Report Overview

Global Biological Seed Treatment Market is flourishing owing to the preference for organic food products, increased interest in bioengineered foods due to their high nutrient content, and rising costs of premium seeds all contribute to the market's expansion.

Global Biological Seed Treatment Market - Industry Trends & Forecast Report 2028

Global Biological Seed Treatment Market was worth USD 973.5 million in 2021 and is further projected to reach USD 2348.1 million by the year 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 13.80% during the forecast period (2022-2028). The market is growing with rising adoption of sustainable farming methods as well as significant investments made in product development and research by key market participants. The main drivers of this market's expansion globally are the agricultural and environmental advantages linked to these biological seed treatment technologies. It is anticipated that helpful microbes and plant extracts would play a significant role in reducing the need for synthetic fertilizers and chemical pesticides, lowering farmers' investments and environmental dangers.

Biological Seed Treatment Market

Biological Seed Treatment - Overview

The application of fungicide, insecticide or a mixture of both to seeds to disinfect and disinfect them from seed-borne or soil-borne pathogenic organisms and storage insects is referred to as seed treatment. It also refers to exposing seeds to solar light, immersing them in conditioned water, and so on. The active substances in biological seed treatment can be microbes like bacteria and fungi as well as plant and algal extracts. The seed is treated with liquid or powdered biological agents. The entire seed is covered by a uniform coating. To protect seeds and enhance the development of wholesome crops, biological, physical, and chemical agents and procedures are applied to seeds as seed treatments.

Global Biological Seed Treatment Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Concerns about the Environment related to Chemical Seed Treatment

Because of the high level of knowledge of their potential and the growing focus on the environmental and health dangers linked to conventional chemicals, there is a major growth in the market for biological seed treatment. Chemical seed treatments harm the environment and put pollinators at considerable risk. The insecticide class known as neonicotinoids is thought to be extremely hazardous to honeybees. Compared to synthetic chemicals, microorganisms used as active ingredients in pest management are known to be typically safe for the environment and non-target species. All these factors boost the growth of the Global Biological Seed Treatment Market during the forecast period (2022-2028).

Bio-Priming Procedures are Used to Boost Efficacy

Bio-priming is a biological seed treatment procedure that involves hydrating the seed and inoculating it with bacteria. Most microbial inoculants, such as plant growth-promoting rhizo-microorganisms (bacteria or fungus), are used to bio-prime seeds. It is an ecological method that uses chosen microbes to promote plant growth by creating plant growth-promoting chemicals, increasing nutrient intake, or protecting seedlings/plants from soil-/seed-borne plant pathogenic organisms. The usage of such procedures is increasing since the chemicals used for seed treatment are largely contact fungicides that cannot protect plants against foliar diseases during the latter phases of crop growth.

Restraints

Governmental Restrictions

Different nations and regions have different regulatory environments for active biological ingredients. Generally speaking, professionals from all over the world agree that biological seed treatment solutions are superior to chemical plant protection goods but still advantageous. Furthermore, despite this acknowledgment, regulatory obligations and assessment procedures have not always been approached consistently. In some nations, biologicals must be registered by specific laws or they could be registered similarly to chemical plant protection products. Sometimes there are fewer data requirements, and other times there might not even be a clearly defined registration process.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Biological Seed Treatment Market

Nonetheless, after the first lockdown, production action was permitted for critical commodities containing agrochemicals, particularly seed treatment pesticides, which are recognized as essential goods in many countries. As a result, the impact of COVID-19 on the market under consideration is expected to be brief. Farmers' panic buying has resulted in double-digit earnings for agrochemical companies compared to the previous year. The breakout of the COVID-19 pandemic has had a substantial impact on worldwide market growth due to interruption in the supply chain as a result of vehicle movement restrictions and lockdown. Prices for agricultural supplies such as insecticides and fertilizers have risen by 10% to 12% as a result of market closures.

Global Biological Seed Treatment Market - By Type

Based on the type, the Global Biological Seed Treatment Market is segmented into Microbials and Botanicals. Because of the increased demand for microbial seed treatments in field crops such as soybean and corn, the microbial industry dominates the market. Many major corporations, including Bayer AG (Germany), Syngenta Group (Switzerland), and Corteva Agriscience (US), provide new biological seed treatment solutions for treating seed and soil-borne diseases in a variety of crops. Government subsidies, the increasing need to improve and protect food production, and rising awareness of biological seed treatment are all contributing to this region's exponential expansion.

Biological Seed Treatment Market Share

Global Biological Seed Treatment Market – By Crop

Based on crop, the Global Biological Seed Treatment Market is segmented into Corn, Wheat, Soybean, Cotton, Sunflower, and Vegetable Crops. For growth and development, the soybean crop needs a lot of exposure to nitrogen, which can be provided by biological fixation by seed inoculants. As a result, it is anticipated that the market for biological seed treatment in soybeans would expand at the quickest rate over the projection period. By parasitizing the nematode, preventing nerve transmission, or erecting a barrier around the roots to deter nematodes, bio-nematicide seed treatments assist in protecting the roots from soybean cyst nematode (SCN) feeding. All these factors boost the growth of the Global Biological Seed Treatment Market during the forecast period (2022-2028).

Global Biological Seed Treatment Market - By Region

Geographically, the Global Biological Seed Treatment Market is segmented into North America, Europe, The Asia Pacific, Latin America, The Middle East and Africa. The market is expanding as a result of the region of North America's rising demand for diverse crops. The growing agricultural practices and need for high-quality agricultural produce are expected to fuel the expansion of the biological seed treatment market in this region. The prohibition on key active components imposed by developed countries' governments is one of the major factors driving the growth of this market in the North American area. As a result, North America is expected to be the world's fastest-growing area. Key players' R&D efforts in the development of biological seed treatment and the installation of new production capacity are expected to fuel market expansion over the next five years.

Competitive Landscape

The leading market players in the Global Biological Seed Treatment Market are BASF SE, Bayer AG, Novozymes A/S, Syngenta Group, Corteva Agrisciences, Valent Biosciences, Verdesian Life Sciences, Plant Health Care, Precision Laboratories, Koppert Biological Systems, and other prominent players.

 

The Global Biological Seed Treatment Market is highly fragmented with the presence of several manufacturing companies in the country. The market leaders retain their supremacy by spending on research and development, incorporating cutting-edge technology into their goods, and releasing upgraded items for customers. Various tactics, including strategic alliances, agreements, mergers, and partnerships, are used.

 

Recent Development

  • In December 2020, Kopper Biological Systems (Netharlands) acquired Geocom, which is headquartered in Lençóis Paulista, São Paulo, Brazil. Geocom operates in the field of agricultural technology and is a pioneer in image geoprocessing and the first to develop an exclusive technology for the application of biological agents via drones in Brazil. The goal of the company is to increase the precision of agri-farming, which is crucial for offering biologicals to the fields.
