The global Biocontrol Agents market is estimated to surpass $3.71 billion by  2025 growing at an estimated CAGR of more than 9.86% from 2020 to 2025  majorly driven by the growing awareness of biocontrol agents among consumers. In addition to this, increasing concentration in food contamination due to a variety of chemicals is fueling the market growth

What are the Biocontrol Agents?

Biocontrol agents are the natural organisms like parasitism, predation, and other mechanisms for controlling the plant pests. They play a key role in controlling the plant pests such as nematodes, weeds, mites. These biocontrol agents help in maintaining and balancing the plant species like nematodes weeds, insects, and mites. Biocontrol agents have no side effects as they are eco- friendly in nature.

Due to the lucrative aspects, Biocontrol agents are replacing the pesticides and other chemicals. Factors such as ease of use and its availability are driving the biocontrol agents market. Biocontrol agents are effective throughout the season and are considered economical as compared to other chemicals such as pesticides and insecticides, thus the growth of biocontrol agents will certainly expand in the coming future. Increasing investments by key market players in biological solutions especially in R&D capabilities is creating opportunities for the biocontrol agents market. However, lack of awareness and knowledge among growers regarding biocontrol agents are hindering the growth of the market. This report incorporates an in-depth assessment of biocontrol agents market by active substance, application, environment, crop type, target pest, and geography. The major types of biocontrol agents encompassed in the scope includes various active substances such as microbial.

What are the major applications for Biocontrol Agents?

The various applications include on-field, seed treatment, post-harvest. Among these applications of biocontrol agents, the on-field application is growing at a faster rate. On-field sprays protect the field’s crop, vegetables and food products that are cultivated from various pests and insects that may damage the product. On-field spraying is considered safe to use and thus most of the farmers are using this technique for better production.  

Market Research and Market Trends of Biocontrol Agents Ecosystem

Increasing concentration on food contamination owing to a variety of chemicals is fueling the market growth of biocontrol agents

Rising demand of biocontrol agents compared to pesticides owing to their cost effectiveness are boosting the growth and development of the biocontrol agents market. Biocontrol agents are capable of replacing chemical agents that are used by decreasing emissions in the environment and thus resulting in lesser soil and water pollution hence the demand for biocontrol agents is rising day-by-day

Acceptance regarding biological control agents in the agricultural system, increasing use of biocontrol agents for pest control in horticulture and high value crop fields spurs the biocontrol agent market for these products

On-field (Spray) are estimated to dominate the biocontrol agents market with a share of around 58%, thus generating excess revenue of $1.22 billion in 2020. The market is forecast to witness a growth of nearly 10.39% projecting to around $3.71billion by2025 , which is mainly attributed to the growing demand from the applications such as seed treatment, post-harvest and so on

North America region has dominated the biocontrol agents market in 2020 and is estimated to grow with a CAGR of 10% during the forecast period 2020-2025
