Summary - A new market study, titled “ Global Seed Treatment Market - 2018 - 2025” has been featured on WiseGuyReports.
The Global Seed Treatment market was valued at USD xx million in 2017 and is estimated to reach USD xx million by 2025, with a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2025. Seed Treatment refers to usages of specific products, and specific techniques can im-prove the growth environment for the seed, seedlings and young plants. Seed treatment, by its protective coating around the seed, acts as a barrier once the seed is planted to ward off the attack by both seed-borne and soil-borne organisms.
Seed treatment has become popular due to various benefits. Seed treatment products help maximize seedling establishment and early plant growth, resulting in increased forage yields. These products compare favorably with 'broadacre' pesticide applications in terms of cost per hectare.
Seed treatment products are effective against a range of common insect pests and diseases. Also, Seed treatment products are not harmful to beneficial organisms such as earthworms. Seed treatments contain very small quantities of active- ingredients, so the environmental impact of seed treatment is much lower than chemical pesticides. Use of GMO, as well as Non-GMO proprietary seeds, requires the use of seed treatment since they are costly. The use of proprietary seeds is increasing all over the world. This is driving the seed treatment market.
High-tech seed treatment processes are generally very expensive. Small scale farmers, farmers in developing world can’t afford the cost which is limiting the growth of the market.
The greater availability of seed treatment options that could be certified for use on organic seed could potentially boost the market. In March 2018, Indigo Ag, Inc. has received organic certification for the company’s microbial seed treatment in corn.
Seed Treatment market is segmented by Function, Type, Crop type, and Method. By Func-tion, seed treatment market is segmented into Fungicide, Insecticide, Inoculant, Plant Growth Regulators, and Fertilizers. By Type, the market is segmented into Physical, Chemi-cal, and Biological seed treatment. Although physical seed treatment methods are common-ly used, they are inexpensive & account for a minor share in terms of market value. Chemi-cal segment dominates the market since they offer much better protection to seeds. By Crop Type, the market is segmented into Cereals & Grains, Oilseeds & Pulses, Nuts, fruits & Vegetables, Others (Sugarcane). Corn & Sorghum these cereal crops extensively use seed treatment. Most commercial corn seed available today comes with a base package that in-cludes a fungicide and insecticide. Therefore cereals & grains segment dominates the mar-ket. Seed treatment for soybean is most common in oilseed segment. Among other crops, cotton seed treatment is prevalent.
Title: Seed Treatment market, By crop Type in 2017
Cereals & Grains 45%
Oilseeds & Pulses 30%
Nuts, Fruits, and Vegetables 15%
By Method, the market is segmented into Seed dressing, Seed coating, and Seed pelleting. Seed dressing is the most common whereas seed pelleting is the most expensive and tech-nologically sophisticated.
By region, Seed Treatment market is segmented into Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, South America, and Rest of the World. Patented, High-quality seeds are widely used in North America. Protection of these valuable seeds is critical hence North America leads the seed treatment market. In Asia, farmers often save their seeds. They also use less technologically advanced seed protection methods such as Hot-water treatment. Hence Asia-pacific has a relatively smaller share of the market. Increase in use of high-quality seeds is expected to drive the seed treatment market in the Asia-pacific region. South America also has a signifi-cant share of the market since Brazil, Argentina are major producers of Corn, Soybean which require seed treatment.
