Humic-based Biostimulants Market

Market Leaders: UPL and FMC SE are Focusing on Partnerships, Acquisitions, and new Product Launches to Strengthen their Market Position in Humic-based Biostimulants Market

The global market for humic-based biostimulants is estimated at USD 686 million in 2022; it is projected to grow at a CAGR of 11.5% to reach USD 1,184 million by 2027. Humic-based biostimulants encompass active ingredients, including humic acids, fulvic acids, and potassium humate. These active ingredients are considered complementary to crop nutrition and crop protection products; hence, there is a growing need for humic-based biostimulants from growers worldwide. Furthermore, there is an increased demand for sustainably produced food, with a lesser concentration of synthetic chemicals and a higher concentration of biologicals. Hence, humic-based biostimulants are helping to address this issue sustainably by providing protection against stress and stimulating plant growth.

Key players in this market include Koppert (Netherlands), Valagro SpA (Italy), Biolchim S.p.A (Italy), FMC Corporation (US), Haifa Group (Israel), UPL Ltd. (India), Bayer AG (Germany), SIKKO industries ltd (India), NOVIHUM Technologies GmbH (Germany), HUMINTECH GMBH (Germany), and BORREGAARD (Norway).
