Seed Coating Materials Market Scenario  

Seed Coating Materials Market is expected to garner a revenue of USD 2 billion by 2024, with a CAGR of approximately 7.2% during the forecast period, 2019–2024. Adoption of advanced farming technologies is amongst the major factors responsible for the surging demand for coated seeds. Coated seeds offer increased performance as compared to uncoated seeds, thus gaining demand in the global agriculture industry. Owing to these determinants, the seed coating materials market is expected to register an impressive growth rate during the forecast period. However, the implementation of stringent government regulations regarding coated seeds, especially in Europe, is hampering market growth. Market players are witnessing several challenges in their growth, such as the lack of awareness among farmers of the developing nations, regarding the benefits of coated seeds, and increasing commercialization and acceptance of genetically modified seeds. To overcome these challenges, market players are focusing on their R&D activities to launch natural and organic seed coating materials. Additionally, manufacturers of seed coating materials are also focusing on expansion, mergers & acquisitions, and partnerships to strive in such a competitive market.
