$6.4 Bn Biopesticides (Bioinsecticides, Biofungicides, and Bionematicides) Market - Global Forecast to 2023 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

April 1, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 1, 2019--The “Biopesticides Market by Type (Bioinsecticides, Biofungicides, and Bionematicides), Source (Microbials, Plant Extracts, and Beneficial Insects), Mode of Application, Formulation, Crop Application, and Region - Global Forecast to 2023” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The biopesticides market is estimated at USD 3.0 billion in 2018 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 15.99%, to reach USD 6.4 billion by 2023.

The growth of the biopesticides market is driven by the advancements in integrated pest management solutions and increasing adoption of organic farming among farmers. The key drivers for market growth are the advancements in integrated pest management solutions. The continuous and extensive use of modern crop protection products to eliminate or reduce pest infestation has led to the development of resistance among pests to conventional crop protection products. This resistance can be classified into metabolic resistance, target-site resistance, penetration resistance, and behavioral resistance.

The bioinsecticides segment, by type, is estimated to account for the largest share in 2018.

Biopesticides are predominantly used in the form of bioinsecticides. Bioinsecticides include biocontrol agents - microbial and plant-based products, such as neem. Viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and mites are employed to control a variety of insects that affect both plants and animals. Although insects are attacked and affected by a large number of microorganisms, only a limited number of them have found commercial application.

The fruits & vegetables segment held the dominant market share in the biopesticides market, based on crop application.

Based on crop application, the fruits & vegetables segment is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. Fruits & vegetables have emerged as a key application area for bionematicides and have become essential in their use in high-value fruits & vegetables to enhance their export quality and reduce chemical residue levels. Grapes, citrus fruits, and bananas are the main fruit crops; while tomatoes, potatoes, bell peppers, hot peppers, cucumbers, sweet potatoes, and eggplants are the main vegetable crops wherein bionematicides are used.

High growth is projected in the Europe biopesticides market.

The European market is projected to be the fastest-growing market for the period considered for this study, due to strong potential for growth, given the large-scale production and increase scrutiny and bans on chemical pesticides in the region. In addition, biopesticides consumption ranked second in the region which is driven by the strong demand for organic food products among consumers in the European region.
