The global cotton seed treatment market was valued at USD 286.4 million in 2017, and it is expected to witness a CAGR of 10.9% during the forecast period 2018-2023. North America is the largest market for cotton seed treatment products, while Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period.
Thrips are the largest threat to cotton cultivation, which leads to huge amount of crop losses. Severe thrips infestations can cause stunting, maturity delays, and yield losses. Because the severity of thrips cannot be predicted, insecticide seed treatments and foliar insecticide applications are mostly used to reduce the risk of their damage.
Albaugh LLC came up with another biological product, BIO ST, which acts as fungicide, insecticide, as well as nematicide, and provides protection against early season thrips, aphids, and seedling diseases. Indigo Agriculture, a relatively new company in the seed treatment market, has introduced a new microbe-based seed treatment, which provides resistance against diseases, as well as against water scarcity stress. The new product is also expected to increase the yield of cotton. These trends are likely to enhance the market size and also drive growth in the market.
Recently, PhytoGen Trio seed treatment was introduced in the United States, which provides protection against early season diseases, insects, and nematodes, and at the same time helps in increasing the yield of cotton. Syngenta and Bayer came up with various new products for cotton seed treatment between 2016 and 2018. Bayer also introduced COPeO Prime seed treatment, which offers protection against nematodes, while Syngenta received the EPA registration for Fortenza insecticide seed treatment, which offers an increased protection against insects. Technological advancements ensure that the products are better suited to needs, and hence, are more efficient in nature, thereby instilling growth.
