Report Highlights

  • On the basis of active ingredients, acid-based active ingredients segment holds the largest market share in the global biostimulant market. This is due to the growing demand for these compounds, which are in great demand due to their capacity to promote plant strength and sustainability. They are also financially feasible.
  • On the basis of crop type, row crops and cereals segment hold the largest market share in the global biostimulant market. Row crops are grown on wide swaths of land around the world and provide valuable expansion opportunities for enterprises. In row crops and cereals, the principal biostimulants include polyamines, amino acids, and Indole 3 acetic acid. It helps remove various barriers to cell development and division.
  • On the basis of application, foliar treatment segment holds the largest market share in the global biostimulant market. This is owing to the benefits of foliar treatment, which include increased cellular activity and faster nutrient absorption. Biostimulants are sprayed directly on plant leaves to aid in the quick absorption of nutrients from the surface.

Market Dynamics


Technological developments

The key market players are adopting new and innovative technologies for the development of biostimulants market. The key market players can generate new products in the biostimulants category as a result of technological advancement. As a result, technological developments is driving the growth of global biostimulants market. 


Use of low quality biostimulant products

The proliferation of low-quality items is due to a lack of openness in patent security regulations in many nations. The farmers are attracted to these goods because of their low prices from small scale local market players, which is hindering the growth of global biostimulant market. 


Growing demand for sustainable agriculture

Nowadays, agricultural producers must develop strategies to improve their efficiency and effectiveness. The biostimulants can help to solve this problem in the long run by providing stress resistance and so boosting plant development. In addition, the growing demand for organic food products is also driving demand for sustainable agriculture. As a result, growing demand for sustainable agriculture is supporting the expansion of worldwide biostimulant market. 


Lack of favorable government regulations

The biostimulants are not yet categorized as a distinct segment with a globally agreed upon classification. As there is no enough regulatory structure in place, numerous problematic products are manufactured and sold in the global market. This has an even greater impact on the worldwide acceptance of biostimulants. Thus, this factor is a major challenge for expansion of global biostimulant market.
