Key Highlights

  • Bioherbicides is the Largest Form : Among bioherbicides, Fusarium oxysporum and Alternaria cuscutacidae are important microorganisms used as biological pesticides against the weeds Opuntia and Cuscata.
  • Bioinsecticides is the Fastest-growing Form : The market for bioinsecticides in Brazil is valued at USD 38.9 million in 2022, with a share of 57.7%. The Bioinsecticides market has increased by 27.6% during 2017-2022.
  • Row Crops is the Largest Crop Type : Brazil's main row crops are soybean, maize, and rice. The dominance of row crops is due to an increase in organic acreage of 23.3% from 2017 to 2022 in the country.
  • Row Crops is the Fastest-growing Crop Type : Row crops accounted for 78.9% of overall market value and 78.8% of total volume in 2022. Brazil is one of the largest producers and exporter of soybean, maize, and rice.

Brazil Biopesticides Market Trends

Bioherbicides is the largest Form

  • Biopesticides are natural products from live microorganisms (fungi, bacteria, microsporidia, and viruses), microscopic animals (nematodes), and macro-organisms (predators, parasitoids, insects, and mites) that are utilized as plant protection products. In 2022, the Brazilian biopesticides market accounted for about 82.7% of the market value of the entire crop protection segment. Brazil already had 433 biopesticides registered as of March 2022, indicating a 404% growth over nine years.
  • Row crop cultivation is dominant in the country. The consumption of biopesticides for the cultivation of row crops was valued at about USD 172.2 million, with a 78.9% share in 2022. Anthracnose, target spot, white mold, and Asian rust are a few of the primary foliar diseases that cause considerable losses to Brazilian soybean crops.
  • In the Brazilian biopesticides market, bioherbicides recorded the highest consumption, dominating with a market share of 38.15% by value in 2022. Bioherbicides were followed by biofungicides, other biopesticides, and bioinsecticides, with market shares of 25.6%, 18.42%, and 17.8%, respectively, in 2022.
  • In 2022, the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture published the registration of two new biological insecticides. The first is based on garlic extract, which can be used to control nematodes (tiny soil worm pests that damage plant roots), while the second is a mite that controls whitefly, a pest that attacks potatoes, tomatoes, and beans, among other crops.
  • In recent years, there has been an increase in demand for biopesticides and biocompatible solutions to control pests, diseases, and weeds in Brazil since there has been an increase in concerns over the environment and food contamination due to synthetic chemical pesticides.
