Plant Growth Regulator Market, 2017-2021: Industry Will Reach 6.4 billion


Plant growth regulators are chemicals produced by a plant which is natural or synthetic substance active at low concentration. Plant growth regulators are produced naturally to regulate and control the plant growth. Plant growth regulators are used to enhance and control the natural plant growth and are key measures to ensure food production. The naturally occurring endogenous substances are also called as plant hormones. Plant growth regulators help to inhibit, modify and promote growth. If plant hormones are misused; crops would cultivate excessively fast which would unfavorably affect the fruit quality.

According to the report, the global plant growth regulators market was valued at approximately USD 3.5 billion in 2014 and is expected to reach approximately USD 6.4 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of around 8.2% between 2015 and 2020.
