Market Insights

The African seed coating market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% over the forecast period. Seed coating enhances seed performance by addition of chemicals to protect the seed from pathogens. It creates products that are both safe for users and the environment. The importance of seed coatings is to ensure proper plantability, enhanced seeding rates and preventing doubles. Seed coating also results in the establishment of uniform plants by creating uniformly sized seed by coating the seeds with several layers of materials.

Market Dynamics

Catering to the demands of farmers for high-quality seed is becoming difficult for manufacturers with rising demand for seeds. This situation has generated an opportunity for seed coating companies. Seed coating materials market in Africa is driven by factors like seed technology development, low-risk investment and increased demand for multifunctional products. Economic growth, industrialization of the seed industry, rising farmer awareness, increasing disposable income and the rising demand for healthy food products are major factors responsible for growth in the region.

While sustainable agricultural practices will lead to higher demand for seed coatings, disposability of coating materials and environmental concerns would create obstacles for market growth.

Market Segmentation

Africa seed coating materials market is segmented on the basis of type, application, and geography. Polymer allows better utilization of insecticides and fungicides for better performance of seeds. It shows the same results as before with improvisation in pest resistance in early stages of crop development. Polymer has the largest market share among coating material type and is projected to grow with the increasing demand for coated seeds in the agriculture industry. The application of coating material is more in cereals and grain seeds accounting for more than 40% of the market share.

Countries like South Africa and Egypt have a major share in the seed coating materials market.
