Report Summary

The global agriculture drones and robots market is expected to reach $30.08 billion by 2026.

Global Agriculture Drones and Robots Market

Evolution in agriculture technology began over 10,000 years ago when farmers started using simple hand tools that gradually evolved into mechanical equipment used today. For instance, tractors have replaced horse ox and, to some extent, human labor as well for off-field operations. However, the implementation of tractors is not flexible due to certain limitations, and hence adoption of other automated equipment is increasingly being adopted in the agriculture industry. However, the agriculture industry is currently transitioning from low technical mechanization to high-tech mechanization. High tech mechanization aims to use sensors and other automated fusions as it uses software-based AI. The technology makes use of technologies such as drones and robots to bring efficiency to farming operations.

Global Agriculture Drones and Robots Industry Overview

The global agriculture drones and robots market is expected to reach $30.08 billion by 2026, with a CAGR of 22.3% during the forecast period 2021-2026. The primary drivers for the market growth include increasing automation in the agriculture industry and the shortage of manual labor in the sector.

Several countries are taking initiatives to bring automation and sustainability in the agriculture sector to enhance profitability and bring efficiency in farming applications. For instance, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) invested $21.7 million in April 2021 in several key programs to help agricultural producers manage the impacts of climate change on their lands and production. The funding aims to bring innovation in agriculture technologies, triggering the demand for agriculture drones and robots in the country.

Market Segmentation

Global Agriculture Drones and Robots Market by Robot Type

Milking robots are automated milking systems that are used in dairy farms to provide more efficiency to the farmers. These robots are used in multiple operations such as feeding, milking, and sweeping bunks of cows. These robots have a high demand in countries like the Netherlands, where farmers seek to increase the profitability of farms with a smaller number of laborers.

Global Agriculture Drones and Robots Market by Robot Application

Dairy farm automation is highly increasing across the globe due to rising concerns for animal welfare among farmers. By using agriculture robots in dairy farms, farmers can easily track the feeding patterns of cattle and their behavior which can further help in giving them proper treatments in case of sickness.

Global Agriculture Drones and Robots Market by Region

Europe is the largest market for agriculture drones and robots due to high technological advancement in the region and the lack of manual labor in the region. Furthermore, several government initiatives exist to promote the adoption of agricultural robots in the region, such as the Robs4Crops project introduced in June 2021 by the European Union (EU).

Report Summary

Global Agriculture Drones and Robots Market

Evolution in agriculture technology began over 10,000 years ago when farmers started using simple hand tools that gradually evolved into mechanical equipment used today. For instance, tractors have replaced horse ox and, to some extent, human labor as well for off-field operations. However, the implementation of tractors is not flexible due to certain limitations, and hence adoption of other automated equipment is increasingly being adopted in the agriculture industry. However, the agriculture industry is currently transitioning from low technical mechanization to high-tech mechanization. High tech mechanization aims to use sensors and other automated fusions as it uses software-based AI. The technology makes use of technologies such as drones and robots to bring efficiency to farming operations.

Global Agriculture Drones and Robots Industry Overview

The global agriculture drones and robots market is expected to reach $30.08 billion by 2026, with a CAGR of 22.3% during the forecast period 2021-2026. The primary drivers for the market growth include increasing automation in the agriculture industry and the shortage of manual labor in the sector.

Several countries are taking initiatives to bring automation and sustainability in the agriculture sector to enhance profitability and bring efficiency in farming applications. For instance, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) invested $21.7 million in April 2021 in several key programs to help agricultural producers manage the impacts of climate change on their lands and production. The funding aims to bring innovation in agriculture technologies, triggering the demand for agriculture drones and robots in the country.

Market Segmentation

Global Agriculture Drones and Robots Market by Robot Type

Milking robots are automated milking systems that are used in dairy farms to provide more efficiency to the farmers. These robots are used in multiple operations such as feeding, milking, and sweeping bunks of cows. These robots have a high demand in countries like the Netherlands, where farmers seek to increase the profitability of farms with a smaller number of laborers.

Global Agriculture Drones and Robots Market by Robot Application

Dairy farm automation is highly increasing across the globe due to rising concerns for animal welfare among farmers. By using agriculture robots in dairy farms, farmers can easily track the feeding patterns of cattle and their behavior which can further help in giving them proper treatments in case of sickness.

Global Agriculture Drones and Robots Market by Region

Europe is the largest market for agriculture drones and robots due to high technological advancement in the region and the lack of manual labor in the region.
