Seed Market Recent Developments 2025

Seed Market was worth $76.44billion in 2020 and estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 9.20%, to reach $118.7 billion by 2025.

The Seed Market is developing at a significant rate due to the rising demand for food and feed and rapid decline in arable land. High yielding cultivars/seeds along with other agricultural inputs such as crop protection products, fertilizers, and irrigation are being used to attain optimum utilization in the agriculture sector.

Farmers count on the seed industry to provide seeds that bring high yields and help reduce the cost of production. The global concerns about pollution are driving the increase in the use of biofuels. Biofuel offers various advantages when compared to fossil fuels in terms of reducing pollution, which is one of the primary reasons of governments taking up initiatives to produce biodiesel.

The growth of the Global Seed Market is mainly driven by factors such as rising global population, increasing consumption of animal fodder, and growing need for commodities such as vegetable oil. Increasing awareness among farmers about the benefits of high-quality seed is also helping to boost the market for good seeds. Another major factor driving this market is the growing demand for biofuels, which in turn is exerting pressure on the agriculture sector to increase the production of crops such as Corn. Concerns over Genetically Modified Seeds are restraining the growth of the market. The seed market is hindered as the GM seeds are relatively more expensive than normal seeds in developing countries like India.
