It focussed on market size, market segmentation by the unorganised and organised sectors, by Origin (Microbial, Biochemical Biopesticides and PIPS), by India Biofungicides Market Segmentation (Trichoderma Viride and Harzianum, Pseudomonas Fluorescens, Bacillus Subtilis/ Pumilus, Ampelomyces Quisqualis, Fusarium Proliferatum), by India Bioinsecticides Market Segmentation (Bacillus Thuringiensis Variant Kurstaki, Beauveria Bassiana, Verticillium Lecanii, Metarhizium anisopliae, Paecilomyces lilacinus and Others), by Target Pests (Sucking Insects, Soil Insects, Caterpillars, Nematodes), by Crops, by Imported and Indigenous Biopesticides, Biopesticides Consumption by Regions and States.

The report also covered the competitive landscape, government role and regulations, growth restraints, drivers. It concluded with market projections highlighting opportunities and cautions.

India Biopesticides Market Overview and Size
The Indian market is home to hundreds of biopesticides that are duly registered by the Central Insecticides Board (CIB), but quality control is a major problem in most of these products.

Extensive research on biopesticides in national laboratories and State Agricultural Universities has clearly demonstrated the efficacy of biopesticides for management of pests and diseases.

Regardless of the persistent government programmes and initiatives, the consumption of biopesticides in India has remained relatively low, for several years in the past, especially since the 2000s.

The recent years have witnessed the introduction of nanotechnology-mediated biopesticides. Nanoparticles-mediated biopesticides have shown considerate potential in alleviating the problems associated with conventional pesticides.

The market has attained speedy growth over the period of six years from FY2013 to FY2019. The potential benefits of using biopesticides in agriculture and public health programmes are considerable.

This has tremendously escalated the consumption for biopesticides in the country over the years resulting in a double-digit CAGR growth.

India Biopestiscides Market Segmentation
By Origin

In FY2019 the revenue generated through microbial pesticides consisted of a microorganism (e.g., a bacterium, fungus, virus or protozoan) as the active ingredient which contributed to a majority of the proportion in the overall biopesticides market.

Microbial biopesticides are eco-friendly pest management solutions and have high specificity, due to which the share of microbial biopesticides has contributed highest share in terms of revenue in FY19.

Invertebrate pathogenic microorganisms employed as active substances in pest management are recognised as generally safe for the environment and non-target species, in comparison with synthetic chemicals.

Botanical/biochemical and PIP was observed to capture the remaining volume share in the FY2019.

By Type of Biofungicides
With improved seed vigor and introduction of systematic disease resistance, the demand for this fungal symbiont has remained high and rendered a majority share in the Indian Biofungicides market in FY2019.

Fusarium Proliferatum contributed the smallest share in terms of revenue generated during FY2019.

By Type of Bioinsecticides

During FY2019, Bacillus Thuringiensis Variant Kurstaki contributed to a majority of the bioinsecticides sold in India. Due to its high effectiveness and quicker results, it is preferred over any other bioinsecticide present in the Indian market, and thus, contributed the highest share in the Indian bioinsecticide market in FY2019.

By Organised and Unorganised Market

The country’s biopesticides market is highly fragmented with several number of small scale players operating in the space. During FY2019, the unorganised sector constituted a significant share in the overall biopesticides market in the country.

By Crops
The application of biopesticides is spread across several crops in agriculture. The share of cereals, pulses and oilseeds has been recorded the highest, and has commanded a major portion of the overall bio-pesticide consumption in India during FY2019.  Flower, spices and tea constituted the smallest market share in terms of revenue generated.

By Imported and Indigenous Biopesticides
In India, the demand for indigenous biopesticides has dominated the overall biopesticides market during FY2019. Imported biopesticides, which mainly includes Bacillus, semi-chemicals and others have accounted for the rest of the market.

By Regions and States
The consumption of biopesticides was dominated by western region in FY2019 followed by South, East, North and North Eastern region. Maharashtra contributed significantly towards the country’s total agricultural income.

The state has major area under jowar. 50.25 per cent of the total area under jowar in the country is in Maharashtra as of FY’2017.

Maharashtra has a net sown area of 17,192 thousand hectares as of FY2017. The main crops grown in Maharashtra, include rice, jowar, bajra, wheat, pulses, turmeric, onions, cotton, sugarcane and several oil seeds, including groundnut, sunflower and soybean.

Competitive Landscape in India Biopesticides Market
The biopesticides market in India is concentrated among few major players operating in the organized space. In the organised biopesticides market, about 10 major companies accounted for majority of the entire organised biopesticides market in the country during FY2018.

The organised market constitutes of the organised players. The major companies in the market are EID Parry, T Stanes, Fortune Biotech, Excel Crop Care, International Panaacea Ltd, Biotech International, Kan Biosys, PCI, PJ Margo, Prathibha Biotech and Zytex Biotech.

Price, quality and distribution network are some of the critical parameters on the basis of which companies compete in the organised segment.

India Biopesticides Market Future Outlook and Projections
The biopesticides market is likely to showcase a vibrant growth in terms of revenue in FY2023.

This growth performance has been primarily anticipated on account of growing environmental awareness and education spreading amongst the Indian farmer fraternity as stimulated by combined efforts laid by both private and public authorities.
