Region : Global | Report ID: FBI103195 | Status : Ongoing



Organophosphate insecticides are widely used in agriculture sector, residential and commercial areas. The increasing applications of organophosphate insecticides as they are least expensive than other alternatives is predicted to drive the global market of organophosphate insecticides. Furthermore, increasing crop losses owing to insect attacks and decreasing per capita arable land are predicted to leverage the sale of insecticides, especially organophosphate insecticides due to their low price.

The prominent players operating in the market are embarking on the new product launch and mergers and acquisitions activities to increase their footprint in the global market of organophosphate insecticides. Organophosphate insecticides are the ester forms of phosphoric acid which are generally considered as sage for agriculture use because of their fast degradation rates.

Organophosphate insecticides are extensively used for pest control in homes, commercials areas and agriculture. They are usually used on insects such as ants, termites, spiders, and many others because organophosphate insecticides can break down faster and have relatively shorter lifetime in the environment. For instance, chloropyriphos is used on agricultural food and feed crops, and to control public health pests such as mosquitoes and fire ants. Furthermore, the increasing population and disposable incomes in developed as well developing regions are expected to boost the demand for food.  For instance, According to Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nation (FAO) cereal demand is expected to increase around 3 billion metric ton by 2050, up from today’s almost 2.1 billion metric ton. Therefore, the demand for organophosphate insecticides is predicted to remain high among growers to fulfill the increasing demand for food and to avoid food spoilage caused due to insects. Besides, advancement in agricultural practices & techniques, rising global food commodities exports and increasing incidences of crop losses due to insect infestation are expected to drive the global market of organophosphate insecticides.
