Agricultural Biotechnology: Emerging Technologies and Global Markets
The global market for agricultural biotechnology was $13.7 billion in 2011 and is estimated to grow to $14.4 billion in 2012, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.4%, to reach a forecast value of nearly $24.8 billion in 2017.
The study scope includes emerging agricultural biotechnology tools (DNA sequencing, biochips and RNA interference), synthetic biology-enabled products and transgenic seeds that are already commercial or forecast to be commercialized within the next five years.
BCC analyzes key technologies and products to determine present and future market status and forecasted growth from 2012 through 2017. We also discuss strategic alliances, industry structures, competitive dynamics, patent strategy and market driving forces. BCC also examines the agricultural biotechnology industry structure, including the main transgenic seed companies, and the role of strategic alliances from 2010 through 2012. The market for transgenic seeds by country and by crop type is presented.
