Fungicides are chemical formulations used to manage fungal diseases in plants. These can be selective and non-selective based on their targets of activity. Fungicides are available in various formulations that incorporate individual or a blend of active ingredients for specific or broad spectrum activity.
Increasing demand for fungicides in key applications such as fruits & vegetable crops and non-crop applications in turf grass, ornamental plants, etc., is projected to fuel the global fungicide market. Swift growth in global population, especially in developing countries, is anticipated to increase food security concerns. Furthermore, limited availability of arable land raises the need for use of yield enhancing agricultural inputs (including fungicides). This is estimated to drive demand for fungicides across the globe. Initiatives to educate and increase awareness among farmers regarding benefits and correct usage of fungicides are projected to create growth opportunities for future growth of the fungicide market. However, rising incidences of resistance to fungicides and development of genetically modified crops that are resistant to fungal diseases are likely to hamper market growth during the forecast period. Mancozeb fungicide product segment is estimated to be the largest as well as the fastest growing fungicides product. Mancozeb is relatively low priced, effective, non-selective. Additionally, mancozeb has registered least number of incidences of resistance compared to other non-selective fungicide active ingredients available in the market.
