Key Market Trends

Increase in Cost of High-Quality Seeds driving the Market

High costs associated with hybrids and genetically modified seeds is a major factor driving the growth of the seed treatment market, globally. Seed treatment is being increasingly considered by farmers as a mode to protect investments made on good quality seeds, due to an increase in regulatory issues relating to fumigation, as well as the foliar application of pesticides. Cost of seeds is expected to increase, owing to a increase in the demand for high-quality seeds, with desirable agronomic traits. Both companies and farmers are ready to spend on seed treatment solutions, in order to save high-quality seeds. According to USDA estimates of 2017, corn seeds cost about 300% since 1995, while the yield grew by only 35%. Framers are trying to cut down operating costs by selecting seeds that do not require multiple doses of chemicals. The initial protection of these engineered seeds is ensured by using seed treatments products.
