Agriculture surfactants are the additives used in agrochemical formulations to improve the effectiveness of agricultural pesticides. Agricultural surfactants decrease the surface tension of water in the spray solution of pesticides, and thereby improves its wettability, spreading ability, retention, and penetration on the leaf surface. Surfactants reduce the required quantity of pesticides since fewer active compounds are needed during foliar uptake, thus decreases the overall cost and pollution.
An increase in the adoption of precision farming, along with the necessity to protect the crops from pests are factors driving the growth of the agricultural surfactants market. Besides these, an increase in the demand for green solutions is also responsible for driving the growth of the market.
The exclusive COVID 19 impact analysis provides an analysis of micro and macro-economic factors on the Asia Pacific agricultural surfactant market. Also, complete analysis of changes on agricultural expenditure, economic and international policies on supply and demand side. The report also studies the impact of the pandemic on global economies, international trade, business investments, GDP, and marketing strategies of key players present in the market. Food and nutrition are an integral part of people's lives and spending on these products along with the growing emphasis on self-care to reduce hospitalization or medical aids, contribute towards the exponential growth of food fortifying agents even in health crises.
The study analyses the Asia Pacific agricultural surfactant market based on type, substrate type, application, and geography.
Non-ionic, anionic, cationic, and amphoteric are the types of the market. Non-ionic agricultural surfactants accounted for the largest share in the market. Non-ionic and are used for general wetting and spreading. Moreover, non-ionic surfactants are usually sold for being added to herbicide spray solutions. These surfactants are good dispersing agents, stable in cold water, and are less toxic to both plants and animals.
Synthetic and biobased are the major subtract types of agricultural surfactant. The synthetic agricultural surfactant segment accounted for the largest market size through the forecast period. At present, most surfactants available in the market are synthesized from petroleum-based feedstock such as kerosene, ethylene, benzene, and n-paraffins. This segment dominated the market, owing to the high consumption of herbicides and fungicides that consist of surfactants in the range of 1%–10%.
The market finds applications in herbicide, pesticide, and fungicide. Fungicide held a lion’s share in the market. The herbicides segment accounted for the major share of the agricultural surfactants market. Agricultural surfactants are almost always present in herbicide treatment solutions to improve spray droplet retention on and penetration of active ingredients into plant foliage.
Geographically, the Asia Pacific agricultural surfactant market is studied across the countries of India, China, Japan, Australia, and the Rest of APAC. India is the fastest growing country in the Asia Pacific agricultural surfactant market. Enormous agricultural growth due to expanding the population, fertile & arable land, main agriculture occupation dependent population, lucrative government schemes, growing agriculture-related R&D & farming techniques is likely to contribute significantly to the market growth over the forecast period.
The key competitor of this market includes Asahi Kasei Medical Company Limited, CNPC Jilin Chemical Corporation Limited, Nufarm, and others.
The study analyses the Asia Pacific agricultural surfactant market based on type, substrate type, application, crop application, and geography. Based on the type market is segmented into non-ionic, anionic, cationic, and amphoteric. Non-ionic agricultural surfactants market size is expected to rise significantly in the projected timeframe. Synthetic and biobased are the major subtract types of agricultural surfactant. The synthetic agricultural surfactants market may witness appreciable gains in the forecast time. The market finds applications in herbicide, pesticide, and fungicide. Fungicide dominates the agricultural surfactant market by application. The herbicides segment accounted for the major share of the agricultural surfactants market. Geographically, the Asia Pacific agricultural surfactant market is studied across the countries of India, China, Japan, Australia, and the Rest of the World.
