The African soil treatment market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% during 2015-2020 forecast period. Soil treatment is a procedure that is carried out to reduce traffic and toxicity on the soil surface that helps in retaining the soil texture and nutritional properties. Soil treatment also improves the soil condition and makes it suitable for agricultural operations as it reduces aeration and water infiltration.

Soil treatment in modern day agriculture mainly denotes to nutritional management that improves the fertility of the soil and amount of organic matter content that improves the soil structure and function. As a whole, soil treatment acts as a versatile solution for many field problems as it impacts the soil structure, nutritional profile and biodiversity.

Increasing demand for food and evolving agricultural practices are the major drivers for the growth of soil treatment market demand in Africa. The high consumption of chemical products in the field and lower soil quality necessitates the need for soil treatment product applications. Less awareness among farming community regarding soil treatment and primitive agricultural industry structure form major barriers for the industry growth. Emerging markets and untapped countries of Africa region may provide the future growth opportunity for the industry.

On the basis of product types, soil treatment market is segmented into Organic Amendments, PH Adjusters and Soil Protection products. Soil protection products have the majority of the market share in the region.

Several technologies are employed for soil treatment depending on the requirements and soil topography namely- physiochemical, biochemical and thermal treatments; physiochemical treatment is the most sought after process in this case.

The African soil treatment market is led by South Africa with the increasing government support for agricultural growth. While South Africa accounts for the majority of market share, Egypt would grow at a substantial pace.

Africa soil treatment market is dominated by many global players. The main players in the region’s soil treatment market are Monsanto, BASF SE (Germany), Syngenta AG (Switzerland), and Dupont and etc. Majority of global companies are trying to enter the regional market as the region holds future growth potential. Product innovation and development pertaining to regional needs is taken up as a long term strategy for many market leaders.
