Soil Fumigant is a pest control technique, applied prior to crop plantation, wherein the land is filled with gaseous fumigants to eliminate pests present in the soil. Soil fumigants target soil-borne pests, including nematodes, fungi, bacteria, weeds, and insects and hence play a significant role in agriculture, nursery, and turf grass. Globally, increasing instances of crop diseases, rising per hector production to meet food demand, increase in global cereals production, and growing focus on increasing the quality of agricultural output are the prime growth drivers of global soil fumigant market. In addition, increase in adoption of soil fumigant in emerging economies such as China, India and others, will create new opportunities for global soil fumigant market. However, higher cost of the research and development, harmful effects of residue accumulation, and stringent government regulations and approval process are the key restraints for soil fumigant market.
Geographically Asia Pacific dominated soil fumigant market owing to rapidly increasing population, growing food demand, changing lifestyles of customers, rising incomes, purchasing power, consumer demand for nutritional & healthy products, rise in consumer awareness, and favourable government policies in developing nations such as China, and India in this region. North America and Europe follow the Asia Pacific market respectively, owing to stringent regulations on chemicals used in agriculture. Among all the type of soil fumigant, methyl bromide has the highest market share in global soil fumigant market.
