The global biostimulants market is estimated to be valued at USD 3.5 billion in 2022. It is projected to reach USD 6.2 billion by 2027, recording a CAGR of 11.8% during the forecast period. Biostimulants are biologically derived compounds that help to improve crop vigor, yield, quality, and tolerance to abiotic stresses. They can be applied to plants, seeds, soil, and other growing media to nurture the plant’s growth and development throughout its lifecycle, from seed germination to plant maturation. Biostimulants have been used for many years; the industry began to gain importance among growers and manufacturers due to many factors, such as the development of new technologies, growth in investment in the industry, and lower growth rate of the agrochemical industry with the falling commodity prices
Key players in this market include BASF SE (Germany), FMC Corporation (US), UPL (India), Valagro S.p.A (Italy), Gowan Group (US) and ILSA S.p.A (Italy).
