Chemical seed treatments, which are typically manufactured from petrochemical or inorganic raw materials, are further segmented as insecticides, fungicides, and other chemical seed treatments. Globally, the market is dominated by chemical insecticides, accounting for over 51.7% of the total seed treatment demand in 2012. The global fungicide seed treatments market is growing at a CAGR of 9.2% and is expected to reach $1,367.8 million by 2018. The global insecticides seed treatment market is projected to reach $2,182.8 million by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 10.8%

Rising GM seed prices and cost effectiveness of seed treatments over other crop protection methods are expected to drive the demand for the seed treatment market in the near future. However, an absence of centralized government regulations for treated seed and seed treatment active ingredient registration are expected to hamper the growth and demand for seed treatments in the next five years.
