Fastest Growing Market


According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Pyrethroids Market is accounted for $3694.82 million in 2021 and is expected to reach $5894.37 million by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period. Pyrethroid is an insecticide derived by synthetic modification of naturally occurring pyrethrin which is extracted from chrysanthemum flowers. They have similar properties to pyrethrin but are not sensitive to sunlight. Pyrethroids are used in the form of wet powders, granules, emulsifying concentrates and ultra-low volume (ULV) sprays. They have low toxicity to mammals or birds and are administered in small quantities to kill bugs and flying insects. They are primarily used to kill insects such as mosquitos, flies, ants, moths and farm pests. They are widely used as household insecticides and have a short shelf life with biodegradable properties.

Market Dynamics:


Rapidly rising population leading to increase the food demand

The population is exponentially rising every day and people contribute to universal food demand. As a big strategy to gratify global food demand, farmers are therefore aiming for crop protection. The use of insecticides on crops is an established technology and urbanized nations have seen huge demand for pyrethroids to augment the global food supply and stop the crops from being deteriorated. The UN population division predicts that by 2050 inhabitants growth will be the largest in Asia, which represents 60% or more of the world's population (particularly in China, India, and South-East Asia). Momentous quantities of crop protection chemicals are anticipated to be necessary to enlarge food production for the growing population in this region.


Detrimental effects of using pyrethroids

Bifenthrin falls on the skin and may cause tingling, burning scratching, or deadness at the contact spot. Bifenthrin inhalation can annoy throat, nose, and lungs. People consuming considerable quantities of bifenthrin have reported almost instant nausea, sore throat, stomach pain and vomiting. In a single frame, exposed pets can also experience diarrhea or vomiting, ear twitching, decreased activity, flicking of paws and augmented drooling. Certain symptoms can comprise hyperactivity accompanied by in harmonization with diarrhea, fatigue and dilated pupils. Some veterinarians reported added signs like bobbing heads, chewing, partial paralysis, and tremors as well. Therefore, diverse harmful effects of pyrethroids will further create hurdles for the pyrethroids market.


Development of new synthetic pyrethroids

The novel synthetic pyrethroids are greater to the natural pyrethrins in both slay and reduced effects in mosquito coils and in aerosols. Resmethrin, tetramethrin, prothrin, and proparthrin are typical new pyrethroids that have made a great contribution to progress in this field. The Synthetic pyrethroids are artificial disposables and variants of the novel pyrethrin and have a compilation of a numeral of insecticides. As they are equivalents of pyrethrins, their development has involved stern chemical alterations that create them enormously toxic and less biodegradable in the environment. Owing to growing population, people have become very aware of healthy food, and their leaning towards changed lifestyle has led to augmented application of synthetic pyrethroids which has led to the extensive use of synthetic pyrethroids in the world. These are expected to serve as an opportunity for the pyrethroids market.


Pandemic had a negative impact on global pyrethroid Market

While the global trade came to halt during the lockdowns imposed to control the spread of novel coronavirus, the food and agriculture industry has been impacted by severe freight challenges. Asia, Europe and North America, which are among the most affected regions due to covid 19, are also the most dominant markets for pyrethroid based insecticides. Most of the agricultural and agrochemical products categories including insecticides witnessed decline in sales volume due to lack of demand and supply chain disruptions.

The cereals & grains segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The cereals & grains segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, due to food safety and their wide variety of uses. The cereals and grain production are an essential part of the food chain. Through direct human consumption and also through meat production, cereal crops provide essential nutrients and energy in the daily human diet, since they comprise a major feed for livestock. Cereal grains, including synthetic pyrethroids and insect growth regulators, are treated with degradable pesticides to avoid insect infestation during storage period.

The bifenthrin segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The bifenthrin segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to the essential elements for crop growth and insect resistance. The bifenthrin is used against a number of agricultural pests around the world. It has a very low vapor pressure, low water solubility and good hydrolysis and photolysis stability because of these qualities, bifenthrin is potentially a good insecticide for the use of mosquito netting. In United States, bifenthrin pyrethroids are not considered as a restricted chemical and are sold for household use in low concentration. It is commonly used on a wide scale against invasive red fire ants and is also effective against aphids, worms, other ants, gnats, moths, beetles, termites, and many more insects.

Region with highest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to growing population, rising demand for insect repellent products, increasing disposable income levels, and food security, and growing demand for food especially from countries such as China and India. The main consumers of pyrethroid insecticides for use in a range of formulations of insecticides are emerging economies, including China, India, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. Due to the availability of cheap labor and land, and comparatively mild standards and regulations against chemicals, major market players have established their manufacturing facilities of pyrethroid.

Region with highest CAGR:

Europe is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, due to the strong government control over potentially hazardous chemicals and rising necessity for high crop yield in the agricultural industry. Europe is the largest market for pyrethroids. The ban on three pesticide clothianidin, imidacloprid, and thiamethoxam belonging to neonicotinoids category from December 2013, followed by a petition in March 2017 to ban all bee harming neonicotinoids in the EU member states is expected to show a positive impact on pyrethroids market in the region. Neonicotinoids were gradually replacing pyrethroids due to their low toxicity and less impact on the environment.

Key players in the market

Some of the key players profiled in the Pyrethroids Market include Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd., Merck KGaA, Syngenta AG, Bayer CropScience AG, BASF SE, FMC Corporation, ADAMA Agricultural Solutions, Nufarm Limited, United Phosphorus Limited (UPL), The Dow Chemical Company, Cargill, Incorporated, Heranba Industries Limited, Arysta Lifescience, Sigma-Aldrich, SinoHarvest Corporation, V.K.A Polymers Pvt. Ltd., Corteva Agriscience, and Monsanto.

The R&D facility will focus on biologicals, digitalization and big data for agriculture. Syngenta is increasing its focus on biologicals, or natural solutions to fight pests and diseases, recently acquiring an Italian firm specialising in the area.

In April 2015, FMC corporation acquired Denmark based Cheminova A/S for purchase price of approximately US$1.8 billion, which includes assumption of debt.
