Seed Treatment Market Overview
Seed treatment is a process of applying chemical or biological agents to seeds, in order to prevent damage by pathogens, insects, and pests. Seed treatment plays a vital role in sustainable crop production, by providing protection from pre- and post-emergent insects and diseases, across a variety of soil types and environmental conditions. The process of seed treatment establishes uniform growth of crops, enhances nodulation in legume crops and seed germination.
Crops such as wheat, mustard, pulses, and groundnut crops are prone to several seed and soil borne diseases during different growth stages of a seed. These diseases have the ability to cause a negative impact on germination, and cause a heavy reduction in yield, thereby causing hefty losses to farmers. In addition, seed treatment helps protection of above-ground plant parts from infection by airborne pathogens. Seed treatment serves as a solution by reducing the chances of such problems.
On the basis of application method, the global seed treatment market has been categorized into dressing, coating, and pelleting. A significant demand is expected to arise for the dressing application method, during the forecast period (2020–2030), owing to its significantly low cost. In this process, seeds are dressed with either a dry formulation or wet-treated with a slurry or liquid formulation, in an earthen pot, and then spread on a polythene sheet for sprinkling the chemical.
Geographically, the seed treatment market has been categorized into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Latin America (LATAM), and Middle East and Africa (MEA). The market in APAC is expected to account for a significant share throughout the forecast period, owing to a number of agriculture-based economies in the region, including India, China, and several Southeast Asian countries.
Seed Treatment Market Dynamics
Governments across the globe are supporting their agricultural sector, in order to meet the increasing demands of the rising population. In addition, several initiatives have been launched, in order to provide awareness to farmers, regarding crop protection materials, which help in keeping pests and insects at bay, thereby improving the crop yield, by preventing the spread of botanical diseases. Due to these factors, the seed treatment market is projected to grow during the forecast period, particularly in developing nations, such as China, India, Brazil, and Thailand.
Several investments are being made in the research and development (R&D) sector for the innovation of new solutions that can provide improved agricultural yield, along with protection to crops from insects and pests. With the increase in investments, along with the rising concerns regarding the consumption of food infested with pests, the seed treatment market holds a high potential of growth during the forecast period.
