Biopesticides Market Trends



  • Growing Awareness About Environmental Safety Fuels the Market Growth


Growing pests and diseases without harming the environment is made possible by biopesticides, which give growers useful tools on both fronts. Both their active and inert components are generally regarded as safe. In addition to the microbial content, carrier media for biopesticide formulations include a variety of organic components, such as animal broth, organic ingredients, or organic waste products. The media is made of a biodegradable substance. Because they don't harm the environment, biopesticides contribute to the agroecosystem's stability and sustainability.


Pesticides have negative effects on the environment in addition to those on people. There have been numerous instances of harmful pesticides contaminating freshwater used for agriculture around the world, seriously harming the freshwater's flora and fauna. As a result, many environmental organisations have opposed pesticides, including the Environmental Protection Agency. In a recent study, for instance, scientists from the Public Health Institute, the California Department of Health Services, and the UC Berkeley School of Public Health discovered a six-fold increase in the risk factors for autism spectrum disorders  (ASD) in children of mothers who had been exposed to organochlorine pesticides. The Biopesticides market revenue is growing as a result of all these factors.


Biopesticides are less harmful to the environment and human health because they contain natural organisms or products. In recent years, biopesticides have gained attention in pest management and have long been touted as potential substitutes for synthetic pesticides. Although the use of biopesticides is rising by almost 10% annually on a scale, if these pesticides are to significantly replace chemical pesticides and lessen the current overdependence on them, the market CAGR for  market must expand further in the future.


Additionally, according to Surveys, organic farming is practised in 181 nations, and as of the end of 2017, 69.8 million hectares were managed organically, a 20 percent increase over 2016's 11.7 million hectares and the largest increase ever recorded. The report also discovered that sales of organic food and drink increased from USD 81.6 in 2015 to USD 97 billion in 2017. Therefore, the need for biological pesticides increases along with the demand for organic food and farming on a scale, driving the growth of the biopesticides market as a whole.


Biopesticides Market Segment Insights


Biopesticides Type Insights


The Biopesticides market segmentation, based on Type, includes Bioherbicide, Bioinsecticide, and Bio Fungicide. The Bioinsecticide segment held the majority share in 2022 in respect to the Biopesticides market revenue. Growing pest resistance and a rise in agricultural production have led to a greater use of bioinsecticides. There is agricultural loss because many insect pests are known to harm plant growth as well as crops after harvest or while they are in storage. Insect pest infestation also reduces the marketability of the crops. Regulatory restrictions and the phase-out of vital active ingredients are driving the need for alternative pest control methods. Bioinsecticides that do not harm bugs' natural enemies, pollute the environment, or leave residues in products now account for the majority of the market.


Biopesticides Form Insights


The Biopesticides market segmentation, based on Form, includes Liquid and Dry. The Liquid segment dominated the market in 2022. Liquid formulation offers better field performance than dry formulation with fewer chances of nozzle blockage. The segment's easy applicability and consistent application may also support the segment share over the anticipated duration. The demand for liquid formulation is rising as a result of its advantageous properties, including a decreased risk of nozzle obstruction and the capacity to provide superior field performance. Microbial cultures are used to create liquid biopesticide formulations that have better stability, adhesion, and dispersal qualities. A liquid composition can contain any mixture of water, oil, polymer, or any two of these. This is likely to drive market growth over the course of the forecast period.

Biopesticides Application Insights


The Biopesticides market data has been bifurcated by Application into Soil, Foliar, and Seeds. The soil application segment held largest market share in 2022, as it offers the most potential for long-term pest control. Soil-applied biopesticides can remain active in the soil for several weeks or months, providing continuous protection against soil-borne pests and diseases.


 Biopesticides Crop Insights


The Biopesticides market data has been bifurcated by Crop into Grain And Cereal, Oilseeds, Fruits, and Vegetables. The vegetable segment held largest market share in 2022, as vegetables are some of the most intensively cultivated crops worldwide and are often more susceptible to pests and diseases than other crops. Biopesticides can provide effective and sustainable pest control solutions for vegetable growers, while also reducing the risk of residues in the final product.


Biopesticides Regional Insights


By Region, the study provides the market insights into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. The market is dominated by North America. The increased interest in environmentally friendly agricultural methods and the loss of many conventional products due to reregistration and/or performance issues are two factors that are driving the demand for biopesticides in North America. Today, more than 60 businesses in the United States alone are engaged in the development and/or marketing of biopesticide products. The demand for biopesticides has also increased as a result of product development. Given the rising domestic and international demand, the North American markets for bioinsecticides and bioherbicides are expected to expand at an astounding rate in the upcoming years.  


In the present, there are more and better biological active ingredients and goods that can compete with and support traditional chemical pesticides. Over 420 biopesticides were registered in the US. 2019 saw the registration of nearly 13 active PIP ingredients for corn, 9 for cotton, and 5 for soybean. For the majority of the pests in North America, organisations like the Biological Products Industry Alliance (BPIA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and many others are developing biopesticides.


With its strong R&D, registration, and advancement of biopesticides as inherently risk-reduced pesticides, Canada is another potential market for them and their regulation. In Canada, there are currently more than 200 registered biopesticide products, with microbial being the most prevalent class. The majority of the North American biopesticides market is made up of biofungicides and bioinsecticides.


Further, the major countries studied in the market report are: The U.S, Canada, Germany, France, UK, Italy, Spain, China, Japan, India, Australia, South Korea, and Brazil.
