Increasing Focus on Sustainable Agriculture to Favor Market Growth
The intensification of the movement towards adopting sustainable farming practices is feeding the organic planting seeds market growth as organic agriculture has the potential to strengthen the fight against global warming and climate. According to the US-based Rodale Institute, organic farms release 40% less carbon emissions and consume 45% less energy than conventional farms. Another study published in the Journal of Applied Ecology reveals that organic farms foster 30% more biodiversity compared to their conventional counterparts. Acknowledging this evidence, governments around the world are actively promoting the adoption of organic agriculture. For example, in Europe, Germany, Austria, and Finland have plans to devote 20% of their land area to organic farms while in South Asia Bhutan aims to turn 100% organic by 2020. In India, the north-eastern state of Sikkim declared itself 100% organic in 2016. With major economies implementing policies to go organic in the next few years, the demand for organic planting seeds is likely to skyrocket and broaden the horizons of this market.
Asia Pacific to Gain Prominence Backed by Supportive Government Policies
Asia Pacific is expected to lead the organic planting seeds market share in the foreseeable future owing to the formulation and implementation of policies favouring the adoption of organic farming. For example, the Indian state of Odisha is rolling out the Integrated Irrigation Project for Climate Resilient Agriculture to advance sustainable agriculture in the state. Furthermore, countries in the region are also steadily expanding the area under organic cultivation, which will propel the market in Asia Pacific.
