Seed Coating industry of India is largely domestically driven with majority demand of major seed manufacturers for seed coating polymers being met by domestic companies. Major seed manufacturers in the Industry such as Monsanto, Bayer, DuPont Pioneer and Syngenta demand significant quantities of seed coating materials from domestic players. These domestic players include Incotec, Little Polykote Centor India and others. Majority of materials in the market is supplied by these three players. Apart from these, Mahendra Overseas and Sampatti Industries are also emerging in the industry. As of FY’2016, the domestic market for seed coating materials is a niche market; however it is growing at a good pace due to India’s enhancing seed manufacturing industry.
Incotec and Centor India are importing raw materials from Netherlands, USA and Germany and manufacturing the final product in India. However, domestic suppliers of raw materials are growing which has impacted the import scenario in FY’2016. Cotton seeds generate the largest demand for seed coating materials in the country. In cotton seed, yield and germination capabilities deterioration takes place rapidly under ambient storage conditions. Film coating techniques have paved the way for controlling the seed decay during storage. Use of newer molecules protects the fungicides, insecticides and nutrients in the seeds. Therefore, large number of seed manufacturers in the industry prefers to coat seeds with polymers and other materials. Majority of cotton seeds are coated golden color in India.
According to Research Analyst, “the companies should register the company on online b2b directories mainly IndiaMart, TradeIndia, Global Sources and Alibaba to advertise and to market the products. Moreover, a new entrant should become a member of NSAI as it provides a seed coating materials manufacturers with the opportunities to interact with key persons throughout the Indian seed industry and helps them to reach out to number of clients by advertising on their publications.”
