Peat Market Overview


Peat Market is projected to register a CAGR of 4.57% and reach a value of USD 5.34 Billion by 2030. Peat is a constituent of decayed vegetation. The texture and pattern of the deposit deeply resemble the decaying vegetable material such that it can be differentiated. The application of the same comes in different sorts and forms.


The Peat Market's major factor is raw materials and organic matter demand in the most soluble ways possible. The increasing concerns among the people regarding the consumption of renewable energy sources have driven people to the edge of using recyclable materials. The increase in the electricity consumption that keeps on increasing by the day has led the people to believe the major consequences of the same if the natural resources aren't conserved. However, certain factors restrain the growth of the same. The major drawback of the peat is that it lacks nutrients of the required quantity. Most of the time, the peat falls into the category of non-renewable resources that cannot be formed back once used up.


Covid-19 Analysis of Peat Market


COVID-19 became a major problem during the early spring of last year. It proved to be more than just another annoying virus. The fact that some people had to be hospitalized because of it made governments around the world nervous about it. They sought to contain it and halt its spread by imposing mandatory lockdowns and quarantines. This had limited effect, so they sought to open up public places and allow people to move about freely (but with some restrictions) after a few months.


The few months of inactivity negatively impacted many markets. The global peat market was one of these. People were staying inside much more often during and for many months after the height of the pandemic. They did not have as much of a need for peat because this is used when gardening and/or farming outside. Global sales slumped and many manufacturers were forced to either halt production or dramatically and drastically slow operations down.


Market Dynamics


Drivers


Another key use for peat besides agriculture is in generating energy. The high CAGR in the peat market is mainly attributed to two phenomena. The first is the dramatic increase in agricultural activity in the attempt to feed the world’s rapidly growing population. The second is the fact that many farmers and gardeners are now acutely aware of the many benefits of using peat to grow various crops.


The renewables energy market is also becoming more popular amidst environmental awareness and policies that have all but demonized traditional sources of generating energy.


Opportunities


The high CAGR in the Peat market is creating many opportunities for manufacturers. Traditional peat moss is not very value-added. This has prompted many manufacturers to develop the technologies to add much more value to peat moss.


Restraints


Peat moss doesn’t have many nutrients. It has held back growth by discouraging many farmers from using it. They don’t know how it could help add nutrients to their crops. It’s the high nutritional value of crops that helps justify farmers’ demands to sell them at higher prices.


Challenges


Peat moss manufacturers have to figure out how to create peat moss that has a higher nutrient content without polluting and/or damaging the environment in the process. They are resolving this challenge by investing heavily in research and development to develop new technologies that can make peat moss more nutrient-rich while respecting the environment!


Technology Analysis


Lambert Peat Moss is a major Canadian company in the global Peat market. It has managed to retain its superior industry position by investing heavily in research and development. Thus, it has managed to develop an entire generation of peat moss that has a much higher nutrient value.

Regional Analysis



  • The North American region is expected to hold the lion’s share of the peat market. Agriculture is commercialized and heavily mechanized in Canada and the United States of America. Small farmers and family-owned farms no longer dominate the agricultural scene. This is especially true in America.

  • Large corporations tend to own large acres of land. These comprise most farms all throughout the United States of America. They want to increase the yearly crop output by increasing the nutrition and nutrient value of the land in which the crops grow. The United States of America is currently the largest producer of agricultural products. It’s also the world’s largest exporter of crops and the corporations want to keep it that way.

  • They view peat moss as a keyway to enhance the nutritional content and value of farmland. But peat is also being used much more frequently in North America because the renewables energy industry is taking off in the United States and Canada. Many energy producers are seeking to generate electrical energy by using and/or burning peat moss. They see this as being an environmentally friendly way to generate more energy to meet the world’s growing demand and requirements for energy.

  • The Asia-Pacific region is expected to have the highest CAGR until 2030. What’s mainly driving this is the fact that agriculture is rapidly modernizing in India and China. Farmers in these nations are selling their plots of land to large companies which are then entering into mechanized and commercialized farming on a large-scale basis.


Competitive landscape


The global Peat market is very competitive despite a high CAGR. What accounts for this is the fact that many companies are lured into the market by its high year-on-year growth and the fact that they can make a lot of money in this market.


Companies are finding that they can survive only if they do one or more of three things:



  • Invest heavily in research and development

  • Enter into strategic partnerships with entrenched and successful companies

  • Merge with/acquire other successful companies.


When companies invest in research and development they are actually investing in a viable future in this competitive market. They are developing the means to develop more nutrient-rich peat moss with more innovative uses and applications. This is especially true in the renewables energy industry. This allows them to make even more money in the future by allowing them to justify charging a higher price for a superior product.


Companies that enter into strategic partnerships with other companies are able to increase their resource pools and bases. This gives them more resources to do quality research and development with. They also have more money to do the aggressive marketing that will allow them to cement their positions in existing markets and enter into new markets with ease.
