Report Code: AGI 3465 Apr, 2021, by marketsandmarkets.com

[332 Pages Report] The global seed market size is estimated to account for a value of USD 63.0 billion in 2021 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% from 2021, to reach a value of USD 86.8 billion by 2026. The growing demand for seeds from the food, beverage, animal feed, and biofuels industry is driving the growth of the market. Demand for seeds has witnessed steady growth in countries such as China and India. With these countries accounting for the largest population, an ever-increasing demand for food grains also drives the seeds market growth. In developed markets, farmers are trying to maintain the crop yield and increase their returns. This sustained approach from developed and developing countries in agricultural practices has been driving the global seeds market growth.

COVID-19 impact on Seeds market

The outbreak of COVID-19 and the measures taken to control the pandemic are having a crippling effect on the agriculture sector across the globe. Seeds are the starting point for agricultural production; therefore, during times of crisis such as the COVID-19 pandemic, seed delivery is among the essential services that must continue to operate to support the current and subsequent production cycles. However, issues related to transportation of seeds either domestically or internationally due to the reduced number of flights, low number of drivers and slow process of the necessary documentation because of lower number of staff is creating specific problems for the seed sector.

Due to the pandemic of COVID-19, there has been a delay in the supply of seeds to farmers and is a major pain point as seed production depends on allied sectors such as labor, transporting, and packaging, which have been impacted due to the lockdown. COVID-19 impact on the agriculture and agri-allied sectors remain latent, especially with the inability of small farmers to move their products from their farms to markets, both semi-urban and urban, and to source agricultural quality inputs in some regions across the globe. Immediate actions are required to facilitate farmers' access to seeds and other agricultural inputs; the disruptions caused by COVID-19 may lead to a decrease in agricultural production and acreages due to the unavailability of required quality and quantity of seeds to plant across the globe.

Seeds Market Dynamics

Driver: High adoption of biotech crops

Biotechnology is being used to develop stress-tolerant and more nutritious crop varieties to protect natural resources. According to the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA), the area under bio tech crops has increased 113-fold from 1.7 million hectares in 1996 to 191.7 million hectares in 2018 – this makes biotech crops the fastest adopted crop technology in recent times. Biotech crops have expanded beyond the major crops such as corn, soybeans, cotton, and canola to other crops such as alfalfa, sugar beets, papaya, squash, eggplant, potatoes, and apples. Additionally, biotech crop research conducted by public sector institutions include rice, banana, potatoes, wheat, chickpea, pigeon pea, and mustard with various economically-important and nutritional quality traits beneficial to food producers and consumers in developing countries.

Constraint: High R&D expenses on quality seed development lead to high seed price

The seed industry is one of the most R&D intensive industries. The R&D spends vary between companies depending on the company’s strategy and choice of techniques. This is in stark contrast with the crop protection industry, where a majority of the leading companies have a similar percentage of the sale on R&D. Due to erratic climatic conditions and high demand for food from end consumers, the adoption of genetically-modified seeds is higher among farmers. The cost of developing GM seeds is higher, thereby pushing up the price of the seed. Certain companies have a pioneering position in the development of GM seeds with specific traits (insect resistance and herbicide tolerance), due to which they are in a better position to charge a premium for their products (seeds). Hybrid seeds and organic seeds of different varieties of vegetables and fruits such as tomatoes, apples, grapes, and melons also cost higher than the average price of seed; farmers could use existing seeds from the previous harvest cycle to reduce the overall expenditure on seeds. This could have a negative impact on the growth of the market for seeds.

Opportunity: Molecular breeding in seeds

The molecular breeding technique is the most promising technology that is used for developing seeds. Gene-tagged markers help in reducing the time consumed in the selection of the desired genes in progenies and parents. Marker-assisted selection, QTL analysis, and genetic transformation are some of the key techniques that have been used as tools for oilseed molecular breeding. Chinese breeders have identified various traits such as high-quality grain and yield, pest resistance, and abiotic tolerance with the help of QTL analysis. To get better and faster results, many genetic breeding techniques have been developed in the past few years.

Challenge: Commercialization of fake hybrid seeds and counterfeit of products

According to the International Seed Federation (ISF), there has been an increase in illegal seed practices, including counterfeit seeds, fake seeds, fraudulent labelling, infringement of intellectual property, and regulatory offenses. Over the years, there has been an increase in the number of incidents reported the counterfeit of labels and bags of seeds being sold in developing nations. The phenomenon is largely driven by the fact that low-income farmers are not in a position to purchase seeds in large quantities. This paves the way for the sellers to breakdown the bags, repack them in smaller volumes and sell them in loose form. This creates an opportunity for adulteration.

By type, the genetically-modified seeds are projected to be the fastest-growing segment in the seeds market during the forecast period.

Genetically-modified seeds are projected to account for the fastest-growing segment. The Genetically modified seeds enable farmers to reduce their running costs significantly, for example agrochemical treatments, while guaranteeing a much more abundant harvest. They are therefore sold at a significantly higher price than conventional seeds.

By crop type, the cereals & grains is projected to dominate the seeds industry during the forecast period.

The cereals & grains segment is projected to hold the largest seed market share during the forecast period Owing to factors such as the widespread use of grains as a staple food in many Asian and Southeast Asian countries. In the past few years, countries such as China have emerged as major exporters of grains to meet the requirement of neighboring economies. Crops such as corn are widely utilized in both the food and feed industries. With the rising market for biofuels, crops such as sorghum are also being produced on a large scale. An increase in awareness for protein- and vitamin-rich diets is driving the demand for fruits and vegetable seeds globally.

By trait, the other traits segment is projected to dominate the seeds market during the forecast period.

The market for crops with other traits is growing significantly in the market. The increasing adoption of crops with multiple traits has allowed for the reduction in usage of herbicides and insecticides and thereby reduced the cost of cultivation. Companies such as Syngenta Group (Switzerland) are offering seeds with stacked traits through its commercial line—Agrisure. The company’s R&D is being directed toward the development of new molecular stacks, which would allow hybrids to have three or more traits within it. This way, the farmers would be able to attain higher yield and greater resistance to pest and herbicides.

Seeds Market  by Region

Asia Pacific to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period.

The seeds market in the Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Supportive regulations and an increase in food and feed demand are also driving their adoption, along with subsidy provisions for their acceptance in these markets, especially in the Asia Pacific region.
