California Biostimulants Market: A Boon for Organic Farming

In recent years, there has been an increase in demand for healthy food that is free of toxic residues and produced sustainably and environmentally responsible. The growing awareness of the importance of nutritious food drives the increased use of organic fertilizers in the organic food sector, which is replacing conventional agricultural practices that rely primarily on chemical fertilizers. According to current polls, organic agriculture is practiced in 187 countries, with around 72.3 million hectares of agricultural land managed organically by over 3.1 million organic farmers as of the end of 2019. As a result, rising demand for biostimulants in organic farming is expected to drive market expansion over the forecast period.

Data Bridge Market Research analyses that the California Biostimulants Market is expected to reach USD 339.41 million by 2030, which is USD 179.35 million in 2022, registering a CAGR of 8.30% during the forecast period of 2023 to 2030. This is due to increased demand from various end-use applications such as seed, soil, and foliar treatment. Biostimulants are organic fertilisers that are used to nourish agricultural products as well as to increase plant growth and production. The product supports plant growth and development from seed germination to plant maturity. These fertilisers improve soil fertility by fostering the establishment of interdependent soil microorganisms that aid in nutrient transfer, assimilation, and utilization.

California Biostimulants Market

Growing demand for organic foods is expected to drive the market's growth rate

Biostimulants are composed of natural and environmentally beneficial degradable elements that have no effect on the plant's surroundings. As a result, there is a huge demand for organic farming practices. Organic foods are rich in nutrients and lack unneeded pollutants that are hazardous to human health. Organic vegetables and fruits have seen a substantial increase in demand in recent years due to their nutritious content, low pesticide use, and high sustainability. Organic farming is likely to increase faster than expected throughout the forecast period due to rising acceptance in developing nations, which is expected to supplement demand for the product in the coming years.
