Biofertilizers Market to USD 7.31 Billion by 2031, Propelled by Global Shift Towards Sustainable Farming Practices


According to the SNS Insider report, the Biofertilizers Market size was USD 3.2 billion in 2023 and is expected to Reach USD 7.31 billion by 2031 and grow at a CAGR of 10.8% over the forecast period of 2024-2031. The biofertilizers market is experiencing robust growth as agriculture undergoes a paradigm shift towards sustainable and environmentally friendly practices. Biofertilizers, which consist of living microorganisms that enhance soil fertility and plant nutrition, are gaining traction among farmers seeking alternatives to chemical fertilizers. These microbial-based products promote soil health, improve nutrient uptake by plants, and enhance crop productivity while minimizing the environmental impact associated with conventional fertilizer use.

One significant trend shaping the biofertilizers market is the growing emphasis on organic and regenerative agriculture practices. With increasing consumer demand for organic produce and concerns about soil degradation and nutrient depletion, farmers are turning to biofertilizers as an integral component of their soil management strategies. Biofertilizers, including nitrogen-fixing bacteria, phosphate-solubilizing fungi, and plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR), help restore soil biodiversity, improve nutrient cycling, and reduce reliance on synthetic fertilizers, thereby supporting sustainable farming practices and soil conservation efforts.
