The seed technologies such as seed treatment and seed coating have grown with the technological advancement in farming such as the use of farm machinery and commercial seeds in cultivation of crops. To protect high-value planting seeds, farmers have started protecting planting seeds with the treatment of chemicals and also used coating materials to plan crop planting operations in the field.
Seed coating technique was used for the first time in 1930, for coating cereal seeds. The overall performance of plants are affected by the physiological, chemical, and biological characteristics of their seeds, hence it is very crucial for seeds to remain resistant towards the unfavorable environmental conditions to produce good quality yield in a shorter time span. With the expansion of global population, the demand for food is growing rapidly and to fulfill that requirement various crop protection technologies and crop growth-promoting techniques are used by crop growers across the globe.
Seed coating is one of the most effective seed protection methods that is used across several major economies where agriculture is practiced. Rising incidences of seed diseases which is adversely affecting the overall crop growth are leading to increasing demand for seed coating materials to safeguard them from the attack of pests and others harmful microorganisms present in the soil environment.
Key companies operating in the global seed coating materials market are focusing on merger & acquisition activities to increase their global presence along with adopting product innovation and product launch strategies to maintain their global prominence. Bayer CropScience AG, Croda International Plc., and BASF SE are some of the key companies operating in the global seed coating materials market.
Key Market Driver -
Key Market Driver – Rising advancements in seed technology is expected to drive the market growth
Key Market Restraint -
Key Market Restraint – Stringent regulations on the excessive use of chemically synthesized agriculture products may restrain the growth of the market
Rising focus on improving the appearance, nutritive value, and quality of seeds along with safeguarding them from various pest attacks are projected to drive the global seed coating materials market. Seed coating materials of high quality are getting rapid recognition for seed coating across major crop-producing economies to increase crop yield along with enhancing the quality of crops in order to make them commercially desirable.
With the increasing demand for food and other agricultural products across the globe, agricultural investments are also increasing which is expected to contributing to enhancing the size of global seed coating materials market. Rising demand for high-value commercial crops, coupled with escalating number of market players in the seed treatment industry is further predicted to drive the market growth in the forthcoming years.
However, stringent regulations on the use of synthetic chemicals, such as colorants and other seed coating materials, coupled with the growing demand for organic products may restrain the synthetic seed coating materials market during the foreseeable years. Lower awareness about seed coating technology among growers of some developing countries may further act as a restraining factor for the growth of the global seed coating materials market.
Some of the major companies that are present in the global seed coating materials market are Clariant AG, BASF SE, Croda International Plc., Bayer CropScience AG, Chemtura Corporation, Platform Specialty Products Corporation, Precision Laboratories, Incotec Group, and BrettYoung.
The demand for polymers to coat seeds is expected to remain high during the forecast years, and the segment is predicted to generate the major revenue share. The reason attributed to the high adoption of seed coating polymers is their low viscosity and water-based composition that aids in faster seed germination. Higher adoption of two major forms of polymers that are superabsorbent polymer gels and polymer gels in the seed coating to minimize dust from coating, to extend seed’s shelf-life, and to produce high-quality crop yields are some of the significant reasons that are propelling the demand for seed coating polymers across the globe.
The demand for seed coating materials to coat crop seeds of cereals & grains is anticipated to remain high during the foreseeable years, as cereals & grains are widely consumed as staples across the world, and hence their production is required to step up to feed the growing world population. The demand for high-quality seed coating materials to coat and safeguard fruits & vegetables crop seeds is projected to witness a steep rise in the upcoming years due to growing demand for high-value crops such as vegetables and fruits.
North America is projected to be the leading region in terms of revenue share in the global seed coating materials market during the forecast period, owing to high awareness about the benefits of seed coating across major crop-producing economies, such as United States, and Canada. Favorable regulatory scenario associated with coloring seeds after they have been treated in order to proliferate crop yield, coupled with the presence of key market players in North America is expected to further boost the growth of the seed coating materials market in the region.
