Genetically modified organisms (GMO) soybeans have gained immense traction in the recent past, owing to their potential to alleviate hunger and poverty worldwide.
However, researchers from the Food and Agriculture Program have stated that real impacts of GMO soybean deserve in-depth assessment.
Amount of agricultural land utilized for producing GMO food such as GMO soybean has surged over the past few years, with majority of producers being situated in the U.S., Canada, India, Brazil and Argentina.
GMO soybeans have their genetic materials engineered via biotechnologies for engulfing enhanced and new characteristics such as drought tolerance, enhancement of certain nutrients, insect resistance and herbicide tolerance.
Benefits of utilizing biotechnologies for production of GMO soybeans include saving efforts & time and curtailing market risks for farmers, rather than enhancing productivity by improving yield.
Currently, demand for GMO soybeans is primarily driven by rapid adoption in animal feed as well as in the form of GMO soybean oil worldwide.
Although cultivating herbicide-tolerant soybean has lower risks to environment, the benefits are being restrained by herbicide resistance being developed in weeds.
GMO soybeans are one of the most utilized genetically modified plants across the globe, with majority of the applications in livestock feed and oil production. With demand for soybeans increasing globally as a protein source, GMOs hold potential benefits for producers.
According to Fact.MR, the global GMO soybean market will register a splendid 14.3% CAGR during the period 2017 to 2026.
Approximately 600,000,000 metric ton of GMO soybean will be sold around the world by 2026-end.

In terms of volume as well as value, North America will remain dominant in the global GMO soybean market. GMO soybeans already have high popularity among North American consumers.
GMO soybeans in North America have improved resistance to insects and weeds, which in turn helps the farmers to boost productivity.
Structure of some government insurance programs complement the productivity by providing farmers with more incentives for planting GMO seeds such as those of GMO soybeans.
The European Commission has approved an array of GMO products such as GMO soybeans, although the pace of approvals has been relatively slow. European livestock and feed manufacturing industry has a keen interest in authorization of GMO soybean imports, as soybean is considered to be a source of high-quality and protein-rich feed. Europe will remain the second largest market for GMO soybean, in terms of volume as well as value.
Food is expected to remain the largest application of GMO soybean, in terms of value. Revenues from sales of GMO soybean for application in food are projected to account for nearly half market share by 2026-end. Biodiesel and feed will also remain lucrative applications of GMO soybean.
In terms of value, direct sales are anticipated to be the fastest expanding sales channel for GMO soybean, closely trailed by modern trade.
These two sales channel will spearhead the global market for GMO soybean during the forecast period, in terms of revenues.
Based on trait, stacked (HT+IT) and herbicide tolerant GMO soybean will remain sought-after in the market, with revenues collectively estimated to surpass US$ 320,000 Mn by 2026-end.
