Genetically modified seed companies profiled in this market include Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta, Dow, and Bayer are among the major suppliers of genetically modified seed.

On the basis of its comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that the corn seed is expected to remain the largest segment due to increase in demand of bio-fuels, growth in demand of food and feed, and increase ethanol production. Lucintel predicts that the demand for soybean is likely to experience the highest growth in the forecast period supported by increasing demand for soybean oil, oleo-chemicals, and livestock feed.

Within the global genetically modified seed market, the herbicide tolerance segment is expected to remain the largest market by trait type because it offers flexibility to use herbicides, fight against unwanted weeds, and lowers the cost of herbicides used in agriculture. These properties of herbicide tolerance have presented sound opportunities for genetically modified seed in the corn and soybean segment, which will spur growth for this segment over the forecast period.

North America is expected to remain the largest region due to an increase in the population and food requirements, growth in the demand of bio-fuels and oleo-chemicals, and an increase in the demand for livestock feed.
