Growing Awareness about Environmental Viability of Agriculture Drives Demand for Biopesticides
The rising use of biopesticides is part of a larger movement towards making advanced agricultural practices harmonious with the environmental conditions. This has become a popular move in several developed economies, with a subsequent rise in government support leading to growing adoption of the biopesticides market. The fertile agricultural research and development scenario in developed Western economies such as the U.S. and the U.K. has also helped growth of the biopesticides market thanks to the easy availability of advanced research and product development tools.
The presence of traditional biopesticide systems in several Southeast Asian countries such as China and India has helped the growth prospects of the Asia Pacific market for biopesticides. Many local players have found a growing market, which has raised the amount of activity from more prosperous Western market players. This is likely to drive the biopesticides market in countries such as China, India, and Australia in the coming years. Rising government initiative towards the use of ecofriendly agricultural products in key countries such as China, India, and Australia has made the market all the more attractive for existing as well as new players.
Improving Fruit Production Offers Excellent Growth Opportunities
Rising fruit production in North America and Europe is likely to be a major driver for the biopesticides market in the coming years. Biopesticides are highly effective against microbial infections that plague fruit crops, leading to their growing acceptance in the agriculture sector across the world. The growing awareness regarding the benefit of biopesticides in comparison to conventional chemical pesticides in fruit farming is likely to lead to rising government support in the coming years, which will aid the growth of the biopesticides market. The growing demand for exotic fruits and the rampant globalization of the food and beverage industry is thus likely to be a key driver for the global biopesticides market, as it will enable a steady growth in demand from the market.
