[226 Pages Report] The global seeds market size is projected to reach USD 86 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 7.6%, from USD 55.4 billion in 2019. Increase in seed replacement rate, adoption of GM crops, increase in organic farming, the advent of molecular breeding technology in seed, government support, and demand from biofuel and feed manufacturing companies are some of the significant drivers for the market.

According to The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), “seeds are the repository of the genetic potential of crop species and their varieties resulting from the continuous improvement and selection over time.”

Botanically, a seed is a sexually produced matured ovule of the crop, consisting of an intact embryo, endosperm, and cotyledon with a protective covering (seed coat), which can be referred as the propagating material.

Hybrid seeds are those developed through a specific controlled cross of two parent plants. Transgenic or genetically modified seeds refer to those produced by altering the genetic material (DNA) through recombinant DNA technology or genetic engineering.

By crop type, cereals and grains to account for the largest market share during the forecast period

The market for seeds is segmented, based on crop type, into cereals & grains, oilseeds & pulses, fruits & vegetables, and other crops. The cereals & grains segment is expected to account for the largest market share of the seeds market 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 type, others trait segment to hold the largest market during the forecast period

Traits other than single traits, such as insect resistance and herbicide tolerance, are primarily preferred in, as farmers prefer multiple stacked traits such as herbicide tolerance, insect resistance, and other characteristics within a single seed. These traits help the farmer to purchase a single-solution seed to overcome multiple issues such as pests, environmental stresses, diseases, and resistance to weeds. The other traits segment is expected to witness substantial market growth in the developed markets of North America and South America, during the forecast period.

APAC is projected to register the highest CAGR of the seeds market during the forecast period

The Asia Pacific region has been witnessing significant growth in the food processing and feed industries, where the cultivation area of industrial crops such as rice, corn, soybean, and wheat has been gaining better traction. Favorable climatic conditions, coupled with government initiatives directed toward the development of the agricultural sector in most of the countries in the region, is one of the driving factors for the growth of the agricultural inputs market. Other than China, which is one of the largest producers of commercial seeds in the world, countries such as Vietnam, Thailand, Japan, Indonesia, and Australia are the other important seed markets in the Asia Pacific region.

Seeds Market

North America to lead the seeds market during the forecast period

North America is one of the significant producers of soybean in the world. The US is one of the largest producers of soy and its byproducts and contributes to a substantial share in the oilseeds market. Favorable trade and price support systems prevailing in the countries of North America aid in the growth of the seeds market. While a major portion of the demand for oilseeds is from the food and feed industries, the regulatory framework for the biofuel sector of Mexico has been changing due to which the scope for oilseeds in the biofuel sector is changing as well.

Seeds Market by Region

Market Dynamics

Driver: Rise in the seed replacement rate

The seed replacement rate is defined as the percentage of new seeds procured for production to the total number of seeds used. As mentioned, traditionally, the focus was on production through farm-saved seeds only. However, as the benefits and value enhancement potential of seeds procured from specialized channels became increasingly clear, the resultant rise in the demand for seeds through such channels presents a huge opportunity.

In the global seeds market, the share of rice is minimal, owing to the high importance of other industrial crops such as cotton, corn, and soybean in the global market. For rice, farmers have been sowing hybrid seeds as compared to open varietal types in Asian countries, such as China and India, which can be reflected from the rising SRR across different Asian countries for paddy.

Seeds Market

Restraint: Uncertainty in climatic conditions

Climate change plays a vital role in the agricultural industry; it is useful in improving yield and reducing diseases and insect attacks. Uncertainty in the climatic conditions affects the crop yield, which results in the loss of crops.

Climate has a vital effect on various agricultural crop production, and sometimes, climatic factors are the natural factors for the production of some crops. Weather forecast assumes considerable importance for agrarian activities to plan agricultural practices such as sowing, irrigation, management of crop diseases & pests, and harvest planning. For instance, conventional mustard crops grow naturally in mesic temperate regions; these mustard crops are expected to reduce due to global warming and increased aridity. Increased aridity is predicted to reduce the oil concertation and seed yield of rapeseed crops.

Seeds Market

Opportunity: Demand for healthy and organic processed products

The increasing number of health-conscious consumers, coupled with growing awareness about the adverse effects of trans-fatty acids, among the consumers is expected to increase the demand for food products that contain low trans-fat levels during the forecast period. Manufacturers are developing food products that use healthier oils instead of trans-fatty acids. They are also producing high-stability oils, such as high oleic sunflower, linolenic canola, and low linolenic soybean, to capture emerging opportunities present in the market. There is also a considerable potential to replace trans-fats due to the growing demand for food products containing functional ingredients. The ever increasing agricultural land, globally, for all crop types, is also creating opportunities for seeds.

Seeds Market

Challenge: Unorganized new entrants with low profit to cost ratio

New technologies such as breeding methods are creating opportunities for the new entrants in the market, some of which are disrupting the demand for more significant players. New entrants in the market do not have brand recognition, but the seed prices of these small players are meager as compared to those of the established players, which affects the market share of the big players. The easy availability of raw materials for seed products is a crucial aspect for domestic players; however, finding the distributor and adding a layer in the value chain either reduces the profit margin or increases the product cost. The competition with the domestic players and the new cheaper technologies available for breeding are challenging the more significant players in the seeds market. Low brand loyalty is also one of the key factors challenging the seeds market, globally.

New entrants in the market offer the following advantages over established players:

  • Low initial capital investment
  • Easy access to suppliers and distributor channels
  • Weak government regulations for domestic players
  • Minimum thread of retaliation
  • Proprietary technology is not required
