Pakistan’s gross seed requirement is estimated at around 1.677 million tons for the year 2014, translating into an estimated market size of PKR 105 billion. Distribution of certified seed was recorded at 388,780 tons or around 23% of the seed requirement, with the residual demand met either by uncertified seed through the informal sector, or by farmers’ own saved seed from previous seasons. While seed requirement has been reported as constant over the past three years, distribution of certified seed has witnessed a growth in volume of around 7% CAGR over the same period. Despite various challenges including a weak regulatory enforcement mechanism and insufficient R&D, we feel that the sector has a positive outlook on the back of anticipated improvement in production and yield of major food crops, as well as continued interest and support from the Government. The Table of Contents provides a detailed outline of the scope of the Report.
