The organic food industry is growing at a healthy rate owing to the increasing inclination of consumers towards organic foods because of the numerous health benefits provided by them. Additionally, according to FiBL,the research institute of organic agricultureFrance, Spain, and Italy were among the top countries having organic agricultural land. And, in 2020 the organic agriculture land in Switzerland has increased by over 1.25 million has compared to 2019. The increasing demand for organic food and agriculture is expected to drive the growth for the global humic-based biostimulants market.

However, research and development for biostimulants manufacturing involves large amount of cost. Furthermore, the approval process of the product manufactured using biostimulants consumes a lot of time. The uncertainty in the regulatory framework of biostimulants, high cost and less awareness among growers are some of the major reasons which can be restraining the growth for humic-based biostimulants market in the forecast period.

  • Increasing technological developments in the production of biostimulant:There have been numerous technological innovations in the biostimulant sector in recent years. This creates greate opportunity for manufacturers to develop new products in the humic-based biostimulant market for promoting the growth of plants in a sustainable manner. Initially, biostimulants were only used for the production ofvegetables and fruit crops, and other high-value crops such as plantation crops, and ornamentals. However, from past few years they also play a vital role in the production of traditional food crops such as wheat, corn, and rice, as an added compliment to fertilizers. Owing to the increasing usage and demand of humic-based biostimulants, there have been many technological developments in the market. For instance, the production of humic-based biostimulants chelated with NPK and biostimulant resistant to hard water. This will gain more traction in the future and drive the further growth of the global humic-based biostimulants market in the forecast period.
  • Increased productivity and yields of crops: Humic-based biostimulants helps in enhancing the productivity and yields of crops. Humic-based biostimulants are provided by various manufacturers around the globe. The high concentration of humic acid used in humic-based biostimulants increases productivity and yields. These biostimulants also activates the metabolic process of plants and seed germination.It has a high water-holding ability which helps in improving the soil fertility and plant growth. The biostimulants also helps in improving the crop quality by enhancing the color and size of the crops along with increasing the sugar content for fruits & vegetables. These numerous health benefits provided by humic-based biostimulants creates huge growth opportunities for the market for the forecast period.
