Market Overview:

The global commercial (conventional and biotech/GM) seeds market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2018 to 2030. The market growth is attributed to the increasing demand for food due to the growing population, rising income levels, and changing dietary habits in developing countries. In addition, the increasing adoption of GM crops due to their high yield potential and resistance against pests and diseases is also propelling the growth of this market. However, stringent regulatory framework for GM crops in developed countries is restraining the growth of this market. The maize segment accounted for the largest share of the global commercial (conventional and biotech/GM) seeds market in 2017. This segment is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6% from 2018 to 2030 owing to its high production potential and widespread use across various applications such as animal feed, ethanol production, starch processing, etc.

Global Commercial (Conventional and Biotech/GM) Seeds Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Commercial Seeds are those that have been developed and registered for sale by a commercial seed company. They are typically hybrids, bred for high yield and other agronomic traits. Commercial Seeds may be conventional or biotech/GM. The importance of Commercial Seeds is that they offer farmers the best chance to produce a high yield crop, with the least amount of inputs.


Maize ( Zea mays) is a widely grown grain crop in the world, with over 300 million tons produced annually. It is also one of the most important crops in terms of food and an important source of nutrition for humans and animals. Maize has been known to have more nutritional value than rice, wheat or any other major grain crop available today.


Soybean is a plant that is grown for its edible oil, which is used in the food industry. Soybean and it's by-products are used in various applications such as biodiesel, soaps & detergents, textiles and cosmetics among others. The global market for soybean has seen significant growth over the past few years owing to an increase in demand from end-use industries.

Application Insights:

The global conventional and biotech/GM seeds market is segmented by application into agricultural and research institutions. The agricultural application segment accounted for the largest share in 2017, as these products are used to produce next generation crops with higher yield, enhanced nutritional content, disease resistance and tolerance to abiotic or biotic stresses such as heat, cold temperatures or drought.

Agricultural applications of these products include growing crops for human consumption (such as fruits and vegetables), animal feed production (such as maize) or cultivation in fields (such as soybean). Conventional cottonseed accounts for a significant portion of the overall demand owing to its usage in the production of textile fibers which is a key industry within Asia Pacific region.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017, accounting for more than 30.0% of the total revenue share. The region is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for food and feed production as well as rising research on conventional and biotech seeds across several countries such as U.S., Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay etc. North America has a strong presence of seed companies such as Syngenta; Monsanto; Dow AgroSciences LLC.; DuPont Pioneer; Cargill Inc.; JBF Corporation; Avantor Performance Materials Inc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for quality seeds from the agriculture sector to meet the rising food demand across the globe.
  • Proliferation of new seed technologies and products that improve crop yields and resistance to pests and diseases.
  • Growing awareness among farmers about the benefits of using commercial seeds over traditional methods.
  • Rising investments by seed companies in research & development activities to develop new hybrids and varieties of crops.
