Global Seed Treatment Market - Industry Analysis and Forecasts 2016-2021

Report Code: FB-R-17-32 | Page Numbers: 192

The global market is poised for growth owing to the growing research & development initiatives to improve the seeds potential of genetic yielding. Seed treatment involves the application of biological, physical, and chemical agents during planting to improve the health of crops. It helps to control soil and seed-borne infections, diseases and also increases the crop yield leading to enhanced productivity. Seed treatments can be an environmentally more friendly way of using pesticides as the amounts used can be very small. Biological seed treatment agents are antagonistic fungi or bacteria used for protecting seeds.
The major driver of the market is the increasing global population which in turn led to increase in food requirements. Other factors like Rise in cost of fertilizers & pesticides, increase in farm sizes, increase in rates of crop rotation and increased awareness among farmers about the benefits of using agro products are also driving the market for seed treatment. Increasing R&D costs related to improving crop quality is expected to increase the growth of the market. Major Restraints of the market are increased concerns over environment, Limited Duration of Protection.

Increasing R&D costs related to improving crop quality is expected to increase the growth of the market. Major Restraints of the market are increased concerns over environment, Limited Duration of Protection.
The global market for seed treatment comprises chemical agents, including insecticides, fungicides and other chemicals and non-chemical agents, of which chemical agents form the most dominant application segment. Among non-chemical seed treatment, Biological seed treatment agents include applications that are derived from renewable resources and contain natural active ingredients. These seed treatment agents have no adverse impact on the environment, workers and consumers in comparison to chemical agents, as a consequence of it demand for them to witness the fastest growth during forecast period.
Worldwide, chemical agents dominate the market for seed treatments, cornering an estimated share of 93.8% in 2015, with demand for the same projected to reach US$7.58 billion by 2021 at a CAGR of 8.9% between 2016 and 2021. Within this application category, insecticides constitute the largest sub-category, with an estimated 2015 share of 50.5% of overall seed treatment demand. However, fungicide seed treatments are slated to witness the fastest CAGR of 9.5% during 2016-2021 in reaching a projected demand of US$2.63 billion by 2021. The global market for non-chemical seed treatment agents is slated to outpace chemical agents by posting a robust CAGR of 10% over the similar period to reach a projected US$508.2 million by 2021.
By region, North America dominates the global seed treatment market, with a share estimated to be 48.2% in 2015, though Asia-Pacific?s demand for these compounds is likely to emerge as the fastest growing with a compounded annual rate of 10.6% during 2016-2021.
Corn/maize is the most widely crop seed to be treated with these compounds, accounting for an estimated share of 31% in 2015. In terms of growth, however, the market for seed treatment for soybeans is likely to be the fastest in compounding annually at 9.5% between 2016 and 2021.
Syngenta, Bayer CropScience and BASF are the top three players in the global seed treatment market, with all of them having an extensive portfolio of agricultural products and solutions. While BioWorks Inc, Advanced Biological Marketing Inc and Valent USA Corp are comparatively smaller players, they offer the potential of becoming big game changers in the area of seed treatment in future. Each company has adopted an individual approach in terms of strategy for future growth. A few have focused on horizontal growth by expanding their presence in emerging markets that offer greatest scope for future prospects, while yet others have been content to operate within their established boundaries and go in for vertical growth by concentrating on innovations in the area of products and solutions.
