Special Report: Phillips McDougall supports the FAO with Global Seed Market Analysis

27 January 2020 Dr. Edward Oliver Jonathan Shoham

Phillips McDougall's consultancy team recently partnered with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations (UN), to provide them with a clear and comprehensive view of the global seed market. The report we provided outlined the sales and profitability of the global seed industry, detailing company performance (including public organisations where possible), by crop types. It highlights the range and distribution of seed companies, breaking them down by size, including;

  • Tier I companies being those 'large' players that have annual sales in excess of USD 500 million.
  • Tier II companies being those 'medium' players that have annual sales between USD 100 and USD 500 million.
  • Tier III companies being those 'smaller' players that have annual sales less than USD 100 million.

As per the FAO's 'International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture', the report aims to provide mutli-lateral access to seed market intelligence, enabling benefits to be shared across the globe.
