Increasing need for sustainable agriculture in developed countries to drive the global agricultural biologicals demand close to USD 12.86 billion by 2022

Agricultural biologicals are products derived from natural sources such as microorganisms, plant extracts, or other biological matter, and can be used as a substitute for agricultural chemical products. They provide crop protection from pests, diseases, and other threats, such as weeds. They also help enhance the growth of the plants, and help in keeping them healthy. Farmers have started to use agricultural biologicals along with biotechnology and a variety of agronomic practices in order to grow healthy and nutritious crops.
The global agricultural biologicals market is projected to reach USD 12.86 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 13.77% from 2017 to 2022. The segmentation of this market is based on type, source, mode of application, application, and region. Growth in trend of sustainable agricultural in the global market, low residue load, and supportive regulations are the key drivers fueling the growth of the agricultural biologicals market.

Limited product availability and low efficacy of biologicals act as the major restraining factor for this market.

The market for biologicals is at the emerging stage in countries such as India, Argentina, Japan, and Africa, due to the low efficacy of biologicals compared to that of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. Conventional insecticides have immediate knockdown effect due to high chemical residue, which helps to kill the insects at a faster rate. Additionally, the availability of such biological products still remains very limited in the market, due to different regulations being prevalent in different countries. Product and formulation registrations, in addition to the usage of new active ingredients, makes it difficult for companies to make their products available globally at the same time. This tends to further weaken the knowledge and awareness about the product, making the technology all the more difficult to gain pace. There remains an established market for chemical products, on which farmers heavily rely, making the market for biological products a niche and steadily growing one.

Agricultural Biologicals  Market

The market, however, is faced with challenges, such as poor agricultural practices and supply chain infrastructure. Lack of basic infrastructure is a major challenge in the development of the agricultural biologicals market in many countries, especially in the Sub-Saharan region. High transportation costs due to poor infrastructure, limited market information, lack of storage facilities, and limited business skills and knowledge are some of the major challenges faced by the agricultural sector in this region. According to the African Journal of Agricultural Research, the high cost of transportation is a result of the long average distance covered by agro-input dealers to source their goods. Poor domestic infrastructure and limited access to agricultural credit also undermine the effect and equitable participation of many African countries in world trade.

Agricultural Biologicals  Market

Foliar sprays: The fastest-growing method

The foliar spray means of application of biologicals is one of the most widely used methods to maximize production capacity. Growing plants readily assimilate trace nutrients in a combination with biologicals. The direct application on leaves is the most effective way of supplying nutrients to plants, which results in enhanced productivity and greater yield; this also leads to rapid absorption and a uniform supply of nutrients to each part of a plant.

  • Foliar spray fertilizers are a good means to supplement the nutritional needs of your plants. Therefore, there is a wide variety of foliar feeds to choose from; usually, water-soluble powder or liquid fertilizers are used. Foliar spray is an excellent solution for plants experiencing stress. Macronutrients and micronutrients are normally added along with biostimulants meant for foliar application. Trace minerals and other readily available nutrients are absorbed faster and easily by plants. Amino acid biostimulants applied as foliar sprays enhance the photosynthetic rate and dry matter partitioning, thereby increasing crop yield. Proteins and vitamin B are also added to control fungal diseases.

    Soil Treatment: Improving soil quality

    Soil treatment can be defined as the steps taken to improve the quality of soil by means of adjusting the pH of the soil, improving nutrient quality, and protecting the soil from weeds, pests, and harmful organisms. It also encompasses soil remediation measures through physical, chemical, and biological methods, undertaken to remove hazardous substances from the soil that has been contaminated and made unfit for production of agricultural products for human consumption.

    Deficiency of organic materials, sand, and high clay contents make the soil poor and unsustainable for plant growth. Soil treatment using biologicals provide better rooting environment for plants by improving soil structure, aeration, water retention, and nutrient availability.

    Seed Treatment: Protecting seeds from diseases and pests

    Seed treatment is defined as the application of biological and chemical agents to control primary soil and seed-borne infestation of insects and diseases that lead to devastating effects on crop production; it improves crop safety and plant health, resulting in better yields.

    Seed treatment protects seeds from early season diseases and insect pests, which improves crop emergence and growth; it also improves plant population, resulting in higher productivity. The application of biologicals to seeds helps the crops grow uniformly by retaining optimum moisture content, stimulating seedling development, and activating soil microflora. It also results in increased stress tolerance.

    The agricultural biologicals market is estimated to reach a value of USD 6.75 Billion in 2017, and is projected to reach USD 12.86 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 13.77% from 2017. The market is influenced by the adoption of modern agricultural practices along with the regulatory support for a sustainable approach to limit excessive agrochemical application.

    The market for agricultural biological, based on type, has been segmented into biopesticides, biofertilizers, and biostimulants. Due to the increased interest in sustainable agricultural practices, and the loss of many conventional products to reregistration or performance issues, the biopesticides segment occupied a large share in the market.

    The agricultural biologicals market, by source, has been segmented into microbials and biochemicals. The microbials segment estimated to be the largest in 2017, owing to the high usage of microbials, which have various extraordinary properties/characteristics that help to control fungi, bacteria, insects, and weeds. They also stimulate plant growth and yield by improving access to nutrients.

    The market for agricultural biological, by mode of application, has been segmented into foliar spray, soil treatment, and seed treatment. Foliar spray is an excellent solution for plants experiencing stress. Macronutrients and micronutrients are normally added along with the biostimulants meant for foliar application. Due to these advantages, the foliar spray segment is estimated to dominate the market in 2017.

    The agricultural biologicals market, by application, has been segmented into cereals & grains, oilseeds & pulses and chemical. The fruits & vegetables segment is estimated to dominate the market in 2017, due to the increased demand for fruits & vegetables with lesser residual load.

    Agricultural Biologicals  Market

    North America is projected to be fastest-growing in the market in the next five years. The dominant share of the North American region is attributed to the increase in need for sustainable agricultural practices and ban on the usage of certain harmful chemicals.
