Historical Trends Vs. Future Market Outlook
Traditional farming, although reliable, requires a lot of time and effort. High labor costs associated with traditional farming methods and farm equipment has encouraged farmers to adopt modern methods of farming. Demand for effective and reliable farm management solutions is constantly rising. Suppliers are gaining immense profits from technological advances and implementation of artificial intelligence in farm equipment.
Autonomous farm equipment is gaining momentum across the globe due to its high efficiency in saving time and money in yielding, crop tracking, and field and soil analysis. As demand for driverless tractors, fully autonomous tractors, and well as partially autonomous tractors fitted with auto-steering and auto data collection systems grows, industry players can expect a surge in demand over the coming years.
Owing to the ongoing crisis caused by COVID-19, production and supply chain activities have seen a slump. Despite a temporary drop in demand from the agriculture sector due to the onset of COVID-19 in 2020, the industry has retained a positive outlook over the last five years from 2016 to 2020. Fact.MR expects growth of the market to be close to 10% CAGR through 2031.
What is the Commercial Potential of Autonomous Farm Equipment?
Automation of farm equipment offers several benefits, including precise and reliable operations, incessant operation regardless of weather or time, and long-term solutions for heavy and complex operations, including harvesting and ploughing.
When compared to traditional farm equipment, autonomous farm equipment saves time and cost in the yielding process, making this advanced equipment a preferable choice for farming procedures. Manufacturers are focused on introducing new and advanced models of autonomous equipment as technology continues to advance.
Which Recent Trends are Shaping Autonomous Farm Equipment Sales?
Demand growth for autonomous farm equipment is being aided by increasing emphasis on sustainable solutions, advanced technology, and operation-efficient farm equipment in many countries. Agriculture industry has witnessed several technological changes over the years, and manufacturers are still investing in research & development to enhance technologies.
Incorporation of artificial intelligence and IOT in agriculture is expected to shape the future of autonomous farm equipment. Usage of artificial intelligence has numerous benefits, including precision farming capabilities, advanced solutions for timely harvesting, optimal planting, soil management, and the use of predictive analysis to enhance quality crop production.
Autonomous farm equipment, especially fully and partial autonomous tractors, are undergoing drastic technological developments. These trends are expected to drive demand for autonomous farm equipment, globally.
