Growing Food Insecurity Worldwide to Boost Market Prospects


Inequitable access to food and nutrition has intensified the issue of food insecurity around the globe in recent years. According to the World Bank (WB), 151 million children under 5 years of age are currently suffering from chronic malnutrition. Despite visible economic growth, the WB further highlights, the number of undernourished individuals has increased from 784 million in 2015 to 820 million in 2018. Moreover, the COVID-19 outbreak, as per findings by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), can potentially add over 80 million hungry people to the current numbers, in case of severe economic contractions in food-importing countries. These extreme, though probable, scenarios are expected to stoke the adoption of crop protection chemicals and integrated pest management techniques to ensure stable agricultural yield, which benefits the market growth.
