Regional Snapshots

North America is among the most lucrative markets for agricultural biotechnology. The growing inclination of farmers toward modern farming methods is expected to boost the adoption of respective agricultural biotechnologies.

The immigrant population is increasing considerably in Canada since past few years. Canada’s population is growing at almost double the pace of each G7 country. Approximately 4/5th of the 1.8 million population rise from 2016 to 2021 was attributable to the new arrivals in Canada, either as temporary or permanent immigrants. When the COVID-19 pandemic slowed the movement of people across various regions, almost 185,000 permanent immigrants arrived in Canada in FY 2020. Thus, the rising population in Canada is creating immense scope for the food sector. The rising population in Canada influences the need for fruits & vegetables in the country. Thus, the growing population in the North American region creates immense scope for the latest agricultural biotechnology tools.

Biotechnology has a significant role in the production of soybeans. Almost 81% of the world's soybeans are biotech and this allows the producer to grow soybeans more profitably. China’s Soybean cropland accounted for about 25.2 million acres (10.2 million hectares) in 2022, which is a substantial rise of almost 1.82 million hectares, or about 21% as compared to 2021. Thus, the growing production of soybean in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region is driving the agricultural biotechnology market growth in the region.

The Biotechnology Department of the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research conducted preliminary research on the use of biotechnology for growing date palm trees. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s regulations permit the importation of biotech plant products. But these imported biotech plant products are needed to be labelled in case they contain over 1% genetically engineered (GE) plant ingredients. Thus, ongoing research activities along with favourable regulations are expected to promote the development of the agricultural biotechnology market in the Middle East region.

The countries in the African continent are still in the developing stage and are not as developed as the countries in the West. Thus, the adoption of agricultural biotechnology in the African region is estimated to take place at a relatively slow rate. The awareness about the benefits of agricultural biotechnology is increasing in the Latin America region. The agricultural biotechnology market in the Latin America region is expected to grow considerably.

Market Dynamics:

Market Driver: Rising population all over the world

The increasing population all over the world is boosting the requirement for nutritious food.

On the basis of Worldometer elaboration of the latest United Nations data, the population of the United States was 336,343,250 as of the 6th of April 2023. The population of the United States of America was 331,002,651 by mid-2020.

The population of Australia rose from 25,499,884 in mid-2020 to 26,314,341 in April 2023. The population is forecast to reach about 29,410,244 by 2035.

Based on the Worldometer elaboration of the latest UN data, the population of Brazil is 216,717,274. This is a considerable rise from the count of 212,559,417 in mid-2020.

The world population is predicted to account for 8,548,487,400 by 2030. Thus, the rising population is creating remarkable demand for enhanced agricultural biotechnology required to grow nutritious fruits & vegetables.

Market Restraint: Unfavourable Agricultural Conditions in a Few Nations

Due to limited water resources and harsh climate, commercial agriculture in Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is limited. Owing to this fact, the mentioned countries are majorly dependent on imports of semi, raw, and fully processed food products to meet about 90% of their food requirements. Extreme weather conditions and the unavailability of natural resources prominently make agricultural production difficult in some parts of the Middle East region. Low rainfall and drought have severely decreased the farmer's capability to produce crops in the Middle East region. Thus, unfavourable agricultural conditions in some countries restrain the agricultural biotechnology market growth to some extent.
