Global Seed Treatment Market Report 2022: Increased Focus on Integrated Pest Management Presents Opportunities – ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Seed Treatment Market by Type, Formulation, Application Technique, Crop Type, Function – Global Forecast to 2029” report has been added to from ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

The seed treatment market is expected to reach $11.68 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 9.9% during the forecast period 2022 to 2029. This growth in this market is driven by the growing need of low cost crop protection solutions, the growing need to increase crop yield and quality, the growing need to maintain minimum residue limits in food products, advances in seed treatment equipment, rising costs of high quality seeds such as hybrid and GM seeds, the benefits offered by seed treatment and the rapidly shrinking agricultural land.

Additionally, the growing attention to integrated pest management, increasing adoption of biological seed treatment, and emergence of biodegradable seed coatings are expected to provide significant opportunities for the growth of this market.

Based on type, the seed treatment market is segmented into chemical seed treatment and biological seed treatment. In 2022, the chemical seed treatment segment is expected to account for the largest share of the seed treatment market. However, the organic seed treatment segment is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The growth of this segment is driven by rising environmental and public health concerns regarding the use of chemical seed treatment, increasing adoption of organic farming, high demand for chemical residue-free agricultural products and government initiatives around the world to promote the use of biological seed treatment.

Based on application technique, the seed treatment market is segmented into seed coating, seed coating and seed granulation. In 2022, the seed coating segment is expected to account for the largest share of the seed treatment market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to the growing need to protect seeds from external factors, such as fungi, pests, pathogens and temperature extremes.

Based on crop type, the seed treatment market is segmented into grains and grains, oilseeds and other crops. In 2022, the cereals and grains segment is expected to account for the largest share of the seed treatment market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to the growing need to increase grain and grain production, minimize grain and grain losses due to pests and diseases, and their growing use in animal feed , biofuels and the production of starch and ethanol.

On the basis of function, the seed treatment market is segmented into seed protection and seed enhancement. In 2022, the seed protection segment is expected to account for the largest share of the seed treatment market. Seed protection treatments do not harm seeds in prolonged storage, are highly effective against all diseases and are compatible with inoculants. These advantages contribute to the large market share of this segment. However, the seed improvement segment is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period.

Based on geography, in 2022, North America is expected to account for the largest seed treatment market share. North America’s leading market share is attributed to the growing demand for high-yielding and disease-tolerant crops from domestic markets and export destinations. Additionally, factors such as an organized distribution chain for crop protection chemicals, availability of water and land, enterprising farmers, growing awareness of sustainable agricultural production techniques to reduce the he environmental impact and the presence of a large number of stakeholders support the growth of this market in the region.
