Global herbicides market is expected to grow at a steady rate during the forecast period. The global herbicides market is driven by the growing production of cereals, grains, fruits & vegetables, among others. This increase in production is necessary to fulfill the demand of the surging global population. Additionally, technological advancements and adoption of advanced farming techniques such as precision agriculture, smart plantation, among others are further expected to positively impact the growth of market over the next few years.

The global herbicides market is segmented based on type, mode of action, crop type company and region. Based on type, the market can be categorized into glyphosate, diquat, 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid and others. The diquat segment is expected to hold a significant market share during the forecast years. This can be ascribed to its increased use after paraquat got banned by various environment protection agencies. Diquat is similar in chemical properties to paraquat and is also a non-selective contact herbicide. Therefore, it is now being used as a substitute to paraquat, thereby driving the growth of segment.

Regionally, the global herbicides market has been segmented into Asia-Pacific, North America, South America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, North America is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast years in the overall herbicides market since the application of herbicides is not limited to agricultural fields in the region, but they are also used for weed management in lawns and forests.

Major players operating in the global herbicides market include BASF SE, E.I. Du Pont De Nemours and Company, Monsanto Company, Bayer AG, Syngenta AG, FMC Corporation, Platform Specialty Products Corporation, Nufarm Limited, Nissan Chemical Industries Ltd., Drexel Chemical Company, Adama Agricultural Solutions Ltd, Corteva Agriscience, American Vanguard Corporation, Marrone Bio Innovations Inc., Valent Biosciences Corp, Wilbur-Ellis Company, Chemtura Corporation, Cheminova A/S, Agrium Inc., Element Solutions Inc. and others.
