On the other hand, lack of awareness and infrastructure in a number of emerging economies is holding the true prosperity of the global biopesticides market, which is estimated to be worth US$9,557.8 mn by 2025, substantially up from its evaluated worth of merely US$3,368.42 mn in 2017.

Bioherbicides Emerges as Most Profitable Product Segment

Product-wise, the global biopesticides market has been segmented into bioinsecticides, biofungicides, bioherbicides, bionematicides, and plant incorporated protectants (PIP). In 2015 and 2016, bioherbicides contributed major share of biopesticides market and is likely to remain the dominant segment throughout the forecast period. Preference over bioherbicides in region such as North America and Europe is the major reason that is anticipated to contribute the demand for bioherbicides. Bioinsecticide is majorly prefer in Asia Pacific. In Asia Pacific, weed control is majorly done by traditional method by plucking or removing weed with the help of human labor.

Production of Cereals and Grains Serves Maximum Demand

Application-wise, the global market for biopesticides has been bifurcated into cereals and grains, oilseeds and pulses, fruits and vegetables, nurseries, and turf. Cereals and grains dominated the biopesticides market in 2015 and 2016 and is projected to remain the major crop type for biopesticides market during forecast period. Fruits and vegetables is another major application, which is anticipated to grow at moderate rate during the forecast period. Use of biopesticides in Ornamental & Turf is gaining popularity in North America and expected descent growth in future.
