Increasing demand for biobased agricultural adjuvants

There is a growing awareness among the agricultural community about the value of incorporating natural and renewable ingredients in formulations. This factor continues to increase the demand for biobased adjuvants and fuels the development of greener solutions for agricultural applications. Most of the adjuvants used in agriculture are derived from petroleum or other chemical sources. The surplus use of these adjuvants in pesticides negatively impact the health of humans, animals, fragile biological ecosystems and the environment. As a result, manufacturers are focusing on developing adjuvant products made from renewable resources. Manufacturers aims to offer biobased agricultural adjuvants that increases the effectiveness of agrochemicals while also providing higher levels of safety and biodegradability.

Growing population across the globe is accelerating the market growth

The population across the globe is growing. According to the United Nations, the world’s population is expected to increase by 2 billion persons in the next 30 years, from 7.7 billion currently to 9.7 billion in 2050.  The growth in the population is being driven by increasing numbers of people surviving to reproductive age, increasing urbanization and accelerating migration. This creates the need for food to feed an ever-growing population. With this, it becomes more important than ever to utilize agriculture techniques and products that can be applied as safely, efficiently and optimally as possible. Hence, farmers are highly using agricultural adjuvants to improve the performance of crop protection and crop nutrient products by enhancing the spreading, penetration and rainfastness characteristics of pesticide formulations.
