Results Glyphosate use in the U. Cooperation with international players can grant manufacturers the sales channels and marketing expertise to get their products easier to clients around the world.
Since glyphosate is the most efficient herbicide which helps in complete control of weeds, irrespective of species and physiology, most of the research and development activities are targeted at glyphosate tolerance.
Estimates of overall GBH use by U. The volume applied increased steadily, but not dramatically, throughto Woodburn [ 29 ] summarized global glyphosate use from —, and provided valuable information on agricultural and non-agricultural uses. Glyphosate, the key active ingredient of the famous weed killer Roundup, is one of the most commonly sold herbicides in the global market today.The other main challenge of the industry is the government's strict environmental protection policy, which requires manufacturers to invest in costly waste treatment systems and forces them, to limit or halt production in some cases. At a global level, the market is fairly fragmented due to this effect. On account of the increasing levels of penetration of herbicide-tolerant hybrids, the North American region is expected to remain as one of the fastest-growing regions. NASS surveys a limited number of crops in any given year. Major Players. In the tables that follow, pesticide use is linearly interpolated in years lacking survey data but bounded by reported values. Business transformation and upgrading were also keywords at the ACE Woodburn [ 29 ] summarized global glyphosate use from —, and provided valuable information on agricultural and non-agricultural uses. New product launches, expansions, innovations, and partnerships are the major strategies adopted by the leading companies in the glyphosate herbicide market. Glyphosate is applied in a variety of forms including isopropylamine salt, ammonium salt, diammonium salt, dimethylammonium salt, and potassium salt [ 1 ]. The EPA has not reported pesticide use data since According to market intelligence firm CCM, the increased environmental investigations in China will undoubtedly increase pressure on manufacturers, negatively affecting the supply of glyphosate and its raw material, which in turn support current price hikes of glyphosate in China. Data from these briefs were combined with estimates of average glyphosate rates of application [ 27 ], Additional file 1 : Table S21 , yielding estimates of total glyphosate use from to on GE, herbicide-tolerant cotton, maize, soybeans, and canola, and globally for all crops [ 27 ], Additional file 1 : Table S These crops are the main application scope for glyphosate and the trend is still hard to predict.
With policies such as the new Regulations on Pesticide Administration, the markets and technologies provide the right conditions for transformation and upgrading.
In the Asia-Pacific region, the growth in the market is expected to be more organic in nature.
According to market intelligence firm CCM, the increased environmental investigations in China will undoubtedly increase pressure on manufacturers, negatively affecting the supply of glyphosate and its raw material, which in turn support current price hikes of glyphosate in China.
What influences the glyphosate industry in China? Another factor that may keep the international glyphosate prices — and the prices of other pesticides — high is the trend for mega-mergers between huge agrochemical companies. These tables report average rates of glyphosate application and rate per crop year weighted by the acres treated with each of the multiple forms of glyphosate included in NASS surveys.
