Biostimulants refer to microbe-based agricultural chemicals that are used to promote plant growth organically. They are manufactured using various active ingredients, including humic and fulvic acids, seaweed extracts, amino acids, vitamins, trace minerals, polysaccharides and microbial amendments. They are applied to the soil, seed or leaves of cereals, grains, fruits, vegetables, oilseeds and other plantation crops to enhance the nutrient availability, tolerance to environmental stresses, water holding capacity, metabolism and production of chlorophyll. They also increase the antioxidant activity and stimulate root development and cell enlargement in the plant.

Global Biostimulants Market Growth Drivers:

The thriving agriculture industry, along with the increasing adoption of organic farming practices, is among the key factors driving the market growth. Owing to the rising concerns regarding agricultural sustainability, soil health and environmental safety, biostimulants are increasingly being used along with organic manure to improve soil fertility and plant health. Rising consumer awareness regarding the adverse effects of chemically synthesized pesticides and fertilizers is also providing a boost to the market growth. Biostimulants have a low ecological footprint, non-toxic nature and do not contaminate the soil, which is leading to their widespread adoption. Furthermore, the rising demand for food as a result of the rapidly increasing global population, coupled with the limited availability of cultivable land, is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Biostimulants aid in enhancing the crop yield, thereby meeting the steadily rising food demand across the globe. Other factors, including various innovations in the field of agricultural sciences and extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are projected to drive the market further.
