Looking to buy the report?

Seed treatment can be defined as the application of chemical ingredients or biological organisms to the seed, which enables suppressing, controlling or repelling plant pathogens, insects, or other pests that attack seeds, seedlings or plants. Seed-applied technologies, such as inoculants, herbicide safeners, micronutrients, plant growth regulators, seed coatings, and colorants, among others, can also be applied to the seed. Treated seeds can be planted and not used for food or feed purposes.

Need for the Biological Seed Treatment

Environmental concerns, regarding the use of chemical seed treatment agents, have been gaining ground.  As a result, since past few years, the market for biological seed treatment agents that are free from these toxic chemicals and provide treatment options on par with or better than chemical agents have been in demand. This trend is likely to sustain over the coming years.

Asia-Pacific is expected to be the Fastest Growing Market

During the past few years, Asia-Pacific has been witnessing a sustained demand for seed treatments. This factor highlights a scope for the region to emerge as the fastest growing global market over the coming half-a-decade. China and India have been the growth engines for the Asia-Pacific market.  As of 2013, these two countries, together, accounted for over 73% of the market demand.  They have been putting emphasis on upgrading their agricultural practices, which is expected to act as a catalyst and propel the demand for seed treatment in Asia-Pacific.
