Executive Summary
The Global Seed Market, valued at USD 61.50 billion in the year 2019 has been witnessing unprecedented growth in the last few years on the back of permanent release of new varieties and hybrids that bring more sophisticated technology to farmers as well as a steady increase of international seed trade and exponential increase in food demand from the expanding global population amid decreasing availability of arable land.
