A recent report published by Infinium Global Research on seed market provides in-depth analysis of segments and sub-segments in global as well as regional seed market. The study also highlights the impact of drivers, restraints, and macro indicators on the global and regional seed market over the short term as well as long term. The report is a comprehensive presentation of trends, forecast and dollar values of the global seed market. According to the report, the global seed market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.2% over the forecast period of 2018-2024.
Seed is defined as matured ovule consisting until conditions are suitable for the embryo to begin growing. Seeds are a protective structure that lets a plant embryo survive for long periods of time before it germinates. Good seed is a basic necessity for agricultural production of crops as the quality of the seed is one of the factors determining the achievement of the harvest and the quality of the product. Seed propagation increases genetic variation forming hybrids with superior qualities. Timely availability of quality seeds in adequate quantity decides the health and strength of an agricultural economy. High-quality seeds such as hybrid seeds offer better yield, significant uniformity, enhanced color, and disease resistance to the resulting plants.
Biotech crops are considered to be the fastest adopted crop technology in the history of modern agriculture. Thus, the requirement to increase the food production and increasing acceptance of area under cultivation of Genetically Modified (GM) crops drive the growth of the seed market. Genetically modified (GM) crops have many potential advantages in terms of raising agricultural productivity and reducing the need for environmentally harmful pesticides. Genetically Modified crops can be engineered to last longer once harvest which makes it possible to extend the distribution life of the food product. That makes it possible to use the existing infrastructure for food distribution to send healthy foods further around the world. Moreover, awareness among the farmers is increasing along with the hybrid seeds that should be disease resistant. These factors are boosting the growth of the seed market. In addition, diversification of diets and increasing use of waste land for agriculture is further strengthening the growth of the seed market. However, low awareness of genetically engineered crops is likely to curtail the growth of the seed market. Furthermore, the introduction of new technologies along with the potential benefits over the conventional seeds are anticipated to create several growth opportunities for the key players in the seed market. On the other hand, the high growth potential in emerging markets and untapped regions provide new growth opportunities for the market players. Adoption of commercial farming and increasing awareness about scientific and good agricultural farming practices can create lucrative opportunities for the market.
Among the geographies, North America dominated the global seed market. Asia Pacific region is the second biggest seed market in the world, followed by North America. The growth in the North American region is due to dominated market share in the United States and Canada due to the adoption of GMO seeds and hybridization of seeds. Moreover, Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest growing region. An outstanding growth is observed in this region for the seed market over the past few years due to the support from governments as well as national and international associations to increase the agricultural production of oil, grains, fruits, and vegetables to meet the need for food products.
In the case of fruits and vegetables, India ranks at number 16 in the global fruits and vegetable seed exports. Rising awareness among the farmers related to the benefits of using certified quality seeds has led to an increase in the demand for seeds over the past few years in Asia Pacific region. Moreover, several factors, including increased subsidies and improved government thrust on the use of high yielding varieties will lead to an increased productivity in the seed market. Today, over 90% of Cotton grown in India is cultivated by using Cotton seeds. Now with more countries opening up for genetic modification cultivation, there exists huge potential to export Cotton seeds from India.
