The Asia-Pacific soil treatment market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 9.3% over the forecast period 2017-2022.
Soil treatment in modern day agriculture mainly denotes nutritional management that improves the fertility of the soil and amount of organic matter content that improves the soil structure and function. As a whole, soil treatment acts as a versatile solution for many field problems as it impacts the soil structure, nutritional profile, and biodiversity.
Rising concern over food security, increasing demand for organic food, evolving agricultural practices, high population growth in the region, growing demand in the advent of shrinking farmlands are driving the market. Unclear regulatory environment pertaining to soil treatment product applications and low awareness among farming community regarding soil treatment are restraining the market. Emerging markets and untapped countries of Asia-Pacific would provide future growth opportunities.
On the basis of product types, soil treatment market is segmented into organic amendments, pH adjusters, and soil protection products (holding majority market share); and are further segmented into pest control and weed control products. Several technologies are employed for soil treatment depending on the requirements and soil topography viz., physiochemical, biochemical and thermal treatments; physiochemical treatment is the most sought after process.
The Asia-Pacific market is the third largest market for soil treatment and possesses the fastest growth rate globally. Agriculture based countries like China and India are leading the market. The soil treatment market in China is largely driven by organic amendment products and weed control products specifically.
