Rapid rise in demand for fruits and vegetables, led by changing dietary patterns, is expected to drive the global fungicides market. Additionally, increase in demand for yield enhancing agricultural inputs (including fungicides) due to rising food security concerns among the booming global population and declining arable land is expected to propel the fungicides market during the forecast period. Furthermore, increasing demand for fungicides in non-crop applications such as turf and ornamental plants is projected to augment the market during the forecast period. However, rising incidences of resistance to fungicides and shift toward genetically modified disease resistant crops are likely to hamper market growth in the next few years. Increase in awareness among farmers about benefits of fungicides is estimated to be an important opportunity for market players during the forecast period.
