Miticides Market Segment Analysis – Form
Based on the form type, the liquid segment held the largest share of more than 60% in the miticides market in 2019. Increasing awareness among the farmers to protect their crops from mites is driving the growth of liquid miticides. Liquid miticides have high efficiency due to smaller particle sizes and are easily absorbed by plants. They do not cause dust formation on spraying, thus lower the risk of getting inside the human body through the nose and mouth. Ease of application and higher effectiveness of liquid miticides in destroying the ticks is augmenting the growth of the market.
Miticides Market Segment Analysis – Crop Type
Cereals & grains segment held the largest share of more than 35% in the miticides market in 2019. Miticides are ovicidal, as it destroys mite’s eggs, and are extensively used to get rid of Acarus Siro, Tyrophagus putrescentiae, Lepidoglyphus destructor, and Glycyphagus domesticus in cereals and grains. According to the United Nations Organization (UNO), the world population is projected to reach 8.5 billion by 2030, subsequently raising the demand for food and cereals. An increase in demand for food has impelled the farmer to use miticides for better agricultural output. Furthermore, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OCED), has forecasted that global cereal production will increase by 367 Mt and reach 3 053 Mt by 2028 further escalating the use of miticides during the forecast period.
Miticides Market Segment Analysis – Application
Based on the application, the foliar spray segment held the largest share of more than 30% in the miticides market in 2019. Foliar feeding is an effective technique of applying miticides directly on the crop that is affected by mites and ticks. Mites are considered as one of the most difficult pests to control because they grow rapidly and are difficult to detect. Once miticides are sprayed onto the crops, they suppress the growth of the mites and destroys their immune system. Direct contact of miticides with mites or pests destroys them faster and results in healthy crops as compared to seed or soil treatment.
Miticides Market Segment Analysis – Geography
Asia Pacific dominated the miticides market with a share of more than 40% in 2019 followed by North America and Europe. The increase in agricultural practices and the necessity of high-quality fruit & vegetable produce have boosted the demand for miticides for the elimination of mites and pests. China’s Ministry of Natural Resources estimated that country’s arable land declined by 60,900 hectares and fell to 134.86 million hectares in 2017. Moreover, population growth in countries like India and China has increased food demand. According to the Indian governmental report, food processing Industry in India contributed approx. $3.92 Bn to India’s exports in the year 2017-18 and total consumption of the food and beverage segment domestically is expected to reach $1.142 Tn by 2025, thereby increasing the demand for miticides for higher crop yield.
Miticides Market Drivers
Food security and higher efficiency of miticides in the elimination of mites
The rise in food security concerns and growing awareness among people to protect their crops from pests and mites has boosted the growth of the miticides market. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, in 2018, 88.9 percent of the U.S. households were food secure throughout the year. The remaining 11.1 percent of households were food insecure at least sometime during the year, including 4.3 percent (5.6 million households) that had very low food security. Also, over 2016 to 2018, 5.6% of the UK population were estimated to have experienced food insecurity based on the FAO’s globally set threshold for food insecurity. Thus, growing food demand has urged the farmers to use miticides for higher agricultural output. Moreover, the United Nations “Zero Hunger Vision by 2030” which aims to end hunger and double the agricultural productivity and incomes of small-scale food producers are likely to increase the demand for miticides.
Increasing government initiatives to boost the agriculture sector
The government of various countries is focusing and spending heavily in the field of agriculture as it is an effective way to promote agricultural productivity. 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. Additionally, in April 2020, the governments of Canada and Ontario invested up to $2.5 million for the expansion of the agri-food sector. Thus, owing to the various initiatives by the government, agricultural production is increasing in the various regions. Thus, with the increased crop production the demand for miticides is also increasing to increase the crop yield, which acts as a driver for the miticides market.
