The Japan Biofertilizers Market Size is expected to reach USD 183.6 million by 2030, at a CAGR of 10.87% during the forecast period 2022 to 2030. The Japanese biofertilizers market is anticipated to expand significantly during the study period, Japan's demand for biofertilizers is being driven by an increase in demand for sustainable and eco-friendly farming practices, as well as a growing awareness among farmers about the benefits of using biofertilizers instead of chemical fertilizers.


Market Overview

Biofertilizers are biological products containing living microorganisms that, when applied to seed, plant surfaces, or soil, promote growth through a variety of mechanisms such as increasing nutrient supply, root biomass or root area, and plant nutrient uptake capacity. Biofertilizers can form symbiotic relationships with plant roots and convert complex organic matter into simpler compounds, enriching the soil with organic matter and promoting plant growth. The biofertilizers market is expected to grow steadily in the coming years due to rising demand for fertilizers that are compatible with sustainable and organic farming and agriculture practices. Some of the key factors driving the Japan biofertilizers market growth are increased soil fertility, increased nutrient absorption by plants, and low risk to human health associated with biofertilizers. The Government of Japan is implementing several initiatives, such as farm-level extension and direct production subsidies, which are resulting in positive market growth opportunities. Furthermore, various technological advancements, such as strain improvement using genomic and biotechnological tools for improved nutrient fixation and plant growth, are contributing to the market's growth.

Driving Factors

The major factor driving the Japan market is increased awareness of the harmful effects of chemical fertilizers on the environment. Governmental support is also a key driver of the market, as the over-use of chemical fertilizers and their potential negative effects on human health has encouraged the promotion of biofertilizers. Manufacturers are also concentrating on bacterial biofilm carriers, nanotechnology-based microbial inoculants, and artificial selection of plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) to produce more enriched and effective product varieties, which is also expected to drive the Japan biofertilizers market growth.


Restraining Factors

Biofertilizers have a higher production cost than conventional fertilizers because they require specialized machinery and equipment. Biofertilizers have a lower nutrient density than conventional fertilizers, requiring more products to achieve the same effect. This factor is expected to limit market growth during the forecasted years.
