The escalating necessity to improve the yield per hectare is primed to accelerate the market growth. Recent inclination towards healthy diets has boosted the uptake of plants and vegetables, which has favored product penetration in the agriculture sector. Moreover, the strong emphasis of companies on enhancing the performance of biostimulants to improve the shelf-life of food products has aided the expansion of the customer base.

In addition, the soaring use of biostimulants to reduce abiotic stress is also fueling the biostimulants market demand. As external factors, including global warming, climatic scenarios, and land fertility, hinder the growth of plants, the demand for biostimulants has increased drastically.

COVID-19 Impact

The coronavirus outbreak impacted the overall agricultural sector negatively, causing a decline in biostimulants uptake. The halt in R&D programs and agricultural & horticulture practices due to COVID-19-induced lockdown restrictions influenced the cropping patterns, crop management, and usage of chemical inputs, harvesting, and marketing initiatives. However, in the post-pandemic scenario, the resumption of operations and the rise in food & beverage consumption have impelled the use of biostimulants to improve the nutritional quality of plants and soil, which is likely to support the biostimulants market development.

Long approval procedures may influence the industry progression

The lengthy approval process is a major factor restraining the biostimulants market size. As government bodies pay close attention to food and drug consumption to maintain the quality of the food, the implementation of biostimulants goes through a rigid approval process. Nonetheless, prominent initiatives to enhance the crop and plant nutritional value and ongoing R&D projects in the sector are foreseen to enable producers to overcome the issue.
