Precision Agriculture/Agriculture Market Size, Share, Key Players, Growth Trend and Forecast, 2020-2028 – FortBendNow

The growing use of IoT in the agricultural sector is contributing to the growth of the precision agriculture market. Agricultural managers and producers are leveraging the capabilities of IoT devices, such as sensors, GPS and GNSS systems, and automated steering systems, for soil sampling, temperature monitoring, field mapping, irrigation management and several other applications.

Market Size – USD 6.33 Billion in 2020, Market Growth – CAGR of 12.7%, Market Trends – New Product Launches and Growing Use of IoT in Farming/Farming Practices

According to current report and data analysis, the global Precision Agriculture/Agriculture Market was valued at USD 6.33 Billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 17.05 Billion by 2028, with a CAGR of 12.7%. This strong growth is mainly attributable to an increasing use of GPS and GIS systems to monitor agricultural parameters. These terrain mapping systems help collect real-time data and allow analysis of a huge geospatial data set. These systems facilitate field mapping, soil sampling and agricultural planning and help farmers adopt effective soil or plant treatment strategies, thereby increasing agricultural production. Additionally, sensors are placed throughout the field that measure temperature, nutrition level and soil moisture. Therefore, the technology eliminates manual human efforts by automating crucial processes including real-time farm monitoring and information sharing.

Precision farming is rapidly gaining popularity among farmers due to the growing need for optimal production with available resources. In addition, changing weather conditions due to increased global warming have necessitated the adoption of advanced technologies to improve crop productivity and yield. Another factor contributing to the growth of the precision agriculture market is the massive use of drones and aircraft for precision agriculture operations. Drones have become a great alternative to traditional surveying and data collection methods on farms. By using drones for crop monitoring, farm owners can significantly reduce their production costs and reduce the required man-hours and workload. Players operating in the market are developing modern agriculture-focused drones with sophisticated precision and accuracy to increase productivity.

The major factors driving precision agriculture/farming technology are the increasing use of cloud-based technology, the increasing use of smart phones, and the increasing application of technology in agriculture/farming in the aim of minimizing human efforts and losses. Additionally, the need to maximize food production through the optimum utilization of resources is driving the growth of the market globally. In addition, government incentives and subsidies aimed at increasing productivity and preserving the environment are expected to catalyze the demand for agriculture/precision agriculture. Some of the other factors affecting the overall market growth are changing climatic conditions, rapid urbanization, and increasing application of navigation systems.

The major market constraints are the affordability of the technology and the lack of awareness of the benefits of precision agriculture among farmers, especially in developing countries of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, India. Indonesia and Thailand, among others.
