Wheat Seed Market Size Worth $7.17 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 4.71%

The global wheat seed market size is expected to reach USD 7.17 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Wheat Seed Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Type (Hard Red Winter, Soft Red Winter, Hard White, Soft White, Hard Red Spring Wheat Seed, and Durum Wheat Seed); By Breeding Technology; By Application; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2023- 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

Rising demand for food as a result of an expanding world population is what essentially drives the worldwide market. As per the UN, by 2050, 68 percent of the global population, up from the 55 percent from 2022, is projected to live in the cities. There is rising concern that as the global population gets more urbanized, precious cropland is being lost worldwide as a result of urbanization, which poses a serious threat to global food security. For instance, according to the National Academy of Science, by 2030, global urbanization would cause a 1.8–2.4% loss of cropland, resulting in a 3–4% decline in food production worldwide. The majority of this loss would occur in Asia and Africa, where a sizable fraction of the population still lives in rural areas. 

In addition, the world's most populous nation, China, has been rapidly urbanizing for four decades. If the current rate of growth in urban population growth is maintained, by 2050 the proportion of the total population living in urban areas will have increased by 80–90%. Cities will have to grow and occupy adjacent lands, including current and potential croplands, to make space for these many citizens.

Accordingly, the market is being stimulated by ongoing technological developments in the creation of novel seed varieties that are more resistant to pests and diseases while also being more tolerant of drought and other environmental stressors. For instance, in September 2022, According to researchers at the ICAR-Indian Institute of Wheat and Barley Research (IIWBR), the types are resistant to climate change and can produce up to 75 quintals per hectare, allowing farmers to harvest 5 to 10 quintals more than the typical yield of 20 to 22 quintals per acre. 

These new seed varieties, known as DBW-316, DBW-55 (d), DBW-370, & DBW-372, have been certified by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research's (ICAR) identification committee for wheat & barley. This can be ascribed to the fast urbanization that has caused a major drop in the amount of arable land, necessitating a higher yield from a smaller amount of land. These are the major factors assisting the growth of the wheat seed market.
