Adjuvants Market Size (2021-2026)


The global Adjuvants Market size is projected to reach USD 4.6 billion by 2026 from USD 3.7 billion in 2020. The market is growing with a CAGR of 6.3% from 2021-2026.


Modern agriculture makes use of adjuvants commonly. Adjuvants in agriculture help in fixing the productivity of pesticides and accordingly escalate the yield and performance of the crop. Adjuvants in the agricultural sector include oils, ammonium, fertilizers, and surfactants.


COVID-19 Impact on Adjuvants Market


With the quick spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the governments have shut down borders and economies to avoid the virus spread. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has recognized the COVID-19 spread is sagging in certain countries and regions globally.  Some countries are depending on global imports and facing hard circumstances. During the first half of 2020, the adjuvants market has experienced an adverse impact as the market depends on raw materials like petroleum and vegetable oil for their production. This factor causes an imbalance between the demand and supply quantities. Enormously the cost of the commodities has led to the increase in adjuvant prices.



Factors like increase in population volume with brisk urbanization along with accelerating issues to decrease the supply-demand among food consumption and production. These factors help in accumulating the adjuvant's market growth. The easy availability of economical and organically adequate adjuvants augments the growing market demand. The market growth is generated by increasing demand in agrochemical and growing significance for perfect farming. The demand for better crop yield is due to the decrease of agricultural lands. Also, the demand for fresh and better food is garnering quick growth in the adjuvants market growth throughout the forecasted period.


Moreover, the demand for food grains is stimulating ascribed to many existing countries from lower to middle-income economies.




However, the attention on inherently modified seeds and environmental validity are key factors restraining the adjuvants market.

Regional Analysis


With the largest share in the adjuvants market, North America is believed to grow with the majority of the share. It is the largest market for advanced crop protection technologies. The use of adjuvants is at a high level. In the U.S., farmers are more educated and have more knowledge about pesticides that are appropriate for their crop growth, and the rise in population led to the export of food grains from the developed economies. The U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) alters adjuvant formulations.


Europe is said to have a promising growth in the adjuvants market over the agricultural sector. As per the PAN Europe, 7% of the groundwater stations in the European countries believed that massive levels for one or more pesticides.


However, Asia-Pacific is expected to grow with speedy growth with the highest CAGR growth during the forecast period. The appearance of quickly developing countries like India and China boom the adjuvants market growth. In Asia-Pacific, agrochemicals adoption is on the hike, surging farm expenditure, and favorable government initiatives like fundings and incentive schemes fuel the market growth. In some Asian countries, the production of cereals and grains urge the herbicides segment in the adjuvants market.


Latin American market for adjuvants is estimated to observe strong and healthy growth from 2020-2026. The region's growth owes to the rising crop protection chemicals market with the growing strong adoption inclination for developed technologies in cultivation crops.


The Middle East and African adjuvants market has generated generous growth with USD 125 million by 2026 during the historical period. Many governments across different countries are upgrading efficient and superior farming methods. In MEA, utility adjuvants are used as it helps in the finer application of products over the desired product.
