Global Agricultural Microbials Market
Press Release

Agricultural microbials are referred to organisms, primarily fungi, viruses, bacteria and protozoa. These agricultural microbials helps in preventing the loss of necessary nutrients such as potassium, nitrogen, phosphorous and sulphur so as to improve the soil quality. They also help to increase the crop productivity by limiting the plant diseases.

Global Agricultural Microbials Market, By Type (Bacteria, Fungi, Viruses, Protozoa), Function (Crop protection, Soil amendment), Crop Type (Cereals & grains, Oilseeds & pulses, Fruits & vegetables, Other crops), Applications (Seed treatment, Soil treatment, Foliar spray, Post-harvest), Formulation (Liquid, Dry), Geography (North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa) – Industry Trends and Forecast to 2026

Global agricultural microbials market is expected to rise from its initial estimated value of USD 3.54 billion in 2018 to an estimated value of USD 10.10 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 14.02% during the forecast period of 2019-2026. This rise in market value can be attributed to the increasing demand of organic farming practices and rising need of residue-free crop protection items.
