The demand for healthy cereals & grains has created opportunities for seed manufacturers to adopt modern plant sequencing techniques
The growth in the adoption of various molecular breeding types, such as molecular engineering and genetic engineering tools, would increase the performance of crops to gain better prices in the market. The focus of the plant breeders and plant sequencing companies is on cereals and grains because they are the staple diet of the population in almost all the regions, and as the population of the world is increasing, so is the demand for the staple food. Among cereals & grains, rice, wheat, and corn are majorly bred using plant breeding & sequencing techniques, to develop high-performing varieties. Rice, along with wheat and corn, underpins the global food supply.
The increasing demand for improved varieties in plants in the Asia Pacific region is driving the growth of the plant genomics market.
The key players in various countries of the Asia Pacific region are focusing on directing their investments toward biotechnology research on food crops and crops of high commercial value to cater to the increasing food requirements and to reduce poverty, particularly among resource-poor farming households. With the adoption of modern plant breeding techniques, new crop cultivars can be developed to ensure high crop productivity. Also, key strategies such as the adoption of advanced plant technology by the leading players in the Asia Pacific region ensure food security globally among the end-users. Also, the government in various countries of the region are encouraging companies to adopt these methods by investing in R&D of agricultural biotechnology.
