Plant Activators Market Size, Business Boosting Strategies, Current Scenario, Latest Research News and Forecast To 2024

Market Scenario

Plant Activators of biological or chemical origin are substances that help in triggering the defense system in plants during biotic or abiotic stress conditions. The global plant activators market is expected to garner a revenue of USD 880 million by 2024 with a CAGR of approximately 6% during the forecast period of 2019–2024. The major determinant driving the market growth of plant activators is the significant loss of crop production due to various biotic and abiotic stress conditions such as pest attack, drought, heat, and fungal and bacterial diseases. The evolution of farming technologies, along with the increasing adoption of integrated pest management practices are also catalyzing market growth. A surge in the sales of plant activators across the globe can also be attributed to the increasing farm expenditure, especially in the developed nations.

Market Segmentation

The global Plant Activators Market Size has been segmented based on source, form, crop type, mode of application, and region.

Based on source, the market has been segmented into biological and chemical. Biological plant activators offer benefits such as improved crop efficiency, improved nutrient concentration in soil, enhanced growth and yield to plants, and effective insect and pest control. Also, they are less expensive than chemical plant activators. The price of chemical plant activators is rising due to research and development carried out to increase the arability of soil, whereas, biological plant activators offer high yield and with minimal impact on the environment. This accounts for the growth of the biological plant activators segment during the forecast period.

Based on form, the global plant activators market has been classified as granules, solutions, and powders. The use of a form of plant activator depends on the crop; however, the use of solutions in the form of foliar sprays has been increasing in recent years due to ease of application.

Based on crop type, the market has been segmented into fruits and vegetables, cereals and grains, oilseeds and pulses, and turf and ornamentals.  Cereals and grains are expected to be the leading segment during the forecast period due to the high consumption of rice and wheat across the globe.

The global plant activators market has been segmented, based on mode of application, into foliar spray and soil treatment. Foliar sprays are directly applied on to crops and are the most widely used mode of application owing to their high effectiveness and ease of application.
