Global Sports Turf Seed Market - Segmented by Type, Application, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)

The global sports turf seed market was valued around USD 836.7 million in 2015 and is expected to increase further over the forecast period, witnessing a CAGR of 10.2% during 2018-2023. World trade of sports turf grass seed revolves around five major players. The US is by far the largest producer and exporter of sports grass seed in the world. The country is followed by the EU15 as a whole, then Canada and New Zealand. The other nations of significance are Argentina and the Czech Republic.

Development of Better Varieties Act as a Driver

There are increased number of researches going on for the development of drought-tolerant and other types of turf around the world. For instance, the Grass Traits and Varieties (GTV) program represents research on a wide breadth of target traits for grass cultivars in the United Kingdom.

Rising Cost of Growing Turf Acts as a Restraint

Plant breeding (crossing, selecting, and conducting trials) typically takes a decade or more, before varieties are ready for government registration, industry performance trials, and release into the market. Subsequent investment in production, stockholding, manufacturing, and marketing is also expensive. Increasing competition from artificial turf is the major factor constraining the market.

North America is one of the Largest Markets

North America is the dominant region, due to the strong demand in the US. The most important cold season turf grasses are Kentucky Bluegrass, Tall Fescue, and Ryegrass. Zoysia, Bermuda grass, and St. Augustine are the chief sub-type in warm season turf grass. Kentucky Bluegrass is mainly cultivated in the United States and has the most demand. The demand for seed varieties is relatively high for Bermuda grass.

Major Players: SYNGENTA, DUPONT PIONEER, MONSANTO, RAGT, PRO HARVEST, GROUPE LIMAGRAIN, AND NORTHERN STAR, among others.
