Executive Summary
- strong emphasis on sustainable development due to the environmental issues has led to a global emergence of precision agriculture technologies. The market is estimated to reach $7.6 billion by 2022 at a CAGR of 12.7% through the forecast period. Increasing global demand for food, economic boom in APAC regions, and emerging technologies are some of the reasons responsible for the growth of this market. However, the market consists of some constraints such as huge capital investment required, lack of awareness, and data management issues which are hampering its overall growth.

The precision agriculture market has been tracked along the lines of its components, application areas, and geography. Herein, the revenue generated from the components i.e. hardware and management services & systems, is tracked in order to calculate the market size. The revenue generated from various application areas namely-yield monitoring, precision irrigation, variable rate application, field mapping, soil monitoring, and crop scouting, have been analyzed.

The hardware components used in precision agriculture hold 85% of the market, the management systems and services, though significant, hold lesser share. The high price and maintenance costs of the hardware add up to form the reasons leading to their domination on the market at present and in the forecast period. These are divided into GNSS/ GPS devices, sensing devices and others (including cameras & displays).

The section of GNSS/ GPS devices further segmented and analyzed into its various applications areas. These are the maximum used hardware of precision agriculture and are said to be the backbone of this industry because it assists the user in reducing the missing and overlapping of the inputs in the field. Other widely used devices are the sensors, which sense and calculate the input requirements of the soil and crop.

This report covers the global precision agriculture market, and consequently provides the revenue of the key regions – North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and Rest of the World (ROW). The analysis has identified that North America was the largest revenue generating segment in 2015, the reason being the fact that it includes both the developed nations of the U.S. and Canada which favors a high degree of investments in key areas than any other region. APAC is the next region leading in the market since it includes major countries such as Australia, India and China, which are predominantly involved into agriculture.

Some of the key players in the industry are: AGCO Corporation, CNH Industrial, Deere & Co., Lindsay Corporation, The Toro Company, and Yara International among others. These companies are aiming for more product launches and mergers & acquisitions to expand their operations and prevent the new entrants from entering the market.
