Agricultural pheromones are chemical compounds produced by insects and other organisms in the agricultural ecosystem. These chemicals play a crucial role in the communication and behavior of pests, beneficial insects, and even some plants. They are used in various ways to manage agricultural pests and improve crop yields while reducing the reliance on chemical pesticides.
According to MarketsandMarkets, the agricultural pheromones market is projected to reach USD 8.2 billion by 2028 from 3.9 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 16.2% during the forecast period in terms of value. A number of variables influence the need for agricultural pheromones worldwide. Initially, there is a global shift away from chemical-intensive farming practices and a growing emphasis on sustainable agriculture practices. Agricultural pheromones provide a targeted, all-natural pest management strategy that lessens the need for toxic pesticides. In addition, farmers are looking for creative ways to maximize agricultural yields due to the growing world population and the necessity to increase food production. Pheromones are essential for enhancing pollination and elevating agricultural output. Regulatory demands and customer demands for pesticide-free produce have also accelerated the use of agricultural pheromones as a secure and environmentally friendly pest control method.

Market Driver : Increasing demand for sustainable crop protection solutions
The thriving agriculture industry has gradually paved the way for the increased organized production of agricultural commodities products, which is, in turn, boosting the agriculture industry. The global agriculture sector actively uses insecticides and pesticides to eliminate pests and attain high crop yields. As per the FAO, at the global level, total pesticides use in agriculture remained stable in 2020, at 2.7 million tonnes (Mt) of active ingredients. The worldwide application of pesticides per area of cropland was 1.8 kg/ha. On a per capita and per value of agricultural production basis, pesticides application was 0.69 kg/1000 litre and 0.37 kg/person, respectively. However, the rising consumer inclination toward the harmful effects of insecticides and chemical pesticides on human health has compelled farmers to improve their agricultural practices. This, in turn, led to the worldwide utilization of biopesticides and the implementation of a sustainable crop management system.
