Acumen research and consulting estimates that the global agricultural microbials market is anticipated to reach market size of around US$ 12,500 Mn by 2027 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of around 15% in terms of revenue during the forecast period 2020 – 2027. Agricultural microbial refers to agricultural microorganisms to improve crop productivity and yield quality. Agricultural microbial inoculants have specific functions to be used and are therefore suitable for use in different crops. Micro-organisms become an important part of integrated pest control (IPM) practices, which, due to the increasing adoption of IPM among farmers, is also having positive effects upon the growth of the agricultural microbial market..
The growing food demand plays a vital role in the growth of the global market for agricultural microbials. Agricultural microbials are useful to improve crop yield and human health. Moreover, the rapidly growing world population increases demand for food and therefore encourages regional growth. The growing focus on environmentally sustainable cultivation also means that agricultural microbials are being used more effectively. Also there is a booming demand for favorable regulatory and financial policies by many governments across the world. The shorter lifespan of microbials, on the other hand, limits the extensive use of agricultural microbials. The changing atmospheric changes enhance it even further. However, the increasing use of agricultural microbials in Asia-Pacific and Latin America emerging regions leads market players to capitalize on these regions.
The lack of awareness of the benefits of using microbials and the absence of intense marketing efforts is expected to impede market growth. The low acceptance rate of agricultural microbials in developing countries in comparison to synthetic microbials will reduce market growth. In fact, the longevity and storage stability of these micro-based crops often impede their productive usage, and the poor seed survival levels of organic products typically deter farmers from using field microbes.
