      Key Report Findings

      A worldwide demand for reduction in use of chemical pesticides, regarded by consumers as harmful, is leading to the development of innovative and less harmful plant protection strategies. Pesticides such as organochlorine insecticides, methyl bromide, etc., are discontinued due to their health hazards. Alternative protection systems (biological products) are the need of the future and should be devised in place of conventional pesticides.

      The biopesticides industry mostly encompasses small-to-medium enterprises. All pesticide companies (whether chemical or bio-control) in the United States must be registered according to the EPA biopesticide definition, which is an expensive affair. Hence, it leads to the question of how small companies can register, market, and compete with global agrochemical bigwigs. The common farmer is highly likely to choose a reputed, cheaper brand over a private-label, though it may be labeled as “green”. However, the trend towards eco-friendly products is making biopesticides more noticeable than ever before. Growing consumer awareness for food and agricultural products with less or no chemical residues, and growers’ and farmers’ demand for safer pesticides has triggered a big demand for biopesticides. Consequently, big agrochemical companies too are making inroads into the biopesticides market through takeovers, alliances, license deals, collaborations, etc. For example, BASF AG made a marketing deal with US biopesticide company AgraQuest while Bayer AG acquired Agrogreen’s (Israel) certain businesses. Apparently such deals are lucrative; however, big companies are wary as any negative effect would mar their brands.

      Biopesticides - including microbial pesticides, entomopathogenic nematodes, baculoviruses, plant derived pesticides, and Insect pheromones - are increasingly being tested as alternatives to chemical pesticides and key components of Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The stark truth is that, however, biopesticides constitute a very small fraction of the global pesticides market.

      Biopesticides market is projected to grow healthy at a CAGR of 13.45% through 2015. The growth of global biopesticides industry is related to the popularity of insect resistance crops. The huge demand for biopesticides has led to the intervention of new technologies in agricultural practices that would generate new and innovative changes in production. Government regulatory bodies are now coming up with improved measures to encourage biocontrol companies. Increasing attention is being directed toward natural enemies such as predators, parasites, and pathogens. None of these predators or parasites can be mass-produced and stored for long periods of time and must be raised in vivo. The most desirable product is a biocontrol agent that possesses all the advantageous characteristics of a chemical pesticide, displays high toxicity to the target organisms, can be mass produced, and also have a long shelf life.
