Rice Seeds Market

By seed size, long grain rice seeds are estimated to be most widely used in 2018. This is owing to the high rate of cultivation across various countries in North America and Asia. The limited application of short grain rice in the food industry is also aiding in driving the growth of these types of seeds. For instance, in Asian countries, Basmati and jasmine are some of the long-grain rice varieties that are exported from Asia in large quantities and have industrial importance from the perspective of rice millers in terms of price value. The major players in the market, such as Bayer and DowDuPont, focus on long rice grains, followed by medium-sized rice and short rice.

By treatment, untreated rice seeds account for a larger market size; however, treatment of seeds and their adoption has been gaining importance for field crops, such as corn, wheat, and soybean, to reduce crop loss from early pest attacks. However, the adoption of this technology for rice is still gradual across countries. Rice is mainly cultivated in Asian countries. However, farmers are reluctant to invest capital in crop inputs and prefer adopting the traditional techniques of crop protection. Due to the rising need for sustainable agriculture and integrated pest management guidelines laid by governments in Asian countries has encouraged farmers to adopt seed coating technologies. On account of these factors, this segment is projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is a major consumer and producer of rice across the globe, and inadequate arable land in this region has encouraged farmers for better yield from their cultivation. Adoption of advanced technologies such as hybrid and certified seeds is also increasing in this region. According to the recent data of USDA published in 2016, India and China are the two major producers and consumers of rice, not only in the Asia Pacific region but across the globe. The Asia Pacific market for rice seeds is consolidated with two players occupying the largest share, followed by other players. Since rice cultivation in other regions of the world is comparatively low, the growth of the Asia Pacific market is projected to remain steady during the forecast period.
