The Global Biological Control Agent Market is anticipated to witness a growth of steady CAGR in the forecast period, 2023-2027. This can be ascribed to the increasing public concern about synthetic pesticides hazard on human body coupled with increasing regulations on synthetic chemicals in farming and subsequent bans such chemicals across the globe. Government across the world making efforts for growth of sustainable farming and the increasing area under organic cultivation, less stringent regulations, and increasing need for food security. The faster adoption rate of biological controls due to their easy product registration, low capital investment, among others is expected to spur the market growth during the forecast period. Besides, increasing need for food security along with increasing area under organic cultivation are further increasing the demand for biological control agents.

Increasing Demand for Organic Farming

Organic farming represents a unique, fast-growing segment of the food industry. The area under organic farming is rapidly growing across the world. Various factors alternately drive and inhibit the growth of biopesticides. Moreover, stringent regulations to stop the usage of synthetic pesticides, ionizing radiation, and chemical fertilizers, and produce biological items will boost the demand for biological control agents. Similarly, innovations in biological control products, coupled with a growing consumer awareness about the negative impact of synthetic pesticides, are expected to boost the adoption rate of biological controls in the forecast period. Furthermore, the increasing resistance of pests against chemical agents, has significantly increased the demand for biological control agents, driving the biocontrol agents market growth.

Rising Demand for Cereals & Grains Boosting the Sales of Biocontrol Agents

The cereals & grains category captured more than 40% of the market share, based on crop type, in 2021. This is primarily due to the high demand for cereals and grains by the growing population across the world, and pesticide residue is generally a source of concern among consumers in their food products. Moreover, as per the government source, farmers lost around 40–45% of crops due to pests, globally. Therefore, biocontrol agents are widely used to protect cereal & grain crops from damage. The main elements influencing the market in the nation are the increasing expense of chemical inputs, their negative impact on soil quality and the environment, and the growing awareness regarding balanced plant nutrition, legislation, and the consequent marketing of lower-risk pest management methods contributing significantly.
