Market Overview

The Global Seed Coating Material Market is projected to register a CAGR of 10.9% during the forecast period (2020-2025). Artificial coating of seeds helps in improving handling, the delivery of protectants, symbiotic microorganisms, soil adjuvants, germination promoters, growth regulators, and colors. With increasing investments in agriculture, the use of modern technologies and the awareness among the farmers about the use of genetically modified seeds and hybrid seeds are increasing. These are some of the significant factors that are anticipated to drive the market. However, stringent regulations with respect to the seed coating act as a restraint to the market.

Scope of the Report

Seed coating is a process through which seeds are coated with the crop protection chemicals, such as insecticides, fungicides, and insecticides, and some other non-chemical/biological products, which protect the seeds from pest attacks. Binders, seed planting lubricants, seed applied fertilizers, and adjuvants are the major ingredients used in seed coating process apart from active ingredients/chemicals.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand For Enhancing Seed Performance

The global per capita land and arable land area are witnessing a falling trend over the years, leading to a huge gap in demand and supply. To reduce the demand and the supply gap in agricultural products, the yield of the crops should be increased. Seed diseases and volatile environment are few major challenges faced by the farmers that decrease the crop yield. Therefore, this boosts the demand for seed coatings as coating the seed with pesticides, fertilizers, plant growth regulators, and others, help in accelerating seed performance and germination. Global hectarage of biotech crops increased from 185.1 million hectares in 2016 to 189.8 million hectares by 2017. In 2017, the list was led by the USA which grew 75 million hectares (40% of global total, higher by 1% in 2016), Brazil with 50.2 million hectares (26%), Argentina with 23.6 million hectares (12%), Canada with 13.1 million hectares (7%), India with 11.4 million hectares (6%). High adoption rates reflect farmer satisfaction with the products that offer substantial benefits ranging from more convenient and flexible crop management, lower cost of production

North America Dominates the Market

The North American market demand is led by countries, such as the United States, Canada and Mexico. The United States is the largest market for seed coatings in North America, due to supportive regulations like the compulsory colouring of treated seeds coupled with growing demand for yield. Increasing farm size and decreasing crop rotation coupled with the rising awareness on bio products are the major factors which are driving the demand for the seed coating materials in the country. Corn is one of the major crops grown in the United States of America and a large amount of seeds used in the country are treated with seed coating and this percentage is growing. While most coatings include chemicals like copper compounds and antibiotics, new biologically-based coatings are increasing in importance. Biological coatings are becoming more selective, which preserves the soil microbiome, and are compatible with organic practices. Hence all these forementioned factors are anticiapted to bolster the market growth during the forecast period.
