China Forage Seed Market

China Forage Seed Market

Market Insights


The China forage seed market estimated at USD XX million in 2017 is expected to reach USD 1765.2 million by 2022 at a CAGR of 9.86% over the forecasted period.

A majority of the Chinese forage seed market is import-dependent. However, government policies for lesser import of forage seeds are propelling China towards domestic production. The increase in cattle import and calf production in the country and free-trade agreements on cattle import with Australia have boosted the demand for feed, which in turn have increased the China forage seed demand in the country.

Market Dynamics

The China forage seeds market is driven by factors such as growing demand for dairy products, higher livestock production, and increased meat consumption across the country. Proper usage of quality forage seeds improves the quality and yield of animal feed, and in-turn helps in improving animal health and growth. The rise in the cost of forage is another driving factor for the industry. Industrialization of the livestock sector is helping the forage seed industry acquire greater market share. Product opportunity lies in the fact that good forage is responsible for increased milk and meat production in animals. The major restraint in the China forage seed market is the unorganized market structure.

Market Segmentation

By crop type, the market is segmented into legumes, cereals, and grasses. Among forage crops, cereal forage seeds form the largest market segment, with 38% of the market share. Increased demand for poultry products, dairy, and beef products has accelerated the demand for high-quality forage seeds in China.

By product type, the market is segmented into stored forage and fresh forage. The stored forage is further segmented into silage and hay. By animal type, cattle constitute the largest share in the fodder crop consumption, followed by swine. The increased consumption and demand of pork meat in the country has hastened the growth rate of swine fodder. Poultry is the second fastest-growing animal type forage seed in the country, due to the growing demand for poultry products.
