Biofertilizer Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023

Biofertilizers are natural fertilizers made from biological wastes which contain living micro-organisms. Unlike chemical fertilizers, biofertilizers are environment friendly. They enrich the soil with organic nutrients and improve the fertility of the soil which in turn promotes a healthy growth of the plant or the crop. Biofertilizers also make the plants disease resistant and help solve problems like increased salinity of the soil. In recent times, the understanding of environmental hazards of chemical fertilizers, mainly pollution and contamination of the soil and the food chain has pushed the demand of bio-fertilizers in the agriculture sector. Growing health concerns have also urged people to adopt organic foods. As the use of biofertilizers is mandatory in organic farming, the biofertilizer market is experiencing a strong growth all over the world. Another major factor driving the demand of biofertilizers is the increasing implementation of regulatory policies by various governments that favour the use of biofertilizers. According to IMARC Group, the global biofertilizer market was worth more than US$ 10.2 Billion in 2017, growing at a CAGR of around 13% during 2010-2017.
