Key Market Trends
Open Pollinated Varieties & Hybrid Derivatives is the largest segment by Breeding Technology.
In Vietnam, open-pollinated varieties and hybrid derivatives (OPVs) dominated the market in 2021. It held 53% of the total share value in the Vietnamese seed market. Row crops held a 79.8% share of OPVs.?
In Vietnam, the government is promoting locally bred open-pollinated varieties by a restriction on the maximum price that international seed companies can charge. OPVs require fewer inputs and are more affordable for low-income farmers. Reducing the reliance on hybrid seed imports and developing local seeds provides opportunities for poverty reduction in disadvantaged regions.
In 2021, transgenic hybrids accounted for 2.2% of the Vietnams’ hybrid seed market value due to their higher productivity, wider adaptability, high degree of resistance to insects, and herbicide-tolerant characteristics. Hybrids’ wider adaptability is mainly due to their high buffering capacity to environmental fluctuations.???
In 2021, the non-transgenic seeds market held more than 97% share value in the Vietnamese hybrid seed market. This is mainly due to the high adoption and high usage of hybrid seeds in the country compared to traditional or inbred seeds. ???
Maize seeds held the largest share value in the non-transgenic market, with 19% in 2021. According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, in Vietnam, all corn fields use hybrid seeds, especially in the northern midland and mountainous regions.???Therefore, it can be a restraint for the OPV segment during the forecast period.
Therefore, based on the above factors, the OPV seed segment in the market is expected to grow during the forecast period.??
The Vietnam Seed Market is fragmented, with the top five companies occupying 17.76%. The major players in this market are Bayer AG, East-West Seed, Groupe Limagrain, Known You Seed Co., LTD and Syngenta Group (sorted alphabetically).
