Need To Prevent Outbreak of Diseases among Meat Producing Animals to Fuel Adoption of Agricultural Disinfectants

According to the lead author of this report, the growing demand for meat and meat products across the world is one of the key factors behind the growing demand for agricultural disinfectants. Maintaining the health of meat producing animals such as cattle and poultry has gained immense popularity, and this has led to the growth of the cleaning and disinfecting livestock farm products in order to prevent outbreak of diseases among animals. Thus, there has been an increase in the focus on routine and regular cleanliness among farmers, which is fuelling the use of effective agricultural disinfectants. 

Improper Use of Agricultural Disinfectants Result In High Wastage Rate and Discourage Future Adoption

One of the key factors restraining the growth of the agricultural disinfectant market is the low awareness among farmers across under developed nations. In addition to this, lack of sufficient knowledge regarding the proper use of disinfectants has also resulted in lower adoption rates. Improper use of disinfectants has resulted in high wastage rate which has also discouraged farmers from using agricultural disinfectants. The possible harmful effects of using disinfectants are also one of the reasons why farmers refrain from using agricultural disinfectants. On a bright note however, the market for agricultural disinfectants is receiving an impetus from Asia Pacific which holds vast untapped potential especially in countries such as India and China, wherein players have been focusing of late. The rise in disposable income and growing demand for meat products in Asia Pacific is anticipated to create growth opportunities for agricultural disinfectant market.
