India Seed Market Analysis

The India Seed Market size is estimated at USD 3.61 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 5.01 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 5.61% during the forecast period (2024-2030).

  • Largest Segment by Crop Family - Grains & Cereals : Grains and cereals is the largest segment due to India being the leading producer of grains, rice is a staple food for South India, and wheat is most consumed in North India.
  • Largest Segment by Breeding Technology - Hybrids : There is an increase in the demand for hybrid seeds due to higher productivity, wider adaptability, and a high degree of resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses.
  • Fastest-growing Segment by Crop Family - Roots & Bulbs : India is the leading producer of garlic, onion, and potatoes. The true seeds for garlic and potatoes were introduced leading the segment to be the fastest growing.
  • Fastest-growing Segment by Breeding Technology - Open Pollinated Varieties & Hybrid Derivatives : Open-pollinated varieties require fewer inputs, such as fertilizer and pesticides, and are less expensive than hybrid seeds and more affordable for low-income farmers.

India Seed Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the India Seed Market according to our research experts:

Hybrids is the largest Breeding Technology

  • In India, hybrids dominated over open-pollinated varieties, with a difference of 13.1% in the Indian seed market value in 2021. Farmers are adopting and using more hybrid seeds, considering the pest-resistant properties of these seeds and reducing the losses and cost of production.​
  • The per capita availability of arable land decreased to 0.12 ha in 2018, which is considered a driver for India's seed industry.
  • In 2021, hybrid seed usage increased in the country as an increase in the adoption of transgenic cotton hybrids (62.8%), single-cross corn hybrids (68.6%), soybean (68.4), and hybrid vegetables (75.1%). This increased demand for hybrid seeds has boosted the market for commercial seeds. This trend has encouraged farmers to shift their focus from conventional seed sources to packaged seeds that promise better yields.​
  • In commercial seed cultivation areas in 2021, hybrids alone account for 65% area, whereas OPVs account for 35% area in India.​ Therefore, the seed market is expected to increase as hybrid usage increases in the forecast period.
  • The major breeding techniques in plant breeding include a selection of plants based on natural variants, hybridization, and selection of specific genes or marker profiles using molecular tools. The main objective of these techniques is the selection of better plant types among variants in terms of yield, quality, pest resistance, etc.​
  • The scenario post-adoption of hybrids and improved OPVs has resulted in many advantages, such as yield improvement, ensuring higher prices, and availability of seeds at an affordable price. These factors will drive the growth of the Indian seed market in 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.
