"Yield Higher Revenue with our Exclusive Insights "
The global agricultural adjuvants market size valued at USD 2.92 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 4.55 billion by the end of 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.77% in the forecast period.
Growing demand for crop protection chemicals is the key factor that is driving the global market. Increased awareness about the potential implications of aberrant usage of pesticides on the environment has received higher attention in the recent decade. This factor is fueling demand for agricultural adjuvants and thus boosting the global agricultural adjuvants market revenue. During the application of crop protection chemicals, the drift of spray drops (due to weather conditions, application technology, and physical & chemical properties of pesticide) has led to contamination of water bodies across various regions.

According to PAN Europe, 7% of the groundwater stations in European countries reported excessive levels for one or more pesticides. Therefore, PAN Europe works on the contamination of European freshwater systems by pesticides, giving particular emphasis on the effects of endocrine-disrupting pesticides on aquatic ecosystems.
Agricultural adjuvants industry is majorly self-regulated, and the formulations are considered as “trade secrets.” However, the majority of the adjuvant products are the same or vary by minor changes in components or the combination of products having different functionalities. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates adjuvant formulations, but it does not stringently regulate the manufacture and use of adjuvant products.
The adjuvants play a key role in controlling these variables to improve overall pesticide effectiveness. Some of the more commonly used adjuvants include drift retardants, wetter-spreaders, stickers, buffers, and foam retardants. Research studies revealed that agricultural adjuvants costs around US$ 0.75-1.0 per acre additionally along with herbicides and helps in improving the percent absorption spray by 50-85%. Lack of strict regulations and limited awareness among crop producers about the benefits of using spray adjuvants are some of the inhibiting factors for the agricultural adjuvants market growth.
"Insecticides to Emerge as Most Attractive Product Type due to Growing Demand in the Asia Pacific"
Several adjuvant products available at the marketplace are mainly intended to offer a resolution of spray-mix incompatibilities resulting from the combination of one or more agrochemicals. Activator adjuvants especially surfactants are the major category of adjuvants that account for the largest global agricultural adjuvants market share.
The Brazil market is projected to witness strong growth during the projected period between 2019 and 2026 due to the growing crop protection chemicals market along with the strong adoption trend of improved technologies in cultivation crops.

Adjuvants application is projected to continue to dominate with herbicides application
Among applications, herbicides segment accounts for the largest share as they are a major group of crop protection chemicals used in agriculture. Post-emergence herbicide effectiveness is significantly influenced by plant factors such as age, size, and growing conditions. Hence, adjuvants, specifically surfactants usage with the herbicide spray solution, generally improves the effectiveness of post-emergence herbicides. The benefits using surfactants with agrochemicals is projected to continue to support the growth of the surfactants market during the forecast period.
"North America and Europe dominate the agricultural adjuvants market"
North America followed by Europe are the two largest markets for agricultural adjuvants at present, and they are expected to account for a significant proportion of the global market in the forecast period as well. Stringent regulations on the usage of crop protection chemicals to protect the environment from hazardous effects are driving the agricultural adjuvants market in North America and Europe

The agricultural adjuvants market growth in South America and Asia Pacific is projected to witness strong growth due to growing crop protection chemicals market. In addition to this, the increasing awareness among the crop producers about the benefits of adjuvants with the spray chemicals is another factor further driving the global market in these two regions.
"Launch of new products having innovations is a key strategy for growth in the market"
Several companies in the agricultural adjuvants industry are involved in the discovery, development, and launch of agricultural adjuvant products. Companies such as Evonik, Clariant, BASF, Croda International, AkzoNobel, DowDuPont, and Solvay are dominating the agricultural adjuvants market trend.
According to EPA, adjuvants are chemicals added to a pesticide by users to improve the pesticide's efficiency. Adjuvants are added to a pesticide product (in-formulation) or pesticide spray mixture (tank-mix) to enhance the pesticide’s performance and/or the physical properties of the spray mixture. A spray of crop protection chemicals is majorly affected by various physical variables such as pesticide stability, solubility, compatibility, foaming, droplet size, suspension, surface tension, coverage, volatilization, penetration, and others.
