Key Market Trends
Increasing Organic Farming

Organic farming represents a unique, fast-growing segment of the food industry. As is the case for any emerging technology approach, various factors alternately drive and inhibit the growth of biopesticides. The area under organic farming is rapidly growing across the globe. According to FiBL statistics, the area under organic cultivation across the globe was 57.8 million hectares in 2016, which has increased by 19.2% and reached 71.5 million hectares in 2018. Being less harmful than synthetic pesticides, microbial pesticides typically affect only the target pest and other organisms closely related to it, as against broad-spectrum conventional pesticides, which can be harmful to other organisms, such as birds, insects and mammals. Ease of handling attributes like low-to-no re-entry intervals and post-harvest intervals also drive adoption of biopesticides, mainly by serving as a stark alternative to existing synthetic options and restrictions over their usage. Similarly, innovations in the area of biological control products, coupled with a growing consumer awareness about the negative impact of synthetic pesticides, are expected to boost the adoption rate of biological controls in the near future.

North America dominates the market as of 2019, with around 37% share of the biological control market. In North America, the United States holds the largest market with around half of the North American market, owing to the plenty of available arable lands. Rising concerns over organic labeled products and awareness of microbial pesticides efficiency have driven the market in North America. United States with its highly evolved agricultural sector, has been adopting to the natural and organic way of farming lately. Therefore, the biological control product consumption is the growing trend there. The increasing cost of chemical inputs, their adverse effect on soil mass and environment and the increasing awareness regarding balanced plant nutrition are the major factors driving the market demand in the country. Demand for biological control products in Canada is largely driven by conventional agriculture, recent changes to municipal and provincial laws governing cosmetic use of pesticides, and legislation and ensuing promotion for lower risk pest control products. The rise in cost of pesticides, which also has in turn led to high usage of biological control products.
