The global seed treatment market reached a value of US$ 6.7 Billion in 2020. The treatment of seeds involves the application of chemical or organic agents for improving the quality and providing protection to the grain. Eco-friendly pesticides and fungicides that prevent pathogens and rodents from damaging the crop are widely used in the process of seed treatment. These pesticides and fungicides are used in different concentrations according to the requirements of the crop or the soil. The treatment process involves various stages such as exposing the seeds to the sun, immersing them in nutrient-rich water, coating, priming, phytosanitary treatment, pelleting, and microbial inoculation.
With the rapidly increasing global population, there has been a significant rise in the demand for food grains, which calls for the production of higher and enhanced yields. Furthermore, effective seed treatment prevents seed and soil-borne infections, aids in improving the germination time and enhances the overall productivity. It also averts the ill-effects of agrochemical residues in the crop, thus aptly meeting the soaring demand for chemical-free foods. Moreover, extensive research and development in bio-farming techniques coupled with the production of energy-efficient, environment-friendly and economical means of seed treatment have also catalyzed the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global seed treatment market to exhibit strong growth during the forecast period (2021-2026).
