Growing Population Biggest Driver for Agricultural Biotechnology Market

A number of factors, such as the rising need for food products, growing population, surging per capita income, increasing demand for transgenic crops, and high yield of biotech crops, are projected to drive the growth of the agricultural biotechnology market at a CAGR of 10.7% during the forecast period (2021–2030). The market generated $39,565.6 million in 2020, and it is expected to reach $106,870.0 million by 2030. Moreover, the market is witnessing a trend of the surging adoption of biofuels, which are produced from agricultural residue and crops.

One of the prime factors aiding the agricultural biotechnology market is the growing population across the globe, which leads to the increasing need for food products. For instance, as per the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, the world’s population increased to 7.7 billion in 2019 from 6.9 billion in 2010. To feed the huge population, a large amount of food is needed. Thus, advanced biotechnological tools are in demand in the agricultural sector to boost the productivity and offer substantial agronomic, environmental, social, and health benefits to farmers.

Access Detailed Report on

The technology segment of the agricultural biotechnology market is classified into genome editing, ribonucleic acid interference (RNAi), deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequencing, biochip, and synthetic biology. Among these, the genome editing category accounted for the largest market share in 2020, and it is also expected to record the fastest growth in the coming years. This is ascribed to the rising genome research and development (R&D) activities and increasing application of genome tools in the agricultural sector. Moreover, genome editing helps in growing healthier crops by lowering the risk of failure due to extreme weather and increasing the resistance to insects.

Globally, North America was the largest agricultural biotechnology market in 2020. This is attributed to the rising adoption of genetically modified crops in the region because of their several benefits over normal crops, including additional nutritional values and resistance to toxic herbicides and pests. Whereas, the Asia-Pacific (APAC) market will observe the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to the surging adoption of advanced farming techniques to improve farm productivity, so that the regional countries can meet the food demand of their high population.
