The global agricultural microbial market was valued at US$2.849 billion in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.60% to reach a market size of US$5.390 billion by the year 2022. Microbes live in the soil and have close association with plants and together they form microbiomel. Microbes include bacteria, fungi, virus, and protists among others. They can boost growth of the plant as by improving access to supplements. Many microbes are beneficial such as they can help in decomposition of organic matter, recycling of old agricultural material, offer phosphorus or nitrogen as nutrients and provide benefits such as heat and drought tolerance along with resistance to insects and plant diseases.

Market Outlook

The global market of microbes is being driven on account of increasing pressure across the globe for rising production of food owing to the constantly growing global population. Other factors such as requirement of environment friendly farming practices and supportive microbe’s regulatory policies further contributes to the market growth. Growing consumer interest in organic product coupled with rising consumer interest in organic products augments the market growth. However, one of the factors which restrain the market growth of agricultural microbial is their shorter shelf life.

Geographic Outlook

Geographically, North America will contribute significantly to the global growth of agricultural microbial on account of increasing demand of organic food and stringent regulations. Similarly, growing demand for food in countries like China and India, due to large population base, increases the production of tropical and sub-tropical vegetables and fruits which further stimulate the agriculture microbial demand in the region.
