Global Bio-Fertilizer Market Outlook


Market Overview

Agriculture has a significant place in all developed and developing nations where agrochemicals are mainly used to increase the production and to fulfill global needs. Adoption of liquid bio-fertilizers over conventional bio-fertilizers is gaining immense popularity in agriculture industry owing to its longer life span of 12-24 months. Liquid bio-fertilizers have better performance on soil and seeds which increases their efficiency due to negligible contamination. Moreover, adverse affects of chemical fertilizers are increasing the inclination towards the adoption of bio-fertilizers. Rising awareness regarding the importance of soil health maintenance and sustainable environmental development are contributing in gaining momentum for bio-fertilizers market across the globe.

Growing demand for organic food and environmental friendly agricultural methods are propelling the demand for bio-fertilizers in developed and developing economies. Smaller manufacturers of bio-fertilizers in emerging economies are majorly focusing to export bio-fertilizers to international market. For instance, India based biotechnology company Ajay Bio-Tech Ltd. is expanding its business in western markets along with the Asia-Pacific region. Furthermore, Government is also taking initiatives to provide trainings to farmers and creating awareness about the benefits of bio-fertilizers. Ban on the use of harmful fertilizers and pesticides by Food & Security agencies of government is likely to exhibit huge demand for organic fruits and vegetables. This promotional act by government is expected to have positive impact on the growth of bio-fertilizers market in the near future.

Market Drivers and Challenges

Increasing health concerns mainly in developing countries is shifting people’s interest towards consumption of organic foods. High cost of chemical fertilizers and rising awareness about vulnerability of chemical fertilizers are primary factor to accelerate bio-fertilizers market in developing nations. Bio-fertilizers have strong resistance against crop diseases which is the major factor for driving market demand.

Lack of awareness and availability of bio-fertilizers amongst farmers are restraining the market growth in countries such as India, Myanmar and Nigeria. Negligible results of bio-fertilizers for standing crops are the major factor obstructing the adoption rate of bio-fertilizers by farmers. Changing cropping pattern of farmers, soil characteristics and unstable temperature negatively affects the efficiency of bio-fertilizers. Also, bio-fertilizers have less span of life cycle limited to 3-6 months restraining the use of bio-fertilizers.
