Growing consumer awareness, rising demand for organic food along with favorable government regulations for organic products are the key factors driving the biopesticides market growth. Harmful environmental effects of chemical pesticides including surface & ground water pollution, soil & air contamination, adverse effects on non-target organisms will enhance the product demand.
Inclination towards sustainable farming practices to improve crop yield will propel the biopesticides market. Moreover, presence of beneficial microorganisms that are less vulnerable to genetic variations will enhance the crop yield. Technological advancement in the farming practices with adoption of innovative products will trigger the demand.
Increasing population along with reducing arable land globally are the key factors fueling the biopesticides market growth. Strong regulatory compliance for organic pesticides along with high efficiency are projected to fuel the product demand. High availability of the chemical pesticides with superior effectiveness and quick result properties are the major restraints of the biopesticides market.
Foliar spray holds more than 75% of the overall industry share in 2016. Increasing foliar spray adoption among the farmers due to its easy handling properties will stimulate the biopesticides market growth. Effective ingredient application as compared to the other counterparts will support the industry growth.
Fruits & vegetables accounted for around 70% of the total industry revenue. Increasing product benefits including enhanced yield, low disease occurrences and improved crop quality will enhance the product scope for fruits & vegetables. Development in the agricultural practices to provide better color, and increased sugar content in fruits & vegetables is expected to encourage the industry growth.
Liquid formulations market will witness gains over 6.2% up to 2024 owing to increased shelf life of the product. It contains inert ingredients including stickers, coloring agents, stabilizers, surfactants, antifreeze compounds and additional nutrients. The product can be easily diluted in water using emulsions, suspension, oil dispersions and suspo-emulsions.
