Market size and forecast

The global bio-fertilizers market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 13.6% over the forecast period i.e. 2016-2023. Further, the global market estimated to reach USD 1. 58 Billion by 2023 from USD 610.2 Million in 2015. The global market of biofertilizers is expected to uplift on the back of rising demand of organic food and growing awareness towards the benefit of bio-fertilizers among the farmers

North-America had accounted the largest revenue share of 31.3% in 2015 of overall biofertilizers market across the globe. Growing demand of organic food in U.S. and Canada is likely to upsurge the market of North-America in near future. Further, the bio-fertilizers market of North-America region is estimated to grow significantly at a CAGR of 15.6% over the forecast period i.e. 2016-2023 on account of growing preference towards organic food in order to maintain health and fitness and rising awareness towards harmful effects of chemical fertilizers on environment.
