The agricultural biologicals market size is estimated to account for a value of USD 8.8 billion in 2019 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 13.6% to reach a value of USD 18.9 billion by 2025. Factors such as the increasing trend of sustainable agriculture in the global market, low residue levels, and supportive regulations are the key factors driving the growth of the agricultural biologicals market. Expansions, new product launches, and agreements were the dominant strategies adopted by key players to capitalize on the strong market potential.
The product portfolio of major companies operating in the agricultural biologicals market is more focused on biocontrols due to the high demand for bioinsecticides and biofungicides for integrated pest management in developed countries. The major advantages of integrated pest management are that these are usually inherently less or not toxic than others affecting only the target pest and closely related organisms, effective in micro-quantities, and quickly kill.
The agricultural biologicals market, by mode of application, was dominated by the foliar spray segment. Foliar application helps increase nutrient supply during the early growth stages when the root system is not well-developed. Also, the volume required for foliar application is low as compared to soil application. Farmers use the foliar mode of application to apply fertilizers on crops such as apple, grapes, pomegranate, and okra.
