The Grain Seed Market is Segmented by Technology into Open Pollinated Varieties, Hybrid Derivatives, Non-GMO Hybrids, and Genetically Modified Hybrids, and by Crop Type into Rice, Wheat, Maize (Corn), Sorghum, and Other Crop Types. A Geographical Analysis, Covering the Top 19 Countries in the World is also part of the Report.
Fastest Growing Market:
The grain seed market is projected to register a CAGR of 6.4% during the forecast period (2020-2025). Asia-Pacific is the largest market for cereals and grains seeds and is expected to remain dominant during the forecast period.
The report covers the seeds used for sowing for major cereal crops, including those for minor cereals and millets. The crops covered in the scope of the report includes rice, wheat, maize (corn), and sorghum, which are the four cereal crops grown on the majority of the global arable land. Other cereals included in the scope are minor cereals and millets such as pearl millet, finger millet, etc. The scope of the report excludes seeds used for forage, such as forage maize (corn), forage sorghum, etc. Moreover, other row crops such as pulses, oilseeds, cotton, and sugarcane, among others, are beyond the report scope.
The market has also been segmented based on technology to cover all the major technologies used in the manufacturing of grain seeds, including genetically modified technology.

The demand for food is governed by human population growth, economic growth, livestock population, and animal feed. With the rising population coupled with higher demand for food is creating the need to increase productivity as the urbanization is resulting in decreased cultivable land area. For instance, according to the Food and Agricultural Organization, in 2016, the area under cultivation of cereals was 733.06 million ha, which decreased to 728.09 million ha by 2018, globally. Additionally, the global cereal yield was 41,131 hg/ha in 2017, which decreased to 40,694 hg/ha in 2018. To increase the productivity within the available cultivable area, use of quality seeds has a prominent role in giving better yield.
With the rising concern over the adverse climatic conditions, pest, and disease incidence, various varieties that would show tolerance have been released into the market, which ensures the crop establishment, thus giving a higher yield. For instance, in 2018, Bayer has launched a hybrid rice seed, Arize AZ 8433 DT with strong inbuilt tolerance to Brown Plant Hopper (BPH) and Bacterial Leaf Blight (BLB). BPH is the most destructive pest in rice-growing areas of India, and it has caused considerable losses to farmers in the 2017 Kharif season.

Asia-Pacific is the largest market for grain seeds, accounting for more than 30% of the global demand. The growing population in Asian countries, mainly in China and India, has a continuously increasing demand for food production and is driving the seed market for cereal and grains in the region. The highest increases in seed replacement rates and hybridization have been observed in countries in the Asia-Pacific, and the number of farmers utilizing high-quality seeds has increased. Asia-Pacific is expected to retain its position as the largest market over the forecast period.

The grain seed market is consolidated with the top five companies occupying almost 50% of the market share. The merger of Dow Agrosciences and DuPont and the subsequent formation of Corteva Agriscience as the company engaged in the merged entity's agricultural business and the acquisition of Monsanto Company by Bayer CropScience has further consolidated the industry. Other major regional players occupy smaller shares, and there is also a massive presence of smaller seed companies holding major local markets in countries, such as India and China.
