Rising Concerns Regarding Food Security due to Increasing Global Population will Drive Global Seed Treatment Market

Seed treatment refers to the process of applying biologically active ingredients or certain chemicals to seeds. Done usually before packaging of seed for market distribution, seed treatment procedures coat seeds with insecticides, fungicides or a combination of such substances so that the seeds become resistant to storage and soil borne pathogens. Since a lesser amount of disinfectants is required for seed treatment as compared to the amount used for spraying pesticides directly on standing crops, seed treatment is more effective and also cost efficient. Certain varieties of insecticides also help in improving the level of stress tolerance of plants, making plants more resistant to harsh conditions such as drought and heat.

Issue of Food Security for 7 Billion+ Global Population Remains Key Market Driver


The world today needs the intervention of science and technology to meet the food needs of the rising global population more than ever before. Many regions across the globe are already struggling to bridge the gap between the unprecedented rate of population growth and the diminishing agricultural produce. To ensure proper food supply to the global population, it is necessary that more and better quality food is produced. The accelerating demand for increased and better agricultural produce is the primary factor driving the global market for seed treatment. Technological developments in the field of seed treatment procedures are also driving the global market. However, the concern regarding ill-effects of chemicals present in most pesticides on the environment are hampering market’s growth to a certain extent.


Ill-effects of Pesticides on Environment Propel Market for Nonchemical Seed Treatment Methods


Environmental concerns, which have also prompted many government bodies to lawfully limit the use of pesticides, have in-turn led to the increased popularity of nonchemical seed treatment methods. While the market for bio-based seed treatment methods currently occupies a very small share of the global seed treatment market, it is expected to exhibit a positive CAGR of 9.9% between 2012 and 2018.
