Growing demand from key end-use applications in glyphosate tolerant GM crops and conventional crops is expected to boost the global demand for glyphosate. The agriculture sector is witnessing rapid growth in Asia Pacific, Latin America and other regions, thus fuelling the demand for glyphosate. However, unfavorable factors such as emergence of glyphosate resistant weeds and stringent environmental regulations over use of agrochemicals, especially in Europe, are expected to hinder market growth. Development of innovative integrated weed management systems is expected to catch up in the near future owing to their eco friendly characteristics.
