Key Market Trends

Why is Hybrids the largest segment by Breeding Technology?

  • Hybrids have a higher share in the cotton seed market, accounting for 97.6% of the market value in 2021. The high share of hybrids is due to the high-yielding and pest-resistant properties, which help in reducing the losses and cost of production.​​
  • In cotton, hybrids give a 50% higher yield than normal varieties. Hybrids also show wider adaptability due to their high buffering capacity to environmental fluctuations. Therefore, the demand for hybrids is expected to increase in the country.​
  • In India, out of the total area under cotton hybrids, 95% area was occupied by transgenic hybrids in 2020. The area under transgenic cotton increased from 9.9 million ha in 2016 to 11.9 million ha in  2020. The increasing transgenic area under cultivation is a sign of farmers’ confidence in the Bt cotton technology in India.​ Therefore, the demand for transgenic cotton is expected to increase further during the forecast period.​
  • In 2021, open-pollinated varieties and hybrid derivatives accounted for about 2.4% of the Indian cotton seed market. The open-pollinated varieties market is projected to record a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period. The open-pollinated varieties are mainly cultivated in rainfed conditions due to the low cost of seeds and their ability to withstand water stress.​
  • In India, the adoption of hybrids and improved OPVs resulted in many advantages, such as self-sufficiency and stability in production and foreign exchange earnings. Therefore, these factors may drive the Indian cotton seed market during the forecast period. ​

Market Definition

  • Commercial Seed - For the purpose of this study, only commercial seeds have been included as part of the scope. Farm-saved Seeds, which are not commercially labeled are excluded from scope, even though a minor percentage of farm-saved seeds are exchanged commercially among farmers. The scope also excludes vegetatively reproduced crops and plant parts, which may be commercially sold in the market.
  • Crop Acreage - While calculating the acreage under different crops, the Gross Cropped Area has been considered. Also known as Area Harvested, according to the Food & Agricultural Organization (FAO), this includes the total area cultivated under a particular crop across seasons.
  • Seed Replacement Rate - Seed Replacement Rate is the percentage of area sown out of the total area of crop planted in the season by using certified/quality seeds other than the farm-saved seed.
  • Protected Cultivation - The report defines protected cultivation as the process of growing crops in a controlled environment. This includes greenhouses, glasshouses, hydroponics, aeroponics, or any other cultivation system that protects the crop against any abiotic stress. However, cultivation in an open field using plastic mulch is excluded from this definition and is included under open field.
