    Five-and ten-year business outlook

  • Scope
  • The 2011 U.S. crop protection market experienced dramatic price decreases in addition to the high inventory levels at the distributor level causing unfamiliar market situations for all levels of the supply chain. This report captures these market situations and trends that include:

    • Seed treatments and coatings
    • Generic manufacturers and products
    • Branding strategies
    • Distribution structure
    • Retailer sales strategies
    • Biotech seed traits perspective

  • Market Overview
  • Today’s market turbulence in the crop protection industry began fifteen years ago with the convergence of biotech crops, major product patent expirations, and acceptance of generic products at a time when the industry was maturing with saturated markets. Rather than follow traditional mature market curves, the U.S. crop protection industry is becoming more diverse and dynamic as each of these strategic drivers creates its own footprint within the industry. Traditional crop protection chemicals remain reliable indicators of overall industry direction, but newer crop protection components, i.e. generics, seed treatments or biologicals, must be factored into any analysis of current or future industry performance.

  • Methodology
  • Kline is unmatched in its ability to gather hard-to-get market and competitive intelligence with a high degree of confidence. Kline’s market analysis approach places the main emphasis on primary research techniques to insure the foundation of business intelligence is accurate, current, and reliable.

    Kline will conduct interviews with leading distributors, retailers, industry experts, consultants, and other knowledgeable people in the process of putting together this report. Interviews will be conducted by Kline professionals. Primary research will represent the bulk of our research efforts, supported by secondary research drawn from the various available sources.
