The downstream demand for organically produced products by consumers across the U.S., Canada, and western European countries, coupled with macroeconomic development in countries such as China, India, and Brazil, is expected to continue propelling the growth of the organic fertilizers market in the coming years. A report from PS Market Research projected that: “Increasing acreage and the number of organically farmed areas; growing downstream demand for organic food and beverages; and favorable government policies and initiatives toward organic farming are the key factors positively impacting the growth of the organic fertilizers market, globally. On account of these factors, the market is projected to generate revenue worth $14,746.2 million by 2030, advancing at a CAGR of 14.1% during the forecast period (2020–2030), according to the market research report published by P&S Intelligence. The organic fertilizers market has been categorized into plant, animal, among which animal-based organic fertilizers accounted for the largest share in 2019. Fertilizers derived from fish waste and other animal bones are high in nutritional value and, therefore, facilitate healthy growth in crops. Moreover, there is increased awareness among farmers across the world about the nutritional benefits of animal-based fertilizers and, thus, the consumption of these fertilizers continues to be high.” Active stocks in the markets this week include SusGlobal Energy Corp. (OTCQB: SNRG), The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company (NYSE: SMG), The Mosaic Company (NYSE: MOS), Nutrien Ltd. (NYSE: NTR), CF Industries Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CF).
PS Market Research concluded: “The organic fertilizers market has been categorized into plant, animal, and others on the basis of source, among which animal-based organic fertilizers accounted for the largest share in (recent years). Fertilizers derived from fish waste and other animal bones are high in nutritional value and, therefore, facilitate healthy growth in crops. Moreover, there is increased awareness among farmers across the world about the nutritional benefits of animal-based fertilizers and, thus, the consumption of these fertilizers continues to be high. Geographically, the organic fertilizers market is expected to demonstrate the fastest growth in the Rest of World (RoW) region during the forecast period. A considerable production of quinoa is chiefly responsible for the high-volume market demand for compound in the region. The quinoa production is primarily concentrated in the Latin American (LATAM) countries of Uruguay, Mexico, and Argentina. Thus, owing to its high production, the organic fertilizers market in the region is expected to demonstrate notable growth in the forecast period.”

Other recent developments in the markets include:
The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company (NYSE: SMG), the world’s leading marketer of branded consumer lawn and garden as well as indoor and hydroponic growing products, recently lowered its full-year sales guidance for its Hawthorne segment and said the reduction would likely lead to adjusted earnings per share that are lower than previously expected.
Speaking at the Raymond James 43rdAnnual Institutional Investors Conference, chief financial officer Cory Miller said the Company now expects Hawthorne sales to decline 15 to 25 percent, including the benefit of acquisitions. Sales in the segment have been challenged for several months due to an oversupply of cannabis, which is leading to a slowdown in both indoor and outdoor cultivation.
“We believe Hawthorne sales have found the bottom in terms of average daily volume,” Miller explained. “However, there is a seasonal element to the business that would normally be in play by now that has not materialized to the extent we anticipated. While sales volume has begun to improve recently, the year-over-year rate of decline has expanded and that trend appears likely to carry through March.”
