Herbicide Safeners: Introduction

  • Herbicide safeners are antidotes for herbicides. Herbicide safeners are chemical agents that increase the tolerance level in cereal plants from the impact of herbicides. Herbicide safeners provides several benefits such as agriculture weed control and decrease in impact of selective chemicals.
  • Herbicide safeners are chemicals that help protect crops from the possible damage caused due to the use of herbicide. It can effectively escalate the tolerance of cereal plants to herbicide application without impacting the weed control efficiency.

Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Herbicide Safeners Market

  • Emerging trend of post-farming application of herbicide safeners is anticipated to fuel the herbicide safeners market during the forecast period
  • The new registration herbicides ingredients favor the development of formulations with safeners. Additionally, development of safener combinations for biologically derived herbicides is driving the market.
  • Lack of awareness, low technical expertise, and less rate of adoption inhibit the market. Rise in concerns regarding the negative impact of pesticides on human health and the environment also hinder the market.
  • Growth in population and rise in disposable income of the people in developing regions such as Asia Pacific are boosting the demand for herbicides. However, hazards associated with synthetic herbicides lead to implementation of stringent regulations on the usage of herbicides. This is hampering the global market.

Herbicide Safeners: Type Segment

  • In terms of type, the global herbicide safeners market can be divided into benoxacor, furilazole, dichlormid, isoxadifen, and others
  • The benoxacor segment accounted for leading share of the market in 2020 due to high properties of killing the effect of herbicides, and having the antidotes for the herbicide active ingredient S-metolachlor
  • The furilazole segment is expected to expand at a steady pace owing of its usage as an analytical reference standard for the determination of the analyte in vegetables and fruit samples by solid-phase extraction

Herbicide Safeners: Application Stage Segment

  • Based on application stage, the herbicide safeners market can be bifurcated into post-emergence and pre-emergence
  • Farmers prefer the pre-emergence stage for the application of herbicide safeners, as it reduces the damage to crops from herbicides

COVID-19 Impact on Herbicide Safeners Market

  • On January 30, 2020, the International Health Regulations Emergency Committee of the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak a public health emergency of international concern. Originating in China, the virus has spread to at least 213 countries and territories around the world.
  • Several governments and private sector businesses are operating at a limited capacity or have ceased operations completely due to recent events surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Decrease in industrial activities due to the pandemic has been adversely impacting the global herbicide safeners market

Asia Pacific Dominates Herbicide Safeners Market

  • In terms of region, the global herbicide safeners market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • Latin America accounted for major share of the global herbicide safeners market in 2020 owing to the rise in farming of soybean and corn crops in the region. Demand for herbicide safeners is anticipated to continue to rise in the region due to growth in application of selective herbicides in farming.
  • The herbicide safeners market in Asia Pacific is estimated to expand at considerable pace during the forecast period due to the growth of the agriculture industry in the region. Expansion of the herbicide safeners market can be ascribed to high production of rice, wheat, and other selective crops in Asia Pacific.
  • The herbicide safeners market in Europe and North America is estimated to expand at a moderate pace during the forecast period due to strict regulatory norms regarding the use of herbicides in these regions. The herbicide safeners market in Middle East & Africa is estimated to expand at a sluggish pace during the forecast period.
