The Africa ploughing and cultivating agrimachinery market was XX million US$ in 2014 and expected to reach XX million US$ by 2020 growing at a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecasted period 2015-2020. Ploughing and cultivating machines are primarily used for homogenising and conditioning the upper layer of soil deep to the range of 12-25 cm bringing it covered with fresh nutrients to increase the fertility of soil. Africa continent despite of available large agriculture land is the largest importer of agriculture machinery.

The major driver for the market are availability of agriculture area, high domestic agriculture productivity, and growth in population. However the increase in soil erosion has reduced the use of ploughing by the application of shallower or other less invasive and penetrating tillage practices which has become a restrain for ploughing machinery market. Less support from government for the growth and development of agriculture practice, poor infrastructure in the region, and easy availability of labour are affecting the market growth. The grain inflation hits the economy which creates unwillingness for farmer to invest in high cost machineries.

The market segmentation is done on the basis of product type, application type and by geography. The product type market is further segmented into plough, harrows, tiller, cultivator, and other soil cultivating machineries. Cultivators, harrows, hoes and ploughs are the major type of products used for cultivation which covers around 30% of the total offerings. Market segmentation according to application type involves soil loosening, cold size reduction, cold sorting, smoothening, compaction and consolidation. Soil conditioning and loosening application covers the largest market among others for ploughing and cultivating machinery application.
