COVID-19 Impact:

Need to Protect Stored Food Grains Boosted Demand for Fumigants During Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic skyrocketed the demand for food grains as the trend of panic buying grew tremendously during this period, creating massive shortage of essential products including food. However, the outbreak also caused severe supply chain disruptions, which rapidly increased the prices of food grains. This factor prompted customers to look for various ways to protect their stored food products, which boosted the demand for pest control products, augmenting the market expansion.

Grain Fumigants Market Growth Drivers Growing Demand for Well-equipped Grain Storage Facilities to Drive Market Growth
Rising Demand for High-quality Food Grains to Promote Adoption of Soil Fumigants among Farmers Globally


Phosphine to Find Robust Demand Among End-Users Due to Its Effectiveness in Controlling Pests

Solid Fumigation to Witness Strong Adoption due to Wide Availability

The market, on the basis of form, is divided into solid, liquid, and gas. Different fumigants have different modes of action based on their application and ingredients, but in all cases, there is a lethal reaction to the chemical that leads to suffocation. Solid segment holds the largest market share due to wider availability of the solid fumigants in the market and is expected to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to the prioritized use of solid fumigants in storage facilities.

Commercial Segment to Record Highest Growth Rate Owing to Increased Demand from Ports and Other Commercial Establishments

On the basis of application, the market is divided into commercial and residential. Commercial fumigation takes place in ports, railroads, vehicles, containers, ships, and warehouses. Marine fumigation is carried out on grains transported from one port to another by ship. Fumigation is carried out inside the container to control pest infestation caused by changes in humidity and temperature during transportation. Rail and vehicle fumigation is carried out on grains transported by car or train. With increasing number of transportation and trade services, demand for fumigants from the commercial segment makes it the largest and fastest-growing segment.

With respect to region, the market covers North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and the Middle East & Africa.

Drivers and Restraints:

High Demand for Advanced Grain Storage Facilities to Drive Market Growth

Some countries in the world are known for their high food grain production capacity, which may exceed the demand for these products in those nations. However, there are other economies as well that have a strong demand for food grains but have low crop production capacity. Such scenarios prompt countries to engage in food trade to fill the gap between production and consumption. Nations also take precautionary measures to keep the quality of food grains intact during storage. Fumigants are used in such cases as they keep pests and insects at bay. This factor is predicted to augment the market share.

However, since fumigants have a negative impact on the environment and human health, many end-users are wary of using them, thereby declining their sales and restricting the market growth.
