Global Seed Treatment Market Outlook

The global seed treatment market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.9% during the period 2022-2027. Seeds and seedlings are susceptible to several soilborne and foliar pests. Insects and pathogens can damage germinating seeds and young plants. Stressful conditions may trigger pathogens that might damage seeds and lead to losses. Seed treatments offer protection against attacks by insects and pathogens. Methods of seed treatment include fungicidal and insecticidal dressing, hardening, fortification, pelleting, infusion, osmotic priming, fluid drilling, separation of viable seeds. The market is likely to be driven by the need to protect seeds from infestations. North America, Europe and Asia Pacific are likely to be key markets.

 

Global Market Likely to be Driven by Need to Protect Seeds from Various Types of Infestations, and Innovative Solutions

Seed treatment refers to the disinfection of seeds from seed-borne or soil-borne pathogenic organisms and storage insects through the application of fungicide, insecticide, or a combination of both.  Seed treatment also involves exposing seeds to solar energy, immersing them in conditioned water, etc.  Seed treatment is carried out to prevent spread of plant diseases, protect seed from seed rot and seedling blights, improve germination, provide protection from storage insects, and regulate soil insects. Such need to protect seeds from various types of organisms and diseases is likely to drive the global seed treatment market. Types of seed treatment include:

Seed disinfection – Involves eradicating fungal spores within the seed coat, or more deep-rooted tissues.  For greater effectiveness, the fungicidal treatment should penetrate the seed in to kill the fungus that is present.

Seed disinfestation – Involves destroying surface-borne organisms that have tainted, but not infected the seed surface. Chemical dips, soaks, fungicides applied as dust, slurry or liquid are a few successful approaches.

Seed Protection – Seeks to protect the seed and young seedling from organisms in the soil that might otherwise trigger decay of the seed before germination.

Seed treatment must be carried out in the following conditions:

Injured Seeds - A break in the seed coat enables fungi to enter the seed and damage it. Combining and threshing operations also inflict mechanical injury to the seed. Weather or improper storage may also injure the seed.

Diseased seed – Organisms may infest the seed at the time of harvest, or during processing (if processed on contaminated machinery or kept in contaminated warehouses or containers).

Unwanted soil conditions – At times, seeds are planted under adverse soil conditions (such as cold and damp soils, or very dry soils). Such soil conditions may encourage growth and development of particular fungi spores, giving them the opportunity to attack and damage the seeds.

Disease-free seed – Infected seeds may lead to severe economic consequences. Seed treatment offers protection against diseases and soil-borne organisms, enabling weak seeds to germinate and produce seedlings.

 

Innovative Solutions by Leading Companies Expected to Drive Market Growth

The global seed treatment market is expected to be driven by advanced solutions by leading organizations. Companies seek to provide solutions that ensure that growers get access to advanced crop protection products; companies, through their expertise in seed treatment and commitment to innovation, continually seek to expand their activities and create new seed treatment solutions to help farmers overcome the challenges of a dynamic agricultural industry. There is a significant opportunity for expansion in the domain, with considerable scope for market advancement. For example, BASF Seed Solutions offers a wide range of seed treatment innovations to protect and enhance the full genetic potential of the seed. Syngenta Crop Protection Research seeks to invest significantly in soil health and develop innovative products through the organization’s focused research on seed treatment.

Key Questions Answered in the Report

The global seed treatment market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.9% between 2022 and 2027.

The major drivers of the market include the rising awareness regarding innovative agricultural methods, growing demand for forage and fodder crops, increasing growth of high-value crops and rising awareness among farmers about the benefits of seed treatment solution.

The growing need to protect seeds from various types of infestations and rise in need for food security are the key industry trends propelling the market's growth.

The major regions in the industry are North America, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa, Europe, and the Asia Pacific.

The different types of seed treatments in the market are synthetic and biological. Synthetics can further be broken down into fungicides and insecticides, among others, while biological is divided into bio pesticides, bio fertiliser, and bio stimulants.

Based on function, the market is classified into seed protection and seed enhancement.

The different treatment methods in the market are seed coating, seed dressing, and seed pelleting.

Based on the stage of seed treatment, the market is bifurcated into on-farm and off-farm.

The different crop types in the market are cereals, oilseeds, fruits and vegetables, among others.

Seed treatment is important for keeping seeds and seedlings healthy from soil- and seed-borne diseases and insect pests that can hamper crop emergence and growth.

Normally, seed treatments only last 10 to 14 days after planting, with pesticide degradation occurring most quickly in warm and humid weather. When used at the greatest labelled rate, some active substances can protect seedlings for much longer.

The parent plant provides seed in its "raw" state, which is clean and untreated by any chemical, biological, or physical means. Seed undergoes the proper treatment to improve its performance and safeguard it from certain infections that are soil- or seed-borne.

The major players in the industry are Bayer CropScience, Syngenta AG, BASF SE, Corteva, FMC Corporation, Incotec, and Nufarm US, among others.
