Global Biopesticides Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The global biopesticides market size is expected to reach USD 4.20 billion in 2024 and reach USD 7.81 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 13.2% from 2024 and 2029.


Biopesticides are substances that are made of bio-based formulations such as animals, plants, bacteria, and minerals. Biopesticides are used to kill pests, which will damage the crops and exhibit the growth of the plant as well as crops. Sometimes, biopesticides contain live bacteria, which produce toxins, and these toxins kill harmful pests that damage the crops. The biopesticides can be classified into Biochemical insecticides, Microbials and Plant-incorporated protectants. The biopesticides do not cause any harmful effects on the environment as it does not leave any residue over the plants like chemical products. Bio-pesticides offer long-term protection to the crop as well as soil. It is easy to handle and use. Biopesticides are safer as it does not contain harmful chemicals that cause hazards to crops, humans, animals, and the soil as compared to synthetic pesticides.  Biopesticides are very useful in those cases where farmers are not able to control pests in spite of using heavy usages of chemical pesticides. Owing to these benefits, the demand for biopesticides is increasing, which further propelling the growth of the global biopesticides market in the forecast period between 2023 and 2028.


The driving force of the biopesticides market is the increasing demand for 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 for biopesticides in the market. Also, to meet the demand for export quality products, the use of biopesticides is increasing.

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

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


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

Impact Of COVID-19 On Global Biopesticides Market:

The global biopesticides market has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. The complete lockdown during this pandemic has adversely affected many industries, including agriculture and crop protection. In the Agriculture sector, the biopesticides market was slowed down due to disturbances in transportation and logistics, Moreover, the Biopesticide market has experienced interruptions in the entire value chain from raw materials supply to manufacturing, packing and distribution. Furthermore, the lockdown and movement restriction have led to the unavailability of the workforce, which has affected production as well as trade movements. The market situation is recovering from 2021, and now it is expected that the growth of the Biopesticide market will increase in the near future.

Global Biopesticides Market By Type:

Based on type, the bioinsecticides segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period.

As bioinsecticides 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 offer advantages to the manufacturers and they can also register within a short duration while chemical registration can take as long as three years.

Global Biopesticides Market By Source:

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

Global Biopesticides Market By Formulation:

Based on Formulation, the global biopesticides market is segmented into liquid and dry. Liquid biopesticides are 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:

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 and insecticide parts of the plants. This is the most effective mode of application as it is a safe and easily handled application.

Global Biopesticides Market By Crop:

Based on Crop, the global biopesticides market is segmented into grains and cereals, Pulses and Oilseeds, Vegetables and Fruits, and Others. The vegetable and fruit segment is expected to boost market growth during the forecast period due to the growing trend of organic agriculture and the increasing demand for organic fruits and vegetables.
