The crop oil concentrates market is estimated to be valued at US$157.431 million in 2020.

Crop Oil Concentrate is a mixture of a surfactant and a superior non-phytotoxic form of agricultural spray oil that is intended for use with a variety of post-emergence herbicides, as well as defoliants, desiccants, and other pesticide applications. Adjuvants can be divided into two categories: vegetable oil concentrates, which are derived from vegetables, and crop oil concentrates (COC), which are derived from petroleum.

Due to the fact that Crop Oil Concentrate makes herbicides more effective, caution should be used when applying herbicide spray containing Crop Oil Concentrate to new varieties or highly inbred lines that have not been previously treated with spray tank adjuvants. Crop oil concentrate could make the spray mixture more effective. The market for crop oil concentrates is expanding as a result of the widespread use of herbicides.

The increased focus on Bio-pesticides is expected to propel the market growth

The market for crop oil concentrate is growing due to rising pesticide use and the need to reduce pesticide use per hectare. The market for crop oil concentrates will grow as a result of the expansion of precision farming in Europe and North America.

By Crop Type

By crop type, the crop oil concentrates market can be segmented as cereals and grains, oilseeds and pulses, and fruits and vegetables. The cereal and grains segment holds a significant share of the market as a large area of land is under cultivation of cereals.

By Concentration Type

By concentration type, the crop oil concentrates market can be segmented as less than 25%, between 15% and 25%, and greater than 25%. Crop oil concentrates with higher surfactant have a better coverage area for pesticides and also impart surfactant properties to pesticides. Also, there are no standard rules for the concentration of crop oil concentrate, therefore greater than 25% surfactant has a major market share.

By Application Type

By application type, the crop oil concentrates market can be segmented into herbicides, Insecticides, and fungicides. Herbicides hold a significant share of the market because of the increasing cultivation of herbicide-friendly crops. Fungicides also cover a broad market as fungi can affect the quality and yield of crop cultivation.

By Geography

Geographically, the crop oil concentrate market is segmented as North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific. South America holds a significant share of the market due to the increasing adaptation of biotech crops like soybean. Also, the regulatory framework in South America is not much strict.

Key Developments:

  • March 2020: To distribute Thymox Control, a thyme-oil-based biopesticide, Laboratoire M2, a technology and scientific firm with headquarters in Canada, has signed a strategic partnership agreement with Kemin Crop Technologies. The active component of thyme oil, which is used in Thymox Control, has a special formula that gives extremely effective and stabilized antibacterial power to control bacterial and fungal plant infections. Thymox Control will be distributed in the United States by Kemin Crop Technologies. Thymox Control is a pesticide that is minimal risk FIFRA 25(b) exempt and is not required to be registered with the United States Environmental Protection Agency. More than 34 states in the U.S. have registered the product and made it available for purchase.
  • July 2022: The Diesel Nut programme, which uses peanuts as a sustainable source of diesel fuel, is being developed by Texas A&M AgriLife and Chevron. Using peanut oil has a reduced carbon intensity, which measures how much energy is required to make a product and the amount of net carbon added to the environment during that process. According to Cliff Lamb, director of Texas A&M AgriLife, the partnership between AgriLife and Chevron will enable researchers to create peanuts with more oil content and those that are better suited to dryer climates. By 2030, Chevron wants to create 100,000 barrels per day of renewable fuels. The company's top objective is to do this using renewable sources with less carbon intensity.

Product Offerings:

  • Cornbelt Crop Oil Concentrate: The combination of non-ionic surfactant/emulsifier and paraffinic base oil in Cornbelt Crop Oil Concentrate offers excellent leaf penetrating and wetting capabilities. Over 90% of the paraffinic base oil it contains is unsulfonated, lowering the risk of residues harming delicate plant tissues. It breaks through the cuticle, which is a waxy covering on the surface of the leaf, allowing more herbicide to be absorbed by the plant and increasing herbicide activity. Two other advantages of employing Cornbelt Crop Oil Concentrate are increased herbicide absorption and drying time.
  • Winfield United Prime Oil:  Phytotoxic oil and a blend of non-ionic surfactants make up Prime Oil adjuvant, a premium crop oil concentration. The use of Prime Oil adjuvant improves the spray's contact activity, promotes cuticle penetration, and gives leaf surfaces more even coverage. It is compatible with a variety of fertilizers, micronutrients, pesticides, and fungicides.  A variety of insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, fertilizers, and micronutrients can be used with Prime Oil adjuvant.   It helps to increase covering uniformity and disintegrates waxy leaf cuticles for greater pesticide penetration.
