Rising Awareness Regarding False Claims of Fumigation Products to Impede Sales

The very nature of fumigants is volatile and toxic. Despite this, several companies in the fumigation products market claim to have produced fumigation products that are poisonous to only insects and not humans. Such false claims lead to the reckless use of fumigants, which affects the health of pest control service providers. Incidences related to the ill-effects of these products on human health have been coming to light, which has been limiting the true sales potential of the fumigation products market.

Also, regular exposure to fumigants for a prolonged period of time could cause acute and chronic disorders in humans, which has instigated the shift of pest control service providers towards natural and less hazardous disinfectants such as fungicides, insecticides, and herbicides. Manufacturers of these harmless products further attract sales by offering cost benefits to end users, which is projected to upkeep a medium-to-high level of threat of substitutes in the fumigation products market.

North America Strengthens its Hold on the Fumigation Products Market

In 2019, North America is projected to account for sales of ~264 thousand tons worth of fumigation products, and likely to record a volume CAGR of ~3% during 2019-2027. A significant part of this growth is attributable to the presence of stringent government regulations in the U.S. and Canada, which ensures that only quality products penetrate the fumigation products market. In addition, a significant number of warehouses in the region, used for the storage of agricultural products, are likely to upkeep the demand for fumigants during the forecast period.

It is worth noting that, the growth of the Asia Pacific fumigation products market is evincing an exponential trajectory, on account of the urban sprawl, which is generating demand for pest control from warehouses as well as residential areas.

Since the technology used for the development of fumigation products is relatively expensive, North America is home to a substantial number of fumigation product market players, while Asia Pacific is seen as a cash cow for investment. Given the number of consolidation opportunities, the overall degree of competition in the fumigation products market will be high during the forecast period.

Fumigation Products: Description

  • Fumigation is a method of pest control. The fumigation process involves the elimination of pests by using fumes of certain chemicals. Fumigation can help eliminate nematodes, bacteria, fungi, weeds, and other hard-to-remove pests. It is one of the most reliable methods of pest control for grain storage and cargo. Fumigation products are highly toxic chemicals that can eliminate pests during any part of their lifecycle stages, from eggs to full-grown adults.
  • Chemicals that are used for fumigation include magnesium phosphide, aluminum phosphide, sulfuryl fluoride, and carbon dioxide (CO2). These fumigation chemicals can be used in a wide variety of applications, from domestic fumigation to fumigation for large cargo transit and grain storage.

 What are the Key Growth Drivers of the Global Fumigation Products Market?

  • The demand for fumigation products primarily comes from agricultural produce and grain storage applications. Increase in the infestation of insects in stored food grains such as lesser grain borer (rhyzopertha dominica), granary weevil (sitophilus granaries), rice weevil (sitophilus oryzae), and angoumois grain moth (sitotroga cerealella) poses a serious threat to warehouse operators. Increase in the demand for high quality grains with consistent appearance is anticipated to drive the demand for fumigation products for food grain storage/warehouses.
  • Globalization is driving the worldwide trade of agricultural produce. Containers that carry food items and storage units at ports need frequent pest control in order to prevent loss that could be caused by insects.
  • Increase in the urban population across the globe is driving the demand for residential construction, especially in developing countries such as China, India, Brazil, and Mexico. Rise in the number of residential spaces and transformation of rural areas into urban areas are projected to pose a threat of infestation in newly constructed residential spaces in the near future, thus fueling the demand for fumigation products from the residential sector.

What are the Major Challenges for the Global Fumigation Products Market?

  • Fumigation products are highly toxic chemicals. These generate poisonous gases when exposed to air and moisture, which can be dangerous not only for the technician applying fumigation products but also for the people around the treated area. Thus, the application of fumigation products requires the utmost care, and must be carried out by certified professionals only.
  • Developing countries such as South Africa, India, and Mexico lack the skilled professionals required for fumigation. This restricts the growth of the global fumigation products market in these countries.

Lucrative Opportunities for Global Fumigation Products Market

  • International trade of agricultural produce is expected to play an important role in contributing toward food security in several supply-deficit countries. Countries that are experiencing extreme climate events rely on international trade in order to meet their domestic demand, resulting in increased need for storage. Stored agricultural produce is always prone to infestation. If not treated properly, this infestation can damage stored goods, which can result in heavy losses to storage companies.
  • The global production of food grains has increased, and international trade has risen significantly in the past few years with the emergence of new exporters and importers of agricultural produce. Fluctuation in the production of agricultural products due to seasonal changes in developing economies such as Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, and Russia has been a major development in the global agriculture sector.
  • Fumigation is the most popular method of pest control employed in agricultural produce storage facilities across the world. The global demand to store surplus agricultural produce for future trade is anticipated to lead to the high demand for fumigation products across the globe during the forecast period.

North America to Dominate Global Fumigation Products Market

  • North America is the leading consumer of fumigation products. The U.S. is the prominent producer and consumer of fumigation products in the region. North America is expected to lead the global fumigation products market in terms of volume and value during the forecast period.
  • Rapid urbanization and rise in demand for fumigation products from the warehouse/storage industry are boosting the demand for fumigation products in North America.
  • North America is also one of the major producers of food grains. Furthermore, the demand for fumigation from the residential sector has been expanding significantly in the region. Increase in the demand for fumigation products for use in these applications is estimated to drive the fumigation products market in the region during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific to Offer Growth Opportunities

  • Asia Pacific is another prominent region in terms of consumption of fumigation products. China is a highly lucrative market for fumigation products in Asia Pacific.
  • Increase in the number of nuclear families and rise in the procurement of houses due to rapid urbanization are projected to fuel the expansion of urban areas with several residential building in developing countries such as China, India, and other South Asian countries. This is expected to drive the fumigation products market in Asia Pacific.
  • Growth in the demand for fumigation products for use in applications such as warehouse/storage, agriculture, and residential sectors is expected to augment the growth of the fumigation products market in Asia Pacific during the forecast period.
