The global agriculture equipment market size was USD 148.41 billion in 2020. The market is projected to grow from USD 157.89 billion in 2021 to USD 253.28 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 7.0% during the 2021-2028 period. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with agriculture equipment witnessing a positive impact on demand across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a lower growth of 6.2% in 2020 compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

Agriculture equipment refers to the tools that farmers utilize to perform a particular agricultural operation. The adoption of automation in these tools is a growing trend. Agriculture machinery is equipped with IoT applications, GPS solutions, and others utilized in every vertical including, land development, threshing, harvesting, and soil preparation.

In addition to this, demand for agriculture tools is growing year on year. The governmental bodies provide the appropriate interest schemes to farmers by investing in their farm tools business. Moreover, the materialization of contract farming has also boosted market growth. Key players are concerned about endorsing gears approved by international standards such as ISO 25119 Series. It was developed by ISO technical committee ‘ISO/TC 23, Tractors and Machinery for agriculture and forestry, subcommittee SC19. These standards are acknowledged by a run for a longer time period and do not need any recovery time.

COVID-19 Impact: Moderate Impact to Boost Equipment Modernization

In March 2020, the world health organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 as a pandemic and forced most countries to bring an abrupt and unplanned shutdown of the economic activities due to the lockdown norms, social distancing practices, and pessimistic approach in the market. The pandemic has moderately affected the global agriculture equipment market share.

The extensive awareness regarding the application and benefit of these apparatuses over the recent past seems to have minimized the adverse effects of the COVD-19 outbreak. Additionally, the governmental bodies across the developing and developed countries have made hefty investments to strengthen the agro-economy thus, boosting the exports and imports businesses and modernization across the equipment types. Despite factory shutdowns and slowdown, the agriculture equipment witnessed strong growth attributed to strong crop production, good weather, and the need for equipment replacement.

On a long-term basis, the COVID-19 pandemic is estimated to have a positive effect on the global market. As per the multiple secondary sources, from the 2nd quarter of 2020, the demand for technologically advanced farm tractors and harvesters continued to grow and is further anticipated to witness strong growth. Moreover, innovation of digitally advanced products i.e., modernization and research & development operations, is holding the key to safeguarding dominant long-term growth of the market.

As a result, the adoption of these technologies is bolstering market growth.


Ease of Financing and Increased Government Initiatives to Fuel Market Growth

In recent years, governmental bodies across the globe have been offering low import duties, low-interest rates, and various initiatives to make the soil preparation and cultivation process efficient and faster. For instance, the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF) stated that, in FY2020, agriculture and allied sectors’ shares in gross value added (GVA) of India at present prices stood at 17.8 %. Moreover, a number of microfinance institutions and banks have been set up across all the regions for ease of availability of credit to procure agriculture machinery. A rise in income has enabled farmers to spend more on agriculture machinery.

These factors are ultimately boosting the agriculture equipment market growth across the globe.


Rapid Urbanization across the Globe is Impeding the Market Growth

Rapid urbanization across developed and developing countries has resulted in the loss of land that could be applied to grow crops or land lost that is efficient of being plowed. The declining farming area with the high cost of labor retention has slowed down the growth of this market.

Additionally, the growing demand in the construction sector in countries such as Singapore, the United States, Kuwait, Malta, Japan, China, Hong Kong, and others has resulted in shifting the focus of people towards a job and hence, lack of labor force to operate agriculture tools and gears.


By Equipment Type Analysis

Maximum Food Production in Short Time to Portray Strong Growth for Agriculture Tractor Segment

The equipment type segment is classified into agriculture tractors, soil preparation & cultivation, harvesting, crop processing & irrigation, spraying & handling equipment, and others.

The agriculture tractor is a major contributor in the market with the highest CAGR. It is attributed to the constant product development that is complimenting the maximum food production in a short time. Additionally, autonomous farm tractors and combines, i.e., tractors with harvesting machinery and tractors with plant protection machinery, are mostly utilized in preparing more land for farming, even in hilly areas.
