Global Biofertilizer Market to Reach US$ 19 Billion by 2022

Biofertilizers are produced using organic wastes such as struvite and compost which contain living microorganisms like bacteria, fungi, and blue-green algae. Biofertilizers offer numerous advantages over chemical fertilizers. They assist in restoring the soil’s natural nutrient cycle and building organic matter, thereby, maintaining the overall health of the soil

In addition to this, they are eco-friendly unlike chemical fertilisers which cause environmental pollution. Owing to their various benefits, biofertilizers have today gained significance in the agriculture industry. According to a new report by Expert Market Research, the global biofertilizer market reached a value of around US$ 9 Billion in 2016 and is further expected to reach US$ 19 Billion by 2022.
