Double-digit Growth Predicted for Biochar Fertilizers Market, COVID-19 Pandemic puts Existing Projections in Jeopardy – Future Market Insights

Technological breakthroughs in agriculture such as pyrolysis have been instrumental in enhancing soil quality and sequestering carbon levels, elevating the use of biochar fertilizers on a higher pedestal.

PUNE, INDIA / ACCESSWIRE / June 9, 2020 / Over the years, sustainable agricultural practices have acquired immense importance. Increased tendencies towards utilizing inorganic fertilizers has drastically degraded soil quality, leading to inferior agricultural output. Concerned by this, farmers have made conscious attempts to wean off of such harmful chemicals. They have realized that the opportunity cost of soil fertility loss in the wake of faster yields is not worth it. Therefore, a shift towards organic farming has been witnessed. On the back of this, the biochar fertilizer market shall exhibit a robust growth outlook in the forecast period 2020-2030.

Biochar fertilizers is slated to find greater acceptance as concerns for the environment grows with each passing day. Governments have formulated coherent stringent policies and enacted legislations to counter environmental degradation. Countries are wholeheartedly encouraging use of biochar fertilizers in agriculture, broadening its prospects. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has impeded growth prospects, with production facilities being inhibited due to curbs on economic activities to contain the virus. Consequently, a stagnancy is anticipated over the short-term forecast.

“Burgeoning awareness about the benefits of organic fertilizers has prompted consumers to opt for biochar fertilizers over chemical ones. Temporary cessation of production attributed to COVID-19 shall hamper market prospects in the near future. Market players are putting their best foot forward to ensure minimal supply chain disruptions to ensure continuity of operations,” says a leading FMI analyst.

Anticipated Impact of the COVID-19 Outbreak

The coronavirus pandemic has upset the world’s economic cart. Nationwide lockdowns imposed to contain the spread of the pandemic has generated a recessionary pattern across multiple industries. The biochar fertilizer market is among the markets which have been adversely affected. Social distancing measures have compelled farmers to remain indoors.

This has reduced farming activity, causing a dip in the demand for biochar fertilizers. However, growth is anticipated to pick up pace eventually. Countries such as China and India have eased restrictions imposed during the lockdown, enabling production cycles and supply chains to revert to normalcy.

As logistical capabilities rebound, key manufacturers will find it easier to import the raw materials required to produce biochar, offsetting the current demand-supply gap. Presently, manufacturers are looking to leverage their existing supply chains by resorting to staggered work timings for their on-site staff, ensuring basic social distancing protocols, regular temperature screenings of employees and mandatory sanitizing and washing of hands by employees over regular intervals. Such measures have helped the biochar fertilizer market remain afloat during the pandemic.
