Untapped Potential of APAC Highlights Bright Future of Agricultural Disinfectant Market
With the soaring demand for meat and meat products around the world, maintaining the health, hygiene, and well-being of high-producing animals such as cattle and poultry has gained priority. Cleaning and disinfecting livestock farms has become imperative to prevent the outbreak of diseases. “A focus on routine cleanliness and the use of effective agricultural disinfectants has thus emerged as a key factor driving this market,” the lead analyst says.
Considering the fact that Asia Pacific possesses immense untapped potential as far as the agricultural disinfectant market goes, players in this market have been recently focusing in countries such as India and China. “These nations offer business expansion opportunities, keeping in mind a rise in the disposable income of the consumers and an increase in the demand for meat products,” the author of the report states.
On the down side, low awareness among farmers in several underdeveloped nations poses a major challenge for the global agricultural disinfectants market. “Farmers often lack sufficient knowledge regarding the proper usage of disinfectants and this results in either lower adoption rates or high rate of wastage,” the analyst points out.
Moreover, the possible harmful effects of agricultural disinfectants has also led to manufacturing companies refraining from taking up new projects. This is likely to hamper the overall market.
