Market Segmentation

"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. These fertilizers have the ability to correct the nitrogen level in the soil, hence they aid in proper growth of the crop, which will fuel the biofertilizers market demand. They 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.

Report Overview 

Biofertilizers are those preparations that exclusively contain latent cells of selected microbial strains that aid crop plants nutrients uptake when they are applied to the plant through soil or seed. Their demand across the globe is increasing extensively as they are a safe alternative to chemical fertilizers.

Biofertilizers are projected to play a vital role in catering to the demand of organic products, which is escalating significantly. Increasing adoption of this kind of fertilizers is not only an option to increase the crop yield significantly but also an assurance of sustainable farming and maintenance of long-term soil fertility by using natural resources. Lower adoption of such fertilizers in some countries, due to their lower awareness and other environmental factors are likely to suppress their growth.
