Soil treatment in modern day agriculture mainly denotes to nutritional management that improves the fertility of the soil and amount of organic matter content that improves the soil structure and function. As a whole, soil treatment acts as a versatile solution for many field problems as it impacts the soil structure, nutritional profile and biodiversity.
Rising concern over food security, increasing demand for organic food and evolving agricultural practices are the major drivers helping the soil treatment market to grow effectively. The high population growth in the region, growing demand in the advent of shrinking farm lands in the region is further aggravating the need for soil treatment product applications. Unclear regulatory environment pertaining to soil treatment product applications and less awareness among farming community regarding soil treatment make the growth difficult to an extent. Emerging markets and untapped countries of Asia-Pacific would provide the future growth opportunity for the industry.
On the basis of product types, soil treatment market is segmented into Organic Amendments, PH Adjusters and Soil Protection products. Soil protection products have the majority of the market share in Asia-Pacific. Soil protection product demand is led by weed control segment followed by pest control products. Several technologies are employed for soil treatment depending on the requirements and soil topography namely- physiochemical, biochemical and thermal treatments; physiochemical treatment is the most sought after process in this case.
Asia-Pacific market is the third largest market for soil treatment and possesses the fastest growth rate globally. Agriculture based countries like China and India are leading the market place regionally. The soil treatment market in China is largely driven by organic amendment products and weed control products specifically.
Asia-Pacific soil treatment market possesses fragmented structure as many global and local companies are actively involved in the regional market. The main players in the Asia-Pacific soil treatment market are Wynca Chemical, BASF SE (Germany), Syngenta AG (Switzerland), Dupont and Arysta Lifescience Corporation etc. Majority of global companies are adopting acquisition strategy so as to cater to the growing regional markets. Product innovation is taken up as a long term strategy for many market leaders.
