The growing use of molecular breeding has also been expanding the revenue potential in the market. The agricultural sector's focus on enhancing crop production is a key trend bolstering the prospects in the molecular breeding market.
Plant breeding is estimated to have lucrative growth during the forecast period. With the increasing global concern on food security and rising demand for crops in various industries, there has been an increasing need to bridge the supply-demand gap, owing to which the demand for crops with the desired traits has been rising among the plant breeders. The growth of the molecular breeding market is primarily driven by the increasing investment in Agri genomics research, leading to the adoption of advanced crop-yielding tools across the globe. The technological advancement in molecular biology has further decreased the prices of molecular biology products, which in turn, is increasing the adoption rate of the molecular breeding process in the agricultural sector.
However, the high cost associated with molecular breeding compared to conventional breeding techniques is a major factor that will pose a major challenge to the market's growth, the need for more necessary infrastructural facilities and a lack of technical skills. Especially in underdeveloped economies, it will further slow the market growth.
Market Segmentation: Marker-assisted selection segment held a highest market revenue share in the year 2021
The marker-assisted selection segment is expected to dominate the market with a nearly YY% share in the global molecular breeding market in 2021. The growth is accredited to the growing awareness and adoption of genomic selection in the developed and emerging economies of the North American and European regions, such as the US, Germany, and the UK. There are several factors involved in driving the segmental growth, such as its high efficiency and low cost in increasing yield, which in turn, is marking a transition in the molecular breeding process.
Geographical Penetration: North America the dominating region during the forecast period.
North America is likely to have a huge demand owing to the wide-scale application of molecular breeding techniques on crops such as corn and soybean, coupled with the favorable regulations by the US government toward the application of biotechnology in agriculture. For instance, on 25 July 2022, cassava is a popular cash crop in Nigeria that breeders are working to improve. Similar to a sweet potato, it has tuberous roots. On the outside, it may look like a sweet potato. Root dry matter is traditionally measured by weighing root pieces before and after they are dried in an oven. Although this method is accurate, it is time-consuming and labor-intensive when processing roots from an entire field trial. The researchers explored using a low-cost handheld near-infrared spectrometer to make this process faster. In their study, they successfully developed and tested this new method for predicting root dry matter content. The new method will also reduce the number of samples dried in an oven.
The regional market is also making high strides due to the utilization of molecular breeding in increasing yield. For instance, on 3 October 2022, to find a way to help cotton farmers, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Uzbek scientists, some U.S. universities, and others in the cotton industry teamed up. It provided an opportunity to aggressively address the Fusarium wilt problem and protect the cotton industry in both countries. The scientists worked together to find a solution to reduce the vulnerability of the cotton crop to the fungus. These groups strengthened collaborations with a common goal: quickly identifying resistant sources to the disease so they could be intercrossed to develop improved varieties of Pima cotton. The research teams developed new Pima cotton germplasm lines resistant to the disease by crossing varieties from Uzbekistan and the USDA's cotton germplasm collections. Germplasm is often referred to as a living genetic resource that assists breeders in advancing the diversity of a crop. Crops commonly come in the form of seeds or plant tissue.
Asia-Pacific region will score the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Growing awareness among the farmers about benefits of molecular breeding, increasing personal disposable income and surge in the expenditure for research and development proficiencies are some other important factors fostering the growth of this region. Moreover, the Asia-Pacific region is supposed to experience a signific expansion rate during the conjecture period. Increased awareness of the benefits of molecular breeding among breeders is predicted to drive call during the foreseen period due to breeder adoption of molecular technology. The surge in investments in countries such as India, China and Thailand will boost the molecular breeding market in the Asia-Pacific region.

For instance, on 13 June 2022, Peas and Lentils invested in root system development differently. The finding that different root systems would lead to higher crop yields went against the grain. The prevailing pattern was that a "deep but lean" root system would benefit most crops in semi-arid areas. That may have been because wheat plants with deep root systems had access to water deeper in the soil. Yet, the leanness of the root system meant the plants hadn't invested too many resources in the roots, allowing for higher grain yields. As per a Researcher at the University of Saskatchewan, Breeders are now looking to identify genes or genetic regions in lentils and peas associated with robust root trait data. That could be a game changer for introducing root traits in breeding programs.
COVID-19 Impact: Positive impact on the global molecular breeding market
The COVID-19 pandemic could have a short-term impact on market expansion. Still, it is likely to drive investment in organic products as part of a broader shift towards food security and sustainable agricultural production and ensure supply chains. It should spark interest in new product formulations for biopesticides and biostimulants. According to FAO, in Nepal, the lockdown impacted the breeding of Common carp, Silver carp, Bighead carp and grass carp. Some disruptions in fish feed have also been mentioned. In the Philippines, the lockdown was in effect on the island of Luzon. Agriculture and fisheries production workers are essential for food security and are still operating. The transport of agriculture and fisheries products to markets is still ongoing with Government support. Wet and supermarkets are still open with restrictions. In some cities, food products are brought closer to consumers who do not have means of transport. The only issue reported so far relates to imported seeds.
