Market Overview

The Azotobacter based Bio-Fertilizer Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.7% during the forecast period (2020-2025). The increased practice of organic farming and the increasing demand for organic food are the two major factors that are driving the growth of the azotobacter based bio-fertilizer market. Also, the favorable policies implemented by the government for organic farming are augmenting the growth of the market studied. Just like other producers of fertilizer products and other agricultural inputs, the azotobacter-based bio-fertilizer industry has faced particular challenges resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic that could have longer-term consequences for food production. Although food-chain businesses were essential in most countries at the onset of the pandemic, companies still faced operational difficulties which became better owing to the upliftment of the lockdown and thus, the market for these fertilizers flourished even during the pandemic owing to the increased demand for organic products.

Scope of the Report

Azotobacter is a genus that is motile, oval, or spherical bacteria. It has thick-walled cysts and produces large quantities of capsular slime. Azotobacter is capable of converting atmospheric nitrogen to ammonium nitrogen in the soil, giving the crop access to free atmospheric nitrogen. Azotobacter, also known as bio-balancer, secretes hygroscopic mucilage in the root-zone, which assists in retaining soil moisture. It is used as a biofertilizer during cultivation for most of the crops. The market is segmented by geography as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and the Middle East and Africa.
