                                              Abstract, Snapshot, Market Analysis & Market Definition: Global Agricultural Fumigants Market

The global agricultural fumigants market size was estimated at USD 856.15 million in 2017. It is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 5.0% over the forecast period. Evolving requirements pertaining to crop protection techniques and post-harvest practices is driving the growth.
Phosphine is the most dominant product, which is extensively used in closed warehouses to protect the harvested crops from insects and other pest attacks. They have the ability to diffuse easily and penetrate into bulks of stored grains as well as actively perform fumigation activity for more than a week, post-application.
Agricultural soil fumigants fall under restricted use category of pesticides and this directly implies that all the products can only be used by authorized applicators across the globe. There are numerous soil fumigating techniques, such as drip tubing, non-tarped bedded, tarped broadcast application and more, which differ based on types of soil, pests, and crops.
Liquid variant is the most dominant form and is anticipated to witness the fastest growth compared to its counterparts. This form is typically injected in the soil, which transforms into a protective gas layer around the roots to prevent them from degrading due to pest attack. There are multiple regulations laid down globally in term of gaseous variants because they are toxic to human health and are simultaneously hazardous to the environment.

Key Players, Recent Developments & Regional Insights: Global Agricultural Fumigants Market

1,3-dichloropropene is an essential fumigant and is considered as a feasible substitute to Bromomethane (MeBr). 1,3-dichloropropene contains lower vapor pressure and kH as well as higher degradation rates and high level of sorption coefficients as compared to bromomethane. A higher sorption coefficient eventually enables the compound to be more persistent in soil.
Chloropicrin is often used as an alternative to methyl bromide. The impact of chloropicrin is quite negative when bacterial flora changes are considered in soil function. Environmental deterioration is also a key criterion while using Chloropicrin compound. Chloropicrin is often combined with 1,3-dichloropropene for deriving the desired results in agriculture.
Metam potassium is usually applied for premium crop and plant cultivation, which includes strawberries, carrots, tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, green peas, and sweet peppers among others. Growing of tree nurseries and ornamental plants also demands premium-grade Metam Potassium.
Phosphine is the fastest growing product globally regardless of its potential to cause human health hazard. This is toxic as well as flammable and should be applied only by authorized applicators. Phosphine application should be done for a long duration and in closed and compact houses for maximum results. This practice should be done based on the area to be treated rather than the amount of commodity and is strictly banned for usage in spaces, which are not absolutely sealed, as they have the potential to cause serious damage to animal and humans in the vicinity.

Regional Insights
North America was the leading region in terms of volume consumption and accounted for around 34.5% market share in 2017. The region comprises of multiple crop protection chemical manufacturers and the need for sustainable agriculture is ever-growing. The region is also highly regulated by numerous regulations to protect farming. The manufacturers are compelled to adhere to the established guidelines to ensure sustainability of the product and to achieve maximum output.
Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing regional segment over the forecast period on account of numerous macro-economic factors, such as increasing availability and awareness regarding usage of these products as a crop protection technique. Increasing number of manufacturers owing to cheap labor is anticipated to drive the regional market in the forthcoming years.
Europe is one of the significant consumers of pesticides and counterparts on account of its growing agriculture industry, aided by land availability and suitable weather conditions that lead to the vast production of multiple crops. Conversely, multiple agencies are establishing regulations regarding the excessive utilization of soil protection chemicals in the region. This, in turn, has paved the way for organic farming practices across Europe.
In 2009, the European Union pesticide policy declared multiple fumigants and pesticides including Metam Sodium and 1,3-Dichloropropene as hazardous substances to the human health and environment. However, later in the same year, the council declared to its member states to continue the usage of the aforementioned substances in a specified quantity, which was later categorized under essential use.
Agricultural Fumigants Market Share Insights
North America and Asia Pacific are the major regional markets. The market is majorly dependent on the area under cultivation and the regulations in various countries. Rising population in Asia Pacific is expected to boost demand for these products as they have an important role to play in improving agriculture productivity. Presence of manufacturers in India and China is expected to benefit the growth of the industry across Asia Pacific.
Suppliers are a vital component in the value chain as they help in bridging the gap for manufacturers and simultaneously cut out on extra expenditure. The suppliers help increase the reach of these materials as they act as an intermediate for farmers in remote areas for the product supplies. The major focus of manufacturers lies on increasing their product reach as it helps to strengthen their regional dominance.
The key players in the market are Bayer CropScience AG; The Dow Chemical Company; Great Lakes Solutions; Arkema; AMVAC Chemical Corporation; Syngenta AG; Chemtura Corporation; BASF SE; Trinity Manufacturing, Inc.; Arysta LifeScience Limited; and Novozymes.
