Global Biofertilizers Market is expected to reach USD 5.82 Billion by the end of forecast period 2021-2027

The Biofertilizers Market is forecasted to grow at a high rate owing to rising environmental owing to growing consumer awareness regarding the harmful effects of chemicals on the health and environment

The Global Biofertilizers Market was estimated at USD 2.45 Bn in 2020 and is expected to grow with CAGR of 13.2% during the forecast period.

The biofertilizers market is majorly growing owing to growing consumer awareness regarding the harmful effects of chemicals on the health and environment. Aggressive usage of synthetic fertilizers along with other chemicals such as pesticides and insecticides over a long duration has severely deteriorated the quality of soil across several agrarian economies. This has shifted the focus towards the use of microbial seed treatment products and more efficient residue management. Biofertilizers are natural fertilizers that consist of living microorganisms. Unlike chemical fertilizers, biofertilizers provide direct nutrition to the plant and help in improving the overall soil fertility.  Biofertilizers are eco-friendly and cost-effective solutions that help in destroying several harmful substances present in the soil that causes plant diseases. Owing to these benefits, biofertilizers are gaining wide acceptance across the globe which is thereby anticipated to have a positive impact on the growth of the market.

Moreover, favourable government support for promoting the use of biofertilizers by offering several subsidies and grants is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities in the biofertilizers industry. For instance, the Common Agricultural Policy in EU countries promotes the usage of biological products and organic farming. The policy also offers training programs for educating and motivating farmers to adopt biofertilizers instead of chemical fertilizers. The North American biofertilizers are pegged to garner significant product demand over the forecast period owing to the several bans being imposed on the usage of harmful chemical-based fertilizer in agriculture. Such steps are projected to be instrumental in increasing their existing consumer base and market share, thus contributing to the biofertilizers industry growth.

Global Biofertilizers Market by Region Outlook (Revenue, USD Million, 2021-2027)

  • Europe
  • North America
  • Asia Pacific
