Agricultural Biologicals Market

Agricultural Biologicals Market Size & Share - Future Growth Expectations

The agricultural biologicals market size is projected to reach USD 27.9 billion by 2028 from USD 14.6 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 13.8% during the forecast period in terms of value. The agricultural biologicals market is experiencing growth due to growing organic farming and government initiatives. 

Agricultural biologicals are a diverse group of products derived from natural materials, including plant extracts, microorganisms, beneficial insects, and other organic substances. These products are used in agricultural practices to enhance crop health, improve yields, and manage pests, diseases, and weeds in an environmentally sustainable way. They are increasingly seen as an alternative or supplement to traditional chemical pesticides and fertilizers.
Several Factors are Driving the Agricultural Biologicals Market Growth:
  • Rising Demand for Organic Food: Consumers are increasingly concerned about the safety and quality of their food, and there is a growing demand for organic products. Agricultural biologicals are essential for organic farming, as they cannot use synthetic pesticides or fertilizers.
  • Focus on Sustainable Agriculture: There is a growing awareness of the environmental impact of conventional agriculture, and farmers are looking for more sustainable practices. Agricultural biologicals can help to improve soil health, reduce pollution, and conserve water.
  • Stricter Regulations on Chemical Pesticides: Governments around the world are enacting stricter regulations on the use of chemical pesticides due to concerns about human health and environmental safety. This is creating a demand for safer and more sustainable alternatives, such as agricultural biologicals.
  • Rise of Integrated Pest Management (IPM): IPM is a comprehensive approach to pest control that uses a combination of methods, including biological controls, to manage pest populations. Agricultural biologicals are an essential component of IPM programs.
  • Government Initiatives: Many governments are providing incentives to farmers who adopt sustainable agricultural practices, including the use of agricultural biologicals. This is helping to accelerate the growth of the market.

These factors are expected to contribute to a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 13.8% for the agricultural biologicals market in the coming years. The biopesticides segment is expected to hold the largest market share, followed by the biofertilizers and biostimulants segments.
