Global Markets for Biopesticides Market should reach $49.9 billion in 2012


This report provides the reader with a detailed analysis of the global biopesticides industry. It also discusses technological developments, future trends, and emerging opportunities. This information will be useful for those involved in strategic planning, marketing, sales, and technological development.

The major objectives of this study are as follows:

  • To assess the technology developments.
  • To identify the driving factors for demand.
  • To make available the most current and reliable information on the market size.
  • To estimate the global supply and demand scenario broken down by applications and regions.
  • To estimate the growth rate in demand.
  • To estimate the projected global supply and demand scenario over the next five years and analyzing it via application sectors as well as product types.
  • To identify the factors influencing this industry and make appropriate recommendations.

Projections for biopesticides use will be offered for geographical regions including the Americas (i.e., U.S., Canada, Central America [including Mexico], South America); Europe, Middle East, Russia, and Africa (EMRA); and Asia (Japan, China, India, Australia, New Zealand, other Oceanic countries).


Increased environmental awareness and the pollution potential and health hazards from many conventional pesticides, as well as increasing global demand for organically grown food, are driving the use of biopesticides.

Biopesticides offer several advantages:

  • Biopesticides are environmentally safer than conventional pesticides, which are often hazardous chemicals.
  • Biopesticides offer more targeted activity toward desired pests, whereas conventional pesticides often affect a broad spectrum of pests as well as birds and mammalian species.
  • Biopesticides often are effective in very small quantities, thereby offering lower exposure. They decompose quickly, leaving virtually no harmful residue and allow field re–entry almost  immediately after application.
  • Biopesticides can be used in rotation with conventional pesticides when used in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs. Such programs can offer high crop yields while dramatically reducing the use of conventional pesticides.

The popularity of biopesticides has increased substantially in recent years, as extensive research has enhanced their effectiveness. A number of research centers around the world are undertaking research aimed at improving techniques for the augmentation and application of biopesticides, with the objective of improving the commercial feasibility of producing and using biopesticides.

In light of these advances, there is need for a current and comprehensive report on biopesticides. This report is designed to cover aspects of technology, demand trends, project opportunities, and investment levels. It examines the worldwide commercial applications of biopesticides, their markets, market penetration versus conventional pesticides, and growth opportunities for the biopesticide market. This report gives a clear, quantitative picture of the supply and demand scenario and highlights the technological and investment opportunities in the field.


This market report organizes information from diverse sources into a cohesive unit that includes a pesticide (synthetic and biopesticide) overview, industry structure, technology, and emerging technology/patents sections. Information on the synthetic pesticide market, genetically modified (GM) seeds, and the biopesticide market is explored. Additional information on the organic market for food products offers the reader an opportunity to assess the biopesticide market in relation to crop production and sale of organic foods.


Where precise information was not available, a projection was made using reasonable assumptions and estimates based on historical data. Market data is based on manufacturers’ sales and correlations with the organic food market.


This updated version of the biopesticide industry analysis is a valuable tool for decision makers, marketing personnel, and manufacturers in the synthetic and biopesticide industries. Researchers at research foundations and university agriculture departments will find valuable information about the global organic food, synthetic pesticide, and biopesticide industries.


The data for this report was gathered from primary and secondary sources. Sources include information obtained from industry analysts; manufacturers and company reports; industry trade journals; and industry associations. Additional information was obtained through the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings, The World Health Organization (WHO), ETC Group, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), International Service for the Acquisition of Agri–biotech Applications (ISAAA), Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI), the U.S. Department of Agriculture Economic Research Service (USDA–ERS), International Biocontrol Manufacture’s Association (IBMA), and the USDA National Organic Program (NOP). European and Japanese agricultural organizations were also used to compile EMRA and Asian information.
