According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, “Forage Seed Market," The forage seed market was valued at $22,808.23 million in 2021, and is estimated to reach $44,186.14 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 7.02% from 2022 to 2031.

Forage seeds are the edible parts of plants widely utilized for livestock feeding. Alfalfa, clover, chicory, ryegrass, lablab, and fescue are some of the popular forage seeds in the global market. They are available at a lower price compared to other feeds, such as wheat bran and oil seed. These forage seeds are supplied to seed cultivators and conditioners for further processing and conditioning to get purified seeds with increased level of protein and energy. The demand for forage seed is majorly driven by their high nutrient content, which helps to improve lactation, reproduction, and health of livestock. In addition, forage seeds are widely used to enhance milk production globally. Economic benefits associated with cultivating forage seeds include improving soil health and business flexibility. These are further expected to drive the forage seed market. Irregular seed germination cycle, lack of favorable government policies for cereal crops, and insufficient funding in forage research are expected to hamper the market growth. Forage seed production does not involve addition of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides for growth and protection of forage crops. Forage-fed animals give healthier meat, and helps avoid obesity, cholesterol, cancer, fats, and hypertension. Thus, rise in demand for organic meat to maintain a healthy lifestyle creates lucrative opportunities for the forage seed market.

The product type alfalfa accounted for the highest share of the forage seed market in terms of revenue. The demand for alfalfa is on the rise due to its use in treating cholesterol, asthma, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, upset stomach, and thrombocytopenic purpura. It is also a rich source of vitamins A, C, E, and K4 and minerals such as calcium, potassium, phosphorous, and iron. This in turn is expected to offer lucrative opportunities to the alfalfa market during the forecast period. Increase in need for healthy animals coupled with growth in demand for organic meat, eggs, and milk is estimated to boost the market during the forecast period.
