United States emerges as the most mature market, in terms of adoption of fresh tomato seeds, where innovative strategies, including development of new varieties with better tastes, are required to sustain the growth.

Growth In Demand Of Tomatoes As A Result Of Increasing Derived Demand

With the increasing disposable income and living standards, processed foods are in great demand. There is a growing demand for processed tomato products in the form of frozen products and canned products, which include tomato sauces like pasta sauces, soups, curries, and juices. The US Economic Research Service (US-ERS) Data indicates that, 89% of tomatoes are grown for the purpose of canning.

Rising Interest For New Varieties

Markets in US, Canada and EU are mature, in terms of adoption of hybrid and high yielding seeds. Major players in developed economies are investing in R&D in order to bring tomato varieties with better tastes, exotic shapes, and colors. There are increasing trends towards the production of greenhouse tomatoes in countries such as the United States, Canada, and France. Moreover, in Mexico, 70% of the Protected Culture (PC) is claimed by the tomato cultivation, alone (Guan, Zhengfei et al., 2016).

Asia Pacific Is The Fastest Growing Market

Asia-Pacific is expected to grow faster, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.7%. Expanding cultivation in the region, especially in China and India, along with the adoption of hybrid varieties with better disease and drought resistance traits, emerges as a major growth driver. In 2016, China recorded a 2.7% increase from the previous year, and is expected to register a growth of 1.3% in 2017. Due to intensification of hybrids and HYVs, the yield is consistently increasing as well. In fact, the tomato yield per hectare in China was 54% larger than the global average in 2014.
