The global agricultural biologicals market reached a value of US$ 8.1 Billion in 2020. Agricultural biologicals are plant protection products derived from organic matter, such as microorganisms, insects and from plant or animal extracts. They are applied to the soil for protecting crops from pests, weeds, diseases, and to enhance their yield by improving nutrient uptake. Besides this, they assist in residue and resistance management, restoring mineral and microbial balance, and increase the carbon levels and water holding capacity of the soil. Nowadays, agricultural biologicals are used as an integral part of integrated pest management (IPM) to maintain a balance between the physical, biological and chemical aspects of the soil.

With the rapidly growing population, there is a significant scarcity of arable land and a simultaneous rise in the demand for agro-based products. This represents one of the key factors influencing the sales of agricultural biologicals across the globe. Moreover, the rising awareness about the harmful impact of chemical-based fertilizers is escalating the demand for organic food products. This, in confluence with the increasing concerns for soil health, agricultural sustainability and environmental safety, is propelling the uptake of agricultural biologicals among farmers. Furthermore, several governing agencies, as well as non-profit organizations (NGOs), are encouraging the usage of agricultural biologicals to support diversity in modern farming practices. Apart from this, the versatile functions of agriculture biologicals in both organic and conventional crop production systems, along with increasing investments by the leading players in research and development (R&D) projects, are expected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global agricultural biologicals market to exhibit strong growth during the next five years.
