“European Corn/Maize Seed Treatment Market - Growth, Trends And Forecasts (2014-2020)”
The European market for seed treatment in corn/maize is estimated at US$159.9 million in 2014 and is further forecast to record a CAGR of 6.1% between 2013 and 2020. France is and would remain the largest market for seed treatment in corn/maize, with Germany primed to record the fastest 2014-2020 CAGR of 6.5%.
The value of the EU's seed market is estimated at US$9.1 billion in 2012, standing at third place behind the US and China. In terms of production, the EU's seed market is dominated by small grain cereals, covering an area of about 1.2 million hectares in 2013 and an output of over 4.1 million tons in 2012. Following small grain cereals are grasses/forage species with an area of 308 thousand hectares, maize with 196.1 thousand hectares, oilseeds with 134.9 thousand hectares, potatoes with 10.7 thousand hectares and pulses with an area of 60 thousand hectares in 2012. France forms the largest producer of seeds, with an area of 335.2 thousand hectares, and is followed by Germany with 195.4 thousand hectares and Italy with 185.6 thousand hectares.
The market for seed treatment gains in significance due to a number of factors, prominent among which are agronomic trends that comprise development of high quality seeds through the enhanced potential offered by genetically modified organisms (GMOs), changes in climatic conditions, increasing rates of crop rotation, flexibility in sowing approaches and greater pressure from regulatory requirements. Primary requirements of seed treatment include capability of offering good protection during the germination period, supporting early plant development and enhancing stress tolerance at an early stage. These can be achieved by improving the quality of seed treatment products that offer ease of application at low rates. In short, it may be summed up that the foundation for the future lies in the concept of innovation in seed treatment.
