The global agricultural robots market size is expected to grow from USD 4.9 billion in 2021 to USD 11.9 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 19.3%. The market witnessed a significant increase in the demand for robots due to the impact of COVID-19. The supply chain disruption caused by the pandemic is expected to affect the market significantly. Also, due to lockdown restrictions, companies were not able to source the required labor for their operations due to travel restrictions.
Though the market is impacted in 2020, it is expected to recover by 2021. Growing population and increasing labor shortage encouraging automation, maturing IoT and navigation technologies are driving down cost of automation, and COVID-19 pandemic expected to accelerate the use of robots in the agricultural sector are some of the key factors driving the growth of the agricultural robots market. Also, the use of real-time multimodal robot systems in fields and increased use of electrification technology in agricultural robots is likely to boost market growth.

The agricultural robots market is competitive, owing to the presence of strong regional and global players. The key strategies adopted by these players to enhance their product portfolio, increase their market share and expand their presence in the market include product launches and acquisitions. Due to these strategies and political and economic factors, the agricultural robots market has witnessed a substantial change between over the past few years. For instance, in October 2020, Lely introduced a new farm management application—Lely Horizon. The dairy automation application connects data from all relevant equipment and suppliers on the farm in one management system. Horizon is a real decision-support platform, which analyses data, offers insights, and gives proactive advice to make the farmers life easier, the herd healthier, and the farm more profitable. In July 2021, Novariant, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of AgJunction, agreed with Komatsu Ltd., a manufacturer and supplier of equipment for the construction, mining equipment, utilities, forestry, and industrial markets, to provide sophisticated automation kits for construction workplaces. Novariant Inc. currently provides automation modules that support mapping, path planning, and autosteering for Komatsus construction equipment platforms used in agricultural applications.
Deere & Company manufactures agriculture, construction, and forestry vehicles and machinery. The company operates through four primary business segments: agriculture and turf, construction and forestry, financial services, and others. The agriculture and turf segment is the largest segment in terms of revenue generation, and the segment offers agricultural robots and automation products. The company provides agricultural automation systems under various product lines, including data management, remote management, guidance, and variable rate application. In August 2021, the company acquired Bear Flag Robotics for USD 250 million. Bear Flag Robotics was founded in 2017 and specialized in autonomous farming heavy machinery.
DJI primarily manufactures unmanned aerial vehicles. Its drones are widely used by professionals in filmmaking, agriculture, conservation, search & rescue, and energy infrastructure, among other applications. Apart from drones, the company also manufactures drone accessories, including aerial gimbals, HD video downlinks, and tuned propulsion systems. The company offers specialized drones, hardware (GNSS mobile station, spreading systems, and cameras), and software for use in agriculture. The applications of drones in agriculture include crop spraying, agricultural photography, and surveillance of farmlands. In November 2020, the company launched an agriculture drone, the DJI AGRAS T20. The AGRAS T20 Drone features a robust modular design, omnidirectional digital radar, and optimized precision spraying module transform farming with digital insights and efficiency.
DeLaval is one of the three industry groups of Tetra Laval (Switzerland), a privately held company. DeLaval provides automation solutions for the dairy farming industry and develops, manufactures, and markets equipment and complete systems for milk production and animal husbandry worldwide. Its broad product portfolio includes milking, feeding, animal welfare, barn, and farm support systems for small family farms and large dairy operations. The company offers two types of robot milking systems, and both come with a teat spray robot. An automated feed pusher and manure handling robot are also provided as robotic farm accessories alongside the milking robots. The company also offers a complete dairy farm management system software for maximizing efficiency and capacity. In July 2021, the company launched a new parallel parlor system designed explicitly with family farms and grassland customers. The DeLaval Parlour P100 delivers a smoother milking process using fewer resources and enabling the right automation to be used for every single farm.
