Growth in the crop protection chemicals market is expected to be predominantly driven by increased adoption rates for biopesticides owing to increased demand for organic food, lower developmental costs, less strict regulatory approval procedures, and a stringent regulatory environment, which increases the focus of agrochemical companies on biopesticides as they are a solution to overcome pest resistance to chemical pesticides. Factors that stimulate the overall unit shipment and revenue growth of this market are increasing population and higher food demand, decreasing arable land, increasing herbicide resistance (which necessitates the use on different chemistries), increased demand for biofuels, and in addition, manufacturers contributing to the market with new product innovations, which claim to be safer for the environment with higher efficiency. Technological innovations by manufacturers (such as nanopesticides that offer controlled pesticide release), exploration of epigenetics to develop promising new fungicide molecules, and the advent of digital farming tools with precise data from farms that can optimize the volume consumption of various crop protection chemicals are some market trends expected to aid in achieving superior quality products and improved application techniques. For instance, SIMPAS by AMVAC and Bayer CropScience is conducting R&D to develop software to aid precision in agriculture by optimizing application volumes of crop protection chemicals. Key questions this study will answer: Is the market growing? How long will it continue to grow, and at what rate? What technology, product, and regulatory trends are seen in the market? How are the major mergers and acquisitions (M&A) impacting the crop protection market? Are the products meeting customer needs or is additional development needed? What are the key drivers for crop protection chemicals market growth?

Dairy production contributes to sustainable agricultural development and food security across the globe. As a distinctive aspect in comparison with other food products, milk processing has a long tradition in several regions. There is a large variety of typical regionally-branded cheeses produced in different areas all over the world, which are deeply appreciated by all demographics. Consumer demand and current market conditions are dramatically promoting the re-shaping of the industry in order to deliver improved product quality and safety for customers. Simultaneously, the advent of novel technologies in the fields of life sciences, micro/nanotechnology, advanced materials, electronics, engineering, and information and communication, constitute a unique opportunity for companies to embrace new food safety solutions. This research service profiles emerging technologies that will enable the dairy sector to meet future needs, as well as open up new possibilities for the sector to impact and converge with other sectors. Control measures in the dairy value chain are associated with the environment, crop production, and harvesting, feed manufacturing, animal husbandry/milk production, processing/manufacturing, transport and distribution, retail, and consumer. The research has established that the ultimate goal of the dairy industry, is ensuring food safety. The research also emphasizes that: For food safety and risk management to be effective, well-established control measures (proactive and reactive) must be implemented as an integral part of management along the food chain. Control measures that apply to all outcome specifications at different levels of the food chain must ensure that potential gaps in the continuum are effectively dealt with. To realize these objectives, the dairy industry employs a wide range of safety technologies such as intervention technologies, packaging technologies, electronic traceability, pathogen testing, and automated food and processing, among others.
