Key Market Trends

Decrease in Per Capita Arable Land

The global per capita land availability was around 0.22 ha in 2005, which reduced to 0.19 ha in 2015. As a result of population expansion and steady land degradation rate, the per capita land is expected to decrease, in the future. The decreasing per capita availability of arable land is a major concern for global agricultural production. However, it is considered to be a driver for the seed industry.

The reducing per capita arable land, especially in the developing countries, is encouraging corporations and farmers to pool their resources, for contract farming. The increasing contract farming practices help converge a large set of farmers to one point, for seed selection. This maintains a uniformity in the produce, thus helping the seller to obtain sustainable demand and augmenting the bulk sale of seeds. Thus, the decreasing per capita arable land globally is going to drive the global vegetable seeds market by increasing the production of HYV and hybrid variety seeds in various countries.

North America is Leading the Market
