Population across the globe is on an exponential rise. The U.N. expects the world population that was 7.6 billion in 2017 to reach 9.8 billion by 2050. With an estimate of more than 80 million people being added to the world’s population every year, the demand for basic ingredients involved in their daily needs, such as food, is also expected to grow manifold, subsequently. Moreover, the urban population across the world is rapidly increasing, especially in developing countries. Consequently, the increasing quality of lives of the urban population, due to high income levels, has given rise to a demand for fresh crop produce and animal protein. Thus, with the afore-reported demand for global food production, the pressure of providing continuous supply of quality farm produce at increasing amounts is becoming a cause for concern for growers across the world. Furthermore, shrinking agricultural lands and depletion of availability of natural resources raise the urgency to resolve the concern.

The concerns surrounding the agriculture industry majorly led by the increasing demand for global food production prompt the farmers to enhance farm profitability, despite slowing yield trends in several staple crops. As the improvement in technology is leading to increased efficiency across various industries, the agriculture industry is also relying on the incorporation of smart technologies on farms for profitable farming. With the introduction of advanced information and communication technologies in the farming life cycle since past decade, the agriculture industry has witnessed a new revolution, just as the introduction of farm equipment and machinery, pesticides, fertilizers, and high-yield crop breeds led to a revolution in the previous century. 

As agriculture quickly becomes an exciting high-technology industry, new professionals, companies, and investing bodies are rapidly being drawn in. The development in smart farming technologies has led to not only advancements in production capabilities of farmers but also to the introduction of advanced technology phenomenon in the industry i.e., agricultural drones and robots.

The introduction of agricultural drones and robots is also expected to resolve another looming concern over the farming industry i.e., the shifting structure of agricultural workforce. This change in the global aging demographic has eventually triggered the adoption of automation in farming practices. Agricultural drone and robot manufacturers have seen a positive surge in their sales due to this profound change in the farming industry.

Governments of several countries have realized the need and advantages of smart farming technologies, and thus their initiatives to promote these advanced farming techniques are expected to further drive the growth of the agricultural drones and robots market. The growth of this market is driven by certain other factors such as economic need of precision agriculture and rising labor shortage.

Source: Secondary Research, Expert Views, and BIS Research Analysis

High growth in the global agriculture drones and robots market is expected to be driven by the need to apply site-specific farming, variable rate application of raw materials and resources as per requirements, and declining agricultural labor across the world. Rise in the usage of agricultural robots is growing owing to the increasing applications in agriculture areas, including precision crop farming, livestock monitoring and management, indoor farming, aquaculture, forestry, and orchards, among others. Agricultural robots are also expected to reduce the ecological footprint of daily farming. A large share of market has been driven due to the initiatives, policies, and support shown by governments in countries such as the U.S., the U.K., Germany, France, Australia, and China. In emerging countries, the growth is expected to be driven by rising awareness among governments of different countries about the need to elevate farm produce while taking care of the environment. Furthermore, rising concerns over global food security and sustainability have led to extensive investments by the governments across the world. 

The adoption of drones has extended from being used by hobbyists to be used commercially. The growth in the adoption is majorly driven by increasing portability and wireless mobile connectivity. Drones are finding applications in various end-user industries such as construction, mining, infrastructure, media, and entertainment. However, the agriculture industry is expected to witness the most widespread adoption of drones in the next ten years. Its commercial production has only geared in the last decade from the stage of innovation and incubation to global commercialization. Amongst drone applications, crop spraying and dusting drones are currently minority shareholders in the global agriculture drones market, however the revenue generation through the drones for this application is expected to grow the fastest in the next ten years, with countries in South-East Asia leading the growth in adoption.

The agriculture robots market encompasses a wide array of robot types such as milking robots, harvesting robots, picking, robots, weeding robots, autonomous robot tractors, seeding robots, and pruning robots. These robot types are utilized in different agriculture areas including precision crop farming, livestock monitoring and management, indoor farming, aquaculture, forestry, and orchards, among others. Technology maturation and widespread adoption are the major reasons behind the reported growth of milking robots. Picking robots amongst the robot types have gained the maximum growth due to the increase indoor farms. A large number of picking robots have now only been developed to pick high value fruits and vegetables. As the market matures, the use of picking and harvesting robots is also expected to increase for staple crops.

To promote the growth of agricultural robots, governments and private players have introduced agricultural robots as service. It allows farmers to utilize advanced solutions for selective purposes and enables to pay per use. Traditional mindset with reluctance to change among consumers is one of the major reasons behind the reported growth of Agriculture Robot-as-a-Product business model. However, the Agriculture Robot-as-a-Service business model is expected to create a massive disruption in the agricultural robots market.

Farm produce differs in the agriculture industry varying from field crops, fruits, vegetables to livestock produce, aquatic produce, and flowers. Demand for all kinds of farm produce is on rise due to a macro level demand for global food production. Thus, different agricultural robots are intended to be introduced in the market which could handle a large groups of farm produce. Companies and universities have had their preference for a specific type of produce for different robots due to ease of robot operation, need for high-end farm machinery, and vested interest of funding parties, among others.

Although the trend of indoor farming is catching up, total global produce through indoor farming is nowhere close to the amount of agricultural produce generated through outdoor farming. Thus, the requirement for robots lies heavily for outdoor farming. Prominent robots introduced for indoor farming include pick-and-place robots and picking robots, whereas the prominent robots introduced for outdoor farming include weeding robots and autonomous robot tractors.

The trends of the agriculture robots market vary across different geographical regions. The agriculture drones and robots market holds a prominent share in various countries of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and Rest-of-the-World (RoW). Presently, Europe is at the forefront of the global agriculture drones and robots market. The high revenue generation was majorly credited to a favorable growth rate of agricultural robots for livestock and aquaculture produce in Europe. Looming concern of the lack of manual labor for agriculture is expected to propagate research and development of agricultural robots in the region, leading to further growth of the Europe agricultural robots market during the forecast period. North America generated the second highest revenue in 2017. Large market share of the region has been attributed to the rising need for efficient farming equipment in the large farmlands of the North America to generate profitable crop production. Constantly increasing farm sizes and the rise in global food demand from limited arable land are expected to ensure the future market growth. Although Asia-Pacific has a smaller market share as compared to that of North America and Europe due to the late introduction of agricultural robot technologies and practices, it is expected to have the fastest market growth.

Population across the globe is on an exponential rise. The U.N. expects the world population that was 7.6 billion in 2017 to reach 9.8 billion by 2050. With an estimate of more than 80 million people being added to the world’s population every year, the demand for basic ingredients involved in their daily needs, such as food, is also expected to grow manifold, subsequently. Moreover, the urban population across the world is rapidly increasing, especially in developing countries. Consequently, the increasing quality of lives of the urban population, due to high income levels, has given rise to a demand for fresh crop produce and animal protein. Thus, with the afore-reported demand for global food production, the pressure of providing continuous supply of quality farm produce at increasing amounts is becoming a cause for concern for growers across the world. Furthermore, shrinking agricultural lands and depletion of availability of natural resources raise the urgency to resolve the concern.

The concerns surrounding the agriculture industry majorly led by the increasing demand for global food production prompt the farmers to enhance farm profitability, despite slowing yield trends in several staple crops. As the improvement in technology is leading to increased efficiency across various industries, the agriculture industry is also relying on the incorporation of smart technologies on farms for profitable farming. With the introduction of advanced information and communication technologies in the farming life cycle since past decade, the agriculture industry has witnessed a new revolution, just as the introduction of farm equipment and machinery, pesticides, fertilizers, and high-yield crop breeds led to a revolution in the previous century. 

As agriculture quickly becomes an exciting high-technology industry, new professionals, companies, and investing bodies are rapidly being drawn in. The development in smart farming technologies has led to not only advancements in production capabilities of farmers but also to the introduction of advanced technology phenomenon in the industry i.e., agricultural drones and robots.

The introduction of agricultural drones and robots is also expected to resolve another looming concern over the farming industry i.e., the shifting structure of agricultural workforce. This change in the global aging demographic has eventually triggered the adoption of automation in farming practices. Agricultural drone and robot manufacturers have seen a positive surge in their sales due to this profound change in the farming industry.

Governments of several countries have realized the need and advantages of smart farming technologies, and thus their initiatives to promote these advanced farming techniques are expected to further drive the growth of the agricultural drones and robots market. The growth of this market is driven by certain other factors such as economic need of precision agriculture and rising labor shortage.

Global Agriculture Drones and Robots Market

Source: Secondary Research, Expert Views, and BIS Research Analysis

High growth in the global agriculture drones and robots market is expected to be driven by the need to apply site-specific farming, variable rate application of raw materials and resources as per requirements, and declining agricultural labor across the world. Rise in the usage of agricultural robots is growing owing to the increasing applications in agriculture areas, including precision crop farming, livestock monitoring and management, indoor farming, aquaculture, forestry, and orchards, among others. Agricultural robots are also expected to reduce the ecological footprint of daily farming. A large share of market has been driven due to the initiatives, policies, and support shown by governments in countries such as the U.S., the U.K., Germany, France, Australia, and China. In emerging countries, the growth is expected to be driven by rising awareness among governments of different countries about the need to elevate farm produce while taking care of the environment. Furthermore, rising concerns over global food security and sustainability have led to extensive investments by the governments across the world. 

The adoption of drones has extended from being used by hobbyists to be used commercially. The growth in the adoption is majorly driven by increasing portability and wireless mobile connectivity. Drones are finding applications in various end-user industries such as construction, mining, infrastructure, media, and entertainment. However, the agriculture industry is expected to witness the most widespread adoption of drones in the next ten years. Its commercial production has only geared in the last decade from the stage of innovation and incubation to global commercialization. Amongst drone applications, crop spraying and dusting drones are currently minority shareholders in the global agriculture drones market, however the revenue generation through the drones for this application is expected to grow the fastest in the next ten years, with countries in South-East Asia leading the growth in adoption.

The agriculture robots market encompasses a wide array of robot types such as milking robots, harvesting robots, picking, robots, weeding robots, autonomous robot tractors, seeding robots, and pruning robots. These robot types are utilized in different agriculture areas including precision crop farming, livestock monitoring and management, indoor farming, aquaculture, forestry, and orchards, among others. Technology maturation and widespread adoption are the major reasons behind the reported growth of milking robots. Picking robots amongst the robot types have gained the maximum growth due to the increase indoor farms. A large number of picking robots have now only been developed to pick high value fruits and vegetables. As the market matures, the use of picking and harvesting robots is also expected to increase for staple crops.

To promote the growth of agricultural robots, governments and private players have introduced agricultural robots as service. It allows farmers to utilize advanced solutions for selective purposes and enables to pay per use. Traditional mindset with reluctance to change among consumers is one of the major reasons behind the reported growth of Agriculture Robot-as-a-Product business model. However, the Agriculture Robot-as-a-Service business model is expected to create a massive disruption in the agricultural robots market.

Farm produce differs in the agriculture industry varying from field crops, fruits, vegetables to livestock produce, aquatic produce, and flowers. Demand for all kinds of farm produce is on rise due to a macro level demand for global food production. Thus, different agricultural robots are intended to be introduced in the market which could handle a large groups of farm produce. Companies and universities have had their preference for a specific type of produce for different robots due to ease of robot operation, need for high-end farm machinery, and vested interest of funding parties, among others.

Although the trend of indoor farming is catching up, total global produce through indoor farming is nowhere close to the amount of agricultural produce generated through outdoor farming. Thus, the requirement for robots lies heavily for outdoor farming. Prominent robots introduced for indoor farming include pick-and-place robots and picking robots, whereas the prominent robots introduced for outdoor farming include weeding robots and autonomous robot tractors.

The trends of the agriculture robots market vary across different geographical regions. The agriculture drones and robots market holds a prominent share in various countries of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and Rest-of-the-World (RoW). Presently, Europe is at the forefront of the global agriculture drones and robots market. The high revenue generation was majorly credited to a favorable growth rate of agricultural robots for livestock and aquaculture produce in Europe. Looming concern of the lack of manual labor for agriculture is expected to propagate research and development of agricultural robots in the region, leading to further growth of the Europe agricultural robots market during the forecast period. North America generated the second highest revenue in 2017. Large market share of the region has been attributed to the rising need for efficient farming equipment in the large farmlands of the North America to generate profitable crop production. Constantly increasing farm sizes and the rise in global food demand from limited arable land are expected to ensure the future market growth. Although Asia-Pacific has a smaller market share as compared to that of North America and Europe due to the late introduction of agricultural robot technologies and practices, it is expected to have the fastest market growth.
