Global Frass Fertilizer Market

Table of Contents

High cost of organic fertilizer and rising demand of organic products is expected to drive the Global Frass Fertilizer Market growth in the forecast period, 2025-2029.

According to TechSci Research report, “Frass Fertilizer Market – Global Industry Size, Share, Trends, Competition Forecast & Opportunities, 2019-2029F”, the Global Frass Fertilizer Market stood at USD 96.11 Million in 2023 and is anticipated to project steady growth in the forecast period with a CAGR of 5.94% through 2029. The growth of the global frass fertilizer market can be attributed to the rising demand for organic foods, increasing trend of insect farming which is utilized both for food and feed, and high cost of organic fertilizers.

The insect farming industry has experienced significant growth in recent years, driven by the demand for insect-based products in various sectors, including agriculture. Insect farms produce not only fertilizers but also animal feed, food products, and pharmaceutical ingredients. The expansion of insect farming provides a sustainable and scalable source of insect-based fertilizers, thereby driving the market. Ongoing research and technological advancements in insect farming techniques, processing methods, is increasing the formulation of insect-based frass fertilizers. Improved production processes, efficient extraction of nutrients from insects, and development of value-added products are enhancing the viability and attractiveness of frass fertilizers.

Collaboration among insect farming companies, agricultural organizations, and research institutions contributes to the growth of the frass fertilizer market. Partnerships allow for knowledge sharing, research and development, and increased market penetration, fostering innovation and market expansion to overcome food insecurity among low-income countries who are mostly dependent on export. With the rise of urbanization and limited availability of arable land, urban agriculture and rooftop farming have gained traction. Frass fertilizers offer a compact and efficient solution for nutrient-rich soil in urban farming environments. The increasing popularity of urban agriculture further drives the demand for frass fertilizers.

There is a growing demand for sustainable and organic agricultural practices. Frass fertilizers offer a natural and eco-friendly alternative to chemical fertilizers. They are derived from insects, which are rich in essential nutrients, and provide a sustainable source of organic matter for plant growth which is the better alternative for the supply of NPK for which people mostly use chemical fertilizers due to its cheap cost and rapid production in farming. Consumers and farmers who prioritize sustainable farming methods are increasingly turning to frass fertilizers. Frass fertilizers contribute to environmental sustainability. They offer a natural alternative to chemical fertilizers that can have negative impacts on soil health, water quality, and biodiversity. Insect farming requires fewer resources, such as land, water, and energy, compared to traditional livestock farming or chemical fertilizer production. The use of frass fertilizers reduces the carbon footprint and supports sustainable agricultural practices.

The market for organic and specialty crops, such as fruits, vegetables, herbs, and niche products, is expanding rapidly. These crops often require organic fertilizers to meet the specific requirements of organic certification. Frass fertilizers, with their organic and sustainable characteristics, align well with the needs of organic and specialty crop producers, thereby driving the demand for insect-based fertilizers. Frass fertilizers help enhance soil health by improving soil structure, moisture retention, and microbial activity. They provide organic matter that replenishes soil organic carbon, supports beneficial soil organisms, and promotes nutrient cycling. These actions improve soil fertility, water-holding capacity, and overall soil health, leading to sustainable and productive agriculture.

Frass fertilizers are also used in various agricultural settings, including field crops, horticulture, hydroponics, and container gardening. They can be applied as a top dressing, incorporated into the soil, or used as a component of potting mixes. The versatility of frass fertilizers makes them suitable for a wide range of farming systems and cultivation practices. Frass fertilizers are compatible with organic farming practices and can be used in certified organic production systems. They meet the standards and criteria set by organic certification bodies, allowing farmers to utilize them while maintaining organic certification.

The field of frass farming has seen the emergence of several start-up companies that are focused on harnessing the potential of insects for various applications. Agtech startup Ÿnsect, situated in Paris, France, raised $125 million (€110 million) in Series C funding in 2019. The company specializes in raising insects and turning them into premium components for fish feed, pet food, and organic plant fertilizers. Many other start-ups are also emerging around the globe with the increasing demand for insect farming for the production of frass fertilizers. Hence these drivers are collectively contributing to the growth of the frass fertilizer market by addressing environmental concerns, promoting sustainable practices, and offering an alternative to traditional chemical fertilizers in agriculture.

The global frass fertilizer market is segmented into type, form, application, regional distribution, and company.

Based on type, soldier fly is expected to dominate the global frass fertilizer market in the forecast years.  Insect frass, which is abundantly produced as a result of the mass farming of the black soldier fly is used to generate insect-based feed for livestock and fish, includes a significant quantity of organic matter and accessible nutrients. The use of insect frass as an organic fertilizer and soil amendment has shown promising results in farming and production. The suitability of the BSF frass as a biofertilizer and for restoring soil fertility has shown promising results, thus soldier fly is one of the widely reared insect in insect farming for frass fertilizer production.

Based on region, North America, is expected to dominate the global frass fertilizer market, as in North America, countries like the United States and Canada have witnessed an increasing demand for organic products, including organic fertilizers. The organic farming movement and consumer preferences for organic food have driven the market for frass fertilizers in these regions. Additionally, government initiatives and certification programs have supported the growth of organic agriculture and the use of organic inputs. Moreover, many start-up companies are also operating from the region which is also planning to expand their product by exporting frass fertilizer across other continent as many countries are dependent on import of chemical fertilizers.

“The mass rearing of insects for utilizing organic waste to meet the rising demand for animal feed offers a way to manage organic waste that is also being used extensively for increasing soil fertility when used as frass fertilizer for farming. As an organic fertilizer, black soldier fly frass fertilizer (BSFFF) is gaining popularity all over the world. However, nothing is known about the studies on how it affects agricultural output. Long-term use of black soldier fly frass fertilizer is projected to minimize dependency on costly mineral fertilizers that have detrimental impacts on the health of the soil and the ecosystem.

Future research is essential to ascertain the short-, medium-, and long-term impacts of black soldier fly frass fertilizer on soil fertility across various agro-ecological zones and cropping systems. The launch of different insect-based frass fertilizer by the start-up is also boosting the demand and use of fertilizer over chemical fertilizers and the cost-effectiveness of the frass fertilizer is also expected to boost the market of global frass fertilizer market in the upcoming years.,” said Mr. Karan Chechi, Research Director with TechSci Research, a research-based management consulting firm.
