Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2035

Insect Growth Regulators Market is poised to cross USD 61 billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period i.e., 2023 – 2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of insect growth regulators was USD 2 billion. The market growth can be ascribed to the increasing availability of remarkably large land areas dedicated to agriculture across the globe to boost the demand for insecticides in order to protect crops from insects ruining them by controlling the insect population.

An insect's maturation process can be stopped and slowed down by pesticides known as insect growth regulators. Farmers frequently employ these regulators to develop pesticides and make their crops insecticide-resistant. There are reportedly close to 150 million farmers in India, according to a recent estimate that was released in the year 2021.

Insect Growth Regulators Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Increasing Demand for Insecticide Alternatives- Insecticides are harmful to the environment, therefore there has been an increasing demand for insecticide alternatives such as insect growth regulators.
  • Growing Demand for Food – Hunger is a common phenomenon associated with food shortages. Given the growing population, the demand for food is expected to increase significantly to prevent hunger. This trend is expected to increase sales of insect growth regulators for crop production. Global cereal food demand is expected to be about 10 billion tons by 2030 and is expected to increase steadily to reach 15 billion tons by 2050. 
  • Growing Government Initiatives towards Sustainable Pest Control - Insect growth regulators are a type of bio-rational substance that is safe for people and also works well with biopesticides. As a result, governments are taking several actions to support pest management that is sustainable and less dangerous for people. For instance, the political intention to decrease the use of conventional pesticides and promote the use of biological pesticides has coincided with recent legislation in the European Union.


  • Side Effects on Environment and Organism – Insect growth regulators can harm the reproductive organs, such as eggs that are treated with insect growth regulators may never hatch while adults might become sterile. Furthermore, it can be also harmful to the environment.
  • Lack of Regulatory Standards Associated with Utilization
  • Additional Expenses Incurred in the Production Process

Insect Growth Regulators Segmentation

Application (Agriculture & Gardens, Commercial Pest Control, Livestock Pest Control)

The agriculture & garden segment in the insect growth regulators market are expected to account for a large share of 45% by the end of 2035. Growth in this sector is attributed on the back of high employment rates in the agricultural sector, which is underpinned by the fact that a large portion of the population makes their living from farming and there is a growing need for insect-free crops. In addition, there is high demand for gardening as a notable side business across the globe, which is projected to continue to have a positive impact on the growth of the segment. For instance, in 2021, nearly 18 million US households will be found to be gardening, ranking the country among the top three gardening powerhouses.

Type (Anti-Juvenile Insect Growth Regulator, Chitin Synthesis Insect Growth Inhibitors, Juvenile Hormone Analog)

Insect growth regulators market from the juvenile hormone analog segment is estimated to acquire the largest revenue share during the projected time period. Juvenile hormone analogs (JHA) are insecticides that mimic insect juvenile hormones to prevent larvae that can damage crops, especially cockroaches, mosquitoes, and fleas, from developing into adults. In addition, the chitin synthetic insect growth inhibitor segment is expected to grow significantly due to its increasing use in pea crops as part of pest control products and services worldwide. 

Our in-depth analysis of the global market includes the following segments:




  • Anti-Juvenile Insect Growth Regulator
  •  Chitin Synthesis Insect Growth Inhibitors
  • Juvenile Hormone Analogs




  • Liquid Insect Growth Regulator
  • Aerosol Insect Growth Regulators
  • Bait Insect Growth Regulators



  • Agriculture & Gardens
