Sorghum is a grass family genus with roughly 25 species of flowering plants (Poaceae). Some of these plants are farmed as cereals for humans, while others are used in animal pastures. In the realm of food, sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) is a lesser-known grain. Sorghum is an essential crop that has long played a significant part in some diets, despite being overshadowed by more well-known grains (or cereals). Several organizations, institutes, and associations are stepping up their efforts in several countries to promote the use of sorghum seeds. The Sorghum Seed Consortium, for instance, was formed in March 2017 by NARS institutions, agricultural universities, the Indian Institute of Millets Research (IIMR), Maharashtra State Seed Corporation (Mahabeej), and Maharashtra State Seed Certification Agency (MSSCA), as well as the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), to promote the distribution of improved cultivar seeds to thousands of farmers in Maharashtra, India. The Sorghum Seed Consortium has replaced the historically popular post-rainy sorghum cultivar M 35-1 (Maldandi) with enhanced cultivars to boost agricultural yield. The United Sorghum Checkoff Program was formed by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) under the jurisdiction of the Commodity, Promotion, Research, and Information Act of 1996 to oversee the creation of checkoff groups. Global Sorghum and Sorghum Seeds Market size was $11.8 billion by 2021. Furthermore, it is poised to grow at a CAGR of 3.8% over the forecast period of 2022-2027. 

The United Sorghum Checkoff Program may be able to assist sorghum growers in increasing their earnings via research, education, and promotion. Existing sorghum markets and applications are preserved and increased as a result of this program. Several market rivals are developing high-yielding improved sorghum seeds. A variety of organizations and institutes assist farmers who produce sorghum seeds. In addition, the government is stepping up its efforts to look into using sorghum seeds for biofuel production. The California Energy Commission, for example, provided USD 3 million in matching funds to Calgren Renewable Fuels, Aemetis, and Pacific Ethanol to investigate sorghum as an ethanol source. This financing is estimated to help ethanol businesses expand sorghum as an ethanol feedstock since it requires less water to grow.

According to Carpita, corn, which has been designed to produce a high volume of seed, requires a lot of nitrogen. Sorghum, on the other hand, is genetically manipulated to increase cellulose while reducing seeds, cutting inputs, and increasing market growth. The cholesterol-lowering properties of sorghum also aid in the prevention of blood clots, arteriosclerosis, and plaque formation. The whole grain provides antioxidants in addition to minerals including magnesium, iron, and vitamins B and E. As a result, it helps to avoid a wide range of cardiovascular disorders. Sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] is Africa's fifth most important grain crop, predominantly farmed in temperate and tropical areas. Since WWII, sorghum has been grown across Europe, and it is almost solely utilized as animal feed. It is a significant human food crop in Europe and other parts of the world, according to the UN's Food and Agricultural Organization.

Market Drivers for Global Sorghum and Sorghum Seeds Market

Owing to sorghum capacity to adapt well to dry circumstances is encouraging market growth

Growing demand for sorghum seeds as a result of an increased number of farmers sowing sorghum seeds is driving the sector. The global area planted to sorghum has expanded by 66 percent in the last 50 years, according to the Agricultural Marketing Resource Center (AgMRC) Organization. Farmers sow sorghum seeds since they can resist drought, soil toxicity, and temperature variations better than other forage crops. Sorghum seeds can be planted in regions where there is a lack of moisture. Seeds of sorghum flourish in dry, low-fertility environments. Seeds from sorghum provide better yields than seeds from other fodder crops. In addition, there is a growing need for green fuel and cheaper, higher-quality animal feed. It also encourages development in water-scarce areas since it requires less water to flourish. The development of hybrid sorghum cultivars with unique traits is projected to improve future sorghum seed demand. Sorghum is best known for its use in biofuel, but it also plays an important role in human and animal feed, as well as a variety of industrial uses, owing to improvements in manufacturing processes and chemical and physical qualities. Hence, the market is propelling owing to its capacity to adapt well to dry circumstances and biofuel production.

The increased usage of sorghum seeds in daily diet is assisting the expansion of the sorghum and sorghum seed market

The growing usage of sorghum seeds in common meals is driving the global sorghum seed market. Sorghum is being utilized in industries like floral arrangements, fencing, construction material, pet food, and other applications as a consequence of its versatility, which is a significant driving force for the worldwide sorghum market. To be competitive in the market, manufacturers are providing clients with unique sorghum-based products. To take advantage of dry terrain with limited water resources, countries all over the world are investing in the growth of the sorghum seed sector. Similarly, the private sector is encouraged to invest in sorghum seeds because of the high-profit margins on seed sales. Thus, increased investments and use in daily diet are driving the market.

R&D Investment

According to Elsevier, 2020, R&D for sorghum had a return of $ 38–59 for every dollar invested in Tanzania, Uganda, and Ethiopia countries. The investment intends to decouple the link between height, yield, and lodging in order to boost sorghum's water-limited output potential while minimizing grain-fill yield loss. Breeders are able to chase yield harder with less danger of lodging as a result of the information and tactics established.

The Major Players in this Market Include

The major companies in the Global Sorghum and Sorghum Seeds Market include; Advanta seeds, Nuseed, Archer Daniels-midland company, Richardson seeds, Ltd., Mabele fuels pty (Ltd). In October 2021, Crystal Crop Protection Ltd and Bayer CropScience have agreed to buy Cotton, Mustard, Pearl Millet, and Grain Sorghum hybrids in India. 

The market for Global Sorghum and Sorghum Seeds is growing owing to sorghum's tolerance to climatic conditions and health advantages. Global Sorghum & Sorghum Seeds Market is projected to be hampered by the short shelf life of seeds.
