Albany, NY — 02/13/2018 — Microbial agricultural inoculants are specially formulated for soils or seeds to boost plant health and to increase agricultural productivity. Microbial agricultural inoculants also known as soil inoculants and are considered beneficial for plant growth and nutrition. The use of microbial agricultural inoculants enhances the plant growth, suppresses the diseases and increases the yield and also protects the environment.
For better productivity in crops, microbial agricultural inoculants focus upon the symbiotic rhizobia that are used for the establishment of the nitrogen-fixing symbiosis with the legumes. Microbial agricultural inoculants also play an important role in the aggregation of soil and also stabilize the soil. The agricultural sector has undergone major changes in the last few years with improvement in the agricultural practices. The uses of chemical fertilizers and pesticides have undoubtedly increased the agricultural production over a couple of years.
However, indiscriminate use of chemicals and fertilizers has resulted in various environmental disasters as well as ecological imbalances. Thus this has triggered the growth rate of the microbial agricultural inoculants market. Also, the rise in demand for organic farming and other eco-friendly agricultural techniques has resulted in the positive impact on the microbial agricultural inoculants market. Microbial agricultural inoculants are considered to extend the agricultural productivity more than the application of bio fertilizers into crops.
The global microbial agricultural inoculants market has been segmented on the basis of different types, source, application and crop type. By different types, the global microbial agricultural inoculants have been segmented into plant growth promoting microorganisms, biocontrol agents, and stimulants. Plant growth promoting micro-organisms are expected to lead the microbial agricultural inoculants market throughout the forecast period, because they play an important role in enriching the soil and provide ample immunity to the seeds or plants.
By source the global microbial agricultural inoculants has been segmented into fungal inoculants, and bacterial inoculants. The bacterial inoculants have been further segmented into photobacteria, rhizobacteria, and azetobacter. Similarly, fungal inoculants are further segmented into Trichoderma Spp and Micorrhizal. Bacterial inoculants held the dominant share in 2016 and the same is expected to lead the microbial agricultural inoculants market throughout the forecast period.
Based different application, the global microbial agricultural inoculants market includes soil inoculation and seed inoculation. The global market has been further segmented on the basis of crop type namely oilseeds and pulses, fruits and vegetables, cereals and grains.
The global microbial agricultural inoculants market is mainly driven by rising demand of organic farming among the farmers. Organic farming involves the use of different techniques to achieve better crop yields without harming the natural environment. Organic farming improves the soil fertility and helps to control diseases and pests without harming the environment.
Such farming also ensures the water applied on the crops are clean. The rise in the prices of the agrochemicals and their negative impact on the crops is also providing a positive impact to the microbial agricultural inoculants market. However, lack of awareness regarding the benefits of the usage of microbial agricultural inoculants coupled with limited availability is restraining the global microbial agricultural inoculants market.
Additionally, continuous research and development of new technologies are expected to generate opportunities to the global microbial agricultural inoculants market during the forecast period. Also, growth potential from the developing regions is also anticipated to promote positive growth opportunities for the growth of the microbial agricultural inoculants market in the coming years.
