfactants, herbicide adjuvants, and other pesticide manufacturers/formulators/importers/exporters
  • Intermediary suppliers, including wholesalers and traders
  • Research institutes and organizations
  • Government pesticide authorities and regulatory bodies such as the USDA, FAO, PAN, and Eurostat
  • Farm cooperative societies and agrochemical industry associations

Key Players:

  • DowDuPont (US)
  • BASF (Germany)
  • Bayer (Germany)
  • Nufarm (Australia)
  • ADAMA (Israel)
  • Syngenta (Switzerland)
  • Arysta LifeScience (US)
  • Drexel Chemical Company (US)

Make an Inquiry:

Based on region, the market has been segmented as follows:

  • North America
  • Asia Pacific
  • Europe
  • South America
  • RoW (Africa and the Middle East)

The North American market accounted for the largest share in 2017, due to the availability of safeners in commonly used herbicide formulations such as S-metalochlor and acetochlor from players such as DowDuPont (US), Syngenta (Switzerland), and Bayer (Germany). Moreover, these companies have been able to develop and introduce safeners in these regions for herbicide applications in corn and soybean crops.

The market for herbicide safeners in the Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2018 to 2023, owing to the increasing demand for pesticides in the cultivation of crops such as rice, corn, and soybean in the region, which has been significant growth in the past five years. Thus, with increasing use of pesticides, including herbicides, the demand for products such as adjuvants and safeners, which can improve the efficiency of pesticides and reduce environmental risks, is expected to increase during the forecast period.
