North America held the largest share of the global biofertilizer market in 2020 owing to growing demand for organic products, growing acceptance of biofertilizers by rural farmers, and increasing adoption of advanced irrigation systems such as drip and sprinkler irrigation for fertigation. In addition, increased government intervention in agricultural practices in the region has led to significant changes in agricultural trends and methods in the United States and Canada and an increase in organic farming in the region.

Additionally, Asia-Pacific (APAC) is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR from 2020 to 2028. Growth in the APAC region can be attributed to growing consumer preference for organic food consumption coupled with regulatory initiatives and the agricultural reforms undertaken by the governments of various Asian countries. Farmers in APAC countries are choosing biofertilizers over synthetic and chemical fertilizers due to the growing demand for organic farming. Additionally, it will help prevent soil and water contamination from the application of chemicals.

Growing need for alternatives to chemical fertilizers to fuel the demand for biofertilizers:
The demand for biofertilizers is increasing globally owing to the growing adoption of organic foods globally. Biofertilizers have properties that increase the level of nitrogen and phosphorus in plants more naturally than other fertilizers and improve the soil by restoring its normal fertility. In addition to this, biofertilizers also improve soil texture and quality, which helps plants grow better in harsh conditions, such as drought. Additionally, biofertilizers are cheap and easy-to-use alternatives to manufactured petrochemicals. In addition, the use of bio-based fertilizers in agricultural fields contributes significantly to the decomposition of organic residues and the overall development of plants and crops. Hence, the above mentioned factors are driving the growth of the market and increasing the demand for biofertilizers globally.
