Global Pesticides Emulsifying Agents Market: Synopsis
The active ingredients used in pesticides are not suitable for utility in their raw unformulated state. Pesticide manufacturers mix in additives such as pesticide emulsifying agents to formulate an utilizable final product. Pesticides emulsifying agents are added to concentrated pesticide formulations to facilitate emulsification with water. When emulsifiable concentrate formulations are applied on plant parts, the solvent and the emulsifying agents evaporate quickly along with water, leaving behind a deposit of toxicants. Some commonly employed emulsifying agents in pesticide formulations are alkaline soaps, sulfates of some long-chain alcohols, organic amines and other materials including carbohydrates, gums, proteins, lipids and alginates.
The addition of pesticide emulsifying agents to the formulations serves certain specific purposes, which include; dilution of water insoluble chemicals with water can be made possible; reduction of the surface tension of the spray to allow spreading and wetting of the treated surface; improve potency and efficiency through better contact with the insect cuticle. The choice of proper pesticide emulsifying agent is a critical decision to achieve optimum droplet size of the emulsified formulation as it is greatly affected by the kind as well as the amount of emulsifier added. The application of these pesticide emulsifying agents has to be optimized because excessive usage of chemicals harms the soil ecosystem. Additionally, the chemical structure of pesticide emulsifying agents influences the stability and performance of the emulsified formulations
Global Pesticides Emulsifying Agents Market: Trends and Prospects
These pesticide emulsifying agents have certain disadvantages such as phytotoxicity, which causes damages to the plant. These agents can be corrosive and cause deterioration of rubber and plastic hoses, pump parts, gaskets and other surfaces. These formulations are flammable and hazardous near heat. Pesticide emulsifying agents are toxic and can be easily absorbed through human or animal skin alike
Pesticide emulsifying agents market is primarily driven by rising demand for agricultural products especially food. Demand growth is expected to be driven by the growth of population across the world and rising demand for pest free yield. However, regulatory pressure against environmentally harmful chemicals might hamper market growth. Market players are shifting their focus to using water soluble chemicals and biobased materials in the pesticide formulations due to harmful effects of the conventional pesticide formulations owing to excessive use.
Global Pesticides Emulsifying Agents Market: Regional Analysis
In terms of geography, Asia Pacific is the largest consumer as well as producer of pesticide emulsifying agents riding on high sales of agricultural products to its large population base. Major agricultural economies including China, India, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand among others are the major consumers of agricultural chemicals. Two of the most populated countries, China and India are situated in Asia. Both these countries are growing rapidly and witnessing rising disposable income and purchase power parity of the general population. This in turn is expected to drive demand for agricultural products especially food. Major market players have established their production facilities in Asia owing to the availability of cheap labor and land and comparatively lenient norms and regulations against chemicals. North America is another major consumer for pesticide emulsifying agents. Europe is expected to witness comparatively slower growth than other regions due to stringent regulatory norms against harmful agricultural chemicals and their tendency to use bio-based organic products that are safe for the ecosystem.
