Farmers across the globe are turning to mechanization to meet the growing food demand by reducing harvest losses. Generally, around 50% – 60% of the crop gets damaged during harvesting if the process is carried out manually. In addition to limiting harvesting losses, mechanization of farming helps farmers to produce five times more than what they produce using traditional farming practices. With the agriculture industry witnessing a paradigm shift from orthodox farming practices to mechanized practices, the global harvesters market is likely to achieve great heights in the coming years. Advancements in technology, increasing acceptance to technology, and resulting shift towards mechanized farm equipment is driving conventional farm equipment towards obsolescence, thereby generating demand for new installations. Rapid progressions in technology has led to the development of harvesters with superior features and capabilities, thereby driving market demand.
In terms of product type, harvesting robots represent an emerging technology that is attracting attention of farmers, especially in developed economies. Need to increase farm productivity while limiting labor cost remains the overriding factor driving adoption of robotic harvesters among farmers in these regions. In addition, gradual decline in prices of hardware will have positive impact on adoption of robotic harvesters in the emerging, price sensitive economies during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.
Some of the leading precision harvester manufacturers profiled in the research study include Deere & Company, AGCO Corporation, AgJunction, The Grimme Group, Trimble, Precision Planting, Harvest Croo Robotics, AG Leader, Abundant Robotics, Raven Industries, Teejet Technologies, and Vision Robotics Corporation among others. In order to expand their offerings and better penetrate markets with latent potential, these equipment manufacturers are foreseeing an opportunity to expand their offerings by providing precision harvesters on rental basis. The rental business would offer a sound growth opportunity for manufacturers, especially having presence in Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle-East countries where farmers find it financially burdening to invest on high cost advanced farm and agriculture equipment. On the other hand, availability of precision harvesters on rental basis would allow farmers to adopt mechanized farming practices and help increase their yield by reducing harvest losses.
- Financial assistance for farmers by the governments across the globe for the uptake and procurement of the machinery in low-mechanized regions
- Government subsidies & credits are instrumental in driving the uptake of harvesters and other mechanized equipment
- Growing demand for energy crops has triggered subsequent need for harvesters; shift towards biofuel operated harvesting machinery
- Farm consolidation in developed economies is stimulating demand for large harvesting machinery
