The escalating necessity to improve the yield per hectare is primed to accelerate 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 market players 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 growth. As external factors, including global warming, climatic scenarios, and land fertility, hinder the growth of plants, the demand for biostimulants has increased drastically.
 

Long approval procedures may restrain industry progression

The lengthy approval process is a major factor restraining biostimulants market growth. 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, hampering the overall industry revenue. 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.
 

Lower processing costs of acid-based stimulants to push market statistics

In terms of active ingredients, the biostimulants market is categorized into acid-based, extract-based, and others. The acid-based segment was valued at more than USD 1.5 billion in 2022 on account of lower processing costs and easy availability of active ingredients that are used in biostimulants. Acids increase the aeration & water retention and microbial capability of the soil by altering the neutralization of both acidic & alkaline soils and regulating the soil’s PH level.
 

Increasing demand for fruits & vegetables to help biostimulants gain traction

With respect to crop, the biostimulants market is divided into row crops, turf & ornamentals, fruit & vegetables, and others. The fruits & vegetables segment is likely to expand at more than 10.5% CAGR over 2023-2032, the report claims. The snowballing consumption of processed fruit & vegetable products due to fast-paced lifestyles is augmenting the segment growth. Biostimulants provide better shelf-life and early growth to improve crop quality and support fruit & vegetable production, which is slated to foster product outlook.
 

Ability to increase shelf-life to accelerate liquid form segment demand

Based on form, the biostimulants market is classified into dry and liquid. Liquid segment is expected to reach more than USD 2.5 billion by 2032. The ease of application and low labor cost of these biostimulants are bolstering their adoption. Furthermore, the liquid form has a higher shelf life & viscosity and provides temperature adaptability, which improves the nutritional elements of plants, turfs, and crops to recover from stress and enhance root growth.
 

Escalating food consumption to augment product usage for foliar treatment

Impact of COVID-19 on the biostimulants market trends

The coronavirus outbreak impacted the overall agricultural sector negatively, causing a decline in bio stimulants 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 biofertilizers to improve the nutritional quality of plants and soil.
