The bio-insecticides market for thrips control is projected to grow at a CAGR of 19.7% from 2015 to reach a projected value of USD 418.3 Million by 2020. The market growth is driven by increasing demand for biological pest controls, increasing awareness toward the impact of chemicals used for pest control, rising world population resulting into increased food consumption and demand, and the promising results of using bio-insecticides for controlling infection caused by thrips. Along with these factors, the use of biological solutions for pest controls enhances the crop quality and productivity with minimum environmental hazards and toxicity, thus increasing their preference among the farmers.

Among the types of crops on which bio-insecticides are applied for controlling the infection caused by thrips, the fruits segment dominated the market. It was followed by vegetables and flowers. The commercial value of fruits highly depends on its appearance which is largely damaged by the thrips infection making it less saleable in the market. Thus, bio-insecticides are applied on fruits on a large scale for thrips control. Being environment friendly and less toxic, there is an increasing preference for bio-insecticides by farmers cultivating fruits and vegetables.

Among the formulations of bio-insecticides such as liquid formulations, water-dispensable granules, wettable powder, and pellets, the liquid formulations accounted for the largest share followed by water-dispensable granules and wettable powder. Liquid formulations are cost-effective, eco-friendly, and sustainable. Also, they offer a longer shelf-life with easy handling, transportation, and application. Companies are investing in the technological development of liquid formulation-based bio-insecticides, thus increasing their market share.

Bio-insecticides are made from three major active ingredients which are predators, biorationals, and parasites. The biorationals active ingredients accounted for the highest market share followed by parasites and predators. The demand for biorationals is increasing due to easy availability and increasing effectiveness in making bio-insecticides with active ingredients such as spinosad.

By 2020, Europe is projected to dominate the market for bio-insecticides for thrips control followed by North America and Asia-Pacific. Spain is projected to be the largest country-wise market in Europe by 2020. The growing resistance among pests toward chemicals has reduced the effect of synthetic insecticides in controlling thrips and other pests, accordingly increasing the application of biological solutions for the same in the European region. With the increasing importance of bio-insecticides in thrips control which helps to protect the crop and improve crop yield, bio-insecticides are progressively used as an important biological solution by the farmers to minimize the damage, thus increasing their demand in Europe. The bio-insecticides market for thrips control in the Asia-Pacific region is projected to grow with investments from several multinational manufacturers and promotion of biological solutions for crop protection especially in countries such as China, India, and Japan.

Bio-Insecticides Market for Thrips Control

Variable efficiency and lower shelf life of bio-insecticides for thrips control and barriers in the adoption of bio-insecticides due to dominating chemical pesticide industry and stubborn perception of growers are hindering the growth of bio-insecticides for thrips control.
