Organic Seed Market Size & Trends

The global organic seed market size was valued at USD 3.41 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.2% from 2023 to 2030. Increasing organic food demand in the recent past is expected to drive the global organic seeds industry over the forecast period. Such trends have emerged due to the growing awareness regarding negative health impacts related to hazardous chemicals used in agriculture. Increasing environmental concerns regarding chemical utilization in conventional agriculture is a key factor that is presumed to aid organic farming, which in turn is presumed to assist the market in the near future. The favorable regulatory framework is another major factor that is expected to support market growth over the next seven years.

U.S. Organic Seed Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Initiatives taken by governments and agencies related to agriculture are presumed to play an important role in shaping the global industry over the forecast period. An increase in demand over the recent past is attributed to growing awareness regarding health benefits related to organic food consumption.

These food products have several superior characteristics such as high antioxidants and other nutritional values. These products are devoid of any exposure to chemicals such as fertilizers, pesticides, and insecticides, and are deemed healthier than their conventional counterparts.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the organic seed market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 35.5% in 2022 due to high organic food demand in these regions.

Asia Pacific and Central & South America cater to the growing organic food demand in the developed regions. The majority of the produce in the developing regions is exported to developed markets such as North America and Europe. Governments and agricultural agencies have taken multiple initiatives that include favorable policies and tax incentives to encourage organic farming. Such initiatives coupled with growing awareness regarding food benefits are expected to assist the regional market in the near future.

Product Insights

The vegetable seed segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 32.1% in 2022 and is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 14.4% during the forecast period.
