Europe Compost Market, By Product Type (Yard Trimmings, Food Wastes, Leaves, Manure, Mushroom Compost, and Vermicomposting), Application (Agriculture, Home Gardening, Landscaping, Horticulture, and Others) Industry Trends and Forecast to 2029
Market Analysis and Size
Composting is a natural process of recycling organic matter such as leaves and food scraps into a valuable fertilizer that can enrich soil and plants. Anything that grows naturally decomposes eventually. Composting gears up the process by providing an ideal environment for bacteria, fungi, and other decomposing organisms such as worms, sowbugs, and nematodes to do their work. The resulting decomposed matter that looks like fertile garden soil is the final product called compost. It is also fondly referred to by farmers as "black gold." It is rich in nutrients and thus, can be used for gardening, horticulture, and agriculture, among others.
Growing awareness for soil health management and increasing demand for home gardening are expected to boost compost demand in the market. The major restraint which may impact the Europe compost market is the availability of substitutes.

Some people did home food gardening, while others just wanted gardening to reduce boredom.

Agriculture provides food and raw material and employment opportunities to a very large proportion of the world's population.
Restraints/Challenges faced by the Europe Compost Market
- Availability of substitutes
Composting is one of the most effective ways to reduce waste and provide nutrients to plants. Though traditional composting is such a great way to reduce environmental impact, it is not always practical for everyone. If someone runs out of compost for their garden or their compost pile is still maturing, then some alternatives can be used to overcome this problem.
- Supply chain constraints due to outbreak of COVID-19
Global supply chains were finally recovering from two years of upheaval caused by the coronavirus pandemic when the Ukraine crisis hit. The further disruption in the supply chain is caused by Russia's invasion of Ukraine, which caused many companies to rethink their suppliers in this heated moment. The global supply chain was hit again by the war even before recovering from the pandemic outbreak. This war is causing supply chain disruptions in Europe and across the globe. The side effects of this war can be seen as oil and gas prices are soaring high and economic crises are about to hit the world.
COVID-19 had a Minimal Impact on Europe Compost Market
COVID-19 impacted various manufacturing and service-providing industries in the year 2020-2021 as it led to the closure of workplaces, disruption of supply chains, and restrictions on transportation. The imbalance between demand and supply and its impact on pricing is considered short-term and is expected to recover as this pandemic comes to an end. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 throughout the globe, the demand for compost has increased tremendously for home gardening as people were finding ways to spend their time indoors. In addition, compost companies introduced new and advanced compost products. Thus, even though the other industries suffered a lot during the COVID-19 outbreak, the compost industry survived.
