Market Insights

The Italy forage seed market estimated at USD XX billion in 2016 is expected to reach USD XX billion by 2022 at a CAGR of XX% over the forecasted period. Italy is the largest market for alfalfa seed production in Europe, followed by Spain and France. In terms of area production, around 34% of alfalfa surfaces of Europe are in Italy. It is the leader in the Egyptian clover seed production. The total import from the US of forage seeds was valued at USD 15.7 million in the year 2014, majorly consisting of legumes such as ryegrass, sand grass, and tall fescue.

Forage seeds are utilized by the forage farmer, dairy farmer and miller for the high yield of their crops in the farm.  Livestock farmers contribute a major share in the forage seed usage due to its requirement as feed for grazing animals.

Market Dynamics

The major drivers for the market are increased demand for organic food and feed products, consumer demand for livestock products, rise in high yielding cattle or breed cattle demand for feed, growth in population and the shrinkage of land for grazing animals. However, the European seed association law, which regulates the forage seed market, high investment for the forage seed production, unpredictability of seed cycle, soil condition, climate change, and the time incentive returns are restraining the market. Increased demand for high-potential and organically produced seeds are creating new opportunities. Although the quality potential of the forage seed is quite high, there is unwillingness amongst the farmers to buy the high-cost seed for the feed.

Market Segmentation

By crop type, the market is segmented into legumes, cereals, and grasses. By product type, the market is segmented into stored forage and fresh forage. The stored forage is segmented into silage and hay. Further, the market has been segmented by animal type into cross breed cattle, indigenous cattle and buffalos. The poultry livestock utilizes high-quality forage seeds and covers a major market share, followed by cattle and pork.
