DUBLIN, July 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The “Global Biopesticides Market – Forecast to 2028” report has been added to’s offering.


The global biopesticides market is poised for significant growth, with a projected value of USD 13.9 billion by 2028, reflecting a CAGR of 15.9% during the forecast period.

The market, valued at USD 6.7 billion in 2023, is driven by increasing consumer demand for food products free from pesticide residues and the adoption of sustainable farming practices.

Among the types of biopesticides, biofungicides hold the second-largest market share. With the rising popularity of organic farming and the demand for pesticide-free crops, biofungicides have gained traction.

These eco-friendly solutions effectively control fungal diseases without leaving harmful residues, aligning with integrated pest management (IPM) strategies and organic farming principles. Biofungicides derived from Trichoderma species, such as Trichoderma harzianum, not only combat diseases but also promote plant growth and enhance soil health.

Fruits and vegetables account for the largest share in the crop type segment of the biopesticides market. Consumers increasingly prefer pesticide-free and residue-free produce, driving the demand for biopesticides derived from natural sources. These biopesticides provide a safer alternative to chemical pesticides while leaving minimal residues on crops. They also have minimal impact on beneficial insects responsible for pollination and pest control, ensuring ecological balance.

The Asia Pacific region is expected to witness substantial growth in the biopesticides market during the forecast period. With its diverse range of crops and high pest pressure, the region presents a strong demand for effective pest control solutions.

Biopesticides have emerged as targeted alternatives, addressing specific pests and diseases while minimizing environmental impact. In rice cultivation, for example, biopesticides based on Bacillus thuringiensis have proven successful in controlling the rice stem borer, a major pest in the region. The increasing adoption of organic farming practices in the Asia Pacific further fuels the demand for biopesticides to meet consumer preferences for organic produce.
