Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The rapid changes in the climatic conditions are acting as one of the major driving factors for agricultural pheromones industry growth. The quick transformation of the climate is directly affecting the crops as it may lead to the growing incidences of plant pests and diseases. These continuous alterations increase the vulnerability of the crops to diverse diseases and pests, which, in turn, negatively influence the production of the crops.

Consequently, these climatic variations not only impair farming practices but also reflect the downfall in crop productivity. Therefore, these factors may increase the reliance of the farmers on effective crop protection goods for effective pest prevention in the fields, which may boost the proliferation of the agriculture pheromones in the approaching years. 

Furthermore, rising responsiveness for the adoption of integrated pest management practices is also impelling the demand of the agricultural pheromones industry globally. Integrated pest management practices majorly focus on the long–term prevention of pests along with the utilization of resistant varieties, cultural, biological controls, habitat manipulation, and others. In addition, various farmers adopt pheromone traps such as board traps and tube traps for competently catching moths & fruit flies and preventing crop damages. Thus, all these activities may raise the needs of the agricultural pheromones across the globe.

Insight by Function

The mating disruption function segment is accounted for the largest revenue in the global agricultural pheromones market. Mating disruption comprises the utilization of the sex pheromone that can be either female or male. These agricultural pheromones are used to avert insects from finding both of them and mating. The accomplishment of this method is high as it has the ability to hamper the growth of the pest population. Thus, the growing acceptance of this option across the fruits, vegetable fields, and forests is contributing towards the segment growth across the globe.

Moreover, the detection and monitoring segment is likely to show the highest CAGR in the near future. This function is also penetrating for the eradication of pests from the fields. The automatic detection method facilitates the early detection and elimination of aggressive pests while ensuring the least loss of crops. In addition, monitoring is used to track the arrival of assorted pests, such as gypsy moths, black cutworms, and pink bollworms. Hence, these factors may accelerate the segment demand over the approaching years.

Insight by Mode of Application

The dispenser segment is recorded with the largest shares in 2020 and is expected to lead the agricultural pheromones market in the coming years. Dispensers are cost-effective, easy to use, non-toxic, as well as do not waste the active components are the various factors that act as a catalyzing factor for the worldwide segment demand. In addition, it also facilitates the consumption of bioactive components as per the pest pressure, which ensures the successful control of pests. Accordingly, the proliferation of the inset agricultural pheromones may cater to the segment demand around the world that leads the market growth.

The traps users segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment across the agricultural pheromones industry. It is the most approachable model of application by the farmers or end/users as it competently captures and retains insects. Moreover, it is a very effective and inexpensive mode of application, which also averts the damage of the crops. Therefore, these factors may stimulate market demand in the near future. 

Geographic Overview

North America is accounted with the highest shares in the global market in 2020 and is likely to dominate the market over the upcoming scenario. Factors such as growing penetration of the market not only in agriculture but also in forestry along within several industrial (example; pharmaceutical & food) are likely to impel the agricultural pheromones market demand.

Some of the major agricultural crop production in the region comprises grapes, cotton, corn, tomatoes, and stone fruits. Accordingly, these crops are more prone to get affected by the insect species such as codling moths, leaf miner, pink bollworm, and berry moths, which, in turn, agricultural pheromones are used for mating disruption purposes in the region. Therefore, these factors may fuel the market demand across North America in the forthcoming years.  

Moreover, Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR across the globe in the approaching years owing to the factors such as rising R&D activities in the agriculture sector along with growing cultivation of crops such as coffee, corn, and soybean across the region. The agriculture sector in the APAC has been shifting toward innovative methods and modern technological developments from traditional agriculture practice systems. Thus, these shifts may demand proficient pest control methods with updated crop management techniques. Hence, it may positively influence the agriculture pheromones to demand that creates lucrative opportunities for the market across the Asia Pacific in the near future.
