Fertilizers are substances applied to soil or plants to provide essential nutrients that promote plant growth and increase crop yields. The U.S. agrochemicals market includes both synthetic fertilizers, such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium-based fertilizers, and organic fertilizers derived from natural sources like compost, manure, and bio-based materials.

The significant surge in population growth is creating huge concerns about obtaining food security. Traditional farming methods are leading to lower productivity, enabling farmers to shift to alternative ways with a boost in agricultural productivity. One of the major factors driving agrochemicals adoption is the higher growth of population over food production. As per the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Report 2022, around 12.8% of households in the United States are witnessing food insecurity. As this pertains further, there will be a significant rise in research activities to improve agricultural production, driving new agrochemical innovations in the country.

  • For instance, in July 2023, Lucent Bio received approval for its biodegradable smart fertilizer system from the United States. This technology is expected to enable farmers to get a higher return on investment.

Moreover, technological advancements in the agricultural sector are likely to facilitate significant opportunities for agrochemicals in the long run. For instance, in April 2023, Innvictis introduced its latest adjuvant technology, Inntero, to improve the effectiveness of pesticides.

However, growing awareness about organic products and increasing government support for organic farmers are expected to restrict the use of agrochemicals in the United States. The prevalence of huge costs associated with agrochemical development is anticipated to create obstacles to market growth.

Growth Drivers

Rising Concerns about Food Safety

The decreasing number of people engaging in agriculture is expected to propel initiatives to drive food production in the United States. This emphasizes governments to formulate effective policies to incentivize people to enter agriculture and increase earning potential. There will be a reasonable demand for pesticides and fertilizers in the country, driven by their ability to boost yield and the growing development of hybrid and genetically modified seeds, which may necessitate agrochemical use during the forecast period.

Increasing Collaborations in Agrochemical Development

The rise in research activities towards agrochemicals, followed by such product launches in the U.S., is creating new growth prospects. Researchers are concerned about sustainable green fertilizers having positive outcomes without any undesirable impact on landmass or future generations. In line with this, PepsiCo and Fertiberia collaborated to introduce environment environment-friendly fertilizer program with the aim of reducing carbon emissions from potato farming via replacing green hydrogen instead of natural gas.  Moreover, the rising production of agrochemicals worldwide is expected to drive agrochemical market expansion in the United States.

Restraining Factors

Government Policies to Promote Sustainable Farming

Government and non-government organizations are increasing efforts to combat environmental pollution. This is expected to hamper the demand for agrochemicals in the long run.

According to the UN Environment Programme, around 12 billion kilograms of plastics and 4 billion tons of pesticides are anticipated to be produced in agricultural farms annually. At the same time, approximately 11000 people died due to adverse pesticide effects.

Additionally, increasing investments is likely to restrain agrochemical utility around the world, including the United States. For instance, in March 2023, Kenya, Philippines, Vietnam, Uruguay, Laos, and Ecuador announced an investment of USD 379 million to reduce agricultural pollution caused by pesticides and plastic.

By Fertilizer Analysis

Nitrogen Fertilizer Segment is Expected to Witness the Highest Growth During the Forecast Period

The nitrogen fertilizer segment is projected to grow at a CAGR during the projected period, mainly driven by its role in improving reproduction and driving plant growth. This nitrogen fertilizer passes nutrients to the plants more quickly, supporting plant productivity and growth. Furthermore, the growing demand for emission-free fertilizers is likely to bolster nitrogen fertilizer adoption.

The phosphatic fertilizer segment led the market with a substantial revenue share in 2023, largely attributable to its ability to strengthen the root, flower, and seed development process in plants. It plays a vital role in safeguarding plants from extreme weather conditions. Additionally, the rising innovations in phosphatic fertilizer development are unraveling the true potential of these fertilizers in the marketplace.

By Pesticides Type Analysis

The Herbicides Segment Accounted for the Largest Market share in 2023

The herbicides segment accounted for the largest market share in 2023 and is likely to retain its market position throughout the forecast period. The increasing growth of weeds in crop farming, primarily in soybeans and corn, is driving the expansion of the agrochemicals market in the United States. Based on the USDA Data, 94% of soybeans and 90% of corn are registering the prevalence of herbicides.
