Agricultural Pheromones Market Trends




  • Increasing adoption of integrated pest management practices is driving the market growth




IPM practises emphasise long-term pest avoidance along with cultural and biological treatments, habitat modification, the adoption of resistant cultivars, and other methods. Agriculture pheromones and IPM work together to provide protection from pests while posing the fewest dangers. This guarantees both cost-cutting and profit maximisation. The best strategy is to mass trap the pests and destroy them selectively while posing no threat to the environment or human health. To effectively catch moths and fruit flies and stop them from harming fruit and vegetable crops, many farmers employ pheromone traps like tube traps and board traps. Additionally, governments from many nations support pheromones to lessen the effects of harmful chemicals. For instance, the Indian Ministry of Agriculture & Farmers Welfare is encouraging IPM among farmers by providing them with training and planning a number of Human Resource Development (HRD) programmes, which is anticipated to accelerate the expansion of the global market.


Insecticides are heavily used in the current agricultural system to guarantee pest eradication and high yield. These xenobiotics, however, negatively affect the ecosystem, parasites, helpful natural predators, and human health. Thus, the introduction of alternative crop protection strategies has been prompted by growing knowledge of the negative consequences of pesticides. Many growers of horticulture use sex pheromones and attractants to efficiently control pests and insects that harm their crops. The industry's considerable research and development efforts to increase the effectiveness of these goods also contribute to the market's growth. For instance, the Earlham Institute in England finds and confirms biosynthetic enzymes that create the Coccoidea insect superfamily's pheromones.


Insecticides and pesticides are heavily used in the current agricultural system to guarantee pest eradication and increase productivity. These insecticides, however, have a detrimental effect on both the environment and human health. Therefore, the use of alternative crop protection strategies, such as insect pheromones, has expanded as a result of growing understanding of the psychological effects of pesticides. Thus, driving the Agricultural Pheromones market revenue.


Agricultural Pheromones Market Segment Insights


Agricultural Pheromones Type Insights


The Agricultural Pheromones Market segmentation, based on Type, includes sex pheromones, aggregation pheromones, and other types (alarms pheromones, host-marking pheromones, and trail pheromones). Sex pheromones segment dominated the global market in 2022. The high utilization of sex pheromones is due to their species-specific nature, the fact that they are active even when present in very minute concentrations, and the fact that they are not poisonous to humans or other animals. Lepidopteran sex pheromone use is also regarded as safe by regulatory bodies in many nations, including the California Environmental Protection Agency.


Agricultural Pheromones Function Insights


The Agricultural Pheromones Market segmentation, based on Function, includes mating disruption, detection & monitoring, and mass trapping. Mating disruption segment dominated the global market in 2022. Using sex pheromones, either female or male, to stop insects from locating one other and mating is referred to as mating disruption. Due to its capacity to lower the pest population, sexual disruption pheromones have a higher success rate. It is a widely established method for eradicating pests from woods, fruit trees, and vegetable crops.


Agricultural Pheromones Mode of Application Insights


The Agricultural Pheromones Market segmentation, based on the Mode of Application, includes dispensers, traps, and sprays. Dispensers segment dominated the Agricultural Pheromones Market in 2022. Agricultural pheromones are most commonly applied with dispensers since they are simple to use in the field, non-toxic, affordable to make, and don't lose active components. Depending on the pest pressure, it aids in the deployment of pheromones and other bioactive substances.


Agricultural Pheromones Crop Type Insights


The Agricultural Pheromones Market segmentation, based on Crop Type, includes fruits & nuts, field crops, vegetable crops, and other crop types (plantation crops, alfalfa, and ornamental crops). The fruits & nuts segment dominated the Agricultural Pheromones Market in 2022. Due to their extensive cultivation for the production of fruits, nuts, and the high demand for high-value horticultural commodities, orchard crops are the most common crop varieties. Pests including the peachtree borer, codling moth, and oriental fruit fly are more likely to affect these crops. As a result, the product is being used more frequently in the horticultural industry.
