Asia Pacific accounted for the fastest region, during the forecast period, in terms of volume and value, respectively. Asia Pacific comprises of the largest developing countries with vast agricultural lands as compared to other regions. The per capita income of the region depends on the agricultural activities conducted in the countries. The key countries that play an important role in the agriculture sector in this region are India, China, Japan, and Thailand. Cereals & grains, fruits & vegetables, are the leading agricultural commodities grown in these countries. Rice cultivation and the predominance of small-scale manufacturers are widely seen across all the countries of Asia Pacific.

North America dominates the market contributing to 39% in the global seed protection market. The region is a key exporter of agricultural products. It is mainly dominated by large-scale operations, primarily focused on exports. North America has an advantage of having a very organized distribution chain. Factors such as fertile soil, availability of water and land, entrepreneurial farmers, and efficient infrastructure are the key competitive advantages the North American market has. The major cultivated crops in the region include corn, soybean, and wheat, which account for 70% of cultivation, followed by canola, alfalfa, cotton, and barley. Seed treatment is the safest alternative to protect crops with a minimum residue level. Plant extracts and oil-based seed treatments for organic farming, a seed treatment for abiotic stress, and controlled-release technology in seed treatment are the key points of the growth of the North American market.

Non-chemical treatment by type is projected to have the highest growth rate in the seed treatment market.

Non-chemical seed treatment is achieved in two ways, namely, physical and biological seed treatment. Physical seed treatment includes activities, such as steam, heat, or irradiation for seed protection, which means they function by disinfecting the seeds through non-chemical methods. Since in physical seed treatment, there is no use of chemical methods; this type of seed treatment method is appropriate for organic farming to control bacteria that may harm seeds.

Biological seed treatment methods include microorganisms that are used to protect seeds against seed-and soil-borne diseases. This treatment method is an effective alternative to chemical seed treatment.

By crop type, the oilseeds is projected to grow with the highest growth rate in the seed treatment market.

The oilseeds include soybean, cotton, canola, sunflower, and other oilseeds. The oilseeds refer to plants or seeds primarily used to extract fats and oils, also known as lipids. Soybean is among the leading providers of vegetable protein and oil. It is popular among producers as it can be grown in a wide variety of soil and climatic conditions. Moreover, The demand for canola as an alternative to soybean has increased for its economical pricing. Due to its functional properties, safflower oil is used in the treatment of skin infections, bone-related disorders, and atherosclerosis. These oilseeds contribute to the growth of the oilseeds segment.

The seed enhancement segment by function is projected to grow with the highest growth rate in the seed treatment market over the forecast period.

Seed enhancement includes practices and technologies that improve the seed germination and seedling growth, thereby improving the overall crop’s harvested yield and quality. The seed enhancement market is further segmented into products, which enhance the viability of the seed and functions that include processes used to enhance seeds. There has been an increase in research & development investments carried out to develop new and better products, such as biofertilizers and crop protection chemicals, biologicals.
Treatments such as pelleting, film-coating, and encrusting are included, which improve seed sowing. Some treatments, such as nutrients, enhance nutrient availability or provide inoculates required for seedling establishment.

The seed dressing segment by application technique is projected to grow with the highest CAGR of the seed treatment market over the forecast period.

The seed is dressed in a dry formulation or often is wet treated with a slurry or liquid formulation. Earthen pots which are extremely cost effective are used for mixing pesticides with a seed or seeds and can be spread on a polythene sheet wherein the required quantity of chemicals can be sprinkled on a seed lot and mixed mechanically by farmers. Research studies have revealed that leaves and seeds of the neem (Azardirachata indica), custard apple (Annona squamosa), and aloe vera (Aloe Vera L.) sap are used as seed-dressing alternatives. Seed dressing has been a normal practice in the Asia Pacific region due to its low application costs. Key players are focusing on offering customized seed dressing formulations through localized seed treating centers.

The liquid solution segment by formulation is projected to grow with the highest CAGR of the seed treatment market over the forecast period.

Formulations have a significant impact on the survival of microbial during the process of product elaboration, storage, and application. The growth of microrganisms depends in various physical and chemical properties of the seed treatment formulations used. The liquid solution, also known as ‘quick wet’ method, is used for mainly for seed protection. For instance, fungicides can be applied to the seed and mixed well ensures proper coating of the solution. The free-flowing liquid solution then penetrates the seed coat, instead of sitting on the surface. This method can be used for fertilizer and nutritents such as trace elements. As there is high absorption rate, less of the product is required to be applied on the seeds.

Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest growing region in the seed treatment market during the forecast period

Asia Pacific seed treatment market is projected to grow with highest CAGR due to the growing agriculture industry in China and Japan. Demand for seed treatment has been growing in this region, due to global players increasing their investments of business lines in agricultural inputs to exclusively meet the demand of crop growers to attain export quality.
