Drivers and Restraints:

Level of Risk Related with Synthetic Chemicals in Agriculture to Spur Market Growth

The market for biologicals utilized in agriculture is driven by the surging consciousness of the detrimental effect on the environment triggered by synthetic plant protection constituents. The maladministration in the usage of inorganic agricultural biologicals inputs, particularly synthetic fertilizers has resulted in the increment in the quantity of GHGs produced such as carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O), and methane (CH4). This has substantially resulted in the farmers and growers to move to bio-based agri-inputs.

Regional Insights:

North America to Dominate Backed by Stringent Guidelines Regarding Usage of Protective Chemicals

North America held the largest market share and accounted for USD 2.94 billion in 2020 in the global marketplace.  The demand for biological crop production and crop protection products is increasingly rising, owing to severe restrictions on the utilization of numerous synthetic crop protection chemicals as they pose considerable risk to the human wellbeing as well as environment.

Europe is one of the dominating consumers of agriculture biological products and the region is anticipated to exhibit cordial performance throughout the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is estimated to demonstrate important growth prospects for the market owing to rising sustainability issues among consumers and farmers.

Competitive Landscape:

Innovative Product Launch Announcement by Key Players to Bolster Market Growth

The prominent players adopt several strategies to bolster their position in the market as leading companies. One such key strategy is acquiring companies to bolster the brand value among users. Another essential strategy is periodically launching innovative products with a detailed study of the market and its target audience.
