The Markets and Markets report predicts that the global agricultural adjuvants market will reach a value of US$4,7 billion by 2026, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5,3%. These numbers are driven by growing demand for improved varieties and technologies that increase agricultural efficiency.
