marketsandmarkets logo

The global biofertilizers market was valued at 2.8 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 5.2 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 10.9% during the study period. The market size is estimated to be valued at USD 3.1 billion in 2023. Through natural processes such as nitrogen fixation, phosphate solubilization; and the production of compounds that stimulate growth, biofertilizers provide nutrients to plants. They boost soil organic matter and aid in restoring the soil’s natural nutrition cycle. By using biofertilizers, growers can increase the sustainability and health of the soil and cultivate healthy crops. Only bacteria and other biological elements that are not damaging to the environment are present in biofertilizers. As a result, they contribute to reducing pollution brought on by agricultural activities, particularly soil pollution.

Biofertilizers Market Trends:

Some of the biofertilizers market trends are:

  • Growing Demand for Organic Agriculture: The increasing global demand for organic produce has been a significant driver for the biofertilizer market. Consumers are more conscious of the environmental impact of conventional farming practices, leading to a shift towards organic and sustainable agriculture.
  • Government Initiatives and Regulations: Many governments around the world have been promoting the use of biofertilizers through subsidies, incentives, and regulations. This support is aimed at encouraging farmers to adopt eco-friendly and sustainable agricultural practices.
  • Advancements in Microbial Strains: Ongoing research and development in microbiology have led to the identification and isolation of more effective microbial strains for biofertilizer production. Improved strains contribute to better nutrient availability and overall plant health.
  • Awareness and Education: Farmers and agricultural practitioners are becoming more aware of the benefits of biofertilizers. Educational programs and initiatives by agricultural extension services contribute to the dissemination of knowledge regarding the advantages of using bio-based fertilizers.
  • Integration with Conventional Fertilizers: Biofertilizers are increasingly being integrated into conventional fertilizer practices. This integrated approach helps optimize nutrient management, reduce dependency on chemical fertilizers, and enhance soil health.
  • Technological Advancements in Production: Technological innovations in the production of biofertilizers have led to increased efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Improved manufacturing processes and packaging methods contribute to the wider adoption of biofertilizers.

North America is projected to gain the largest market share in the global biofertilizers market.

North America is projected to gain the largest market share in the global biofertilizers market. The presence of a large number in the region allows farmers/growers in the region, access to a wide range of products at competitive prices. The governments in the region are promoting the use of agricultural inputs, which cause less environmental degradation, and hence are encouraging the use of biofertilizers. In countries such as the US and Canada, farmers are focused on producing cash crops on a larger scale, which is also driving the market in the region.
