Agricultural Robots Market

Market Leadership - Agricultural Robots Market

The agricultural robots market is projected to grow from USD 4.6 billion in 2020 to USD 20.3 billion by 2025; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 34.5% from 2020 to 2025. Increasing the requirement of automating repetitive and laborious tasks, coupled with the reluctance of new farmers to enter into the agricultural industry, is leading to the automation of various agricultural processes. Decreasing costs of automation technologies such as the Internet of things (IoT) and global positioning systems (GPS) is expected to make automated farming products affordable to a large number of farmers worldwide. Active development of agricultural robots and their adoption from fruit harvesting to weed removal applications is expected to contribute to the growth of the agricultural robots market.

Although the agricultural robots market is growing at a steady pace, it is moderately competitive owing to the presence of several key global players, as well as several startups playing a key role in the growth of the market. Key strategies adopted by these players to enhance their product portfolios, increase their market share and expand their presence in the market mainly include new product launches. For instance, in April 2019, Trimble (US) announced the launch of the Farmer Core software that integrates machine-generated data to simplify setup and streamline operations for various farming activities. It is an entry-level software subscription, which is accessible to a large number of farmers. In March 2018, AGCO Corporation (US) announced the launch of a seeding swarm robot, Xaver, to be marketed and sold under the Fendt brand. This robot operates in a swarm and uses cloud connectivity to precisely plant corn using an intelligent fleet management system. Apart from this, market players have also adopted the strategies of partnerships and collaborations to enhance their product portfolios and expand their geographical reach. For instance, in May 2019, AgJunction (US) announced a collaboration with Swift Navigation (US) to develop low-cost, autonomous tractors for agricultural applications to provide affordable solutions to farmers worldwide.
