The seed treatment market is projected to reach USD 8.87 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 10.8%, as studied from 2015.

The market for seed treatment has a significant impact on agricultural production. Seed treatment methods are categorized by function, as crop protection chemicals and seed enhancement, which are further categorized as insecticides, fungicides, inoculants, and physical seed treatments. The seed treatment market is also segmented on the basis of its applications in various crop types, such as corn, wheat, soybean, rice, cotton, canola, and others that include fruits & vegetables, turf, ornamental & forage crop, and other cereals & oilseed crops.

Seed treatment is a term that describes both products and processes. Processes range from hot water treatment to priming. In all cases, the basis of application techniques such as seed coating and pelleting is to deliver the product to the seed at the correct dose and as uniformly as possible from seed-to-seed. Seed treatments can be used as a primary tool to conduct successful integrated pest management program for sustainable agriculture since they target the pests and diseases with smaller amounts of active ingredients per hectare and are not introduced into the atmosphere. In many cases, without the use of seed treatment, growers would have great difficulty in controlling certain early season seed-borne and soil-borne pests and diseases that would have to resort to more expensive and less environment-friendly methods.
