Global Biofertilizers Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The global biofertilizers market size is expected to reach USD 2.70 billion in 2024 and reach USD 4.78 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 12.09% from 2024 to 2029.

Biofertilizers are made of living organisms like bacteria, mycorrhizal fungi, rhizobium, and pseudomonas to offer essential nutrients that promote growth in plants and trees.

MARKET DRIVERS:

The primary factor attributing to the growth of the global biofertilizers market is the rising population demand for organic products to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

This need for organic products promotes organic farming, where biofertilizers play a pivotal role. Governments across the world are offering special incentives and subsidies to support sustainable agriculture, propelling the demand for biofertilizers. In addition, chemical and synthetic fertilizers result in increased pollution, water contamination, and soil degradation. Therefore, there is a rising need for alternative eco-friendly options like biofertilizers that can promote soil health and fertility, resulting in more crop yields for farmers. Also, the latest advancements in technology and improvements in microbe strains are contributing to the growth of more effective and affordable biofertilizer options.

The burgeoning demand for high-value crops and diversification of plants are creating a positive atmosphere for the biofertilizers market. Besides, the surge in global warming and deforestation is hindering the pattern of seasons and resulting in uncertain rain conditions. Therefore, there is a huge emphasis on effective solutions to ensure more crop production and high-quality foods, which is promoting the adoption of more biofertilizers. Moreover, the advantages of biofertilizers, like water conservation, integrated pest management, and increasing education about the uses of these components, will create lucrative opportunities for the biofertilizers market in the coming years.

MARKET RESTRAINTS:

The primary restraint to the global biofertilizers market is the issue of the prices of these fertilizers compared to the cheap chemical products that are available.

The lack of proper awareness among farmers about the long-term benefits of these biofertilizers is also creating a negative impact on the business. Also, the uncertain functionality of these biofertilizers in harsh climates, different soil conditions, and seasoned crops is pulling the market demand down. In addition, the lack of an established infrastructure and distribution network can hamper the productivity and sales of these fertilizers. Besides, the volatility of the market due to changing commodity prices and accessibility of products is also a concern in the global biofertilizers market. The strict government regulations and compliances related to environmental safety also led to delayed approvals for manufacturers. Moreover, the shelf life and storage challenges, coupled with the intense market competition, are further supposed to restrict the developments in the global biofertilizers market.

Impact Of COVID-19 On The Global Biofertilizers Market:

The COVID-19 pandemic had an initial negative impact on the agriculture sector and biofertilizers market due to disruptions to the supply chain and restricted logistics across the globe. The worldwide lockdown scenario changed priorities towards essentials, limiting the production and development of new fertilizers. In addition, the temporary shutdown of industries and social distancing measures led to a shortage of workforce in the manufacturing units. The market instability along with the uncertainty in the adoption of new processes, had limited most of the companies to slow down their investments, which affected the biofertilizers market. In addition, several governments have shifted funds towards essentials during COVID-19, which impacted developments in the agriculture sector. On the contrary, the pandemic also emphasized the need for more healthy food products and increased the scope of organic farming, which is likely to benefit the biofertilizers market in the foreseen period.

SEGMENTAL ANALYSIS

Global Biofertilizers Market By Type:

Nitrogen-fixing biofertilizers recorded the highest share in the worldwide market and are likely to have more demand over the forecast period due to their effective soil correction and high-yield benefits. In addition, nitrogen-fixing can offer advantages like improved soil health, nutrient absorption, plant growth stimulus, and increased crop production. Similarly, phosphate solubilizers are also anticipated to register significant growth with the surging need for sustainable farming techniques.

Global Biofertilizers Market By Crop Type:

The cereals & grains crop type dominated the biofertilizers market and is predicted to continue its dominion in the coming years. Wheat, maize, rice, etc., are staple foods in most countries, which supports the demand in this segment. In addition, the oilseeds and pulses segment is expected to grow in the coming years because of favorable government regulations and the need for organic oils and pulses. Besides, fruits and vegetables are also estimated to witness steady growth in the future due to the consumer demand for a healthy lifestyle.

Global Biofertilizers Market By Form:

Liquid fertilizers hold the lion’s share in the global biofertilizers market and are predicted to continue their dominion in the outlook period. Liquid biofertilizers are easy to use and allow quick absorption of nutrients, along with improved crop yields due to high microbial density.

Global Biofertilizers Market By Microorganism:

The rhizobium segment registered a majority share in the global biofertilizers market because of its advantages, such as nitrogen fixation in soils. Similarly, Rhizobium improves the crop growth and insolubilization of organic phosphates which enhances productivity and plant health. Azotobacter, a symbiotic bacterium, is also expected to record considerable growth in the predicted period due to its support in synthesizing plant growth regulators, protection from phytopathogens, and balancing soil pH and fertility.

Global Biofertilizers Market By Application Mode:

The seed treatment applications dominated the global biofertilizers market owing to the need for increased crop production and decreased utilization of synthetic fertilizers. Similarly, soil treatment applications are expected to witness higher demand because of the increasing need to reduce soil erosion and increase fertility.
