The global agricultural inoculants market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. An agricultural inoculant, or soil inoculant, is a formulation of various microbial organisms, such as bacteria, fungi, protozoa, virus and algae, that are used to promote plant growth. It is either applied on the seed or added into the soil to improve plant nutrition, crop yield and prevent soil-borne diseases. It is also utilized to promote growth in plants by stimulating the production of plant hormones and enhancing mineral uptake. Inoculants are environment-friendly and can be used as a potential alternative to chemical fertilizers and pesticides for cereals, grains, oilseeds, fruits, vegetables and silage and forage crops.
The growing agriculture industry, along with the increasing adoption of organic farming practices, represent as the key factors driving the market growth. Owing to the growing concerns for agricultural sustainability, soil health and environmental safety, agricultural inoculants are rapidly being used along with organic manure to improve soil fertility and plant health. Furthermore, increasing consumer awareness regarding adverse effects of chemically synthesized fertilizers and pesticides is also providing a boost to the market growth. The artificial additives are known to cause microbial imbalance, soil pollution and reduce the levels of biocontrol agents in the soil. As a result, there is a growing preference for agricultural inoculants that provide natural protection to the plants and soil. Additionally, the rising demand for food as a result of the increasing population, coupled with the limited availability of cultivable land, is another factor favoring the market growth. Agricultural inoculants aid in increasing crop yield, thus meeting the steadily rising food demand across the globe. Other factors, including various innovations in the field of agricultural sciences and the implementation of favorable government policies, are projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global agricultural inoculants market to grow at a CAGR of 7.6% during 2021-2026.
