Fipronil is a broad spectrum antibody used as an insecticide to control pests on a wide range of field and horticultural crops. The insecticide is used for pests such as moths, butterflies, grasshoppers, locusts, and beetles. Fipronil is also known as fluocyanobenpyrazole or termidor. Fipronil is an insecticide that belongs to the phenyl-pyrazole chemical group. It disrupts the central nervous system of insects by blocking glutamate-gated chloride channels. This causes overexcitement of the nerves and muscles of contaminated insects. The insecticide is effective for a large number of pests. Fipronil is used as an active ingredient in flea control products for pets and home roach traps. It is employed in field pest control for corn fields, golf courses, and commercial turf. Fipronil offers specificity in its effects on insects due to its greater affinity to the GABA receptors in insects.
Read Report Overview @
It is classified as a WHO class-II moderately hazardous pesticide and has moderate to severe toxicity through the oral and inhalation routes in rats. Indications of critical toxicity via ingestion include abdominal pain, dizziness, agitation, sweating, nausea, vomiting, headache, and weakness. Fipronil is highly toxic to fish and aquatic invertebrates. It is less soluble in water and may reduce the potential hazard to aquatic wildlife. Clinical signs of exposure to fipronil are commonly reversible and can be resolved spontaneously. Obsrevations are ongoing regarding Fipronil’s possible off-target harm to humans or ecosystems and the monitoring of resistance development.
Global Fipronil Market: Segmentation
The global fipronil market can be segmented based on type, application, and region. In terms of type, the fipronil market can be classified into liquid and gel. The liquid fipronil segment is projected to expand at a substantial pace during the forecast period. Liquid fipronil sprayers are used in agriculture and domestic applications to harm insects or rats. This is likely to boost demand for liquid fipronil in the next few years. Expansion in the food and beverage industry is driving demand for fipronil gels to destroy cockroaches, small flies, house mice, and rats. This is anticipated to propel the gels segment of the market during the forecast period.
In terms of application, the fipronil market can be classified into agrochemical, chemical, food & beverages, and others. Increase in demand for modern agricultural techniques over commercial agricultural techniques is expected to drive demand for agrochemicals. This, in turn, is anticipated to boost demand for the fipronil market during the forecast period.
Global Fipronil Market: Regional Outlook
In terms of region, the fipronil market can be segmented into Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, North America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is expected to remain a leading region of the global fipronil market during the forecast period. Increase in population is projected to boost demand for food in prominent countries such as India and China. Moreover, Asia Pacific is focusing on modern agricultural techniques. This is estimated to drive demand for agrochemicals. This, in turn, is expected to boost the fipronil market during the forecast period. The fipronil market in South Africa is expected expand at a sluggish rate compared to that in other countries, due to lack of technological advancements and infertile land for agriculture. This is anticipated to hamper the fipronil market in Middle East & Africa during the forecast period.
