Seed Treatment Market by Type (Chemical & Non-Chemical), by Application (Fungicide, Insecticide, Bio-Control, and Others) and by Crop (Cereals, Oilseeds, and Others) - Global Trends, Forecasts and Technical Insights up to 2019

The global seed treatment market consists of crop protection chemicals or agrochemicals (specifically for seeds), and genetically modified (GM) crop seeds. Crop protection chemicals form the most dominant segment of this market in terms of market share as well as product innovations. . Seed treatments are further classified as insecticides (chemical), fungicides (chemical), bio-control seed treatments, and other seed treatment chemicals.

Seed treatments are segmented further as chemical and non-chemical seed treatments. Bio-based seed treatments are part of non-chemical seed treatment applications that are made up of renewable resources and contain natural active ingredients. These seed treatments have a much less negative impact on the environment, workers, and consumer safety when compared to chemical seed treatments and these are projected to be one of the fastest-growing seed treatment segments in the near future.

This report provides a comprehensive outlook on the global seed treatment market with respect to various regions, product types, and applications.

In terms of value, the market is estimated to be worth $2,798.0 million in 2014 and is projected to reach $4,635.4 million by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 10.6% from 2014 to 2019. Growth in terms of value is estimated to be higher than that in terms of volume, owing to the increasing cost of agrochemicals. Development and registration of a pesticide active ingredient is one of the biggest components of cost for seed treatment manufacturers.

North America and Latin America were the leading consumers of seed treatments, collectively accounting for over 75.2% of the market until 2013. Constant regulatory push towards restricting the use of agrochemicals and increasing consumer awareness regarding the consequences of agrochemicals residues in food have resulted in a significant increase in demand for seed treatments in other regions as well.

Asia-Pacific, which has witnessed a steady demand for these seed treatments in the recent years, is now one of the growing markets for seed treatment. Increasing modernization of agriculture in India and China is projected to drive the Asia-Pacific market in the near future.

Among all seed treatment applications, seed treatment insecticides (chemical) form the largest segment and are estimated to account for over 50.0%share of the global seed treatment market in 2013. Seed treatment fungicides (chemical) are estimated to form the second-largest segment of the global seed treatment market with 34.2% share in 2013.

In terms of competition, the market is dominated by innovators, which are essentially companies with patented products in the market. Key innovators include Bayer CropScience AG (Germany), Syngenta AG (Switzerland), BASF SE (Germany) and Nufarm Company (Australia). Also, there are companies that focus on bio-control seed treatment products, which are products with natural active ingredient. Key participants in the bio-control segment include Plant Health Care Inc. (U.S.) and Becker Underwood (U.S.).
