Market Overview:

The global GM crops market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.5% from 2018 to 2030. The market growth is attributed to the increasing demand for food and drink, agricultural, and other applications. North America dominates the global GM crops market with a share of more than 35%. Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing region during the forecast period.

Global GM Crops Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

GM crops, also known as genetically modified crops, are plants that have been altered in a laboratory to change their genes. This can be done to make the plant resistant to pests or diseases, or to make it produce a higher yield. GM crops are important because they can help farmers produce more food while using fewer resources.


Soybean is a plant storage protein, which was first extracted and used in the food industry for human consumption. Soy has been one of the most important crops in terms of providing nutrition to humans on a daily basis. It contains all the eight essential amino acids, making it an ideal source for human consumption as well as animal feed. The high nutritional value of soybean makes it very popular among consumers across various age groups.


Corn is one of the most important crops in the global food and agriculture industry. It is also known as maize, a staple food for millions of people across the globe. Corn has been an essential part of human diet since Neolithic times and its consumption continues to this day on account of its nutritional content including starch, fiber, vitamins (B6 & B12), minerals such as iron & calcium and low fat levels.

Application Insights:

Food and drink was the largest application segment in 2017. The use of GM crops for food and drinks is allowed in most countries across the world, with a few notable exceptions. In Europe, only rapeseed has approved usage for food production; however, it is permitted to be used as animal feed as well. Similarly, soybean can be consumed directly as meal or oil but cannot be used to make bread or other products due to its protein content being higher than that of conventional varieties.

The agricultural segment accounted for over 40% of global GM crop market revenue in 2017 owing to high adoption rate of herbicide-tolerant soybean and maize among others such as cotton and sugarcane among many others which have been developed through biotechnology tools such as gene editing tool (gene splicing) & genetic modification technique (DNA transformation).

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global GM crops market in terms of revenue with a share of over 50.0% in 2017. The region is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period as well owing to favorable regulatory policies and increasing adoption of biotech crops that provide enhanced productivity and improved crop quality.

The U.S., which was at the forefront, has adopted nearly allGM crops technologies available, despite strong opposition from environmental groups concerned about potential risks associated with these plantsafety issues including contamination of non-target species and adverse effects on human health & environment .

Asia Pacific is also projected to witness significant growth over the coming years due to rising demand for food security coupled with growing population especially in India & China, which are among top five agricultural nations globally; thus driving demand for improved crop yields through biotechnology techniques such as genetic modification (GM).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for food due to population growth
  • Rising income levels in developing countries
  • Adoption of GM crops by farmers due to their advantages such as increased yield, resistance to pests and diseases, and tolerance to herbicides
  • Technological advancements in the field of GM crops that help improve their quality and yield
  • Government policies supportive of GM crops
