Our Approach

Our analysts assisted the client with an outside-in perspective on the market potential of field crops and vegetable crops such as corn, tomato, okra, and rice by country. Further, through our AI-driven market intelligence platform, KnowledgeStore, we identified the highest potential end-use industries, viz. biofuel industry and animal feed manufacturers, and potential customers in each industry. We also helped the client to understand the competitive landscape, varying business models & strategies of different players to win in these markets. In addition, our team also interviewed a host of potential customers in end-use industries to understand their unmet needs for crop quality and characteristics. With these insights, our client services team helped the client to devise a differentiated product offering.

Revenue Shifts Identified

The Indian Seed market is highly fragmented with presence of key multinational companies and large number of small Indian seed companies which have been creating significant competition.


Growing demand from livestock industry for quality feed, need to increase livestock productivity, and adoption of modern practices for animal husbandry are driving the market for high quality protein sources such as corn and soybean meal, which is further expected to drive seeds market.

Unknowns Identified

Based on the increasing awareness for conventional & genetically modified seeds, government support, and increasing population in this region, the demand for high quality seeds has increasing in Southeast Asia. The seeds market is also rising very steeply in developing countries in Africa such as South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, and Nigeria.
