Highest Growing Market


According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Mycorrhizae-based Biofertilizers Market is accounted for $383.60 million in 2023 and is expected to reach $1,281.14 million by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 18.8% during the forecast period. Fungi called mycorrhizae stay in the soil and roots of higher plants. They associate with plant roots in a non-host-specific way. A fungus known as mycorrhizae creates a symbiotic relationship with the roots of an avascular host plant. The roots of plants and soil fungi interact symbiotically and mutualistically through mycorrhizae. By improving nutrient uptake and fostering growth hormones, mycorrhiza-based bio fertilizers stimulate plant growth.

According to the UN population division, the world’s population is expected to reach 9.7 billion people in 2050 and about 11 billion people around 2100. As a result, agricultural production must be actively encouraged to meet the growing need for food worldwide.

Market Dynamics:


Increasing demand for organic food

The demand for mycorrhizae-based biofertilizers is anticipated to be driven by the need to maintain a healthy lifestyle through the consumption of organic food and the growing demand for organic farming practices to reduce soil pollution. Additionally, the growing demand for healthy food and the farming industry's production of organic vegetables may help reduce rural poverty and unemployment in developing nations. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increase in demand for mycorrhizae-based biofertilizers as a result of promoting the production of organic fruits and vegetables, which also has positive effects on the environment.


High cost for production

The growth of the global market for mycorrhiza-based biofertilizers is predicted to be constrained by the high production costs of these fertilizers. Mycorrhizae-based biofertilizers are made using intricate manufacturing procedures that demand expensive machinery and skilled labor. Additionally, the cost of the raw materials used to make these biofertilizers, such as the carrier materials and fungal spores, is also high. Due to this, the biofertilizer's final cost is relatively high, making it more expensive for small-scale farmers to use. Small-scale farmers make up a sizable portion of the agricultural community across regions, so this can be a significant barrier to the market's expansion.


Increase in crop productivity and yield

Mycorrhizae-based biofertilizers have emerged as a key tool in contemporary agriculture, contributing to improved crop productivity, increased farm profitability, and superior yields. These biofertilizers increase plant growth and healthier root systems by fostering a symbiotic relationship with plant roots. This increases nutrient absorption and productivity. They enhance nutrient availability and water retention, improving long-term soil health in contrast to chemical fertilizers. Additionally, mycorrhizae-based biofertilizers help plants adapt to climate change because mycorrhizal-associated plants are more resilient to environmental stresses. By improving productivity, soil health, and climate resilience while aligning with sustainable practices for a greener future, mycorrhizae-based biofertilizers revolutionize agriculture.


Lack of knowledge and education

Despite mycorrhizae-based biofertilizers' enormous potential, farmers' lack of awareness and education pose a significant obstacle to their widespread adoption in modern agriculture. Many agricultural professionals are still unsure of the advantages and proper application of these biofertilizers, which causes skepticism and resistance to incorporating them into farming practices. Moreover, this lack of knowledge is influenced by things like the ineffective communication of the benefits of mycorrhizal symbiosis for crop productivity. Farmers are further prevented from understanding the specific requirements and best practices for using mycorrhizae-based biofertilizers by the lack of formal training and extension services.

Covid-19 Impact:

The global market for mycorrhiza-based biofertilizers was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in both positive and negative ways. Positively, the pandemic increased demand for organic food items, which in turn increased demand for mycorrhiza-based biofertilizers. It's because consumers are becoming more concerned with their health and are seeking out food items free of pesticides and dangerous chemicals. A shortage of raw materials and production delays were brought on by the pandemic, which also disrupted the world's supply chain. Mycorrhiza-based biofertilizers now cost more, making them more out of reach for farmers, particularly small-scale farmers.

The liquid segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

During the anticipated period, the liquid segment of the market for mycorrhiza-based biofertilizers is anticipated to account for the largest market share. Liquid biofertilizers are simple to use and can be quickly absorbed by plants through the roots or leaves, resulting in quicker growth and better yields. Moreover, liquid biofertilizers are also easier to store and transport because they have a longer shelf life than solid formulations. In order to better address particular plant growth requirements, liquid biofertilizers can be tailored with particular nutrient formulations. In the global market for mycorrhiza-based biofertilizers, these elements have helped the liquid segment gain popularity and expand.

The agriculture segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The agriculture segment is anticipated to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Agriculture sector includes a wide variety of crops and farming techniques and is a significant user of biofertilizers, including those based on mycorrhizae. Mycorrhizae-based biofertilizers are being used more and more by farmers in subsectors like cereals, oilseeds, pulses, fruits, and vegetables to improve soil health, increase crop yields, and practice sustainable farming methods. Additionally, these biofertilizers have proven to be highly beneficial, enhancing nutrient uptake, water absorption, and overall plant growth, thus supporting the industry's growing emphasis on eco-friendly and effective agricultural solutions.

Region with largest share:

During the anticipated period, North America will hold the largest market share for mycorrhizae-based biofertilizers. The region's prominence is due in part to the United States and Canada, which were early adopters of biofertilizers and sustainable agricultural techniques. Moreover, Mycorrhizae-based biofertilizers have been increasingly adopted in North America as a result of additional factors, including rising environmental awareness, rising demand for organic products, research and development activities, supportive governmental policies, and the presence of significant market players.

Region with highest CAGR:

The Mycorrhizae-based Biofertilizers Market is anticipated to have highest CAGR in Europe during the forecasted period. Mycorrhizae-based biofertilizers have become increasingly popular due to the region's embrace of sustainable agriculture and rising demand for organic goods. Furthermore, strict regulations supporting organic farming and limiting the use of chemicals also contribute to the market's expansion in Europe. The demand for biofertilizers based on mycorrhizae is expected to increase in Europe as the region places more emphasis on sustainable agriculture.
