As per the available report about 84 Open access articles, 309 Conference Proceedings, 20 upcoming conferences, 44 Conference Proceedings, 47 Journal, 3 Open access journals has been published exclusively related to bio pesticides.
Biopesticides are certain types of pesticides derived from such natural materials as animals, plants, bacteria, and certain minerals. For example, canola oil and baking soda have pesticidal applications and are considered biopesticides. They generally affect only the target pest and closely related organisms, in contrast to broad spectrum, conventional pesticides that may affect organisms as different as birds, insects, and mammals.
Biopesticides fall into three major classes:
• Microbial pesticides consist of a microorganism (e.g., a bacterium, fungus, virus or protozoan) as the active ingredient. Microbial pesticides can control many different kinds of pests, although each separate active ingredient is relatively specific for its target pest. For example, there are fungi that control certain weeds, and other fungi that kill specific insects. The most widely used microbial pesticides are subspecies and strains of Bacillus thuringiensis, or Bt.
• The second class is Plant-Incorporated-Protectants (PIPs) which are pesticides substances that plants produce from genetic material that has been added to the plant. For example, scientists can take the gene for the Bt pesticidal protein, and introduce the gene into the plant's own genetic material. Then the plant, instead of the Bt bacterium, manufactures the substance that destroys the pest. The protein and its genetic material, but not the plant itself, are regulated by EPA.
• The third class includes Biochemical pesticides which are naturally occurring substances that control pests by non-toxic mechanisms. Conventional pesticides, by contrast, are generally synthetic materials that directly kill or inactivate the pest. Biochemical pesticides include substances, such as insect sex pheromones that interfere with mating as well as various scented plant extracts that attract insect pests to traps. Because it is sometimes difficult to determine whether a substance meets the criteria for classification as a biochemical pesticide, EPA has established a special committee to make such decisions. They have numerous advantages such as Biopesticides are usually inherently less toxic than conventional pesticides.

Scope and Importance:
Different researches are undergoing related to Bio pesticide sustainability, Residue management, resistance management, entomology etc. The project, led by Professor Wyn Grant and Dr David Chandler at The University of Warwick, developed a series of recommendations to aid the commercialisation of bio pesticides, and provided advice to regulators, policy-makers, several major UK supermarkets, and companies developing new products. The project’s impact on bio pesticides regulation and industry was recognised in a report from the Defra Science Advisory Council. Furthermore, its findings also informed European Parliament discussions, and a new EU Directive on the regulation of bio pesticides represents a ‘seismic shift’ in bio pesticide policy Bio pesticides are an important part of integrated pest management (IPM), which aims to use complementary methods to manage pest populations at low levels, and could replace some synthetic pesticides that can harm the environment and human health.
The global bio pesticides market, in terms of value, is expected to reach 4,369.88 Million dollar by 2019, at a CAGR of 16.0 percent from 2014 to 2019. The growth of the bio pesticides market is primarily triggered by the huge prevalence of crop diseases and growing food demand in both developed and developing nations, benefits offered by bio pesticides compared to conventional pesticides, and the introduction of technologically advanced products. However, factors such as the lack of knowledge to the farmers regarding the benefits of bio pesticides and reluctance among farmers to change the existing chemical crop protection practices are restraining the growth of this market.
The Pro Bio pesticide regulations will drive Europe to grow its pesticide market while other countries will grow slowly over the next ten years. The market for pesticide is estimated to be around a 2000 million dollar market with a very rapid expansion in the near future.
