Japan Seed Treatment Market
Seed treatment can be defined as the application of chemical ingredients or biological organisms to the seed that enables in suppressing, controlling or repelling plant pathogens, insects, or other pests that attack seeds, seedlings or plants. The Japan seed treatment market was worth around $34.8 million in 2015 and is expected to cross $49.8 million by 2020 growing at the CAGR of 8.3% during the forecast period 2015-2020.
The growth in seed treatment industry is largely fuelled by increasing farm sizes and rising concerns over its quality and safety due to harmful effects of chemicals to environment. Thus, some major drivers of the seed treatment industry are rise in the seed costs, crop rotations getting shorter and greater use of multi-component products. The poor farmers in Japan are adopting organic techniques which have a lower environment impact which is driving the market.
Major restraints identified in this report are regulatory structure intervention regarding entry, concerns for the environment and regulation of seed treatment market. Major opportunities are fastest growth rate for biological agents and Japan has a fastest growth rate in seed treatment market.
Japan market holds 10% of the Asia-Pacific market revenue by 2020. The Japan market is expected to have a high CAGR of 7.4% due to increasing demand for high yield crop products in the region and rising organic crop production, especially in China, India, Malaysia, Japan and Singapore.
By application segment, Japan's utilization of seed treatment chemical agents is forecast to exhibit the fastest 2015-2020 CAGR of 7.3%, thereby reaching a projected US$45.8 million by 2020 from an estimated US$32.2 million in 2015. However, growth in demand for non-chemical agents is likely to outpace chemical agents by posting a 2015-2020 compounded annual rate of 8.3% to emerge as the fastest segment.
Similar to rice, soybeans have constituted a staple of Japanese food culture since ancient times. Typically, the demand from the Japanese soy industry is for a product of superior quality that has high content of protein and sucrose. Japanese manufactures utilize a variety of different soy species that are intended for multiple end uses. Tofu (soybean curd), is the most common end use for soy in Japan, accounting for 58 percent of total food soybean use. Rice is the leading type of crop for seed treatment applications in Japan, estimated to account for 36.3% of the total demand in 2015. In terms of CAGR between 2015 and 2020, however, demand for seed treatment applications in canola is expected to be the fastest crop among all crop types at 8%, Asia remains the hub of rice production, with many countries in the region growing more than one crop per season.
