Insect growth regulators (IGRs) are insecticides that halt and slow down the process of an insect’s maturation. These regulators are extensively used by farmers to make their crops insecticide-resistant and develop insecticides. Thus, the increase in the number of farmers in the world is forecasted to bring lucrative opportunities for the key players in the assessment period. In a recent report published in the year 2021, it stated that in India there are almost 150 million farmers.

Market Definition:

Insect growth regulators are insecticides that mimic hormones in young insects. They disrupt how insects grow and reproduce. IGRs can control many types of insects including fleas, cockroaches, and mosquitos. Although they are rarely fatal for adult insects, they can prevent reproduction, egg-hatch, and molting from one stage to the next. Many IGR products are mixed with other insecticides that kill adult insects. IGRs are generally low in toxicity to humans. IGRs affect certain hormones in insects, which humans don’t have. They do not kill insects immediately, but they can stop a pest population from reproducing until all of the pests have died.

Global Insect Growth Regulator Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Proliferation of World Population – As the world is witnessing the rapid swelling of the population, the demand for organic and hygienic food has also increased considerably. In order to balance the demand and supply equation, the utilization of insect growth regulators is projected to rise. As per the World Bank, the global population stood at 7.84 billion in 2021. Furthermore, the United Nations stated that the global population is estimated to rise to 9.8 billion in 2050 and 11.2 billion in 2100.


  • Rise in Demand of Food Products – Hunger is a common phenomenon experienced with a lack of food. With the swelling of the population, it is anticipated that to avoid hunger, the demand for food products has increased notably. This trend is expected to increase the sales of insect growth regulators for the production of agricultural products. The global cereal food demand is predicted to be approximately 10,000 million tons by 2030 and grow at a steady pace to reach 15,000 million tons by 2050.
  • Growth in Food Production – The latest statistics reveal that the production of food grains in India rose by almost 6 million tons in the years 2021-22 to approximately 320 million tons.
  • Expansion of the Agricultural Industry – Agriculture, food, and the related industries in the United States region contributed almost USD 1.060 trillion to the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP) in the year 2020.


  • Harmful Effect on Environment
  • Lack of Regulatory Standards
  • Additional Expenses Incurred in Production Process

The insect growth regulator market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into agriculture & gardens, commercial pest control, livestock pest control, and others. Out of these, the agriculture & gardens segment is anticipated to garner the highest market share by 2033. The large employment rate in the agricultural sector is predicted to be the primary driver for the segment's growth in the forecast period. The World Bank stated that employment in agriculture accounted for at least 27% of the total employment in 2019.

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth


The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Program), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favorable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labor as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.
