Will Organic Insect Growth Regulators Bolster Demand?

Insect growth regulators are witnessing high demand in agriculture and food storage owing to their efficacy in controlling growth of pests and insects. Manufacturers are increasingly targeting development of organic and sustainable insect growth regulators, amid rising concerns regarding use of chemical regulators on the environment.

The market is bolstered by the ability of insect growth regulators to target a narrow spectrum of insects. Insect growth regulators can be used in conjunction with other pest control systems, which further intensifies its demand.

A rise in temperatures is leading to proliferation of insects and pests which in turn creates a highly conducive environment for growth of insect regulators market.Fact.MR forecasts that the global market for insect growth regulators is to expand at a CAGR of about 7% between 2021 and 2031.

Why are Commercial Food Products Manufacturers Adopting Insect Growth Regulators?

Organizations such as the FDA and Food Safety - EU commission have established maximum residual limits of pesticides in food products. Traditional pesticides such as DDT and Nitrofen have a maximum residue limit (MRL) of 0.001 µg/Kg, while conventional insect growth regulators such as pyriproxyfen and methoprene have MRL of 1.0 and 0.02 µg/Kg.

The introduction of strict regulations has made the food products manufacturers make a shift from traditional pesticides to sustainable insect growth regulators.
