Plastic is the most widely used packaging material for agrochemical products. The demand for bags, bottles, pouches, and containers is increasing, and vendors are offering innovative and high-safety packaging solutions. For instance, Scholle IPN offers a bag-in-a-box pouch packaging solution for packaging agricultural chemical products in the market.

With the advancements in biodegradable packaging solutions further fueling the demand for packaging solutions, Market vendors are focusing on adopting biodegradable solutions as part of their offering, focusing on recycled resins. For instance, in April 2022, Syngenta, as part of the Sustainable Agriculture Plan, used recycled resin packaging for storing crop products, which involves a 50% reduction in the carbon intensity of the company’s operations.

Similarly, in January 2022, Mauser Packaging Solutions introduced a KORTRAX Barrier Tight-Head container for transporting hazardous solvent-based products. KORTRAX containers are 100% recyclable post-use and are available in 20-liter, 5-gallon, and 10-liter sizes.

In addition, the industry revenue of pesticides, fertilizers, and other agricultural chemicals in the major markets, especially the United States, has been declining since 2015. However, the region still commands one of the top positions when it comes to the manufacturing and export of agrochemicals across the world. According to the US Census Bureau, the industry revenue of fertilizer manufacturing in the United States is expected to reach USD 14 billion by 2024 and the pesticide and other agricultural chemical manufacturing is expected to reach USD 13.85 billion.

According to Cleanfarmers, Canadian farmers generally purchase crop input products such as fertilizers and pesticides in easy-to-handle 23L plastic jugs. In 2022, the recycling rate showed a significant surge in recycling these containers accounted for 76% compared to 71% in 2019.

Multiple initiatives are being launched in the region to recycle plastic pesticides containers. For instance, in May 2022, the Maryland Department of Agriculture’s Pesticide Regulation Section announced the 2022 dates and drop-off locations for its Pesticide Container Recycling Program.

More than 60 major brands, nonprofits, and government agencies are coming together to create a circular economy for plastics in the United States. Such acts are poised to reduce the usage of single-use plastics for agrochemical products in the region.

Containers and Cans Expected to Show Significant Adoption

Agrochemical manufacturers are dependent on cans and containers as agriculture chemicals, like fertilizers, pesticides, insecticides, and fungicides, contain reactive chemicals that are sensitive to various external factors, including excess moisture, and need to be packaged efficiently to prevent possible contamination.

The growth of the market is driven by the increase in the food industry in North America, as fertilizers and pesticides are largely used to enhance the production rate of food grains, fruits, and vegetables. The growth of the organic food industry in the region that largely deploys various kinds of pesticides that are regulated by FDA rules has impacted the positive growth of the packaging market.

Cans are widely used for liquid-based agrochemicals, which include a variety of fertilizers and pesticides. Furthermore, spray cans are used for packaging agrochemicals in smaller quantities. During the forecast period, tightly sealed cans that are leakage-proof are expected to gain traction.

plastic-based containers have witnessed a significant increase in demand due to the reduced weight of the material. The lightweight contributes to reduced logistics costs for companies, thus enhancing their adoption. Furthermore, aligned with the prevalent trend of sustainable packaging formats, plastic-based containers and cans used for packaging agrochemicals are expected to be focused on high PCR content.

Competitive Landscape

The North America Agricultural Chemical Packaging Market is moderately competitive, with a considerable number of regional and global players. The innovation drives the market in the product offerings, and vendors are investing in biodegradable packaging solutions.
