Plant growth regulators are the chemicals that shape plant growth in many complex ways. They control such activities as differentiation and cell division, root and shoot growth, ripening and flowering. These are naturally occurring elements that regulate all development and growth of plants, also called as plant hormones. Hormones are moved around the plant in extremely low concentrations. Some plant growth regulators like cytokinins and auxins are man-made synthetic growth regulators which are applied to plants to get a myriad of changes. Several plant growth promoters such as auxins, cytokinins, ethylene, and abscisic acid are made by the tissues of the plant.
The demand for increased crop productivity and the predicted challenges related to plant survival under adverse environmental conditions have renewed the interest in research in root biology. Various physiological and genetic studies have provided ample evidence in support of the role of plant growth regulators in root development. Factors such as increasing demand for cotton with the growth of the textile industry coupled with the rise of the organic farming industry is expected to fuel the demand for plant growth regulators over the forecast period. However, growing performance of farmers towards better performing agro chemicals is expected to hamper the growth of the plant growth regulator market. Focus towards product innovation to manufacture less environmental threatening and economical plant growth regulators is anticipated to provide new opportunities to the market.
Cytokinins were the majorly consumed plant growth regulators market industry in 2012, accounting for over 40% of the global demand, and are also expected to witness the fastest growth within the forecast period. Demand for cytokinins has been on the rise owing to their extensive use in enhancing capacity of plants to endure water deficiency by protecting the nitrogen and carbon assimilation process during stress. Increasing demand for medicinal plants with the growth of the herbal medicine industry at a global level is expected to drive the demand for auxins as well. Other plant hormones such as mepiquat chloride and gibberellins are extensively used in cotton plants and seed germination, and are expected to follow a similar trend with the growth of the textile industry.
