Global Seed Treatment Market Scope:

Seed treatments are done to save crops from a variety of pests and to ensure uniform stand establishment, and to eradicate seed-borne pathogens. The application of fungicide, insecticide, or a combination of both for seed treatment provides the advantages of prevention of plant diseases, seed rooting, and improved germination. Market Research Future (MRFR) has deemed the growth of the global seed treatment market to be healthy and exhibit positive growth trend over the forecast period of 2022-2030.

Seed Treatment Market size is expected to reach $9.7 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 8.5% from 2022 to 2030

To meet the ever-increasing food demands of the increasing global population, the agriculture industry is looking to maximize yields which generate massive demand for seed treatment. On the backdrop of reducing cultivable land and immense demand for agriculture produce, seed treatment has gained traction in recent years which spurs the growth of the global Seed Treatment Market Research. Deteriorating land quality and changing, unfavorable climatic conditions can also lead to the growth of undesirable fungi spores which might affect crop yields. Seed treatment is also being increasingly adopted due to the incessant need to conserve indigenous breeds and to prevent them from extinction. Also, there is a greater focus on the production of superior quality food grains and vegetables to meet the heightened demand which adds fuel to the growth of the global seed treatment market. Furthermore, augmented health consciousness has resulted in a shift in consumer preference towards the consumption of organic food products which acts as a plus for the growth of the global seed treatment market. Ongoing R&D activities have resulted in key market developments which further accelerates the growth of the market. On the other hand, the growth of the market might be hindered by the low shelf life of treated seeds and the difficulty associated with their disposition.
