Global Autonomous Agriculture Equipment Market Segmentation
Application: The autonomous agriculture equipment market by application is led by harvesting. Harvesting is mainly done for collecting ripe crops from the field. Harvesting activities include stacking, handling, threshing, reaping, cleaning, and hauling. These activities can be performed through harvesters alone or a combined harvester can be used to perform the operations simultaneously. Field and row crops such as potatoes, wheat, corn can be easily gathered by fully autonomous equipment such as tractors and planters. Thus, the demand for autonomous agriculture equipment for harvesting is highest amongst other applications.
Equipment: The global autonomous agriculture equipment market by equipment type is dominated by tractors. The autonomous tractor is witnessing an increase in demand, majorly owing to the growing concern of labor shortages and offering increased productivity and efficiencies, bringing higher yields. The technology used in the autonomous tractor allows working for 24-hour, round-the-clock operations and remote management of operations by the users.
Region : North America generated the highest revenue of $7.4 billion in 2020, which is attributed to the technological advancements in the North America region. With high food safety, labor shortage, and security concerns in the region, autonomous equipment in the region has offered a big solution to the food safety, labor shortage, and security concerns. The region is expected to witness high growth of CAGR 11.2% during the forecast period.
