The German Biopesticide Market is projected to attain a CAGR of 15% during forecast period of 2020-2025. In the European region, Germany is the fastest growing market for biopesticides. According to EPA, biopesticides are certain type of pesticides, derived from such natural materials as plants, bacteria and certain minerals. They help in controlling pests through non-toxic mechanisms. The increased demand for naturally obtained healthy foods has fuelled the market opportunities for biopesticides. The action plan to ban chemicals like glyphosate by end of 2023 by Germany will boost the growth of biopesticide market. The implementation of Integrated Pest Management by European Union has been an advantage for biopesticide market. IPM focuses on reducing the use of toxic mechanisms to control pests and depend on the natural pest control mechanisms without any disruption to the agro-ecosystems. Germany is the largest organic food market, and this has contributed to the growth of biopesticides as more people are focusing on health now. the market does face restraints of low shelf life of products and high target pest specificity. With more concentration on research and development for producing high quality microbials in this segment the market can overcome these restraints.

Key Market Trends

Increased Practice of Organic Farming

According to Food and Agricultural Organization, Germany has emerged as one of the largest markets in organic products. The increased demand for organic products due to the health benefits in them has enhanced the market. People prefer product with less chemicals and to produce such products farmers should use biopesticides for better productivity. This acted as a primary reason for the increased are under organic farming in Germany. The federal structure of Germany has allocated different rules in different regions regarding organic farming. The ardent support from Government for the promotion of organic farming using biopesticides has encouraged farmers to shift from normal farming to new techniques of farming. Increased concern about the environment has paved way for the use of biopesticides instead of normal pesticides which tend to damage the natural pest controls mechanisms of crops. The spending of government towards brio control products have promoted the use of such products among people.

Regulatory framework promoting biopesticides

Pesticides play an important role in agricultural production by preventing disease and infestation of crops. But certain synthetic pesticides used for the protection of crops tend to be harmful for humans and environment. Pesticides enter the soil through leaching or run-off and reach groundwaters, making it dangerous to humans. These chemicals from fruits and vegetables can also cause various health hazards to humans like cancer. To control the use of these chemical pesticides, European Union has devised certain rules and regulations. According to the objectives of 7th Environment Action Programme, plant protection products like pesticides should not have nay harmful effects on human health and environment. The reduction in sale of pesticides from 2016 to 2018 is a positive impact on this policy. The decision to completely ban the use of glyphosate by 2023 will also promote the use of biopesticides by larger population.

Competitive Landscape

The biopesticides market has companies from local and global arena competing among themselves on new products. Thus, the market is fragmented among these players. The major players in the market are Bayer Crop Science, BIOFA, BASF, Certris Europe, Koppert Biological systems. The companies are investing aggressively in the market to bring innovative products to market through research and development.
