For instance, in August 2022, Mycorrhizal Applications LLC, a subsidiary of Valent BioSciences, expanded its research facilities at Bio Research & Development Growth Park, St. Louis, Missouri. With this expansion, the company will expand its capacity for in vitro-related research to arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and expand its lab space at its headquarters.

In addition, rapid surge in the prices of synthetic fertilizers worldwide, along with the rising consumer awareness towards the several harmful effects and concerns associated with synthetic fertilizers on soil health and nutritional quality of food products, is critical factors likely to propel the consumption of biofertilizers in the next coming years.

In addition, with the rapidly growing global population, scarcity of food remains a very critical issue for governments all over the world, which has led to increased demand for innovations in terms of product development, which is anticipated to augment the demand and need for these fertilizers across all agricultural economies.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the growth of the mycorrhizae-based biofertilizers market. However, the effect of a pandemic on demand is low, but the main impact is on the logistic side owing to high disruptions in global supply chain. Since mycorrhizae-based biofertilizers could easily continue their day-to-day activity as it has been classified as a core business in many countries because of its link with production of food products.

Seed treatment segment accounted for the highest market share

Aggressive and continuously growing consumption of synthetic fertilizers and many other crop chemicals like pesticides and insecticides in recent years have led to deterioration in soil quality since several governments have imposed regulations on the agriculture sector, which is projected to have a positive impact on the seed treatment sector in biofertilizers.

Furthermore, soil application segment is projected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period due to its ability to improve soil conditions and make it more convenient for plants to absorb essential minerals from the soil. In addition, it helps soil mineralization by decomposing the available organic substances in the soil, enhancing its cultivation properties that are likely to fuel the segment market.

Agriculture segment held the largest market volume share in 2022

Due to increased production of various food products, including cereals and grains, fruits & vegetables, and many others, for healthy product development. In addition, the rapidly growing population burden, especially in countries like India and China, has led to high demand for agriculture; in turn, the market for mycorrhizae-based biofertilizers is increasing significantly.

Moreover, the oilseeds & pulses segment is anticipated to witness fastest growth over the study period, accelerated by increased demand for sunflower, soybean, and groundnuts worldwide. Additionally, various microbiological advancements in determining the best suitable composition of biofertilizers for cultivation are likely to contribute positively to the segment market growth shortly.

Ectomycorrhizae segment dominated the market in 2022

The ectomycorrhizas segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022, accelerated by increasing usage in various applications including commercial forestry, forest restoration, climate change mitigation, and phytoremediation. Moreover, the high efficiency of ECM in various ecosystems and many human activities such as addition of fertilizers, destruction of the structure of soil, rise in carbon dioxide levels globally, and ability to produce variation in the concentration of fungi.  About 7% of earth’s surface is affected by salinity, and this area is continuously increasing owing to irrigation practices and land clearing for agriculture. Hence, mycorrhizal interactions are used for desalinating soils or colonizing them using salt-tolerant species.

Liquid segment expected to hold a significant market share

The liquid segment is anticipated to hold the largest market share during the projected period. An ever-rising focus on food security mainly drives growth amidst a rapid increase in population, which has nudged authorities to increase their attention toward sustainable solutions. In addition, key market players' growing efforts on expanding their product portfolio and increasing number of mergers and acquisitions activities are further likely to boost the growth of the segment market during the coming years.

The demand in Asia Pacific is expected to witness significant growth

The Asia Pacific region is expected to grow rapidly over the coming years owing to increased consumer preferences towards the consumption of organic food and large numbers of government initiatives and reforms undertaken by governments of many developing Asian countries, including China, India, and Indonesia. Moreover, increasing investment by key market companies to establish their manufacturing units in these countries to cater to the growing need for biofertilizers is expected to fuel the market growth.

Furthermore, North America dominated the global market in 2022, with a significant market share due to increased government interventions in organic farming practices and early adoption of advanced and innovative products in countries like the U.S. and Canada. Moreover, rising consumer awareness towards the benefits associated with organic food consumption and high prevalence among farming committees about the long-term positive impact of mycorrhizae-based biofertilizers is driving the market’s growth in the region.
