Global Soil Treatment Market Drivers:

Decreasing per capita arable land and increasing demand for food are major factors propelling growth of the soil treatment market. As per the resource outlook to 2050 released by FAO, only 12% of the global land surface is used for crop production and there is little scope for the further expansion of the agricultural land. Hence there is pressure on the existing arable land to produce more food by using soil treatment products.

Lack of nutrient rich soil is again expected to foster the market growth. According to the 29th report published by the parliamentary standing committee on Agriculture, it was observed that the current agriculture growth rate will be unable to feed the world’s population by 2025. In India, the country needs to produce 300 million metric tons of grains against its output of 253 million metric tons in 2015. The deficit is largely driven by a decrease in soil fertility owing to over usage of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. This, in turn, has promoted farmers to use soil treatment products to increase soil efficacy.

*Definition: Soil treatment products are used to improve the quality of soil and retain moisture. These products also help to restore microbial activity and improve the content of nutrients in the soil. Some of the widely used items include soil protection, pH adjusters, and organic soil amendments.

The main aim of soil treatment is to restore the acid-base balance of the soil. It is important for a soil to have a pH level of between five and seven. If the soil's pH is higher, it needs amendments. Calcium oxide, sodium persulphate, potassium permanganate, and ozone are some of the common chemicals used in soil treatment. These chemicals can be used in isolation or in combination with other chemicals. Various techniques and procedures are utilized for soil treatment. These include chemical oxidation, bioremediation and in-situ chemical oxidation. The reagents used for these procedures are derived from dry or liquid sources. Depending on the contaminants present, soil treatment chemicals can vary.

Market Dynamics:

Increasing population, growing demand for food products, and government initiatives to improve food production are the major drivers of the soil treatment market. A wide range of products is available in the market for increasing moisture retention, microbial activity, and the nutrient content of the soil. Furthermore, change in farming practices to improve food production are further projected to propell market growth.

On the other hand, low adoption rate of soil treatment procedure is expected to hamper the market growth.
