Seeds Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023

$ 1799




Seeds are embryonic plants covered in a protective coating which function as the unit of reproduction for the parent plant. They provide food for a number of animal species, and form a basic part of the agricultural process. Over the past several decades, the significance of seeds in the agriculture industry has increased rapidly on account of advancements in technology and the subsequent introduction of enhanced seed varieties. According to IMARC Group’s latest report, titled, “Seed Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, the global seeds market reached a value of more than US$ 62.1 Billion in 2017, exhibiting a CAGR of around 7% during 2010 – 2017.

One of the major trends which has influenced the seeds market is the significant shift in farming practices worldwide. Nowadays, an increasing number of farmers buy commercially produced enhanced seed varieties as opposed to using seeds from the last harvest. This has been a result of the various advantages offered by enhanced varieties of seeds such as high yield, improved nutritional quality, reduced crop damage, disease resistance, etc. Moreover, the increasing global population and the consequent rise in demand for food, coupled with the expanding biofuel production have also stimulated the demand for enhanced seed varieties worldwide. Owing to these factors, the global seeds market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 6% during 2018 – 2023, reaching a value of more than US$ 86 Billion by 2023.
