Global Seed Market is valued approximately at USD 63.0 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 8.2% over the forecast period 2022-2029. A seed is a fully developed, fertilised ovule from a flowering plant that normally contains an embryo and can germinate to produce a new plant. . The Seed market is expanding because of factors such as growth in the usage of commercial seeds, high adoption of biotech crops and increase in the demand from the biofuel sector.

According to an OECD-FAO research, 49% of the world's food needs will still be met by grains by 2050. . Global cereal consumption is anticipated to rise from 2.6 billion metric tons in 2018 to 2.9 billion metric tons in 2027. Another important component driving the market is rising demand for healthy and organic processed products and public-private partnerships in varietal development. The market would be primarily driven by increasing demand for cereals, oils, and vegetables, demand for biotech crops, and a decline in per capita cropland. HYVs and hybrid varieties can help farmers meet the demand to produce more from the limited amount of arable land available per person in order to receive higher returns. Farmers have been encouraged by this tendency to turn away from traditional seed sources in favor of packaged seeds that promise higher yields. However, impact of climate change on crop production and price fluctuations in oilseeds stifles market growth throughout the forecast period of 2022-2029.

The key regions considered for the Global Seed Market study includes Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and Rest of the World. Asia Pacific dominated the space in terms of revenue, owing to rising seed replacement rates and greater hybrid acceptance in important crops like rice, maize, and vegetables. Hybrid rice's growth prospects in the area are still quite promising. Furthermore, Europe is expected to hold the fastest share owing to rising consumption of agriculture produce, vegetables and more.
