The global adjuvants market for herbicides was valued at $1067.7 million in 2012, and is expected to reach $1462.2 million by 2018. Herbicide adjuvants are chemical formulations that lower the surface tension of water in the spray mixture, increase sticking, dispersing, spreading, absorbing, and pest penetrating properties of the spray solutions on target surface area of crop. These chemicals improve area of contact with the waxy leaf surface, which increases the spreading of the solution. Non-ionic surfactant and oil based surfactant adjuvants perform better with herbicides. The global herbicide adjuvants market is expected to grow at a CAGR at 5.5% during the period 2013 to 2018.

Agricultural Adjuvants in Fungicides Market
Fungicide adjuvants are low-volume active ingredients that can enhance contact area and up-take rate of spray solution into the cell walls of the fungus. This results in advantages in terms of environment protection as well as cost reduction. The use of adjuvants with a fungicide can drastically improve absorption, and effectiveness of that fungicide or adjuvants make fungicide more active against the fungal spores on the leaf’s surface, as well as active inside the leaf’s cells. The selection of adjuvants depends upon a particular fungicide and fungus disease. The share of fungicide adjuvants in global agricultural adjuvant market was recorded at around 24% in 2012. The global adjuvants market for fungicides was of $527.1 million in 2012 and is expected to grow at a CAGR at 5.2% during the period 2013 to 2018.
Agricultural Adjuvants in Insecticide Market
Insecticide adjuvants are chemicals added to the spray tank along with insecticides and applied to plants. The addition of buffer adjuvants to insecticide sprays can result in extra coverage and efficacy. The environment-friendly, natural adherent, vegetable oil adjuvants are manufactured to help insecticides attend to the plants. It is important for pest management, and has a significant impact on the profitability and crop quality. The global insecticide agricultural adjuvants market is led by North America with revenue of $153.3 million in 2012, followed by Europe with revenue of $80.0 million.
