Market Restraints

High cost of tomato seeds is expected to hamper the market growth of tomato seeds over the forecast period. In order to reduce impact of weather on cultivation of tomatoes and increasing per acre yield of tomatoes, the region utilizes maximum number of greenhouse facilities to grow tomatoes. Seeds used for growing tomatoes in greenhouses differ from the seeds used to grow them under natural conditions. Thus, the price of seeds used for greenhouse-produced tomatoes is comparatively higher than the cost of seeds used in natural environment.

Market Trends

Increasing production of tomato seeds in Europe is one of the growing trends in the region. For instance, according to data published by European Commission in August 2021, the harvested production of tomatoes in European Union (EU) was 16,575 ‘000 tons in 2019. Amongst all European nations, Italy’s tomato production is highest and accounted for 5,252.7 ‘000 tons in 2019, followed by Spain at 5,000.6 ‘000 tons in 2019. Thus, increasing tomato production is boosting growth of the tomato seeds market in the Europe region.
