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.
