Drivers & Restraints-

Rising Concerns regarding Soil Damage Due to Chemical Pesticides to Drive Growth

Growers use chemical pesticides in order to protect their crops against insects and harmful weeds. However, prolonged use of chemicals could damage the quality of the soil. The growing concerns regarding the over-use of chemical pesticides are estimated to drive the agricultural inoculants market growth in the forecast timeline. For example, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, in 2018, the total amount of pesticides utilized by growers worldwide was 4.1 million. However, limited awareness regarding the product as well as its low shelf life is anticipated to limit the growth of agricultural inoculants.

Regional Insights-

Market in North America to Bolster owing to the Adoption of Advanced Crop Production Technologies

North America is projected to dominate the global market with USD 294.2 million share in 2019. High cultivation of crops that consume high amounts of inoculant, such as soybean, canola, and corn, in major countries including the U.S. and Canada is one of the major factors driving the growth in the region. In addition, faster adoption of the latest technology in the region to improve crop productivity is set to further strengthen the demand.

The market in South America is set to grow at the fastest CAGR in the forecast timeframe. Large application of inoculants in major countries including Brazil and Argentina is the key factor responsible for significant agricultural inoculants market share in the region. In addition, the presence of key players is forecast to further propel the demand. For instance, the expansion of Rizobacter, the third-largest inoculant company, is based in Argentina.

Competitive Landscape-

Key Players Planning to Invest in R&D Activities to Launch Innovative Products
