Key Market Trends

Declining Area Under Cultivation is Encouraging Hybrid Seed Adoption

The increasing awareness regarding the high nutritional value of vegetables has increased the consumption of vegetables, including tomatoes, in order to meet diverse dietary and nutritional needs. The aforementioned factor has caused a rise in the demand for tomatoes, which in turn, automatically drives the demand for tomato seed. The factors such as decreasing acreage have resulted in the adoption of hybrid seeds. For instance, the global area under tomato cultivation has declined from 5,013.37 thousand hectares to 4,762.46 thousand hectares between 2016-2018. Declining acreage coupled with climate changes, resistance developed by pests, poor infrastructure, and post-harvest loss, there is a need for new high-yielding and hybrid seeds to help the farmers increase the yield. 

Rising awareness among farmers about the benefits associated with the adoption of hybrids, especially in the emerging economies, such as India and Brazil, through government support, is accelerating the market. The biotech area is also growing around the world, which leads to an increase in the demand for hybrid tomato seeds.
