The seed treatment market, in terms of value, is projected to reach around USD 9.82 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 10.8% from 2016 to 2021.

The seed treatment market has grown exponentially in the recent years. Seed treatments have a significant impact control on the agricultural sector as a way of protecting crops.. Increased crop rotation practices due to the population growth have led to an increase in the number of seed treatment products. These seed treatment solutions are made affordable by the manufacturers for end users, thereby driving the growth of the seed treatment market.

The market by region is segmented as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and RoW.

The years considered for the study are as follows:

  • Base year – 2015
  • Estimated year – 2016
  • Projected year – 2021
  • Forecast period – 2016 to 2021

The Objectives of the study includes:

  • To define, segment, and project the seed treatment market with respect to its types, crop types, functions, application technologies, and key geographic markets
  • To analyze the opportunities in the seed treatment market for stakeholders and provide details of the competitive landscape for market leaders
  • To strategically profile the key players and comprehensively analyze their market share and core competencies

This report includes an estimation of market sizes for value (USD million) and volume (tons). Both top-down and bottom-up approaches have been used to estimate and validate the size of the seed treatment market and various other dependent submarkets in the overall market. Key players in the market have been identified through secondary research, and their market share in their respective regions has been determined through primary and secondary research. All percentage shares, splits, and breakdowns have been determined using secondary sources and were verified through primary sources.

The seed treatment value chain includes manufacturers such as BASF SE (Germany), Syngenta AG (Switzerland), Monsanto Company (U.S.), Bayer CropScience AG (Germany) and Platform Specialty Products Corporation (U.S.).The products manufactured by these companies are used by end users like crop producers and farmers. However, whether or not the process reaches a successful outcome with the delivery of products capable of commercially meeting the market’s new demands, is to a large extent determined by regulation. Crop protection chemicals by their very nature are toxic substances; hence, a great deal of concern has centered on their safety. Besides legal restrictions, crop protection chemicals are also subject to stringent quality control standards like any other manufactured products. Regulatory approvals have been defined as a distinct part of the value chain, adding up to 35%–45% value.
