Also, turf is widely in use as a landscape material in residential and commercial constructions. This artificially grown and installed piece of grass layer is prone to several mechanical and biological agents, thus leading to a need for effective management procedures. Turf protection include chemical and biological pesticides to control pests; and mechanical aids for protecting against physical stress.
The global turf protection market valued USD XX million in 2020 and is estimated to reach USD XX million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX%.
Development of large sport fields is boosting market growth
Sports fields are a major area of use of turfs with natural grass turf placed over the entire play area to promote year-round activities on a safe surface. Properly installed and adequately maintained turf is an essential part of sports field.

Synthetic turf on the other hand
Pesticides are holding the largest share in global market. Concerns of chemical pesticides prevails
Most turfgrass administrators are familiar with the adverse impact of soil microorganisms, several of which are pathogenic and can harm turfgrass. Also, the soil harbor various non-pathogenic soil microorganisms that enhance plants' health. This has increased the need for turf protection against microbes. Biological protectants are the preferred choice in this activity. Biological solutions include soil fungi and bacteria that improve the availability of plant nutrients in soil, form a symbiotic connection with turfgrass roots, create substances that stimulate plant growth, and protect the plants against infection from pathogenic fungi. Biological control takes the advantage to minimize the damage from plant pathogens.
Organisms that interfere with the actions of plants pathogens are called antagonists. Biological control is produced by introducing antagonists or manipulating antagonists already existing in the soil and plants. Using natural turf protection intends to eliminate or reduce pathogens activities by reducing pathogen inoculum in soil, shielding plant surface from infection or inducing nature protection mechanisms in plants.
North America is dominating the market of turf protection
Turfgrass lawns are an essential part of American culture. Mowed turfgrasses cover millions of lands in the continental U.S., an area three times larger than any irrigated crop, 75 % of which includes residential, institutional and commercial lawns. Millions of households engaged in lawn and garden activities; besides rendering artistic and recreational benefits, lawns support reducing soil depletion and surface drainage, urban waste heat by transpiration cooling, reducing noise and glare associated with impervious surfaces.
North America is the largest consumer of turf protection solutions globally. In U.S. culture of farming and plantation at homes is rising due to growing awareness towards environment. Many populations make gardens at their homes, but grass, plants, and flowers get destroyed due to pests, infection, and other factors. Populace controls or limits these pests and infections and saves plants and grass by using turf protection.

COVID-19 Impact: Pandemic had decreased the demand for turf protection
The spread of novel coronavirus and lockdowns imposed thereof led to a significant drop in demand for turf protection solutions globally. As sports fields account for a major share of sales, restrictions on outdoor gaming activities and subsequent closure of sport fields resulted a significant drop in revenue.

On the flip side, lawn management segment witnessed a considerable spike in sales during the pandemic as people staying indoors focused high on lawn management. By geography, the impact of COVID-19 on the market is linear to the severity of virus spread and restrictions on public activities. The rollout of vaccine, ongoing vaccination drives, easing restrictions on sports and other outdoor entertainment programs and 'revenge-travel mode' is likely to bolster market growth to pre-pandemic levels in 2021.
