Growing demand for organic food globally is catalyzing the biopesticides market.

The global organic food market continues to grow. According to the IFOAM - Organics International, in 2019, 3.1 million organic producers were reported worldwide. A total of 72.3 million hectares of farmland was organically managed at the end of 2019. This represents a growth of 1.6% or 1.1 million hectares compared to 2018. In addition, the sales of organic products have consistently increased over the last decades. The demand for organic fruits, vegetables, and other organic food products is growing rapidly due to an increase in the number of health-conscious people, surge in the preference for healthier food products, and a rise in awareness about the health risks posed by the use of chemical pesticides. This is encouraging farmers worldwide to produce crops using organic methods. Therefore, they are shifting from harmful chemical-dependent conventional agriculture to sustainable and greener farm practices. Biopesticides are used in the organic farms as they have no side effects on beneficial plants and human health.

High costs associated with the development of substitute products.

Synthetic crop protection products act as substitute to biopesticide and are expensive to develop. Extensive R&D activities and strict regulatory approvals are required in the manufacturing process of a typical synthetic product as substitute to biopesticides, which are relatively less expensive and have quick development processes. This has led to intense competition for the major players in the biopesticides market. The lengthy timeline for the introduction of chemical pesticides has a clear indication that key companies are moving toward alternative sustainable solutions to control pests. Thus, the demand for biopesticides is projected to increase during the study period.

Advancements in microbial research.

Major players such as Bayer AG are making advancements in microbial and RNA interference (RNAi) technology, allowing farmers to adopt better alternatives for applying biological products. Extensive research undertaken by these major players in the crop protection industry has encouraged the effective use of biological signals to trigger RNAi-specific genes, which would help in disease and pest resistance, as well as increased yield and quality. These advancements in microbial research can create multiple opportunities in the form of breakthroughs for players in the market.

Recent strategic developments in biopesticides market
