Simply the pest: High barriers to entry will weed out competition, keeping industry profit strong

Over the past five years, operators in the Pesticide Manufacturing industry have experienced growth in revenue despite recurring volatility due to changes in the regulatory environment, declines in the exchange rate and a declining number of farms. Moreover, industry profit margins have trended upward due to limited competition and high barriers to entry in the industry. Moving forward, industry operators are expected to continue growing, albeit at a slightly slower rate, as regulations are expected to continue to become more stringent. In addition, sustained demand from crop production and a projected increase in demand for more environmentally friendly products are also expected to boost industry more.
