China Biopesticides Market Analysis

The Chinese biopesticides market is projected to register a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period (2020-2025). The swelling cost of chemical inputs, their adverse effect on soil health and environment, and the increasing awareness regarding balanced plant nutrition are the major factors driving the market demand in the country. The country is adopting the use of microbial for seed treatments, to strengthen crop productivity at an early stage.​ In response to consumers’ demands for healthy food products with minimal environmental impacts, growers are looking for more efficient ways to minimize the negative environmental impact. This is where the biopesticides come into play. Thus driving the growth of the biopesticide market during the forecast period. The major players include Beijing Bioseen Crop Sciences Co Ltd, Beijing Coway BioWorks Biotech Co. Ltd., Bayer Cropscience AG, Zhejiang Qianjiang Biochemical Co Ltd Koppert, and FMC Corporation.

China Biopesticides Industry Segments

According to EPA, “Biopesticides are certain types of pesticides, derived from such natural materials as animals, plants, bacteria, and certain minerals.” The present study takes into consideration both microbial and organic pesticides. The market is broadly segmented into bioinsecticide, bioherbicide, biofungicide, and others. The report presents a wide-ranging analysis of market share, size, and volume of the biopesticide market in China. The corporations in the biopesticide market operate in B2B, as well as B2C, format. However, to eliminate any “double-count” error in market estimations, bulk buyers procuring these biopesticides for retail sale are, after value-addition through further processing, not considered within the market studied.

China Biopesticides Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the China Biopesticides Market according to our research experts:

Increased Demand for Organically Grown Products

Organic food products are of particular interest among the food products for a Chinese consumer with increasing awareness regarding the benefits of organic products and growing disposable income. According to the Organic Trade Association, in 2017, organic packaged food sales in China grew by 18.6% from 2016 and organic beverage sales grew by 17.1% during the same period. In 2018, the organic packaged food consumption was USD 3,265.7 million which increased to USD 3,775.4 million in 2019 and the organic beverage consumption increased from USD 49.4 million to USD 56.2 million during the same period. Rising disposable income levels and a growing consumer focus on product quality and food safety are also encouraging consumers to trade up to organic products, particularly in the wake of a number of recent food safety scandals. This, in turn, will boost the biopesticides market during the forecast period, as biopesticides are extensively used for organic crops.

Growing interest in sustainable agriculture

Chinese farmers are ditching chemical agriculture for reasons of personal health, ecological protection, and economic motives, propped up by a range of state supports. Chinese consumers are keen to sink their teeth into chemical-free food, primarily for health reasons. In response to food safety concerns and China’s ecological crisis, various levels of government in China now provide a wide range of support to the organic farm. They range from covering the cost of organic certification to finding land, funding on-farm infrastructure and organic fertilizers, to training and marketing assistance. According to the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FiBL), in 2016 the organic land in China was 2.2 million ha which increased to 3.1 million ha in 2018. In response to the growing need to meet food sufficiency and the importance of safe farming practices, the organic food industry is growing exponentially which drives the biopesticide market.
