Market Overview

The seeds market is projected to register a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period 2020-2025. In 2019, North America was the largest geographical segment of the market studied and accounted for a share of around 35% of the market. The growing demand for grains, oils, and vegetables is a significant driver for the seeds market. The global population reached over 7.6 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach 9.9 billion by 2050. As a result, the global demand for food is likely to increase by 70%, due to rapid population growth, urbanization, and changing diets.

Grains represent the biggest portion of daily calorie intake in developing countries of the Middle East & Africa, Asia/Oceania, and CIS, and therefore, the demand for grains is going to be one of the most critical drivers of the market studied.

Scope of the Report

A seed is the ripened fertilized ovule of a flowering plant containing an embryo and capable normally of germination to produce a new plant. For the purpose of this report, seeds have been defined as the seeds for sowing at farmer level. In this report market sizing has been at the farmer level.

The report provides an in-depth analysis of various parameters of the seeds market. The market has been segmented based on the type of product, crop, and also based on geography. Also, relevant sub-segmentations have been discussed in the report.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Adoption of Transgenic Seeds

Across major agricultural countries such as the United States, China, India and Brazil, farmers are increasingly adopting transgenic seeds for both yield benefits and other non-yield traits. For instance, 92% of the area under cotton in India was sown with transgenic cotton with insect tolerance trait. Companies are also increasingly developing transgenic hybrids across crops. Breeding Technologies have also been developed specific to the needs of the development of such hybrids. Some of the technologies include Advanced Marker-Assisted Breeding and Computational Breeding. 

Regulatory approval remains a key challenge for the development of transgenic seeds. Some of the countries in the European Union such as France, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Greece, and Luxembourg, among others have banned the development and cultivation of transgenic hybrids. However, with the largest regions such as North America, Asia-Pacific and South America supporting the cultivation of transgenic hybrids, the Transgenic Hybrid segment of the Global Seed Market is projected to witness robust growth over the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific is the Fastest Growing Region

Asia-Pacific, dominated by the two major agricultural countries, India and China, is the fastest growing geographical segment in the Global Seed Market. The region is witnessing increased adoption of hybrids and increasing seed replacement rates in key crops such as Rice, Maize and Vegetables. Growth prospects remain high for hybrid rice in the region. For instance, the area sown under hybrid rice in India stood at 3.1 million hectare in 2018, which is 7% of the total rice area in the country. Increasing demand for animal feed has been the major driver for the growth of the maize segment of the market in the region. Also, increased area under cultivation of vegetables on account of the changing dietary preferences of the population, as well as the increased cash flows received by farmers on account of vegetable cultivation, are driving the vegetable seed segment of the seed market in the region.
