Global Biological Seed Treatment Market Size to Reach USD 3.49 Billion in 2032 | Emergen Research


Rising demand for chemical free crops is a major factor driving Biological Seed Treatment market revenue growth

Vancouver, Oct. 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global biological seed treatment market size is expected to reach USD 3.49 Billion in 2032 and register a steady revenue CAGR of 11.3% during the forecast period, according to the latest analysis by Emergen Research. Increasing awareness regarding environmental and health impacts among individuals is a key factor driving market revenue growth. Biological seed treatment utilizes living creatures and natural ingredients, such as fungi and bacteria, as well as plant-derived substances or extracts, to treat seeds. Biological seed treatment decreases the usage of agrochemicals, reducing grower exposure to chemicals and their environmental impact. This treatment can be applied as a powder or a liquid, with the goal of spreading an equal coat on the seed’s surface, which increases crop yields, while also assisting plants in fighting off plant diseases and reducing biotic stress.

In addition, increasing inclination toward organic farming practices is another key factor driving revenue growth of the market. For instance, on 5 May 2022, UPL Ltd. announced the acquisition of OptiCHOS, a naturally derived fungicide, for its Natural Plant Protection (NPP) business segment by UPL Group. Natural and biologically generated agricultural inputs and technology were included in the NPP portfolio.  OptiCHOS provides farmers with an innovative, low-risk, residue-free, and bio-degradable broad-spectrum disease management product with minimal environmental and human impact. However, effectiveness of biological seed treatments may differ depending on environmental conditions, such as temperature, humidity, and soil types, which could restrain market revenue growth.

Some Key Highlights From the Report

  • The microbial segment accounted for largest revenue share in the global biological seed treatment market in 2022. This is due to rising demand for microbial pesticide organisms as these are harmless and nonpathogenic to wildlife, people, and other species that are not closely related to the target pest. Microbial toxins are biological toxins created by microorganisms such as bacteria or fungi. In addition, microbial insecticides can be applied even when a crop is nearly ready for harvest because their residues present pose no risk to people or other animals.
  • The online sales segment is expected to register steadily fast revenue growth rate in the global biological seed treatment market during the forecast period attributed to online sales, which makes it easier for farmers in remote or rural areas to access a wide range of biological seed treatment products that may not be available locally. Through online sales there are no additional costs as products can be shipped directly from sellers. In addition, individuals are turning to e-commerce websites to purchase from a large selection of options and take advantage of advantageous offers and discounts to avoid the inconvenience of physical shopping, hence driving revenue growth of this segment.
  • The farmers segment is expected to account for significantly large revenue share in the global biological seed treatment market due to rising demand for biological seed treatment among farmers to protect seeds and crops from pests, pathogens, and nematodes. This treatment increases crop yields while also assisting plants in fighting off plant diseases and reducing biotic stress. Furthermore, seed treatment increases the availability and uptake of plant nutrients in the root system, hence driving revenue growth of this segment.
  • The North America market accounted for largest revenue share in the global biological seed treatment market in 2022. This is attributed to increasing awareness regarding environmental and health impact among individuals in countries such as the U.S. and Canada. In addition, rising demand for biological seed treatments, as this treatment helps to reduce the need for synthetic chemicals in agriculture, is also expected to drive market revenue growth of this region during the forecast period.
