Biostimulants Market by Active Ingredient (Humic Substances, Seaweed, Microbials, Trace Minerals, Vitamins & Amino Acids), Crop Type (Row Crops, Fruits & Vegetables, Turf & Ornamentals), Formulation, Application Method, and Region - Global Forecast to 2022
“The biostimulants market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 10.43% during the forecast period.”
The biostimulants market is estimated at USD 2.00 billion in 2017, growing at a CAGR of 10.43% from 2017, to reach USD 3.29 billion by 2022. This market has been gaining prominence among broad-acre crops to improve the crop productivity against different stress conditions such as intense heat, drought, salinity, or floods. Factors such as raw material availability and widening applications in row crops such as cereals and oilseeds for their efficient stress response mechanism are projected to drive the biostimulants market. However, factors such as different regulatory structures, uncertain climatic conditions, similar product formulations, and crop prices affect the growth of biostimulant market.
“Row crops segment dominated the biostimulants market in 2016.”
On the basis of crop type, the row crops segment dominated the biostimulants market in agricultural applications in 2016. The large cultivated areas under row crops such as cotton, corn, rice, and sugarcane in developing regions of Asia Pacific and South America are projected to drive the application of biostimulants in the row crops segment for sustainable agriculture approach.
“Foliar segment, by application method, led the market in 2016.”
On the basis of application method, the foliar segment dominated the market in 2016, in terms of value, due to its easy usage, less labor requirement, enhanced productivity, and faster rate of absorption, which are projected to drive the foliar segment in the biostimulants market.
“Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period.”
