Bioherbicides Market: Global Market Estimation, Dynamics, Regional Share, Trends, Competitor Analysis 2012-2016 and Forecast 2017-2023

Agriculture Microbials Market

Market Outline: Global Bioherbicides Market

Herbicide is a pesticide which is used to kill the unwanted plants. Bioherbicides are derived from microbes to prevent the growth of unnecessary plants of weed during the yield of crop. Bioherbicides are majorly derived from fungi, protozoa, bacteria, and phytotoxic extracts of plants. Bioherbicides have several advantages compared with synthetic herbicides. For instance, synthetic herbicides cause soil and water pollution and affect the human health through food consumption. Bioherbicides do not cause any harm to farmers during handling process. In addition, crops harvested by using bioherbicides are safe for consumption.

Market Dynamics: Bioherbicides Market

Increase in demand for organic products, need for higher product yield and quality with reduced chemical hazards, government initiations for the eco-friendly farming practices, and increase in awareness among the farmers about the bioherbicides are anticipated to propel the bioherbicides market over the forecast period. Moreover, due to synthetic herbicide tolerance on soybean and maize, stringent regulations posed by developed countries on importing such crops, leads to higher adoption of bioherbicides usage. In addition, advantages over the synthetic herbicides, low R&D costs, and easier residue management are expected to boost the bioherbicides market over the forecast timeframe. However, risk of secreted toxic metabolites by microbes, high cost of the bioherbicides, and lesser availability of products are expected to hinder the growth of bioherbicides market over the forecast period.
