Published Date : Mar 2021 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : ICT

The global Precision Farming market size is expected to be worth around US$ 26.35 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Precision Farming market size was valued at US$ 6.00 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 13.6% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

Precision farming, also known as site-specific crop management or satellite farming, is a farm management concept that uses information technology to ensure optimum health and productivity of crops. The precision farming technique largely depends on specialized equipment such as sensing devices, antennas and access points, and automation and control systems. It also involves maintenance services and managed services. Additionally, it incorporates a broad range of technologies such as bio-engineering, robotics and automation, imagery and sensors, and big data.

The growing number of applications for telematics in agriculture is anticipated to drive demand for precision farming over the projected period. Telematics services include tracking devices using the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) to show the position of the equipment for management purposes. Major manufacturers of agriculture equipment are adopting telematics services for their equipment to improve farm efficiency, thereby reducing the cost of agricultural operations and maximizing profitability. Additionally, improved management can help reduce environmental impact. Telematics technology is used to capture and transfer data from the farm equipment through sensors installed on tractors and other field monitoring equipment. The increasing adoption of telematics systems by agricultural equipment companies is expected to drive market growth.

Furthermore, with advancements in GPS guidance and automation, drones are poised to transform the agriculture industry. The ability of drones to precisely analyze the soil at the beginning of the crop cycle and detect a plant infected with bacteria or fungus is anticipated to propel the growth of the drone segment.

However, the low rate of technology adoption among farmers is likely to hamper market growth over the forecast period. This may be due to factors such as the absence of stringent standards and limitations on the exchange of data. Furthermore, farmers lack independent consulting and advisory services owing to the absence of validated agronomic models for Variable Rate Technology (VRT) to make decisions on investments. Independent services are not linked to co-operatives, government bodies, and farmer associations where farmers can get additional information to make improved decisions.

Report Highlights

The hardware segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 69.13% in 2020 and is expected to remain dominant over the forecast period. The hardware segment has been further bifurcated into automation and control systems, sensing devices, and antennas, and access points. The hardware components such as automation and control systems, sensing devices, and drones play a major role in helping farmers. For instance, the GIS guidance system is very beneficial for growers as it is capable to visualize agricultural workflows and the environment. Furthermore, VRT technology helps farmers to determine areas that need more pesticides and seeds, and thereby distribute them equally across the field.

The software segment is fragmented based on web-based and cloud-based precision farming. Cloud computing focuses on shared networks, servers, and storage devices, owing to which the high costs incurred in maintaining hardware and software infrastructure are eliminated. As a result, the software segment is anticipated to register a CAGR of over 16% during the forecast period. Predictive analytics software is used to guide farmers about crop rotation, soil management, optimal planting times, and harvesting times.

The yield monitoring segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 44.55% in 2020 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period as it helps the farmers to make decisions about their fields. The segment is further segregated into on-farm yield monitoring and off-farm yield monitoring. On-farm yield monitoring enables farmers to obtain real-time information during harvest and create a historical spatial database. This segment is expected to account for the largest market share as it offers equitable landlord negotiations, documentation of environmental compliance, and track records for food safety. Meanwhile, the irrigation management segment is expected to witness considerable growth over the projected period. Smart irrigation involves the use of various technologies, such as rain sensors, weather-based controllers, sensor-based controllers, and water meters, to help estimate the right amount of irrigation water. Such benefits are likely to drive the adoption of irrigation drones.

The weather tracking and forecasting segment is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 18% during the forecast period. The use of sensors helps weather forecasters to provide accurate weather reading and forecasting. Also, the introduction of machine learning techniques and advanced data analytics services has increased the reliability and accuracy of weather forecasts.

North America accounted for the largest revenue share of 45.61% in 2020. The region is an early adopter of technologies. Factors such as increasing government initiatives for the adoption of modern agriculture technologies and developed infrastructure have contributed to the high revenue of the regional market. For instance, the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA)-part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture-conducts geospatial, sensor, and precision technology programs to create awareness among farmers. In partnership with Land-Grand universities, NIFA helps farmers develop robust sensors, associated software, and instrumentation for modeling, observing, and analyzing a wide range of complex biological materials and processes. Furthermore, in November 2016, the Canadian government invested USD 425,000 in Clean Seed Capital Group to enhance and commercialize precision agriculture technology. The goal of this investment was to reduce the excessive use of fertilizers and pesticides. With the help of these funds, the company also developed CX-6 SMART Seeder for farmers.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The region is expected to witness a CAGR of over 15% from 2021 to 2028. Numerous government initiatives are being undertaken in developing countries such as India, Sri Lanka, and Nigeria to encourage the implementation of modern precision farming technologies, thereby maximizing productivity. China and Israel signed a trade agreement in September 2017 worth USD 300 million to facilitate the export of environment-friendly Israeli technology to China. Moreover, an effective administrative framework is also enabling farmers to gain adequate knowledge of the proper use and maintenance of precision farming equipment.
