Key Market Trends

Rising Organic Farm Land

The rise in demand for organic products is booming, not only due to the increase in conscientious consumers, but also due to rising incomes, along with improved farming practices that make organic yields more robust. As a result, the increasing demand for organic food, worldwide, has increased the area under organic farming. For instance as per the FiBL statistics, the area under global organic farming increased from 58, 090.5 thousand hectares in 2016 to 72,285.6 thousand hectares in 2019. The factor such as increase in organic farming practices resulted in improved soil fertility, along with the extensive usage of organic products, like biofertilizers. This has further triggered the demand for biofertilizer products, as they are organic and help in maintaining the ecological balance. 

Global Biofertilizers Market

Europe Dominates the Biofertilizers Market

Europe is the largest market for biofertilizers and accounted for major share of the global market share in 2020. In Europe, the Germainy, Spain, France holds the largest share, with more than half of the European share. The rise in organic and environment-friendly farming practices has increased the demand for biofertilizer products, particularly in the France and Germany. As per the sustainability strategy of the Germany government, it is planning to convert 20% of the total agricultural land into organic agricultural land by 2030. 

The multi advantages of biofertilizers lead to their wide applicability, as well as increased adoption and usage of biofertilizers in sustainable agriculture. The positive agricultural outlook in the country has propelled the demand for bio-based products in the region. The Europe region is expected to retain its market in the coming future, due to the increased use of bio-based crop nutrition products and rising food quality standards.
