Market Insights

The South America seed coating market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.8% over the forecast period. The market value for the year 2016 was reported to be USD 102.4 million. Seed coating enhances seed performance by addition of chemicals to protect the seed from pathogens. It creates products that are both safer for users and the environment. 

Market Dynamics

Catering to the demands of farmers for high-quality seed is becoming difficult for manufacturers with rising demand for seeds. This situation has generated an opportunity for seed coating companies. The benefits of seed coating like low seeding rate and less seedling damage are leading to more manufacture of coated seeds as it is one of the simplest, safest, and most effective ways to treat any seed. Seed coating materials market in South America is driven by factors like seed technology development and low-risk investment. While sustainable agricultural practices will lead to higher demand for seed coatings, disposability of coating materials and environmental concerns would create obstacles for market growth.

Market Segmentation

The South American seed coating materials market is segmented on the basis of type, application, and geography. Polymer has the largest market share among coating material type and is projected to grow with the increasing demand for coated seeds in the agriculture industry. Colorant is another important material accounting for around one-fourth of all the seed coatings materials used. The application of coating material is more in cereals and grain seeds accounting for more than 40% of the market share.

Economic growth, industrialization of the seed industry, rising farmers’ awareness are major factors responsible for growth in the region. The regional market demand is led by major agricultural bases like Brazil and Argentina; with Brazil set at a CAGR of 8.3%.
