The global bioherbicides market was worth US$ 1,428.1 Million in 2018. Herbicides are a type of pesticides used for killing unwanted plants, also known as weeds, which consume water, sunlight, nutrients and space meant for crops. In recent years, farmers have started using bioherbicides which are bio-based weed control agents made from microbes and certain types of insects. They are environment-friendly and incur a lesser cost than conventional herbicides. Other than this, bioherbicides do not have a negative effect on crops or human health. With the emerging trend of organic farming, bioherbicides are gaining immense popularity across the globe.
Global Bioherbicides Market Drivers:
Over the past few years, the sales of synthetic herbicides have witnessed a decline as they have been shown to harm the beneficial flora in the soil. These chemicals have also been linked to an increased risk of cancer, birth defects and respiratory problems. In line with this, the governments of several nations have introduced strict regulations and awareness programs to encourage organic farming. This has led to a rise in the overall production of bioherbicides across the globe. Moreover, advances in genetic engineering have enabled the development of new-age bioherbicides which act against weeds in a more effective way. Apart from this, the rapid expansion of the food and beverage sector has also contributed to the demand for better-quality bioherbicides. Looking forward, the market value is expected to reach US$ 2,895.2 Million by 2024, expanding at a CAGR of 12.5% during 2019-2024.
