Increasing penetration of self-driven farm equipment offers comparatively higher productivity as well as enhanced fuel efficiency when compared to manually driven farm equipment. Ongoing technological advancement in the self-steering techniques and obstacle avoidance systems will support product consumption, thus accelerating market demand.

A large percentage of farmers are yet to adopt automation techniques, which creates huge opportunities for startups to enter this lucrative business. Prevailing innovation in robotics and semiconductor technology should boost the application of driverless tractors, drones and harvesters, subsequently augmenting market growth. Though higher cost of these equipment may negatively impact the business growth, consistent focus on reducing the cost effectivity should help the market thrive successfully in the forecast years.  

Will autonomous equipment market gain substantial returns from the partial and fully autonomous segments?

Based on the operation methods, the autonomous equipment market is segmented into fully autonomous and partially autonomous equipment. The partially autonomous segment dominates the market in terms of share by volume, owing to lower price, easy maintenance and high commercialization of these products, especially in the developed nations.

On the other hand, the autonomous equipment segment is propelled by increasing deployment of advanced systems such as GPS and precision farming, and IoT for remote monitoring of the devices. Fully autonomous segment in farm equipment market is projected to substantially grow at a CAGR over 40% during the forecast timeframe.

How will the tractors segment exhibit its prominence over autonomous farm equipment market share?

Tractors segment will lead the autonomous farm equipment market owing to high importance of the device and multirole benefits for carrying out several farm operations. Increasing implementation of self-steering and obstacle avoidance systems in this equipment will drive the business demand. Tractors segment accounted for over 60% of the autonomous farm equipment market share in 2016 and is further estimated to keep growing at a significant pace through the forecast timeframe.
