Global Rice Seed Market - Growth, Trends and Forecasts 2017-2022 - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--The "Global Rice Seed Market - Growth, Trends and Forecasts 2017 - 2022" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

China is the biggest producer of rice in the world (30% of total production in 2010-11 fiscal year), followed by India (21%), Indonesia (8%), Bangladesh (7%), Vietnam, and Thailand. Currently, the rice seed market accounts for 5-7% of the global seed demand on an annual basis. The rising global seed market and growing use of hybrid seeds, with several technological components and increasing trade activities have driven the rice seed market growth globally. However, varying seed regulatory structures among nations and high competition are placing pressure on the market growth in the trade front.

Rice is the most important food crop in Asia, contributing to 60% of the households calorie consumption; 90% of worlds rice is produced and consumed in the region. Following the introduction of IR-8 rice in 1960s, the rice production in Asia has seen growth on par with the population growth and demand. In the post green revolution period, the rice production growth is attributed to increase in yields, as a result of the new and improved seed varieties. Currently 30-40% of the total seed demand in the region is being met by the organized seed production, while the rest is met by farm-saved seed. South America and Africa are the other two regions involved in the rice seed trade. Farmers in these regions need to be motivated to use quality seeds obtained from the organized seed production, instead of farm-saved seeds.

The worlds rice production and subsequent rice seed demand is projected to rise during the next five years at a static pace. Higher seed demand is expected to be witnessed in the traditional rice growing countries of China and India. With the rice plantations seen rising fractionally, the higher level of production is expected to result in yield improvements by means of better quality seeds. Traded volume of rice seed is projected to grow.
