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.
Demand for high quality food and the growing preference for organically cultivated products are the major drivers for the growth of regional soil treatment industry. The export based agriculture sector and high mechanization of the agriculture soil further propels the farmers to opt for soil treatment products in order to maintain the soil condition. The shrinking farm land issue is further aggravating the need for soil treatment product applications. Stringent regulatory structures pertaining to environment may hinder the market growth in Europe. High product innovation and investments in research and developments would pave the way for future growth.
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 and organic amendments would grow at a faster rate. 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. Environmental concerns and greater adaptability of organic farming may help the biological soil treatment market to grow.
The market for soil treatment is dominated by developed regions of Europe; United Kingdom, Germany and France are at the forefront as the industry employs soil treatment products as the need of the hour. Countries like Spain and Italy would grow effectively as they embrace the application of soil treatment products in the fields.
Europe soil treatment market is fragmented as many global and local companies are actively involved in the regional market. Players with notable market share are Monsanto Company (U.S.), BASF SE (Germany), Syngenta AG (Switzerland), Novozymes A/S and Arysta Lifescience Corporation etc. Majority of global companies are adopting acquisition strategy so as to cater to the growing regional markets.
