The seed treatment market is projected to reach USD 8.87 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 10.8%, as studied from 2015.

The market for seed treatment has a significant impact on agricultural production. Seed treatment methods are categorized by function, as crop protection chemicals and seed enhancement, which are further categorized as insecticides, fungicides, inoculants, and physical seed treatments. The seed treatment market is also segmented on the basis of its applications in various crop types, such as corn, wheat, soybean, rice, cotton, canola, and others that include fruits & vegetables, turf, ornamental & forage crop, and other cereals & oilseed crops.

Seed treatment is a term that describes both products and processes. Processes range from hot water treatment to priming. In all cases, the basis of application techniques such as seed coating and pelleting is to deliver the product to the seed at the correct dose and as uniformly as possible from seed-to-seed. Seed treatments can be used as a primary tool to conduct successful integrated pest management program for sustainable agriculture since they target the pests and diseases with smaller amounts of active ingredients per hectare and are not introduced into the atmosphere. In many cases, without the use of seed treatment, growers would have great difficulty in controlling certain early season seed-borne and soil-borne pests and diseases that would have to resort to more expensive and less environment-friendly methods.

The market for seed treatment is estimated to be worth USD 4.82 Billion in 2014. Latin America is the second-largest market in 2015, and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 11.1% during the forecasted period.

The seed treatment market of each region has witnessed the development of many subsidiaries, business units, and research centres of key players. These subsidiaries employ strategies through strong R&D and regional distribution networks with regional players to provide enough competition and capture significant market share. Though, the regulatory requirements played a key role in the entry of a product into the market, the leading players in this market have been developing a range of innovative products to target specific needs without much regulatory issues. Thus, the seed treatment market has been gaining more global presence and acceptance among the customers.

Key participants in the seed treatment market include Syngenta AG (Switzerland), Bayer CropScience AG (Germany), BASF SE (Germany), Nufarm Ltd. (Australia), Sumitomo Chemical Co. Ltd. (Japan), and Platform Specialty Products Ltd. (U.S.). These players have been implementing different strategies such as new product launches and licensing agreements & collaborations to achieve global expansion and development in the seed treatment market.
