Seeds coatings, by category, is estimated to hold the largest market share during the forecast period
The market for agricultural coatings, by category, has been segmented into seed coatings, fertilizer coatings, pesticides coatings. Seed coating has been proposed as a promising tool for the inoculation of different crop seeds. The main types of seed coatings include seed dressing, film coating, and pelleting, which are used according to the purpose of application and the type of seed. Coating delivers the seed in a form that is larger, rounder, smoother, heavier, and more uniform as compared to the original seed. Materials such as pellets and colorants enable the grower to place the seed individually, with improved spacing and depth control. The use of seed coating also protects the seeds from cold soils and breaks down when the soil temperature is optimal for germination. These advantages have led to increased demand for seed coatings globally.
Polymers, by fertilizer coatings, is projected to grow at the second-highest CAGR in the agricultural coatings market during the forecast period
Polymers are the film coating formulations consisting of a thin, water-permeable polymer-based coating onto the seed or pellet. A thin layer of polymer smoothens the seed surface, helping in better flowability. It also influences water uptake of and adherence to chemical fungicide treatments. Film-coating increases the raw weight of the seed by 1% to 5%. The thin coating of polymer helps the additives stay on seeds and also to avoid dusting and pollution, to enhance the appearance of the seed. Leading agriculture universities have conducted the experiment of seed coating base polymer with different types of seeds for its compatibility under various circumstances. It was found that the seed germinated better with a significant increase in seed vigor, with the usage of a seed coating polymer. Super absorbent polymers and polymer gels are water-absorbing polymer materials with high water uptake potential. They improve the seed germination and also enhance the seedling growth, contributing to the farm’s success. These advantages have led to increased demand for the polymers segment of the seed coatings market.

The market for insecticides segment of pesticides coatings is projected to account for the largest share during the forecast period
The pesticide coatings market, by application, was dominated by insecticides. The research & development of pesticide coatings is mainly concentrated on insecticides, followed by herbicides. Due to this trend and the registration & commercialization of new varieties of microencapsulated insecticides, the insecticides segment is projected to grow at a high CAGR, and it occupies a large share in the market.
Insecticides are used to protect crops against the eggs and larvae of insects. Insecticides have various modes of action and can be classified into systemic, contact, and plant-incorporated. They are commonly used to maintain the quality of crop yield by protecting it from insects.
