Introduction & Overview:
The report provides a Comprehensive & Insightful Comparative SWOT Framework Analysis on the world’s 6 leading agriculture equipment manufacturers amid evolving industry dynamics with robust fundamentals & presence of strong, long-term demand & growth drivers linked directly to a rapidly growing global population. The current & near term view of the industry is, however, dominated by continued, significant pressures on farm incomes & profitability emanating from an altered supply side economics with record crop production for 2014 across key geographic regions impacting crop prices & farm incomes directly & significantly which is likely to have a significant bearing on agriculture machinery sales over near term. The multitude of pressures on top line growth have necessitated & rendered competitiveness as crucial to protecting profitability across industry OEMs which have been working towards optimizing & aligning their cost base & industrial footprint with emerging demand scenario.
Presence of Strong Fundamentals & Long Term Demand Drivers while Multiple, Near Term Pressures to Persist:-
The global agriculture industry needs to double its production output by 2050 from current levels, in order, to match & meet the global food demand which is projected to grow rapidly given the world’s population growth rate. This need to increase global crop production output & enhance efficiency will necessitate & drive increased utilization of mechanized farming, especially, across emerging nations over medium to long term as the population growth is projected to be spearheaded by them along with other less developed nations. The near term dynamics for the industry, however, are complex & difficult with the Industry faces significant, near term pressures emanating from record harvest for corn & soyabean across North America, Europe & Latin America regions in 2014 that have plummeted crop prices & have subsequently impacted farm incomes; projected to contract by 14% in the U.S. for 2014; and ultimately demand & purchase decisions for agriculture machinery. Further, recent surge in U.S. Dollar against most key global currencies, significant increase in corn planting acreage across key regions globally, ongoing correction in farm land prices in the U.S. & proposed easing of existing ethanol fuel mandates across the U.S. & EU over near term paint a grim picture for the industry over near term despite strong, long-term fundamentals & demand drivers.
