Fact.MR has published a new report on the global bromacil market. In-depth analysis on the global trends that hold significant influence over the market growth during the forecast period of 2018 – 2027 is included in the report. Global agricultural outlook, demand for higher productivity, dearth of farm labor, and environmental toxicity associated with the use of bramocil are few of the important factors impacting future demand for the herbicides including bromacil.
Initially registered as a pesticide in 1961, bramocil is now commercially available as herbicide compounds. Majorly applied to control range of grass and broadleaf weed species, bromacil is used to control weeds in the fields of pineapple, citrus, asparagus, and agave.
Commercially available as granule, soluble concentrate or wettable powder, bromacil is sprayed on the soil surface using sprayers that are hand-held, knapsack, compressed air, tank-type or power operated. From the soil, bromacil is absorbed through roots and spread throughout the plant. Mode of action involves interference in the process of photosynthesis by inhibiting transport of photosynthetic electrons.
By 2050, the global population is expected to reach 9.7 billion. A two-fold rise in the cereal crop production is expected to feed this increased population. This has generated pressure on the agricultural community to deliver higher productivity. However, to increase the productivity, farmers face variety of challenges including protecting plants from diseases, maintaining crop quality, resource constraints, and financial support. To overcome these challenges and achieve higher productivity, farmers are adopting modern farming methods such as use of pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides. Thus, demand for herbicides including bromacil is projected to increase in future owing to increased pressure of productivity.
In developing agriculture-driven countries utilization of herbicides is higher due to rising shortage of hand-weeding labor. Research studies have observed that use of weedicides or regular removal of weeds can lead to increased use of fertilizers and further increase the crop yield. Although hand weeding is more economical, increased farm wages due to consistent economic growth has favored adoption of herbicides in agricultural fields. Further, overall economic growth has created non-farm employment opportunities which are, in turn, reducing the available labor, and increasing the adoption of weedicides or herbicides. Benefits of bromacil such as affordability and application flexibility make the herbicide popular in the farmer community.
Synthetic chemicals used in the agricultural community have been consistently discussed due to their toxic effects on the environment. Fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides and other chemicals might increase the productivity in volumes, however, they present significant threat to environment, farmers, and other animals. Unwise use of herbicides has been a common approach practiced by farmers. Costa Rica, in 2017, issued a ban on the use of bromacil due to its harmful effect on soil as well as human health. Despite EPA’s stringent regulations, traces of bromacil has been reported some drinking water reservoirs. As the scenario of restricted use or complete ban on bromacil prevails, EPA’s changing risk assessment approaches are likely to influence growth of the global bromacil market.
Organic products have witnessed increased adoption among consumers obsessed with clean labels. Due to higher demand, the organic agriculture sector has witnessed dramatic growth in past decade. According to FiBL, approximately 57.8 million of agricultural land is managed organically and has generated over US$ 90 billion market revenue. In 2016, approximately 2 million organic producers were reported across the globe. Organic farming does not involve use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. As organic products are highly sought after by consumers, market for bromacil is likely to remain under the influence of this trend.

Organic product manufacturers have introduced new natural organic herbicides, which are non-selective, non-systematic, and break down quickly leaving no residues behind. Some of the vendors have launched organic weed control solutions in form of spray that kills seeds and provide long-term sustainable results.
In conclusion, the report on the global bromacil market includes in-depth analysis of above-stated factors that influence the market growth. Such thorough analysis has made the report the most comprehensive source of research that can assist financial community in making business decisions.
