Commercial seeds are developed to cater to the food needs of the rising population across the world. Today, farmers and public-sector plant cultivators hold a small share of the commercial seed market worldwide. This is because in a span of three decades, a handful of multinational corporations have utilized intellectual property laws to commoditize the world's seed supply.
The report cites many reasons for the development of the commercial seed market over the past few years. The increasing global population, rising demand for animal feed and oleochemicals, and increasing utilization of biofuels are some of the vital reasons for the market's growth. The report also explains the various factors that are hindering the growth of this market. This primarily includes challenges from patent-related issues; large companies have acquired patents on advanced plant breeding methods, which leaves others to employ conventional methods. This also restricts other players from utilizing specified genetic traits in plant breeding procedures. The commercial seed market is highly consolidated with 75% of the total market being taken over by the top ten players. Other than this, increasing concerns about risks of genetically modified crops is also hampering the growth of this market to a considerable extent, adds the report.
