Global Seed Treatment Market is projected to grow at a significant CAGR from 2017 to 2025
The application of chemical ingredients to seeds is known as seed treatment; it protects the seed from pest attacks and enhances overall growth of the plant. Increasing prices of high quality seeds, reducing arable land area, cost-effectiveness, and government initiatives are factors supporting the growth of the seed treatment market. Based on type, the seed treatment market is segmented into chemical and non-chemical categories. The non-chemical category can be further segregated into physical seed treatment and biological seed treatment. Based on property, the market is segmented into crop protection chemicals and seed enhancement. The crop protection chemicals segment holds a larger market share, which accounts for insecticides, herbicides and fungicides. Seed enhancement segment can also be further segmented into inoculants, physical methods for seed treatment, continuous system, batch system, dust/powder treater, slurry treater, and on-farm/direct treater. Increasing pesticides & fertilizers price, cost of farm-level seed treatment and increasing cycles of crop rotation are some of the critical factors likely to drive market growth. Moreover, easier management of residue, conventional agrochemical application and higher yield of better quality agricultural products are other key drivers of the market. Emergence of new technologies and increasing seed prices promise better agronomic performance and higher yields. Hence, an increasing number of farmers and growers have changed their preference to seed treatment to look after their valued investments. Seed treatment chemicals have lesser or no harmful impact on the consumers, environment and workers as compared to the conventional chemical agents.
