US Seed Market
The US seed market is the largest seed industry in the world. The US seed market has grown at a CAGR of ~% from 2012 to reach USD ~ billion in 2017. The industry accounted for ~% of the global market in 2016. The industry is a leading provider of new technology that is advancing the productivity of food and fiber production through heavy investment in research and development (R&D).
The market witnessed some head swings in the past but is able to sustain the growth in last 5 years. The country is the leader and produces more than ~% of the global harvest with commercialized biotech crops. In 2016, ~ million hectares were planted to major biotech crops. The country is a huge exporter of seeds to the Asia Pacific Region and Europe.
US Seed Market Segmentation
Non-hybrid seeds are also called open pollinated seeds or heirloom seeds. The US market for non Hybrid seeds is small and have a market share of ~% in 2017. Non Hybrid seeds were used in the early part of the 20th Century but were replaced later with Hybrid and GM seeds with the advancement in technology and Innovation. Hybrid seeds category is the second largest segment in the US after GM seeds. The hybrid seed segment has a market share of ~% in 2017 growing at a CAGR of ~% from 2012 to 2017.
The number of patents for hybrid seeds has increased exponentially with rise in R&D expenditure. The steadily increasing yields for cotton, soybeans, wheat, and corn over time have led to the growth of Hybrid seed segment.
The GM seeds segment has been growing at a CAGR of ~% in the last 5 years and contributed a market share of ~% in 2017. The area under cultivation for GM seeds has been ~ acres in 2016. Some of the crops that use GM seeds are Soybean, Maize, Cotton, and Canola. Maize is the leader in terms of total cultivated area in 2016.
Competitive Analysis of Major Market Players
Some of the major players in the US Seed market are Monsanto (recently acquired by Bayer), Groupe Limagrain, Syngenta, Bayer Crop Science, Rijk Zwaan, Sakata,
DuPont (Pioneer), Bejo. There are only few players in the market but are large in size so the market is concentrated as artificial barriers are created by these major players in the seed industry. The biggest artificial barrier is R&D expenditure and patents by these large firms. In 2017, DuPont Pioneer and Monsanto continued to dominate the seed industry and accounted for ~% of the corn seed business and ~% of the soybean seed business in the country. Monsanto gained market share on both fronts while DuPont Pioneer slipped.
Future Outlook of the seed Industry
The growing population of the world and the US will be a major factor for the growth of the seed industry in the US. The population of the world is growing at a rate of ~% in 2016. The US is an exporter of seeds to various countries in the Asia Pacific region, Europe, South East Asia. The expanding world population, rising adoption of biotech crops across the world, an increase in the usage of biofuels and animal feed, and growing land reclamation for agricultural purposes are the major growth factors driving the seed market. On the other hand, the lower adoption rate of GM crops in various countries, coupled with their lengthy approval time, extensive research and time involved in stabilizing and introducing new seed varieties and consolidating seed market are the major constraints for the industry. The seed industry is investing heavily in R&D, for a generation of a new variety of seeds with desirable traits.
Some of the most important traits desired by the farmers are high yield, seed rate /hectare, biotic and abiotic resistances, high nutrient content, etc. The top US players are trying to include these traits in their products to sustain high levels of competition and maintain their market share. Technological innovation and a growing demand in the developing countries are the major areas of opportunities for the seed market. It is estimated that the US seed industry will grow at a CAGR of ~% by 2022.
