Agricultural Robots Market Overview:
Technological evolution has had an extensive impact on various industries such as packaging, food & beverage, healthcare, agriculture, and construction. With the continuous demographic surge, consumers demand for food is rapidly increasing. This has led to gradual adoption of technological solutions to catalyze the agricultural productivity by the agricultural industry.
Agricultural robots are gaining traction among the farmers, owing to the need for producing food products effectively and ensuring sustainability. These robots are deployed to speed the farming processes with minimal human interventions. Various agricultural robots are programmed to perform different farming processes such as field farming, dairy farming, seed sorting, soil management, and others. High requirement for modernized and sustainable farming processes to produce faster yields is expected to drive the global agricultural robots market over the forecast period.
The global agricultural robots market is driven by the large number of agricultural technology firms developing, experimenting, and launching a wide range of robotic systems designed for various agricultural purposes. Increase in population, rise in demand on food supply, high popularity of indoor farming, frequent climate variations, and surge in adoption of automation technology are expected to boost the global agricultural robots market growth in the future. However, the global agricultural robots industry is expected to witness few challenges such as limited awareness about agricultural robots among the farmers, and inability of the robots to match up to human human-like dexterity impede this growth. Adoption of telematics sensors can be a potential opportunity for the global agricultural robots market.
The global agricultural robots market is segmented on the basis of type, application, and geography. On the basis of type, the global agricultural robots market is classified into driverless tractors, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), milking robots, automated harvest robots, material management, and others (animal management and forest management). Based on application, the global agricultural robots market is divided into dairy management, irrigation management, harvest management, soil management, inventory management, and others (field mapping and pruning management). Geographically, the global agricultural robots market is analyzed across North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and LAMEA.
Top impacting factors
Factors contributing the demand for global agricultural robots market include increase in adoption of automation technology, growth in demand for food and feed, rise in popularity of indoor farming and weather uncertainties. The economic progress is driven by the increase in population in the urban areas and the suburbs. This scenario results into an increased demand for food production.
With an aim to meet the rapidly increasing demands for food and ensure no food scarcity, the agricultural industry is increasingly deploying agricultural robots. The concept of indoor farming is emerging owing to its ability to increase the local food supplies and offer fresh produce to the consumers.
Thus, the global agricultural robots market has witnessed high proliferation in the indoor farming process to effectively manage the yields and other farming processes. The automation technology has highly impacted various industries by easing out the industrial processes and eliminating the need for human interferences. The agricultural industry is expected to be benefitted by the introduction of agricultural robots. Continuous and unexpected climate variations are a major challenge for the farmers; thus, the introduction of agricultural robots serves as a boon for the agricultural industry.
