The sector has been witnessing significant growth in recent years, supported by several drivers such as the growing production of seeds, expanding seed portfolio and growing threat from weather. The industry is represented by major international and local players such as Incotec, Littles Oriental Balm and Pharmaceuticals Ltd, Centor India, Mahendra Overseas, Sampatti Industries and others. The market for seed coating was evaluated at INR ~ million during FY’2016, grown at a CAGR of ~% during FY’2011-FY’2016.
Seed coating industry of India is largely concentrated among a few players. Major seed manufacturers like Nuziveedu Seeds, Ajeet Seeds, Ankur Seeds, Syngenta, Monsanto, DuPont Pioneer, Mahyco and others are purchasing bulk of seed coating polymers from players like Incotec, Littles Oriental Balm and Pharmaceutical Ltd. However, smaller players like Mahendra Overseas and Sampatti Industries and Suboneyo Chemicals are also emerging in the market by supplying large quantities of materials to small/medium sized companies in the country.
Polymers/Polymer Colorants have dominated the seed coating materials market of India during FY’2016. Polymer coating is an integral part of the seed industry in India. Majority of seed manufacturers are suing polymer coating in their seeds. Polymer coating seeds offer the benefits of safe handling by the workers, farmers and dealers. They make sure seed treatments such as pesticides, fungicide and nutrients are firmly held on the seed and therefore, maximize the productivity of the seed and seedling active ingredients. All the major seed manufacturers in India apply polymer coatings on major commercial seeds such as cotton, maize, paddy, hybrid vegetables and many others as it has several benefits.
In terms of crops, Cotton has accounted for the ~ revenue share in the seed coating market of India during FY’2016. In cotton seed, yield and germination capabilities deterioration takes place rapidly under ambient storage conditions. Film coating techniques have paved the way for control of seed decay during storage. Large number of seed manufacturers in the industry prefers coating seeds with polymers and other materials. Majority of cotton seeds are coated ~ color in India.
The domestic market for seed coating materials is a B2B market where the supplier is directly in contact with the consumer as there are no middlemen involved. There are a total of 10-15 players operating in the space.
The future of the Indian seed industry is expected to be favorable on account of impelling demand due to increased subsidies and renewed government thrust on the use of high yielding varieties, thereby leading to an increased productivity in the seed market. Increasing production of seed will directly enhance the seed coating market in the country.
Furthermore, large numbers of farmers in India save a substantial portion of the seeds for upcoming seasons. This will further propel the seed coating market as polymer coatings and pelleting increase the storability of the seeds keeping the ability of seeds to germinate intact for a longer time.
Moreover, major players like Incotec, Centor India, Little’s Oriental, Mahendra Overseas and others will expand the operations and new players will enter in the market. This will lead to increase in domestic supply of seed coating materials and share of imports is likely to fall over the period FY’2017-FY’2021. Pelleting sector, in particular will be witnessing major growth over the period FY’2016-FY’2021.
