Agricultural biologicals sector have attracted significant investments (including mergers and acquisitions) and research efforts in the last decade as industry players have projected these as the crucial components in the future of crop protection & nutrition.
The factors such as increased incidences of pest outbreak, development of pest resistance to few of the pesticide products, and increased awareness & demand for a high-quality yield of farm produce have enlarged the need for crop protection chemicals. Aberrant use of crop protection chemicals has also shown negative impacts on the environment and human beings; hence it has become critical now to use them astutely to minimize the impact on non-targeted species.
On the other hand, rising awareness about pesticide residues in food has led consumers to shift towards organic food products. Even the government bodies around the world are now putting policies in place with the intention to reduce the use of conventional synthetic origin crop protection chemicals.
Currently, agricultural biologicals account for nearly 6-8% of the crop protection chemicals used globally; however, it has witnessed significant growth in the last two decades due to the large level of acceptance from the crop producers.

Agricultural biologicals are plant-derived biochemicals or naturally-occurring microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, and microbial technologies, possess the ability to protect the crops from pests and diseases and enhance plant productivity and fertility. These emerging agricultural biological products/technologies are essential components in integrated pest management concept, or these can also be used to complement the synthetic chemicals used in the protection of crops to achieve the required level of crop protection from pests and diseases.
Limited availability of quality products, low level of shelf-life of products, and weakness of the supporting policy network are some of the inhibiting factors for the growth of agricultural adjuvants market.
Multinational companies in the agrochemicals industry such as Bayer, BASF, Monsanto, Syngenta, and many more have shown significant interest in agricultural biologicals in the past few years. These companies have established their presence in the biological crop protection and plant nutrition industry through commercial collaboration and acquisition strategies.
Some of the major companies that are present in the global agricultural biologicals market are Bayer, Syngenta, Monsanto BioAg, Arysta Lifescience, BASF, DowDuPont, Marrone Bio Innovations, Koppert, Valent Biosciences, and others.

Biopesticides accounted for largest market share in the global agricultural biologicals market, followed by biostimulants and biofertilizers. The increasing area under organic farming, development of pest resistance, growth in demand for organic food products, and agriculture industry stakeholder’s attention towards the plan to use safer strategy to manage pest populations are the key factors driving the market for biopesticides.
Among sources, microbial segment accounts for the largest market share in the global agricultural biologicals market. Recent technological advancements have enabled farmers to use microbials in solving major agricultural issues such as crop productivity, plant protection, and soil health maintenance.
North America region followed by Europe are the two largest markets for agricultural biologicals at present and they are expected to account for a significant proportion of the market in the forecast period as well. Stringent regulations on the usage of synthetic crop protection chemicals to protect the environment from hazardous effects is driving the market for agricultural biologicals in North America and Europe.
