Piperonyl Butoxide Market: Snapshot

The global market for piperonyl butoxide (PBO) is rather consolidated and is primarily driven by the ever increasing demand for food. The rapid increase in the global population has raised food security concerns and several underdeveloped and developing countries still lack proper infrastructure for the storage and distribution of food grains. A significant rise in yield is possible through the usage of crop protection chemicals such as insecticides. This has resulted in the high demand for piperonyl butoxide.

Carbamate to Witness Significant Rise in Demand in the Agriculture Sector

The key applications of piperonyl butoxide include pyrethrin, pyrethroid, carbamate, rotenone, permethrin, bioallethrin, deltamethrin, and bioresmethrin. Carbamate constituted the leading share in the piperonyl butoxide market in 2015, followed by pyrethroid. These two segments cumulatively accounted for a share of over 75% in the PBO market in 2015.

Carbamate, pyrethrin, and pyrethroid are part of a relatively newer generation of insecticides. Pyrethrin and pyrethroid insecticides are currently preferred by farmers for their lower and toxicity.

Carbamate is the key revenue generator as well as the key consumer of piperonyl butoxide. Derived from carbamic acid, carbamate is used to control or kill insects and finds application in the agriculture sector as well as in homes. The growing usage of insecticides for crop protection and the rising demand for food are likely to boost the demand for carbamate in the coming years.
