“The seed treatment market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 10.82% during the forecast period.”

This market has been gaining prominence among farmers to improve the agricultural yield and curb excessive pesticide application. Factors such as growing demand for precision farming and increasing awareness about the environmental concerns associated with excessive pesticide use across the world are projected to drive the seed treatment market. On the other hand, factors such as the high cost of seed treatment products and the low adoption rate of technology in developing markets are expected to restrain the growth of the seed treatment market.

“The oilseeds & pulses segment to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period.”

On the basis of crop type, the oilseeds & pulses segment is projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. The increasing cultivated areas under soybean, canola, and sunflower in North America, Asia Pacific, and Europe are projected to drive the application of seed treatment in these crops for their higher industrial value.

“The seed coating segment, by application technique, led the market in 2016.”

On the basis of application technique, the seed coating segment dominated the market in 2017 due to the increased adoption of this technique across the globe. Huge demand for multifunctional seed technologies and the advent of controlled-release technology in seed treatment are the factors driving the growth of seed coating.

“Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period.”

Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing region in the seed treatment market between 2017 and 2022. The Asia Pacific region has been experiencing significant demand for seed treatment due to the need to undertake efforts to minimize the environmental concerns associated with excessive pesticide use. There has been a positive trend in the consumption of insecticide seed treatment in countries such as Australia, China, and other developing countries of the region.

The seed treatment market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 10.82% from USD 6.76 Billion in 2017, to reach USD 11.31 Billion by 2022. Due to the increasing demand for integrated pest management practices to minimize pesticide usage, seed treatment products have been gaining preference for their beneficial characteristics such as the ability to combat early-season diseases and pests and their effect on crop yield.

On the basis of type, the chemical seed treatment segment is estimated to account for a larger share of the market in 2017, due to the increasing demand for insecticides especially neonicotinoids and fungicides for seed treatment solutions.

On the basis of crop type, the oilseeds & pulses segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the growth in demand for oilseeds such as canola, soybean, and sunflower across the globe in the fuel and feed industries owing to which highly efficient agricultural inputs are being sought by farmers. Also, due to the high prices of GM cotton, farmers are inclining towards the adoption of treated cotton seeds in Asia Pacific countries to avoid crop failure due to fungal diseases and manage their investment risks.

On the basis of function, the seed protection segment accounted for the largest market share in 2016, due to the increased demand for efficient crop protection pesticides among farmers for their effective results and limited crop losses from pest attacks. However, there is an increasing awareness of the toxic effects associated with chemical pesticides, owing to which manufacturers are developing biopesticides for seed treatment purposes.

The American region accounted for the highest adoption of seed treatment in 2016, majorly contributed by countries such as the US, Brazil, and Canada. The high adoption of insecticide seed treatment for corn, soybeans, and canola in these countries are the major reasons for their dominance in the market. Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing market for seed treatment in agricultural applications from 2017 to 2022. The significant growth in adoption of biologicals strengthened the market potential for local manufacturers to develop better and more efficient products such as biostimulants and biofertilizers.

The seed treatment market has been evolving in developing regions with key manufacturers involved in the research and development of better, non-toxic, and non-chemical alternatives to pesticides. The popularity of these products depends on the understanding of their constituents and benefits among farmers. Owing to the awareness about the effectiveness of these pesticides, companies develop them as easy-to-apply products for agricultural purposes. The rise in the number of instances where the development of insecticide resistance among pests has been witnessed as a challenge for the growth of the seed treatment market.

Key players identified in the seed treatment market include Bayer (Germany), Monsanto (US), Syngenta (Switzerland), BASF (Germany), Dow AgroSciences (US), DuPont (US), FMC (US), Sumitomo Chemical (Japan), Arysta LifeScience (US), Incotec (Netherlands), Nufarm (Australia), UPL (India), and Germains (UK), as these are well-established and financially stable players that have been operating in the industry for several years. Most key participants have been exploring new regions through expansions, acquisitions, new product developments, and joint ventures across the globe to avail a competitive advantage through combined synergies.
