Seeds Market Growth by Emerging Trends, Analysis, & Forecast | Key Players are BASF SE, Bayer AG, Syngenta Group, Corteva Agriscience, DLF, and Groupe Limagrain
Demand for seeds has witnessed steady growth in countries such as China and India. With these countries accounting for the largest population, an ever-increasing demand for food grains also drives the seeds market growth.

The global seed market size is estimated to be valued at USD 63.0 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 86.8 billion by 2026, recording a CAGR of 6.6%. An increase in seed replacement rate, adoption of GM crops, increase in organic farming, the advent of molecular breeding technology in seed, government support, and demand from biofuel and feed manufacturing companies are some of the significant drivers for the market. Technological advancements and innovations in this market introduced hybridization technology and GM crops, which have been gaining importance among farmers, owing to the high yield, and increased pest, drought, and disease tolerance. The US, Brazil, Argentina, China, and India are some of the key markets for seeds, globally.

By type, the seeds market is segmented into conventional and genetically modified. The market for genetically modified seeds is expected to grow at a higher rate, owing to the increased demand from farmers for biotech crops, which have higher levels of productivity and profitability. Genetically modified seeds aid farmers to minimize their agricultural input expenses significantly; for example, agrochemical treatment, while guaranteeing a much more abundant harvest. Genetically modified seeds, also popularly known as transgenic seeds, are used to improve and bring about useful characteristics within seeds such as insect resistance, herbicide tolerance, abiotic stress tolerance, high nutritional quality, high yield/output, disease resistance, and improvement in overall quality of the seed, which helps enhance the quality of the products manufactured using these seeds. Some of the countries that have accepted genetically modified seeds include the US, Argentina, Canada, China, and India for one or more crops.

Based on crop type, the seeds market is segmented into cereals & grains, oilseeds & pulses, fruits & vegetables, and other crop types which include fiber crops and other commercial crops such as tobacco and medicinal plants. Cereals & grains, by crop type, accounted for the largest market share in 2020, owing to factors such as the widespread use of grains as a staple food in many Asian and Southeast Asian countries. In the past few years, countries such as China have emerged as major exporters of grains to meet the requirement of neighboring economies. Crops such as corn are widely utilized in both the food and feed industries. With the rising market for biofuels, crops such as sorghum are also being produced on a large scale. Genetically modified varieties of corn are being adopted in various parts of the world. Developed countries such as the US have their main focus on animal feed, which is driving the adoption of GM corn for use in animal feed. Usage of GM corn as a raw material for the production of ethanol has also led to an increase in demand for biofuel as a renewable source.

Other traits are preferred than herbicide tolerance and insect resistance as farmers prefer multiple stacked traits such as herbicide tolerance, insect resistance, and other traits within a single seed. These traits help the farmer to purchase a single-solution seed to overcome multiple issues such as pests, environmental stresses, diseases, and resistance to weeds. The other traits segment witnessed to gain substantial market growth in the developed markets of North America and South America during the forecast period.
