Land Restoration Market

Land Restoration Market is Expected to be Flourished by Increasing Government Initiatives for Environmental Protection

Land restoration involves improving degraded, damaged, or destroyed land and restoring it to optimum conditions. Some key techniques used in land restoration include reforestation, afforestation, wetland restoration, and prairie restoration. Land restoration is utilized when an area of land has been damaged due to deforestation, forest fires, desertification, mining, and other man-made and natural disasters. It aims to restore vital ecosystems that provide habitats for animals and vegetation. The global land restoration market involves various stakeholders including government organizations, NGOs, consulting firms, and contractors.

The global land restoration market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2.24 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 9.4% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Dynamics:
Increasing government initiatives towards environmental protection is expected to drive the growth of the land restoration market over the forecast period. For instance, in March 2021, the Biden administration announced plans to restore as much as 1 million acres of federal land per year through intentional landscape restoration and revegetation. Moreover, increasing deforestation rates poses a threat to ecosystems. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), around 10 million hectares of forest are lost each year. This has created a growing demand for large-scale restoration projects globally. Furthermore, rise in awareness regarding ecosystem services provided by forests and biodiversity conservation is also promoting the adoption of land restoration practices. Growing carbon emission levels has boosted restoration of ecosystems like forests which act as carbon sinks and help in mitigating climate change. All these factors are expected to support market growth over the forecast period.

Segment Analysis
The global land restoration market is segmented on the basis of service type and region. On the basis of service type, the market is segmented into reconstruction and reclamation, landfill and excavation, grassland restoration, re-vegetation management and others. The reconstruction and reclamation segment dominates the market and accounts for nearly 30% share due to the increasing development activities across residential, commercial and industrial spaces.
