The Africa Seeds Market is expected to reach USD XX million by 2020 from USD XX million in 2015, registering a CAGR of XX% during the forecasted period from 2015 to 2020. Africa is a minor player in the global seed trade and approximately 80% of the farmers in the region save seeds for replantation.

Seed is one of the most basic and important agricultural inputs and it forms the third largest inputs market after agrochemicals and farm machineries, globally. Traditionally, the seed industry was the major contributor for the sustainable food production. However, nowadays with the advancement of technology, the industry is also contributing towards animal feed, bio-energy and bio-materials production. In African agriculture, seeds play important role in food sustainability only.

The major factors driving the industry includes population growth, urbanization, income growth and high output prices. Africa has potential for growth of this industry as high yielding and hybrid crops can increase the productivity and income of the region. However, the constraints holding back the growth of the industry include high market fragmentation, inconsistent policies, high cost of new variety registration, inadequate infrastructure to support the industry development and lesser seed demand.

In this report, the market has been broadly segmented into non-GM/hybrid seeds, GM seeds and varietal seeds. GM seeds are further divided by trait type into herbicide tolerant seeds, insect resistant seeds, abiotic stress resistance seeds and other seeds with stacked traits. By crop type, the industry is again segmented into grains and cereals (maize, rice, wheat, and sorghum), oil seeds (soybean, sunflower, cotton, canola and rapeseed), vegetables (solanaceae, cucurbit, root and bulbs, brassica and others) and other seeds. Cowpea seeds form the largest seed market segment, as Africa accounts for 95% of the global cowpea production. Other than cowpea, maize, fruits and vegetables are the biggest seed market segments in Africa.

A good number of private companies have flourished in the region after the 2002 governmental liberalization of the seed sector in the country.
