The North American soil treatment market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7.2% during 2015-2020 forecast period. Soil treatment is a procedure that is carried out to reduce traffic and toxicity on the soil surface that helps in retaining the soil texture and nutritional properties. Soil treatment also improves the soil condition and makes it suitable for agricultural operations as it reduces aeration and water infiltration.

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. While North America is home to highly industrialized and agriculturally advanced nations like United States, the shrinking farm land issue is further necessitating the need for soil treatment product applications. While the market is showing high potential of growth, stringent regulatory structures in the region is going to impact the market growth. 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 globally and are further segmented into pest control and weed 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. However, biological soil treatment methods are gaining high growth given environmental concerns in the region.

The market for soil treatment is dominated by developed regions like North America led by United States, Canada and Mexico. More than one-fourth of the global market share is covered by North America region alone. Majority of the soil treatment market demand in the region is carried out by United States given its highly evolved and advanced agricultural industry.

Involvement of large number of players in the market place makes the soil treatment industry very competitive. Players with notable market share are Monsanto Company (U.S.), BASF SE (Germany), Syngenta AG (Switzerland), and Adama Agricultural Solutions Ltd. (Israel) etc. Acquisitions, new product launches and investment in R&D have been carried out as major moves in the North American soil treatment market.
