Key Market Insights

Biostimulants have not been recognized in regulatory till recently, which resulted in limited market penetration of the products in potential markets. This was largely due to the lack of clarity on the categorization of these products. Some of these products were classified with fertilizers, while others were categorized under crop protection chemicals. Further, as the biostimulants were not recognized by many governments, as a result, there were labeling problems for these products in different countries.

The market of biostimulants has been witnessing strong growth largely owing to the characteristic benefits of reducing agrochemical usage, improvement of crop quality, and increase in overall yield. European farmers have been at the forefront of the market adoption, where the focus is not only on increasing the crop yield but also on improving the crop quality. Some of the countries actively adopted the biostimulants at the country level, allowing the biostimulants product growth. However, most of the developing countries, especially in Central & Eastern Europe, were lagging and resulted in limited penetration of biostimulant products in the region. On the other hand, the US market has been receptive towards the biostimulants, although the absence of regulatory details curtails the market scope.

The inclusion of biostimulants within the regulatory framework will further facilitate the growth of the biostimulants market within the European Union, while other major markets are taking que from the EU for adapting biostimulants within their policy frameworks. The US market included biostimulant definition in April 2018 for the first time and currently present in draft guidance on FIFRA applicability. The European market would continue to dominate the market revenue for biostimulants during the forecast period, while Asia Pacific will project the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The US market for biostimulants is expected to gain pace from 2021 to mark double-digit growth during the forecast period.

Foliar application mode will remain the most preferential mode continuing the current trend, while seed treatment will gain attention and will be able to project a better growth rate during the forecast period. Increasing consumer demand for healthier fruits & vegetables will enable the crop category to retain the top position in the biostimulants market with the following category of cereals & grains segment.
