In this case study, a global biopesticides company engaged CPL Business Consultants to analyse the European market for Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) and other biopesticides. CPL’s comprehensive, insightful and fact-based report enabled the client to make well-informed business decisions as part of its overall growth strategy. 

Our report covered  16 major European markets and seven crop sectors for Bt, 7 target species for pheromones and 5 target groups for entomopathogenic nematodes.  Additionally, CPL reviewed prospects for biofungicides in the European market. A basic outline of the report can be found below. Please note that this outline is redacted and does not fully reflect the comprehensive nature and full contents of CPL’s report.

CPL has worked on the markets e.g. for Bt in Asia and Bt in the Middle East. Additionally we have also for example, worked on biopesticides business plans and acquisitions. You can find further examples of our work on biopesticides on this site. Please look at our PowerPoint Introduction and Brochure describing deliverables and differentiators. You can also review eight case studies.
