The global demand of seed treatment has been primarily driven by the growth of the
commercial seeds (conventional and bio-seeds) market. Increasing global farming and
reduction in arable land has generated the need for high yield productivity, further
boosting the market for seed treatment. Increasing input cost of seeds and technological
developments in agriculture are also expected to drive the demand for seed treatment.
However, environmental concerns regarding the toxicity of chemicals used in insecticides,
fungicides and other chemical treatments are expected to inhibit the market growth.

Insecticides dominated the seed treatment market and accounted for 52.5% of the total
market revenue in 2011. Insecticides were followed by fungicides which accounted for 34.9%
of the total market in 2011. Nonchemical treatment, which is generally done using
biological agents, is expected to be the fastest growing treatment, at an estimated CAGR
of 9.9% from 2012 to 2018.
