Wheat Seed Treatment Market Size & Growth 2021-2026:

The wheat seed treatment market is predicted to increase at a CAGR of 12.1 percent from $ 6.4 billion in 2021 to $ 11.3 billion in 2026. Due to the increase in wheat trade, due to the underlying increase in demand and the emergence of pests and diseases, there is a need to improve wheat yields, resulting in the larger use of seed treatment in wheat seed, thus driving the global wheat seed treatment market. With the increase in new developments in seed treatments, several innovative product developments could enter the market over the next five years on a global level.

Seed treatment is the practice of coating seeds with crop protection chemicals, primarily fungicides, and insecticides. Seeds sold in the market are processed in-house by seed companies and supplied to farmers or farmers who perform seed treatment on the farm. Wheat is a crop with low commercial use of hybrid seeds; hence the majority of wheat seed treatment occurs in the farmers' fields. Seed treatment is increasingly viewed by farmers as a way to protect investments in good quality seeds due to growing regulatory issues related to the spraying and foliar application of pesticides.

Crop productivity is primarily determined by climatic conditions, as ideal temperatures and precipitation are expected to be within the growing range of wheat. In addition to climatic conditions, and increased infestation of pests and diseases has resulted in severe crop losses in wheat-growing areas. Therefore, considering the high cost of seed quality, farmers are increasingly practicing seed treatment to protect crops from adverse conditions. This is driving the growth of the global wheat seed treatment market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Wheat Seed Treatment Market:

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a minor influence on the global wheat seed treatment market, owing to shipping constraints. The government has exempted the impact of blockages or outages for all types of farming activities, so there was no such effect from the corona outbreak. In fact, agrochemicals companies made double-digit profits from last year, due to the panic buying behavior of farmers. The companies had sufficient stocks so that the farmers could purchase the seed treatment products as needed.

Recent Developments:

In 2021, BASF SE presented its new brand of hybrid wheat seeds, Ideltis. BASF's hybrid wheat is intended to provide farmers with a higher yield and more stable yield and quality to promote one of the most important crops in the world.

Drivers and Restraints:

Market Drivers:

The global wheat seed treatment market has had tremendous success in terms of seed coating product development and reaching early-stage sowing cultivation efficiency. These seed treatment treatments now help to safeguard seeds and act as seed enhancers, resulting in higher agricultural yields. The early seed treatment's primary goals were to reduce certain soil diseases that impair seed yield. In addition, advances in formulations and active ingredients have resulted in seed treatments that provide a broad range of insect, disease, and nematode protection using a combination of insecticides, fungicides, and inoculants. To make a profit, producers limited the adoption of good agricultural practices, such as controlled application of pesticides at dose limits and crop rotation.

Market Restraints:

The main challenge faced by the wheat seed treatment market is the Limited shelf life of the treated seed. Seed treatments can only protect seeds and plants during plant growth and establishment from moderate to weak insect attacks for a limited duration of time. Due to the limited shelf life of treated seeds, germination and seed vigor is relatively reduced, especially in seeds such as soybeans. The survival of microbes is affected by the physical and chemical properties of their formulation. Maintaining the viability of coated microbes on seeds can be difficult and therefore shorten their shelf life.

Market Segmentation:

Wheat Seed Treatment Market by type:

The global wheat seed treatment market is divided into Chemical seed treatment and biological seed treatment, Chemical seed treatment is expected to dominate the Global Wheat Seed Treatment market during the forecast period. Due to its efficacy, availability, and simpler administration techniques, chemical seed treatment demonstrates higher popularity for farmers. Manufacturers of pesticides assisted to mold seed processors into chemical mixes.

Wheat Seed Treatment Market By Application:

The global wheat seed treatment market is divided into Coating, Dressing and pelleting. Dressing is the most widespread method used and can be performed by both industries and individual farmers.

Wheat Seed Treatment Market By Function:

The global wheat seed treatment market is divided into Seed protection and seed enhancement. the seed protection sector of the global wheat seed treatment market is predicted to be the largest sector during the forecast period. Seed treatment fungicides are also used to protect crops against seed and soil-borne pathogens, particularly Rhizoctonia spp. and Fusarium spp. The ability of seeds to resist pests has enabled farmers to increase the production of their crops.

Wheat Seed Treatment Market By crop type:

The global wheat seed treatment market is divided into Cereals & Grains, Oilseeds, Fruits & Vegetables, Others. The grains and pulses segment are the fastest-growing segment in the global wheat seed treatment market. The predominance of the grains and grains segment is attributed to the increasing consumption of agrochemicals for these crops, especially in countries in Asia and North America. Developed countries like the United States are focusing on animal feed and the use of improved conventional technologies, such as hybrids, and biotechnology applications are expected to increase dramatically. The trend in the consumption of grains and pulses is more global, as it is considered a staple food in most countries, and this trend is expected to continue in the years to come.

Regional analysis:

  • In the Asia Pacific, Factors driving the Wheat Seed Treatment market growth are growing agricultural practices and requirements for quality agricultural products.
  • The North American market is expected to account for the greatest market share, Because of the commercialization of pesticides in the region.
  • Europe contributes to 30% of the Global Wheat Seed Treatment market as many companies are present in the region and new developments take place.
  • The Latin American market is also growing at a high pace and is likely to outpace the North American markets.
  • The Middle-East and Africa Wheat Seed Treatment Market is expected to grow at an annual rate of 9.33 percent during the forecast period.
