The precision forestry market was worth USD 3.9 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 6.1 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 9.0% from 2019 to 2024. The rapid growth of the precision forestry market can be attributed to the increasing forestry mechanization in emerging countries of Asia Pacific & Africa, rise in construction activities, growing demand for timber from sawmills, decreasing cost of forestry mapping technologies, prevention of illegal logging & deforestation; and increasing government support towards digitalization of forest management.
Precision forestry has the potential to transform the forestry industry by making traditional forestry activities more efficient and economical. Also, government initiatives in many countries are helping foresters adopt advanced technologies and tools for site-specific management of the forest. The cost of precision forestry technology is expected to decrease in the next couple of years, mainly because of the declining prices of major hardware components, which is likely to contribute to the market’s growth.
