Seed Market by Type (Cereals & Grains, Oilseeds, and Fruit & Vegetables), Seed Trait (Herbicide Tolerant, Insect Resistant, and Other Stacked Traits) & Region - Global Trends & Forecast to 2020

The global seeds market has been projected to reach a value of $92.04 billion by 2020, driven primarily by the increasing demand for food in tandem with the growing global population, declining arable land, technology driven agricultural farming, and extensive use of biotechnology in seed development. Intensive research and development efforts by seed companies have brought about evolved strains of seeds that displaying resistance to diseases and pests, and which are able to deliver enhanced yields with minimized use of other agri-inputs such as fertilizers and crop protection chemicals.

Growth of the global seed market is primarily driven by the use of seeds with traits for cultivation and increasing awareness among the farmers about the seeds with traits due to its adopt-ability and high returns. Oilseed and grain seeds are key segments of the global seed market. The seed market is further classified as seed with various biotech traits which include herbicide resistance, READ MORE >

The production of commercial seeds, their availability, and supply continue to play a major role in achieving the food security across the globe. Therefore, the global seed industry has transformed dramatically over the past century as farmers across the world began to purchase seeds to grow the crops (instead of using seeds saved from the previous season) and entry of large enterprises into the business of commercial seed production and marketing. Research and development activities from seed companies has provided new technologies in order to increase the efficiency of crop production through the improved seeds or planting materials to meet the fast growing demand for food, feed, and energy (fuel). During the last decade, advances in genetic engineering has resulted in revolutionary changes in the development of more efficient seeds or planting materials with desired traits in it. Seeds have become a fundamental input in agriculture crop production and leading the industry to achieve its transformation in line with the changing demand from the growers as well as to suit the changing weather patterns.

The global seed market, in terms of value, is projected to reach $92.04 Billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 9.4% from 2015 to 2020.

Some of the major drivers of the seed industry identified in this report are increasing global population, declining arable land, diversified use of agricultural crop produce, developments in science and technology, increasing use of genetically modified crops, and increasing Seed Replacement Rates (SRR). The growth of the seed market is also triggered by the use of seeds with traits for crop cultivation as these aid farmers in achieving high productivity and profit.

Oilseed and grain seeds are key segments of the global market. Major restraints identified in this report include regulations in the European Union regarding the cultivation and consumption of GM crops and crop produce. There are some opportunities which can change the dynamics of the seed industry. One of them is diversified demand and specialized cultivation of food crop. The rising demand for vegetables, oils, fibre, and grains has a positive impact on the growth of seed market.

The global seed market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.4% between 2015 and 2020. The market was dominated by North America, which has accounted for around 32.60% of the total share, in 2014. The Asia-Pacific region is projected to be the fastest growing market owing to high population which demands for the increased food products and technology driven farming activities by farmers to achieve higher productivity and profits.

India is projected to be the fastest growing market for seed, followed by China due to government initiatives in promoting technology driven agriculture practices. The cereals & grains segment is projected to be the biggest market for seed, globally, from 2015 to 2020. Study findings reveal that, the acreage under the cereals and grains have declined significantly in the last few decades due to diversification crops area towards the high profit crops such as soybean and cotton. The oilseeds segment is projected to grow significantly, at a CAGR of 9.5% from 2015 to 2020.

The global market is marked with intense competition due to the presence of a large number of both, big and small firms.
