Global Microbial Inoculants Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A microbial inoculant is a substance containing living, viable microorganisms that is applied to plants or soil to improve plant growth, health and productivity. The importance of microbial inoculants lies in the fact that they can help plants overcome stresses such as diseases, pests and environmental factors while also increasing nutrient uptake and crop yields.


Bacterials are the inoculants derived from bacterial culture. Bacterials have been used as a source of inoculants for the cultivation of useful microorganisms in industrial processes and in microbial fuel cells. The growth factor responsible for their production is fermentation, which involves chemical synthesis or biological processes depending upon the type. Bacterials can be classified on the basis of their use such as food, fuel cell, animal feed and medical applications among others.

Fungal Inoculants:

Fungal inoculants are used in microbial inoculants for the preservation of works of art, antiques and other cultural heritage items. The process involves the application of fungal mycelium on a substrate to be preserved. Fungal inoculants provide an alternative to chemical preservatives as they have no adverse effects on living tissues and can also be used in conjunction with them.

Application Insights:

Cereals was the largest application segment in the global market and accounted for a revenue share of more than 47.0% in 2017. The demand is expected to be high owing to rising population, which leads to an increase in consumer spending on food and beverages, thus augmenting product demand.

The oil crops segment is also projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing largely due to increasing production of edible oilseeds such as soybean and rapeseed around the world. Fruits & vegetables are estimated to be one of the fastest-growing segments during future years due largelyto increased consumption of these products across various regions including Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa countries like Saudi Arabia, UAE, Iran etc., which further boosts industry growth globally.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to witness a rise in demand for inoculants owing to increasing awareness regarding their benefits. North America is one of the largest producers and consumers of inoculants due to presence of numerous companies operating within the region. U.S.

Asia Pacific market was valued at USD X million in 2017.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for organic food: The global market for organic food is projected to grow at a CAGR of more than 14% from 2016 to 2021. This growth can be attributed to the increasing awareness about the benefits of organic food among consumers. Microbial inoculants help in improving the quality and yield of organically grown crops, which is expected to drive their demand over the next five years.
  • Rising demand for bio-based products: The global market for bio-based products is projected to grow at a CAGR of more than 15% from 2016 to 2021. This growth can be attributed to the increasing awareness about the benefits of bio-based products among consumers and government initiatives promoting their use. Microbial inoculants are used in various applications such as agriculture, horticulture, animal husbandry, and aquaculture, which is expected to drive their demand over the next five years.
  • Growing population and rising income levels: The global population is estimated to reach 9 billion by 2050, creating an increased need for food production worldwide. Additionally, rising income levels across developing countries are leading to an increase in consumer spending on processed foods and dietary supplements including microbial inoculants.. This trend is expected fuel market growth during the forecast period..
