MARKET OVERVIEW- GLOBAL FARM IMPLEMENT MARKET
The utilization of agricultural equipment assists in obtaining high crop yields in comparatively less time and minimal efforts. The use of automatic and semiautomatic agricultural equipment reduces the necessity of labor on farms, which reduces the costs incurred on manpower. An increase in mechanization of various farming activities such as plowing, harrowing, planting, harvesting and tilling is further boosting the demand for the farm implement market. Furthermore, the growing global population creates a demand for additional food cultivation and this demand creates the need to use automatic farm equipment to increase the cultivation efficiency.
Increases in crop production and emerging economies in developing countries drive the farm implement market. Favorable climatic conditions for food and production and government support with subsidies for farmers also favor market growth. Several government administrations globally are providing funds to their farmers to push them to adopt sustainable agriculture practices and enhance productivity by using machinery. Adding to that, financial support to farmers such as loan waiver schemes through the regional governments is boosting the market growth. Increasing demand for high-capacity machinery due to large farms and the rising popularity of self-propelled machines.
Increased adoption of intelligent combined harvesters equipped with monitoring tools to increase farm yield. Increasing demand for high-capacity machinery due to large farms and the rising popularity of self-propelled machines boosts a great opportunity for the farm implement market.
The high initial cost of agricultural equipment is one of the major factors. The inability of small farmers to invest a high amount results in the low penetration of farm equipment in emerging countries.
MARKET GROWTH CHALLENGES
The growth of the rental market as renting farm equipment is cost effective compared to purchasing the equipment on a standard loan from a financial institution is a major challenge faced by the farm implement market.
