Grass seeds are known to be small, pointy seeds that are attached to new grass grown. They are light tan and can range from a quarter of an inch to 3 quarters of an inch in size, depending on the variety.  Grass seeds are known to have quick germination, which allows them to quickly grow roots and shoots on the field.


The global grass seeds market is expected to witness an increase in growth during the forecasted period, due to the increasing awareness of the benefits that grass seeds provide to the soil and land.

Market Drivers:

  • Benefits of grass seed: The grass crop is known for a wide range of benefits and is widely planted throughout several areas, which include golf courses, parks, household yards, and many others. The grass crop is known for the conservation of land and is relatively inexpensive, readily available, and easy to grow. The several types of benefits mentioned by one of the leading grass seed production companies, All Native Seeds LLC, include:
  • Reduction of soil erosion: The increase in the prevalence of agriculture and human interference led to high levels of soil erosion. Practices such as deforestation, overgrazing and the use of pesticides and other chemical products have led to an increase in erosion damage to the soil, which further increased the demand for grass seeds in the market. The grass crop helps bind the soil and acts as a barrier against harmful weather conditions due to the fibrous roots that grow quickly to keep the soil in place with efficiency. Grass is also known to contribute to carbon sequestration by adding more organic carbon into the soil, which helps retain the carbon and other beneficial nutrients in the soil.
  • Improved Water Quality: The increasing usage of fertilizers and chemical sprays has damaging effects on the waterways, severely damaging the water supply and causing water pollution and bacterial growth that are dangerous to humans and animals. Grass helps reduce runoff and further contamination by being able to readily absorb nitrogen, nitrate, phosphorous, and other nutrients that are found in various pesticides.
  • Improved Wildlife habitats: Native season grass is known for providing habitat to many species of wildlife, covering the majority of the North American region and housing over 800 native animal and plant species. Grass is known to provide food, shelter, and space for various species to grow in the habitat, which include rabbits, turkeys, pheasants, and many other birds and small mammals known to be in grassland habitats.
  • Economic Benefits: Grass crop cultivation is known to be simple, and inexpensive and adds protection to the land being cultivated. It is a widely available and low-cost seed, making it an ideal option for preserving the soil quality and water supply.

Key Players:

  • Royal Barenbrug Group: A global leader known for the production of grass seeds with applications in livestock farming, recreation, sports, and horse husbandry.
  • The Scotts Company LLC: A company known for the manufacturing, marketing, and supply of lawn and garden products, which include fertilizers, plant foods, mulches, pest controls, grass seeds, and bird food.

Regional Analysis:

The North American region is expected to witness significant growth in the grass seed market during the forecasted period of 2024-2029. The factors that influence the market growth are the relevance of golf in the region, and the increasing growth of recreational activities, which include park activities. Grass seeds play a major role in the aesthetic and enhancement of the soil and ground quality in the area. Grass seeds have a wide range of benefits, which range from economic benefits to improved soil quality by reducing soil erosion. The United States is well known for its golf activities and has a large population that plays golf. The National Golf Foundation states that around one-third of the total US population over the age of 5 have played golf, followed golf on television or online, read about the game, or listened to a golf-related podcast in 2023, which accounts for an estimated 123 million people and an increase of 30% from 2016. Among the 123 million, 26.6 million people have been accounted for playing on a golf course. The number of new players that played golf on a golf course accounted for 3.4 million, which significantly increased the growth of the golf industry. Golf courses make use of the majority of the grass seeds in the market since grass is considered a major component in the sport of golf. Due to the several benefits of grass, the demand for grass seeds will be expected to increase along with the growth of the sport in the market.

Furthermore, the increasing park visitation boosts the market growth in the region. Parks contribute to the increase in the growth of grass seeds since they are known to provide improved soil quality and habitat in an area. As per the National Park Service, an estimated 312 million (311,985,996) recreation visits were recorded in 2022, which is a significant increase in growth from 237,064,332 visits in 2020. 38% of the total park visitations accounted for recreation parks, where grass content is significantly high. The increase in the number of park visitations and the growing relevance of golf will, therefore, drive the grass seed market growth during the forecasted period.

Market Developments:

  • March 2023: The Royal Barenbrug Group announced the launch of their new subsidiary in South Africa, owning several subsidiaries in all 6 continents over the world. This launch allowed the company to have a partnership with local partners and create strong synergies with their worldwide network of plant breeding, seed production, marketing and sales.
