The biological seed treatment market has a significant impact on agriculture production. Biological seed treatment is gaining better response compared to other agrochemical inputs. With regulatory ban on genetically modified seeds for cultivation in agriculturally important nations such as China and India, seed treatment has turned out as an important platform for the utilization of advanced plant biotechnology.

Bio-control agents such as bacteria (mostly Pseudomonas and Bacillus species) and fungi (Trichoderma and Ectomycorrhizae species) have been of significant importance in the protection of the seeds from pathogens. With the rising adoption of integrated pest management (IPM) practices, the application of biological seed treatment dispenses necessary control over pests and pesticide utilization and thereby limiting the risks to the human health and the environment.

This report estimates the size of the global market in terms of value. The market has been segmented on the basis of type, crop type, and region. In 2013, the global market was led by North America, where the U.S. is a major consumer. Europe is the second-largest region with regard to the application of biological seed treatment. The crop type segment is segmented into cereals & grains, oilseeds & pulses, fruits & vegetables, and other crops that include turf, forage, and ornamental & plantation crops. The global market has been studied across 5 regions with market values also being estimated at country levels.

The report provides a complete analysis of the key global players in the biological seed treatment industry, with a clear insight and commentary on the developments, trends, and their product portfolio. With a huge opportunity in the market, the existing companies have been dealing with the launch of innovative products in this market. Leading players of this industry such as BASF SE, (Germany), Bayer CropScience AG (Germany), Monsanto (U.S.), Valent Biosciences Corporation (U.S.), Syngenta AG (Switzerland), Italpollina spa (Italy), Koppert B.V. (U.S.), Arysta LifeScience Limited (Japan), and Novozymes (Denmark) have been profiled in the report. These players are executing various strategies to grow and develop in the biological seed treatment market. The leading players have been securing significant tie-ups with important seed companies and seed treaters to strengthen their global market presence.

The biological seed treatment market is projected to reach $560.98 Million by 2019, at a CAGR of 13.0%, as studied from 2014.

In the global seed treatment market, the biological method is the most acceptable one. The market for biological seed treatment has a significant impact on agricultural production. In this report, ‘Biological Seed Treatments' the market is broadly categorized as microbials and botanicals. Microbials are further segmented as bacteria, fungi, and others (virus and protozoa). The incorporation of microbial inoculants on the layers of the seeds enhances its ability to absorb soil nutrients efficiently as well as a bio-control agent. The market is also segmented on the basis of its applications in different crop types such as cereals & grains, oilseeds & pulses, fruits & vegetables, and others (turf, forage, and ornamental crops).

The cereals & grains segment was found the largest market for biological seed treatment in 2013. These microbials are generally used to control household pests and maintain turf & ornamentals, but its usage has become essential for all key crops such as tubers, fruits and vegetables.

The driving factors for this market have been to reduce the application of agrochemicals without any drop in the yield potential of the crops. In the face of environmental considerations, pesticide residue management and microbial products have been promoted by government agencies to increase the demand for natural disease-control agents and bio-fertilizers. Microbial solutions in agriculture act as a safe investment for farmers as it ensures the timely germination of seeds in stressful growth conditions and provide protection from pests & diseases.
