“Global fungicides market projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.78%”
The global fungicides market is projected to reach a value of USD 19.17 billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 4.78% from 2016. The market is driven by factors such as growth in the crop production, ease of application, increase in need for food security for the increasing population, and rise in preference for fungicides. The change in farming practices (from traditional to conventional), clubbed with advanced technologies and promotion by the governments of many countries across the world also drives the demand for fungicides in the agricultural sector. However, factors such as lack of education and awareness among the farmers and rise in instances of environmental toxicology, are restraining the growth of the fungicides market.
