Drivers & Restraints-

Growing Inclusion of Vegetables in Diet to Drive Market Expansion

Currently, numerous companies are developing hybrid vegetables to meet the needs of both farmers and consumers. These hybrids offer a variety of benefits, including extended shelf life, enhanced flavor, improved shape and color, higher yields, better taste, increased nutritional value, and greater adaptability. As a result, hybrid vegetable seeds are becoming more popular than non-hybrid varieties.

Furthermore, the increasing consumption of vegetables in diets is aiding in the fight against malnutrition. In many developing nations, the nutritional benefits of vegetables are seen as a cost-effective solution to address nutritional deficiencies. However, climate change poses a significant challenge to agricultural production globally and could hinder the growth of the vegetable seeds market in the future.
