Industry Insights

The global IPM pheromones market size was estimated at USD 686.9 million in 2018, registering a CAGR of 12.4% over the forecast period. Increasing adoption of pest management solutions across the globe is estimated to drive the market over the coming years. Integrated pest management (IPM) pheromones market are an eco-friendly and safe alternative for hazardous and highly harmful pesticide application technologies.

Rising demand in agriculture, owing to widespread area coverage, biodegradability, long-term effect, and non-toxins to humans, are factors contributing to market growth. For instance, ISCA Technologies has developed the Specialized Pheromones and Lure Application Technology (SPLAT) to accomplish maximum yield and profitable and sustainable yield production. The EPA has approved products by SPLAT for organic use.

U.S. IPM pheromones Market

Sex pheromones accounted for 65.30% of the total market in North America in 2018, fueled primarily by U.S. Government initiatives to enhance the agriculture sector in the country is the main driving factor. Moreover, the U.S. EPA, FDA, and USDA have pledged to have maximum percentage of the agricultural acreage under IPM and to reduce the use of pesticides.

A key trend that will drive the overall market in the years to come is surge in research and developmental activities aimed at the production of IPM pheromones. In addition, rising use of enhanced pest management tools and pest control methods to identify and extract new strains of pheromones is a trend anticipated to boost industrial growth over the forecast period.

Bio-organic synthesis of the chemical is estimated to create a major opportunity for market development in the projected period. For instance, Novagrica, BASF, and Russell IPM are key manufacturers that use pheromone application technology (PAT) to produce environmentally safe mechanisms. However, high R&D and manufacturing cost is estimated to restrain market growth over the years.

Product Insights

Sex pheromones emerged as the largest product segment in the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Pheromones Market and are estimated to continue the trend over the course of the forecast period. The segment is expected to register a CAGR of 12.7% over the forecast period as these are used exclusively for mating disruption by reducing the number of larvae on plants. Acceptance of mating disruption techniques by government agencies and growers is projected to augment segment growth. For instance, adoption of Codling Moth Area Wide Management Program, one of the first programs initiated by the USDA to control CydiaPomonella by mating disruption was undertaken with an aim to reduce the usage of conventional insecticides by 80.0% by the end of the five-year program.

Aggregation pheromones formed the second largest segment and is estimated to account for 22.2% of the total market in 2025. These chemicals are exclusively used to attract both male and female pests and kill formulations by mass trapping in integrated pest management programs. They are widely used against bark beetles that can be controlled with trap trees or drainpipe traps.

Oviposition-deterring pheromones are expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Insects, in response to approaching predators or quick changes in the immediate environment, emit alarm pheromones. However, these cannot eliminate a pest from a food source; they can only deter insects from reaching a food source.

Regional Insights

Globally, North America accounted for the largest market share of 36.9% in terms of revenue in 2018, owing to high consumption of food and ongoing technological enhancements in countries like Canada and U.S. The region is estimated to continue its dominance over the forecast period owing to rapid development of the agricultural sector and restriction on usage of pesticides, which in turn, will drive need for higher agricultural yields.

U.S. accounted for the dominant share of 78.1% in North America thanks to government regulatory bodies undertaking several initiatives to improve the agriculture sector. U.S. is a major exporter of agricultural products and the U.S. Department of Agriculture has taken up the responsibility to promote usage of the chemical over the forecast period.

Global IPM pheromones Market

Europe accounted for the second largest market share and is estimated to register a CAGR of 10.1% over the forecast period. Presence of major players in the region such as Agrichembio, AgriSense-BCS Ltd., LaboratorioAgrochem, S.L., Atlas Agro, Russell IPM, and Syngenta Bioline Ltd. are estimated to promote market growth through 2025.

Asia Pacific is likely to exhibit the fastest CAGR of 16.9% over the projected period. Market growth can be attributed to rising awareness regarding the hazardous effects of pesticides and surging agricultural activity in the region. Moreover, rising use of novel technologies in agriculture to increase yield and improve crop quality is estimated to augment demand over the forecast period.

IPM Pheromones Market Share Insights

Prominent players in the industry include Active IPM; AgBiTech; Agrichembio; AgriSense-BCS Ltd.; Laboratorio Agrochem, S.L; ATGC Biotech Pvt. Ltd; Atlas Agro; Hercon Environmental; Russell IPM; SemiosBio Technologies Inc.; Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Ltd.; Sumi Agro France; Syngenta Bioline Ltd; and Trécé Inc. These players are focusing on developing application-specific pheromones, as particular species react to a single pheromone type.

Russell IPM is a pheromones-based monitoring and control products manufacturer and has been conducting R&D in collaboration with the Department of Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA), Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP), and the European Union to develop a multi-species attractant and pheromone release control technology.
