“Global Seed Treatment Market to Reach $13,587.0 Million by 2027.”
The seed treatment market was valued at $7,924.6 million in 2021, which is expected to grow with a CAGR of 9.43% and reach $13,587.0 million by 2027. The growth in the global seed treatment market is expected to be driven by increasing seed and soil-borne diseases and the growing demand for treated seeds.
The seed treatment market is in the development phase. Increased research and development activities are underway to develop treated seeds, biological seed treatment products, and seed pelleting techniques, which are expected to increase the demand for seed treatment in farming practices.
Increasing investments in the R&D of seed treatment is one of the major opportunities in the global seed treatment market. Moreover, the functions of seed treatment such as seed protection, seedling protection, and seed germination are attracting seed manufacturers, farmers, and animal feed producers.
COVID-19 pandemic directly impacted on manufacturing and transportation activities of the seed treatment market. Due to the pandemic, the supply chain of the seed treatment market was disturbed at the global level. Various governments closed their international trades and production units, due to these seed treatment markets being hampered more at the global level. In mid of 2021, manufacturing and transportation activities of the seed treatment started gradually, and international trades started efficiently. Therefore, the production and consumption of seed treatment products are expected to increase post-COVID-19 pandemic.
The global seed treatment market in the application technique segment is expected to be dominated by the seed coating application technique. All treated seeds are mass-produced and are used seed treatment products for seed coating application techniques commonly in developing counties.
The global seed treatment market in the crop type is expected to be dominated by cereals and grains crop type. The cereals and grains include rice, wheat, corn, sorghum, and barely. The growing demand of cereals & grains, and the rise in awareness of treated cereals & grains seeds further drive the seed treatment market in near future.
The global seed treatment market is dominated by the chemical seed treatment segment. Chemical seed treatment includes insecticide, fungicide, nematicide, fertilizer, plant growth nutrients, or a combination of crop protection chemicals. The growing demand for high-value insecticide and fungicide seed treatment products are driving the chemical seed treatment market globally.
The global seed treatment market is dominated by the liquid solution segment. Due to the ease of use and high effectiveness of seed treatment products, liquid solution seed treatment products are booming in the market. The increasing acceptance of biological seed treatment products and organic farming practices are driving the growth of the liquid solution formulation.
The seed treatment market differentiates depending on its functionality. Based on functionality, the seed treatment market is segmented into two major types, including seed protection and seed enhancement. Seed protection is a primarily important function because it enables the plant to imbibe certain beneficial properties prior to germination.
North America generated the highest revenue of $2.41 billion in 2021, which is attributed to the R&D advancements and supporting government regulations in the North America region. North America is an attractive region for the biological seed treatment market because of the increasing demand for organic food and precision farming.
Following are the demand drivers for the seed treatment market:
The market is expected to face some limitations too due to the following challenges:
Product/Innovation Strategy: The product segment helps the reader understand the different types of seed treatment available for deployment in the various crop types including wheat, maize, soybean, canola, cotton, rice, sorghum, solanaceae, leafy vegetables, cucurbits, brassicas, root & bulb vegetables and forage crops globally.
Moreover, the study provides the reader with a detailed understanding of the different seed treatments by application techniques (seed coating, seed pelleting, and seed dressing), by Product type (chemical seed treatment and non-chemical seed treatment), by formulation (liquid solution, powder, emulsion, flowable concentrate, water dispersible powder for slurry, others), and by function (seed protection and seed enhancement). Seed treatment finished products generate higher revenues when compared to the operational and raw material costs. Therefore, the seed treatment business is a high revenue-generating business.
Growth/Marketing Strategy: The global seed treatment market has seen major development by key players operating in the market, such as product launches, business expansion, partnerships, collaboration, and joint ventures. The favored strategy for the companies has been new product launches, joint ventures, and partnerships to strengthen their position in the seed treatment market. For instance, in March 2022, Syngenta launched CruiserMaxx APX soybean seed treatment solution. This product is registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Due to this approval, the company will increase its market share in the global seed treatment market.
Competitive Strategy: Key players in the global seed treatment market analyzed and profiled in the study. Moreover, a detailed competitive benchmarking of the players operating in the global seed treatment market has been done to help the reader understand how players stack against each other, presenting a clear market landscape.
