Ability to Generate Food Production without Being a Threat to the Environment is Likely to Propel Phosphase Solubilizers

Nitrogen-fixing biofertilizers have been widely used by farmers in the production of various high-demand crops, such as wheat, rice, oilseeds, and others. Nitrogen biofertilizers have the ability to correct the nitrogen level in the soil, hence they aid in proper growth of the crop. Nitrogen biofertilizers are broadly classified into free-living, symbiotic, and associative symbiotic.

The demand for phosphate solubilizing biofertilizers is projected to witness strong growth during the projected period from 2019 to 2026. According to research findings, inoculating crop seeds with phosphate solubilizing microorganisms is a promising strategy to aid global food production without causing harm to the environment. A better understanding of the advancements in phosphate solubilizing microbe’s functional diversity and their mode of actions is projected to impact their growth crucially in the forthcoming years.

On the basis of application, the global biofertilizers market has been classified into seed treatment, soil treatment, and others. In 2018, seed treatment accounted for the highest share in the global market. Application of biofertilizers in seed treatment offers various agronomic benefits and reduces the negative environmental impact. Hence, its application in seed treatment is expected to increase by an impressive CAGR of 12.1% during the forecast period.

By Microorganism, the biofertilizers market is classified into Rhizobium, Azotobacter, Azospirillum, Pseudomonas, Bacillus, VAM, and others. On the basis of crop type, the global biofertilizers market has been segmented into cereals & grains, pulses & oilseeds, fruits & vegetables, and others.
