The seed market in India has transformed immensely over the years from conventional seed market to a marketplace for genetically modified seeds, by growing at a CAGR of ~% over the period, FY’2010-FY’2015. In the recent years, there has been a shift in the preference by the farmers from open pollinated varieties to hybrids in field crops as well as vegetable crops.


Increasing population will result in an improved food demand. It will also lead to higher urbanization thereby reducing arable land and will place biodiversity resources under stress. The industry is expected to face major challenges in terms of unpredictable weather which may affect the pest occurrences in the short term. In addition, rising awareness among the farmers, growth in income levels owing to constant rise in prices of agriculture commodities combined with availability of better quality seeds would continue to push seeds demand in near to medium term period.


According to the research report, the India seeds market will grow at a considerable CAGR rate reaching INR 283.1 billion by FY’2020 due to improvement of seed replacement rate, production and distribution of quality seeds appropriate to agro-climatic zone at affordable prices along with a determined effort to address region specific constraints.
