According to Vision Research Reports, the global autonomous & semi-autonomous tractors market size is anticipated to surpass US$ 9 Bn by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of more than 25.3% during the forecast period 2020 to 2027.
Market for autonomous and semi-autonomous tractor is likely to expand significantly during the forecast period, owing to the high rate of adoption of technology among farmers in order to boost the production of their farms. Specifically, the driverless tractors market is expected to expand in developed regions such as North America and Europe; however, the rate of adoption of driver-assisted tractors, which comprise steering-assist and land monitoring systems, is expected to rise remarkably in developing countries such as India, China, and Brazil.
The study has considered the base year as 2019, which estimates the market size of market and the forecast period is 2020 to 2027. The report analyzes and forecasts the market size, in terms of volume (thousand units) and value (USD million), for the market. The report provides a detailed analysis of various forces acting in the market (drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges). The report covers key players and comprehensively analyzes their market shares and core competencies. It also tracks and analyzes competitive developments such as joint ventures, mergers & acquisitions, new product launches, expansions, and other activities carried out by key industry participants.
Rising population is boosting the demand for agricultural products; however, contraction in availability of agriculture land is prompting people to adopt highly advanced technologies, which can contribute to enhanced production. In the first decade of the 21st century, precision agriculture enhanced the production of farms remarkably in the U.S., which encouraged other countries in other regions to adopt advanced technologies in order to increase production of their farms and follow better land management techniques. Manufacturers are likely to focus on semi-autonomous tractors in developing countries, while the market for fully driverless tractors is likely to expand rapidly in developed countries, such as the U.S., Canada, France, and the U.K. The rate of adoption of driver-assisted autonomous tractors in developing regions is anticipated to be higher than fully autonomous tractors owing to the high cost of fully autonomous tractors.
The agriculture sector is a major contributor to the global GDP (gross domestic product), and in 2014, it accounted for one-third of the global GDP. According to the World Bank, agricultural development is a highly powerful tool, which can be utilized to beat extreme poverty. Therefore, in most regions, governments are taking required steps to boost their respective agriculture sectors and manufacturers involved in the manufacturing of agricultural equipment are continuously developing equipment that can boost the production of the sector. Therefore, such development is likely to boost the autonomous & semi-autonomous tractors market.
The global autonomous and semi-autonomous tractors market in developing regions, such as Asia Pacific, is expected to expand at a significant growth rate during the forecast period, as the market for semi-autonomous tractors is expected to expand at a rapid pace in countries such as China and India, owing to their lower cost as compared to the fully driverless tractors. Furthermore, the penetration of fully driverless tractors is expected to remain low during the forecast period due to the availability of adequate labor in China and India; however, the penetration is expected to increase after the forecast period due to reduction in cost of driverless tractors owing to development of full-fledged production line of tractors and declining number of labor in sub-regions of Asia Pacific. Moreover, most of the population in the region prefers desk jobs over field work.
Major players who are continuously involved into the development of autonomous and semi-autonomous tractors include AGCO Corporation, CNH Industrial N.V., Deere & Company, Escorts Limited, Komatsu America Corp., Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., SAME DEUTZ-FAHR Italia S.p.A., Ag Leader Technology, Agjunction, Inc., Autonomous Solutions Inc., Raven Industries, Inc., Trimble, Inc., and YANMAR CO., LTD. Among all the manufacturers, CNH Industrial N.V. and YANMAR CO., LTD are at the forefront in the development of the autonomous tractors. In 2016, CNH industrial N.V. revealed its concept for fully autonomous tractor and is planning to launch its fully driverless tractor under CASE IH brand in the market in the near future. The company is planning to launch its product into five categories based on the level of automation of the tractor, while YANMAR CO., LTD announced the expected launch its fully driverless tractor by the end of October 2018.
