Global agricultural pheromones market are expected to reach $780.3 million by 2024, rising at a CAGR of 14.0% from 2019 to 2024. Market growth is largely attributed to the efficient crop pest management offered by agricultural pheromones.
Making sufficient food available for the population has become an alarming concern for authorities while meeting the demand for food and agricultural products grown through biological means. All the regions across the globe are affected by pest infestation leading to significant crop losses. Agricultural pheromones have proven to be an effective solution for managing the pest population in both high- and low-value crops such as fruit and nuts and vegetables, respectively.
The increasing global warming, rising temperatures, and unexpected weather conditions are becoming factors responsible for the growth of pests in crops. The agricultural pheromones market has grown parallel to the decline in the market for chemical pesticides/insecticides. Generally applied insecticides, have been linked to cancers, birth defects, and learning disabilities.
Therefore, developed nations all over the world have extended efforts to prevent the excess or assure small usage of chemical pesticides in their geographic jurisdictions. For example, in March 2019, the European Union announced the ban of chlorothalonil, a fungicide that prevented mildew and mold on crops. Companies, in response, are strengthening their product offerings with new product launches is one of the most preferred consolidation strategies.
Some of the most prominent players in the agricultural pheromones market are Shin Etsu Chemicals Ltd., Suterra, Pherobank, Pacific Biocontrole, BASF SE, ISCA Technologies. The result of the emerging strategies and developments are already surging the market in the form of new product launches. Moreover, the growing market of agricultural pheromones is further expected to increase the involvement of companies across different segments of the value chain. The majority of the companies preferred entering into business expansion and contracts to enhance their presence, while the relatively less adoptive strategies comprised mergers and acquisitions, thus consolidating a small part of the market. New product launches in the agricultural pheromones industry represented a major strategic move made by a large number of companies since 2016.
For instance, in April 2019, Biobest BV launched a new insecticide based on natural pyrethins named SYPRO which has been widely used for the management of pests in crops such as tomatoes, pepper, cucumber, eggplant, and courgette.
