Key Challenges and Issues facing the Emerging Trends and Opportunities in the World Pesticides Market

New York, NY | Posted on October 30th, 2008

Just thinking about pests may be enough to provoke great anxiety in everyone from homeowners to farmers. Insects, rodents and noxious weeds can spread diseases, inflict injury, initiate allergies, trigger asthma and damage food—a major concern as the world population expands and food prices rise. It's no wonder that the global and U.S. pesticide industry is growing and innovating in spite of vociferous challenges from extreme environmental groups and heavy media scrutiny. In fact, Specialists in Business Information estimates the global pesticide market surged 29% over the 2007 level of $40.7 billion to $52.4 billion—a record increase that came at a time when a global financial crisis was in full swing.

This all-new Specialists in Business Information report looks at challenges and opportunities in pesticides market, such as biotechnology, nanotechnology, corporate ethics, counterfeiting and a special section on the green and organic movements.

The report contains detailed data and analysis describing the U.S. market for pesticides. And because the supply and demand of pesticides is much more expansive, the U.S. market is also looked at in the context of the global marketplace. The report examines both the value of the market, various components of trade, an analysis of economic factors affecting the industry, in addition to a major end-user market analysis.
