Japan Seed Treatment Market Analysis

The Japanese seed treatment market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period (2020-2025). Seed treatment is the application of chemical ingredients or biological organisms to the seed to ensure seed protection by suppressing, controlling, or repelling plant pathogens, insects, or other pests that attack seeds, seedlings, or plants. It also enables seed enhancement by improving their performance post-harvesting and conditioning them before they are sown. 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. The factors driving the global seed treatment market include: rise in the cost of high-quality seeds, such as GM and hybrid, an increase of limitations associated with soil and foliar application of crop protection products, increasing need for efficient post-harvest seed storage, high disease pressure and need for increased agricultural productivity and improving seed technology. While the rapid growth is expected to be witnessed in the coming years, a few factors, such as the increasing role of chemicals in affecting the environment adversely, limited dose capacity, protection and shelf life of treated seeds, phytotoxicity associated with the use of seed treatment chemicals and lack of awareness among the farmers, are hindering the market growth.

Japan Seed Treatment Market Trends

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

Rise in Cost of High Quality Seeds

The changing agro-climatic conditions threaten crop productivity. Sustaining agricultural productivity is a major concern in Japan, and the solution is often costly using high-yielding quality seeds. The high costs associated with hybrids and Genetically Modified (GM) seeds are a major factor driving the growth of the seed treatment market, globally. With higher regulatory issues relating to fumigation and foliar application of pesticides in place, seed treatment is being increasingly considered by farmers as a mode to protect high investments made on good quality seeds. Owing to the increasing demand, for high-quality seeds, seed costs are also increasing with desirable agronomic traits. Both companies and farmers of the region are ready to spend extra for seed treatment solutions to save costlier high-quality seeds.
