  • Herbicides
  • Insecticides
  • Fungicides

Agriculture continues to dominate the pesticides industry in Japan. The Japan pesticides market is witnessing significant rise due to the emergence of number of small market players and development of variety of pesticide products.

Worldwide small commercial and consumer pesticides market is expected to witness fastest growth compared to the established market because of the extensive use of these products on field crops accounting for almost pesticide consumption.
