Market Overview

The Italian biopesticides market is projected to register a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period(2020-2025). The progress of the organic industry, the rising cost of chemical pesticides, growing issues in the development of insect resistance toward these chemicals, and the increase in awareness about occupational hazards caused by chemical pesticides are the major driving factors for the biopesticides market. Increasing the cost of chemical fertilizers and push from governments for sustainable farming is enabling the farmers to adopt organic farming practices. Growing demand for food safety and quality, increasing consumer demand for organic products thus encouraging organic farming practices. Thus driving the demand for biopesticides. Some of the players profiled in this market are AGRAUXINE SA (France), Koppert Biological System, Certis Europe, Bayer crop science, BASF Novozymes biological among others.

Scope of the report

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 Italy. 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.

Key Market Trends

Increased Demand for Organically Grown Products

Growing demand for food safety and quality, increasing consumer demand for organic products thus encouraging organic farming practices. Consumers are generally willing to pay more for organic food products grown and produced in Italy. According to the Organic Trade Association, in 2017, the total market size for organic packaged food and beverages in Italy was USD 1,756.6 million, making it the 5th largest market in the world by value. In 2016, organic packaged food consumption accounted for USD 1,473.4 million which increased to USD 1,978.2 million in 2019, Also the beverage consumption increased from USD 112.2 million to USD 130.1 million during the same period. Italy is seeing an organic food boom in terms of both production and sales. The overall health and wellness trend and consumers’ growing concerns about chemicals and hormones used in food production are driving demand for organic products. This, in turn, drives the market for the biopesticide market.

Increased Sustainable Farming is Driving the Market

Italy has recognized the importance of maintaining sustainability in agricultural practices in order to overcome the challenges posed by chemical pesticides on human and animal health, biodiversity, and the balance of the overall ecosystem. As a result, the utilization of biopesticides is being accorded greater importance. According to the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture(FiBL) as of 2016, the area devoted to organic production was 11% of Italy’s agricultural area and is further expected to grow during the study period. In 2016 the organic land was 1.79 million ha which increased to 2 million ha in 2018. Italy is now implementing legislative mandates with the objective of decreasing dependence on pesticides in agriculture, to increase consumer and environmental safety.​ New products are increasingly been developed in the country. For instance, Oro Agri, was granted approval in Italy, for its orange oil-based botanical biopesticide, Prev-AM. It is an insecticide, acaricide, and fungicide for use on grapevines, olives, and citrus fruits.
