Category-Wise Insights

Why are Agriculture Off-Highway Engines Experiencing High Sales?

According to Fact.MR, demand for off-highway engines for agriculture is anticipated to expand significantly, clocking a CAGR of over 6% from 2021-2031. Increased mechanization of farming practices is leading to its enhanced uptake. Several players are active in this domain.

For instance, Cummins offers a broad range of agriculture engines, ranging from 2.8 to 19 liters. These engines are tailored to monitor farm performance, with power bulge and torque back up options available for tractor and other heavy equipment operations.

<50 HP Power Output to Hold the Largest Market Share?

Small electric off-highway vehicles typically employ motors with a power output of less than 50 horsepower. The top manufacturers of electric off-highway vehicles with 50 horsepower include CAT, Komatsu, Volvo CE, Hitachi Construction, John Deere, Sandvik, and Solectrac.

Compact excavators, small and compact loaders, farm tractors, and small dozers are all fitted with 50 horsepower motors. Construction vehicles with a power output of 50 horsepower are mostly employed for light construction. Based on these trends, Fact.MR expects the segment to account for nearly 60% of total demand.

Competitive Landscape

Prominent off-highway engine manufacturers are emphasizing on introducing low-emission producing engines, consistent with regional frameworks on curbing emission levels. Additionally, expansion strategies such as partnerships, collaborations and acquisitions are also relied upon.

  1. In 2017, Herero 4x4 selected FPT Industrial S.p.A to equip its fleet with the latter’s F1C Euro 6 engine and the 2840.6 FPT industrial gear for off-road applications. The engine offers high torque, regimen and reliability
  2. In October 2020, Cummins India initiated production of electronically controlled Cummins B4.5 engines with a power range of 121-200 horsepower. The new plant will initially have an annual production capacity of 30,000-50,000 engines, but it is geared to expand in the future.
