The agricultural inoculants market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.6% from 2015 to reach a projected value of USD 437.1 Million by 2020. The growth of this market is driven by the increase in demand of organic fertilizers in the agricultural sector. The market is further driven by factors such as increase in organic and environment-friendly farming practices, promotion by the government agencies, and increase in demand of agricultural inoculants in emerging markets such as Asia-Pacific.

Based on types of inoculants, the agricultural inoculant market is projected to be led by the plant growth promoting microorganisms segment, followed by bio-control agents. Inoculants are used on a large scale to improve the plant uptake of nutrients, increase the efficiency of crop production, and meet the increasing demand of organic agricultural products.

Based on applications of agricultural inoculants, seed inoculation accounted for the largest market share. In seed inoculation, seeds are coated with microorganisms that help in nitrogen fixation and hence are majorly used for legumes and soybean production. Seed inoculation is the most common method of inoculation as it is easy and is generally effective under most conditions.

North America accounted for the largest share in agricultural inoculants market in 2014. Growth in the North America region is due to high rate of adoption of new technologies to increase the efficiency of crop production and minimize the cost of operations. The Latin American region is projected to be the fastest-growing market due to commercialized cultivation of corn and soybean crops. Agricultural inoculants are widely used for soybean crops and hence the consumption of inoculants is expected to increase in the next five years.

Agricultural Inoculants Market

Lack of awareness and availability and physical constraints such as limited shelf life of agricultural inoculants pose as restraints for the agricultural inoculants market. Poor infrastructure, high transportation costs, and lack of storage facilities pose a challenge for the agricultural inoculants market.

The leading players that dominated the agricultural inoculants market include BASF SE (Germany), E.I. Du Pont de Nemours and Company (U.S.), Bayer CropScience (Germany), Novozymes A/S (Denmark), and Verdesian Life Sciences, LLC (U.S.). The key players have been exploring the market in new regions by adopting strategies such as acquisitions, new product launches, expansion & investments, and agreements & joint ventures as their preferred strategies.
