The regenerative agriculture market size growing at CAGR of 14.0% to reach US$ 16.8 billion by 2027. The global regenerative agriculture market size was valued at US$ 8.7 billion in 2022. Regenerative farming techniques boost soil biodiversity and organic matter, making soils more resilient and better able to endure the effects of climate change, such as flooding and drought. Strong yields and nutrient-rich crops result from healthy soils. Additionally, it reduces runoff and erosion, resulting in better water quality both on and off the farm.Regenerative farming techniques are crucial because they remove carbon from the atmosphere and store it underground, aiding in the fight against the climate problem. Due to these factors, coupled with increasing investments from governments, players, and agricultural welfare associations, the market for regenerative agriculture is anticipated to grow at a rapid rate during the study period.
The soil and crop management segment is anticipated to gain the largest market share in the regenerative agriculture market
Soil and crop management is further sub-segmented into nitrogen fixation, nutrient cycling, and water retention. Regenerative agriculture employs a variety of strategies with the aim of gradually increasing the productivity and biodiversity of the land being stewarded from a more systems-based and holistic perspective. In most agroecosystems, nitrogen is the most limiting nutrient. This limitation is overcome in regenerative agriculture by incorporating external organic nitrogen sources, such as animal manure, crop residue, compost, and biological nitrogen fixers (microbes that convert atmospheric nitrogen into plant- and microbe-available forms in the soil).
The North American region is projected to account for a major share of the regenerative agriculture market during the forecast period
North America is projected to dominate the global regenerative agriculture market during the forecast period. This is attributed to various prominent players present in the region that are developing strategies for promoting the adoption of regenerative farming practices. Awareness among farmers regarding the benefits of regenerative agriculture, coupled with active support from various players by offering a carbon credit program, is anticipated to drive the market in the region. Moreover, consumers in the region are willing to pay more for sustainably sourced food products, which is further boosting the growth of the market. Some of the major players headquartered in the region are General Mills, Inc (US), Cargill (US), Indigo Ag, Inc (US), Danone North America (US), and Pivot Bio (US).
Key players in this market include Nestle SA (Switzerland), Danone SA (France), General Mills, Inc (US), Cargill Incorporated (US), Unilever PLC (United Kingdom), Grounded (South Africa), Soil Capital Belgium SPRL (Belgium), Indigo Ag, Inc (US), and Serenity Kids (US).
