Market Analysis for Pesticides for Home and GardenIncreasing population, increasing knowledge about the use of pesticides and other reasons are driving the expansion of the home and garden pesticides market. Herbicides are the largest segment of the pesticide market and it is expected to grow in the coming years. Other factors driving the home and garden pesticides market are the growing demand for weed control and food safety. Rapid population growth and urbanization will create opportunities in the home and garden pesticide business.

Aerosol Insecticides Market ForecastInsecticides are widely used in agricultural fields, urban green spaces, and in public health initiatives to protect humans and plants from numerous diseases. Aerosol insecticides, or insecticides packaged in aerosol form, are praised for producing less waste than other types of insecticides because they are designed to only release a specific amount of poison with each spray. As a result, the global aerosol insecticide market continues to play a significant role in the insecticide sector.

Growth of the market for biorational fungicidesBiorational fungicides are fungicides that have no or minimal negative effects on the human body or the environment. Due to their low toxicity, they are suitable for use in organic greenhouses and indoor farming facilities. The industry is expected to benefit from the growing trend to use organic fertilizers, insecticides and fungicides instead of chemicals. Growing global knowledge of the benefits of using organic farming products is driving demand for organic farming ingredients, which will ultimately increase demand for organic pesticides, especially biologically rational fungicides.
