The demand for food grains is rising at a robust pace across the world as the global population is growing each year. This has created immense pressure on the agriculture sector to cater to the demand for high-quality food grains. This scenario has prompted farmers to look for various ways to increase their crop yield rate and protect their crops from pest infestation. These factors are expected to augment the grain fumigants market share.

Rising Need to Safeguard Agricultural Produce from Damage to Boost Market Growth

While the demand for food grains is always high throughout the year, the demand for these products was particularly high during the pandemic period. The outbreak accelerated the trend of panic buying, with customers hoarding essential items such as food. This period also witnessed severe fluctuations in the food supply chain, thereby causing a major hike in the prices of grains in the market. This spiked the demand for durable and high-quality pest products such as grain fumigants. Many countries also introduced new protocols related to the sale and usage of fumigants during this period. This aspect further supported the grain fumigant market share.

Robust Demand for High-quality Food Grains to Boost Market Growth

The demand for food is growing at a considerable pace every year, which has prompted farmers to either expand their current area of agricultural cultivation or purchase crop protection chemicals. These chemicals can not only help the increase their annual crop yield rate but also enhance the soil health. This scenario has positively influenced the adoption of pesticides, such as soil fumigants, in the past few years to cater to the high demand for high-quality food grains. These fumigants can help farmers effectively eliminate soil-based pathogens such as nematodes and fungi. These products can protect the soil’s quality, making them ideal for crop cultivation and boosting the grain fumigants market growth.
