Seed Treatment: Technologies and Global Markets

https://www.reportbuyer.com/product/1863181/Seed-Treatment-Technologies-and-Global-Markets.html

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

This report provides the reader with a detailed analysis of the global seed treatment market. It also discusses technological developments and equipments, evolution of seed treatment, future trends and opportunities. This information will be useful for those involved in strategic planning, marketing, sales and technological development. The major objectives of this study are as follows:
• Assess the seed treatment market by crop type.
• Identify driving and restraining factors for the global seed treatment market.
• Make available the most current and reliable information on the market size.
• Estimate the global supply and demand scenario broken down by applications and regions.
• Estimate the growth rate in demand.
• Estimate the projected global supply and demand scenario over the next five years and to analyze it by application as well as by crop type.
• Identify recent developments, alliances, joint ventures, and mergers and acquisitions in the global seed treatment market.

Projections for seed treatment use will be offered for geographical regions including North America (U.S., Canada, Mexico); South America (Brazil, Argentina); Europe (France, Germany, U.K., Italy); the Asia-Pacific region (China, India, Australia, Japan), and the rest of the world (South Africa, Russia).

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

Low-cost crop protection and rising prices of genetically modified (GM) crops, as well as a rising world population and increasing food requirements are driving the demand for seed treatment. The seed treatment market encompasses a variety of products being used by seed companies and growers for coating seed in order to safeguard seed and improve crops by controlling the population of seed-borne and soilborne pathogens.

Seed treatment offers several advantages:
• Seed safety: Seed companies can easily treat in a single day seed valued in excess of $1 million.
• Efficiency: Soilborne seedling disease control and soilborne insect control.
• Application technology: equipment, formulations, coating and seed treatment application centers.

This report is designed to cover aspects of technology, demand trends, opportunities and investment levels. It examines the worldwide commercial applications of the seed treatment market and the market penetration of chemical versus nonchemical seed treatment.

SCOPE OF REPORT

This market report organizes information from diverse sources into a cohesive unit that includes evolution of seed treatment, equipment, technologies, application and stages in commercial seed production. Conventional seeds, genetically modified (GM) seeds, and the seed treatment market are explored.

BCC analyzed key applications, crop types and regions to determine present and future seed treatment market status and forecasted growth from 2012 through 2018. In this report, we also discuss industry structure and market strategies, patent evaluation, and market driving forces.

INTENDED AUDIENCE

This report will be of particular interest to seed treatment, chemical, pesticide, seed, and seed coating manufacturers, as well as traders, distributors, and suppliers of pesticide and seed. It will also be of high interest to professionals within governments and regulatory agencies and associations, as it will help them to understand the scope and pace of seed treatment as it continues to expand in the market.

METHODOLOGY

A top-down approach was used to estimate the market sizes of global seed treatment and its types. The key players in the global seed treatment market were identified through secondary research, and their market revenues were determined through primary and secondary research. This included study of the annual reports of top market players and interviews with key opinion leaders such as CEOs, directors and marketing professionals. The size of the global seed treatment market was derived from the aggregation of the market shares of the major players. The forecast is based on an analysis of the market trends such as for crop production and consumption. The penetration of micro-markets was established through secondary sources and validated through primary sources.

With SaaS use rampant across organizations, how can IT departments track company data and maintain security? More and more departments are commissioning their own solutions and bypassing IT. A cloud environment is amorphous and powerful, allowing you to set up solutions for all of your user needs: document sharing and collaboration, mobile access, e-mail, even industry-specific applications. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Shawn Mills, President and a founder of Green House Data, discussed h...
For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducte...

Mobile, social, Big Data, and cloud have fundamentally changed the way we live. “Anytime, anywhere” access to data and information is no longer a luxury; it’s a requirement, in both our personal and professional lives. For IT organizations, this means pressure has never been greater to deliver meaningful services to the business and customers.
Container technology is sending shock waves through the world of cloud computing. Heralded as the 'next big thing,' containers provide software owners a consistent way to package their software and dependencies while infrastructure operators benefit from a standard way to deploy and run them. Containers present new challenges for tracking usage due to their dynamic nature. They can also be deployed to bare metal, virtual machines and various cloud platforms. How do software owners track the usag...
