Global Biofertilizer Market Highlights Over 2023 - 2035

The global biofertilizer market is estimated to garner a revenue of ~USD 7 billion by the end of 2035 by growing at a CAGR of ~14% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. Further, the market generated a revenue of ~USD 2 billion in the year 2022. Growing demand for organic food products, with consumers trying to boost their health and immunity naturally, is the primary factor contributing to the growth of the global biofertilizer market. There was a significant rise in the annual sales of organic food in the United States (U.S.) with the onset of COVID-19, as the sales increased from ~ USD 50 billion in 2019 to ~ USD 57 billion in 2020.






The growing need for organic food products, combined with prevention of chemical-borne diseases, the inclination towards environmental sustainability, better taste and nutritional value also increases the need for organic food and result in biofertilizer market growth.

Global Biofertilizer Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Environmental Pollution from Chemical Fertilizers – the phosphates and nitrates in chemical fertilizers have been proven to be harmful to water bodies as their presence in the environment results in eutrophication and the formation of hypoxic water. These phenomena deteriorate the quality of waterbodies as the reduced oxygen level in the water makes it unsuitable for the survival of organisms, and the immoderate presence of harmful algal blooms adversely affects the recreational value. In 2021, synthetic N fertilizer was found to be a dangerous climate-polluting industrial chemical as its manufacturing and usage result in ~2% of global emissions.

  • Gradual Expansion of Precision Farming – In 2021, about one-fourth of the farms in the United States (U.S.) were estimated to be leveraging precision agricultural technologies.

  • Expensive Nature of Chemical Fertilizers – the use of chemical fertilizers has been observed to be ~31% more expensive than that of biofertilizers.

  • Worldwide Growth in Food Demand – The global demand for food has been projected to rise by ~40% by 2050.


  • Want in the Manufacturing Infrastructure for Biofertilizers

  • Reluctance in the Adoption of Biofertilizers for the Unawareness of Their Benefits

  • High Initial Investment Needed in the Market

The global biofertilizer market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by crop type into cereals, pulses & oilseeds, fruits & vegetables, and others. The surge in the need for organically produced fruits and vegetables worldwide following the pandemic is thought to result in the growth of the fruits & vegetable segment in the forecast period. Consumers are becoming more health conscious and aware of the harmful effects of chemical pesticides and fertilizers in the food, leading them to choose healthy organic food over others. This preference for organic food is also facilitated by the increase in per capita income and the purchasing capacities of consumers. It is estimated that of the total produce being sold in the U.S., about 15% is comprised of organic fruits and vegetables.


Global Biofertilizer Market Regional Synopsis
