Global Organophosphate Pesticides Market Introduction
Organophosphates also termed as phosphate esters, are the esters of phosphoric acids, whereas Organophosphate pesticides are the pesticides with organophosphate being the principal ingredient. Organophosphates are Organophosphate pesticides are highly toxic pesticides which can have a direct impact on human nervous system. Initially organophosphates were used as a war gas, however, for constructive purpose applications, the product has been modified to be used including crop protection and others, have been developed slowly. Organophosphate pesticides are considered as a hazardous chemical where prolonged contact in farms may lead to harmful effects on farmers on long term exposure. Many countries have banned the use of several types of organophosphates, however some of the organophosphates are still used globally in significant quantities for various applications. The various applications of organophosphates includes crop protection, garden protection, veterinary uses, and home insect treatments.

Even after environmental regulations and bans on some of the organophosphate pesticides, the overall organophosphate pesticides market is favored to witness a significant growth. Increasing innovation and new combinations of organophosphate with other chemicals is expected to push the demand for organophosphates pesticides, in coming years.
Market Dynamics of Organophosphate Pesticides Market
Increasing demand for crop protection chemicals
A wide range of agrochemicals are being consumed in the agricultural industry. Organophosphates pesticides has been contributing to a significant portion of the overall pesticides sales since their inception and is expected to have a prolonged growth in the agricultural industry. This is due to the fact that high efficiency and effectiveness of organophosphate based pesticides has been preferred in agricultural industry over other substitutes. The new developments in the agrochemical industry with improved effectiveness of pesticides on various pests is pushing the growth in demand for such improved pesticides in the market. Pests are responsible for the high loss of crops every year. Pest control is necessary task in overall agricultural processes. Organophosphate pesticides are proved as an effective pesticide for various types of pests. With the advent and robust growth of household pesticides market in residential and commercial space, the organophosphates market in turn is also expected to benefit from the same in terms of demand augmentation.
High level of toxicity of organophosphates and environmental concerns
Some of the organophosphates are globally banned due to their harmful effects on humans as well as environment. Increasing concerns for environmental protection including concerns for aquatic life is expected to hamper the potential growth of organophosphate pesticides market. However, combinations of organophosphates with other chemicals, to improve its performance and reduce the toxicity, is at the center of focus for product formulation by leading players in the market
