Agrochemical companies are actively engaged in collaborations to address the rising demand for biopesticides. For example, a collaboration agreement was signed in May 2022 between Chr. Hansen Holding A/S and UPL Limited to provide ZOATIN, a novel bio-solution that efficiently supports plant absorption and usage of phosphorus, to enhance crop health and output.

Key Observation Points in Biocontrol Agents Market Report

  • The microbials category, which accounts for almost 60% of the biocontrol agents market revenue, is predicted to grow at the highest rate. This is due to the incredible capacity of microorganisms to remove pests from crops and increase the yield.
  • Furthermore, unlike conventional pesticides, which have the potential to kill other organisms, including birds, insects, and mammals, microbicides often only hurt the target pests and those creatures that are closely related to them.
  • Additionally, people are rapidly embracing the concept of organic farming. For instance, the percentage increase in organic farming area relative to the total land under organic cultivation in the U.K. rose by 34% in 2021 over the previous year.
  • Based on crop type, the cereals & grains category holds a 40% share in the market. This is partly because of the high need for cereals and grains from the increasing global population.
  • The on-field category has the biggest share of the biocontrol agents market. Spraying biocides during the crop growing period is considered the most-effective way of ensuring healthy produce, which, combined with the benefits of such organic agrochemicals, continues to drive their usage.
  • In 2021, North America contributed more than 30% of the revenue to biocontrol agent manufacturers. This is because of the huge acreage of fertile lands, growing market for organic products, and rising awareness of people of microbial pesticides.

Furthermore, the highly established agriculture industry in the U.S. has just started to transition to organic and natural farming techniques, including biopesticides. For example, a source claims that in 2021, the need for organic farming increased by almost 30% in the country.
