Soil Sterilizers Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Chemical Control Measures [Herbicides, Fumigants], Physical Control Measures [Steaming, Others]), By Crop Type (Vegetables, Fruits, Turf & Ornamentals, Others) and Regional Forecast, 2023-2030

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI103317 | Status : Ongoing



Soil sterilizers are used for controlling insects, nematodes, soil borne diseases and weeds in soil prior to planting crops. Soil sterilization can help to abolish the microbial population with minimum alteration of soil physical and chemical properties. The quality and quantity of the crop yield can reduce if the crop growth is hindered at primary growth stages due to insects, nematodes, and weeds growth. Therefore, the demand for chemical as well as physical soil sterilizers is predicted to increase in the forthcoming years.

Soil sterilization can provide quick relief from substance and organisms which can restrain the plant growth, as a result the crop yield can improve and, hence, the demand for soil sterilizers is increasing across the globe. The prominent players operating in the market are embarking on the mergers and acquisition and launch of new product to increase their market prominence. For instance, In May 2017, Isagro USA, Inc. launched a new biofumigants DOMINUS, to support farmers to efficiently regulate soil-borne pests.

The application of chemical soil sterilizers such as herbicides and fumigants can aid to decrease soil-borne pathogens and weed growth which is predicted to increase the demand for these chemical soil sterilizers. However, the degrading soil quality due to unsustainable farming practices and excessive usage of chemical is expected to leverage the sales of physical soil sterilizers in forthcoming years. For instance, according to Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations 33% of global soils are already degraded due to unsustainable farming practices. With a tremendously growing population and increasing demand for food the extreme use of chemical, is a menace that can affects food security by lessening crop yield and quality. Therefore, several governments are promoting the usage of soil sterilization by steaming process to reduce the chemical application, which is likely to drive the soil sterilizers market in foreseeable years.

Key Market Driver -

Increasing Adoption of Stem Soil Sterilizers

Key Market Restraint -

Strict Rules Regarding the Commercial Application of Chemical Soil Sterilizers

The strict rules and regulations about the commercial usage of various herbicides and fumigants along with the time taking and complicated new chemical soil sterilization registration process are predicted to restrain the market growth.

Key Players Covered:

The prominent players operating in the global soil sterilizers market are CM Regero Industries, Marrone Bio Innovations, Monsanto, Egedal Maskinfabrik, UPL Group, Isagro USA, Inc., Potveer Sierteeltmachines, Alvan Blanch, FMC Corporation, SIMOX, and Others.

In current scenario, chemical control measures are predicted to hold prominent share in the global market. The low price of the product compared with physical soil sterilizers and efficiency of the product are expected to attract the consumer’s attention. However, these chemical control measures have some major drawbacks and consequences for the environment in the long term usage. Therefore, various organizations such as European Union (EU) and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations are embarking on to develop policies to decrease their usage, thus, the demand for physical control measures such as soil steaming and electric sterilization options such as gamma irradiation are predicted to  increase in forthcoming years.

Vegetable segment is predicted to grow at significant pace in the global soil sterilization market. With increasing demand for high value crops and rising production of vegetable the growers are inclined towards efficient soil sterilizers to increase the yield quantity. Sterilization of soil by steam is considered as the most effective and economical method among vegetable growers as it can reduce the nematode and weed growth in an eco-friendly manner.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is expected to grow at considerable pace in the global market. The decreasing arable land and reducing soil quality are some of the major factors that driving the product growth in the region. Growing farmers inclination towards advanced agriculture practices and increasing production of fruits and vegetables within Asia Pacific is predicted to drive the market growth. The rising awareness regarding the benefits of steam sterilization and increasing government support to utilize these machines which can reduce the soil pollution are expected to bring positive change in the product demand.

North America is expected to hold considerable share in the global market owing to deep-rooted and advanced agriculture sector and high adoption of modern machineries which can help to upsurge the crop yield. These aforementioned reasons are expected to be a favorable factor for product growth. Moreover, the presence of prominent players such as Dakota Soil Sterilization Inc., Marrone Bio Innovations within the region is expected to positively impact the product sales.
