    Market Dynamics

    The autonomous farm equipment market is expected to grow owing to various growth factors. A few of them are –

    • Use of drones in agricultural fields – The usage of drones in farms serves a multitude of benefits to the farmers, owing to which, its usage is growing rapidly. The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International estimates that farms will eventually account for an 80% share of the commercial drone market.
    • Governments supporting farmers to adopt autonomous farm equipment – Several governments across the globe, like China, the United States, etc. are providing financial support to farmers to encourage them to adopt autonomous farm equipment.
    • Labor Shortage – The younger population is shifting to urban areas, leaving a gap in the agricultural workforce. To curb labor shortage across the globe, and to bridge the gap, autonomous farm equipment are preferred to be a helping hand to the farmers and these equipment are also performing tasks traditionally done by farmers, ensuring continuity in farm operations.
    • Long-term cost savings – Initial investments in autonomous farm equipment might be significant, but the long-term savings can be substantial. Labor costs are a major expense in agriculture, and by using autonomous equipment in the agricultural fields, farmers can save on labor expenses.
    • Need for Data-Driven Farming: Data-driven decision-making is becoming increasingly common in almost all sectors, now including farming too. Data-driven farming can help farmers to improve their crop yields, reduce their input costs, and make better decisions about their operations. Autonomous farm equipment is used to collect data on crop health, soil condition, water usage, etc.
