Worldwide, the pesticides industry has been witnessing a relatively steady growth, which has been primarily attributed to advancements in the Biopesticides industry. The Biopesticides industry is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 15.5% by volume and 16.82% by value terms during 2017-2022 and is estimated to value at USD 18,588 million. The volume and value markets for Biopesticides in North America are poised to post respective CAGRs of 14.4% and 16.6%.
The worldwide trend of maintaining sustainability in human, animal and environmental heath by minimizing the use of chemical pesticides is evident in the largest global market, too. The North America market for Biopesticides is largely driven by simple registration process, consumers growing preference for organic products and growing consumer awareness on the ill effects of synthetic pesticides on human health. The market however is mainly constrained by the growers low awareness on the use of bio control agents and availability of the products. Also low shelf life of products results in farmer’s frequent application of Biopesticides thus resulting in increased costs. The North America region with the introduction of NAFTA has reduced the trade tussles between the member countries. However, there is still a product price gap between the US and Canadian region; increasing cost for the Canadian and Mexico growers.
The United States forms the largest Biopesticides market in North America, and Canadian demand is likely to register faster growth over the 2017-2022 periods. Crop-based applications accounts for the largest share of Biopesticides in the region. The US is the biggest user of Biopesticides in the region with a market estimated to be worth USD 2685 million, followed by Mexico and, then, Canada, where there is less prevalence of pests. Canada which has low user base for bioinsecticides and biofungicides is seeing prospects for growth mainly due government encouragement and synthetic pesticide bans.
The report is segmented based on types which include bioherbicides, bioinsectcides, biofungicides. These find applications in crops like cereals & Grains, oilseeds, fruits and vegetables and non crop based applications like turf & ornamental grass. Grains & Cereals take up the larger share of Biopesticides use.
