The seed coating market is projected to reach a value of USD 3.0 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 8.5% from 2019 to 2025. The market is further driven by factors such as the increasing demand for coated seeds by advanced agricultural technologies, increasing awareness among farmers about the commercial utilization of seeds, and the increasing need for seed treatment, which has led to an increase in agricultural output. The high growth potential of agricultural businesses in developing countries and untapped regions, such as Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa, are projected to provide new growth opportunities for market players. Uncertainty in climatic conditions is also a key factor inhibiting the growth of the seed coating market.

Polymers accounted for the largest share in 2018 among all the additives used as seed coating
