The global value market for pesticides stood at USD 58.46 billion in 2015 and is projected to reach USD XX billion by 2020, expected to register a CAGR of 5.79% between 2015 and 2020.
Pesticides constitute the largest category within the market for crop protection chemicals, with biopesticides accounting for a comparatively minute share. However, growing environmental concerns regarding the use of synthetic pesticides that are primarily produced using petrochemical or inorganic raw materials have resulted in increasing demand for eco-friendly biopesticides. In addition, several highly toxic pesticides have either been phased out or are in the process of being phased out, thereby opening new avenues for growth in demand for biopesticides. For instance, chemicals such as glyphosate (herbicide), atrazine (herbicide) and chlorpyrifos (insecticide), to name a few, remain under constant reviews and can be either gradually phased out or even banned if more eco-friendly options are made available.

Factors driving the markets for pesticides include decreasing arable land, increasing population, the requirement of improving crop yields and adoption of GM technology specifically herbicide resistant crops . On the other hand, regulatory authorities such as EPA (Environment Protection Agency) frequently come up with stringent laws related to curbing pesticide use for alleviating environmental damage and increasing consumer awareness about pesticide consumption, which is expected to be instrumental in slowing down growth in demand for synthetic pesticides.

Biopesticides, on the other hand, are manufactured with renewable resources and are free of synthetic active ingredients. Being organic, free of chemical residues and eco-friendly products, biopesticides have been witnessing faster growth in demand compared to their synthetic counterparts. Governments in several countries have come up with initiatives aimed at promoting the development and use of biopesticides because of their low toxicity, greater safety and higher effectiveness in controlling pests. However, growth in the market has also been hampered due to the entrenched pesticides market, inconsistent efficiency of biopesticides and lack of awareness among consumers about the availability of these products.

Synthetic Pesticides covered in this report are classified into Herbicides, Insecticides, Fungicides and Other Synthetic Pesticides, while categories of Biopesticides include Bioherbicides, Bioinsecticides, Biofungicides and Other Biopesticides. The report also analyzes the global market for Pesticides by application area, including Crop-Based Applications (Grains & Cereals, Oilseeds and Fruits & Vegetables) and Non-Crop-Based Applications (Turf & Ornamental Grass and Other Applications). By application area, crop-based end-uses of pesticides are likely to maintain the fastest growth in terms of volume consumed and value demand during the similar period, and retain the leading raking in terms of largest application area.

Major companies covered in the report include American Vanguard, Arysta LifeScience, BASF SE, Bayer CropScience, BioWorks, Cheminova, Chemtura Corp, Chr Hansen, Dow AgroSciences, DuPont, FMC Corp, Isagro SpA, Ishihara Sangyo Kaisha, Makhteshim Agan, Marrone Bio Innovations, Monsanto, Natural Industries, Novozymes A/S, Nufarm Ltd, Sumitomo Chemical, Syngenta AG and Valent Biosciences.
