is organic in nature and is a chloride salt of paraquat. Paraquat dichloride also known as 1, 1- dimethyl-4, 4’-bipyridinium is classified as a viologen, which is a family of redox - active heterocyclic’s of similar structures. Paraquat dichloride is majorly used as a non-selective and quick acting herbicide, which kills plant tissues directly on contact. However, it seeps into ground water and contaminate it, thereby reducing the quality of drinking water. It is extremely phototoxic and hence Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommended that the use of this chemical be stopped. Globally, increasing agricultural activities, growing demand for herbicides in order to get rid of unwanted plants and weeds, and increasing government initiative across the globe are the prime growth drivers of global paraquat dichloride market. In addition, increase in adoption of paraquat dichloride in emerging economies such as China, India and others, will create new opportunities for global paraquat dichloride market. However, higher cost of the research and development, hazardous to human health, and stringent government environmental regulations are the key restraints for global paraquat dichloride market.
