Global Specialty Pesticides Market: Overview
Pesticides are a vast variety of chemicals used for the prevention, management, or destruction of pests capable of causing plant diseases and causing disturbance to the normal growth and development of plants, thereby dropping its aesthetic or economic value. Plant diseases are usually caused by living agents such as parasitic plants, micro-organisms, and insects, and by non-living factors such as chemical substances or faulty nutrition. Pesticides are used to culminate the effect of living or biotic agents such as insects, fishes, and mammals. As obvious from the name, insecticides only affect insects and herbicides affect only herbs, making these two the subgroups of pesticides
Many other varieties of pesticides besides insecticides are available in the market, including algaecides, fungicides, rodenticides, and bactericides. Specialty pesticides are specifically used for controlling microbes, invasive species of fishes, and other pests.

Global Specialty Pesticides Market: Drivers and Restraints
As the global population continues to grow, the demand for food and the resultant need for more food crops is also significantly rising to meet this growing demand. This has increased the focus on ways of improving crop yield, of which the use of pesticides is one of the most popular. The global usage of specialty pesticides has continued to rise owing to these factors and will embark upon a path of healthy growth in the next few years as well.
However, specialty pesticides being synthetic chemicals, their remnants have harmful impact on the health of the environment and living organisms. Concerns regarding this factor are expected to be the key restraint arresting the overall growth of the market to a certain extent.
Presently, the leading consumers of pesticides are some of the developed regions including North America, Western Europe, and developed countries such as Japan in Asia Pacific. Herbicides dominate the markets in these regions. Developing economies such as India, China, and Singapore presently lag in the use of pesticides. In these regions, insecticides are prominently used as most marketed varieties are no longer protected by patents, making them cheap as compared to herbicides and fungicides.
