Industry Insights

The global precision harvesting market size was accounted for USD 11.6 billion in 2019. It is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.6% over the forecast period, 2020 to 2027. The growing trend of mechanization in farming through harvesting robots and combine harvesters in developing countries is mainly accelerating the market growth. In addition, rising labor costs owing to a lack of skilled labor are also contributing to market growth.

The hardware category accounted for the highest share in the market, mainly due to the increasing adoption of automation devices like GPS systems, steering systems, yield monitors, and sensors. The yield monitoring, sensors, and GPS devices play a very vital role in maximizing crop yield.

North America precision harvesting market

By 2050, the global population is expected to reach 2.2 billion people. On the other hand, land degradation, increasing pollution levels are reducing the land & water resources. All these factors have influenced farmers to utilize the precision harvesting approach to improving productivity.

Precision harvesting help in transferring the agriculture sector from traditional style methods to advanced harvesting solutions with greater efficiency. Moreover, encouraging government initiatives is helping farmers to adopt advanced machinery tools for enhanced crop yield.

Product Insights

Based on the product, the precision harvesting market is fragmented into harvesting robots, combine harvesters, and self-propelled forage harvesters. In 2019, the combined harvester’s type segment dominated the market with the highest market share in the overall market. Increasing adoption of automation, advanced harvesting technologies like GPS, 3D cameras, sensors, and yield monitors. Rising innovation in products coupled with growing labor costs is expected to bolster the demand for precision harvesting solutions. However, high costs linked with advanced technology may hamper market growth.

The precision harvesting robots type segment is estimated to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecasted period. Growing food production demand, increasing labor costs are primarily bolstering the segmental growth. Moreover, hardware cost reduction is projected to positively impact market growth.

Offering Insights

Depending on the offering, the market is fragmented into software, hardware, and services. In 2019, the hardware offering segment held the largest market share in the overall market. The hardware segment is comprised of sensing devices, automation & control systems, and others. Sensing and automation devices play a key role in improving crop yielding capacity in the agriculture field.

The software offering segment is projected to propel at a CAGR of more than 11.0% from 2020 to 2027. The growing adoption of cloud computing solutions, server systems are contributing to the growth of software infrastructure. Predictive analysis tools are used to improve the crop yield with measured soil, temperature levels for better productivity.

Application Insights

In 2019, the crop segment dominated the market with the highest share in the overall market. The rising adoption of the mechanization approach over traditional farming in crops like maize, wheat, rice, wheat, corn, sugarcane, cotton, and soybean is surging the market growth. Several electronic devices such as GPS, sensors, and GIS are used for measuring optimum crop yield capacity.

Global precision harvesting marketThe greenhouse harvesting type segment is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR from 2020 to 2027. Rising environmental concerns, soil degradation, climatic conditions, and growing demand for data analytics in farming are proliferating the growth of greenhouses. The greenhouse uses robotics systems such as material handling, automatic conveyor spacing robots, and robotic arms.

Regional Insights

In 2019, North America dominated the precision harvesting market with the highest market share. The presence of early technology adopters across the region is contributing to market growth. Moreover, different government initiatives regarding agriculture technology in the U.S. market are boosting the demand for modern harvesting. For example, the National Institute of Food & Agriculture (NIFA) conducts programs related to sensor precision, &geospatial technology. These programs help in educating & creating awareness among farmers about new technology for improved food production.

Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecasted period. The increasing adoption of automated harvesters & harvesting robots in the region is projected to spur market growth.

Impact of COVID-19

COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the agricultural sector with a slowdown in the supply chain, the reduced workforce in farming. However, the market is projected to grow significantly over the forecasted years.

Lockdown restriction is contributing to workforce shortage and decline in food demand. However, the coronavirus crisis is estimated to offer potential growth opportunities for farmers through precision harvesting agriculture solutions. Thus, farmers are utilizing remote technologies such as satellite imagery/monitoring, artificial intelligence (AI) based solution to enhance the harvest quality of crops.
