“The Ever-rising Demand for Organic Food to Play Crucial Role in the Product Growth

Organic farming is increasingly advocated as an ideal alternative for the conventional technique to reduce the overall impact on the environment. The promising growth trajectory of organic agriculture is expected to benefit the future growth of biopesticides with stronger demand dynamics for natural plant protection products. The strong emphasis from governments and other stakeholders on the organic and sustainable mode of farming has increased the acceptance of biopesticides.

Countries, especially with a strong agriculture base are gradually transitioning from “green-revolution” towards “ever-green revolution”. The role of agri-bio inputs will thus be crucial in driving this transformation owing to their eco-friendly, cost effective, and farmer- and consumer-friendly traits. Moreover, rising buyer’s demand for foods devoid of any synthetic pesticides is predicted to further propel the market growth.

“Phase-out of Key Chemical Active Ingredients to Support the Market Growth”

The usage of synthetic pesticides has recorded large-scale and widespread damage to the environment. Therefore, several government organizations have banned or set limitations on the use of some chemical active ingredients to avoid their adverse effect on the envionment, human, and animal health.

However, biopesticides space is characterized by several start-ups that struggle with adequate funding, appropriate infrastructure, and market penetration. The R&D activities are undertaken by these small players also fail to sense the demand dynamics of a particular geography which can further restrain the market growth.


By Type

Biofungicides to hold the Major Share of the Market”

Biofungicides held the largest share in the global biopesticides market in 2019. The increasing resistance to various chemical fungicides among fungi is expected to boost the demand for alternative efficient products such as bio fungicides. Moreover, the regulatory ban or limitation on the usage of some active ingredients for the production of chemical agri-inputs is expected to be a favorable factor for product growth.

In addition, horticultural crops grown under protected cultivation are more prone to damage by pathogenic nematodes. Increasing shifts in patterns of tillage of soil and adoption of zero or minimum tillage farm practices are leading to the enlargement of pathogenic nematodes population density in the soil. Considering the economic losses, industry stakeholders are actively exploring the opportunities to identify the biological pesticides that are effective in control the pathogenic nematodes, and the same is projected support for the strong growth of the bionematicides market.
