Seed Industry in India: Market Trends, Structure, Growth, Key Players and Forecast



Seeds have played a major role in the growth of the Indian agriculture sector and represent the basic and most critical input for sustainable farming. During the past five years, the seeds market in India has grown at a CAGR of 12%, nearly twice as fast as the global seeds market. In terms of market volumes, rice, wheat and maize currently account for most of this market. Cotton, however, represents the biggest segment in terms of market values.

Traditionally, farmers in India have used seeds that were saved from the previous year’s harvest. Although, such seeds lose their yield and strength with time, they still account for nearly two thirds of the total seeds market in India. The commercial market for seeds, though comparatively small, is currently experiencing healthy growth rates. The sector consists of both organized and unorganized manufacturers. The organised sector consists of both public and private companies. Public companies currently have a stronger focus on producing high-volume low-cost seeds. On the contrary, private manufacturers, produce low-volume high-cost seeds.
