Black Soldier Fly Market Size Worth $4.12 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 32.40%

The global black soldiers fly market size is expected to reach USD 4.12 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Black Soldiers Fly Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Product Type (Protein Meal, Biofertilizers, Whole Dried Larvae, Larvae Oil, Others); By Application; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2024 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

The rise in research and development activities on the black soldier fly to understand its birth and nutritional value and to explore the health benefits associated with this fly has created new growth potential for the market. For instance, a 2022 study published by PubMed aimed to identify the effective black soldier fly with substrates, including restaurant waste, fruit waste, fish waste, and commercial tilapia food, in feeding Nile tilapia. The larva fed by restaurant waste had the highest weight and length. The study revealed the effectiveness of black soldier fly as a feed in aquaculture compared to traditional commercial methods due to its nutritional profile. This may further drive its awareness among fish producers, which will fuel the demand in the study period.

This ongoing research and development activity to innovate effective insect feed for aquaculture involves the use of black soldier fly larvae in product formulations.

The increase in studies focused on finding the nutritional potential of the black soldier fly and its process of converting various wastes into nutritional feed and fertilizers is enhancing consumer awareness and driving production. A 2023 study conducted on Australian farmers revealed that the farmers are willing to adopt black soldier flies due to higher organic carbon & NPK levels. Organic farmers are willing to pay more than conventional farmers. According to the findings, farmers agreed that the BSF-derived fertilizers can increase the environmental sustainability of the agricultural sector and that they would be interested in utilizing the product. This showcases the increasing awareness about organic fertilizers like black soldier fly among farmers, driving their demand in the future.
