The Brazilian biopesticide market is projected to record a CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period (2022- 2027).

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the supply chain of biopesticide manufacturers was disrupted due to restrictions imposed by the government. The farming activities were also affected due to a shortage of labor and a lack of credit availability to run the farming operation. However, the demand for organic produce has surged post COVID-19 pandemic, which is anticipated to be a driving factor in the biopesticide market in the country.

The key drivers for this market include the growing adoption of organic farming, the negative impact of chemical pesticides, and the governments’ integrated approach to promoting the biopesticide industry in Brazil. Furthermore, the ministry is also actively promoting innovations in the fields of biopesticides, resulting in the introduction of innovative biological-based pesticide products in the country.

The biopesticides segment is driven by a growing awareness of sustainable food production, farmers' concerns about excessive chemical use, and the rising expense of chemical crop protection. This increased knowledge is reflected in the booming biological sector in Brazil.​

Key Market Trends

Adoption of Organic Farming is Driving the Market

The demand for organically grown produce in Brazil increased over the past few years as the growing movement for sustainable agriculture emerged in recent years, which is promoting practices that contribute to reducing social and environmental concerns over agricultural practices. The rising awareness about the benefits of organic produce among the Brazilian as well as global consumers is helping in increasing the demand for organic produce. According to the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, and Food Supply, there were 17,075 registered organic farmers in the country in 2018, compared to 6,700 in 2013.

Health-conscious consumers prefer organic food in order to avoid the adverse health effects caused by chemical preservatives in inorganic food. ​This is driving the market for biopesticides in the country. Moreover, Karen Friederich of the Brazilian Association of Collective Health stated that agrochemicals contaminate approximately 70% of the food consumed by Brazilians. Therefore, the growing awareness about healthy food products with minimal environmental impacts is anticipated to drive the use of biopesticides for use in organic farming across the country during the forecast period.

Bioinsectides are Dominating the Market

The Brazilian bioinsecticide market is projected to register a CAGR of 7.7% during the forecast period, 2022-2027.

The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, and Food Supply (MAPA) of Brazil approved 95 new biological pest control products in 2020. Mapa points out in a comment on their website that this number was high in contrast to past years. Biopesticides are also crucial instruments for making Brazilian agriculture more sustainable, according to the ministry. This creates a good opportunity for the bioinsecticide market to grow in the forecast period of 2027.

Various businesses are attempting to introduce items and services to the market, such as the CABI BioProtection Portal, a free, web-based service that allows users to learn about registered biocontrol and biopesticide products in the country. In addition to that, the leading companies have been launching approved biopesticides. This is expected to boost the growth rate of the bioinsecticide market, alongside increasing product launches and expansions by companies in the country.

Several companies are emphasizing collaboration agreements and are conducting R&D activities in order to introduce new products in the segment. Vitae Rural Biotecnologia introduced Spodoptera frugiperda multiple nucleopolyhedrovirus for maize in Brazil. Furthermore, prominent firms have been launching authorized biopesticides, which is expected to support the bioinsecticide market's growth rate, as well as increased product launches and expansions by enterprises in the country.

Competitive Landscape

The Brazilian biopesticides market is consolidated, with the major players occupying the major share of the market. The major players in the Brazilian biopesticides market are BASF SE, Vittia Group, FMC Corporation, Bayer AG, and UPL Ltd.
