Title: North America Contribute approximately 35% of the Global Seeds and Traits Market: Ken Research

North America Contribute approximately 35 of the
Global Seeds and Traits Market Ken Research
GM seed segment is the leading market in the US
seed industry owing to the increase in
productivity and resistance from pests and
herbicides. The US seeds market is further
expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 6 during
2017 2022
The report titled The US Seed Market Outlook to
2022 By Crop Type (Corn, Cotton, Soyabean,
Wheat, Rice, Grain Sorghum, Oats, Vegetable
Seeds), by Open Pollinated, Hybrid and
Genetically Modified Seeds by Ken Research
anticipate a resilient and challenging outlook
for incumbent seed segments such as Corn, soybean
and see stable growth in Vegetable seed, Wheat
and Sugarbeet seed space with anticipated growth
in GM adoption in the next 5 years. The US is
the largest and the most diverse global
commercial seed market, which is followed by
China, France, Brazil and Canada. The seed
industry is the US is concentrated among the few
big players though there are over 750 private
seed companies engaged in the business with an
offering of over 60,000 seed varieties of
planting seeds.
The distribution channel in US seed industry
varies between multiple states however it is
mostly led by the dealer channel and retail
channel. Seed companies also tend to sell
directly to the farmers in case of large
operations. For input providers, channel
retailers and dealers are significant partners as
they manage directly the relationship with the
farmer. The US has observed the approval of 195
single trait events in 20 crop species alfalfa
(3 events), apple (3), Argentine canola (20),
chicory (3), cotton (28), creeping bentgrass (1),
flax (1), maize (43), melon (2), papaya (3), plum
(1), potato (43), rice (3), rose (2), soybean
(24), squash (2), sugar beet (3), tobacco (1),
tomato (8), and wheat (1) since 1996. In 2016
itself, food, feed and cultivation approvals were
made for apple (1 event), maize (2) and potato
  • The GM seed crop area in the US recorded a growth
    of 3 at around 73 million hectares which is
    about 39 of the global biotech area in 2016. GM
    seed prices differs with trait stacking/bundling,
    perceived agronomic conditions in each US region
    in terms of pest infestations, rainfall, others
    and availability of substitute seeds, commodity
    prices, and farmer income.
  • As the biotech seeds adoption rate is rising, the
    competition in the seed business has become more
    challenging. Companies with a high market share
    in regions which experience significant acreage
    shifts could realize more loss than companies
    with a lower share.
  • According to Ken Research, DuPont Pioneer and
    Monsanto have continued to dominate over 70 of
    the corn seed business and about 60 of the
    soybean seed market in the US in 2016. This level
    of concentration among major corporations which
    sell patented seeds

makes the seed sector a monopolistic nature in
top grain markets. The proposed agrochemical
mergers such as Bayer with Monsanto, Dupont with
Dow Chemical and ChemChina with Syngenta will
make the concentration more intense. Key Topics
