Global Smart Agriculture Market

Market Overview

Agriculture plays a vital role in every country’s economic development. With growing world’s population demand for food production is rapidly going up but the production rate is very slow as compared with the population growth rate. Global food and agriculture industry estimated to form a market value of over USD 6.0 trillion by 2020, however meeting the needs of growing population is a challenge for agriculture sector. Hence to fulfill the need, high crop yielding is required which is significantly boosting the adoption of smart agriculture across the world. Agricultural technologies have strong business opportunities with deployment of advanced technologies such as big data analytics, cloud based platforms and IoT. Implementation of Internet of Things (IoT) in agriculture is in its nascent stage. However, rising penetration of wireless communication system is driving the demand of IoT in smart agriculture. Many startups are generating notable revenues with the implementation of IoT based technologies and solution in agriculture sector. In 2015, over 25 IoT based agricultural technology startups were established in India. The United States based startups related to smart agriculture generated over USD 2.0 billion from connected agricultural projects in 2016.

Top market players of the market are hugely investing in acquisitions and expansion of farm network business which is expected to drive the market of smart agriculture. In 2017, America agricultural equipment manufacturer AGCO Corporation announced to acquire precision planting equipment and signed an agreement with The Climate Corporation. This partnership is targeting to deploy innovative products and digital platforms to farmers and to enhance the agricultural productivity across the world. In the same year, Crop Data Management Systems, Inc., (CDMS) is planning to acquire SeedIQ a seed product data provider to improvise crop production and protection for agriculture industry.

Major area of Latin America region is covered with forest and natural resources which is driving the agriculture industry in the region. Rising penetration of automation in agriculture industry mainly in Brazil and Mexico is contributing for significant growth of smart agriculture in Latin America region.

Market Drivers and Challenges

Changing climatic conditions majorly affect the agricultural production. Brazil has witness nearly 10-18% of reductions in production of soy and corn in past few years due to extreme heat conditions. Deployment of IoT based solutions can efficiently monitor the climatic changes and can improve the crop yielding. IoT based solutions also helps in effective utilization of water and its conservation in agriculture. Smart irrigation has potential to reduce the water consumption up to 10-15% which is anticipated to become a future for smart agriculture market. Moreover, advanced technologies for agriculture sector is also reducing the consumption of energy and enhancing the crop productivity. Farmers are inclining towards the adoption of smart equipments such as drones and GPS tracking which is improving the agricultural activities and reducing the operational cost and human labor. More than 85% of farmers are using GPS enabled technologies in farm machinery and livestock monitoring in US. These are some of the key factors which are driving the smart agriculture market globally.

Lack of access to connected devices and services in agriculture mainly in developing countries is restraining the market growth of IoT in smart agriculture. Over 60% of farmers across the world are not facilitated proper internet connectivity. High initial investment in implementation of advance technologies is limiting the adoption of IoT among farmers of developing countries like India, Brazil and China. Agriculture industry has vast application and efficient management of data is a major obstacle for the expansion of smart agriculture market. Smart agriculture market is majorly consists of startups. Deployment of large scale projects in agriculture is a challenge which also reduces adoption rate of technologies by farmers in agriculture sector.
