Global Biopesticides Market Size (2022-2027)

The Global Biopesticides Market was worth US$ 2.9 billion in 2021, and it is estimated to reach a valuation of US$ 5.5 billion by the end of 2027, expanding at an annual growth rate of 13.2% between 2022 and 2027.

The biopesticides are the substances with are made of bio-based formulations such as animals, plants, bacteria and minerals. Biopesticides are used to kill pests will damage the crops and exhibit the growth of the plant as well as crops. Sometimes, the biopesticides contains live bacteria, which produces toxin and this toxin kills harmful pests which damages the crops. The biopesticides can be classified into Biochemical insecticides, Microbials and Plant-incorporated protectants.

The biopesticides do not cause any harmful effect to the environment as it does not left any residue over the plants like chemical products. Bio-pesticides offers log-term protection to the crop as well as soil. It is easily to handle and use. Biopesticides are safer as it does not contain harmful chemicals which cause hazards to crop, human, animals and the soil as compared to synthetic pesticides.  Biopesticides are very useful in those cases where farmers are not able to control pest in spite of using heavy usages of chemical pesticides. Owing to these benefits the demand of the biopesticides is increasing which further propelling the growth of the global biopesticides market in the forecast period between 2022 and 2027.


The driving force of the Biopesticides Market is the increasing demand of organic food by the population around the globe. Consumers are becoming more concerned about health and shifting their focus towards organic food which is fueling the demand of biopesticides in the market. Also, to meet the demand of export quality products, the use of biopesticides are increasing.

The Biopesticides or biological are safer and easier for the environment than chemical products and often formulated to only affects the pests which is propelling the demand of biopesticides over chemical products. The bio-pesticides are residue free and does not affect environment. Therefore, the government of several countries has imposed strict regulations for environment pollution is driving the growth of biopesticides market.

The increasing awareness towards the adverse affects of chemicals in the crops as well health and the benefits of using biopesticides fueling the demand of biopesticides in developing countries. Moreover, the government of these countries is supporting farmers for organic agriculture which further fueling the growth of the market in projected period. Additionally, the key players are also investing huge amount in research and development of bio-based crop protection solutions which if boosting the growth of global biopesticides market in the projected period between 2022 and 2027.


Lack of awareness related to the benefits of biopesticides among farmers in under developing countries and some of the developing countries in hampering the growth of the market. Additionally, the biopesticides has the less shelf life as compared to synthetic chemicals which is the restricting the growth of the market.

Market Segmentation

Global Biopesticides Market - By Type:

  • Bioinsecticides

  • Biofungicides

  • Bionematicides

  • Bioherbicides

Based on type, the Bioinsecticides is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period as bionsecticides are safe for use and pose no hazards to the environment and they do not leave behind any chemical residue on the plants. Also, the reduced product development cost and the time associated with bioinsecticides offers advantages to the manufacturers  and they can also register within short duration while chemical registration can take as long as three years.

Global Biopesticides Market - By Source:

  • Microbials

  • Biochemicals

  • Beneficial Insects

Based on sources, the Global Biopesticides market is segmented into Microbials, Biochemicals, and Beneficial Insects. Microbials biopesticides is estimated to dominate the biopesticides market in the forecast period as microbial origin pesticides are naturally composed occurring virus, fungi or bacteria. The microbials are most preferred organic and residue free food production. Owing to the factors such as the higher advantage of selectivity, high affectivity, no adverse effects on human, plants and animals and easy to use are propelling the growth of biopesticides market.

Global Biopesticides Market - By Formulation:

  • Dry

  • Liquid

Based on Formulation, the Global Biopesticides market is segmented into liquid and dry. Liquid biopesticides is estimated to record the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Liquid biopesticides have a longer term of action (up to 6 months) than dry biopesticides (up to 3 months) and provide effective and efficient disease control performance.

Global Biopesticides Market - By Mode of Application:

  • Seed treatment

  • Soil treatment

  • Foliar Spray

  • Others

Based on Formulation, the Global Biopesticides market is segmented into Seed treatment, Soil treatment, Foliar Spray, and Others. Foliar spray is widely used among farmers because it helps in the immediate recovery of the pests insecticides parts of the plants. This is most effective mode of application as it is safe and easily handled application.

Global Biopesticides Market - By Crop:

  • Grains and Cereals

  • Pulses and Oilseeds

  • Vegetables and Fruits

  • Others

Based on Crop, the Global Biopesticides market is segmented into Grains and Cereals, Pulses and Oilseeds, Vegetables and Fruits, Others. Vegetable and fruit segment is expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period due to growing trend of organic agriculture and the increasing demand of organic fruits and vegetables.
