Agriculture Equipment Market Research: 2032
The Global Agriculture Equipment Market Size was valued at $121.2 billion in 2022, and is projected to reach $192.5 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2023 to 2032. A device, component of a device, or attachment to a device that is primarily intended to be used for agricultural purposes is referred to as agricultural equipment. "Agricultural equipment" can refer to anything used in the production of crops, animals, horticulture, or floriculture.
Agriculture is becoming more mechanized, which reduces the drudgery that labor-intensive farming methods contribute. Thus, the use of sustainable mechanization can boost land productivity by enhancing crop quality and decreasing operating times. During agricultural operations, mechanization techniques can be used to address issues such a lack of labor. In addition, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), 60% more food must be produced by 2050 to feed a population of 9.3 billion people worldwide.
Normal farming practices would place too much pressure on our natural resources to accomplish that. Increase agricultural output sustainably by using a variety of ecosystem-friendly methods, reducing the use of outside inputs, and helping farmers adapt to the more frequent weather extremes that occur with climate change to increase their resilience and lower greenhouse gas emissions. Thus, the increase in mechanization of agricultural activities is driving the adoption of agriculture equipment, thereby surging the agriculture equipment industry growth.
In a report released in 2019, the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs predicted that the world's population would increase to 8.5 billion by 2030 and 9.7 billion by 2050. This raises questions about the future viability of food and nutrition. More than 820 million people were undernourished in 2018, according to data from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). This puts pressure on the agriculture sector to produce enough food for the expanding population and to close the global undernourishment gap.
The ability of the soil to produce high-quality crops is also diminished as a result of the degradation of environmental resources brought on by a growth in agricultural production, which has a detrimental effect on the entire agricultural value chain. The implementation of automatic and semi-automatic agricultural equipment thus motivates sustainable mechanization of agricultural activities, by increasing the cultivation efficiencies. Agricultural equipment not only reduces the operational time of different farming activities but also helps to propel crop production causing minimum environmental degradation. Hence, increase in population is driving the agriculture equipment market growth.
However, agricultural activities are most widely conducted in rural regions of various developing countries. Farmers in these countries are majorly illiterate and unaware of the benefits of employing agriculture equipment for improving crop production. Illiteracy causes continuation of traditional farming practices, which are unsustainable and degrade the soil quality, thereby reducing the crop bearing efficiency of soil. Furthermore, rural areas do not have digital facilities such as resources, skills, and networks, which limits the penetration of advanced agricultural equipment in these areas. Thus, all these factors together restrain the agriculture equipment market growth.
The demand for agricultural equipment decreased in 2020 owing to low demand from different regions due to lockdown imposed by the government of many countries. The COVID-19 pandemic had shut down the production of agricultural equipment for the end-user, mainly owing to prolonged lockdowns in major global countries. This hampered the growth of the agriculture equipment market share significantly during the pandemic.
The major demand for agricultural equipment was previously noticed from giant manufacturing countries including China, U.S., Germany, India, and the UK, which was severely affected by the spread of coronavirus, thereby halting demand for agricultural equipment. This led to the re-initiation of the manufacturing industry at its full-scale capacities, which helped the agriculture equipment market recover.
Governments from many countries help with the growth of agricultural industries, including financial aid for the purchase of machinery and seeds. The subsidies help to ensure enough food production, lower the inflation rate for food commodities, protect farmer incomes, and strengthen the agricultural industry.
To increase agricultural production, developing countries like India offer a variety of subsidies, debt waiver programs, and other such services. For instance, the Government of India provides several programs for agricultural equipment, including Central Farm Machinery Training & Testing, online farm machinery monitoring, loan-cum-subsidy for the purchase of tractors, pump sets, and power tillers, as well as engineering training services for the use of innovative agricultural equipment. As a result, it is predicted that all these factors working together will present profitable prospects for the advancement of the global agriculture equipment market throughout the forecast period.
