The global biological seed treatment market is estimated to be valued at USD 0.9 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 1.7 billion by 2025, recording a CAGR of 11.9%. The market is influenced by the adoption of sustainable agricultural practices, along with strong investments being made by major market players in the research and development of these products. The agricultural and environmental benefits associated with these biological seed treatment solutions are the major factors contributing to the growth of this market globally. Beneficial microorganisms and plant extracts are projected to act as important tools that could help reduce the usage of synthetic fertilizers and chemical pesticides, thereby reducing the investments by farmers and environmental risks.
Driver: Environmental concerns associated with chemical seed treatment
The demand for biological seed treatment has significantly increased as a result of high awareness of their potential and the growing attention to the environmental and health risks associated with conventional chemicals. Chemical seed treatments are detrimental to the environment and pose a serious risk to pollinators. The neonicotinoid class of insecticides is considered highly toxic to honeybees. Microorganisms employed as active substances in pest management are recognized as generally safe for the environment and non-target species, in comparison with synthetic chemicals.

Challenges: Inconsistent performance and incompatibility with certain pesticides
The features of biological seed treatments that have discouraged investment are their inconsistent results. The most common problems encountered during the usage of such products include desiccation and environmental conditions that discourage their growth. Successful inoculants with one crop may not work as effectively with another crop. For instance, Trichoderma is more effective for the increase in yield in tomatoes than cucumbers. Choosing just one or two microbes is not as effective as loading with an entire community. However, effectiveness can sometimes be increased by a combination of microbes, with various growth requirements. For instance, fungi can be combined with PGPR.
Seed enhancement segment is estimated to be the largest market for biological seed treatment during the forecast period
The seed enhancement segment comprises biofertilizers and biostimulants. Cumulatively, they were estimated to account for a major share of the total market in 2020. The product portfolio of major companies involved in the biological seed treatment market is more focused toward biofertilizers and biostimulants. Thus, the market for biofertilizers is the largest and is expected to maintain its growth momentum in future.
By function, seed protection segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment in the seed treatment market during the forecast period.
On the basis of function, the biological seed treatment market has broadly been segmented into seed enhancement and seed protection. Biological seed treatments aimed at seed protection provide targeted control of certain pests and fungal diseases during the early seedling stage. Biological seed treatments are used on multiple crops to control a variety of pests. It ensures uniform stand establishment through defense against numerous soil-borne pathogens and insects.

The major reason for the biological seed treatment market experiencing such a high growth rate is the highly streamlined product registration process, which makes it easier for most private companies to launch their products easily. Lower investment requirement and limited gestation period involved in the development and commercialization of biological products are key factors attracting a large number of startup companies in the industry. Additionally, growing awareness among consumers against synthetic chemicals has also led to a higher adoption of these products.
