The soil treatment market was valued at US$40.326 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.56% to make US$71.647 billion in 2029 during the forecast period.

Soil treatment is a collective set of procedures and practices that are applied to restore soil functionality or prevent soil degradation. It is a process of managing soil using different measures, to fix soil compaction, weak fertility, erosion, pollution, and nutrient exhaustion. Biological treatment like bacteria decomposition is used more frequently for cleaning the soil which might have been contaminated by organic materials like gasoline or oil. Although biological therapy is cost-effective, it takes a long time to complete, perhaps from a few weeks to several months.

The soil treatment market is being surged by growing awareness of sustainable farming methods, increased demand for improved agricultural production, and government measures to promote soil health. Furthermore, the increasing requirement to rehabilitate polluted soils and address environmental issues drives market expansion, encouraging innovation in soil treatment technology.

Market Drivers:

  • Increasing awareness among small farmers is anticipated to fuel the market.

Automation is essential in every business including agriculture. Fresh hybrid seeds are created and used each year owing to this. Numerous experts have conducted various studies to discover new opportunities for small farms and seed producers in the developing world, and they ultimately concluded that soil remediation is the best course of action. For the agriculture industry to provide enough food, feed, fuel, and fiber, hybrid plants are essential. This issue may be resolved using a straightforward soil remediation process. These factors influence the soil treatment industry.

  • Decreasing arable land and increasing demand for food might impact the soil treatment market.

The global population, which reached 8 billion in the middle of November 2022, is estimated to rise by another 2 billion people around 30 years with an expected 9.7 billion people in 2050. On the other hand, there is a decrease in the available arable land in the main agricultural countries which is caused by industrialization and urbanization.

For instance, as per the FAO resources predictions for the year 2050, agriculture will use only 12% of the total land area for crop production, in addition, there is very little chance for more agricultural land to grow. This pressure leads to the use of soil treatment chemicals to raise yield on the current cropland.

  • Micronutrient deficiency in soil is predicted to upsurge the market.

Micronutrient malnutrition is seen to be widespread around the globe, which includes Asia-Pacific as one of the largest affected regions. About one-third of it is iron deficient and more than half is zinc deficient. These soils are used for growing cereal crops.

Zinc, boron, and other micronutrients are all suspected of being somewhat deficient in about 40–55 to 25–35 to 10-15 percent of soils, respectively. The plants are not responding to fertilizers and insecticides because of extreme micronutrient deficiencies in the soil which tends to lead to low crop output. Ph adjusters can be used to solve this problem, which will impact the soil treatment market size.

  • Innovation in soil protection technology might upsurge the market.

Soil treatment market-oriented growth is rooted in the increasing knowledge of people about soil-deterioration issues and the related government programs to treat soils that are contaminated and polluted. Technologies for treating soil are intended to enhance soil quality by reviving microbial activity, regulating the pH level, enhancing moisture retention, and minimizing compaction. Additionally, the advantages of soil treatment methods, such as increased nutrients and better soil physical and biological components, are driving the soil treatment industry's expansion.

In emerging countries with active industrialization, methods to increase aeration and land fertility are considerably boosting the soil treatment market growth.

  • Growing focus of key manufacturers on product innovation.

The industry under study is very fragmented, with many different companies competing for soil treatment market share. However, certain businesses are working to increase their market share, including Bayer Crop Science AG, Corteva AgriScience, BASF SE, Syngenta, and AMVAC Chemical Corporation.

Companies are focused on strategic mergers and acquisitions and growth as their primary implemented tactics in the global soil treatment market in addition to the introduction of cutting-edge products. Investments in R&D and creating unique product portfolios will probably be essential tactics in the upcoming years, along with innovations and expansions.

North America is anticipated to dominate the soil treatment market.

In the North American countries including the US, Canada, and Mexico, there has been a growing awareness about polluted soil and the various methods of cleaning that soil which in return has led to an increase in soil treatment market size. For instance, the MAAVi Innovation hub of Kimitec and UPL, a pioneer in sustainable agriculture solutions across the U.S., was launched in May 2022 and has led to the provision of various specialized bio-solution solutions technology, mostly geared towards soil treatments and amendments.

Canada is predicted to hold a significant market share in the North American region.

The amount and complexity of organisms found in Canadian soil, according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), make it practically difficult for soils to be devoid of such pests. To reduce the chances of the entry and spread of important soil-borne quarantine pests into Canada, strong phytosanitary regulations regarding soil are thus required.

Furthermore, the Government of Canada plans to invest USD 162.6 million in the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) for the next 5 years, as well as USD 40 million each year. As a result, the country has a sufficient level of knowledge regarding soil remediation, which is boosting the soil treatment market in the nation.

Soil Treatment Products:

  • IXPER solution, Solvay's soil remediation solutions help and improve the repair of several ecosystems. In addition, IXPER® solution increases soil oxygen levels, which promotes the growth of microorganisms.
  • MARITIME offered by Loveland Agri Products is a biologically extracted kelp solution that is very soluble. By enhancing soil microbiota, enhancing plant vigor, and assisting plant response to stress, MARITIME supports a balanced crop nutrition system.

Key Developments:

  • In October 2023, Englobe, a global leader in contaminated soil treatment and processing, announced cooperation with OPTEL to ensure full regulatory traceability of its soils at its many facilities around the world. OPTEL's Optchain™ solution enables Englobe's subsidiaries in Canada, France, and the United Kingdom to digitize operations and send contaminated soil transport and treatment information to government bodies following local regulations.
  • In September 2022, FMC India, an agricultural sciences firm, announced the addition of three new products to help Indian farmers achieve higher yields via high-quality crops and healthier soil.
  • In June 2022, together with Groundwork BioAg, a leading worldwide bio-agriculture firm, ADAMA developed TORMOS, a cost-efficient mycorrhizal soil treatment solution for improving crop output and soil health.
  • In May 2022, Syngenta Crop Protection's Seedcare division introduced VICTRATO®, a revolutionary technology that combines nematode and disease management for producers aiming to improve crop quality and production while also supporting soil health in the long run.
