Planting & Fertilizing Machinery Market Analysis

The planting and fertilizing machinery market is projected to register a CAGR of 3.5% over the forecast period (2020-2025).


  • Increasing tractorization in developing markets, such as India and China, is driving the adoption of planting and fertilizing machinery. These markets are constrained by high labor costs and need for improved efficiency in agricultural operations, driving farmers towards farm mechanization.
  • Commodity prices have a huge role to play in the adoption of agricultural machinery. In an event of lower commodity prices, farmers postpone the purchase of new machinery. The review period has seen an upswing in commodity prices, especially post 2017. Firm commodity prices over the forecast period are expected to reflect in a robust growth rate for the planting and fertilizing machinery over the forecast period.

Planting & Fertilizing Machinery Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Planting & Fertilizing Machinery Market according to our research experts:

Increased Area Under Zero Tillage Boosting the Growth of Seed Cum Fertilizer Drills

Zero tillage is a practice where the residues from the previous crop are retained for the start of the next season. This practice not only provides residual nutrition to the next crop but also prevents the formation of the hardpan in the sub-soil, which gets formed upon extensive tillage. The practice has been gaining popularity across North America and Europe. Seed Cum Fertilizer Drills are ideal equipment to use in zero tillage conditions. The equipment leaves minimal impact on the soil while saving time on using multiple equipment for seeding and fertilizing. Developing markets are also warming up to the practice of zero tillage. For instance, in the major wheat-growing belts of Northern India, the period between the harvesting of the rice crop and sowing of the wheat crop is very much limited and hence, farmers get limited time to till the soil. Farmers, thereby resort to the burning of the stubble of the rice crop, creating huge environmental issues related to air pollution. Organizations and companies are increasingly working with farmers to adopt zero tillage in wheat, in order to solve the time and agronomic issues. With increasing awareness about the environmental impact of stubble burning, Indian farmers are expected to adopt seed cum fertilizer drills over the forecast period.

North America Leads the Global Market

The North American region has been traditionally a market with a high degree of farm mechanization. Farms in the region are high on acreage, and this necessitates the usage of planting and fertilizing machinery for crop operations. The region also has the highest replacement rates of farm machinery across all regions around the globe. Technology has also played a huge role in farmers, switching to more technologically advanced agricultural machinery. For instance, GPS technology is an integral part of precision farming systems. Companies, such as Climate Corporation (part of Monsanto Company), have been developing products that adjust the dosage rates of fertilizers and even select the right variety of seed, based on expected weather for the crop season and soil fertility. Legacy equipment does not have the provision for the installation of these advanced systems and, hence, the adoption of new and advanced planting and fertilizing machinery would be a necessity. This trend is expected to continue into the future, and North America is expected to remain the largest market over the forecast period.
