The analysts forecast global genetically modified seeds market to grow at a CAGR of 9.83% during the period 2016-2020. According to the genetically modified seeds market report, premium pricing of non-GM food products is one of the major growth drivers for the global GM seeds market. Although the population today is more health-conscious, the purchasing decision of non-GM foods is often based on price. It is estimated that more than 68% of all primary grocery shoppers are not willing to pay a higher price for non-GM foods, whereas only 11% were willing to pay more. Over half of the consumers in the US have concerns about GM food products, but they are not sure about the health effects. It is expected that with the continuous increase in the pricing of non-GM food products, consumers will switch to GM food products. This is because the pricing is reasonable, and the health effects are unclear to most consumers.

The growth of the market can be accredited to the rise in adoption of biofuels. Biofuels are made up of energy crops such as wheat, soybean, sugarcane, and corn. Governments of different countries in APAC and Africa are also trying to reduce the use of conventional fuels and encourage the use of biofuels. As a result, farmers in these regions have increased the use of biofuel crops for maximum yields. In 2015, the global genetically modified seeds market was dominated by North America with a market share of around 30%.

North America will continue to dominate the genetically modified seeds market during the forecast period and is likely to occupy around 30% of the total market share by 2020. The growing adoption of biotechnology in agricultural practices is one of the latest developments in the North American market. With various advancements in GM seeds, this market has become innovative and is providing solutions to farmers for several environmental conditions like drought, salinity, and disease stress that affect the yield and production of many crops.
