Based on SNS Insider’s research, the insect growth regulators market is experiencing robust growth due to a combination of environmental concerns, regulatory changes, the need for sustainable pest control solutions, and ongoing advancements in the field.

Pune, Sept. 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Insect Growth Regulators Market, as per the SNS Insider report, had a 2022 valuation of USD 1.1 billion. Projections suggest it is poised to reach USD 1.87 billion by 2030, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.9% during the forecast period spanning from 2023 to 2030.

Market Overview

Insect Growth Regulators (IGRs) represent a groundbreaking innovation in the field of pest management. Unlike traditional chemical insecticides that target adult insects, IGRs take a more strategic and eco-friendly approach by disrupting the life cycle of insects at various stages of development. This novel method has gained widespread recognition for its effectiveness and reduced environmental impact. Combining IGRs with other methods, such as biological control and cultural practices, can enhance their effectiveness and reduce the overall reliance on chemical pesticides.

Market Analysis

The insect growth regulators market has experienced substantial growth in recent years, driven by a combination of factors that are reshaping the agricultural and pest control industries. Growing environmental awareness and stricter regulations on conventional chemical pesticides have encouraged the adoption of IGRs. IGRs are considered more environmentally friendly due to their specificity in targeting pests while minimizing harm to beneficial insects, animals, and the ecosystem. The global population continues to grow, increasing the demand for food production. IGRs are used in agriculture to control pests that damage crops, thus enhancing crop yields and food security. The rising demand for organic food products has boosted the adoption of IGRs in organic farming. These compounds are compatible with organic farming practices as they are derived from natural sources and have low toxicity to non-target organisms.
