Industry Insights

The global integrated pest management (IPM) pheromones market size was valued at USD 540 million in 2016. Increasing food consumption, growing consumer awareness regarding the side effects of pesticides, and need for higher agricultural yield are expected to boost demand for integrated pest management (IPM) pheromones over the forecast period. 

Demand for food has been growing globally due to increasing population. This is expected to facilitate an increase in agricultural yield, thereby augmenting the use of IPM techniques. Over the past few years, consumption of grains has been relatively high as compared to its production, which, in turn, has resulted in a food deficit. This has increased pressure on farmers to produce more yield to meet increased demand.

China IPM pheromones market

Incorporation of IPM technology for crop protection offers a variety of benefits to farmers, the environment, society, and pest management organizations. These techniques reduce a farmer’s economic risk and promotes low-cost pest management practices. In addition, it reduces the health risk of field workers by encouraging adoption of best management practices.

IPM encourages use of ecologically-safe control techniques and thus reduces environmental risks. It protects the ecosystem and related species by reducing the impact of pest management activities. In addition, it promotes adoption of sustainable and environment-friendly pest management alternatives.

New techniques and methods are being devised to maximize production yield and reduce crop loss through improved timing and efficient IPM strategies. IPM is perceived differently by various people involved in the value chain. For instance, for farmers, it involves producing high-quality and affordable products, while for the society, it means maintaining a safe and ecologically sound environment.

Judicious use of pesticides in IPM programs has resulted in decreased environmental impact and increased sustainability. These programs are being incorporated by farmers, crop consultants, and industries into crop production systems to increase yield. The Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program (PESP), which was established in 1994, is a U.S. EPA partnership program that collaborates with the country’s pesticide-user community to promote IPM practices.

Product Insights

By revenue, sex pheromones accounted for majority of the global IPM pheromones market in 2016. Utilization of this product facilitates a reduction in use of insecticides, which is anticipated to have a positive impact on demand. The Codling Moth Area Wide Management Program established by the USDA was established with an aim to reduce the use of conventional insecticides by 80%. 

Aggregation pheromones accounted for a revenue share of 22.2% in 2016. These are extensively used for bark beetles, which can be controlled with drainpipe traps or trap trees. The ability of this product to attract both male and female species for mass trapping is likely to increase its utilization over the forecast period.

Oviposition-deterring or epideictic pheromones help females of certain species of insects avoid egg deposition on hosts that have been already utilized by conspecifics, thereby reducing intraspecific competition. However, these are not widely used owing to water solubility and high costs.

Alarm pheromones accounted for a revenue share of 9.5% in the global market in 2016. Pests produce these pheromones in response to rapid changes in the immediate environment or approaching predators. However, these cannot remove a pest from a food source; they can only deter insects from reaching that source.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the integrated pest management pheromones market, accounting for a revenue share of 40.6% in 2016. Rapidly growing population has resulted in consistent increase food consumption, which, in turn, is likely to drive the need for higher agricultural yield in the region.

U.S. dominated the North American market in 2016 with a revenue share of 75.0%. Farmers in U.S. are adopting effective pest control techniques to develop specialized crops. This, in turn, is anticipated to drive the demand for pheromones in this region. U.S. is a major exporter of agricultural products and, therefore, farmers are under constant pressure to maintain quality. Favorable government initiatives and awareness regarding benefits of IPM are likely to fuel the demand for pheromones in U.S.

Global IPM pheromones market

Europe accounted for a revenue share of 27.6% in the global market in 2016. Presence of key market players in this region is estimated to drive demand. EU derivatives established a framework for community action to achieve sustainable use of pesticides, thus making the adoption of IPM pheromones mandatory in Europe.

Asia Pacific is likely to exhibit the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Increasing awareness regarding effects of pesticides is expected to elevate market demand. China is one of the fastest expanding agricultural markets globally owing to high population and economic growth. Increasing agricultural productivity in China is a result of its adoption of the industry’s best practices, use of high-quality seeds, pesticides, and fertilizers. This is expected to result in increased IPM adoption, which, in turn, is likely to augment demand for pheromones over the forecast period.

IPM Pheromones Market Share Insights

The competitive environment in the global market for IPM pheromones is driven by innovation in technology for the use of pheromones in integrated pest management systems. Companies are focusing on product optimization to improve yield. Growing demand for agricultural crops, coupled with rising awareness regarding effects of pesticides, has led to an increase in number of companies adopting sustainable IPM programs.

A large number of companies are focusing on receiving government approvals. For instance, SemiosBio Technologies Inc. received an approval for sale of its pheromone dispenser, which helps in preventing oriental fruit moths from mating, thus protecting crops by releasing an aerosol. The Canadian government invested approximately USD 698 million in the AgriInnovation Program to boost the country’s agricultural sector and fully adopt integrated pest management systems and techniques.
