Outlook of the crop protection chemicals market in LATAM

Technavios market research analyst predicts the crop protection chemicals market in LATAM to witness moderate growth at a CAGR of around 7% during the forecast period. The increased farming of biofuel crops in Latin American countries is driving the growth of this market. Biofuels are sourced from energy crops that comprise wheat, soybean, corn, rapeseed, and sugarcane. APAC, Latin America, and MEA are expected to drive the demand for biofuels reducing the dependence on conventional fuels and their imports.

The increased regulations on the usage of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) is anticipated to fuel the growth of the market during the forecast period. POPs are chemicals that are resistant to environmental degradation and accumulate in the food chain. The 2001 Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants banned the use of POPs, such as DDT, and any kind of insecticide and pesticide that can act as a pollutant for agricultural purposes as they pose severe risks to human and animal health. This initiative has led to the use of environmentally friendly insecticides that can undergo biodegradation and have minimal impact on the environment such as pyrethrums and pyrethroids.
