Drivers and Restrictions

Adoption of organic farming to drive market progress

Growing awareness among farmers of the benefits of biofertilizers is expected to drive demand for the products. Organic farming is widely used by several farmers as it improves the nutrients in the soil. According to the Research Institute for Organic Agriculture (FiBL), in 2019 around 72.3 million hectares of land were cultivated using organic fertilizers. Growing demand for environmentally friendly agricultural solutions is expected to drive the demand for biofertilizers. It prevents soil pollution and improves the quality of the harvest. In addition, the incorporation by governments of several programs, plans and other initiatives should encourage the adoption of the product. For example, in India, the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) and the National Center for Organic Agriculture (NCOF) have organized demonstrations to educate farmers on the use of organic fertilizers. These factors are expected to boost the growth of the biofertilizers market.

However, high production costs and poor shelf life of organic fertilizers are expected to hamper the market growth.

Regional outlook

Emergence of several organic farms to foster market growth in North America

North America is expected to dominate the market share owing to the emergence of several organic farms in Mexico, Canada, and the United States. The North American market stood at USD 0.51 billion in 2020 and is expected to dominate the market in the coming years. According to information provided by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), certified organic businesses and farms in the United States showed an annual growth of 13% between 2015 and 2016. Moreover, the increasing adoption of organic products by consumers is expected to propel the growth of the market.

In Europe, strict regulations regarding the use of chemical fertilizers are expected to fuel the demand for biofertilizers. Strict safety, labeling and quality requirements are expected to drive adoption of organic fertilizers. According to the new regulations implemented by the European Union, the adoption limit of phosphate fertilizers should be reduced from 60mg/kg to 40mg/kg to 20mg/kg. These factors are expected to propel the growth of the market.
