Biostimulants can be defined as natural or synthetic substances. These are used in seeds, plants, and soil to influence growth. These substances have the potential to alter the vital and structural processes, provide tolerance to abiotic stresses and boost grain or seed yield and quantity.
The global biostimulants market size stood at $3.0 billion in 2021, which is expected to reach $7.81 billion by 2030, advancing at a CAGR of 11.3% during 2021–2030. This is due to the promulgating demand for food coupled with the rising global population and the increasing hunger and malnutrition coupled with adverse climate changes. In addition, the overexploitation of natural resources by human activities, loss of biodiversity, and wastage of food are other factors driving the industry growth.

The small concentrations of biostimulants improve nutrition efficiency, crop quality traits, and abiotic stress tolerance. The extent application has these substances perform similar functions as plant hormones, such as gibberellins, auxins, and cytokinins.
Abiotic stress massively impacts plant growth and productivity in modern times. It includes salinity, drought, and extreme temperatures that worldwide cause huge crop losses. Therefore, biostimulants are integrated into production systems to prevent such losses and modify the physiological processes of plants in order to improve productivity.
The precise application of biostimulants in crops alters the physiological processes in such a way as to provide potential benefits, including growth, development, and lessening the impact of toxic and saline elements, and water stress.
Biostimulants are different from conventional phosphorus, nitrogen, and potassium fertilizers. They contain a formula of organic compounds, including seaweed extracts, amino acids, humic acids, ascorbic acid, and other chemicals.
