Government initiatives for the usage of organic fertilizers instead of chemical fertilizers along with increasing demand from the organic food industry are a few factors augmenting the demand from the European region.
Growing Popularity of Organic Food Driving Demand
Increasing land area under organic cultivation, advancements in organic fertilizers manufacturing processes, increasing health consciousness in the developed regions, and escalating awareness regarding the ill-effects of chemical fertilizers over the soil and environment overall are some of the most important factors driving the demand in the global organic fertilizers market. Organic fertilizers are primarily used for plant and soil nourishment. Made from plant wastes, animal wastes, and other minerals, organic fertilizers maintain their environment-friendly content and thus, provide favorable surroundings for the soil micro-organisms. As a result, activity of soil increases. As the awareness regarding these benefits increase, the demand for organic fertilizers is expected to increment accordingly.
On the other hand, high reliance on inorganic means of cultivation and high cost are two factors hindering the proper prosperity of the global organic fertilizers market. Nevertheless, increasing size of potential consumer base, particularly in the developed regions of Europe and North America are opening new opportunities for the vendors operating in the global organic fertilizers market.
