The global blue-green algae fertilizer market is estimated to grow at a noteworthy CAGR over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2030. Blue-green algae (BGA), also known as, cyanobacteria, have been developed as a prominent part of organic farming, as these organisms act as a fertilizer for the soil. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing trend of organic fertilizers and pesticides over chemicals, backed by rising environmental awareness. Chemical-based fertilizers pollute the crop, seep into ground polluting the groundwater, and accumulate in the water bodies, causing loss of aquatic life. Moreover, these fertilizers make the soil barren overtime, and are non-biodegradable. Excessive use of chemical fertilizers was responsible for massive water pollution, which is why organic or bio-fertilizers were introduced. BGA is one of the primarily used biofertilizer, owing to its nitrogen fixing properties. Use of BGA can reduce urea by almost 25% with an overall 4% increase in the yield for paddy crops. This is estimated to boost the market growth. Moreover, government initiatives to curb the pollution caused by ammonia-based fertilizers is also expected to boost the market growth. UNEP established a campaign “Halve Nitrogen Waste”, which aims to cut the nitrogen emission in air and water by 50% by 2030.
The blue-green algae fertilizer market is segmented by end-user into organic farms, nursery, domestic, and others, out of which, the organic farms segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the market on account of rising adoption of organic farming, especially in developed countries, coupled with government initiatives to promote the use of BGA on a mass level. Moreover, subsidies on biofertilizers, along with specific stores for organic produce are some of the factors estimated to boost the segment growth. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT
