The seed treatment market growing by the public sector's supporting agricultural policies and efforts to make agriculture more lucrative and profitable. The growth of the global seed treatment market driven because of increasing popularity associated with hybrids and genetically modified seeds is a significant factor. Due to increasing issues related to fumigation and foliar application of pesticides, farmers are focusing on seed treatment as a mode to protect investments made on good quality seeds.
Growing awareness regarding developed and advanced agricultural methods, the farmers are shifting from traditional farming methods to modern farming methods. Increasing government support, as well as the effectiveness of the seed treatment, is boosting the growth of the seed treatment market in the forecast period.
Additionally, Increased utilization of seed treatment, especially in developing economies for higher yields in fruits & vegetable crops has been observed recently, and this trend is expected to continue further worldwide because of the increasing demand for fruits & vegetables.
The main restrain of seed treatment market growth is its sub-optimal usage in countries where it can play an important role in overall yield enhancement and crop protection. Another major factor restraining the market is, in many developing countries farmers are unaware of different aspects of treating the seeds.
The seed treatment industry is regulated by different organizations, government bodies, and associations such as the Asia Pacific Seed Association (APSA), USDA, European Commission, Health Canada, and others. The companies working in the seed treatment industry space are required to follow the regulatory guidelines set by various bodies. These regulations differ across countries making it challenging for the manufacturers to follow all of them. The utilization of active ingredients in the solutions developed for seed treatment requires various approvals before the commercialization of the product.
The Global Seed Treatment Market share is classified into the type, application technique, function, crop type, and formulation.
In 2021, Chemical treatment segment is leading the market with the largest market share.
Based on the type, the global seed treatment market is segmented into chemical, and non-chemical. The chemical treatment segment held the largest share of the seed treatment market and is expected to grow further in the coming years. The reason behind the growth of chemical treatment is to provide a stronger repelling ability against insects, pests, and microorganisms as compared to non-chemical treatment products. The chemicals treatment segment takes less time to control plant diseases and pests as compared to non-chemicals.
The non-chemical treatment segment is estimated to exhibit considerable growth as these treatments are made up of renewable resources that contain naturally occurring active ingredients that protect against soil-borne pathogens, increase plant growth, and improve abiotic stress.
Seed dressing segment is witnessing the fastest market growth in the seed treatment market.
Based on the application technique, the global seed treatment market is segmented into seed coating, seed pelleting, seed dressing, and other application techniques. Among these, seed dressing is the fastest-growing segment in the upcoming years. It allows the seed to germinate quicker than non-treated seeds. The reason behind the growth is seed dressings promote early relations with usable and beneficial soil microorganisms than other application techniques. Among the other application techniques seed coating is expected to hold a significant share of the global market. The market growth is mainly credited to the factors like broad-spectrum usage of all crops along with the rising commercial value of seeds by enhancing their appearance of them.
seed protection segment is forecasted to witness the fastest growth in the seed treatment market.
On the basis of function, the global seed treatment market is differentiated into seed protection and seed enhancement. The seed protection segment is forecasted to witness the fastest growth in the seed treatment market. Seed protection provides a complete protection solution against different plant stressors. Seed protection treatments offer competitive costs, reduce application efforts, and save time compared to conventional crop protection.
Cereals segment is expected to hold the highest share of the market.
Based on the crop type, the global seed treatment market is segmented into Cereals, Grains, Oilseeds, Fruits & Vegetables. Among these, the demand for cereals is increasing as they have a wide range of applications in the food industry, hence cereals segment is expected to hold the highest share of the market.
