Global Humic Acid Market to Reach US$ 988.4 Million by 2027, Bolstered by Increasing Utilization in Horticulture

February 15, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled Humic Acid Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global humic acid market size reached US$ 545.9 Million in 2021. Humic acid (C9H9NO6) is a water-soluble organic substance that helps plant roots to receive water and nutrients. It encapsulates essential nutrients, such as potassium, phosphorous and vitamins, which are helpful in preventing soil erosion and maintaining soil texture, pH level, and moisture-holding capacity. It is widely available in the market in various forms and is extensively utilized in fertilizer additives to improve crop fertility and enhance plant growth.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Humic Acid Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the increasing utilization of humic acid in horticulture as it enhances the cation-exchange capacity (CEC) and oxygen content in the soil. In addition, the shifting inclination of farmers toward organic fertilizers due to harmful side effects of chemical fertilizers is contributing to the market growth. Besides this, the market is propelled by the introduction of bio-stimulants that supports plant growth by enhancing their tolerance to abiotic stresses. Moreover, humic acid is also used in animal feed to maintain the overall health of animals and increase milk production. Apart from this, governments of numerous countries are undertaking various initiatives to strengthen the agriculture sector. This, coupled with the rapidly growing population, which is escalating the demand for food, represents another major growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the rising applications of humic acid in the cosmetics, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries are anticipated to propel the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 988.4 Million by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 9.60% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
