This work reviews the scope of the international and Brazilian inventions in the area of biopesticides. The
search for patents allowed the design of a graphical evaluation of the number of patents registered each year and a description
of the key patents published. An analysis of each patent allowed them to be classified into groups which resulted in a
better understanding of characteristics and trends in the patenting of biopesticides over the years. In addition, the similarities
and differences among Brazilian and international patents were discussed. An attempt was made to establish the reasons
for such similarities and differences, and an outline was made of the future of biopesticides.
