The global glufosinate market was valued at $544.8 million in 2018, and is projected to reach $2,097.7 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 19.0% from 2019 to 2026. Glufosinate is a naturally occurring herbicide isolated from two species of Streptomyces fungi. It is widely used as a substitute of glyphosate and paraquat and is used to control a wide range of weeds such as morning glories, hemp sesbania (Sesbania bispinosa), Pennsylvania smartweed (Polygonum Pensylvanicum), and others. Its usage as a crop desiccator facilitates harvesting. Rise in concern toward wide usage of agrochemicals in various crops has led to a shift toward bio-based solutions, which is anticipated to boost growth of the glufosinate market.
Major factors expected to drive the demand for glufosinate in the future are its broad weed spectrum and high efficacy. Use of glufosinate is considerably safe on crop plants when compared with other herbicides, and it can be used in combination with other herbicides, which makes it a lucrative option for both manufacturers and farmers. Glufosinate herbicides cause toxicity in animals and flora & fauna, which is anticipated to hamper the growth of the market.
The global glufosinate market is segmented into crop type, formulation type, and region.
