Genetically modified crops segment, with respect to crop type, is projected to dominate the glufosinate market
The usage of genetically modified crops is increasing because of its cost-effective characteristic. Genetically modified crops have wide usage applications for glyphosate and glufosinate for weed controlling purposes.
Herbicide-tolerant crops consistently occupied the largest planting area of biotech crops. Increase in the area under cultivation of herbicide-tolerant crops will drive growth in glufosinate market since glyphosate-resistant weeds are gradually growing across regions.
Agricultural applications are driving the glufosinate market globally
The agricultural applications segment accounted for a larger share in the glufosinate market in terms of both, value and volume, in 2015. Glufosinate is used in no-tillage agriculture, which helps farmers in controlling grasses and broad-leaved weeds in a range of agricultural and horticultural crops.
It is also used as a desiccant on agricultural crops. Furthermore, the introduction of genetically modified glufosinate-tolerant crops will increase the use of glufosinate on various agricultural applications such as grains, cereals, and oilseeds.
Considering the high costs of glufosinate, its usage for non-agricultural applications is limited.
North America: Lucrative market for opportunities for glufosinate
