Biopesticides Market by Product (Bioherbicides, Bioinsecticides), by Type (Biochemical, Microbial), by Formulation (Dry, Liquid), by Mode of Application, by Crop Type, by Region (North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa, South America) – Global Forecast (2020 to 2027)

Biopesticides Market Size, Share, Trends, Growth, Analysis, Research


The Global Biopesticides Market is projected to reach a value of over USD 13.5 billion exhibiting a CAGR of around 14% by the end of 2027.

Biopesticides are derived naturally from animals, plants, bacteria, and certain minerals. They tend to pose fewer risks than conventional chemicals and can be effective in small quantities. They break down more quickly thus creating less pollution.

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, as of April 2016, there are 299 registered biopesticide active ingredients and 1,401 active biopesticide product registrations.


Market Driver:

  • Benefits Associated with the Use of Biopesticides

Biopesticides offer a wide range of benefits over chemical pesticides. These pesticides are usually inherently less toxic than conventional pesticides. They are often effective in extremely small quantities and decompose quickly, thus resulting in lower exposures and pollution. Unlike chemical pesticides which affect non-targeted organisms such as birds, insects & mammals, biopesticides affect only target pest. Additionally, biopesticides are biodegradable and can be cost-effective as well.

Moreover, consumer preference towards the organically grown food items on account of the efforts to live a healthy life is expected to propel the demand for biopesticides during the review period.

All such benefits offered by the use of biopesticides is a major driver of the global biopesticides market.

  • Use of Biopesticides in Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

Biopesticides are used as an important component of IPM, which is an approach to crop production and protection that combines different management strategies and practices to grow healthy crops and minimize the use of pesticides. With low toxicity, biopesticides are compatible with the use of classical biological control agents such as predatory mites and lady beetles. IPM programs include rotation of biopesticides with conventional chemical pesticides, which can reduce reliance on single chemistries and delay the development of resistance within pest populations.

Therefore, increasing the use of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) systems for crop production is expected to fuel the product demand.

Market Restraint:

  • Short Product Lifecycle of Biopesticides

Biopesticides are exposed to detrimental environmental conditions when applied in the field, including sunlight (UV), fluctuating moisture conditions, plant physiological and biochemical responses and competition by microorganisms already present on the leaf surface. These conditions may lead to shorter persistence of the biopesticides.

Improper storage conditions result in deterioration of biopesticides such as caking of powders, sedimentation or gelling of liquids and discoloration through oxidation.
