Bacterial Biopesticides Market is Estimated to be Worth $1,438.6 Million by 2019, at a CAGR of 13.4% from 2014 to 2019

The most widely used bacterial biopesticides are Bacillus thuringiensis (also known as Bt), which comprises 90% of the Global Bacterial Biopesticides Market. Each strain of this bacterium produces a different mix of proteins, and specifically kills one or a few related species of the insect larvae. While some Bts control moth larvae found in plants, other Bts are specific for the larvae of flies and mosquitoes. The target insect species are determined by whether the particular Bt produces a protein that can bind to a larval gut receptor or not, thereby causing the insect larvae to starve. Other popular bacterial biopesticides are Bacillus subtilis and Pseudomonas fluorescens.

The global bacterial biopesticides market is witnessing a competitive environment, with firms like Bayer CropScience AG (Germany), BASF (Germany), the Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), KOPPERT B.V. (Netherlands), among others, are focusing on the individual expansions of their respective market shares. To consolidate their position in the global bacterial biopesticides market, these companies are adopting numerous market strategies including innovative product development, partnerships, mergers & acquisitions, and expansion of the existing facilities. Other than these companies, the dominance of local players also exists in this market.

Bacterial biopesticides comprise micro-organisms (bacterium) as active ingredients, which are capable of preventing pests from harming the crops. The bacterial biopesticides are widely used as insecticides to control the growth of plant pathogenic bacteria and fungi. As insecticides, they are mostly specific to the individual species of moths and butterflies or species of beetles, flies, and mosquitoes. Bacterial biopesticides have attained a niche position in the biopesticides market and is largely driven by the growing awareness regarding the hazardous impact of synthetic inputs in conventional farming, coupled with the rising population, limited availability of arable land, and growing environmental concerns. They are very effective in controlling the agricultural pests without compromising with the productivity and profitability of agriculture.

The global bacterial biopesticides market is dominated by the bacillus thuringiensis bacteria, which produces insecticidal proteins (also referred as delta-endotoxins) that kill flies, mosquito larvae, caterpillar pests, and beetles.
