The Global Biopesticides Market was valued at USD 2790.0 million in 2017 and is expected to register a CAGR of 14.1% during the forecast period (2018-2023). Of all the regions, South America is expected to witness the fastest growth in the forecast period, recording a CAGR of 16.4%. In addition, the United States is likely to be the largest individual market over the forecast period.
While the prevalence of chemical or synthetic pesticides in crop protection is continuing, human, animal, and environmental health concerns are playing key roles in driving the growth of biopesticides. Several countries are adopting a stringent approach concerning the amount of imports, with a special focus on regulating the quantity of pesticide residues. Emerging economies in Asia-Pacific are likely to take the lead in the adoption of biopesticides.
The Major Growing Segment by Formulation – Dry Formulation
Dry formulations include carriers, such as peat, talc, clay, lignite, which are solid in nature. They are produced by adding binder, dispersant, wetting agents, etc. Biopesticides are usually formulated as: dry formulations for direct application – dusts (DP), seed dressing formulations – powders for seed dressing (DS), granules (GR), micro granules (MG), dry formulations for dilution in water – water dispersible granules (WG), and wettable powders (WP). Biological products are highly target-specific and their use is highly desirable, but acceptable formulations are very difficult to develop. The reason for this is that, apart from the required good physical properties and convenience in use, the formulated product must also keep its biological agent functional throughout storage and during application.
Easy Registration Procedure
Biopesticides tend to pose fewer risks than chemical pesticides, the EPA generally requires less data to register a biopesticide than to register a chemical pesticide. As a result, new biopesticides are often registered in less than a year, compared to an average of more than three years for chemical pesticides. Biopesticides are regulated in the European Union in the same manner as chemical pesticides. The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), a 34-country group headquartered in Paris, France, assists EU governments in quickly and thoroughly assessing biopesticide risks to humans and the environment. The registration of microbial pesticides is similar in many of the countries. The processes have evolved from the existing requirements of chemical pesticides but have been modified to take account of the biological nature of the active ingredients involved.
High Target Pest Specificity
Target pest specificity is a major concern in biological control. It influences the efficacy of a natural enemy and the risks it might have on non-target organisms. High target pest specificity means that biopesticides target only the concerned pest. A problem that emerges with this is that each biopesticide is effective only for a restricted list of pests. Bt plants favor the exposure of target insects throughout the infestation period, including pests in their most vulnerable stages of development. In another instance, the specificity of toxins of this bacterium is effective for only a limited number of species, and the development of resistance to modified plants is more specific than other insecticides. Also, though biopesticides are environmentally more friendly when compared to other synthetic pesticides, they are active only at a certain developmental stage of the target pests. High specificity also means that the farmers may require an exact identification of the pest or pathogen, and they may have to use multiple products, which in turn increases cost.
Key Developments of Global Biopesticide Market
- Apr 2018 - The Ministry of Food and Agriculture, Ghana has shifted its focus from synthetic insecticides to bio-rational products
- Jan 2018 – Biopesticides are based on naturally occurring microorganisms, plant extracts or other materials and are regulated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)'s Biopesticide Division.
