The biofertilizers market is projected to reach $3.22 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 11.5% from 2022 to 2029. This market is driven by the growth in organic farming & the rising demand for organic food, the growing concerns regarding environmental safety, the increasing government initiatives to promote the use of biofertilizers, and the rising investments from leading market players.


Furthermore, the growing adoption of fertilizers in emerging economies is expected to provide significant opportunities for the growth of this market. However, the high demand for synthetic fertilizers and the high production cost of biofertilizers restrain the growth of this market. In addition, lengthy product registration & approval processes pose a major challenge to players operating in this market.

The biofertilizers market is segmented based on microorganism type, crop type, mode of application, form, and geography. The study also evaluates industry competitors and analyses the market at the country level.

Based on microorganism type, the biofertilizers market is segmented into nitrogen-fixing microbes, phosphate solubilizing & mobilizing microbes, potassium solubilizing & mobilizing microbes, and other microorganism types. In 2022, the nitrogen-fixing microbes segment is expected to account for the largest share of the biofertilizers market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to the hazards of using chemical fertilizers, the rising number of initiatives by government agencies along with increasing awareness about the need for sustainability in modern agriculture, the rising adoption of advanced farming with drip irrigation and sprinklers, and the growing health concerns. In addition, nitrogen-fixing microbes are a more economical, ecological, and profitable solution to provide nitrogen to plants contributing to their increased adoption. However, the phosphate solubilizing & mobilizing microbes segment is slated to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period. The rapid growth of this segment is mainly attributed to their potential to improve crop quality and yield.

Based on crop type, the biofertilizers market is segmented into cereals & grains, oilseeds & pulses, fruits & vegetables, and other crops. In 2022, the cereals & grains segment is expected to account for the largest share of the biofertilizers market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to the increasing demand for organic cereals & grains, huge areas of land under organic cereals & grains cultivation, and the growing need to minimize cereal & grain losses due to synthetic fertilizers. However, the fruits & vegetables segment is slated to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is driven by the rising demand for organic fruits & vegetables.

Based on mode of application, the biofertilizers market is segmented into fertigation, foliar application, seed treatment, and other modes of application. In 2022, the fertigation segment is expected to account for the largest share of the biofertilizers market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to the greater flexibility and control offered by fertigation when applying nutrients. In fertigation, nutrients are radially available to the plant roots, increasing the nutrients’ efficiency. It is an easy and safe method of applying biofertilizers. Fertigation offers higher uniformity in nutrient distribution than other organic fertilizer application methods, enhancing organic crop yield by up to 50%. Fertigation also offers improved fertilizer use efficiency (80–90%), saving nearly 25% of nutrients compared to other application modes. However, the foliar application segment is slated to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is driven by the benefits offered by foliar application, such as the uniform application of nutrients and minimal to no fertilizer wastage and the higher adoption of this method in areas with water scarcity or drought.

Based on form, the biofertilizers market is segmented into dry biofertilizers and liquid biofertilizers. In 2022, the dry biofertilizer segment is expected to account for the larger share of the biofertilizers market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to the rising adoption of dry biofertilizers for lawn & garden applications, their long-lasting effects & high efficiency in all climatic conditions, and the wide & easy availability of raw materials. However, the liquid biofertilizers segment is expected to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is attributed to the benefits offered by liquid biofertilizers, such as high efficiency & absorbability, ease of use, cost-effectiveness, and uniform application.

Based on geography, in 2022, North America is expected to account for the largest share of the biofertilizers market. The major market share of North America is attributed to the increasing demand for organic products, the increasing health awareness among consumers, the growing acceptance of biofertilizers among rural farmers, continuously growing areas under organic cultivation, and the high adoption rate of advanced irrigation systems, such as drip & sprinkler irrigation for fertigation.
