The high ability and sophisticated design of machinery, coupled with high production efficiency and machining precision are driving the demand for agricultural machinery in the country. Germany's agricultural machinery manufacturing industry output accounts for 10% of the global output, and the machinery exports from Germany accounted for more than 70%.

France and Germany continued to portray their dominance over agriculture machinery with occupying the largest agricultural tractor markets in Europe. In addition, these two nations are accounting for nearly four of every ten agricultural tractors which are registered in Europe

In Germany, there were in total 34,472 new registrations for agricultural tractors in 2021. In addition, in comparison to the previous year’s figures, this represents an increase of 8.6% in total. Tractors with a power output of more than 50 horsepower made up nearly three-quarters of the registered vehicles. When compared to the previous year, the growth in this power class is modest.
