Hybrid Seeds Market Size (2021 - 2026)

The global Hybrid Seeds Market size is estimated to reach a value of USD 35.3 billion in 2026 growing with a CAGR of 6.9% from USD 25.5 billion in 2021. 

Hybrid seeds are extracted from natural out-breeding crops. These hybrid seeds are developed artificially by crossing two or more different species. Crossing two different species results in the development of seeds that carries one or more favorite traits. Hybrid seeds are majorly used in commercial farming to raise crop yields and develop disease and climate-resistant plants. Hybrid seeds are not genetically adapted. Crossing involves taking pollen from the male flower of one plant and transferring that pollen to the female flower parts of a different plant. 

Advantages of hybrid seeds include high heat, early maturity, stimulated yield, better fruit quality, pest resistance, and better uniformity. Hybrid seeds are used in modern agriculture and home gardening. However, hybridization technology in agriculture helps to develop crop production. Hybridization also helps to amplify the grain qualities, decrease pest incidences, and surge the overall crop productivity. Hybrid seeds are treated with physical, biological, and chemical agents for developing healthy crops and avoiding diseases caused by insects and pests. Hybrid seeds are used for rice cultivation. Hybrid seeds can't be used twice. 

Market Drivers

The emerging countries' highly demand fruits and vegetables drive the hybrid seeds market growth. Introducing new technologies like advanced mechanical technology in farms and the accumulating need for the superior quality of seeds have driven the hybrid seeds market growth. 

The increasing biotechnological advancements across the agricultural sector boost the hybrid seeds market growth. Consumers are demanding more high-quality with the rise in population propelling the hybrid seeds market growth.

The demand for producing food is creating immense opportunities as urbanization has led to the loss of farmland. Some of the major companies are focusing on research and development activities for higher yield and disease-free. 

Market Restrains

However, customers having less or no knowledge and the absence of biotic stress-resistant hybrids restrain the hybrid seeds market growth. The preparation process of hybrid seeds is costlier and complicated hinders market growth. 

Segment Analysis

As per the research report, the global Hybrid Seeds Market is segmented based on crop type, key crop, and cultivation.

Hybrid Seeds Market - By Type

  • Cereals & grains
  • Oilseeds & pulses

COVID-19 Impact on Hybrid Seeds Market

The sudden eruption of COVID-19 harmed the agricultural sector worldwide. During the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, seed delivery is one of the essential services that continue to support the present and subsequent production cycles. During the severe pandemic situation, transportation has caused a severe effect in importing and exporting the hybrid seeds. Flights were canceled, shortage of drivers and slow process of the necessary documentation due to the low number of staff that creates specific problems in the seed sector. 

Due to the sudden eruption of the COVID-19, the hybrid seeds market growth has been affected. The effect has resulted in the overall production chain in the agriculture sector and has also resulted in a huge fall in the manufacture of agricultural products. However, with the improvement in the economy, the growing hybrid seeds market is scheduled to be reconstructed in the forthcoming years and provide profitable growth opportunities to the market players.

Recent Market Developments

  • On January 22, 2018, Bayer introduced its hybrid rice seed, Arize AZ 8433 DT with strong inbuilt tolerance to Brown Plant Hopper (BPB) and Bacterial Leaf Blight (BLB). BHP is the most devastating pest in rice-growing areas of India, causing huge losses to the farmers. 
  • On March 01, 2021, Corteva Agriscience launched Inzen Trait in Pioneer Brand Grain Sorghum. Sorghum growers have a new tool to better maximize their production with the ground-breaking Inzen herbicide-tolerant trait.
