The global soil treatment market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 8.6% to reach the market value of 38.1 billion USD by 2020 from an estimated market value of 25.2 billion USD in 2015. 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.

The raging issue of food security around the globe, demand for high quality food and the growing popularity of organically cultivated products are the major drivers behind the immense growth of soil treatment industry. While the world population is growing at an alarming rate, the shrinking farm land issue is further necessitating the need for soil treatment product applications. While the market is showing high potential of growth, less technical knowledge among farmers about the soil treatment application and stringent regulatory structures in many regions are hindering the market growth. Agrarian economies of Asia-Pacific and South America would provide the necessary push for the future market 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.

The market for soil treatment is dominated by developed regions like North America and Europe though growth rate would be high in developing countries. Asia-Pacific would register rapid growth over the forecast period given the growing agricultural industry and increasing food demand. Soil treatment demand would be more in countries like China and India; the demand for organic amendments and soil protection would gain popularity in those countries. Many developed nations of Europe and North America would growingly use soil treatment products on the ground of increasing concern over shrinking arable land and soil health.

Involvement of large number of players in the market place makes the soil treatment industry very competitive globally. 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 global soil treatment market.
