The global hybrid seeds market was valued at $52,114 million in 2016, and is expected to reach at $99,854 million in 2023, growing at a CAGR of 9.7% from 2017 to 2023. Hybrid seeds are produced through hybridization, which is a breeding process that involves crossing of two inbred lines from different backgrounds to develop seed varieties with stronger biological characteristics.

These seeds offer various advantages, such as higher yield potential, improved plant vigor, enhanced resistance to disease & stress, uniformity, and better return on investment. Hybrid varieties that are continuously enhanced and are adapted to the current requirements dominate the crops in which breeders achieved more than 15% of hybrid vigor. These seeds are being increasingly used in fruit & vegetable crops due to their potential to deliver agronomic traits, such as insect tolerance and enhanced food quality.

Growth in usage of hybrid seeds with various advanced traits, such as seed coatings, new product offerings, and mechanical & biological innovations associated with farms to increase overall productivity are the major factors that drive the market growth globally. In addition, decline in arable land, innovation to enhance the variety of hybrid seeds, and diversification in diets supplement the market growth.

Asia-Pacific is leading, in terms of both value and volume, due to growth in population and rise in demand for new & enhanced agricultural products. Introduction of special schemes to increase productivity in the region resulted in surge in usage of hybrid seeds. Market liberalization to ensure proper availability of high-quality & high-yielding seeds to Indian farmers and flexibility of norms while exporting products to overseas play a crucial role in growth & development of the market.

However, change in climatic conditions and the fact that hybrid seeds cannot be reproduced as two different types of genes in F1 hybrid are segregated in the offspring, resulting in an extremely variable progeny limit the market growth. Diversified demand for hybrid crops in the emerging countries and technology-driven agriculture in the developed countries are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the expansion.
