Market Overview

The agriculture machinery market is estimated to register a CAGR of 8.0% during the forecast period, 2021-2026. With such a drastic COVID-19 impact, the agriculture machinery industry requested some flexibility for machines to be fitted with transition engines already manufactured and procured before the crisis. As global supply chains were disrupted and manufacturing industries closed down in accordance with government measures to prevent the spread of the virus, the market has slowed down during the pandemic. Tractors accounted for over 50.0% of the market share in the global agricultural machinery market in 2020.

High demand for agricultural products and increasing farm mechanization rates in developing countries are driving the growth in the industry. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow rapidly over the forecast period due to the increase in population in countries, particularly India and China, followed by Europe and North America. The market concentration for agricultural machinery is consolidated with the presence of a few large players, like AGCO Corporation, Deere and Company, Iseki Co. Ltd, and CNH Industrial NV, which are dominating the market.

Scope of the Report

Agricultural machinery includes machines used on fields like harvesting machinery, haying and forage machinery, irrigation machinery, and other types, which are considered in the research scope. The market is segmented by type (tractors, plowing and cultivating machinery, planting machinery, irrigation machinery, harvesting machinery, and other types) and geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and Africa).

Key Market Trends

Growing Demand for Farm Mechanization in India

The global market for agricultural machinery is driven by the increasing rates of mechanization in developing countries. Tractors accounted for over half of the market share in the agricultural machinery market in 2020. The main reason behind the increase in farm mechanization is the decreased percentage of agricultural labor across the globe. Farm mechanization emerges as an important technological intervention for giving the desired productivity push to the country’s agricultural sector. Moreover, leveraging mechanization by means of custom hiring services (CHSs) not only helps in increasing agricultural productivity but also in identifying ways of increasing the and adoption of mechanized farming by a larger group of small and marginal farmers.

Asia-Pacific is the Fastest Growing Region

The Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow rapidly due to the high demand for agricultural products, particularly from India and China, over the forecast period. Within Asia, China dominates in terms of production and sale of agriculture equipment, while India, Japan, and Australia are expected to contribute a significant share in the global market in the coming years, surpassing Europe as the largest market. The population in the region is rising, driving the need for the mechanization of agriculture. Owing to the high demand and increasing labor costs, the tractor market in the region is estimated to register a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period. According to the World Bank database, the total population in the Asia-Pacific region is set to reach 4.17 billion in 2030. This further signifies that the demand for food and other agricultural products will continue to grow, thereby surging the demand for agricultural machinery to achieve optimal efficiency in production.
