Agriculture is the major occupation in the region coupled with the lack of cultivable land due to rapid urbanization is driving the demand for seed treatment. Furthermore, the growing demand for better quality food is another driver of the market growth. China is one of the leading agricultural producers and intends to be 95% self-sufficient on the domestic agricultural production of wheat, rice, and cereals. India is a major global producer of food and dairy products and exporter, particularly of rice, coarse grains, vegetables, fruits, and aquaculture. According to Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES), the wheat imports in India is expected to increase and reach USD 1.5 billion export market of Australia by 2050 considering the development in agriculture industry coupled with growing awareness about the benefits of wheat consumption.

Moreover, ABARES also predicted that the value of Australian agricultural production exceeded USD 60 billion in 2016-2017. Government initiatives such as ‘Agricultural Competitiveness White Paper’ in Australia is likely to fuel the market growth further. Other countries such as Malaysia, Vietnam, and Indonesia are experiencing significant growth in the agricultural sector, which is likely to fuel the market growth during the assessment period. The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development predicts an economic slowdown of agricultural production in Asia due to the high food insecurity, which is likely to drive the demand for seed treatment.

North America accounted for the second largest market. It is the major producer of barley, corn, cotton, oats, peanuts, rice sorghum, soybeans, and wheat in the region. These crops require seed treatment and their excessive production drives the regional market during the forecast period.

The European market is expected to witness significant growth owing to the rising demand for organic and healthy food products in the region. The demand for seed treatment in Latin America is increasing to meet the domestic food needs and to maintain the competitiveness as the region is one of the major exporters of food and agricultural commodities.
