Market Definition

Agricultural pheromones are chemical signals used by insects to communicate with each other. These pheromones are often released by an adult insect to attract a mate, mark a territory, or repel predators. They are also used to disrupt the mating habits of insect pests, such as aphids and moths, by making them less likely to reproduce. Agricultural pheromones are often used in combination with other pest control methods, such as biological control and insecticides, to maximize their effectiveness.

The US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) has registered several chemical compositions for use in commercial, residential, and agricultural settings. Because of their beneficial effects on health & growing popularity, pheromones used in agriculture are increasingly being consumed. Thus leading to the augmented demand for agricultural pheromones in the historical period.

Moreover, the agricultural pheromones industry has a high potential in emerging markets, such as China and India, as the climatic conditions in the Asia-Pacific region are conducive to insect growth. Other than this, the simple accessibility of pest control goods in the nations, as mentioned earlier, has boosted the size of the Global Agricultural Pheromones Market. With technological advancements proliferating within agricultural techniques, agricultural pheromones are swiftly slithering into various pest management techniques as synthetic replicas of natural pheromones, aiding aggregation or attracting insects.

Therefore, the surging inclination toward organic agriculture due to the high demand for high-value crops and integrated pest control solutions will likely influence market growth in the forecast period. The agricultural pheromones industry, however, is being severely constrained by factors like the high cost of the active chemicals used in pheromone production, the drawn-out research and development process, and the high startup and maintenance costs incurred by farmers when setting up insect pheromone traps.


Global Agricultural Pheromones Market Research Report: Forecast (2024-2030)

Global Agricultural Pheromones Market Driver:

Burgeoning Adoption of Sustainable Agricultural Practices – The relentless utilization of insecticides and pesticides to maximize crop production has amplified over the years. The increasing hazardous impact of conventional pest control techniques on human health has made farmers turn to sustainable agricultural practices in the past few years. This has paved the way for considering biological pesticides, including semiochemicals such as pheromones.

Moreover, traditional pesticides and insecticides injure non-target creatures and contaminate soil and water, among other negative environmental effects. Farmers are moving toward more environmentally friendly options like pheromones as a result of tighter laws against dangerous chemicals and more environmental consciousness. Therefore, backed by the widespread adoption of such eco-friendly techniques, the agricultural pheromones industry is likely to achieve steady growth in the coming years.

Global Agricultural Pheromones Market Challenge:

Constant Competition from the Well-established Chemical Industry – The chemical pesticides sector comprises many multinational corporations that are more well-known in their respective markets. In addition, they have efficient distribution systems that reach remote areas on practically all continents, particularly across the Asia-Pacific. As such, small retailers and shopkeepers in India are reportedly afraid to stock and sell biologicals because they believe their quality is questionable, according to the Institute of Management Development and Research (IMDR) of India. Thus, the well-established chemical pesticide manufacturers, which meet the needs of farmers with the aid of a wide range of products, are another factor in the low adoption rate of pheromones.

Global Agricultural Pheromones Market Trend:

Convenient and Ready-to-Use Pheromone Traps Gaining Traction –  Pheromone traps are typically employed to catch specific bug species present in stored goods using pheromone attractants. Other than this, traps are also utilized for mass monitoring and trapping. To capture more insects, however, more traps are being placed per unit area when mass trapping is being used. Thus, ready-to-use pheromone traps emerge as a convenient alternative to traditional ones, with delta, sticky, winged, and funnel traps being a few of the most commonly utilized traps.

Moreover, traditional pheromone traps can be difficult to set up and keep up, requiring time and technical know-how. Because pre-baited and pre-assembled traps are easier to use, especially for small-scale and inexperienced farmers, they are a great option. Therefore, the increasing inclination of manufacturers and farmers toward convenient and Ready-to-Use Pheromone Traps is anticipated to boost market size in the coming years.

Global Agricultural Pheromones Market (2024-30): Segmentation Analysis

The Global Agricultural Pheromones Market study of MarkNtel Advisors evaluates & highlights the major trends and influencing factors in each segment. It includes predictions for the period 2024–2030 at the global level. According to the analysis, the market has been further classified as:

Based on Type:

  • Sex pheromones
  • Aggregation pheromones
  • Others (alarm pheromones, host-marking pheromones, and trail pheromones)

Sex pheromones are expected to emerge as the dominant category, with the majority of the market share in the forecast period. Sex pheromones and attractants are widely used by horticulture and agricultural farmers to reduce the number of crop-damaging insects and pests efficiently. It owes principally to its extreme potency paired with insignificant toxicity. On top of that, the wide acknowledgment by regulatory agencies in several countries that sex pheromones are safe, has prompted their utilization across the globe.

Besides, the market for agricultural pheromones is anticipated to be driven by rising R&D initiatives to increase the product's overall efficacy in the coming years. For instance, the Earlham Institute in England recognizes and validates biosynthetic enzymes to produce pheromones from the Coccoidea insect superfamily. On the other hand, Aggregation pheromones have also gained traction due to their ability to overcome host resistance in recent years.

Based on Crop Type:

  • Fruits & Nuts
  • Vegetable

  • Flower
  • Others

The Fruits & Nuts segment acquired a significant share in the Global Agricultural Pheromones Market in the historical period and is likely to attain the largest market share during the forecast period. The growing export of fresh fruits from countries such as China, India, & Spain, has led to the burgeoning adoption of pheromones for fruits in recent years. In greenhouse farming, where primarily vegetable crops are grown, insect pheromones are frequently used for monitoring purposes. Other than this, the paradigm shift in consumers' inclination toward exotic organic nuts & tropical fruits is another factor aiding the growth of the agricultural pheromones industry globally.
