Insecticides Market: Drivers & opportunity

Market Driver:

  • Increasing Need for Agriculture Productivity  

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nation, the world population is expected to grow by over a third, or 2.3 billion people between 2009 to 2050. The population growth coupled with rising income in developing countries has expected to drive the global demand for food. Thus, increasing demand for food has further need to increase the crop production, either by increasing the amount of agriculture land to grow a crop or by enhancing the productivity on existing agricultural through fertilizer and irrigation and adopting new methods like precision farming. Thus, increasing the need for agriculture productivity in order to meet growing food demand across the globe has expected to drive the growth of the insecticides market during the forecasted period.

Market Opportunity:

  • Availability of Bioinsecticides as a Substitute

Bioinsecticides are a type of pesticides obtained from naturally occurring substance such as animals, plants, bacteria, and minerals that control or kill pests. Growing environmental concerns and health hazards associated with the use of synthetic insecticides has increased the demand for bioinsecticides across the globe.  Less toxic or non-toxic nature of bioinsecticides as compared to synthetic insecticides has increased its popularity. Moreover, unlike conventional insecticides which affect a broad spectrum of species, bioinsecticides provide more targeted activity towards desired insects. Furthermore, they are effective in small quantities, offering quick decomposition & lower exposure, leaving virtually no harmful residues after application. Thus, the availability of bioinsecticides as a substitute may pose a opportunity to market growth.
