The agrochemicals market is rapidly growing because of high demand for crop productivity globally.

Continuous advancements in the technology used in agriculture have led to a shift in farming practices. With the increased export and import of agricultural commodities across different geographies, especially in developing regions, new types of harmful organisms have emerged, leading to an increase in the demand for novel active ingredient products to safeguard crops.  Globalization of the agrochemical industry greatly impacts the Asian crop protection markets. With the highest population growth rate, increasing the need for food production, and economic growth, the demand for various agrochemicals, such as herbicides and pesticides, is increasing.

South America is projected to reach USD 73.2 billion during the forecast period.

Growth in this region is significantly contributed to by the growth in Brazil and Argentina, which are the world’s most potent agricultural producers and are expected to grow well above the regional average. Brazil and Argentina are major producers of soybean, and hence, these countries have a significant contribution to oilseed production across the globe. The trade policies of South American countries have also proved favorable for the growth of oilseeds.  According to FAOSTAT, published in 2022, Brazil is amongst the top four largest producers of agricultural products due to the availability of abundant land and rural labor force, followed by Argentina. Growth in South America is significantly contributed by the increase in the adoption of agrochemicals and advancements in farming techniques in Brazil and Argentina, with distribution channels established by global agrochemical players.

The key players in this market includes Bayer AG (Germany), Syngenta (Switzerland), and BASF (Germany) in this region.
