Market Overview

The biopesticides market in North America is witnessed to grow at a CAGR of 13.8% over the projected period (2020-2025). The increasing support and encouragement of the government and implementation of the IPM (Integrated Pest and Management) programs are driving the North America Biopesticides Market growth in the region. Further, the increasing importance of organic farming and the consumption of organic products are the factors propelling the market growth in the region. The US is the largest consumer of the biopesticides market as in the United State, the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) is responsible for encouraging the growth, development, and functioning of biopesticides.

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, bio fungicide, and others. The report presents a wide-ranging analysis of market share, size, and volume of the biopesticide market in North America. 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

United States as Major Biopesticide Market in North America

The United States forms the largest biopesticides market in North America, and Canadian demand is likely to register faster growth over the 2020-2025 period. Crop-based applications account for the largest share of biopesticides in the region because the need for organic products and the decreasing efficacy of synthetic pesticides are contributing to the market growth. The country has the world’s largest organic food market. In 2018, the sales of organic food reached USD 45.8 billion, an increase of 5.8% as per the Organic Industry Survey by the Organic Trade Association. This large organic market inflates the consumption of biopesticides. In the US, vegetable, cereal, and oilseed production consume more than half of the biopesticides. The US is the biggest user of biopesticides in the region, followed by Mexico and, then, Canada, where there is less prevalence of pests. The growth of the organic market will boost the biopesticides market during the forecast period.

Easy Registration Procedure

Given that biopesticides tend to pose fewer risks than chemical pesticides, the EPA generally requires fewer 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. To promote the use of biopesticides, North America has simplified the requirement for the registration of biopesticides. For instance, In North America, The United States leads the way with the most streamlined biopesticide regulations. The manufacturers are encouraged to register their bio-pesticides products with the appropriate regulatory body. Harmonization with Canada has had little success.
