Seed treatment expected to grow over 10 percent in five years

A comprehensive report, just released by a leading research firm, projects healthy growth in the United States’ seed treatment market over the next half-decade.

Seed treatment, a crop-protection technique involving the use of biological or chemical ingredients, is expected to grow significantly over the five-year period encompassing 2014 to 2019, in an estimated compound annual growth rate of 10.82 percent, according to a newly released publication from Market Research Reports Inc.

Seed treatment facilitates germination, enhances productivity and protects against infestation and disease. Three different types -- physical, biological and chemical -- are implemented singularly or in combination and used in varying proportions, depending on the particular crop’s needs.

The report, titled “Seed Treatment Market in the APAC Region 2015-2019,” provides a thorough overview of industry-related topics from methodology and treatment options to marketing trends, vendor analysis, revenue and more.

At least twelve major companies play a role in this growing industry niche, including DuPont and Monsanto. The market is divided into segments based on the particular agents used for seed treatment and types of crops.

The Agricultural Policy Advisory Committee (APAC) provides advice and information to the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture and trade representatives; Market Research Reports Inc. is the leading source for research and market data worldwide, focusing on global markets, key industries, leading firms, products and analysis.
