The report “Soil Testing Equipment Market by Type of Test [Physical (Shear strength equipment, Leachability equipment, Plasticity equipment, Permeability equipment), Residual (GC-MS, ICP-MS), Chemical (pH meters, Salinity testing equipment, Test kits & reagents), End User (Agriculture, Construction, Others), Degree of Automation (Manual, Semi-automatic Automatic), Based on Site (Laboratory, On-site)} - Global Forecast to 2025" was valued around USD 3.3 billion in the year 2020 and is expected to account to a value of USD 6.2 billion by 2025, with 10.8% CAGR from during forecast period 2020-2025.

Some of the key driver factoring to this growth in this market are need for better farm management methods, industrialization, agricultural intensification, and the need for quicker and more accurate test results. The rapid implementation of precision farming maximizes crop yield and profitability and tests the fertility of the soil, leachability, and nutrient movement, helping to improve soil formulation and quality. This has also allowed farmers or growers to segregate fields into zones, developing a site-specific strategy to optimize yields and minimize input costs. Thus, these variables have contributed to the development of the global market for soil testing equipment.

Demand for soil testing equipment decreased in 2020 due to the government's lockdown and low demand from the construction and agricultural industries. The COVID-19 pandemic has shut down the production of different soil test equipment items, mainly due to prolonged lock-downs in major global countries. This has greatly slowed the development of the demand for soil testing equipment over the last few months, as is expected to continue throughout 2020. In the first quarter of 2020, COVID-19 has already impacted equipment and machinery sales and is expected to have a negative effect on business development during the year.

Huge manufacturing countries such as the U.S., Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, and China, which are badly affected by the spread of coronavirus, have previously seen substantial demand for equipment and machinery, thereby stopping demand for equipment and machinery.

Currently, the future effect of the lockdown is vague and the financial recovery of firms is completely dependent on their cash reserves. Only for a few months would equipment and machinery companies afford a complete lockdown, during which the players will have to change their investment plans. Manufacturers of equipment and machinery must concentrate on protecting their staff, facilities, and supply chains to respond to urgent emergencies and find new ways to operate after cases of COVID-19 infection begin to decrease.

Growth Drivers

  • Equipment for soil testing helps classify possible hazardous contaminants, the degree of fertility and soil mineral testing.
  • Rapid industrialization and growth of infrastructure and growing demand for quicker and more accurate test results
  • The growth of the construction and infrastructure industries, due to the rising population and rapid urbanization, is driving market growth.

OPPORTUNTIES

  • Favourable government precision farming initiatives and growing R&D activities
  • To increase the market for the production of advanced and creative soil testing equipment, strict government regulations and specifications for construction materials are expected.

CHALLENGES

  • High equipment costs and a slower speed of embracing new technologies
  • The scarcity of trained and professional soil testing equipment operators

GEOGRAPHICAL ANALYSIS

Based on Geography, the Soil testing equipment market is segmented into-

  • North America – US, Canada
  • Europe – Germany, UK, France, Italy, Spain, Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific (APAC) – India, Japan, China, Rest of APAC
  • Rest of the World – Middle East & Africa.

Significant growth is to be witnessed by Asia Pacific & North America segments from the year 2020 to 2025.

From 2020 to 2025, North America, followed by Asia Pacific, is expected to rise at high rates. The US is the North American region's leading market. The presence of key players, increasing funds for environmental protection, and growth in organic farming are the main drivers of the market in this area. While, Asia Pacific is projected to develop at the second fastest CAGR in the global market for soil testing equipment, with some countries offering lucrative growth opportunities in this area. In China, agricultural professionals are seeking modern farming methods for the sustainable production of agricultural yields. In the on-farm management research programs, Chinese scientists from fields such as agronomy, agro-engineering, information technology and geography were involved. The Chinese government has made considerable efforts to encourage research into precision farming and has sponsored many projects. The growth of the global soil testing equipment industry is anticipated to be powered by these factors.
