The continually growing world population drives the seed market. In addition, rising demand of biofuels is mounting pressure on agricultural lands to increase yield of crops such as corn, which is a key ingredient in producing ethanol. Other key factors which are expected to drive the growth of global seeds include increased consumption of animal fodder to meet the growing population of cattle and a rising need in commodities such as vegetable oil. However, major concerns over Genetically Modified foods among the public and a minority of scientists exist regarding their ill effects on the human health and potential adverse effects to the environment.

Major crops under oilseed such as soybean, sunflower, rapeseed, and cotton have been analyzed in this report. Crops under grain seed such as corn, wheat, rice, and barley are also studied. The second segmentation is based on traits of Genetically Modified seeds.
