Market Overview

The African Agricultural Robots and Mechatronics Market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period. Agricultural robots and mechatronics are machines used in agriculture to substitute human labor and perform tasks (from plowing to harvesting) better than humans. This machinery is designed to operate in all weather conditions, restricted environments and in crops as well as animal farms. UAVs lead the market here. South Africa is the largest market in terms of revenue in the African region. The growing population and decreasing farmlands make this a region with immense opportunity.

Scope of the report

Agricultural robots and mechatronics support farmers by performing agricultural operations, such as crop and animal sensing, weeding and drilling, integration of autonomous systems technologies into existing farm operational equipment such as tractors, robotic systems to harvest crops, and conduct complex dexterous operations and allied industry operations. 

The African Agricultural Robots and Mechatronics Market is segmented By Type (Autonomous Tractors, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Milking Robots and Other Types), and By Application (Crop Production, Animal Husbandry, Forest Control, and Other Applications).

Key Market Trends

Increased Adoption of Technology in Farming

By curtailing the effects of weather and seasonality and enabling year-round crop production in the country, indoor growing techniques overcome the challenges of fluctuating climatic conditions. Thus, minimal impact of climatic conditions on indoor farming is expected to drive the market for indoor farming equipment that is automated. Light amounts, nutrition levels, and moisture levels can  be controlled by the farmer when they are growing crops solely indoors. Small-scale control systems with robust functionality would allow businesses to better automate their systems and increased yields, while decreasing labor costs. These are a necessity in the market, and the lack of them can act as a restraint for the market.​

Increasing Penetration of UAV Usage in Agriculture

Due to their ease-of-use and low-cost, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or drones can be used for producing time series animations, showing the precise development of a crop. The new generation of agriculture drones are technologically-advanced, which can support in pest control, monitoring soil and crop conditions, mapping, and estimating acreage and crop types. These drones also support in surveying of areas, where there is limited possibility of human to assess. This technology will help farmers in planning of input use, like crop protection chemicals, with the use of common detection methods and to reduce their  monitoring costs. Factors, like effective assessment of farms using drones can help in overall profitability of the farmers, which is expected to drive the unmanned aerial vehicles, during the forecast period.
