COVID-19 Outbreak 

Under the COVID-19 scenario, the demand for the agro dyes and pigments market has plummeted as the economic activities decreased. The exploratory projects have been halted as the challenges in the supply chain led to manufacturing delays and increased the cost of operation. Farmers and the producer of the agricultural goods see the agro dyes and pigments as non-essential to carry out the usual farming business. As the revival initiated under the unlock scenarios, the demand for fresh crops went up which increased the occupancy rate of the farm. This is expected to route the market back to normalcy as the farmers would be requiring demarketing products for efficient farming with limited resources.  

Growing awareness about modern farming products

As per the techniques of modern farming, the usage of modern products is witnessing an increase in crop yield. The farmers are getting educated about the best and the right methods of farming. The initiatives by governments, self-help groups, and other volunteer organizations tend to collaborate with agro dyes and pigments, fertilizers, and pesticides firms to make them understand the products. Moreover, they subsidize the rates for retail farmers to increase their usage. The dyes are optimal for Seed treatment, Crop protection, and Crop fertilization. The dyes producer are also getting advanced and have started to undertake operations from organic waste products which makes it more sustainable and optimal from both customer's and producers' perspective. For instance, In India, National Mission for Sustainable Agriculture been working on environment-friendly technology, modern equipment integrated farming techniques, etc. Paramparagat Krishi Yojana is focusing on organics farming and techniques to boost the production of organic farming.

An increase in demand adds to farmers efficiency with limited resources

With the increase in the demand for crop production, farmers tend to increase the size of the land. Increasing the land size is capital intensive which may be taken with a trade-off with equipment which may leave the farmers with limited funds. Material such as agro coatings and pigments is a value for money option as it enables farmers to monitor regularly the areas left untreated and what pesticides and agriculture products been applied to the fields. This also enables farmers with a large workforce to reduce the duplicity of the work and divide the work amongst them. For instance, Vipul Dyes and Chem offers a sustainable range of products in liquid and granular forms which is easy to use at competitive prices.

Challenges in the Agriculture Dyes and Pigments Industry

The Agricultural dying and pigmentation products have been in the market now as the technology emerges but the farmers from rural areas used to practice traditional techniques developed from the natural resources but in an unstructured manner. The application of specialized products for demarketing crop protection and other instruments might be limited to modern farming and will potentially lose on to the main agricultural markets such as India as for the farmers such things are costly which aims to promote capitalism. The alternatives available to this are easy and available to the farmers and they can use and modify its usage as per the requirements. However, as the environment changes, the efficiency of the traditional products is expected to be discounted as it has limitations as it does not specifies the boundaries and tends to be mixed and matched with soil upon the wind, water so needs to be reapplied often.
