Insecticides are used to control insects and arthropods that feed on crops. Fungicides are used to prevent and manage fungal diseases in plants. Herbicides are employed to control weeds that compete with crops for nutrients and resources. Rodenticides Target rodents that may damage crops and stored produce. Fertilizers provide essential nutrients to plants to promote healthy growth and maximize yield. They are categorized into Macronutrient fertilizers and Micronutrient fertilizers Soil Amendments improve soil structure, fertility, and water retention. Lime, gypsum, and organic matter fall under this category. Biological Control Agents such as predatory insects, parasites, and microbes are used to control pests, diseases, and weeds in an eco-friendly manner.

Expanding population, rapid urbanization, and industrialization, the overall amount of arable land in the area is decreasing. As a result, farmers utilize agrochemicals to increase productivity and output. A lot of residues are produced when such pesticides are used excessively, which has an effect on crops. Agriculture products suffer from deficiencies in nutrients and quality degradation as a result of these residues. These residues have been connected to a number of ailments when consumed. For instance, residues of pesticides in food can raise a person's risk of developing asthma.



  • Awareness among farmers about potential benefits

  • Increasing demand for crop protection products in agriculture

The increased need for fertilizers and crop protection products in agriculture around the world is attributed to the expansion. Farmers' increased usage of fertilizers to feed nutrients to crops and increase yield is a crucial element in increasing agrochemicals demand. The advancement of the agrochemical industry has allowed farmers in many nations to participate in intensive crop management.  Rising awareness about the use of agrochemicals and the increased crop yield with minimum loss has led to changed farmer's agricultural practices.


  • Growing trend towards organic and bio-based agricultural products

  • Lack of knowledge about proper uses of agrochemicals

  • Increasing pesticide resistance in some insect species

Overreliance on pesticides leads to the evolution of resistance to pests, weeds, or diseases. Increasing resistance against agrochemicals is a growing concern in modern agriculture. It occurs when pests, weeds, or diseases evolve and develop the ability to withstand the effects of these chemicals, rendering them less effective or ineffective over time. Rather than addressing the root causes of resistance, companies formulate new chemicals. These new chemicals have older and more complex substances which are more harmful to human life causing disease. Hence, these harmful impacts pose significant challenges to market growth.


  • Crop-specific nutrient management through precision farming

Precision farming, also known as precision agriculture or site-specific farming, is a high-tech approach to crop production that uses technology and data to optimize various elements of crop production. It aims to improve agricultural production, efficiency, and sustainability by adapting practices and inputs to the demands of distinct areas within a field or farm. Also, it minimizes input waste (e.g. fertilizers, pesticides) by applying them just where they are needed, saving money and having a minimal environmental impact. Real-time data allows farmers to make timely and appropriate decisions, resulting in better crop management.


  • Disruption of the supply of agrochemicals

  • The rising cost of raw materials used in agrochemicals

Farmers are paying more for herbicides and insecticides as fertilizer, seeds, and fuel prices rise. The rising number and complexity of agrochemical licensing requirements are driving up the expenses of research and development, and thus the price of agrochemicals. As a result, farmers limit fertilizer applications due to the inability to afford them and accessibility difficulties.


Due to the Russian invasion, cultivated land in Ukraine was much reduced in 2022 than the previous year. This resulted in significantly reduced yields and farmers' cautious investment behavior, which is reflected in decreased demand for crop inputs. The war severely damaged the infrastructure for transporting and storing grain. The same issues might be seen with agrochemical supplies to the Ukrainian market. Many of the major agrochemical companies, like ADAMA, have operations in Ukraine and Russia since they are both important markets for cereal and oilseed crop production, which is subsequently sold to other parts of the world. Russia is also a major exporter of potash and other fertilizers, and if sanctions are imposed, there may be shortages and continuous price increases. Because of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the fertilizer sector is likely to be the most impacted of all agricultural inputs. According to a recent Rabobank report, potash is likely to be the most impacted product because Belarus and Russia account for 40% of global production and exports.


Every country's gross domestic product (GDP) is fundamentally dependent on its agricultural industry, which also ensures a steady need for agrichemicals there. Exports of complex nitrogen fertilizers and nitrogen through June 2022 are initially restricted by Russia. The cost of fertilizers has increased as a result of these sanctions. As the crisis between Russia and Ukraine continues, supply issues may also contribute to elevated fertilizer costs for a long period. However, due to a drop in global agricultural commerce along with sluggish economic growth and low commodity prices, fertilizer price rises during the Great Recession were only temporary after fertilizer consumption fell.

14. Conclusion

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
