Organic seed sales are predicted to achieve a value of USD 10.8 billion in 2032, according to a new FMI analysis, with a CAGR of roughly 8.7% through the end of 2032. Farmers’ markets and CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) programs are cropping up all over the world to better connect consumers to the farms and farmers who source their food, which is having a good impact on the organic seed industry in many countries.
The National Farmers’ Market Directory’s interface was changed in 2013 to stimulate visitors and the development of real-time data-driven cellphone apps and other goods. Users can look up markets by zip code to learn about their hours of operation, location, available products, and payment options.
More than 4,000 farmers’ markets have been permitted to accept SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) vouchers, boosting access to fresh fruit and nutritious meals while also driving up organic seed sales.
Positive government efforts to promote organic farming could also help the organic seed market develop. Government programs like the National Food Security Mission, Paramparagat Krishi Vikas Yojana, and the National Food Security Mission, for example, are projected to boost organic agriculture in India. This creates a substantial growth opportunity for the market.
The following are the key takeaways from the Organic Seed Market Study:
- Because of a significant shift in consumers’ views toward healthy lifestyles and eating habits, which has raised the demand for organic food and drinks, the organic seed market in North America is predicted to rise at a rate of around 1% between 2022 and 2032.
- According to the new European Organic Regulation 2018/848, derogations for the use of untreated non-organic seed will be phased out by 2036, promoting the organic seed market in the region.
- public and private financing for organic plant breeding and other organic seed research have increased by USD 22 million in just the last five years.
“To introduce new goods and gain a competitive advantage, key market players are investing heavily in R&D.” Companies are also exploring techniques like collaboration, acquisitions, mergers, and partnerships to expand their client base and increase revenues,” according to an FMI lead analyst.
