Global Seed Coating Market to Reach US$ 5.0 Billion by 2032, Impelled by Increasing Demand for Improved Agricultural Productivity

July 10, 2023 | Agriculture

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Seed Coating Market by Additive Type (Polymers, Colorants, Pellets, Binders, Active Ingredients, and Others), Process (Film Coating, Encrusting, Pelleting), Crop Type (Cereals and Grains, Fruits and Vegetables, Flowers and Ornamentals, Oilseeds and Pulses, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” the global seed coating market size reached US$ 2.6 Billion in 2023. Seed coating is a specialized agricultural process where seeds are enveloped in a thin layer of tailored materials, such as polymers, fertilizers, fungicides, insecticides, or beneficial microorganisms. This coating provides protection against environmental stresses and pathogens, enhances germination through growth stimulants, and facilitates nutrient supplementation for early growth. It also allows for precise planting and incorporates disease and pest control measures. The components used in seed coatings vary based on the crop and environmental requirements. Seed coating increases crop establishment, provides disease and pest management, optimizes nutrient availability, and promotes environmental sustainability through targeted pesticide application. It improves seed performance, crop establishment, yield potential, and agricultural ecological stewardship. It is utilized in various agricultural sectors, including conventional farming, organic farming, horticulture, and forestry. Seed coatings are also applied to various crop seeds, including grains, oilseeds, vegetables, fruits, and tree seeds.

Global Seed Coating Market Trends:

The increasing popularity of seed coating due to the increasing population across the globe and the consequent rise in food demand is driving the market growth. The seed coating technology presents a promising solution for farmers and seed companies to enhance agricultural productivity and increase crop yields that helps meet the growing demand and supports efforts to address global food security challenges creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, technological advancements in seed coating like micro emulsion gel (MEG) technology, a gel-based seed coating that contains micro-emulsified active ingredients which involve the application of a thin film of gel onto the surface of the seed, that helps in reducing the rub-off of coating materials during transportation and handling, is positively impacting the market growth. Additionally, the growing awareness of seed coating benefits among farmers and agricultural professionals, including enhanced germination, disease and pest control, nutrient supplementation, and precision planting, for achieving higher crop establishment rates and improved yields, is strengthening the market growth. In addition to this, the growing product popularity in precision agricultural techniques, including precision planting and variable rate application to ensure accurate seed placement and consistent crop emergence, is favoring the market growth. Furthermore, the rising emphasis on sustainable farming practices owing to the increasing environmental concerns is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Other factors, including rapid industrialization, significant growth in the agriculture industry, and rapid technological advancements, are anticipated to drive the market growth. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 5.0 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 7.27% during 2024-2032.
