The variable rate technology market is estimated to rise at a compound annual growth rate of ~9.6 percent from 2017, to attain ~$2.2B by 2022. Improved efficiency & productivity through improved crop yields & field quality and favorable government initiatives for adoption of modern agricultural techniques are the main factors driving this sector.

The map-based VRT segment controled the overall variable rate technology market.

The map-based VRT segment is the most widely used application method of variable rate technology across the world.Map-based VRT is traditional application method, and is thus widely used; sensor based-VRT is relatively new and is under development.

Also, the real-time sensor-based variable rate equipment is more complex and requires the working of different distinct components to accomplish a desired output. Therefrom, growers prefer map-based VRT to sensor-based VRT.

The use of variable rate technology is anticipated to grow quickest in significant farms.

The important farms segment comprises farms larger than 200 hectares in size.Variable rate technology is most suitable for these farm sizes considering economies of scale.

Advances in modern commercial farming machinery in recent years, particularly with respect to power and size, now allow a single owner to successfully manage a cropping enterprise of thousands of hectares, thus growing the value of scale.

APAC is forecasted to be the quickest-increasing area in the sector.

The variable rate technology market in Asia-Pac is in its initial stages and is expected to grow at a double-digit rate between 2016 and 2022.The area has an extensive land area, which comprises countries including China (CN), Japan (JP), India (IN), and Australia (AU).
