Biopesticides Market Type Segmentation

On the basis of the market type, the market is segmented into microbial biopesticides, botanical biopesticides, chemical biopesticides, and predatory biopesticides. Microbial biopesticides are the products derived from microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, virus or protozoa, which do control pests, diseases, and weeds. These biopesticides offer an alternative to traditional chemical pesticides. In agriculture microbial pesticides are gaining popularity due to their effectiveness, minimal environmental impact and suitability for integrated pest management. Growing demand for sustainable and organic farming is driving the demand for biopesticides market. Botanical biopesticides are plant derived products, that are used for pest management, these biopesticides are natural products extracted from plants. Extracts from various parts of plants such as leaves, seeds, fruits, and roots. Example of botanical biopesticide is neem oil, which is derived from neem tree, having insecticidal properties. These biopesticides are safer to the environment comparatively to the synthetic chemicals. Research and development in the field of botanical biopesticides are going to explore new plant derive compounds. Chemical biopesticides are derived from living organism, its examples are pheromones, plants extract like neem oil or extract from garlic. Some biopesticides are based on substances produced by microorganisms, such as a certain bacterial toxins used in pest.
