The main elixir of the whole agriculture industry is SEED-the most crucial input for agricultural production. Earlier, it was something natural, a source for continuous improvements and innovations that cannot be transacted or could be noticed in markets, but over a period it changed. Seeds became hybrid, as quality was justified by mere numbers. Hybrid seeds were brought in the race to produce more. Productivity, per acre, became the parameter. With the ever increasing demand for food grains due to the rising population, fluctuating supply of agricultural output, wildly swinging economy etc. are the contributing factors for the dire need to develop agri-science embedded tools and technology so as to meet with the future demands and tactfully deal with the challenges lying ahead. This report analyses the current industry scenario for the global seed market which is projected to grow with a CAGR of 1.5% for the period of 2012 to 2014.

The US is the largest market for seeds followed by China and France in terms of value as well as the area under cultivation. Netherlands is the top exporter and importer for vegetable crop seeds and US is the lead importer and exporter of flower seeds. The global biotech seed market has been growing with a fierce rate, spurred by the increasing demand for GM seeds.

Amongst the major ongoing trends in the Industry, one is market consolidation due to large number of mergers and acquisitions. Another is the prevailing monopoly of private players in the industry, especially in case of US wherein over 90% of the market for soya seeds is governed by a single corporation. The crucial developments in the industry include the uprising of the corporate seed distribution system, incorporation of more stringent laws and bylaws, and R&D related field trials in Africa. The top notch corporations holding the reins of the whole seed industry, particularly of the biotech seeds are 
Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta AG and Bayer Cropscience.

As of now, the major threats which the world is poised to face are the increasing levels of hunger, poverty, population, skyrocketing prices of the commodities and exploitation of small farmers. Taking into consideration the above mentioned threats, the factors which are driving the growth in the seed industry are the quick adoption of the crop technology, wide spread acceptance of the novel traits, evolution of the international seed trade and the valuable contribution in ensuring the food security all over the globe.

The report analyzes the global seeds market, focusing on the biotech seeds segment. The growth drivers and major issues facing the industry have been discussed. It also profiles the major players of the industry, along with a discussion of their key business strategies.

By combining SPSS Inc.’s data integration and analysis capabilities with our relevant findings, we have predicted the future growth of the industry. We employed various significant variables that have an impact on this industry and created regression models with SPSS Base to determine the future direction of the industry. Before deploying the regression model, the relationship between several independent or predictor variables and the dependent variable was analyzed using standard SPSS output, including charts, tables and tests.
