Global megatrends are driving the need for higher agricultural yields, creating strong tailwinds for innovative seed traits and biological pesticides and stimulants.World population growth, coupled with rising incomes, lead to consumption of higher-quality foods, including meat.

This, in turn, creates higher consumption of feed crops, including maize, soy and wheat. At the same time, the total acreage of arable land available for producing crops is under pressure from a range of forces, including growing populations, urbanization and global warming.

These global forces are creating leverage in the industry to increase productivity and crop yields.Biotechnology provides strategic tools to the agricultural industry to meet these market demands.

This report examines the role of these technologies in agriculture and quantifies their market impact.

Reasons for Doing the Study
Agriculture is a fundamental and strategic component for a country.As a result, agricultural technologies provide competitive geographic advantage and are highly desirable. 
Biotechnologies address the pressing industry need for higher crop yields and other desirable traits. Agricultural biotechnology is a key and growing component of the global agriculture industry and is thus of interest to a wide audience. 
This report seeks to provide a qualitative and quantitative description of the agricultural biotechnology industry so that emerging market opportunities can be identified and exploited by the reader.The report does this by examining the main product applications and markets, thereby helping companies to prioritize product opportunities and strategic opportunities. 
The report highlights key market and industry trends, as well as quantifying the main market segments, in order to help the reader better understand industry structure and changes occurring in the industry. 
Rapid changes in technology-intensive fields such as DNA sequencing, gene editing and synthetic biology are driving new products and applications in agriculture.These developments create unique market opportunities. 
This report analyzes these trends and their impact on future markets for agricultural products. 
Based on these market and technology dynamics, it is especially timely to examine the agricultural biotechnology industry.
