The global acaricides market is estimated to be valued at $275.1 million by 2019, at a projected CAGR of 5.2% from 2014.
Acaricides are chemicals that are manufactured and used for controlling the spread of arthropod pests. These pests, if allowed to spread, cause huge losses to agriculture and also infect various animals in the animal husbandry industry. There are numbers of acaricides available, which have different concentrations of various chemicals like chlorine, phosphorus, zinc, and tin. Acaricides have toxic effects too, due to which natural products like neem, clove, and spoiled corns, are also being used for the production of acaricides. These natural acaricides tend to be less toxic.
The Asia-Pacific region is estimated to be the largest consumer of acaricides in the world, followed by Europe. China is estimated as the largest market in the Asia-Pacific, having captured around 44% of the total market in the region, in 2013.
