Crop production majorly depends on the quality of seeds used while cultivation. Although seeds are relatively low-cost products, all other phases of crop cultivation depend on the quality of seed. A good quality seed allows sustainable farming and ensures for profitable products for manufactures. Growing emphasis of commercial seeds in the agriculture industry and increased efforts to develop efficient-produce seeds are boosting the Global Commercial Seeds Market.
The Global Commercial Seeds Market was consolidated in nature, as few companies together accounted for the majority of the global market share. Furthermore, an increase in merger and acquisitions among leading companies have added consolidation to the nature of this market. Recent strategies adopted by key market players such as Bayer-Monsanto, ChemChina-Syngenta, and DowDupont have had a major impact on the global commercial seeds market, thereby creating a healthy market competition.
The United Nations forecasts the global population to cross 10 billion by 2050, which is expected to bode well for the Global Commercial Seed Market. The rising population will increase the demand for food, finds Fortune Business Insights in a new study. The study is titled “Commercial Seed Treatment Market: Global Market Analysis, Insights, and Forecasts, 2018 – 2025.” According to the study, the global commercial seed treatment market will be worth US$ 61.32 Bn by 2025 from US$ 40.70 Bn in 2017, with a promising CAGR of 5.8%.

The rising industrialization is reducing arable land in emerging nations thus adversely impacting the production of crops. However, with government support and increasing awareness about modern farming techniques, it is possible for farmers to increase their crop yield. Such initiatives taken by governments are driving the global commercial seed market. Additionally, crop producers are getting increasing subsidies in order to promote commercial seed production, subsequently ensuring a smooth production cycle and seamless crop management. A smooth supply-demand balance ratio is maintained by low initial cost for crop production and this will propel the market to grow exponentially in the coming years.
Another major factor fueling the demand for commercial seeds is that farmers are encouraged to use biotech or hybrid crops for better crop production. This was possible because of various initiatives conducted to spreads awareness among farmers on the modern ways of improving crop yield. Crop cultivated using advanced technologies are both insect and abiotic stress tolerant. The rising adoption of innovative farming practices will pave the way for the growth of the global commercial seed market.
Increasing Use of High-yielding Crops to Increase Demand for Commercial Seeds
The rising disposable income of people is expected to result in increasing and unbridled consumption of resources. This will further fuel demand for commercial seeds for improving crop yield as compared to their farm seed counterparts. With the advancement of molecular biology, mapping of the genetic codes of plants has become faster and cheaper. These advancements are likely to boost commercial seed production.
On the flip side, low margins set for major industrial crops such as guar, fiber hemp, cuphea, Plantago, sunflower, sugar beet, safflower, potato, rapeseed, maize, jojoba, cassava, oil palm, and peas may create challenge for the commercial seed market to generate more market revenues.
Again government regulations set for trading specific crops may also hamper the commercial seed market. This, accompanied with the existing ban imposed on neonicotinoids, may hamper commercial seed production during the forecast period. Nevertheless, the rising application of high yielding value crops is likely to bode well for the global commercial seed market.
