Insights on the Worldwide Biological Control Industry to 2025 - Featuring Corteva Agriscience, UPL & Syngenta Among Others -

DUBLIN--()--The "Biological Control Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2020 - 2025)" report has been added to's offering.

The Global Biological Control Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 14.7% during the forecast period (2020 - 2025).

Increasing area under organic cultivation, less stringent regulations, increasing need for food security are the few major market drivers that is boosting the sale of biologicals. However, the less shelf life of the product and low awareness among the farmers is likely to refrain the market growth. Microbials holds the largest share in the market accounting for around 65.0% in 2019, microbials is projected to grow at a faster rate due to the increasing use of microbials in various applications such as seed treatment, on-field, and post-harvest applications.

Owing to the faster adoption rate of biological controls by North American and European farmers makes both region major markets for biological controls in 2019. The global biological control market is expected to be the fragmented market during the study period due to the easy product registration and low capital investment which makes it easy for a new entrant to enter the market.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Organic Farming

Organic farming represents a unique, fast-growing segment of the food industry. As is the case for any emerging technology approach, various factors alternately drive and inhibit the growth of biopesticides. The area under organic farming is rapidly growing across the globe. According to FiBL statistics, the area under organic cultivation across the globe was 57.8 million hectares in 2016, which has increased by 19.2% and reached 71.5 million hectares in 2018. Being less harmful than synthetic pesticides, microbial pesticides typically affect only the target pest and other organisms closely related to it, as against broad-spectrum conventional pesticides, which can be harmful to other organisms, such as birds, insects and mammals.

North America Dominates the Global Biological Control Market

North America dominates the market as of 2019, with around 37% share of the biological control market. In North America, the United States holds the largest market with around half of the North American market, owing to the plenty of available arable lands. Rising concerns over organic labeled products and awareness of microbial pesticides efficiency have driven the market in North America. United States with its highly evolved agricultural sector, has been adopting to the natural and organic way of farming lately. Therefore, the biological control product consumption is the growing trend there.
