Growth Drivers & Challenges
Governments of both developing and developed countries are taking various initiatives and initialization of number of programs to boost the agriculture sector. Government provides extensive support to farmers in order to purchase bio-fertilizers, which is expected to bolster the demand for bio-fertilizers across the globe. For instance, under the National Project on Organic Farming (NPOF), Government is promoting production of various organic inputs in the country which includes bio-fertilizers. Moreover, NPOF provides financial assistance up to 25% of total financial expense for setting up bio-fertilizers production units. Apart from this, governments are also increasing agricultural spending to encourage and to boost this sector. This factor is anticipated to intensify the demand for bio-fertilizers all across the globe. Subsequently, increasing food security concerns have led governments to take initiatives to encourage the agriculture sector which in turn fueling the demand for bio-fertilizers all across the globe.
However, weakening purchasing power of farmers is likely to limit the demand for bio-fertilizers across the globe. Moreover, weak implementation of agricultural laws and policies in underdeveloped countries is hampering the growth of agriculture sector which in turn likely to hamper the growth of global bio-fertilizers market.
