Spirodiclofen is an acaricide and insecticide that is used in a broad spectrum of fruit crops and certain fruiting vegetable crops such as tomato. It controls harmful mites throughout the growth stage of the plant. Spirodiclofen is considered non-toxic as compared to other acaricides and insecticides. It is effective in eradicating significant insect pest species. Bayer CropScience has branded the product under the name of “Envidor.” The company launched the product as the first acaricide that can be used in a comprehensive pest management strategy along with its other insecticide products such as thiacloprid, which is branded as Calypso.
Demand for spirodiclofen has been increasing, as the acaricide is compliant with the modern requirements and principles of integrated pest management (IPM). Spirodiclofen is widely used to exterminate mites that colonize plants by settling on the lower leaf surface during the spring season. These mites pierce epidermal cells individually and suck out the sap. This destroys the cells through desiccation. Acaricide controls certain significant mite species; some of these measure just 0.1 millimeters to 0.7 millimeters. These species usually attack grapevine, pome fruits, stone fruits, and citrus fruits. Spirodiclofen is also used to exterminate mites that are actively found in ornamental plants, nut trees and strawberries.
Spirodiclofen is widely used in various fruit crops such as apple, almond, peach, pear, grapes, avocado, lemon and lime; of these, almond accounts for the largest consumption of the chemical. Spirodiclofen helps keep crops disease free and healthy, thereby enhancing the productivity of farmers. The crop industry is focused on protecting crops from various diseases and pests. Demand for mite-extermination chemicals such as spirodiclofen is likely to rise over the next few years, led by rising production of fruits such as tangerines, almonds and walnuts. Spirodiclofen is used in other crops such as fruiting vegetables and ornamental plants to exterminate harmful pests that hamper plant growth. Cultivation of ornamental plants is known as floriculture. It is widely practiced for the purpose of decoration in landscape design projects, and as houseplants for cut flowers and specimen display. Furthermore, rising production of major crops such as tomato (to meet the increasing demand for food) is anticipated to boost demand for spirodiclofen during the forecast period.
Demand for spirodiclofen was the highest in Europe, accounting for over 25% of the market share in 2013. Asia Pacific was the second-largest market for spirodiclofen in the same year. Spirodiclofen is used in various fruit crops in North America. Almond accounts for more than a half of the spirodiclofen consumption in states such as California. The state alone produces more than 80% of almonds globally. Other crops such as walnuts and tangerines also use spirodiclofen in significant quantities. Demand for crops pertaining to citrus fruits, almonds and other food crops is increasing. Spirodiclofen is anticipated to play a key role in future management strategies for this crop in Europe. It has also succeeded in combating certain scale species such as Lepidosaphes ulmi and Quadraspidiotus perniciosus. Spirodiclofen has a long duration of action and is largely unaffected by temperature in Europe. Other regions such as Latin America also account for the major production of citrus fruits. This results in significant usage of acaricides in the Latin American region. Additionally, Brazil, an emerging economy, was one of the few countries in the world where spirodiclofen was first launched by Bayer CropScience under the brand of “Envidor”. The country is likely to be one of the major markets for spirodiclofen in the next few years, led by significant production of citrus fruits such as tangerines, oranges, and grapefruits.
Companies such as Bayer CropScience and Hangzhou Tianlong Biotechnology Co. Ltd. are the key players operating in the spirodiclofen market.
