Biofertilizers are natural fertilizers which are microbial inoculants of bacteria, algae, and fungi alone, or in combination, and they augment the availability of nutrients to the plants. These biofertilizers enhance soil fertility by fixing atmospheric nitrogen and by mineralization of P & K. The global biofertilizers market, by type, is dominated by the nitrogen-fixing segment as nitrogen is the most essential nutrient for plants. The various microorganisms used as nitrogen-supplying biofertilizers are rhizobium, actinorhizae, azotobactor, and azospirillum. They are used for leguminous as well as non-leguminous crops. These biofertilizers are used to grow other crops as well, especially rice and sugarcane. After nitrogen-fixing biofertilizers,phosphate-solubilizing biofertilizers are widely used. Phosphate-solubilizing microbes secrete organic acids and lowers the pH in the soil which degeneratephosphates in the soil. Various phosphate-solubilizing microbes are species of pseudomonas, bacillus, penicillium, and aspergillus.

The biofertilizers market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 13.9% from 2014 to 2019. Geographically,the North American region hadthe highest demand for biofertilizersin 2013. The Asia-Pacific region is projected to be the fastest growing market for biofertilizers from 2014 to 2019.The biofertilizers market is estimated by segmenting the market into micromarkets, based on the share of each type, crop type,microorganism,and geographical region. The market data is available from 2012 to 2019 with a forecasted CAGR from 2014 to 2019.

The global biofertilizers market has grown exponentially in the last few years and the growth is expected to continue in the future. The nitrogen-fixing biofertilizers market is the largest among all types. The Asia-Pacific region is the fastest growing market in the industry. The market is highly fragmented at the regional level. The biofertilizers market is driven primarily by growth in the organic food industry. Another driver triggering the growth of the market is promotion by government agencies. Even after extensive efforts by the government to promote biofertilizers, lack of awareness about the concept itself is a restraining factor. The booming economy in several Asian countries has increased the bargaining power of consumers, which has resulted in an increase in the demand for organic products. Thus, the Asia-Pacific region is the emerging market in the global biofertilizers industry.

Biofertilizers, unlike chemical fertilizers, are not harmful to crops because they contain microorganisms that help to make the soil fertile. Microorganisms in biofertilizers help to increase the nutrient levels in plants. They are also environment-friendly and do not pollute. Application of biofertilizers in the soil makes plants healthy and protects them from diseases. Biofertilizers improve crop yields by making the soil nutrient-rich. Biofertilizers do not release harmful chemicals in soil, which helps in retaining soil fertility, which in turn, will be beneficial for the plants as well as the environment. Biofertilizers also destroy chemical components in soil, which cause diseases in the plants.
