Report ID: 139839 3300 Agriculture 377 250 Pages 4.6 (38)

Market Overview:

The global dormant alfalfa seed market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for organic food products and the rising awareness about the benefits of consuming organic food products. In addition, factors such as the increasing demand for biofuels and rising population are also contributing to the growth of this market. On the basis of type, GMO-based dormant alfalfa seed held a major share in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period. This can be attributed to factors such as easy availability and high yield potential offered by GMO-based dormant alfalfa seeds as compared with non-GMO counterparts. However, non-GMO based dormant alfalfa seeds are gaining popularity among consumers owing to health concerns associated with consumption of GMOs. On the basis of application, agriculture held a dominant share in 2017.

Global Dormant Alfalfa Seed Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A dormant alfalfa seed is a seed that has been allowed to dry out and has lost its ability to germinate. Dormant alfalfa seeds can be stored for long periods of time and then used to reseed pastures or hay fields.


Genetically Modified Organism is a plant or animal whose genetic material has been modified in a way that does not occur naturally. Genetically modified organisms are created through the introduction of a gene from another organism (usually from bacteria, but also including genes from other plants and even viruses) into the DNA of an organism's genome.


Non-GMO is a term used for food products that are grown without the use of any harmful chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers. The major factor driving the global non-GMO market growth includes rising health awareness among consumers all over the world. Growing population and increasing disposable income levels in developing countries such as China and India have been fueling demand for non-GMO foods across these regions.

Application Insights:

The application segment includes agriculture, food and others. The agriculture segment held the largest market share in 2017 due to the high demand from countries such as China, India and Brazil. In addition, favorable government policies for increasing agricultural production are expected to boost industry growth over the forecast period.

In 2017, food application accounted for a significant share of global dormant alfalfa seed market owing to rising demand from countries including Japan and Germany for animal feed products containing protein sources such as soybean meal and fish meal. Furthermore, increasing awareness about healthy eating habits among consumers is anticipated to fuel industry growth over the coming years.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to witness a growth rate of 5.6% over the forecast period, owing to increasing awareness about alfalfa seeds and their benefits among farmers. In addition, presence of large-scale seed manufacturers such as Syngenta Seeds Inc., and Cargill Inc., in this region has led to an increase in availability of high-quality products for cultivation purposes.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be one of the fastest growing regions during the forecast period owing to rising demand from countries such as China, India, Japan and Australia for dormant alfalfa seeds due its high yield production compared with other crops grown on same land area.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for organic food products: The global market for organic food is projected to grow at a CAGR of more than 14% from 2016 to 2021. This growth is driven by the increasing awareness about the benefits of organic food, such as better nutritional value and fewer harmful chemicals. Alfalfa seed is used in the production of organic foods, so this growing demand will drive the growth of the dormant alfalfa seed market.
  • Rising demand for animal feed: The global livestock industry is growing rapidly, owing to rising population and income levels in developing countries. This has led to an increase in demand for animal feed, which drives the use of alfalfa seed as a feed ingredient. Thus, rising demand for animal feed will spur growth in the dormant alfalfa seed market during the forecast period.
  • Growing popularity of functional foods: Functional foods are those that offer additional health benefits beyond basic nutritionalsupplements present in traditional foods. They are becoming increasingly popular due to their potential health benefits, such as reducing risk factors for chronic diseases like heart disease and cancer . Alfalfa seeds are used in functional food products due their high nutrient content; thus, rising popularity of functional foods will boost growth prospects forthe dormant alfalfaseedmarketin coming years .
