Biologicals Innovation

14 September 2021

Innovation in the Biologicals Segment The rate of new product introductions in the biologicals sector has exceeded that for conventional CP products for 20 out of the last 30 years. As a result,there are now more biological products on the market (>1000) than there are conventional CP products (ca. 600).

ANNUAL NEW PRODUCT INTRODUCTIONS: BIOLOGICALS VS. CONVENTIONAL CP

A major reason for this is the lower cost of developing biologicals. Regulatory hurdles are often lower and in the case of bio-stimulants no efficacy data is required in many jurisdictions. Technological advances in formulation have also played a part1. In terms of the products launched over the past 4 years (see table below), the majority of activity has been in microbial biocontrol, with an increasing contribution from bionematicides to combat a growing resistance problem and this presents a significant market opportunity. New bioacaricides have been launched in F&V markets. Increasing commercial activity is evident for the phage and virus classes.
