Turf Protection Chemicals Market Was Valued At USD 6.19 Billion In 2022, And Is Expected To Reach USD 8.93 Billion By 2030, Exhibiting A CAGR Of 4.7% During The Forecast Period 2022-2030.
A turf is the top layer of land where grass grows. It is made up of grass and dirt where the roots grow, or it can be cut into squares. Weeds and insect infestations can cause a lot of damage to turf, so it is important to protect it from these problems. Artificial turf is a surface covering that looks like real grass. It's made from man-made fibers. On sports fields, especially ones where grass is used, you can find artificial turf. But this grass has found a place on both home lawns and in businesses.
Most of the time, these turfs are used in sports fields, especially those where grass is used. But as a modern trend, these turfs have taken their place on home lawns and in commercial settings. The best thing about fake grass is that it doesn't need to be watered or trimmed. Besides this, you should live a long time. Turf protection is a system and method that is used to provide a safe, non-slip surface and keep people and cars from damaging the grass.
- Expansion of Sports Activities
All of the sports events found cities to host them around the world. This shows that there is a growing demand to hold sporting events of different sizes, depending on the size, requirements, and goals. So, keeping turf in good shape is important for commercial sports. As the number of homes and businesses that want turf grows, so does the market for turf protection products. So, making it likely that the market will grow in the near future. The number of participants rose from 216.9 million in 2017 to 229.7 million in 2020, according to the Physical Activity Council of the United States. So, because football and golf are becoming more popular, turf protection needs are likely to grow.
For example, Germany is known for its sports, especially football, the Bundesliga League, and other games that draw big crowds to the stadiums. This is good news and will likely bring a lot of people to the stadium, which will help the market grow over the next few years.
The turf protection market is likely to benefit from the use of integrated pest management in turf. The market is likely to pick up as more people want to use bio-based protections to reduce health risks and save money.
- Increase in Consumer Demands from Sports Fields and Residential Areas and Improvement in Integrated Pest Management in Turf Industry
The market for turf protection is still growing at a fast rate. The number of golf courses and other sports fields around the world is also growing, which is a big reason for this growth. Also, the survey says that the number of people looking for apartments is higher than it has ever been. Also, around the world, more money is being put into building sports facilities. In 2022, a number of sports teams in the US will start spending money on new or updated stadiums. The National Basketball Association's (NBA) Los Angeles Clippers plan to spend USD 1.2 billion on building the facility.
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) systems are becoming more popular in the turf industry. These systems use the right control methods to keep pest damage below a set threshold level. But an IPM program should lead to a better way to use pesticides, which usually means using the right amount of pesticides. Integrated pest management involves setting a pest threshold level that fits with how the sports turf is meant to be used, keeping detailed records on-site, and thinking about different ways to get rid of pests.
- Exceptional Advantages of Turf Grass
Turf systems are good at catching and filtering water, and they are also very good at keeping nutrients in the soil. The fibrous roots of grass hold the soil together so that rain and wind can't wash it away. A healthy lawn also protects against fire damage and can stop a big fire from getting out of hand. Turf grass also controls the temperature and is much cooler than most other surfaces. It is 15 degrees cooler than concrete and 30 degrees cooler than artificial turf. The cooling effect of transpiration lowers the temperature of the air around a turf grass plant. Because of the above benefits, there is more demand for turf grass, which increases the need for chemicals that protect turf grass.Restraints/Challenge:
- Inconsistent Regulations on Synthetic Chemicals
One of the things that the U.S. and European countries have to do is follow the rules, especially when it comes to buying, storing, applying, and handling insecticides, pesticides, and fertilizers used on golf courses and sports fields. The rules about turf in Europe are stricter, and the European Union is thinking about passing a law (Proposals for a Directive on the Sustainable Use of Pesticides) that would ban the use of synthetic chemicals like insecticides and pesticides in cities. The Farm to Fork Strategy calls for a food system that is fair, healthy, and good for the environment. In order to reach this goal, the Commission has proposed new rules to reduce the use and risk of pesticides in the EU.
- Increasing Environmental Concern, Government Regulations, and Use of Artificial Turf Grass
Synthetic turf gets rid of the need for pesticides and fertilizers, which can be harmful, and cuts maintenance costs by a lot each year. So, the growing use of artificial turf grass is a big problem for the turf protection market. Chemicals used to protect grass can make people sick, dizzy, and make them throw up. Also, government rules about how to use chemicals to protect turf are slowing the growth of the market. For example, in August 2018, the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals told the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ban chlorpyrifos, which is used as a pesticide to protect turf.
- Growing Role of Wheat Protein in the Pet Industry
The market for pet food is driven by two main trends around the world. These are premiumization and humanization. Pet owners are more and more likely to treat their pets like "family members." Because of this, there is more demand for high-end pet food that is good for their health, easier to digest, and made with better ingredients. The big players, like the German Crespel & Deiters Group, are responding to this changing human trend by offering wheat protein as an ingredient that can be added to pet food.
Wheat is a grain that is used in dry dog food and biscuits. It is a good source of carbohydrates. It gives us energy for daily tasks and makes it possible for food to be broken down. Wheat is a good source of many nutrients and has many other benefits. Wheat-based products are good for making balanced pet food because they are full of starches, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and fiber.
In 2018, most of the turf protection chemicals market came from the pest protection segment. This is because more people are using chemical treatments, which involve using pesticides and insecticides with a high level of selectivity to get rid of pests in grasses on turf.
Pest control can be further broken down into chemical pesticides and natural pesticides. In Integrated Pest Management programs, most of the pesticides are made from plant and animal extracts, like canola oil and bacteria.

The market is segmented on the basis of
By Type Outlook:
In 2019, more than 35% of the turf protection market comes from the chemical segment. Chemical agents are better than biological ones because they work better and kill pests and weeds faster. Chemicals affect the most important parts of a pest's body, like its nervous system, energy production, or growth. When insects or weeds have problems with their metabolism, development, or other bodily functions, or when those functions change, they die.
By Product Outlook:
The market is split into Stress Protection, Pest Protection, and Scarification based on the product. The pest control segment has the biggest share of the market. Demand for this segment is being driven by things like the need to control pests in turfs because more pesticides are being used to protect turfs from damage, and because pests make turfs less useful or attractive.
- Stress Protection
- Pest Protection
By Mode of Application:
Based on the mode of application, foliar spray segment holds the largest share of more than 30% in the turf protection market in 2019. Foliar spraying is an effective technique of applying turf protection chemicals directly on the grass that are affected by pests and weeds. Once chemicals are sprayed onto the turf or ornamental grass, they suppress the growth of the pests and destroys their immune system. Direct contact of turf protection chemicals with pests destroys them faster and results in healthier grass as compared to seed or soil treatment.
The outbreak of coronavirus has badly impacted the turf protection market. Industries are shuttered all around the world and supply chain has been disrupted. Government imposed lockdown that has decreased the construction activities, subsequently lowering the demand of turf grasses for decoration of lawn and parks. Production of turf protection chemicals have been stopped and disruption of supply chain resulted in late deliveries.
North America was the biggest market for turf protection chemicals in 2021, and it is expected to bring in the most money over the next few years as well. The market for turf protection chemicals in the region is driven in large part by the growing popularity and acceptance of synthetic sports pitches for indoor and outdoor sports, as well as their increased use in landscaping. As sports facilities have been built up in North America, the need for chemicals to protect turf has grown. Chemicals are often used to protect turf in sports that were originally played on grass or are usually played on grass. In the past few years, it has also been used in commercial settings and on lawns at homes. In North America, the value of all the artificial turf systems installed in 2020 was about $2.7 billion.
The turf protection chemicals market in the region is also growing because there are more residential and commercial buildings with high-end features like landscaping and rooftop gardens. Artificial turf is a great choice for commercial uses like landscaping because it is long-lasting and can be used in any weather. This increases the demand for chemicals that protect turf. Also, in North America, Dow Inc., Matrix Turf, and Tarkett control most of the market for chemicals that protect turf. The new products that these companies are making are giving the market in this area many chances to grow. Turf protection chemicals are used a lot in sports that involve contact, sports that don't involve contact, leisure activities, and landscaping. Several companies have also put more money into research and development to make better products.
Large residential areas with lots of play areas, public parks, and a large number of golf courses show how big the market is in this area. In this area, the United States is the biggest market for chemicals used on lawns and gardens, followed by Canada. Mexico is still young because of the bad weather. But it is expected to grow a lot because the south is much warmer than the north. In 2021, BASF will launch an insecticide called Alucion 35 WG that will only be used on golf courses. This new dual-active, non-restrictive product is a highly effective way for golf course managers to get rid of a wide range of surface-feeding insects. Pests like ants, chinch bugs, weeds, and annual bluegrass weevils can be killed by insecticides.
