Rising awareness among the farmers regarding the benefits of using hybrid seeds is driving the growth of India seeds market in the forecast period, 2025-2029.

According to TechSci Research report, “India Seeds Market – By Region, Competition, Forecast and Opportunities, 2029”, India seeds market stood at USD 3,914.36 million in 2023 and is anticipated to grow with CAGR of 7.41% in the forecast period. This can be ascribed to the rising awareness among the farmers related to the benefits of using hybrid seeds. Seed is defined as a fertilized ovule, which contains the plant embryo. It is a mature ovule that consists of an embryo or a miniature undeveloped plant and food reserves, all enclosed within a protective seed coat.

The Indian agricultural sector is facing the challenge of increasing population and decreasing arable land. This has led to an increased demand for high-yielding seeds that can help farmers to increase their crop productivity. Hybrid seeds are known for their high yield and resistance to pests and diseases. The increasing adoption of hybrid seeds is one of the major growth drivers for the Indian seed market.

In plant breeding, a variety of techniques are employed to select plants based on natural variations, hybridize them, and select particular genes or marker profiles through molecular tools. The primary goal of these techniques is to select plant types that are superior to variants in terms of their yield, quality, and pest resistance. The situation after the introduction of hybrids and enhanced OPVs has led to a variety of benefits, including improved yield, higher seed prices, and cost-effectiveness. These factors are expected to contribute to the expansion of the seed market in India in the near future.
