Seed Treatment Market

Seed Treatment Market Segmented By Size,
Share, and Forecast till 2025
Seed treatment involves application of pesticides to seeds for protecting them
from diseases caused due to various organism and insects. Treating seed with
pesticides is important, as it improves health of crops. Major factors driving
growth of the market include low-cost of crop production and less
environmental impact of seed treatment. During the seedling development stage,
crop seeds are exposed to adverse environmental conditions. Seed treatment
reduces the environmental impact of the manufacturing process by reducing the
spray applications of crop protection products and decreasing exposure to
non-target species including pollinators and humans.
According to American Seed Trade Association (ASTA), the exposure of
potential soil surface to pesticides is reduced by around 90% or more as
compared to other application methods such as broadcast sprays or in-furrow
applications. However, although seed treatment is a cost-effective crop
protection technique, it is not efficient if presence of pest is high. Hence, the
low shelf life of the treated seeds and limited protection are major factors
restraining market growth.
Seed treatment is segmented on the basis of crop type in cereals & grains, sugar
beets, alfalfa, oil seeds, sugarcane, and vegetables. Cereals & grains segment is
expected to account for the highest revenue share over the forecast period, due
to its increasing consumption by global population. According to the United
States Food and Agriculture Organization, the global cereal consumption was
38 million tonnes in 2016 and was increased by 1.5% in 2017. Furthermore,
seed treatment is segmented on the basis of applications such as insecticides,
fungicides, herbicides, fertilizers, and bio-control. Herbicides accounted for the
largest revenue share in 2016, owing to its easy application and low cost.
According to Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry,
herbicides accounted for 16% of the total crop protection chemicals market in
Latin America is a dominant region in the global seed treatment market and was
valued at US$ 6,199.6 Mn in 2016. Brazil is a global soybean producer and
around 98% of soybean seeds in Brazil are treated with fungicides and
insecticides. This factor is considered as a major driver for the growth of seed
treatment market in this region.
