Global Seed Treatment Market Outlook, and Revenue Forecast: Ken Research

What Is the Size of Global Seed Treatment Industry?

Global Seed Treatment market is growing at a CAGR of ~% in 2017-2022 and is expected to reach ~USD Bn by 2028F.

The Seed Treatment Market is largely driven by rising demand of the seeds as it offers low-cost protection against diseases and soil-borne organisms and protects weak seeds, resulting in improved germination.

Another major factor, driving the agriculture industry to adopt Seed Treatment measures, is its capacity to empower seeds to fight against unfavourable weather conditions. Such unfavourable weather conditions might result in cold and damp soils or extremely dry soils that encourage the breeding, growth, and development of fungi spores. For instance, in the United States, in 2010 and 2012, high night time temperatures had an immensely negative impact on corn

yields. Similarly, premature budding caused by a warm winter resulted in losses worth US$220 million of cherries in Michigan in 2012.

Furthermore, Ingredients used in Seed Treatment products are harmful to humans, animals, and also to seeds in some cases. Treated seeds that go unsold cannot be used as animal feed. The limiting peripheral or ancillary use of these treated seeds often hampers the scalability of the market. Treating the seeds at the correct dosage rate is also critical to the treatment’s success. For instance, seeds with high moisture percentage can get easily damaged when treated with concentrated liquid products.

Global Seed Treatment Market by Type

The Global Seed Treatment Market is segmented by Type into Chemical and Non-Chemical.

According to Ken Research’s analysis, the majority of the seed treatment procedures are carried out through the Chemical route.

Chemical treatment of seeds can be done by applying insecticides, fungicides, or nematicides, including fumigants, carbamates, etc. Non-chemical or biological seed protection processes involve bio-insecticides, bio-fungicides, and bio-nematicides.

According to the observations put out by the Iowa State University, fungicide seed treatment can be beneficial for seeds with less than 80% germination rate. These types of seeds are typically considered to be of low vigor. Fungicides are also considered effective treatment tools when seeds are planted early in cold or wet soils and reduced till and no-till fields.

The seed coating segment is estimated to occupy the largest market share in 2022 as far as treatment/application techniques are concerned.

The techniques of seed dressing involve treating crop seeds with fungicides and/or insecticides so that they are well-equipped to fight out the fungal diseases and insects that attack from both below and above ground. The process of seed coating implies covering the seeds with manageable amounts of exogenous materials. Film coating or microbial coating are popular seed coating types. Finally, in the process of Seed Pelleting, inert materials are added to the seeds to increase their weight, size, or shape.

Global Seed Treatment Market by Crop

The Global Seed Treatment Market is segmented by Crop into Grains and Cereals, Oilseeds and Pulses, Fruits and Vegetables and Other Crop Types (Forages, Alfalfa, Flower seeds, etc.).

The Cereal and Grains segment is expected to emerge as the largest crop segment as far as the application of seed treatment techniques is concerned.

Production in the World Cereal Market, according to the data provided by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), almost 2,645 million tons of cereals were produced during the 2018-2019 period, and the production was estimated to cross the mark of 2,800 million tons in 2022.

Global Seed Treatment Market by Formulation

The Global Seed Treatment market is segmented by Formulation into Liquid Formulation and Dry Formulation.

Although the liquid formulation segment is expected to account for the largest share in 2022, the dry formulation segment is estimated to witness faster growth during the forecasted period. 

There are several types of liquid formulations that agriculturists try out on a regular basis for a range of crop seed types. For instance, soaking paddy seeds in 1% Potassium Chloride solution for 12 hours helps improve the germination potential. A similar outcome is achieved when Sorghum seeds are soaked in Sodium Chloride and Potassium Dihydrogen Phosphate solutions for 12 hours. Dry formulation seed treatments, on the other hand, help maintain the integrity of seed coatings. The growth in this segment is driven by the utilitarian benefits of the process: it is easy to apply and store and comes at a low cost.
