Insider's Perspective

Spanning more than 350 pages, this unprecedented Market Report offers the insider’s perspective on the Global Biocontrol Market to assist in development and execution of sound business strategy.

The Biocontrol Market has nearly doubled in size since DunhamTrimmer issued its first Global Biocontrol Report in 2019. While our 2019 report found the global Biocontrol market growing at 15-17% CAGR, we now see this market growing at reduced rate from 2023-2029. As the early adopting regions, growth rates in the US and Western EU are slowing at a faster rate than other markets. Yet despite this deceleration, there remain several countries and regions that continue to experience rapid expansion, particularly Latin America.

By 2029, DunhamTrimmer projects the global Biocontrol market will exceed $15 billion. This is an amazing achievement for an industry that didn’t reach $1 billion in global sales until 2010.

Microbial and biochemical products continue to dominate the Biocontrol market, representing over 90% of global revenue. Bioinsecticides and biofungicides are the leading use segments for Biocontrol products, representing more than 70% of global revenue. The fastest-growing use segment is bionematicides, driven largely by adoption of these products in row crops in LATAM. Macroorganisms continue to be found primarily in protected markets, but we are seeing an increasing trend for their introduction in some outdoor crops.

The 2023 DunhamTrimmer Global Biocontrol Market Report includes a one-of-kind, in-depth section Defining Biocontrol technologies. It also features a detailed look at the Trends and Drivers that are helping to shape the industry. Since Regulatory systems remain a key influencing factor on the pace of Biocontrol market development, the Report includes an insightful section on regulatory agencies and processes in key markets. The US market has benefited from EPA establishing a dedicated Biopesticide Division nearly 30 years ago, and recent regulatory reforms in Brazil have helped fuel the rapid market expansion now occurring there. Much of the slowdown in the EU remains a challenging regulatory environment, particularly for microbial-based Biocontrol products.

From a numbers perspective, data and forecasts are provided for: 5 Global Regions, 21 Key Countries, and 9 Crop Groups. Market regional and country outlooks are further segmented by 4 Product Types, 5 Use Segments, and 5 Application types.

Finally, DunhamTrimmer scores and profiles 120 of the Leading Companies in the Global Biocontrol space using its proprietary Consolidated Strength Rating (CSR) system. This scoring includes assessment of product portfolio, global footprint, innovation and disruption capacity, and top-line revenue estimates.

The Report concludes with STEP (a.k.a. PEST, PESTLE) Analysis, a Porter’s 5 Forces Analysis, and SWOT analysis.

The market data basis for this report is grounded on the same market data DunhamTrimmer has been using for the past 8 years for projects with their individual clients.

Market Projections

Our objective is to project the estimated market value dimensions, but more importantly the actual growth of the various market segments. We have taken a top-down approach starting with the overall geographic segmentation with various bottom-up checks and balances on the values by segments or from our company revenue estimations in order to accurately project the base market.   Market projections for the biocontrol market are very challenging, as over 90% of the companies are privately held with no pubic revenue data available. With DunhamTrimmer®’s sole focus on global biological markets we are very active in the bio industries working with client companies, attending global conferences, gathering data for publication in the 2BMonthly E-Newsletter and meeting with diverse sections of the industry.

80% of the global biocontrol market is found in 9 countries, therefore, the focus was more on the quantitative analysis of those countries and a more qualitative effort in the other countries. Minor countries and others have been estimated using the assumption they will develop analogous to the countries around them. This was done because the time spent on quantifying them reached the point of diminishing return quickly given their limited impact either individually or aggregately on the global market.
