  • Country: Global
Glyphosate is a herbicide which is applied to leaves of the plants to kill annual broadleaf plants and grasses. Glyphosate (sodium salt) is also used to regulate plant growth and ripen fruit. In the year 1974, glyphosate was first registered for using in US. It was mostly used for agriculture in US followed by forestry, on lawns and gardens, and for weeds in industrial areas. Some products containing the herbicide are also used for controlling aquatic plants. WHO has claimed these agrochemicals are unlikely to cause cancer and are genotoxic in nature.

Market Dynamics

The global glyphosate herbicide market is projected to reach USD 11.74 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.8% over the forecast period 2017-2022.The growth in demands for food security along with increasing production of GM crops are identified as the major drivers for glyphosate. Cultivation of GM crops like soybean, rapeseed, maize, and cotton in developing regions of Asia-Pacific and South America will provide future potential for the sector. However, the ban on glyphosate in European countries and regulatory constraint over GM crops are the possible challenges faced by the industry.

Market Segmentation

The industry is segmented by application (oilseeds and pulses, cereals and grains, fruits and vegetables, and others), by type (conventional crops and GM crops-45% of total usage), and by geography (APAC, Europe, MEA, North America, and South America).
Regional/Geographic Analysis

The largest consumer base is in Asia-Pacific (mostly led by China and India) region followed by North America and Europe. As per reports, more than 300 glyphosate herbicides from more than 40 different companies are currently registered for sale in Europe. The low affordability and explicit cost cutting measures of farmers hinder the real potential of the market.


Increasing the per hectare yield with the global food demand will act as a fuel in increasing demand for glyphosate. Also, farmers are getting more aware about the plant growth enhancement with agricultural upliftment will boost the growth for glyphosate market. Rising production of genetically modified crops along with the increasing food consumption and demand from cattle feed will enhance the glyphosate market size.
