Major players in the autonomous farm equipment market are Claas KGaA GmbH, Deutz Fahr, AGCO Corporation, John Deere, Case IH, Agrobot, Autonomous Tractor Corporation, Yanmar and Iseki & Co.

The global autonomous farm equipment market is expected grow from $62.31 billion in 2020 to $74.03 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.8%. The growth is mainly due to the companies resuming their operations and adapting to the new normal while recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $127.3 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 15%.

The autonomous farm equipment market consists of sales of autonomous farm equipment and related services for agriculture, horticulture, animal husbandry, and forestry.Within a unified framework, autonomous farming is the modeling and regulation of agricultural machinery.

These farming technologies use the on-farm sensing and control power of automated farming equipment to reach agronomy-based targets.

The increasing use of autonomous tractors is a key factor driving the growth of the autonomous farm equipment market.Autonomous tractors use a number of sophisticated systems and sensors which would possess an effective self-driving vehicle, and by incorporating these advanced systems in run-of-the-mill farming, farmers will experience positive technological effect in the workplace.

Alternatively, autonomous tractors can be set up to function as mobile hotspots to collect data from sensors in the field. Also, about 34.5% of the global demand for autonomous farm machinery will retain 31–100 HP output capacity of farm tractors in 2026. Therefore, the demand for autonomous tractors is expected to drive the growth of the autonomous farm equipment market.

The fear of unemployment due to automation is a key factor hampering the growth of the autonomous farm equipment market.The developments in AI and robotics would have a significant impact on regular working lifestyles, comparable to the change away from agricultural societies during the industrial revolution.

In the US alone, between 39 and 73 million jobs will be automated, representing approximately a third of the total workforce.A recent study estimates that as many as 800 million jobs will be lost to automation worldwide by 2030.

Therefore, concerns about the rise in unemployment due to automation are expected to hinder the growth of the autonomous farm equipment market.

The autonomous farm equipment market covered in this report is segmented by product type into tractors, harvesters, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), others. It is also segmented by technology into partially autonomous, fully autonomous, and by application into agriculture, horticulture, animal husbandry, forestry, others.
