Global Biopesticides Market | Size, Share, Growth | 2023 - 2030

Biopesticides Market Size (2023 - 2030)

The global Biopesticides Market size was valued at USD 4.6 billion in 2022, growing with a CAGR of 14.4% to reach USD 8.8 billion from 2023 - 2030.

Biopesticides are biodegradable. Biopesticides are pesticides retrieved from plants, animals, some minerals, and bacteria. Biopesticides comprise natural substances that control pests, microorganisms that control pests, and biochemical plant growth, regulators.

Biopesticides are used in the agricultural sector for the purpose of weed control, disease control, insect control, plant physiology and productivity, and nematode control.

Biopesticides are inherited from bacteria, viruses, and fungi are a stable subject of analysis within modern agriculture. Biopesticides are non-hazardous to non-target organisms, comprising insects and wildlife benefits.


The demand for global biopesticides is projected to increase besides advancements in the agricultural field. The growing amount of investments for developing a strong agricultural sector creates a gold rush for market players in the biopesticides market. The market for biopesticides is very small compared to the overall pesticides market. The rising health issues related to the use of synthetic pesticides along with different advantages provided by various governments across the globe have influenced the market growth positively.


However, a dearth of sufficient knowledge and awareness concerning the common modes of action of biopesticides and a lasting understanding of high cost and low efficiency are some great barriers for manufacturers and suppliers. These factors restrain the global market growth.
