Global Maize Seed Market - Segmented by Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2019 - 2024)

Purchase Report

The global maize seed market is expected to record a robust CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period 2018-2023. The analysis indicates that new product launches and product development are the most adopted strategies by major players in the industry. For instance, Syngenta introduced 10 new NK corn hybrids in the United Kingdom during 2017. Similarly, Advanta Seeds added new Phoenix corn hybrids in the United States in 2015. DuPont Pioneer also released 57 new corn hybrids for the 2017 planting season. To inflate market share and acquire new technology, especially IPRs, companies show their interest in acquisition in this industry. The mega merger between Bayer and Monsanto has changed the industry dynamics and such mergers are likely to result in a more consolidated market.

Expansion of Poultry & Animal Feed Sector

The growing meat industry is creating a demand for more cereals, especially maize and soybean, as both are highly nutritive in terms of protein. Corn is also the primary feed grain in the United States, accounting for more than 95% of the total feed grain production and use. More than 90 million acres of crop are grown for maize production, primarily used for livestock and feed purpose. While the number of field farms for corn has declined in recent years, the acreage per corn farm has increased.

Africa is the Region Experiencing Fastest Growth

Maize is one of the most important and widely grown crops in South Africa. North America is the largest market for agricultural testing. Currently, 70-80% of all the maize consumed in South Africa is genetically modified, and it is the only country in the world whose staple is primarily GMO.


Major Players: Syngenta International, Bayer Cropscience, DowDuPont, Advanta Seeds, and Monsanto Company, among others.
