Overview of the global agricultural robots market

The rising industrialization in developing countries has led to the migration of labor from farming to industrial jobs. As a result, the increase in the average labor costs worldwide has shifted focus towards automation of farming activities in the recent years. The global agricultural robots market is expected to see increased growth at a CAGR of around 11% during the forecast period. 

Developed nations, especially in the European Union and the US are investing huge amounts in developing advanced robots that can be used for commercial purposes. For instance, during 2013, the European Union launched the Horizon 2020 research and innovation framework program that was allocated a budget of nearly $109 billion for seven years. The integration of robots with drones and GPS systems will help in gathering accurate field data that can be used in the development of new crop varieties including genetically modified crops.

Segmentation of the global agricultural robots by application

  •     Livestock management
  •     Cattle feeding
  •     Cleaning
  •     Wildlife conservation

In 2014, the livestock management segment dominated the agricultural robots market with a market share of around 77%. The necessity for productivity in dairy farm operations is the key driver for the growth of this segment. 

Wildlife conservation robots are used to check illegal poaching of wild animals. They are also used in aerial surveillance and tracking of objects and animals within the forest. As wildlife awareness increases globally, this segment is expected to witness an increased growth in the use of robots. 

Segmentation of the global agricultural robots market by geography

  •     EMEA
  •     APAC
  •     Americas

EMEA is the dominant region in the agricultural robots market with the largest market share being contributed by the European countries. Europe is also the main consumer of cow milking machines and its demand from dairy farms is expected to surge during the forecast period. 

The APAC region is predicted to grow at a rate of around 12% during the forecast period. The overhauling of farming models especially in countries like China, where nearly 45% of the population depends on the agricultural sector, will drive the growth of the agricultural robots market in this region.

Leading vendors in the agricultural robots market

The necessity to increase the agricultural productivity from farms with the use of modern technology and farm equipment has amplified the demand for agricultural robots. Vendors in the market along with research institutes are investing in developing commercially viable and customized robots. International players in the market are anticipated to grow inorganically as a result of mergers and acquisitions during the forecast period.
