Global Seed Treatment Market Industry Overview

The seed treatment market was valued at $7,924.6 million in 2021, which is expected to grow with a CAGR of 9.43% and reach $13,587.0 million by 2027. The growth in the global seed treatment market is expected to be driven by increasing seed and soil-borne diseases and the growing demand for treated seeds.

Market Lifecycle Stage

The seed treatment market is in the development phase. Increased research and development activities are underway to develop treated seeds, biological seed treatment products, and seed pelleting techniques, which are expected to increase the demand for seed treatment in farming practices.

Increasing investments in the R&D of seed treatment is one of the major opportunities in the global seed treatment market. Moreover, the functions of seed treatment such as seed protection, seedling protection, and seed germination are attracting seed manufacturers, farmers, and animal feed producers.
 

Global Seed Treatment Market

Impact

•    With an increasing precision farming and a rise in seed-borne diseases creating the market opportunity for seed treatment manufacturers. As seed treatment saves the cost in farming practices and enhances seed germination, farmers are adopting seed treatment in their farming practices. Also, North America and Europe are adopting the Agriculture 4.0 revolution trend and increasing biological seed treatment products in farming practices. This creates better opportunities in North American and European markets.
•    Additionally, seed treatment products are used in various crop types including oilseeds, cereals & grains, and fruits & vegetables. The growing demand for treated seeds furthermore drives the seed treatment market during the forecast period 2022-2027.

Impact of COVID-19

COVID-19 pandemic directly impacted on manufacturing and transportation activities of the seed treatment market. Due to the pandemic, the supply chain of the seed treatment market was disturbed at the global level. Various governments closed their international trades and production units, due to these seed treatment markets being hampered more at the global level. In mid of 2021, manufacturing and transportation activities of the seed treatment started gradually, and international trades started efficiently. Therefore, the production and consumption of seed treatment products are expected to increase post-COVID-19 pandemic.

Market Segmentation:

Segmentation 1: by Application Technique
•    Seed Coating
•    Seed Dressing
•    Seed Pelleting

The global seed treatment market in the application technique segment is expected to be dominated by the seed coating application technique. All treated seeds are mass-produced and are used seed treatment products for seed coating application techniques commonly in developing counties.

Segmentation 2: by Crop Type
•    Oilseeds
•    Cereals & Grains
•    Fruits & Vegetables
•    Others

The global seed treatment market in the crop type is expected to be dominated by cereals and grains crop type. The cereals and grains include rice, wheat, corn, sorghum, and barely. The growing demand of cereals & grains, and the rise in awareness of treated cereals & grains seeds further drive the seed treatment market in near future.

Segmentation 3: by Product Type
•    Chemical Seed Treatment
•    Non-Chemical Seed Treatment

The global seed treatment market is dominated by the chemical seed treatment segment. Chemical seed treatment includes insecticide, fungicide, nematicide, fertilizer, plant growth nutrients, or a combination of crop protection chemicals. The growing demand for high-value insecticide and fungicide seed treatment products are driving the chemical seed treatment market globally.

Segmentation 4: by Formulation
•   Liquid Solution
•   Powder
•   Emulsion
•   Flowable Concentrate
•   Water Dispersible Powder for Slurry
•   Others

The global seed treatment market is dominated by the liquid solution segment. Due to the ease of use and high effectiveness of seed treatment products, liquid solution seed treatment products are booming in the market. The increasing acceptance of biological seed treatment products and organic farming practices are driving the growth of the liquid solution formulation.

Segmentation 5: by Function
•   Seed Protection
•   Seed Enhancement

The seed treatment market differentiates depending on its functionality. Based on functionality, the seed treatment market is segmented into two major types, including seed protection and seed enhancement. Seed protection is a primarily important function because it enables the plant to imbibe certain beneficial properties prior to germination.

Segmentation 6: by Region
•    North America - U.S., Canada, and Mexico
•    Europe - Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, and Rest-of-Europe
•    China
•    U.K.
