Will Start-ups Be Able to Cultivate a Name for Themselves in This Industry?

“Indian Market Providing Superlative Incubation for New Entrants”

India is a leading name in the global agriculture industry and this makes it a highly lucrative market for agricultural machinery suppliers. The spending capacity of farmers in the country is limited, which limits the sales of advanced agricultural equipment and this is the issue that start-ups are expected to focus on over the coming years.

Mechanization of agricultural processes in India is nowhere near what other countries have and this is projected to create highly remunerative business scope for established as well as upcoming combine harvester companies in the future.

  • Akshaya Agri, a start-up founded in 2020 and based in India provides agricultural mechanization services and solutions for small farmers. The company aims to solve the challenges that act as a barrier to farm machinery and agricultural equipment adoption in India.
  • Sea6 Energy, a Bangalore-based start-up is focusing on the mechanization of ocean farming through its ‘Sea Combine’. Sea Combine is a catamaran that is capable of harvesting and replanting seaweed simultaneously. The company has launched a prototype at its seaweed farm located off the coast of Indonesia.

India is a relatively easy market for new entrants due to the absence of an organized agricultural equipment sector but is also rife with opportunities to explore and perfect business models that can then be expanded on a global level.

This new combine harvesters market research report by Fact.MR proffers a comprehensive assessment of how new developments by start-ups are influencing product standards and pricing trends on a global level.

How is North America Market Growth Being Driven?

“United States Extrapolated to Maintain Hegemony”

The United States accounts for significant combine harvester sales in the North American region owing to the scarcity of labor and high costs of labor in the agriculture industry. Rapid adoption of innovative and advanced tillage equipment is expected to create an attractive demand outlook for combine harvesters across the forecast period. Supportive government initiatives, the frequent launch of new combine harvester models, and the presence of key combine harvester manufacturers are other factors that could boost market development in the country through 2033.

Increasing focus of farmers on increasing productivity and profitability is also projected to boost shipments of combine harvesters in the country going forward. High production of corn in the country is projected to propel sales of corn harvesters in the country through 2033. However, changing prime rates and fluctuations in steel prices are expected to hamper combine harvester demand in the United States over the coming years.

Why is Japan a Bankable Market for Combine Harvester Manufacturers?

“Rising Adoption of Advanced Agricultural Techniques Offering Attractive Growth Scope”

Japan has only around 20% farmable land and the agriculture sector contributed merely 1% to the country’s GDP (Gross Domestic Product). The aforementioned facts could lead anyone to believe that Japan is not a lucrative market for agricultural machinery, but this is not the case.

The farmable land of the country is intensely utilized with most land being used to cultivate rice, which could bolster demand for rice reaper harvesters and harvester paddy cutting machines in the country over the coming years.

Growing adoption of vertical farming techniques in the country could boost demand for smart agricultural equipment and uplift demand for advanced combine harvesters that are specially designed for the aforementioned type of farming.
