Global Biopesticides Market to Reach US$ 12.1 Billion by 2027, Bolstered by Adoption of Organic Farming Practices

April 05, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Biopesticides Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global biopesticides market size reached a value of US$ 5.4 Billion in 2021. Biopesticides are biochemical pesticides derived from naturally occurring substances, such as bacteria, plants, animals, and microbes. They are used to control various pests and disease-carrying organisms, including mice, ticks, and rats. There are majorly three forms of biopesticides, namely bioherbicides, bioinsecticides, and biofungicides. These pesticides manipulate the growth of pests, insects, and weeds in crops by getting directly sprayed in the soil through a foliar spray. As compared to conventional pesticides, they are inherently less toxic as they are decomposable in nature, offer long-term pest control, and are highly effective even when applied in small quantities.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Biopesticides Market Trends:

The widespread adoption of organic farming practices, in confluence with significant growth in the agriculture industry, represents one of the key factors driving the global biopesticides market growth. In line with this, increasing concerns regarding soil health and agriculture sustainability are acting as another major growth-inducing factor. There is rising awareness regarding the detrimental effects of chemical pesticide application on the soil and the produced crops, which, in turn, is catalyzing the utilization of biopesticides across the globe. This, along with shifting consumer preference toward organic food products, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Other factors, such as the implementation of stringent policies to promote sustainable farming and innovations in the field of agricultural sciences, are driving the market toward growth further. Looking forward, the market value is expected to exceed US$ 12.1 Billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 14.5% during 2022-2027.
