      Research projects that the global biopesticide and synthetic pesticide market will grow from $54.8 billion in 2013 to nearly $61.8 billion by 2014, and to $83.7 billion by 2019 at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.3%, from 2014 through 2019.

      This report provides:

      • An overview of the global biopesticides and synthetic pesticides industry, including technological developments, future trends, and emerging opportunities.
      • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2013, estimates for 2014, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2019.
      • Identification of the driving factors for demand.
      • Discussion of emerging technologies.
      • Comprehensive company profiles of major players.


      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 include:

      • Assessing the technology developments. 
      • Identifying the driving factors for demand. 
      • Making available the most current and reliable information on the market size. 
      • Estimating the global supply and demand scenario broken down by applications and regions. 
      • Estimating the growth rate in demand. 
      • Estimating the projected global supply and demand scenario over the next five years and analyzing it through application sectors as well as product types. 
      • Identifying the factors influencing this industry and making appropriate recommendations.

      Projections for biopesticide 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).


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

      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 effect 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 and demand trends, and 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 market report organizes information from diverse sources into a cohesive unit that includes a pesticide (synthetic and biopesticide) overview, organic farming and production overview, industry structure, technology and 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 corrolations with the organic food market.


      This updated analysis of the biopesticide industry is a valuable tool for decision makers, marketing personnel and manufacturers in the synthetic and biopestide industries. Researchers at research foundations and university agriculture departments will find valuable information on 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 Acquistion 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), Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FIBL) and the USDA National Organic Program (NOP). European and Japanese agricultural organizations were also used to compile EMRA and Asian information.
