Biostimulants Market Trends



  • High demand for High-Value crops and organic agriculture


There is a growing demand for high-value crops and organic agriculture as consumers become more aware of the health and environmental benefits of these products. The consumers rising awareness regarding organic farming has created lucrative growth for plant-based biostimulants. Key manufacturers in the market have started manufacturing environment-friendly biostimulants products by using natural and non-harmful materials. High-value crops are crops that are typically sold at a higher price due to their unique characteristics or attributes, such as flavor, quality, or nutritional content. These crops can include specialty fruits and vegetables, herbs, and spices, as well as niche crops like quinoa and kale. Organic agriculture refers to a production system that emphasizes the use of natural biostimulants and processes, rather than synthetic chemicals, to grow crops and raise livestock. Organic agriculture aims to promote soil health and biodiversity, reduce pollution, and minimize the negative impacts of farming on the environment. Demand for high-value crops and organic agriculture has increased in recent years as consumers become more interested in the health and environmental impacts of their food choices. In addition, the trend toward plant-based and sustainable diets has also contributed to the demand for these products. For Instance, According to FiBL, Europe's total farmland's organic area share grew from 3.1% in 2018 to 3.4% in 2020. Similarly, in Latin America, the percentage of organic farming rose from 1.1% in 2018 to 1.4% in 2020. The need for biostimulants is growing as organic food items are produced without or with less use of pesticides or fertilizers. As a result, the need for biostimulants is being driven by the rising popularity of organic farming.


Biostimulants Market Segment Insights


Biostimulants Product Active Ingredient of Cover Insights


The global Biostimulants market segmentation, based on the active ingredient, includes humic substances, seaweed extracts, microbial amendments, amino acids, and others. The seaweed extracts segment held the majority share in 2022 contributing concerning the global Biostimulants market revenue. Seaweed extracts, a natural bioactive material and are available in soluble powders or liquid form derived through various extraction processes like physical and chemical methods. Biostimulants made of seaweed extracts are majorly used in plant growth and tolerance against abiotic stresses in horticulture crops. The major variants of the biostimulants are made of green, red, and brown species of seaweed extracts and the commonly used species include Ascophyllum Nodosum, Fucus spa, Laminaria spp, Sargassum spp, and Turbinaria spp among others. The biostimulant property of seaweed extracts is attributed to the phytohormones including auxins, gibberellins, ethylene, cytokinin, and abscisic acid.

Biostimulants Mode of Application Insights


The global Biostimulants market mode of application data has been bifurcated by o foliar treatment, soil treatment, and seed treatment. Foliar treatment of biostimulants is a mode of application of it over the leaves of the crops by using the liquid-based formulations. The foliar treatment is carried out by either spraying or drenching the biostimulants over the leaves and the mechanism involves the absorption of nutrients and other substance is by diffusion through cuticle, epidermal cell, and stomata of a leaf. The extent of absorption is dependent on the size and polar nature of the molecules. This has further broadened the growth opportunity for the Biostimulants industry.

Biostimulants Crop Insights


Based on Crop, the global Biostimulants industry has been segmented into o fruits & vegetables, cereals & grains, oilseeds & pulses, and others. The cereal & grains segment includes usage of biostimulants in crops including corn, wheat, barley, rice, etc., The seaweed extractbased biostimulants are used for the growth and productivity of rice crop, the regulators like auxins, cytokinin and gibberellins in seaweed extracts help in the development of the crop. Biostimulants help in developing drought tolerance in cereal crops and Ascophyllum nodusum seaweed extracts and amino acids are the majorly used products in cereal crops management. The oligosaccharide of seaweed extracts-based biostimulant stimulate the production of reductases which help in nutrient absorption from soil and translocation through the plant.


Biostimulants Regional Market Insights


By Region, the study segments the market into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Rest of the World. The Europe region has become a significant player in the global biostimulants market. The use of biostimulants in the European agriculture landscape is swiftly increasing and the European Commission with an aim to foster sustainable agriculture, uninterrupted supply of feed, food, and biomaterials has launched European Innovation Partnership for Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability (EIP-AGRI) in 2012. EIP-AGRI in line with the EU’s Farm-to-Fork and Biodiversity strategies carries out several activities which include inspirational ideas networks and investments in horizon projects. One of the inspirational ideas networks is regarding the testing of the three consortiums of biostimulants products by the INBIOS operational group. The testing includes biostimulants of nitrogen-fixing microorganisms for reduction of nitrogen fertilizers, micro-organisms that can induce resistance to the crop, and biocontrol agents for reduction of usage of phytosanitary products. Another test by INBIOS is of second-generation biostimulants which is a combination of mycorrhizal and hydrolyzed protein fungi for improving water stress resistance. The project has shown better results for maize crop and the group is planning to disseminate the use of biostimulants to farmers through course modules, thus helping in increasing the awareness and use of biostimulants. Further, the major countries studied are U.S, Canada, Germany, France, the UK, Italy, Spain, China, Japan, India, and Australia.
