The glufosinate market is estimated to be valued at USD 1.37 Billion in 2016, and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.25% from 2016 to 2022. Glufosinate are widely accepted in agricultural and non-agricultural applications and play a vital role in weed controlling. Its usage is growing in recent years because it is considered as a suitable substitute for glyphosate and paraquat. The proportion of glyphosate-resistant weeds has been growing over the past few years because of its extensive usage. Farmers consider glufosinate as a better alternative in the non-selective herbicides market to protect and maintain crop yield. Furthermore, the USFDA considers glufosinate as a safer option compared to other herbicides available in the U.S. market such as paraquat. Hence, glufosinate should be viewed as a business opportunity in the next five years.

On the basis of crop type, the global market is segmented into genetically modified crops and conventional crops. The genetically modified crops dominated the market owing to its major use in the production of various products and wider availability. Genetic modified techniques are widely used to make crops herbicide-resistant.
The global glufosinate market, on the basis of application, is segmented into agricultural and non-agricultural applications. The demand for glufosinate is expected to increase in the next few years due to the growing yield of agricultural crops such as corn, soybean, beans, canola, sugar beets, sugar cane, and sweet potato that are genetically modified to tolerate glufosinate. The grains & cereals segment accounted for the largest market share in 2015.
The forms of glufosinate considered for the study are liquid and dry. Liquid formulation of glufosinate is widely used as it has low temperature stability as compared to dry formulations, which has a long process of usage.
In 2015, the North American region accounted for the largest share of the global glufosinate market in terms of value and volume. The glufosinate market in North America is also projected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. This region comprises developed economies such as U.S. and Canada, where the U.S. is a key producer of various agricultural applications. There is growing awareness observed in the U.S. with regard to glufosinate products. Glufosinate is registered for use in crops such as almonds, apples, bananas, berries, canola, corn, cotton, grapes, potatoes, rice, soybean, and tree nuts in the U.S. which has resulted in the growth of the market in this region.
