Japan Seed Treatment Market Size, Share, and COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Crop Type (Corn, Canola, Wheat, Soybean, Cotton, Rice, Other), By Application (Chemical, Biological), and Japan Seed Treatment Market Insights, Industry Trend, Forecasts to 2030

Industry: Agriculture


By Crop Type, By Application, COVID-19 Impact Analysis

During the predicted period, Japan’s seed treatment market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.7%. The Japanese Seed Treatment Market is expected to expand significantly in the coming years, owing to the increasing use of seed treatment methods in the crop production industry for increasing seed resistance against pests and insects, as well as for increasing seed strength and yield production.


Market Overview

Seed treatment is the use of biological or chemical agents to control or contain primary soil and seed-borne insect and disease infestations that affect crop productivity and crop production. The Seed Treatment Market is expected to grow continuously during the forecast period due to advancements in seed treatment technology and increased government support. Rising farmer demand for high-quality seeds is driving the market growth. Seed treatment is becoming more popular in Japan because it helps prevent the spread of plant diseases and protects seeds from seed rot. Seed treatment is important in protecting seeds and seedlings from seed and soil-borne diseases, as well as insect pests that affect crop emergence and growth. Seed treatment can help increase agricultural productivity. Inoculants, herbicide safeners, micronutrients, plant growth regulators, seed coatings, and colorants, among other technologies, can be applied to the seed. The factors driving the Japan seed treatment market include an increase in the cost of high-quality seeds such as GM and hybrid, as well as an increase in the limitations associated with crop protection product soil and foliar application. The Japan seed industry is deeply divided. On the one hand, there are large-scale integrated agribusinesses; on the other, independent operations, such as most Japanese seed companies. The manner in that Japanese seed companies operate—in tight networks and according to established customs—could play a role in facilitating domestic business mergers and the coexistence of different domestic firms.

Driving Factors

Crop productivity is threatened by shifting agro-climatic conditions. Maintaining agricultural production is a big challenge in Japan, and the answer is frequently expensive, requiring the use of high-yielding quality seeds. The high costs of hybrids and genetically modified (GM) seeds are a primary element driving the Japanese expansion of the seed treatment market.  A significant factor driving the growth of the Japan seed treatment market is the increasing popularity of hybrids and genetically modified seeds. Due to rising concerns about fumigation and foliar pesticide application, farmers are focusing on seed treatment as a way to protect their investments in high-quality seeds. In the predicted period, the seed treatment market is expected to grow due to increased government support as well as the effectiveness of the seed treatment. Large Japanese seed firms have grown as a result of increased market competitiveness and breeding technology advancement.


Restraining Factors

The higher concentration of chemicals is negatively affecting the environment, limited dose capacity, protection and shelf life of treated seeds, and phytotoxicity associated with the usage of seed treatment chemicals are expected to hamper the market growth. Another major factor restraining the market is, in many farmers unaware of different aspects of treating the seeds.


Market Segment 

Based on crop type, the Japan seed treatment market is segmented into Corn, Canola, Wheat, Soybean, Cotton, Rice, and Others. Among these, the rice crop type segment is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period. Rice is a key crop throughout Asia and the Pacific. Rice is mostly treated with chemical-based products. Farmers and governments, however, are focusing increasingly on non-chemical seed treatments due to health and environmental concerns. Root rot disease, bacterial sheath blight, root-knot nematode, and other pests are among those targeted and controlled by seed treatment in rice. Japan is the Asia-Pacific region's largest market for rice seed treatment.


On the basis of application, the Japan seed treatment market is classified into chemical and biological applications. Among these, the chemical application segment is expected to grow significantly over the projected period.
