Global Microbial Agricultural Inoculants Market 2017-2021

About Microbial Agricultural Inoculants

Agricultural inoculants are microbes specially formulated for seeds or soils to promote plant health and improve agricultural productivity. These microbes, which can be bacteria, fungi, or other microbes, prevent diseases, encourage plant growth, and improve crop yield. They are available in solid, liquid, and freeze-dried forms. Inoculant standards are changing, and the frequency with which they are used is also on the rise.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global microbial agricultural inoculants market to grow at a CAGR of 10.16% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Microbial Agricultural Inoculants Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global microbial agricultural inoculants market: ABM, BASF, Bayer, DuPont, and Novozymes

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: BIO-CAT, BrettYoung, Hancock Seed, Precision Laboratories, TerraMax, Verdesian Life Sciences, and XiteBio Technologies

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The demand for pre-inoculated seeds is growing due to the advantages they offer. Pre-inoculation is the procedure of stabbing large numbers of bacteria to the seed at the processing plant prior to bagging. The pre-inoculated seeds are coated with ground limestone or other materials. The main advantage of pre-inoculated seeds is their shelf life. Pre-inoculated seeds can be stored for 1-2 years. The demand for pre-inoculated seeds is high in the US, Canada, and Australia.”

According to the report, the agricultural sector has experienced substantial development over the past few years, and agricultural production has also increased because of the increased use of chemical pesticides in addition to fertilizers and seeds with advanced traits. However, these chemicals have adverse effects on the environment and human health and cause imbalances in soil biology, decreasing agricultural productivity. Thus, the demand for environment-friendly and organic farming practices is growing year-on-year. Farmers are trying to maintain the health of the soil by using organic manure or compost instead of synthetic fertilizers.

Further, the report states that agricultural inoculants face high competition in terms of cost from other biofertilizers and fertilizers. They also face competition in terms of consistent performance from other biofertilizers and fertilizers. The performance of inoculants is often inconsistent. Inoculants are susceptible to change. However, for them to remain effective, their formulations need to stay unchanged during production, transportation, and distribution. Proper handling is necessary for inoculant formulations to remain unchanged. This is because inoculants comprise of active ingredients.
