According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Organic Fertilizers Market is accounted for $9.6 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $15.2 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period. Agricultural waste, animal waste, earthworm castings, and cow manure are some examples of the materials or sources used to make organic fertilizer. Water retention benefits from organic fertilizers. By becoming gaseous and loosening the soil's hold so that plant roots can access air, organic fertilizers also contribute to the soil's overall lightening. In addition to being good for the health of the soil, they prevent salt buildup. They are nutrient-rich and kind to the environment, organic fertilizers. As people become more conscious of the effects of chemical fertilizers, organic fertilizers are being adopted at a rapid rate. The market for organic fertilizer will likely be driven in the coming years by rising consumer demand for and adoption of environmentally friendly agricultural products. Furthermore, the market growth for organic fertilizers is being positively impacted by the escalating environmental concerns regarding sustainability, carbon footprints, and emission intensities.

According to the Ministry of Agriculture & Farmer's Welfare, India produced 33.42 million tonnes of oilseeds in 2019–20, 1.90 million tonnes more than the 31.52 million tonnes produced in 2018–19. The global market for organic fertilizers will thus continue to be driven by the use of organic fertilizers in agriculture.

Market Dynamics:


Increasing awareness regarding environmental safety

Globally, it has become customary to use chemical fertilizers to increase agricultural production. Overuse of chemical fertilizers contaminates the soil and the water. To increase agricultural production, organic fertilizers are made with natural plant waste and residue, animal manures and excrement, microorganisms, and botanical extracts. Organic fertilizers quickly break down without harming the surface or groundwater, making them less dangerous to life. These fertilizers enhance soil structure, last a very long time, and have a higher capacity to hold water and nutrients. So the demand for organic fertilizers is increased by factors like the growing need to increase agricultural production and awareness of the negative effects of chemical inputs and the positive effects of organic fertilizers.


Lack of knowledge among farmers and less nutrients

In the short term, organic fertilizers are used, but healthy soil has a lower cost-benefit ratio. Apart from a few biofertilizers, organic fertilizers are also bigger and heavier than chemical fertilizers. In consequence, the total nutrients derived from a unit quantity of organic fertilizers are much lower than those derived from chemical fertilizers. Moreover, farmers in developing and underdeveloped countries face a significant barrier due to their ignorance of organic fertilizers.


Growing demand for organic farming

As environmental concerns such as the overuse of chemical fertilizers and pesticides have left the land arid, many businesses are switching to organic farming and cost-cutting measures in the agricultural sector, which is fueling demand globally. Many companies have shifted to using plant-based fertilizers as a result of strict regulations on conventional fertilizers and worries that using chemical fertilizers will leave the land barren. India's exports of agricultural goods are anticipated to surpass US$50 billion in the fiscal year FY22, according to the Ministry of Commerce. The industry for organic fertilizers will therefore continue to grow due to the use of plant-based fertilizers in agriculture.


Availability of substitutes

The growth of the market for organic fertilizers will be hampered by the availability of substitute products or potential replacement products like chemical fertilizers or synthetic fertilizers in a particular market segment. Buyers will attempt to negotiate lower prices while putting a higher emphasis on quality and service. The cost of organic fertilizer equipment will be transparent. The demands and rivalry of rivals will all result in a loss of profit for the equipment supplier of organic fertilizer. Additionally, this fertilizer's high cost has restricted its use in large-scale agricultural production, such as the production of commodity crops. Over the forecast period, this is expected to limit the market expansion of organic fertilizers.

Covid-19 Impact

The organic fertilizers market faced significant challenges in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. In contrast to other industries, the market for organic fertilizers had a detrimental effect on overall growth. The production and distribution of fertilizers are expected to be significantly impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. Disruptions in logistics are occurring in many parts of the world, which has an effect on a variety of industries, including agriculture and others. Due to sudden restrictions placed on the purchase of these products during the coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic, prices of organic fertilizer products have started to decline globally along with the decline in demand. As a result, the decline in demand in the agricultural sector is thought to be impeding the development of the organic fertilizers market.

The Dry organic fertilizers segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

During the forecast period, Dry organic fertilizers segment is expected to witness the largest market share. The growing use of dry organic fertilizers for lawn and garden applications, their long-lasting effects, their high efficacy in all climatic conditions, and their widespread and simple availability of raw materials are all factors that contribute to this segment's largest market share.

The Cereals & Grains segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The cereals and grains segment is anticipated to experience highest CAGR during the forecast period. Both crop yield and quality are positively impacted by the product. It increases resistance to heat, drought, cold, and fertilizers high in nitrogen. Additionally, it strengthens the cationic bonds in the soil, which helps plant roots penetrate the soil more deeply. Moreover, huge tracts of land are being used for the cultivation of organic cereals and grains, and demand for these products is rising, which is responsible for the high growth of this market.

Region with largest share:

The Asia-Pacific region is predicted to hold the largest market share for organic fertilizers over the forecast period. The significant market share of this region is due to rising health consciousness, extensive organic farming, rapid population and income growth, increased mechanization and irrigation infrastructure, and the presence of numerous organic operators. Moreover, the development of the organic fertilizers market in this region is also supported by favorable government policies and initiatives by other organizations for the promotion and expansion of the organics industry.

Region with highest CAGR:

During the forecast period, North America is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR. The rapid expansion of this market is attributed to the organics industry's growth as a result of rising consumer health consciousness, an expanding population and rising demand for organic products, steadily expanding organic farming areas, and government support as well as initiatives by other organizations and associations to advance organic agriculture and related industries throughout the region.
