This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Agricultural Fumigants Market is accounted for $2.38 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $3.42 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period. Fumigants are utilized for crop protection. Agricultural fumigants are injected into the soil to free them of soil insects, weeds, nematodes, and rodents. Agricultural fumigants are utilized to kill pests and increase agriculture productivity. Soil fumigants are spread or sprayed over the area to be cultivated for working into the soil to control weeds, nematodes, and other disease-causing fungi.

The fumigants market is likely to grow owing to driving factors such as high usage of the product in cereal production and storage coupled with an increased focus on reducing post-harvest losses. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), global meat production will increase to 455 million tons. In 2016, 36 percent of cereals produced globally were fed to animals. Substantially more cereal production will be needed to feed livestock in 2050. In warehouses, pests damage most crops, and the use of fumigants decrease the loss of agricultural products.

Market Dynamics:

Driver:

Rising focus on the reduction of post-harvest losses

Decrease of post-harvest food losses is a significant part of ensuring food security. Post-harvest losses emerge from newly harvested agricultural produce changing handling. Post-harvest losses can be avoided by undertaking fumigation for pest prevention. Post-harvest green mold and blue mold, caused by Penicillium digitatum and Penicillium italicum, respectively, are effectively controlled by ammonia gas fumigation of lemons and oranges. Accordingly, fumigation innovation assists in preventing post-harvest losses to maintain the quality of agricultural commodities. Moreover, fumigation helps in the thorough cleaning of storage areas, silos, or warehouses. This is utilized as a further preventative method in pre-harvest cleaning for the storage of grains.

Restraint:

Increasing side-effects on crops

Increasing side-effects on crops that are harmful to crops are attributable to their application. It reduces the market growth of the fumigant market. Some chemicals are highly effective, and banned these fumigants to utilizing on crops because its toxicity level is high. 

Opportunity:

New product launches

Increasing tolerance of pests toward methyl bromide fumigation, followed by its phasing out, has resulted in the adoption of suitable alternatives for methyl bromide for the management of stored products and to quarantine pests. The choices for methyl bromide fumigant include phosphine, sulfuryl fluoride, carbonyl sulfide, ethyl formate, hydrogen cyanide, carbon disulfide, methyl iodide, and methyl isothiocyanate. Thus, manufacturers are focusing on new product developments by investing in R&D activities for active ingredients that can inhibit resistant insects by utilizing these alternative fumigants.

Threat:

High costs

Soil fumigation with unstable chemical content is managed by different governing bodies. It is important to find the appropriate fumigant for the varied application base. Further, high labor costs are engaged with applying these fumigants with handheld or manual injectors. The main costs associated with fumigation are the costs needed for equipment and labor. Only pest control experts that are certified fumigators are allowed to provide fumigation treatment. Fumigation is a highly technical procedure that requires skilled operators using special materials and gas measurement devices. 

The liquid segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The liquid segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth as they are usually sprayed over the desired land area utilizing typical sprayers. The disbursement volume of solvent is at the discretion of the applicator. This form of fumigation is usually considered the safest when it is performed in either enclosed chambers or completely open outdoor areas.

The 1,3-Dichloropropene segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The 1,3-Dichloropropene segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period as 1,3-dichloropropene is a fundamental fumigant consisting of lower vapor pressure and kH as well as higher degradation rates and a high level of sorption coefficients as compared to bromomethane. A higher sorption coefficient eventually enables the compound to be more persistent in soil.

Region with highest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period because of the conducive climatic conditions, strict government regulations regarding food safety and the high outbreak of pests and insects witnessed in warehouses and other storage places.  To prevent post-harvest losses, farmers opt for agricultural fumigants to obtain profits.    

Region with highest CAGR:

North America is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the increasing availability and awareness regarding the usage of these products as a crop protection technique, high consumption of pesticides, large land areas coming under crop cultivation, government initiatives to increase grain production, so farmers are trying to use fumigants for the safety of warehouse and storage places and killing and removing pests and insects.
