The global Agricultural Disinfectants Market is anticipated to reach a significant valuation and capture a CAGR of 3.9% over the forecast period of 2017-2023, as per a research report published by Market Research Future (MRFR). To meet the demands of the multiplying population and increase farm productivity, agricultural practitioners are using disinfectants for crop protection which is a primary driving force behind the market growth. In addition, deterioration of water quality and environmental constraints too boosts the market growth. High disease outburst among livestock along with high demand for meat products contributes to the market growth significantly. The ban on the use of antibiotics in animal feed is also a driver of the market. However, side effects associated with agricultural disinfectants, lethargic attitude towards adoption of new technology and lack of awareness and knowledge among agriculture practitioners regarding proper use of agricultural disinfectants hamper the growth of the market. The emergence of organic agricultural disinfectants is expected to create lucrative growth opportunities over the forecast period.
