The biofertilizers market was valued at USD 946.6 Million in 2015; the market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 14.08% from 2016 to 2022. With the increasing pressure on global food production and development in technologies of fertilizer production, the demand for fertilizers is expected to increase, which in turn would enhance the growth of the biofertilizers market.

The objective of the study is to define, segment, and measure the biofertilizers market. This market has been segmented on the basis of type, crop type, microorganism, mode of application, form, and region, which has been further segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Rest of the World (RoW). The report also aims at providing detailed information regarding the crucial factors influencing the growth of the market (drivers, restraints, opportunities, and industry-specific challenges) and to analyze opportunities in the market for stakeholders and details of the competitive landscape for market leaders. For the purpose of the study, 2015 is considered as the base year, and 2016 and 2022 are considered as the estimated and the projected years, respectively.

This report includes estimations of market sizes in terms of value (USD million) and volume (KT). Both, top-down and bottom-up approaches have been used to estimate and validate the size of the global biofertilizers market, and to estimate the size of various other dependent submarkets in the overall market. The key players in the market have been identified through secondary sources (such as Factiva, Hoovers, International Fertilizer Association [IFA] and British Agrochemicals Association), and their market share in the respective regions have been determined through primary and secondary research. All percentage shares, splits, and breakdowns have been determined using secondary sources and verified through primary sources.

The biofertilizers market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 14.08% during the forecast period, to reach a projected value of USD 2,305.5 Million by 2022. The demand for biofertilizers is completely dependent on the growth of the fertilizer industry. Furthermore, the shrinking arable land, adoption of new technology, and the increasing willingness of farmers to spend more for higher productivity are some important factors that contribute to the increasing demand for biofertilizers. The shortage in the supply of agricultural products in the last five years has resulted in an increase in their prices, and subsequently led to the increase in agricultural production. As a result, the demand for fertilizers has increased, which is expected to drive the demand for biofertilizers.

The biofertilizers market is driven primarily by the growth in the organic food industry and increase in awareness regarding the health hazards caused by the use of chemical fertilizers. Moreover, government agencies are promoting the use of biofertilizers, which has also driven the market growth, globally.
