Global Market for Pesticides to Reach $83.7 Billion in 2019

(PRWEB) July 22, 2014

BCC Research (http://www.bccresearch.com) reveals in its new report, GLOBAL MARKETS FOR BIOPESTICIDES, the global market for the overall pesticides industry is expected to grow to nearly $83.7 billion by 2019, with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.3%. Biopesticides, the fastest-growing segment of the market, is moving at a significant 13.9%, more than twice the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of synthetic pesticides.

A rapidly expanding global population coupled with limited agricultural land is driving farmers and industry to develop sustainable and productive methods of providing food to feed an estimated nine billion people by 2050. Improvements in technology, agricultural techniques and pest control have allowed farmers to expand crop production on the limited arable land available. This expansion of productivity has come with a price in soil erosion, pesticide-tolerant weeds and insects, and concerns about the safety of foods used for both human and animal consumption.

To ensure productive crops, most farmers have turned to the use of synthetic pesticides to control crop-destroying pests. During the past 20 years, however, more farmers are recognizing the need for other avenues for pest control that are not as damaging to the environment and the land. These farmers are turning to biopesticides to prevent pest damage in a more ecologically friendly manner. Many farmers are using genetically modified (GM) seeds with pest deterrents genetically incorporated into the seed.

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.
