Focus on Application, Product, and Region - Analysis and Forecast, 2023-2028
The agricultural soil sampling and testing market was valued at $3.76 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $5.79 billion by 2028, with a CAGR of 7.65%. The market is driven by the rising need for food safety, increasing demand for crop production, and technological advancements in soil analysis. Moreover, growing awareness of soil health and the need to maintain soil fertility are expected to fuel the market growth.
The report has considered several drivers for the growth of agriculture soil sampling and testing:
Increased Emphasis on Organic Farming: Organic farming relies heavily on maintaining soil health and fertility. Soil sampling and testing are crucial in organic farming to ensure the soil has the right balance of nutrients and to monitor for any potential contamination. This increased emphasis on organic farming drives the demand for soil sampling and testing.
Advancements in Soil Testing Technologies: Technological advancements have led to more efficient and accurate soil testing methods. These include portable soil testing kits, digital mapping platforms, and precision agriculture technologies. These advancements make soil testing more accessible and reliable, thus driving the growth of the agriculture soil sampling and testing market.
Major companies operating in the global agriculture soil sampling and testing market include Ward Laboratories, Inc., SGS SA, Yara, Agvise Laboratory, ALS, EarthOptics, Deveron Corp., LaMotte Company, Eurofins Scientific, HANNA INSTRUMENTS, INC., Pace Analytical Services, and Midwest Laboratories.
Emerging trends in agriculture soil sampling and testing technologies include:
Precision Agriculture Technologies: Advances in affordable precision agriculture technologies and tools such as global positioning system (GPS), geostatistical tools, and the use of crop sensors to detect plant status and canopy color have led to new precision soil sampling techniques.
Real-Time Soil Monitoring: The development of soil sensors for real-time monitoring of soil health parameters such as pH, moisture, temperature, and nutrient levels is a significant trend.
Digital Soil Mapping: Digital soil mapping uses computer algorithms to predict the distribution of soil properties across a landscape based on observations from soil samples.
Portable On-Site Testing Kits: The development of portable on-site testing kits allows for immediate analysis of soil samples in the field, providing instant results.
Use of Drones: Drones are being used to collect soil samples from hard-to-reach areas and to create detailed maps of soil properties across large areas.
Data Integration and Analysis: The integration of soil data with other farm data (such as yield data) and the use of advanced data analysis techniques (such as machine learning) to interpret this data is another emerging trend.
Government regulations play a crucial role in the agriculture soil sampling and testing market. Regulations pertaining to environmental safety and agricultural productivity have been a major driving force for market growth. These regulations often require soil testing to ensure compliance, such as maintaining certain nutrient levels in the soil, avoiding over-fertilization that can lead to nutrient runoff and pollution, and ensuring safe levels of pesticides or other chemicals. In addition, some regulations promote soil testing as part of sustainable farming practices or organic certification processes. Therefore, these government regulations create a significant demand for agriculture soil sampling and testing services.
