The African Seed coating market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period 2016-2021. Seed coating is enhancing seed performance by addition of chemicals to protect the seed from pathogens. It creates products that are both safer for users and the environment. Importance of seed coatings is to ensure proper plantability, enhanced seeding rates and prevent doubles. Seed coating also results in establishment of uniform plant by creating uniform sized seed by coating the seeds with several layers of materials.

Rise in demand for seeds has exerted pressure on farmers, especially in Asian countries who are gradually shifting to scientific method of farming. Catering the demands of farmers for high quality seed is becoming difficult for manufacturers with rising demand for seeds. This situation has generated an opportunity for seed coating companies. The benefits of seed coating like low seeding rate and less seedling damage are leading to more manufacture of coated seeds it is one of the simplest, safest, and most effective ways to treat any seed. Seed coating materials market in Africa is driven by factors like seed technology development, low risk investment and increased demand for multifunctional products. While sustainable agricultural practices will lead to higher demand of seed coatings, disposability of coating materials and environmental concerns would create obstacle for market growth.

Africa seed coating materials market is segmented on the basis of type, application and geography. Polymer allows better utilization of insecticides and fungicides for better performance of seeds. It shows the same results as before with improvisation in pest resistance in early stages of crop development. Polymer has the largest market share among coating material type and is projected to grow with the increasing demand for coated seeds in the agriculture industry. The application of coating material is more in cereals and grain seeds accounting for more than 40% of the market share.

Economic growth, industrialization of seed industry, rising farmers awareness are major factors responsible for growth in the region. Countries like South Africa and Egypt have a major share in the seed coating materials market. The increasing disposable incomes and the rising demand for healthy food products are driving the seed coating materials market.

Major players leading the seed coating materials market are Bayer Cropscience AG, BASF SE, Chemtura Corporation, Incotec Group etc. The leading players in this market adopted various strategies to strengthen the market opportunities and increase their market shares. Acquisitions, agreements & joint ventures are the major strategies adopted by major players.
