Overview of the global automatic irrigation equipment market

The global automatic irrigation equipment market is anticipated to grow at an impressive rate and will post a CAGR of more than 14% during the forecast period. Precision irrigation is a site-specific farming technique where the optimum quantity of water is distributed based on differences in soil type, soil water capacity, yield potential, and topography. The factors that increase the adoption of precision irrigation includes low investment, less usage of water and fertilizers, improvement in crop yield, and reduction of harmful impact on the environment. In traditional methods, the uniform application of fertilizers or water to a field can result in irregular yield, leaving some zones over-fertilized or over-irrigated and other zones under-fertilized or under-irrigated. In precision irrigation, the irrigation requirement is estimated before irrigating the land. Automatic irrigation system is used to attain precision farming efficiently. Furthermore, the increased emphasis on precision farming will result in the increased adoption of precision irrigation, which, in turn, increases the demand for automatic irrigation equipment during the forecast period.

In terms of geography, the Americas leads the market by occupying the maximum market share during 2016 and will continue to dominate the market during the forecast period. This is due to the increased adoption of mechanized agriculture in the region. Also, because of the increase in residential construction and commercial construction, the demand for automatic irrigation equipment increases for residential gardens, backyards, golf courses, public parks, and lawns.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is diversified with the presence of international and regional vendors. Regional vendors are struggling to compete with larger players based on quality

Outlook of the hybrid seeds market in India

The hybrid seeds market in India will grow profoundly during the forecast period and post an impressive CAGR of almost 15% by 2020. Growing focus on high-yielding varieties will aid in the strong growth of this market during the estimated period. It has been observed that the quality of seeds plays a crucial role in agriculture, and their efficacy determines the overall agricultural productivity. A good quality seed can improve production by up to 45%. However, a decline in the availability of resources can negatively affect the productivity of seeds and create a demand-supply gap. Due to the declining total arable land in India, the need for higher productivity to keep up with the growing demand for agricultural products and ensure food security has increased. This, in turn, has resulted in the high demand for high-yielding hybrid seeds among farmers in India.

Additionally, the rising utilization of hybrid seeds with advanced generation traits will also lead to the growth of this market during the predicted period. According to the research carried out by the analysts, it has been estimated that the cultivation of seeds with traits such as herbicide and disease resistance, abiotic stress tolerance, modified quality pollination control system, and insecticide resistance will lead to the strong growth of this market during the forecast period. As a result, most vendors are focusing on the development of seeds with specific traits that enhance yield and minimize losses in crop.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The hybrid seeds market in India is highly competitive and comprises of nearly 300 players. Almost 80% of the total revenue comes from the top 10 domestic companies and MNCs. The market comprises of players from both the public and private sectors. Most companies under the private sector have higher

Overview of the combine harvester market

Extensive research carried out by the analysts at Technavio has shown that the global combine harvester market will witness impressive growth and will post a CAGR of more than 7% over the forecast period. Short harvest windows of crops are one of the primary factors propelling the growth prospects for this combine harvester market. Agricultural farming is a time-bound process and different seasons have led to the creation of harvest windows for crops that produce maximum yields when agricultural operations like planting and harvesting are performed within a small time interval. Harvest windows vary in different countries and are largely based on weather and geographical changes and vary between 10 to 30 days. This increases the need for large and powerful equipment like combine harvester to increase the efficiency and productivity in short periods. Certain crops like cocoa, cassava, and sugarcane have a very short harvest window, leading to the high adoption of combine harvesters in the coming years.

With an increase in farm mechanization practices, the market for combine harvester is anticipated to have a positive outlook during the forecast period. Appropriate farm mechanization is needed to achieve timeliness in field operations, increase productivity, cut down crop production cost, reduce harvest losses, and minimize farm drudgery. This is also expected to boost the overall crop output and farm income. Moreover, governments around the world have introduced several convenient policies pertaining to farm mechanization, which will, in turn, boost the sales of combine harvesters in the future.
