Biofertilizers market projected to grow at a CAGR of 14.08% during the forecast period

The biofertilizers market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 14.08% from 2016, to reach USD 2,305.5 million by 2022. The market is driven by factors such as increase in demand for fertilizers due to the rise in global food production and development in biofertilizer manufacturing technologies. The high growth potential in emerging markets and untapped regions provide new growth opportunities for the players in the biofertilizers market. Some factors restraining the biofertilizers market are lack of awareness and low adoption of biofertilizers coupled with poor infrastructure.

Nitrogen-fixing segment to dominate the biofertilizers market

Nitrogen-fixing biofertilizers are used for leguminous as well as for non-leguminous crops. They are used to grow other crops as well, especially, rice and sugarcane. The nitrogen-fixing segment growth is attributed to the fact that nitrogen-fixing biofertilizers are the most commonly used biofertilizers, across the globe. Substantial R&D efforts have been carried out in the last couple of decades, along with increasing awareness of the farmers; these are the major reasons driving the growth of this market.

Fruits & vegetables segment is projected to be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period

On the basis of crop type, the biofertilizers market has been segmented into cereals & grains, pulses & oilseeds, fruits & vegetables, and others, which include turf & ornamentals, plantation crops, fiber crops, and silage & forage crops. The fruits & vegetables segment is projected to grow with the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2022. The growth in demand and consumption of fruits & vegetables, across the globe, has driven the consumption of biofertilizers used to cultivate them.

Asia-Pacific region to account for maximum shares of the global biofertilizers market

On the basis of region, the biofertilizers market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Rest of the World, which includes the Middle Eastern and African countries. The Asia-Pacific region dominated the global biofertilizers market in 2015, and this trend is projected to continue till 2022. The main factors driving the biofertilizers market in this region are advancement in biofertilizer production technologies, increased demand for fertilizers, and presence of biofertilizer manufacturing units in this region.
