Asia-Pacific to Emerge as the Most Lucrative Market

While North and South America are expected to remain the largest markets for GM crops, Asia-Pacific is set to emerge as the fastest growing market in the global genetically modified seeds market. However, developing nations in Asia-Pacific such as India, China, Vietnam, and Philippines, are increasing their investment in research and development of GM crops. For example, India recently approved commercial launch of GM Mustard. Moreover, growing food requirements of their increasing young populations have necessitated the use of GM crops and expand their area of cultivation. This bodes well for the market and its key participants.

Growing Adoption by Farmers Fueling the Market

The global genetically modified seeds industry is set to surge as awareness among farmers regarding the benefits of genetically modified crops is increasing. The main advantages driving the rising adoption are drought and pest resistance and their high yielding properties. While the area under cultivation under GM crops grew at 3.6% CAGR between 2010 and 2017, it is expected to expand at a rate of 2.5% during the forecast period. A higher yield makes transgenic crops a commercially attractive option to conventional crops, enhancing the market potential.
