The global agricultural biotechnology market was valued at USD 33.8 billion in 2018. Agricultural biotechnology is the collection of novel techniques to enhance crop productivity and efficiency. It provides framers an innovative technology that can make crop reasonable and productive. It is used to safeguard crops from destructive diseases, and to alter the genetic sequence of crops, which surges crop production. The global agricultural biotechnology market is growing at a significant rate, due to escalating per capita income, and mounting demand for biofuel.
Different technologies such as genome editing tools, ribonucleic acid interference (RNAi), biochips, deoxy ribonucleic acid (DNA) sequencing, and synthetic biology contributed to the agricultural biotechnology market size. The market has witnessed a high demand for genome editing tools due to escalating genome research and expanding the application of genome tools in agriculture research.
Insight by Technology
On the basis of technology, the global agricultural biotechnology market is categorized into genome editing tools, ribonucleic acid interference (RNAi), biochips, deoxy ribonucleic acid (DNA) sequencing, and synthetic biology. Of all technologies, synthetic biology segment is expected to grow at fastest rate in the market, due to the capacity of synthetic biology to produce larger groups of genes and gene parts in a particular genome of crop seed. In addition, genome editing tools accounted the largest share in the market, due to escalating genome research, and expanding the application of genome tools in agriculture research.
Insight by Product
On the basis of product, the global agricultural biotechnology market is segmented into transgenic seeds, and crop protection products. Of all the products, crop protection products are expected to grow at a faster rate in the market due to its benefits such as guarding plants against several harmful chemicals and other pests. In addition, the transgenic seeds segment accounted the largest share in the market, due to mounting demand of transgenic soybean worldwide, decrease in cultivable land, and transgenic crops expand agricultural productivity and help producers.
The crop protection products segment is further subdivided into biostimulants and biopesticides. The transgenic seeds segment is further subdivided into soybean, fruits and vegetables, maize, cotton, and others. The soybean segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate in the market, due to its health benefits.
Expanding population size, the prospering need for transgenic crops, mounting demand of genetically modified crops, escalating per capita income, regulatory reinforce in the U.S. and Brazil, intensifying animal feed owing to mounting meat consumption, and mounting demand for biofuel is the primary growth drivers for agricultural biotechnology market.
Majority of genetically modified crops grown in developing economies, escalating agricultural needs, and mounting research activities in genetically modified crops in developing countries are also facilitating the growth of the agricultural biotechnology market.
Stringent rules and guidelines associated to the registration of genetically modified products, terminator seed technology, issues associated to patent rights of biotech crops, and conflict towards genetically modified crops in Europe are the major challenges for the growth of agricultural biotechnology market.
Globally, the manufacturing companies trying to enter the agricultural biotechnology market are required to maintain stringent regulatory standards. Moreover, the high level of capital requirement also poses a major barrier to the entry of new players. This offers an edge to the established players in the industry competition.
Geographically, North America is the largest agricultural biotechnology market as in the region the acceptance of genetically modified crops is increasing. In addition, reductions in the application of pesticides, mounting research activities in genetically modified crops, and greater repays from farming operations are also up surging growth of the North American agricultural biotechnology market.
Asia-Pacific is observed to witness the fastest growth in the market, due to mounting acceptance of modern farming technique. In addition, escalating disposable income, greater food demand and expanding population size are also creating a positive impact on the agricultural biotechnology market growth in the region.
Key players in the agricultural biotechnology market are catering to the demand of these devices by investing in technologically advanced products in their product portfolio across the globe. In June 2018, Bayer AG acquired Monsanto Company, to help and improve harvest even better.
Syngenta AG, Bayer AG, Evogene Ltd., DowDuPont Inc., KWS SAAT SE, BASF SE, Performance Plants Inc., Global Bio-chem Technology Group Company Limited, Vilmorin & Cie, Certis USA LLC, and ADAMA Agricultural Solutions Ltd are the key players offering agricultural biotechnology.
