Global Seed Coating Material Market - Segmented by Ingredients, Application, and Geography - Growth, Trends and Forecasts (2018 - 2023)

Global Seed Coating Material Market - Segmented by Ingredients, Application, and Geography - Growth, Trends and Forecasts (2018 - 2023)

The market for seed coating materials is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period of 2018-2023. Revenue generated by the seed coating materials industry was USD 1053.2 million in 2016.The market is expected to grow at a dynamic pace for the next five years, owing to the increase in demand for high-yielding and healthy seeds. Emerging countries such as China, India, and Brazil are leading the market, given the high importance of agriculture in their economy and the high possibility of growth in agricultural production. Europe and North America are the top two oldest consumer markets for seed coating materials.

Adoption Of New Seed Technologies

The global seed coating materials market is driven by new age requirements of agriculture and allied sectors. Major factors driving the segment are the adoption of new seed technologies (Hybrid and GM), innovative farming technologies in developing worlds, the increased demand for multi-functional products and need for low-risk investments in the farming sector. These driving forces are expected to maintain a steady pace of development in the industry. A major constraint for the seed coating materials sector is the environmental concern over the materials (chemicals) used for seed coating. The untapped potential in India and China, in the Asia-Pacific region, and Brazil, in South America, provide great opportunities for companies to expand.

North America to Dominate the Market Growth

The global seed coating materials market is segmented by type, application, and geography.  By type, the market is segmented into polymers, colorants, and binders. Polymers hold a majority of the market share, followed by colorants and binders.
