Soil Wetting Agents Market Poised for Steady Growth in the Future 2026
Certain types of soils prevent the water from seeping to the roots of the plant. Sandy soil and soils that contain organic matter prevent the water from penetrating the surface of the soil. Soil wetting agents are surfactants that minimize the surface tension of water. Low surface tension improves the ability of water to spread across the surface of the soil. Soil wetting agents protect the soil and minimize the adverse effects of drought. Soil wetting agents coat the soil particles on a molecular level in order to water infiltrated into soil bed. Several types of soil wetting agents are commercially available for both indoor and outdoor purposes.
The global soil wetting agents market can be segmented based on form, application, and end-use product, and region. In terms of form, the market can be bifurcated into liquid and granular. Liquid is expected to be a leading segment of the soil wetting agents market during the forecast period. The granular segment of the soil wetting agents market is anticipated to expand at a considerable CAGR during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the rising demand for this form of soil wetting agent from agrarian regions.
