Japanese Biological Seed Treatment Market is Expected to Reach $4 million by 2020

Date: 2015-12-23

The Japanese market for biological seed treatment is projected to reach $4 million by 2020 to post a faster CAGR of 8.1% during 2014-2020, compared to chemical seed treatment.

Similar to rice, soybeans have constituted a staple of Japanese food culture since ancient times. Typically, the demand from the Japanese soy industry is for a product of superior quality that has high content of protein and sucrose. Japanese manufactures utilize a variety of different soy species that are intended for multiple end uses. Tofu (soybean curd), is the most common end use for soy in Japan, accounting for 58 percent of total food soybean use.

The market for seed treatment gains in significance due to a number of factors, prominent among which are agronomic trends that comprise development of high quality seeds through the enhanced potential offered by genetically modified organisms (GMOs), changes in climatic conditions, increasing rates of crop rotation, flexibility in sowing approaches and greater pressure from regulatory requirements.

Primary requirements of seed treatment include capability of offering good protection during the germination period, supporting early plant development and enhancing stress tolerance at an early stage. These can be achieved by improving the quality of seed treatment products that offer ease of application at low rates. In short, it may be summed up that the foundation for the future lies in the concept of innovation in seed treatment.
