Dimethoate Market Segment Analysis – By Crop Type

Agricultural crops segment dominates the dimethoate market with a share of more than 55% in 2019. According to the United Nations Organization (UNO), world population is projected to reach 8.5 billion in 2030, and to increase further to 9.7 billion in 2050. The growing population has increased the demand of cereals, oilseeds, and vegetables, which in turn boost the agriculture sector along with the use of dimethoates to protect crops, fruits and vegetables from insects to improve the per hectare production and fulfill the ever-growing demand for food. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development has forecasted that global cereal production is projected to expand by 13% by 2027, subsequently augmenting the growth of dimethoate market. Also, according to Trade Map, value of total cereals imported worldwide increased from $ 110.16Mn in 2017 to $ 119.13 Mn in 2018.

Dimethoate Market Segment Analysis – By Application

Insecticides segment holds the largest share of more than 40% in the dimethoate market in 2019. The insects damage the crops by feeding over the leaves, stems, fruits, and roots of the plants. This causes injury to the plant part and promotes the viral, fungal, and bacterial infections resulting in the plant death. Accelerating use of dimethoate for eradication of insects such as grasshoppers, caterpillars, beetles is driving the growth of the market. Dimethoate acts as a cholinesterase inhibitor that block the normal breakdown of acetylcholine, the main neurotransmitter that functions in both the peripheral nervous system and the central nervous system. Acetylcholine can then build up, causing a “jam” in the nervous system and lead to death of insects.

Dimethoate Market Segment Analysis – By End-Use Industry

Based on the end-use, the foliar segment holds the largest share of 30% in the dimethoate market in 2019. Foliar feeding is an effective technique of applying pesticides directly onto the crops. Direct contact of pesticide with pests and insects results in faster application of dimethoate. Dimethoate affects the central nervous system of pests. Destruction of the nervous system kill the insects and results in better crop productivity. Moreover, other mode of application such as soil treatment and post-harvest takes sufficient time in eliminating pests and thus, less preferred as compared to foliar application.

Dimethoate Market Segment Analysis – Geography

Among the regions, the Asia Pacific is projected to witness the highest CAGR of around 7% in the global market during the forecast period. Rapid industrialization and urbanization in emerging economic nations like China, India, and Malaysia has decreased the farming land further proliferating the use of dimethoate for pest elimination and high agricultural output. According to China’s Ministry of Natural Resources country’s arable land declined by 60,900 hectares and fell to 134.86 million hectares in 2017. Furthermore, increase in commercial farming coupled with rapid population growth has fueled the growth of the dimethoate market. According to the Indian governmental report, total consumption of the food and beverage segment domestically is expected to reach $1.142 Tn by 2025, subsequently aiding the demand for dimethoate.

Dimethoate Market Drivers

FDI and government initiatives to boosts agriculture sector

Government’s initiatives to increase the crop yield to mitigate the growing food demand drive the growth of the dimethoate market. For instance, in 2016, according to China’s Ministry of Agriculture, over 1,300 Chinese enterprises had overseas investments in agriculture, forestry, and fisheries valued at $26 billion. Also, in 2018, FDI in the U.S. agribusiness industry totaled more than $14 billion. Thus, owing to the various initiatives by the government and huge investments, agricultural production is increasing in the various regions. Thus, with the increasing crop production the demand for dimethoate is also increasing for elimination of mites and insects, which acts as a driver for the growth of the dimethoate market.

High efficacy of dimethoate pesticides or insecticides

Insects or pests are getting adapted to the conventional insecticides hence the demand for organic compounds such as dimethoate is growing. The dimethoate is effective against wide range of pest and destroy nervous system and suppresses metabolic growth of an organism. Due to their high efficacy they find applications in various agrochemical products such as insecticides, fungicides, weedicides, and acaricides. Thus, the resistance of insects towards various pesticides has made farmers to opt for Dimethoate as an option to fight against the crop eating insects which in turn boosts the market growth.
