Miticides Market To 2023 Analysis, Business Strategy, Opportunities, Trend, Mark

Posted by Market Research Future on June 6th, 2019

Market Synopsis:

Mites are small arthropods that attack crops. The majority of mites are beneficial to the environment such as predatory mites which include Phystoseiulus, Amplyeius, and Agistemus. However, mites such as the two-spotted spider mite, banks grass mite, and red mites pose a threat to crops.

Two-spotted mites attack cotton, soybean canola, lucerne, peanut, mung bean, navy bean, and azuki bean. Heavy infestations will result in leaf desiccation, leaf drop, and yield loss. Miticides play an important role in killing and controlling the growth of mites on plants.

Increasing awareness about the advantages of miticides in maximizing overall yield by decreasing losses is primarily driving the growth of the global miticides market. This growth is also influenced by research and development of miticides such as usage in a broad range of crops, targeted knockdown of all life stages of mites with no toxicity to beneficial insects (predatory mites and pollinators), compatibility with integrated pest management (IPM) programs, long residual control, nature-based miticides, and cost-effectiveness. Quick action and easy handling are also boosting the growth of the product market.

To meet the growing demand for miticides, companies are incorporating these products into their portfolios. For instance, on 22 February 2017, OHP Inc. introduced a miticide under the brand name Notavo Ovicide for ornamental crops to provide long-term control of eggs and immature stages of two-spotted spider mites and other mites. On 17 February 2017, Gowan USA introduced a miticide/insecticide under the brand Nexter that helps knockdown and control broad mites, rust mites, pear psylla, aphids, whiteflies, spider mites, and leafhopper nymphs.

The US Food Quality and Protection Act restricts the use of chemical miticides above the recommended amount due to their harmful effects on pollinators, birds, and beneficial mites.  Excessive use can lead to high levels of residue, which is expected to hamper the growth of the product market to some extent during the forecast period. However, the correct dosage of chemical miticides and the development of eco-friendly miticides can provide growth opportunities to market players during the forecast period.
