The South Africa seed market size is expected to expand at a high CAGR of 5% during the forecast period, 2021–2028. The growth of the market is attributed to the increased exports of seed in the coming years.

A seed is a matured fertilized ovule of a flowering plant that contains an embryo and is capable of sprouting into a new plant.
Seeds are the beginning point for agricultural output; as a result, during times of crisis, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, seed supply is one of the critical services that must continue to function to maintain current and future production cycles. However, concerns connected to seed transportation, both domestically and internationally, are causing unique concerns for the seed industry due to a reduced number of flights, a low number of drivers, and a long process of essential documents due to a smaller number of workers.

South Africa Seed Market summary

There has been a delay in the delivery of seeds to farmers in the country as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is a major problem because seed production is dependent on allied industries such as labor, transportation, and packaging, all of which have been affected by the lockdown. COVID-19's influence on agriculture and associated industries is still being felt, particularly with small farmers' incapacity to get their goods from fields to markets, both semi-urban and urban, and to get agricultural good inputs in South Africa.

Due to the lack of sufficient quality and quantity of seeds to sow in South Africa, the interruptions created by COVID-19 may result in a fall in agricultural productivity and acreages.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Need for high-quality seeds is increasing as the country's population grows and cultivable land becomes limited is projected to propel the market expansion during the forecast period.
  • Biotechnology is being applied to obtain stress-tolerant and more nutritious crop types, to safeguard natural resources which are expected to spur the market growth in the coming years.
  • Rising local consumption and export of crops and seeds to Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries, as well as the focus of the South African National Seed Organization (SANSOR) on increasing efficient trade within the country and other countries around the world, are key factors boosting the market during the forecast period.
  • High R&D costs for developing high-quality seeds result in high seed prices are expected to impede the market expansion.

South Africa Seed Market Segment Insights

Hybrid seeds segment is projected to account for a key market share

Based on seed types, the South Africa seed market is divided into genetically modified (GM) Seeds, conventional seeds, and hybrid seeds. The hybrid seeds segment is expected to hold a key share of the market during the forecast period owing to the traits of the hybrid seeds are relatively predictable, and the plants in a field are often more uniform. Hybrid lines, in especially, increased yields significantly and had the benefit of letting farmers forecast how much to plant for animal feed or milling. Hybrids are chosen for their ability to increase the properties of the emerging plants, such as yield, uniformity, color, and disease resistance.

The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) states in its GMO literature that the transfer of allergenic genes across crops can trigger dangerous reactions in persons with allergies.

Cereals segment is expected to grow at a significant pace

On the basis of crop types, the market is segmented into pulses, fruits and vegetables, grains and cereals, oilseeds, and others. The cereals segment is expected to constitute a key share of the market in the coming years owing to maize is the primary food, and the country's market accounts for the majority of maize consumption. White maize is mostly used for human consumption, whereas yellow maize is mostly used for animal feed, but some are consumed by humans.

However, the fruits and vegetable segment is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period due to consumers in South Africa are becoming more health-conscious, which has resulted in their spending more money on healthier foods like fruits and vegetables. As production rises, there will be a requirement for high-quality seeds to boost productivity and fulfill consumer demand.
