24 November 4:22 a.m., Silicon Valley, California - According to the new market research report, the global market for Biological Seed Treatment is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.3% reach US$2 billion by 2027, driven by owing to their ability to optimize plant growth, minimize stress and boost overall yield. Seed treatment represents an effective mode to deliver biological products due to close proximity of these products to root system from the beginning. Biological seed treatment is used either on their own or in combination with chemicals to achieve improved efficiency and to enhance yield potential. Market growth is being propelled by the increasing use of biological seed treatment for a diverse range of products, including fruits & vegetables, forage, cereals & grains, pulses and oilseed. The global market for biological seed treatments is also anticipated to benefit from a number of factors including increasing global population, sustainability, and cost-effectiveness of these treatments. The exponential increase in global population and the resultant growth in food demand and consumption are expected to propel use of biological seed treatments. The increasing focus on sustainable agricultural practices, the need to reduce the use of harmful chemicals-based pesticides and heavy investment by leading players in research projects for product innovations are slated to bolster market growth. The introduction of new combination products and emerging markets are slated to present new growth opportunities over the coming years. Biological seed treatments intended to offer bacterial resistance are poised to gain significant demand and be the primary treatment type within the market. With growing acceptance of the commercial seed industry across the globe, the shift in demand from farm-saved and open-hybrid seed varieties towards commercialized seeds is expected to open up new growth pockets.

Growth in the global biological seed treatment market is significantly impacted by the increasing adoption of sustainable agricultural practices, and the steady rise in R&D investments into development of novel biological seed treatments. Product development efforts in biological seed treatments are aimed at achieving improved crop efficiency in the early seedling stages. Biological seed treatment products currently available are not only designed to offer protection to the seeds but also act as seed enhancers, which in turn is vital for improving overall crop yield. Some of the earlier biological seed treatment products were mainly intended for controlling specific types of soil pathogens that affected performance of the seed. The scenario has changed considerably over the years with current products found to be highly complex in nature in terms of formulations and active ingredients, which ensure protection against a wide range of diseases, insects and nematodes. Reduction in biotic and abiotic stresses experienced by crops is expected to play a critical role in improving seed vitality, enhancing nutrient uptake and increase stress tolerance, all of which further aid in improving plant emergence, efficiency of nutrient utilization and foliar growth. Such factors are critical for assuring high crop yield, and often considered as insurance to investments that farmers make on various seeds.Bioencapsulation technologies are also providing significant opportunity for the biological seed treatment market. R&D in agriculture industry has been focusing on producing inoculants that could lead to formulations to improve product viability and ease application. Traditional formulations tend to face significant issues due to low viability of microorganisms in the application process and during storage. The issue can be resolved through immobilization of microorganisms, which can improve formulation's efficacy and enhance shelf-life, ensuring that the formulation remains viable for a longer time period. Bioencapsulation technologies can also improve application efficacy by enabling controlled microbial release. The technologies can also help in enhancing persistence of biological seed treatment in soil, thus ensuring their higher adoption.

Microbials are forecast to capture dominant market share and witness fastest growth during analysis period. The rising adoption of microbial-based biological seed treatment products for row crops is a key factor driving majority of growth in the global biological seed treatment market. Many traditional biopesticide manufacturers and global crop protection companies are investing heavily in research and development of innovative microbial solutions, which bodes well for global biological seed treatment market. The extensive use of microbial inoculants in agriculture shed focus on biological seed treatments based on microbial solutions. With growth in knowledge of soil micro biome, the widespread use of microbial farming techniques in conventional agriculture paved the way for development of microbial seed treatments. Microbial based biological seed treatments can increase yields while reducing fertilizer and pesticide applications. Seeds treated with microbes also enrich carbon starved soils, provide drought resistance and increased heat tolerance capacity; and improved resistance to weeds, pests, insects and plant diseases.
