The Global Pesticides market was estimated at USD 80 billion in 2025, with a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period (2018-2025).
Pesticides are chemicals used to control pests. Most of the pesticides are served as plant protection products (also known as crop protection products), which protect plants from weeds, fungi, or insects. The market is driven by several factors such as limited natural resources, rising global demand, increased farming of biofuel crops and the use of genetically modified (GM) seeds.
Pesticides are mainly used in agriculture, home & garden, and Industrial & commercial places. Agriculture sector occupies the major share of the market. However, increasing demand for aesthetics at home and commercial spaces is expected to witness the highest CAGR in the coming years.
The Global Pesticides market is segmented by type into Insecticides, Herbicides, Fungicides, and Others. The herbicide is the largest segment covering around 44% of the global pesticides market followed by Fungicides and Insecticides.
Herbicides holds the highest market share among the pesticides.
Herbicides control weeds that compete with crops for light and nutrients. They are primarily classified into Selective herbicides and Non-selective herbicides. Of the total US$57 billion global crop protection market, herbicides occupy the major share with 44% (28% Selective and 16% Non-Selective).
Selective herbicides: can be directly applied on specific crops to control particular weeds without damaging the crop
Non-selective herbicides (NSH): eliminate all plants (if absorbed by green tissue). Some NSHs can now be used in the same way as selective herbicides on crops that are genetically modified in order to make them tolerant to specific herbicides. Growers also use non-selective herbicides when preparing fields for new plantings, thus avoiding the need to plough the land.
The major producers of herbicides are Syngenta, Bayer, Dow and DuPont, BASF, and Monsanto. Some of global leading herbicides products include Glyphosate, Flumioxazin, Clethodim, Imazethapyr, Paraquat, Chlorimuron, Diclosulam, Fomesafen, 2,4-D, Haloxyfop.
