Global Soil Amendment Market to Reach $6.0 Billion by

Dublin, Aug. 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Soil Amendment Market by Type (Organic and Inorganic), Soil Type (Loam, Clay, Silt and Sand), Crop Type (Cereals and Grains, Fruits and Vegetables) , and Oilseeds & Pulses), Form (Dry and Liquid), and Region – Global Forecast to 2027″ has been added to from offer.

The global Soil Amendments Market is estimated to be valued at USD 3.6 Billion in 2022. It is expected to reach USD 6.0 Billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 11.0% during the forecast period.

Soil amendments are ingredients that are added to soil to improve its physical properties. This includes permeability, water retention, water infiltration, aeration, drainage and soil structure. To improve soil health, soil amendments are mixed into the soil properly. The types of soil amendments available in the industry can be categorized as organic and inorganic, serving different soils such as sand, silt, clay, and crack.

North America is expected to grow by 9.8% over the forecast period.

The increase in industrial events is one of the important factors that have caused land degradation in North America. Additionally, North America is home to several mines which are also responsible for barren soils and cause erosion by wind and rain. In 2017, soil is disappearing ten times faster in the United States than it is naturally replenished at an estimated rate of nearly 1.7 billion tons of farmland per year, according to the Cornell study. Additionally, it affects the economy and results in a loss of approximately $37 billion per year in agricultural production due to soil loss.

The report from the Soil Science Society of America suggests that organizations such as the Land Institute and the American Farmland Trust help farmers find cost-effective substitutes for soil conservation and encourage them to use natural soils.
amendments to revive the soil.

Organic soil amendments dominate the market with 89.7% of the total market share by value.

The transition to sustainable agriculture and the increase in the consumption of organic foods are factors that have led to an increase in demand for organic soil amendments, including polysaccharides, humic acid, seaweed extracts and biofertilizers. Key players, such as BASF SE (Germany), Syngenta (Switzerland) and Bayer (Germany), are mainly involved in the production of new biofertilizer products, which are of biological origin and do not cause any harm to the environment, unlike to their chemical counterparts. .

High rate of effectiveness in stimulating demand for liquid soil amendments.

Liquid soil amendment formulations include suspensions or solutions that contain microorganisms for the aerobic fermentation process to promote the growth of microbes. The liquid form provides various options for crop growers to mix soil amendments with insecticides, fungicides or adjuvants. However, liquid formulations differ significantly in the nature of their characteristics which influence selection, application rate, method of application and environmental impact. The liquid form is convenient to use and effective for applying soil amendments. Hence, the demand for liquid soil amendments is expected to increase in the coming years.
