The global agricultural biotechnology market was valued at $39,565.6 million in 2020, which is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.7% during the forecast period (2021–2030). The industry is expected to grow due to the rise in the demand for new breeding techniques, such as genomic sciences, plant grafting, genetic engineering, and plant molecular breeding. This is because of the growing use of biotechnology to create or modify traits of organisms-including plants, animals, and microbes-with respect to color, yield, or size.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every industry including agricultural biotechnology market. The pandemic has put a heavy burden on the food processing industry and producers, who are unable to work due to the lockdowns. Following the economic slowdown, biofuel prices collapsed in 2020 and so did the prices of their major feedstocks, such as maize and oilseeds. Despite the fact that the income losses during the lockdown and local supply chain disturbances have inevitably led to a vast food shortage in many industrialized economies, the demand for agricultural products didn’t reduce, owing to the sustained food consumption.
With genome editing, healthier crops can be produced that have an increased resistance to insects and lower risk of failure due to extreme weather conditions, such as floods and drought. Thus, the genome editing category is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period in the agricultural biotechnology market, on the basis of technology.
The transgenic seeds bifurcation, on the basis of product, held the larger market share in 2020 in the agricultural biotechnology industry. This can be mainly ascribed to the increasing focus of market players on developing these seeds to improve the efficiency of farming operations. Additionally, these products help in the reduction in the effect of any external factor destroying the quality of the crop.
Globally, North America held the largest share in the agricultural biotechnology market in 2020. This leading position is majorly attributed to the increasing adoption of GM crops in the region. Moreover, the shortage of conventional fossil fuels has led to the development of biofuels, which, coupled with the regulatory approval for them by statutory bodies in the U.S., is expected to have a positive impact on the market growth. In addition, the several advantages of transgenic crops over normal crops, such as resistance to pests and toxic herbicides and additional nutritional values, are further expected to drive the region’s market during the forecast period.
Biofuel sources mainly include crops such as wheat, corn, soybean, and sugarcane, but organic waste material can also be utilized as a potential feedstock. The increasing demand for biofuels across the world can be attributed to the fact that they burn cleaner than conventional fossil fuels and release fewer pollutants and greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, into the atmosphere. Thus, the developed countries of Europe and North America have been witnessing a rise in the adoption of biofuels, which are mainly produced using biotechnology and offer higher fuel efficiency. Thus, the increasing adoption of biofuels is a key trend in the agricultural biotechnology market.
The increasing population is leading to a rise in the demand for food products and the consequent dependence on agricultural biotechnology. According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, the global population, which stood at 6.9 billion in 2010, increased to 7.7 billion in 2019. Moreover, during 2015–2050, half of the world’s population growth is expected to be concentrated in ten countries, namely Nigeria, China, India, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Pakistan, Ethiopia, the U.S., Tanzania, Indonesia, and Uganda. The growing population would require an ample food supply to sustain, which, in turn, would drive the adoption of advanced biotechnology tools in the agricultural space, thereby supporting the agricultural biotechnology market growth.
