Largest Market


Highest Growing Market

Asia Pacific

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Copper Fungicide Market is accounted for $523.87 million in 2023 and is expected to reach $903.66 million by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period. Copper Fungicide is a kind of pesticide created particularly to treat and prevent fungal infections in plants. Copper compounds, often in the form of copper sulphate or copper Oxychloride, are the active component in copper fungicides. It is frequently used in horticulture, agriculture, and gardening to guard against several fungal diseases on crops, trees, and decorative plants. Copper fungicides have a long-lasting residual effect. Once sprayed, the copper ions continue to function on the plant's surface, protecting it from fungus diseases. This is especially helpful in places or times of year that have high humidity or a lot of rain since it slows the growth and spread of infections in those environments.

According to the Journal of Agricultural & Food Chemistry, copper concentration in Australian vineyard soil was measured to assess the magnitude and extent of its accumulation in the soil. The sample of soil was collected from 98 vineyards across 10 grape-cultivating regions in the country. Approximately 96% of the surveyed vineyards had elevated concentrations of copper fungicides.

Market Dynamics:


Growing demand for organic farming

Over the past decade, organic farming has become a widespread practice due to the rising demand for organic food products and public awareness of the detrimental effects of chemicals on the environment and human health. As organic farming becomes more popular, so does the need for organic inputs. In order to reduce crop losses and leave little to no chemical residue, copper fungicides are frequently used in organic farming and are allowed in certain amounts. The rising use of organic farming is therefore expected to nurture demand for copper fungicides during the course of the projected period.


Risk of side effects

The copper fungicide is highly combustible. It also causes skin sensitization and is irritant to the eyes and skin. Inhalation could irritate mucous membranes. Metal fume fever, aching muscles, a dry mouth, and headache are all potential side effects of exposure to copper fumes. They are quite hazardous to both humans and animals. Copper-impregnated matting and copper fungicides have also been reported to have antifeedant, repellent, irritant, growth inhibition, or lethal effects which are further hampering the market growth.


Rise in fungal outbreaks

The increased knowledge of environmentally friendly crop protection techniques and the quick uptake of sustainable farming practices can be attributed for the rising demand for copper oxychloride in agriculture for bactericidal and fungicidal treatments. Numerous advantages of copper oxychloride include broad-spectrum defense against fungal outbreaks due to a reduced chance of resistance development. It is also thought to be an effective fungicide for a variety of decorative flowers, shrubs, fruits, and vegetables. These benefits of copper oxychloride segment are fuelling the market growth.


Availability of alternatives

To compete with copper fungicides, a variety of cultural approaches, biological treatments, and genetic resistance strategies have been developed in recent years to stop disease outbreaks among crops. Instead, it reduces the manufacturers' appeal and their potential for profit. The availability of several alternative disease control techniques is anticipated to be a significant barrier to the expansion of the market for copper fungicides.

Covid-19 Impact

The manufacturing and accessibility of copper fungicides were negatively impacted by the covid epidemic. The dispute had a significant impact on the market. The copper fungicide supply chain was hampered by the worldwide shutdown. Ukraine, one of the world's largest copper producers, encountered difficulties with its mining and production capacities. There was a dearth of copper fungicides on the market as a result of the conflict's shutdown of copper mines and interruption of shipping routes. As a result, it was difficult for farmers and the agricultural sector to obtain an adequate supply of the fungicides they needed to protect their crops against fungal diseases.

The copper hydroxide segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The copper hydroxide segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth. To cure diseases on trees and crops, copper hydroxide fungicide is a carefully prepared product. It guards against diseases that ruin crops, including blight, black spot, downy mildew, and others. When copper ions come into touch with pathogens that have not yet attacked the plant, they kill by denaturing the proteins and enzymes in those cells. They are non-selective and have no post-infection activity, which is why they cause phytotoxicity when they infect plants. It is a powerful bactericide and fungicide that suppresses or controls bacterial and fungal infections.

The water-dispersible granules (WG) segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The water-dispersible granules (WG) segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period. Water dispersible granules are solid, non-dusty granular formulations that quickly dissolve or disperse when mixed with water in a spray tank to create a suspension of small particles. They give a target organism a way to receive potent active chemicals. They make it possible to create extremely concentrated formulations that are wettable and quickly break down when they come into contact with water. Because they produce less dust than wettable powder (WP) formulations, WDGs are a desirable option. The segment is gaining popularity as a result of its simple package disposal, minimal flammability, and absence of dust.

Region with largest share:

Europe is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. Raw resources are easily and sufficiently available in this area. Other copper-based compounds produced in this area include cuprous oxide, copper oxychloride, and cupric hydroxide. One of the top 10 agricultural producers in the world is Germany. Sugar, wheat, grapes, vegetables, and fruits are some of the most significant crops that need pesticides because of their higher yields. Additionally, increasing German cereal crop output is promoting market expansion in this region.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period. India, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka are three APAC nations where agriculture is a major industry. The region's demand of copper fungicides is anticipated to increase due to these nations' thriving agricultural sectors. Furthermore, due to their prowess in producing crops like rice, wheat, and cotton, China and India have become major exporters of these commodities worldwide. In the upcoming years, it is anticipated that pesticide use in the Asia Pacific area would expand significantly, resulting in the expansion of the regional market.
