    What is biofertilizer?

    Biofertilizers are substances or formulations that contain microbes such as bacteria, fungi, or algae that promote the growth of plants and trees by increasing the source of essential nutrients. These microorganisms form beneficial symbiotic relationships with plants, promoting their nutrient availability and health.

    Market Dynamics

    The growth of the biofertilizers market is primarily driven by-

    • Growing awareness towards the usage of sustainable materials and technological advancement in crop production.
    • The rising concerns over food safety.
    • The rising demand for organic food and the need to lessen the impact of agriculture on the environment.


    Biofertilizer products have a limited shelf life and a high contamination risk. High temperatures render microorganisms nonviable, necessitating storage in a dry, cool environment. Factors like culture medium, harvest physiological state, dehydration process, drying rate, temperature maintenance, and inoculant water activity affect the shelf life of microorganisms, impacting agricultural inoculation technology.


    The Asia Pacific and Africa regions are major fertilizer consumers due to population growth and increased food demand. Governments are promoting environmentally friendly alternatives like biofertilizers and organic manure to mitigate the negative effects of chemical fertilizers. Africa has experienced overuse of synthetic fertilizers, compromising soil quality and nutrient levels. As a result, the region now requires biofertilizers to address these issues.


    Counterfeit biofertilizers pose a significant issue in the sector, affecting farmers' perceptions and market expansion. These counterfeit products, with similar chemical qualities and physical traits, are cheaply produced and difficult to distinguish from genuine biofertilizers. They are primarily sold in Asian countries due to their fragmented market.

    Segments Analysis

    By Product Type

    The market is segmented as nitrogen-fixing, phosphate-solubilizing, potash-mobilizing, and others. The nitrogen-fixing segment dominated the market, its market share, in terms of volume, is more than 65% in 2022 and is expected to maintain its position during the following period as well. It is majorly used as it improves the fertility of the soil by converting the available nitrogen through nitrogen-fixing organisms.

    By Application Type

    The market is segmented into seed treatment, soil treatment, and others. The seed treatment segment held more than 70% market share in 2022 and is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period, whereas the soil treatment segment is expected to witness the highest growth over the assessment period.

    By Crop Type

    The market is segmented as cereal & grains, pulses & oil seeds, fruits & vegetables, and others. The cereals segment is expected to take the lead in the biofertilizers market due to the significant demand for organic cereals. Organic fertilizers are extensively utilized in the cultivation of cereal grains compared to other crop types. This segment is expected to maintain its dominant position throughout the forecast period in the biofertilizer market.

    The market growth of organic cereals is being driven by the substantial demand for organic cereals in both developed and developing economies, thanks to the potential health benefits they offer. Moreover, there is a surge in consumer demand for organic cereals and products derived from them worldwide, which further amplifies the utilization of these products for cultivating cereal crops.

    By Form Type

    The market is segmented as dry and liquid. The dry-form biofertilizers are expected to dominate the market during the assessment period. The increasing demand for dry biofertilizers is driven by their characteristics for long-term nutrient augmentation. Dry biofertilizers are available in a wide range of physical consistencies, from large grains to finely powdered forms, offering consumers a diverse selection.

    This diversity and availability of dry biofertilizers have garnered positive attention. When applied to the soil, dry biofertilizers are often sprayed and gradually release nutrients to plants. This feature makes them a convenient choice for providing supplementary nourishment throughout the crop's life cycle, especially when compared to liquid fertilizers. The slow-release mechanism of dry biofertilizers supports the plants' respiration process while preventing the simultaneous overwhelming of nutrients.

    Regional Insights

    North America held market share, in terms of revenue, is more than 30% in 2022, and is estimated to be the largest market for biofertilizers during the assessment period. Increasing concern about the hazardous impact of using chemical products, growing awareness among consumers and farmers, and increasing support from government bodies are the major factors boosting the North American market. Asia-Pacific and Europe are also expected to offer substantial progress opportunities during the following period.
