Fruit & Vegetable Seeds Market Forecasts to 2030 - Global Analysis By Breeding Technology (Open Pollinated Varieties and Hybrid Derivatives), Cultivation Mechanism (Protected Cultivation and Open Field), Form, Crop Family and By Geography
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Fruit & Vegetable Seeds Market is accounted for $8.68 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $15.56 billion by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 8.7% during the forecast period. A fruit or vegetable seed is a tiny, developing plant that is encased in a protective shell. The development of the seed was influenced by evolution, and many plants and animals rely on seeds as a crucial component of their survival strategies. The most popular method for growing fruits and vegetables is from seeds. The sustainability of the agri-food system and the development of the food chain are both largely dependent on seeds.
According to a report published by FiBL in 2017 on organic agriculture worldwide, there was an increase in organic farmland, the number of organic producers, and sales of organic products. Globally, approximately 1.4% of the total agricultural land is under organic cultivation.
Decline in the per capita arable land
Population increase and a continuous pace of land degradation have caused per capita land to decrease, and it is anticipated that this trend will continue. One of the main causes of worry for global agricultural production is the declining availability of arable land per capita. Nevertheless, it is seen as a motivator for the seed sector. A decrease in the amount of arable land per person, particularly in developing countries, stimulates businesses and farmers to collaborate, outsource farming, and use premium seeds. An increasing number of farmers are getting together for seed selection due to contract farming. By ensuring product consistency, the provider is better able to meet long-term demand and increase the sale of seeds in large quantities.
Presence of illegal seed practices
Illegal seed practises, such as those involving fake and counterfeit seeds, false labelling, infringement of intellectual property, and regulatory violations, have increased. The number of instances where counterfeit labels and seed bags have been marketed in developing countries has increased over time. The fact that low-income farmers cannot afford to buy huge amounts of seeds is a major factor in the problem. The vendors may now disassemble the bags, repackage them in lesser quantities, and offer them in loose form. This restricts the market for seeds.
Growing demand for diet-based nutritional food
Vegetables assist to diversify the diet and fight malnutrition by being included in the diet. By increasing the supply of vital micronutrients that promote better health, sharper thinking, and higher productivity, dietary diversity contributes to diet balance. Additionally, the high nutritional value of vegetables offers a cheap solution to the nutritional shortfall that plagues many poor nations. As a result, the increased demand for veggies throughout the world drives up the need for better vegetable production, supporting the industry's expansion.
Changing climatic conditions
A key problem for agricultural output worldwide is climate change. Crop output is strongly impacted by climate changes, and crops are vulnerable to pests and diseases. This has an impact on crop health and changes how farming is done. The seasonal effects of temperature, precipitation, and humidity on disease and its formation and propagation on seed material, which causes significant crop loss, have also been demonstrated by decades of research. Consequently, the production of vegetables is impacted by a change in temperature and an increase in air moisture content.
The COVID-19 epidemic's spread and response measures have damaged the world's agriculture industry. Markets and supply chains for agricultural inputs and goods have been significantly affected as a result of these mitigating efforts. Given that seeds are the basis of agricultural output, seed transportation is one of the most crucial services that must continue to support both the present and next production cycles amid crises like the COVID-19 pandemic. The seed sector, however, has particular difficulties due to problems with domestic and international seed delivery brought on by fewer planes, fewer drivers, and the sluggish processing of essential paperwork due to a staffing shortage.
The hybrid derivatives segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
The hybrid derivatives segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth. To meet the needs of farmers and consumers, hybrid seeds are created. Adaptability, nutrition, taste, yield, colour, form, size, cooking quality, flavour, and shelf life are just a few of the traits that hybrid vegetables possess. Due to their advantages over non-hybrid seeds, hybrid seeds are becoming more and more popular. Utilising hybrid vegetable planting seeds enables farmers to protect their crops from a variety of environmental stresses, including pests and plant diseases. These seeds also have the potential for large yields and reliable performance all year long. In the last three decades, farmers' acceptance of hybrid seeds has also fueled the expansion of several seed firms, which also forces the businesses to provide high-quality seeds.
The solanaceae segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The solanaceae segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period. The main Solanaceae crops that are in high demand worldwide include tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, and peppers. In order to create high-quality seeds like the hybrid tomato, vegetable seed producers are increasing their investment in the Solanaceae market. The hybrid tomato is most widely used in India and the United States. Moreover, due to its high seed renewal rate of 99.3%, tomato is the predominant vegetable seed in the Solanaceae family.
Region with largest share:
Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. The main nations in the region with high vegetable production and consumption are China and India. The dominance of the area in the global market would also be supported by the fact that China is a major worldwide market. The main drivers of the market in this region are the expanding agricultural sector, growing public awareness of the health advantages of vegetables, and expanding horticulture crop land.
Region with highest CAGR:
Europe is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to its rapid advancements in the breeding technologies. The third-largest vegetable grower in the world is located in Europe. Asparagus, peas, spinach, onion, and carrot were the main vegetables cultivated. The region is a major producer of fruits and vegetables, and the expansion is due to an increase in vegetable exports internationally. Additionally, there is a rising need for hybrid tomato, lettuce, and sweet pepper seeds in the nation. These elements are projected to help the market in this area even more.
Key players in the market
