CPL Business Consultants published a report on the biopesticides market in Asia, Australasia, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East. This formed part of a series which covered the biopesticides market globally.

This report is no longer in publication; however, CPL can produce an updated version on request.

In this historical report, we predicted the combined ROW biopesticides market to be $1.3b after a decade of 18% CAGR. This was phenomenal growth after decades of development. This growth has continued as CPL has observed more recently in its single-client studies on biopesticides. This historic multiclient study projected the biopesticides market in 29 countries, i.e. 14 in Asia, 10 in Latin America and 5 in the Middle East. For each, we summarised validated market data in tables along with growth rates, major players, product tables and crop land use.

CPL’s studies are based on primary data obtained from those working in the sector combined with information from our database, other studies and the public domain. We analysed these combined data to provide insight and guidance for companies interested in making and selling biopesticides. This case study illustrates the historical depth of information CPL Business Consultants has in this sector. CPL has worked on numerous single-client projects in bioprotection since the publication of this study. Please get in touch with CPL if you would like an updated version of this report.

Biopesticides Market in Asia, Australasia, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East

CPL estimated the Asian, Asian, Australasian, Latin American, African and Middle Eastern biopesticides markets as ~$1.3b at the user level. This follows a decade of growth at a CAGR of 18%.  Latin America saw the strongest growth, with a CAGR of 22%.  Asia & Australasia grew at 18%, and Africa and the Middle East at 12%. A paradigm shift beginning around 2010/11 increased growth in sales in these and other regional markets. An increase in the efficacy of biopesticides and growing consumer confidence in their performance supported this shift. All the indicators suggested that growth would continue.

Biochemical biopesticides make up 38% of all biopesticide sales outside Europe and North America, although there is considerable regional variation. In Latin America, microbials constituted 41% of sales, with most production and sales of biopesticides being undertaken by local facilities.

Across all regions, Bacillus thuringiensis products had lost market share to other microbials and chemical pesticides, but potential was noted in the underdeveloped markets of South-East Asia. We also noted substantial increases in the use of fungal biopesticides and beneficial insects in a variety of applications, particularly in Brazil and in China/Indo-China.

This volume of 502 pages included 218 tables, 66 figures and information on over 350 companies.

CPL has worked on many projects in biopesticides and has also reviewed a project in Africa. For information about CPL Business Consultants, have a look at our PowerPoint Introduction and a brochure describing deliverables, differentiators and case studies. You can also review eight case studies.
