The seed coating materials market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.6% from 2015 to reach a projected value of USD 1.63 Billion by 2020. The market growth is driven by increasing population demanding more food supply, rising technological advancement in the agricultural industry, and introduction of innovative seed technologies all over the globe, leading to increased use of seed coating materials. The market is further driven by factors such as growing awareness of commercial usage of seeds leading to an increased value of seed coating materials.

Depending upon crop types, the seed coating materials market is led by the cereals & grains segment, followed by the fruits & vegetables and flowers & ornamentals segments. Cereals & grains is also the fastest growing crop type in the seed coating materials market. The trend of using coated seeds is rising on a large scale in regions where there is extensive production and cultivation of cereals, grains, fruits, and vegetables, leading to growing market for seed coating materials for the mentioned crop types.

Among the types of seed coating materials, such as polymers, colorants, pellets, minerals/pumice, and others, polymers accounted for the largest market share, followed by pellets and colorants. Polymers are used on a large scale due to their functional qualities of improving the nutritive value of the seeds, helping in the application of biological seed protectants to seeds and enhancing the appearance of the seeds.
North America accounted for the largest market share for seed coating materials, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. The U.S. and Canada constituted the largest country markets in the North American region in 2014. Increasing awareness about the benefits of seed coating materials among farmers is leading to the growth in this region. The usage of seed coating materials can be treated as a risk-hedging technique and can be considered as a safe investment which has led to increased sales of coated seeds in the North American market. The seed coating materials market in the Asia-Pacific region is projected to grow with investments from several multinational manufacturers, especially in countries such as China, India, and Japan.
