The pandemic spread across the globe during 2020 and continues to impact economic activity around the globe. COVID-19 caused disruption and volatility in the global capital markets, resulting in an economic slowdown in 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic and its associated economic uncertainty negatively impacted the cannabis plant nutrients market in most regions and across a variety of customers.


Market Dynamics


The global cannabis plant nutrients market is projected to record a CAGR of 28.97% during the forecast period. Legalization of cannabis in several countries across the globe is mainly driving the market growth. Increasing application of cannabis in the medical industry is also boosting the market's growth during the review period. However, stringent government policies regarding cannabis is hampering the market growth. Also, production of cannabis compounds through synthetic methods poses a challenge for the growth of the market. Nevertheless, improving status of cannabis in Asian countries is creating scope for market growth. Moreover, increasing research and development for cannabis is also projected to propel market growth in the coming years.


Drivers:



  • Increasing application of cannabis in the medical industry


The prevalence of chronic diseases such as chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, epilepsy, spasticity-associated with multiple sclerosis or spinal cord injury, fibromyalgia, glaucoma, and many more is increasing across the globe. The increasing prevalence has surged the demand for medicines derived from cannabis, as there is substantial evidence that proves cannabis is an effective ingredient in the medicines used to treat various diseases.Moreover, the use of medical cannabis also decreases the use of opiate medication and reduces the chances of side-effects resulting in an improved quality of life. According to a study published in the Journal of Pain Home Page, a decline of 64% in the use of opioids was reported in 2016 due to the increasing adoption of cannabis-based medicines.


According to a web-based survey conducted in 2020 among the Australian population with epilepsy, 137 of the 976 respondents reported being using cannabis products for the treatment of their seizures. According to a report published by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, 87% of Australians preferred the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes, which has increased from 74% in 2019. Thus, the increasing application of cannabis in the healthcare industry is expected to fuel the growth of the global cannabis plant nutrients market during the forecast period.


Restraint:



  • Production of cannabis compounds through synthentic methods


With the increase in R&D in pharmaceutical companies, it is possible to develop cannabis compounds through synthetic methods in labs without growing the cannabis plant. For instance, STI Pharmaceuticals, a UK-based company, is engaged in cannabinoid research and develops synthetic cannabis compound in collaboration with its partners. Also, Zynerba Pharmaceuticals, Inc a pharmaceutical company is involved in the development of synthetic transdermal cannabidiol Zygel (ZYN002 CBD Gel) for the treatment of focal epilepsy in adults. Thus, the adoption of synthetic methods for the procurement of cannabis compounds is expected to be a major threat to the growth of the global cannabis plant nutrients market in the long run.


Opportunities:



  • Improving status of cannabis in Asian countries


Cannabis and its derivative products are illegal in most of the Asian countries, but the legal landscape is shifting in several countries. Despite the legal and cultural complications, some countries in Asia are potential markets for cannabis products. For instance, in November 2018, the Public Health Ministry took the initiative to reclassify cannabis and change its status from a completely prohibited item in Thailand. Thailand’s military junta-appointed parliament voted to amend the 1979 Narcotics Act, legalizing cannabis for medicinal and research uses. Moreover, South Korea’s National Assembly approved the Amendment to the Narcotics Control Act in November 2018 to allow the production of marijuana for medical purposes. The use of cannabis is illegal in Japan, but research for cannabinoids is being undertaken with about 40 farmers given licenses to grow a low-THC strain of Cannabis called Tochigi Shiro. Thus, these initiatives in Asian countries are shifting in favor of cannabis production, which is expected to create lucrative opportunities for market players in the coming years.
