Global Microbial Soil Inoculants Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Microbial Soil Inoculants are live microbial inoculants that are used to improve the health and vitality of soil. They can be used to help break down organic matter, fix nitrogen, and suppress plant pathogens. Microbial Soil Inoculants can be important for improving crop yields and helping to build healthy soils.


Bacterials are the live microorganisms used in soil inoculants. Bacterials can be divided into two categories, namely, gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.

Fungal Inoculants:

Fungal inoculants are used to increase the rhizobium population in a soil by artificially increasing the concentration of fungal spores in the soil. Fungal inoculants are also known as mycorrhizae or myxomycetes. These microscopic fungi do not reproduce on their own and need a partner -a plant- to complete their life cycle.

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 the number of farmers and thus an increased demand for cereals across regions, including Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa and Latin America.

The oil crops segment is also projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing largely due to increasing production levels coupled with growing consumption of edible oilseeds such as soybean across various regions globally including North America and Europe. Furthermore, there has been a rise in R&D activities pertainingto using MOSIS products for improving crop yield which would further boost product demand globally over the next eight years from 2018to 2030 ¢â‚¬â€œ based on current trends.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest market for microbial soil inoculants, accounting for more than 35% of global revenue in 2017. The region is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing awareness among farmers about soil health and its benefits. China, India, Japan and Australia are some of the major producers as well as consumers of these products in this region.

The demand for inoculants from oil crops cultivation is high in North America due to their extensive use across various industries including food & beverage, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. Favorable regulatory policies regarding usage of organic materials coupled with rising concerns over sustainability are likely to drive regional product demand over the forecast period.

Latin America has a vast agricultural land area that accounts for approximately 18% of global cultivated area (gha). Brazil accounted for around 33% share within Latin America while Argentina accounted 4%.

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 soil inoculants help in improving the quality and yield of organically grown crops, thereby driving their demand.
  • Rising population and urbanization: The world population is expected to reach 9 billion by 2050, which will lead to an increase in the demand for food. At the same time, there is a shift in population from rural areas to cities, which is leading to an increase in the demand for processed foods. Microbial soil inoculants help improve crop yields and enhance shelf life of processed foods, thereby driving their demand.
  • Growing concerns about climate change: Climate change has led to extreme weather conditions such as floods and droughts that have adversely affected crop production around the world. Microbial soil inoculants help plants withstand these extreme weather conditions, thus boosting crop production and mitigating climate change effects..
