Alpha-cypermethrin Market: Introduction
Alpha-cypermethrin is a synthetic compound that belongs to the pyrethroid group of
chemicals. It is a racemic mixture of two isomers of cypermethrin. Alpha-cypermethrin
consists of two isomers from the eight isomers present in cypermethrin. These two
isomers are the most biologically active enantiomer pair. Alpha-cypermethrin is used
as an active ingredient in preparation of insecticides. It is a non-systemic contact and
residual insecticide with two to three times greater activity than regular cypermethrin.
It affects a wide range of insects, effectively controlling chewing and sucking insects.
It is also used in preparation of veterinary medicine. Alpha-cypermethrin is applied
topically in animal husbandry. It is applied as a spray or pour-on to cattle and sheep.
About 150 mg of alpha-cypermethrin is recommended for usage per animal and 8 mg
to 10 mg per poultry bird. Alpha-cypermethrin is also known as type II synthetic
pyrethroid, which can cause long-lasting prolongation. This long-lasting prolongation
results in long-lasting chain of repetitive firing.

Alpha-cypermethrin Market: Segmentation
Based on application, the alpha-cypermethrin market can be segmented into
agrochemicals, veterinary medicine, and others. Agrochemicals was the major
application segment of the alpha-cypermethrin market in 2017. It is likely to remain
the dominant segment during the forecast period. Alpha-cypermethrin is used as
insecticides in agrochemicals. It is used on a wide range of crops. Rise in demand for
food owing to the increase in population has augmented the need for agrochemicals.
This is the key factor estimated to drive the demand for alpha-cypermethrin during
the forecast period. The agrochemicals segment is also anticipated to expand at a
significant pace betw
