By type, the microbial species segment is projected to be the fastest-growing in the biofungicides market during the forecast period

Microbial biofungicides are more efficient in terms of their mode of action than botanical biofungicides. They act against the pathogenic fungi by parasitism, antibiosis, or competition. The ease of production of microbial biofungicides is another factor that has led to an increase in the adoption rate.

By form, the wettable powder segment is projected to be the fastest-growing in the biofungicides market during the forecast period

The flexibility in the usage, longer shelf life, and affordable prices has led to a higher preference for wettable powdered form in the market. Farmers can use the wettable powder as a direct sprinkle over the soil, or it can be mixed with water, which is meant for irrigation. It can also be mixed with the seeds before sowing, or it can be mixed with any aqueous liquid and sprayed over the soil at regular intervals.

By species, Trichoderma is projected to dominate the biofungicides market during the forecast period.

The market for biofungicides, on the basis of species, has been segmented into Bacillus, Trichoderma, Pseudomonas, and Streptomyces. Trichoderma is used as the most effective strain in controlling soil-borne and foliar fungal pathogens.

By mode of application, the soil treatment segment is projected to be the fastest-growing in the biofungicides market during the forecast period

Soil treatment is the most adopted mode of application for biofungicides due to the advancements in soil treatment techniques. In addition, a majority of the fungal infections happen in the soil and root zone area of the plant, which delays the plant growth and eventually leads to plant death. Therefore, farmers adopt soil treatment solutions to ensure a healthy crop yield.

By crop type, the fruits & vegetables segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment in the biofungicides market during the forecast period

The rising demand for organic fruits and vegetables globally has resulted in an increase in the use of biofungicides in the segment. Framers are now discarding the use of chemical-based biofungicides due to the harmful health concerns associated with synthetic products.
