Accelerated Adoption of Précised Technologies is Laying Foundation for Future Success
The adoption of technologies including mechanized IoT implementation, AI-based equipment, GPS enabled equipment, and flying drones are leading the agriculture equipment market trends. Agriculture equipment is now more advanced than ever and is influencing the manufacturers to develop products that could meet the end-users demand. Mechanized equipment is controlled by remote devices through the integration of IoT that help to reduce the operational cost and relative operational time.
Sensors provide accurate data about the soil and climatic conditions that help farmers to yield the crop accordingly. Moreover, Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology has led to the implementation of robotics in agriculture such as autonomous tractors, ground-based sensors, etc. that helps in producing food at reasonable costs. This technology has immensely boosted the digitalization in agriculture sector. For instance, in September 2017, Mahindra and Mahindra introduced driverless tractor in India. The tractor is equipped with autosteer - a GPS based technology that enables it to travel along a straight line.
Ease of Financing and Increasing Government Initiatives to Bolster the Market Growth
In recent years, the governmental bodies across the globe are offering low import duties, low interest rates, and various initiatives to make soil preparation and cultivation process efficient and faster. For instance, in 2018, the World Bank Group invested approximately USD 6.5 billion in IBRD/IDA commitments in agriculture sector. IBRD stands for ‘The International Bank for Reconstruction and Development’, whereas IDA stands for ‘The International Development Association.’ Government support is one of the reasons driving agriculture mechanization across the globe. Moreover, in 2018-19, India has spent near about 57,000 crores in the agriculture sector and allied industries to develop the financial system in the sector. Furthermore, number of microfinance institutions and banks has been setup across all the regions for ease of availability of credit to procure agriculture machinery. Rising incomes in developed countries have enabled farmers to spend more on agriculture machineries. These factors are ultimately boosting the market outlook of agriculture equipment across the globe.
Emergence of Contract Farming to Swell the Market
Contract farming is anticipated to bolster this market, enabling farmers to buy farm equipment such as combine harvester, zero – turn mover, tractor, etc. on rent. Contract farming has also enabled farmers to get the benefits of training and financing with the contractors. It is expected to facilitate the adoption of automated farming practices.
Rapid Urbanization across the World to be the Inhibiting Factor for Market Growth
Rapid urbanization across developed and developing countries has resulted in loss of land that can be utilized to grow crops or loss of land that is capable of being ploughed. This type of land in known as arable land. The declining area of arable land with high cost of labor retention has slowed down the growth of this market. Moreover, growing demand in construction sector in countries such as Singapore, the U.S., Kuwait, Malta, Japan, China, Hong Kong, etc. has resulted in shifting the focus of people towards job and hence, there is a lack of labor force to operate agriculture equipment.

Agriculture Tractors Segment to Generate Maximum Revenue
The equipment type segment is classified into agriculture tractors, soil preparation & cultivation equipment, harvesting equipment, crop processing & irrigation equipment, spraying & handling equipment and others (Forge & Hay Equipment, trailers, etc.).
The agriculture tractors segment is a major contributor in the market of agriculture equipment. This is attributable to the constant product development that is helping to produce more food in short time. Moreover, tractors, and autonomous 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 on hilly areas. For instance, in November 2017, Massey Fergusson launched MF 3700 series of tractors that are engineered for vineyard applications and fruit applications. They are also suitable for sloppy fields and hillside vineyards. The sale of agriculture tractor is expected to boost exponentially, with the main reason being growing population.
Harvesting equipment sub-segment is expected to witness substantial growth, owing to the increased preference for harvesters by the farmers to increase production. Moreover, harvesters have high fuel economy that is driving its demand in the forecast period.
Forage equipment, agriculture spraying and handling equipment segment is expected to witness steady growth, owing to the business establishments provided to farmers, especially in countries including Oman, Mexico, Uganda, Uruguay, Ethiopia, etc.
Land Development Category to Boost the Market
The application segment is categorized into land development, threshing and harvesting, plant protection, and after agro processing.
The land development category is anticipated to witness substantial growth, owing to the shortage of farm laborers. Most of the land is developed by equipment such as tractors and combine tractors. It leads to the land development in short time with more efficiency. Threshing and harvesting category is expected to witness moderate growth in the forecast period, owing to the developments in irrigation and harvesting equipment.
The plant protection and after agro processing application segments are expected to grow steadily, owing to the constant development in agriculture solutions provided by key manufacturers. For instance, in March 2019, AGCO Corporation introduced farming solutions focusing on soil preparation, harvesting, and plant protection applications.
