Chemical Quarterly - 2012 Q2

Commercial seed in China. Plow and plant today for harvesting tomorrow


Deloitte China Chemical sector team will release Chemical Quarterly on a regular basis to share forward-looking points-of-view on numerous business lines such as materials science, crop science and environmental science etc.

This edition focuses on China's commercial seed industry with in-depth analysis. The article indicates that China's commercial seed sector is attractive and promising, yet active Chinese players need to ramp up urgently R&D in biotech seeds to anticipate increasing penetration of foreign products despite high entry barriers.

Key findings:

  • Growing market demand, with low penetration of biotech seeds
  • Highly fragmented industry with consolidation underway
  • R&D as the key lever for Chinese players to capture future value
