The compost market size has grown strongly in recent years. It will grow from $7.53 billion in 2023 to $8.2 billion in 2024 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.0%. The expansion observed in the historical period can be attributed to the adoption of home composting practices, the expansion of commercial composting facilities, initiatives aimed at reducing food waste, the utilization of compost in agriculture, and the integration of compost into urban planning strategies.

The compost market size is expected to see strong growth in the next few years. It will grow to $11.83 billion in 2028 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.6%. Anticipated growth in the upcoming period is expected due to the adoption of circular economy practices, efforts toward climate change mitigation, increased awareness regarding soil health, corporate sustainability initiatives, and the expansion of the horticulture industry. Key trends projected for this period encompass innovations in compostable packaging, transitioning toward waste-to-energy solutions, developments in organic waste legislation, the implementation of green infrastructure projects, and collaborative efforts focused on research and innovation.

The surge in consumer interest in organic farm goods is driving the growth of the compost market. These products, cultivated without synthetic pesticides or chemical additives, have gained traction, particularly amid the COVID-19 pandemic, as health-conscious consumers prioritize immunity-boosting foods. Organic items are perceived as superior in quality and safer for both human health and the environment. Compost plays a pivotal role in organic farming by enhancing soil fertility. Notably, in September 2021, the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) under the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) allocated over $30 million across 33 grants to support farmers and ranchers producing top-tier organic goods. Consequently, the escalating demand for organic farm products is projected to drive the need for compost in the foreseeable future.

Anticipated water shortages are set to drive the growth of the compost market in the foreseeable future. These shortages, denoting insufficient freshwater resources to meet regional or population demands, can be alleviated by compost's ability to enhance soil water retention, facilitate moisture absorption, and reduce reliance on excessive irrigation. For instance, UNESCO, a France-based agency dedicated to global peace, reported in March 2023 that 2 billion individuals globally lack access to clean drinking water, constituting 26% of the world's population. Additionally, 3.6 billion people, accounting for 46% of the global populace, lack access to properly managed sanitation services. Urban residents facing water shortages are expected to double by 2050. Consequently, the scarcity of water resources is a key driver behind the growth of the compost market.

Collaborative alliances are emerging as a prominent trend within the compost market. Various companies and organizations are forging partnerships with compost manufacturers and service providers to optimize the utilization of agricultural and household waste. An illustrative case occurred in August 2021, as the city of Durango in Colorado, United States, established a public-private collaboration with Table to Farm Compost. This venture aims to amplify voluntary curbside composting participation through robust educational and outreach initiatives. Pending the success of these education and outreach endeavors, the city plans to evaluate the potential for scaling up mandatory participation within three to five years. Table to Farm Compost, a U.S.-based residential and commercial compost service, plays a pivotal role in assisting Durango households in adopting environmentally sustainable practices.

Major players in the compost market are concentrating on the development of sustainable compost derived from organic sources, particularly by-products of mushroom cultivation, to establish a competitive advantage. By-products in this context refer to secondary materials produced during mushroom cultivation, such as spent substrate, repurposed for applications such as composting. Envar Composting Ltd., a UK-based entity specializing in organic waste and biomass recycling, introduced Spent Mushroom Compost in May 2023. This product, derived from mushroom cultivation by-products, is tailored for home gardens and allotments. Comprised of organic elements such as horse bedding, poultry manure, wheat straw, gypsum, and casing soil, it boasts excellent water retention and lacks any unpleasant odors. Offering benefits such as soil structure enhancement, improved aeration, drainage, and sustainability through waste repurposing, reduced agricultural landfill, and lowered greenhouse gas emissions, this versatile, nutrient-rich compost is anticipated to gain favor among gardening enthusiasts and industry experts.

In August 2022, Synagro Technologies, Inc., a prominent US-based entity specializing in biosolids and waste management solutions, successfully completed the acquisition of Liberty Composting, Inc. This strategic move is set to significantly bolster Synagro's composting capabilities for organics and biosolids within California. The acquisition aims to offer a broader array of choices to both existing and potential clientele within the region. Liberty Composting, Inc., the acquired company, is recognized for its expertise in providing composting services catering to organics and biosolids within the United States.
