According to Reed Intelligence the Global Dithiocarbonate Fungicides Market Size will approximately grow at a CAGR of 3.4% during the forecast period.
Dithiocarbonate fungicides (DTFs) are widely used to control various fungal diseases in crops and ornamental plants. Maximum residual limits in the order of ppb-ppm are currently imposed by legislation to prevent toxicity problems associated with excessive use of DTFs. The specific analytical determination of DTFs is complicated by their low solubility in water and organic solvents. Dithiocarbonate compositions are often provided in dry form such as, for example, wettable powders, dusts, and granules and as suspension concentrates, such as aqueous flowable formulations.
Dithiocarbonate fungicides are used for inhibiting the growth and reproduction of fungi. They typically act on the enzyme aldehyde dehydrogenase, which is involved in energy production within fungal cells. By interfering with this enzyme, dithiocarbonates disrupt the normal metabolic processes of fungi, which leads to their inhibition. Some common examples of dithiocarbonate fungicides include mancozeb, maneb, zineb, and propineb. These fungicides are available in various formulations, including powders, liquids, and dusts, and can be applied through foliar sprays, seed treatments, or soil drenches.
Dithiocarbonate fungicides are known for their activity against fungal pathogens, including those causing diseases such as leaf spots, powdery mildew, blights, rusts, and fruit rots. They are stable in the environment and have very less effect on mammals.
The market is driven by Farming and Horticulture in various regions globally.
Dithiocarbonate helps in Horticulture by reducing the cost of other operations such as crop rotation and sanitation. Horticultural crops such as fruits, vegetables, ornamentals, and greenhouse crops, are susceptible to fungal diseases. Dithiocarbonate fungicides act as a protector for growers to protect their crops from fungal pathogens. It has the ability to manage diseases which helps to ensure the quality, marketability, and economic viability of horticultural production. It can also help in extending the shelf life of the products produced by horticulture. By reducing or preventing post-harvest fungal infections, these fungicides help in maintaining the quality and freshness of fruits, vegetables, and ornamental crops during storage, transportation, and market distribution.
The Healthy growth of crops is the aim of all the farmers and food producers. Dithiocarbonate Fungicide is generally considered as cost effective as the cost of other fungicides used to protect the crops from the diseases are costly and cannot be affordable by all the farmers. They also increase the efficiency by reducing all other efforts for keeping the crops healthy. These are the effective disease control solutions that fit within the budget of the farmers. This increases the demand for dithiocarbonate fungicides by the farmers and as the horticulture is increasing it is an opportunity for the market to grow in the upcoming years.
The plants are treated with Dithiooxamide Fungicides to prevent them from various fungal diseases but the adverse environmental effects caused due to this use resist the farmers from using the fungicide affects the soil and water as it potentially persists in it and this accumulation can lead to its effect on the non-target organisms. These organisms include insects, aquatic organisms and soil microorganisms to the concerns about Water contamination and the impact of the fungicide on the ecosystem have led to limitations on the use of dithiocarbonate fungicides in some regions which affects its market adversely.
The repetitive use of Dithiocarbonate Fungicides can develop fungal resistant properties. As Fungi have the ability to adapt and develop resistant mechanism against the fungicides which are used frequently. It supresses the effect of the fungicides’ farmers need to plan their rotation and integrated pest management strategies which can help to decrease the effect in controlling fungal diseases which reduces the market demand of the fungicide.

Mancozeb is a dithiocarbonate fungicide which belongs to the ethylene bisdithiocarbamate (EBDC) group. It is a mixture of maneb and zineb, which are two primary active ingredients. Mancozeb inhibits several enzymes involved in fungal metabolism. It interferes with the metabolic pathways of fungi, which disrupts their energy production and cellular processes, leading to the inhibition of fungal growth and reproduction. Mancozeb has a multi-site mode of action, i.e., it affects different target sites within the fungal cells. This reduces the risk of fungal resistance development, which is reason of choosing Mancozeb for the purpose of disease protection. It provides control against diseases such as downy mildews, early and late blights, leaf spots, powdery mildew, rusts, and fruit rots in variety of crops, including fruits, vegetables, field crops, and ornamental plants.
Thiram is a dithiocarbonate fungicide used in agriculture. Its chemical name is tetramethyl thiuram disulfide. Thiram is a sulphur-containing compound that belongs to the dithiocarbonate family of fungicides. Thiram acts as a protective fungicide and is basically used to control fungal diseases in various crops, including fruits, vegetables, cereals, ornamental plants, and turfgrass. It is effective against fungal pathogens, including those causing seed and soil-borne diseases, such as damping-off, seed rot, and root rot etc. Thiram is mainly used as a protective fungicide, which helps to prevent fungal diseases. It forms a protective coverage on the surface of seeds, seedlings, or plant parts which does not allow the fungal pathogens to enter the plant tissue. Seeds are coated or treated with Thiram-based formulations before planting to protect them from seed-borne fungal diseases and improve germination.
Propineb is a dithiocarbonate fungicide. Dithiocarbonates are a group of fungicides that work by disrupting the cellular processes of fungi. They are mostly used to control a wide range of fungal diseases in different crops. It is a contact fungicide i.e.; it has to come into contact with the fungus in order to show its effect. It does not move through the plant. Propineb is present in a variety of formulations like wettable powders, water-dispersible granules, and suspensions concentrates. It is applied as a foliar spray, but it can also be applied as a soil drench. Propineb is generally considered to be safe for use on food crops.
Zineb is a white, crystalline solid that has limited solubility in water. It is used as a fungicide to control diseases such as powdery mildew, black spot, and rust on fruits and vegetables.
