Demand for Agriculture Testing Services to Accelerate with Increasing Emphasis on Maximising Yield, Says FMI Study

Jul 02,2019 | Testing Equipment

Agriculture testing services conduct various types of testing such as that of water, soil, seeds, food, fertilizers, and other testing services to inspect and determine their quality parameters. The increasing demand for agriculture testing services across the globe to maintain the quality standards and to maximise agriculture production is boosting the market growth significantly. The agriculture testing services market is segmented on the basis of sample type, by service type, by end user, and by region.

On the basis of sample type, the agriculture testing services market has been segmented into water, soil, seed, water, fertilizer, food, and others. On the basis of service type, the agriculture testing service market has been segmented into on-site and off-site agriculture testing services. On the basis of end users, the agriculture testing services market has been segmented into farmers, agricultural consultants, fertiliser manufacturers, research bodies, and others. On the basis of region, the agriculture testing services market has been segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, East Asia, South Asia, Oceania, Middle East and Africa and Emerging Countries.  

Rapidly increasing global population and urbanisation are some of the major concerns across the globe. Increasing population creates a burden on the agriculture industry to maximise the overall yield production. Continuous focus on the maximisation of yield production also requires a larger quantity of agriculture products such as fertilizers, seeds, and others. The increasing demand for the quality inspection of these agriculture products to generate the maximum yield is ultimately boosting the agriculture testing service market. 

Key Players Focused on Expansion in Lucrative Asian Markets

Regions such as North America, Europe, and East & South Asia are among the key regions in which the agriculture industry is growing rapidly.

The presence of an adequate number of key agriculture service providers and the frequent requirement of agriculture testing services in these regions is fuelling the growth of the agriculture testing service market. These key agriculture testing service providers firmly believe in acquisitions and expansion strategies to expand their global footprints.
