The global biological seed treatment market size is anticipated to expand at substantial CAGR during the forecast period, between 2021 and 2028. Seed treatment broadly refers to the application of fungicide, insecticide, and pesticides to the seeds to disinfect them from pathogenic organisms. The removal of seed-borne or soil-borne bacterial organisms can also be done using either making the seeds to solar energy exposure or immersion in conditioned water. The treatment is a vital step for providing the best quality seed as it helps in the prevention of plant from diseases, protection from seed rot, and save and secure storage process. The most commonly used technique for seed treatment include seed enhancement and seed protection.

Biological Seed Treatment Market Segment Insights:

Microbial segment is projected to hold significant market share

In the terms of types, the market is bifurcated into microbial and botanicals. The microbial segment is further divided into bacteria and fungi. The microbial segment is projected to hold significant market share during the forecast period owing to the rising demand for microbial seed treatments for field crops such as soybean and corn. However, the botanicals segment is anticipated to grow at a considerable rate in the coming years due to the growing demand for bio-stimulant and nutrient-based seed treatments.


Global Biological Seed Treatment Market types

Soybean segment is expected to exhibit at a substantial growth rate

Based on crops types, the biological seed treatment market is segregated into corn, wheat, soybean, cotton, sunflower, vegetable crops, and others. The soybean segment constituted a significant market share in 2020 and is expected to exhibit at a substantial growth rate during the forecast period. The segment growth is due to the availability of exposure to nitrogen for growth and development, which is supplied through biological fixation by seed inoculants. The bio-nematicide seed treatment aids in the protection of the roots from soybean cyst nematode (SCN) feeding and inhibits the nerve transmission by creating a protective barrier around the roots to repel nematodes.

Biofungicides segment is expected to grow during the forecast period

On the basis of functions, the market is bifurcated into seed protection and seed enhancement. The seed protection segment is further categorized as bioinsecticides, biofungicides, and others, while the seed enhancement segment is further bifurcated into biofertilizers and biostimulants. The biofungicides segment is projected to register a healthy growth rate during the forecast period due to the increasing demand for seed coating to avoid the fungal attack. Fungi generally causes black rot of seeding that can substantially reduce the healthy growth rate of seeds; so, seed coating is a key process that can protect from the damage caused by the fungal pathogens.  Biofungicides contain several active ingredients such as gliocladium virens, coniothyrium minitans, bacillus pumilus, and paecilomyces lilacinus, which act as key agents for effective controlling and removing fungal diseases.

North America is anticipated to dominate the market

In terms of regions, the market is classified into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America is anticipated to dominate the market during the projected timeline owing to the growing demand for organic food and increasing number of organic crop producers in the region. The market in Asia Pacific, however, is projected to expand at a significant CAGR during the forecast period due to the strong growth of agriculture sector in the region. Moreover, the rising awareness among a large number of the farmers has resulted in growing demand for seed coating, which presents a key aspect for the regional market expansion.
