Biocontrol Agents Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2019 - 2025

Sustainable agriculture is one of the most important concern at present, considering both demographics of the world and crop productivity based on chemical control. Biocontrol agents are used to protect several varieties of crops such as pulses, cereals & grains, fruits and vegetables etc. from pests and other herbivore organisms that can damage the crops. They are used in on- field crops and conservatory to minimize diseases on fruits, flowers cereals, legumes, and grains caused either by post-harvest pathogens or foliar. However, slow response time to achieve economic level of pest suppression might be a limitation to biological pest control market.

Based on revenue, microbial biological control segment will hold the highest market share of over 60% in 2025 of the overall market. Microbial biological control agents are applied to crops to keep a check on plant pathogens that attack via different modes of action. They enhance nutrient availability and uptake, improves overall productivity and health of the crop, assists in residue and resistance management.

Fruits & vegetables segment is anticipated to grow at a decent growth rate of over 15% CAGR in 2025. Fruits and vegetables are prone to many diseases caused by pests and weeds. Public awareness about the adverse effects of pesticides on the safety of fruits & vegetables and on the environment has increased in recent years, this will propel utility of biocontrol agents during forecast timeframe.

The seed treatment application segment will capture a decent share of over to 30% of the global biocontrol agents' market in 2025. Seed treatment using biological control agents minimizes utility of agrochemicals thus, resulting in lower exposure to chemicals and lowers their impact on the environment and significant reduction in cost of production.

Europe and North America are the major regional biological control markets followed by Asia Pacific. The regional industry is characterized by the presence of many R&D firms, high capital investments and a growing demand for organic farm products. A large amount of urban population in this region is another factor behind the rising demand for crop protection technologies.
