The market for bio-insecticides for thrips control is further driven by factors such as increasing market for biological pest controls, increasing awareness toward the impact of chemicals used for pest control, rising world population resulting into increased food consumption and demand, and the promising results of using bio-insecticides for controlling infection caused by thrips. Along with these factors, the use of biological solutions for pest controls enhances the crop quality and productivity with minimum environmental hazards and toxicity.The high growth potential in emerging markets in the agriculture business and untapped regions such as Asia-Pacific, Middle-East, and Africa provides new growth opportunities for market players.
“Fruits accounted for the largest market share in 2014 among all the crop types considered for the application of bio-insecticides for thrips control”
Fruits are the major crops types for the use of bio-insecticides followed by vegetables and flowers. Thrips affect the appearance of the fruit which reduces the commercial value of the same and thus bio-insecticides are used on a large scale on fruits. The demand for bio-insecticides is increasing in the market for biological pest control due to promising results of bio-insecticides for controlling thrips infection and maintaining the quality of the product.
“Biorationals active ingredient led the market with the largest share in 2014”
The major active ingredients used in making bio-insecticides are predators, parasites, and biorationals. The biorationals active ingredients are the highest used ingredients to make bio-insecticides due to their functional property of affecting the target pest, keeping the beneficial pests unharmed.
“North America dominated the market with the largest share”
North America formed the largest market for bio-insecticides for thrips control in 2014, whereas Europe accounted for the second-largest market in 2015, in terms of value and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2015 to 2020. The global bio-insecticides market for thrips control is segmented region-wise, with a detailed analysis of each region by studying the key markets.
