It offers biofertilizers products based on beneficial microorganisms with a proven effectiveness that are in symbiosis with plants to naturally aid in growth and nutrition.

  • Biofertilizers are living microorganisms that can enhance plant nutrition by either mobilizing or increasing nutrient availability in soils. The most common microorganisms used as biofertilizers in agriculture include mycorrhiza, Azospirillum, Azotobacter, Rhizobium, and phosphate-solubilizing bacteria.
  • Among these biofertilizers, mycorrhiza is most predominantly used in Europe and accounted for a market share of 62.8% in 2022, with a value of USD 54.9 million. Mycorrhiza is a fungus that establishes a symbiotic relationship with the plant root system. It increases the root surface area of plants, enhancing their nutrient uptake.
  • Rhizobium is the most important nitrogen-fixing bacterium that exists in a symbiotic relationship with plants and lives in the root nodules of leguminous plants. Rhizobium is the second most consumed biofertilizer in the region, accounting for a share of 13.2% in 2022.
  • It has been found that 40-250 kg of nitrogen per hectare per year is fixed in different legume crops by the microbial activities of Rhizobium. The European Union is planning to transition toward sustainable plant protein production by expanding the area under leguminous crop cultivation. This move may potentially drive the Rhizobium segment of the market.
  • Azospirillum and Azotobacter are free-living, nitrogen-fixing bacteria that can fix atmospheric nitrogen and make it available to plants in a non-symbiotic manner. Biological nitrogen fixation contributes to soil fertility and crop productivity. Due to the increasing demand for food production, the use of Azotobacter in the European region is anticipated to grow.
Europe Biofertilizer Market
  • The European biofertilizer market has experienced significant growth in recent years, primarily driven by the increasing demand for organically grown food in countries like Germany, France, and Italy. During the historical period (2017-2022), the region's organically cultivated area grew from 4.9 million ha to 7.3 million ha, resulting in a 28.1% increase in the biofertilizer market.
  • To support the growth of organic farming practices in Europe, in 2021, the European Commission unveiled an action plan to increase the organic area in member countries to occupy 25.0% of the region's agricultural land area by 2030. In response, governments across the region are providing subsidies to organic farmers and diverting agricultural budgets toward promoting organic farming practices.
  • For example, in 2022, the German government planned to subsidize organic farmers with a budget of USD 35.46 billion, while the Italian government invested USD 3.54 billion through the National Strategic Plan to promote organic agriculture. Italy aims to convert 25.0% of its agricultural land to organic farming by 2027, three years ahead of the target set by the European Commission.
  • In terms of market consumption, France was the largest market in Europe for plant biofertilizers, accounting for a 21.1% share in 2022, followed by Italy (15.8%) and Spain (10.5%).
  • The growth of the European biofertilizer market is expected to continue due to the increasing popularity of organic farming practices and rising government initiatives driving the transition toward more sustainable agricultural practices.

Europe Biofertilizer Market Trends

European Green Deal is majorly contributing for increasing organic cultivation, Italy majorly holding largest area under organic

  • European countries are increasingly promoting organic farming, and the amount of land categorized as organic has significantly increased over the last 10 years. In March 2021, the European Commission launched an organic action plan to achieve the European Green Deal target of ensuring that 25% of agricultural land is under organic farming by 2030. Austria, Italy, Spain, and Germany are among the leading countries for organic cultivation in the European region. Italy has 15.0% of its agricultural area under organic farming, which is higher than the EU average of 7.5%.
  • In 2021, organic land in the European Union was recorded at 14.7 million hectares. The agricultural production area is divided into three main types of use: arable land crops (mainly cereals, root crops, and fresh vegetables), permanent grassland, and permanent crops (fruit trees and berries, olive groves, and vineyards). The area of organic arable land was 6.5 million hectares in 2021, the equivalent of 46% of the European Union's total organic agricultural area.
  • The organic cultivation area of cereals, oilseeds, protein crops, and pulses in the European Union increased by 32.6% between 2017 and 2021, amounting to more than 1.6 million hectares. With 1.3 million hectares in production, perennial crops accounted for 15% of the organic land in 2020. Olives, grapes, almonds, and citrus fruits are a few examples of crops in this group. Spain, Italy, and Greece are significant growers of organic olive trees, with production amounting to 197,000, 179,000, and 47,000 hectares, respectively, in recent years.
  • Both olives and grapes are crucial for the European agricultural industry because they can be turned into specialty products that are in demand locally and globally. The increasing organic acreage in the region is expected to strengthen the organic agricultural industry in Europe.

Growing demand for organic food, rising the per capita spending, Germany being the largest organic food market in the region

  • European consumers are increasingly purchasing goods made using natural materials and methods. Even though organic food still only makes up a fraction of the European Union's overall agricultural production, it is no longer a niche industry. The European Union represents the second-largest single market for organic goods internationally, with an average per capita spending of USD 74.8 annually. The per capita spending on organic food in Europe has doubled in the last decade. In 2020, Swiss and Danish consumers spent the most on organic food (USD 494.09 and USD 453.90 per capita, respectively.
  • Germany is the largest organic food market in Europe and the second largest market in the world after the United States, with a market size of USD 6.3 billion in 2021 and a per capita consumption of USD 75.6, as per Global Organic Trade data. The country accounted for 10.0% of the global organic food demand and is estimated to record a CAGR of 2.7% between 2021 and 2026.
  • The organic food market in France witnessed strong growth, with a 12.6% rise in retail sales in 2021. The country's per capita spending on organic food was recorded at USD 88.8 in 2021, as per Global Organic Trade data. In 2018, as recorded by the Agence BIO/Spirit Insight Barometer, 88% of French people declared having consumed organic products. The preservation of health, environment, and animal welfare are the primary justifications for consuming organic foods in France.
  • The organic market has begun to grow in several other nations, including Spain, the Netherlands, and Sweden, with the opening of organic stores. Organic food sales grew during and post the COVID-19 pandemic as consumers began paying more attention to health issues and learned the adverse effects of conventionally grown food.

  • Rhizobium is the most important nitrogen-fixing bacterium that exists in a symbiotic relationship with plants and lives in the root nodules of leguminous plants. Rhizobium is the second most consumed biofertilizer in the region, accounting for a share of 13.2% in 2022.
  • It has been found that 40-250 kg of nitrogen per hectare per year is fixed in different legume crops by the microbial activities of Rhizobium. The European Union is planning to transition toward sustainable plant protein production by expanding the area under leguminous crop cultivation. This move may potentially drive the Rhizobium segment of the market.
  • Azospirillum and Azotobacter are free-living, nitrogen-fixing bacteria that can fix atmospheric nitrogen and make it available to plants in a non-symbiotic manner. Biological nitrogen fixation contributes to soil fertility and crop productivity. Due to the increasing demand for food production, the use of Azotobacter in the European region is anticipated to grow.

Keyword Definition
Cash Crops​ Cash crops are non-consumable crops sold as a whole or part of the crop to manufacture end-products to make a profit.
Integrated Pest Management (IPM)​ IPM is an environment-friendly and sustainable approach to control pests in various crops. It involves a combination of methods, including biological controls, cultural practices, and selective use of pesticides.
Bacterial biocontrol agents​ Bacteria used to control pests and diseases in crops. They work by producing toxins harmful to the target pests or competing with them for nutrients and space in the growing environment. Some examples of commonly used bacterial biocontrol agents include Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), Pseudomonas fluorescens, and Streptomyces spp.​
Plant Protection Product (PPP)​ A plant protection product is a formulation applied to crops to protect from pests, such as weeds, diseases, or insects. They contain one or more active substances with other co-formulants such as solvents, carriers, inert material, wetting agents or adjuvants formulated to give optimum product efficacy.​
Pathogen​ A pathogen is an organism causing disease to its host, with the severity of the disease symptoms.​
Parasitoids​ Parasitoids are insects that lay their eggs on or within the host insect, with their larvae feeding on the host insect. In agriculture, parasitoids can be used as a form of biological pest control, as they help to control pest damage to crops and decrease the need for chemical pesticides.​
Entomopathogenic Nematodes (EPN)​ Entomopathogenic nematodes are parasitic roundworms that infect and kill pests by releasing bacteria from their gut. Entomopathogenic nematodes are a form of biocontrol agents used in agriculture.​
Vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhiza (VAM)​ VAM fungi are mycorrhizal species of fungus. They live in the roots of different higher-order plants. They develop a symbiotic relationship with the plants in the roots of these plants.​
Fungal biocontrol agents​ Fungal biocontrol agents are the beneficial fungi that control plant pests and diseases. They are an alternative to chemical pesticides. They infect and kill the pests or compete with pathogenic fungi for nutrients and space.​
Biofertilizers​ Biofertilizers contain beneficial microorganisms that enhance soil fertility and promote plant growth.​
Biopesticides​ Biopesticides are natural/bio-based compounds used to manage agricultural pests using specific biological effects.​
Predators​ Predators in agriculture are the organisms that feed on pests and help control pest damage to the crops. Some common predator species used in agriculture include ladybugs, lacewings, and predatory mites.​
Biocontrol agents​ Biocontrol agents are living organisms used to control pests and diseases in agriculture. They are alternatives to chemical pesticides and are known for their lesser impact on the environment and human health.​
Organic Fertilizers​ Organic fertilizer is composed of animal or vegetable matter used alone or in combination with one or more non-synthetically derived elements or compounds used for soil fertility and plant growth.​
