Product types of pH adjusters such as aglime and gypsum have been in demand, owing to the increasing knowledge of farmers towards the need to correct pH levels of agricultural soil. Weed control products of glyphosate and atrazine base have also been in demand due to high yield requirements in food crops.
Hence, soil treatment will be viewed as a business opportunity in the next five years. As a result, many multinational players have entered into the production of varied types of soil treatment methods.
Soil protection products to dominate the soil treatment market
The market for soil protection products has been estimated to lead the soil treatment market in terms of value. Weed control, which is a sub segment of the soil protection market, is likely to dominate the market, and projected to grow at a comparatively higher CAGR than pest control products.
Soil protection products are likely to face stiff competition from organic amendments such as crop residue and sewage sludge as these segments have been rapidly growing, owing to environmental concerns regarding over usage of agrochemicals causing soil degradation. Gypsum-based pH adjusters may also pose a threat to this segment in the next five years.
Weed control products: The most widely used soil treatment product used globally
Weed control sub-segment of soil protection products accounted for the largest share in the soil treatment market in terms of value. However, the sub segments of the organic amendments segment are projected to grow at comparatively higher CAGRs due to increasing demand from developing agrarian economies.
Increasing usage of agricultural inputs in developed and developing countries to boost the soil treatment market
Countries in the Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East regions are prospering in terms of increasing contribution of agriculture towards GDP with the commercialization of agricultural products on the rise. The rising population levels have also created the need to ensure food security by promoting high yield production.
Increasing per capita consumption of fruits and vegetables in this region is another driver for the soil treatment market.
