Biopesticides are a particular type of pesticides that are obtained from a plethora of various natural materials like animals, plants, particular minerals, and bacteria. Also known as biochemical pesticides, these are substances that may be found naturally and control the spread of pests through the various non-toxic solution. Conventional pesticides, on the contrary, are synthetic materials that directly kill the pests.
High production of biopesticides along with the shift towards organic farming practice, Latin America biopesticides market share has witnessed profitable growth over the past several years. On the other hand, the Middle East and Africa biopesticides industry is expected to showcase considerable growth in the coming years due to the rise in agricultural productivity along with an improved focus on exporting farm produce to developed countries such as Europe.
Lack of availability of arable land
Another major factor supporting the consumption of bio-sourced pesticides is the declining availability of arable land which has encouraged the farming industry to use more sustainable options over chemicals, as the elements present in the chemical pesticides may lead to land and water contamination.
Moreover, the enforcement of stringent regulations against the use of synthetic pesticides by the governments across the globe has widened the acceptance of biopesticides in the wide agriculture industry.
Restrictions on the use of synthetic pesticides
In September 2019, five French cities imposed a ban on the use of synthetic pesticides within their regions in a bid to safeguard biodiversity and public health. The farmers in these regions are only allowed to use natural ingredients that do not harm the land as well as the health of the consumers.
With respect to the types of products, the market is bifurcated into bio fungicides, bio insecticides, and bio herbicides among various others. The other biopesticides segment comprises oil, insect repellent, sulfur, moth control, and other biochemicals.
