Impact Analysis of Covid-19

The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.

Seed treatment provides effective protection to the seed from insects, pathogens, and other pests. Moreover, seed treatment also contributes to the production of healthy and quality seed. It has emerged as a cost-effective solution as compared to the traditional spraying method as it is less labor-intensive and enhance overall productivity.

The global seed treatment market is projected to surpass US$ 9.8 billion by the end of 2027, in terms of revenue, growing at CAGR of 9.2% during the forecast period (2020 to 2027).

Drivers

Increasing corn production due to rising demand for biofuels is expected to foster the market growth of seed treatment. Up surging demand for biofuels subjected to rising need to conserve energy is expected to fuel the market growth of seed treatment. Increasing fungal growth due to changing climatic conditions is expected to accelerate the market growth of seed treatment over the forecast period.

Growth in the seed market owing to the growing population around the globe is expected to propel the market growth. According to the United Nations, the world population is expected to reach 9.1 billion by 2050, which in turn is expected to drive the demand for food globally. An increase in global farming coupled with the growing application of seed treatment to both GMO seed and conventional seed is expected to augment the market growth of seed treatment.

Regionally, North America dominated the global seed treatment market in 2019, reporting 42% market share in terms of revenue, followed by Europe and Asia-pacific, respectively.

Global Seed Treatment Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic

Recent disruptions in raw material availability in the manufacturing of agrochemicals owing to Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic. In addition to this, this is expected to hamper food productivity and crop yields in various nations. Governments across the developing world are focusing to ease restrictions on the manufacturing of fertilizers and chemical intermediate used in agricultural industry.

Competitive Section

Key players are operating in the global seed treatment market are Syngenta, Bayer CropScience AG, Monsanto, BASF, Advanta India Ltd, Dow Agro Sciences, DuPont, Nufarm Ltd., Chemtura Agro Solutions, and Sumitomo Chemical Co. Ltd.

Few Recent Developments

  • In October 2019, BASF’s launched new fungicide seed treatment, ILeVO, to Australian canola growers. ILeVO is a highly effective seed treatment for the management of blackleg in canola.   
  • In December 2018, BASF has expanded its soybean seed treatment portfolio with the launch of Vault IP Plus seed treatment and Obvius Plus fungicide seed treatment, recently registered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Seed treatment is referred to seeds treated with chemicals or biological substances to protect the crop from insects and other pests. It is widely used in eradicating seed borne pathogens such as bunt or smut from barley, wheat, and oats, and can also be used to suppress root rots in certain crops. Due to the low dosage nature of seed treatments, use of pesticides and fertilizers on crops is reduced resulting in significant cost savings for farmers.

Market Dynamics

Feeding the growing population globally is one of the challenge faced by the world coupled with declining agricultural land owing to soil erosion, higher salinity levels and increasing urbanization. According to the United Nations, the world population is expected to increase from 7.6 billion in 2017 to 9.8 billion in 2050. Food security is a major concern for numerous countries around the world. This is expected to foster the demand for seed treatment in the next few years.

Utilization of seed treatment has been associated with increased yield. However, various alternatives to crop protection and enhancement techniques such as crop rotation and heat treatment of seeds are restraining factors for growth of the seed treatment market.
