Global Seeds Market to Reach US$ 52.5 Billion by 2032, Propelled by Increasing Food Demand

March 20, 2023 | Agriculture

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "­­Seeds Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2024-2032," the global seeds market size reached US$ 45.2 Billion in 2023. A seed is a mature ovule that contains a tiny undeveloped plant and food reserves. It mainly consists of three components: embryo, endosperm, and seed coat. The embryo is a small plant with a root, stems, and leaves. The endosperm refers to the nutritive tissue of the seed, containing starch, oil, and protein. On the other hand, the seed coat refers to the protective covering that helps seeds remain viable for a long time. A seed plays an important role in the reproduction of plants due to its ability to grow into a new plant under proper environmental conditions, including temperature, moisture, and sunlight. It performs various vital functions, such as providing nourishment to the embryo, dispersing to new locations, and achieving dormancy in adverse weather conditions. Some of the standard seeds extensively used across the world include wheat, rice, corn, and other edible legumes, such as peanuts, lentils, beans, and peas.

Global Seeds Market Trends:

The global seed market is primarily driven by the substantial shift in farming practices and increasing demand for food caused by a growing population, rapid urbanization, and the shortage of available per capita arable land. A rising number of farmers prefer commercially produced enhanced seed varieties over the seeds from the last harvest since they have enhanced nutritional quality and are resistant to disease, thus reducing crop damage and improving crop yield. In addition to this, rising health concerns and consumer awareness about the benefit of regular consumption of fruit and vegetables are fuelling the need for good quality vegetable planting seeds, which is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Moreover, the advent of genetically modified (GM) seeds with more yield and can help farmers enhance the efficiency of their farmlands is presenting remunerative opportunities for the market. Besides this, the introduction of hybrid seeds, which are developed as per the requirements of consumers and farmers in terms of adaptability, nutrition, taste, color, shape, size, cooking quality, yield, and shelf-life, is aiding in market expansion. Furthermore, several governments are encouraging the use of biofuel on account of its environmental benefits, which is propelling the demand for crops like soybean and corn. This, in turn, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 52.5 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 1.6% during 2024-2032.
