Convenient and ready-to-use traps are projected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period.

Pheromone traps are usually used to capture certain species of insects in stored products. A pheromone attractant is used inside the trap to lure the insects. Traps are used for monitoring and mass trapping as well. However, in the case of mass trapping, the number of traps per unit area is increasing effectively to trap more insects. Some of the most commonly used traps include delta traps, sticky traps, winged traps, and funnel traps.

By crop type, the fruit & nuts segment dominated the agricultural pheromones market in 2020.

Fruits & nuts include crops, such as apple, peach, pear, grapes, citrus, mango, and coconut. Some of the major insects that infest crops include oriental fruit borer, codling moths, fruit fly, Indian meal moths, and leafroller. Companies such as Suterra (US), Koppert Biologicals (Netherlands), and Russell IPM (UK) focus on providing solutions for insect pheromones in fruits. Research is also conducted for the efficient management of fruit pests by making use of pheromone nanogels. This technology is currently being tested for guavas. The methodology is still under trial and would be a simple and cost-effective technique if it clears the clinical trials and could significantly reduce fruit fly infestation on guavas. In most cases, dispensers are utilized for delivering pheromones used in mating disruption in fruit crops.

US dominated the North America market for agricultural pheromones market in 2020.

In the US, common pests found on fruit crops are grapevine moth, banana weevil, oriental fruit moth, and codling moth. These insects are mainly used for monitoring, mass trapping, and attract-and-kill purposes in the US. The insect pests found on field crops in the US are cotton boll weevil, pink bollworm, and southwestern corn borer. In the US, mating disruption is usually practiced in apple, peach, pear, and cotton farms to control populations of insect species, such as codling moths, oriental fruit moths, and pink bollworms. Some of the major pheromone manufacturing companies, such as Suterra (US) and Provivi, Inc. (US), have also made the US a favorable market for the utilization of pheromones.
