Market Overview

The Asia-Pacific Seed Coating Materials market is estimated to register a CAGR of 8.0%, during the forecast period (2020-2025). Asia-Pacific region is the fastest-growing market, with increasing awareness among the farmers, being the major factor responsible for this growth. The major drivers for this market include increasing adoption of advanced farming technologies and rising awareness regarding the benefits and high performance of coated seeds over the uncoated variants. However, market players in this region are witnessing several challenges in their growth, such as the lack of awareness among most of the farmers of the developing nations, regarding the benefits of coated seeds, and increasing commercialization and acceptance of genetically modified seeds. To overcome these challenges, market players are focusing on their R&D activities to launch natural and organic seed coating materials. Owing to these determinants, the Asia- Pacific seed coating materials market is expected to register an impressive growth rate during the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand for Enhancing Seed Performance

With increasing population growth, the agriculture sector, particularly the seed sector, is under pressure. Increasing demand for food has exerted pressure on farmers, particularly in Asian countries who are progressively shifting to scientific techniques of farming. Farmers need to find a way to yield more with less. According to World Bank statistics, the arable land in this region is anticipated to show a decline of 0.8%, by 2019, over 2016. With this trend of decreasing arable land, meeting the food production demand in the near future might prove difficult. Seed diseases and volatile environment are few major challenges faced by the farmers that decrease crop yields. Coating seeds with pesticides, fertilizers, plant growth regulators, and others can help in accelerating seed performance and germination, and increases the yield per hectare, thereby, boosting the demand for seed coating materials market in the Asia Pacific, with rising awareness among farmers.

Grains and Cereals Segment Dominate the Market

Based on crop type, the Asia-Pacific seed coating material market is segmented into cereals & grains, oilseeds & pulses, other crop types. Cereals and grains segment lead the seed coating material market because the demand for cereals and grains is endlessly increasing as they are considered a vital part of the everyday meal of the rising population. They hold a major share of nearly 40% of the market. Cereals & grains include crops such as wheat, rice, corn, sorghum, oats, and barley. The demand for seed coating materials for cereals and grains is majorly driven by rising pests and disease attacks, increasing demand for feed, rising production demands for corn, and increasing awareness about sustainable agricultural practices. However, the demand for oilseed coating materials is also anticipated to witness growth during the forecast period.
