Commercial seeds are used to reduce soil erosion on cropland; improve the productivity of pasture and grazing lands; and protect, create and restore wetlands. They are widely utilized as animal feed to enhance the volume and quality of crops and hay production, grazing, and cover cropping. Besides this, they find application as a raw material in the production of biodiesel fuels. Presently, the escalating demand for biodiesel fuels due to increasing environmental concerns and stringent fuel emission standards implemented by governing agencies of numerous countries is offering lucrative market opportunities.
Commercial Seeds Market Trends:
The growing global population and consequently declining arable land are increasing food insecurity concerns worldwide. This represents one of the key factors positively influencing the demand for commercial seeds to maximize crop yield. Moreover, governing agencies of numerous countries are supporting the adoption of sustainable farming practices through various incentives, which, in turn, is escalating the demand for organic, non-genetically modified organisms (GMO) commercial seeds. Apart from this, several manufacturers are offering hybrid seeds that have great vigor, uniformity, and yield potential. Additionally, the emerging global energy demand, the escalating need for clean and renewable fuel sources, and the thriving automotive industry are some of the factors catalyzing the demand for biofuel. This, in turn, is bolstering the growth of the market. Furthermore, several leading companies are investing in research and development (R&D) facilities to improve yield, performance, and disease and pest resistance of commercial seeds.
