Brazil Seed Market Overview and Size
Steady growth was observed in Brazilian agriculture majorly due to increased levels of production and exporting of crops such as soybean, sugarcane, wheat and corn, among others. In addition to that, technological advancement and improved seeds have played a key role in increasing productivity and agricultural development. In Brazil, a dynamic seed industry is evident with the participation of the both private and state sectors in R&D through the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (EMBRAPA). The country is one of the largest agricultural exporters with agro-food exports accounting for 38.5% of the total exports value, compared with 7.3% across all countries in the year 2018. Seed market within Brazil was observed to grow at a positive CAGR both in terms of revenue and production volume during the review period of 5 years 2013-2018.
Brazil Seed Market Segmentation
By International and Domestic Players: Numerous companies have international profiles and seek to exploit the Brazilian seed market. This is often done so that the international companies acquire local companies thus, leading to a higher share in the year 2018. One of the great advantages of Brazil as compared to other developing countries is the existence of several different research institutions in the agricultural and human health sectors, qualified to act as vectors for the development of modern biotechnology such as EMBRAPA. Hence, foreign companies find it easy to acquire or merge with already established companies in order to reduce the administration and transaction costs in Brazil.
By Type of Seeds (Vegetable and Non-Vegetable Seeds): Vegetable seeds include crops such as bitter gourd, cabbage, radish, cucumber, eggplant, hot pepper, leafy vegetables, onion, papaya, carrot, okra, pumpkin, ridge gourd, patola, sitao, snap bean, sweet corn, sweet pepper, tomato and watermelon. The market includes the domestic sales of locally produced seeds and imported seeds. In 2018, the major non-vegetable seeds being sold in Brazil were Soybean and Cotton. The industry offers different hybrids to farmers and helps them to achieve better productivity, now with lesser water. Thus, farmers can plant crops even when they may be facing situations such as drought or other similar conditions.
By Type of Vegetable Crop (Tomato Seeds, Watermelon and Other Melon Seeds, Onion Seeds, Potato Seeds, Chili Seeds and Others): Tomatoes in Brazil are processed into a wide variety of products including paste, pulp and other more specialized sauces. The segment has been growing at a positive CAGR and is majorly produced in Sao Paulo, Minas Gerais and Goiás and other Central regions of Brazil. The remaining market share was collectively captured by watermelon, melon, onion, potato, chili seeds and others during the year 2018.
By Type of Technology (Hybrid and Open Pollinated) in Vegetable Seeds: Hybrid vegetable seeds have dominated in terms of revenue, generated by market players from the sales of various kinds of vegetable crop seeds in Brazil during 2018. Farmers generally prefer hybrid seed owing to better yield, higher resistance to diseases and various other features. Additionally, it was observed that major seed manufacturing companies are focusing on hybrid seeds in Brazil. The remaining market share was captured by open pollinated seeds in 2018.
By Type of Non-Vegetable Seeds (Soybean Seeds, Corn Seeds, Cotton Seeds and Others): Soybean seed segment dominated Brazil non-vegetable seed industry as the country was observed amongst the top three soybean producing nations in the world and produced 3.1 million tons during 2018. Bayer, Donmario, Syngenta, TMG, Corteva and BASF were the major producers of soybean seeds in Brazil. The remaining market share was captured by corn seeds, cotton seeds and others during 2018.
By Type of Technology (GMO, Hybrid and Open Pollinated Seeds) in Non-Vegetable Seeds: GMOs are the type of seeds that currently dominate the non-vegetable seeds market within Brazil in terms of revenue. These seeds have been manipulated by using bio-technology in order to increase their productivity, yield, resistance to disease or any other favorable such trait. The remaining market was collectively captured by other segments.
By Region (Bahia, Goias, Mato Grosso Do Sul, Mato Grosso, Parana, Rio Grande Do Sul and Others): Goias region established itself as market leader by region for most of these years. The region is well known for having many food-processing industries. The development of these industries is likely due to the high amount of cattle in the region. Since non-vegetable crops are used mostly as feed for cattle or poultry, it follows that the demand for the same would be high. Some of the major crops grown in the region include sugarcane, Tomato, Soybeans, Cotton and others. The remaining market share was collectively captured by Bahia, Mato Grosso Do Sul, Mato Grosso, Parana, Rio Grande Do Sul and others during the year 2018.
Comparative Landscape in Brazil Seeds Market

There are multiples players (including foreign and domestic/local) operating within the country as of 2018. Competition prevailing in the market was primarily due to providing almost similar types of seeds by multiple players. Other parameters on the basis of which companies compete in the Brazil seed industry include technology, price, quality, distribution network, range of products and others.
Brazil Seeds Market Future Outlook and Projections
The demand for seeds within Brazil is further expected to be driven primarily by the strategies of different international companies who are planning to expand their market share in Brazil during the forecast period 2019E-2023E. The emphasis on innovation, research and development through heavy investment especially in the crops of corn, soybean, tomato, melon, chili, onions and other major vegetable and non-vegetable crops is anticipated to support the revenues of the players offering seeds for producing crops in the Brazil region. Larger players cater to the growing requirements of farmers with improved qualities of GM, hybrid and open-pollinated seeds. The market in Brazil is also expected to gain consolidation as a number of mergers and acquisitions are taking place between large players in the country and abroad. The proportionate share of domestic players is further expected to decline, owing to rising numbers of farmers shifting to the use of branded seeds with improved quality to get better yield, which is usually provided by international / global players.
