02-05-2020 REP-HC-5074 120 pages Format

The effective microorganism market was valued at USD 915.6 Mn by 2019. Constant rise in the demand for organic food worldwide primarily drives the effective microorganism market growth. Depleting soil health and increasing pathogen infection to crops resulting in low quality and yield per hectare further consolidates the effective microorganism market growth.

 Effective Microorganism Market

Effective microorganism was developed in 1082 by Dr. Higa at the University of Ryukyus, Okinawa Japan. He was successful in identifying specific groups of naturally occurring microbes that have tremendous ability to revive and preserve the soil health. It comprises of microorganisms such as lactic acid bacteria, yeasts, actinomycetes, photosynthetic bacteria, and fungi, etc. It is helpful in controlling the degree of soil moisturization and nutrient absorption. Detoxification of residual herbicides and pesticides in the soils are also enhanced by the effective microorganism.

Segment Analysis

EM 1 is leading the type segment for effective microorganism market. It is considered as the most widely used fundamental product worldwide for its soil nurturing properties, furthermore, the dilute form of EM 1 is used as a foliage application on plants ensuring wetting. Pedologist is of the opinion that EM 1 is helpful in accelerating the soil formation and creation of soil microbiome community. EM Bokashi is anticipated to register magnificent market growth owing to its ability to ferment kitchen waste material. It is widely used in horticulture due to its ability to improve the soil texture and the addition of essential nutrients to the soil. The raw material required for the preparation of EM Bokashi is rice bran, molasses, EM 1, and water. 

Agriculture is dominating the application segment for an effective microorganism market. Depleting soil health and increasing soil pollution results in the increasing demand for the use of effective microorganisms in the agriculture segment. It is widely used to create organic compost, legume inoculant for nitrogen fixation of soil, and most importantly improve the crop quality and yield per hectare. Agricultural economists are of the strong opinion that the application of effective microorganisms in the agriculture segment drastically reduces the labor cost. Waste management is estimated to register rapid market growth in the near future on account of the ability of effective microorganisms to create organic compost form kitchen waste. Effective microorganisms are widely employed in the treatment of sewage polluted lakes in developing countries across the globe. 

North America is presently the global leader in the geography segment for an effective microorganism market. The key factor which determines its market growth in the region is the increasing demand for organic food. Additionally, the depleting soil health especially in the prairie region increases the demand for effective microorganisms to replenish the soil health in the region. Europe is the second-largest regional segment in the effective microorganism market. Strategic collaboration between academic research institutes and organic chemical producers in the identification of new strains of effective microorganism and its application in increasing the agricultural produce in the region. Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest-growing regional segment during the forecast period. The constant rise in the application of effective microorganisms in the waste management and burgeoning requirement to maintain soil health due to injudicious use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides in the Asia Pacific region.
