By Crop Type Analysis

  • Orchard crops segment accounted for the largest market share in 2023

The orchard crops segment accounted for the largest share Segment’s dominance is attributable to increased demand for high-quality crops like orchards and higher susceptibility to various types of pests including codling moths, fruit flies, and peach bores. Moreover, the continuous expansion of orchard farming worldwide and growing focus of orchard growers towards optimizing their production and improving product quality, is further likely to boost segment market growth.

  • For instance, as per our findings, there is an estimated 2.2 Mn fruit orchards across the globe, with 37 Bn fruit trees worldwide. Globally, there are 53 Mn hectares of fruit tree production globally.

By Type Analysis

  • Pheromones segment held the significant market share in 2023

The pheromones segment held the significant market share. Segment’s dominance is driven by widespread use and adoption by farmers for crop security because they are produced with the help of species that can alter the behavior of other species of the same family coupled with the growing applications of pheromones in horticulture and specialty crops. In addition, the growing focus on research & development activities and efforts by key players that are mainly aimed at improving the characteristics of pheromones such as stability, low toxicity, and higher effectiveness, are anticipated to drive segment’s growth.

The allelochemicals segment is expected to grow at highest growth rate. This growth is accelerated to exponential rise in the utilization and effectiveness of these product times in controlling insect pests on weeds and field crops. Also, the rising adoption of allelochemicals as environmentally-friendly alternatives to traditional pesticides with several adverse health and environmental effects, will spur its market growth.

By Function Analysis

  • Mating disruption segment is expected to witness highest growth

The mating disruption segment will grow at highest growth rate. This growth is attributable to its emergence as a key and most effective feature to low modest pest infestations, reducing the number of mating, helping species to prevent from reproducing, and control target species. With the growing consumer awareness about the environmental as well as health impacts of chemical pesticides or fertilizers, there is an emerging trend for the adoption of products that are being developed with the help of sustainable and chemical-free practices which can be achieved through mating disruption.

The detection & monitoring segment led the market. This growth is due to their ability to enable effective integrated pest management programs through better optimizing the pesticide application periods and calculating the effectiveness of control options. In addition, the growing need for monitoring and detecting the spread of various invasive species and controlling the population of pests, are likely to drive segment market growth over the years.
