The report “Soil Conditioners Market by Type (Surfactants, Gypsum, Super Absorbent Polymers, and Others), Application (Agriculture, Construction & Mining, and Others), Formulation (Liquid and Dry), Crop Type, Soil Type, and Region – Global Forecast to 2025″ The global soil conditioners market is estimated to account for a value of USD 1.7 billion in 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.3% from 2020, to reach a value of USD 2.5 billion by 2025. Increased demand for agricultural crops such as rice, wheat, and soybean, especially from the developing countries and decrease in availability of agricultural land owing to urbanization is among the key factors expected to drive the soil conditioners market.
By application, the agriculture segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment in the soil conditioners market during the forecast period.
The surplus use of chemicals and fertilizers has led to shrinkage in the fertility and productivity of soil. Soil conditioners act as a valuable tool for the agricultural industry with their ability to enhance soil fertility, texture, and quality. Apart from this, shrinkage in the availability of arable land has urged farmers to enhance crop production in existing land, thus creating an opportunity for soil conditioner manufacturers. In developing countries, population growth and urbanization are the key reasons for the shrinkage of arable land. However, this has also increased the demand for crop production in these developing countries, thereby increasing the demand for soil conditioners in these countries.

By formulation, the liquid segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR in the soil conditioners market during the forecast period.
The liquid forms are applied on a volume basis rather than a weight basis. The liquid form provides various options for crop growers to mix soil conditioners with insecticides, fungicides, or adjuvants. Compared to the dry form, little quantity of liquid soil conditioners is enough to cover larger crop areas, making it a preferable choice among farmers. In South America, the demand for liquid soil conditioners is expected to increase in the years to come, as they are easy to apply, do not require much labor, and increase yield.
North America accounted for the largest share during the forecast period.
The North American region accounted for the largest share during the forecast period. The increase in industrial activities is a key factor that has caused soil degradation in the North American region. Also, North America hosts several mining activities, which lead to barren soil that is susceptible to erosion by wind and rain. . In North America, contamination of the surface in farms and mining to extract minerals, coal, oil, or gas has resulted in soil degradation. According to a report published by Cornell study 2017, in the US, soil disappears ten times faster than it is naturally replenished at an estimated rate of nearly 1.7 billion tons of farmland per year. These factors have contributed to rise in demand for soil conditioners in the region.

- In February 2019, UPL (India) acquired Arysta Life Sciences from Platform Specialty Products (USD) for USD 4.2 billion. UPL also acquired the company’s soil conditioner portfolio.
- In June 2018, BASF (Germany) launched MasterRoc SLF 50, a soil lubricant that improves performance through the control of soil during tunneling operations and challenging soil conditions. The soil conditioner reduces friction and helps to increase the advance rate of the tunnel boring machine (TBM) under challenging soil conditions.
