The European planting and fertilizing machinery market was valued at USD XX billion in the year 2015 and is expected to grow into a USD 3.7 billion market by 2020 growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period. Planting and fertilizing machinery is another extension of the overall mechanization of farming. Of the entire production chain, planting and fertilizing are important process requiring precise distribution patterns. Planting and fertilizing machines play a vital role here as they are calibrated for such high levels of accuracy.
Planting and fertilizing machinery offers solutions to crop farmers to sow the seeds for crop production and spread fertilizers. Despite the fact that tractors and combine harvesters are used widely across the globe, planting and fertilizing machinery use is in growing stages and is in succession to tractors to reduce manual intervention in agriculture. Apart from increasing efficiency, mechanization in planting helps in increasing precision agricultural practices.
The growth observed in the sales of tractors is an important indicator for the advent of farm mechanization. Tractors tend to act as a source of power whereby various agricultural machines can just be attached to it. This co-dependency makes the purchase other equipment easier, once the tractor is purchased. The increasing levels of competition and market uncertainties have led to a large degree of farm consolidations in many regions; thereby increasing the need for farm mechanization. The major hindrance to this market is not from the product itself but from the fertilizers. The negative environmental impact of using fertilizers has been well documented. It is posing a major threat to the market. The high labor costs of the region also drive the mechanization process rapidly.
The report has been segmented based on the various planting and fertilizing machinery types and on geography. Dry Fertilizer Spreaders, Drop Spreaders, Rotary Spreaders, Pendulum Spreaders, Liquid Fertilizer Spreaders/ Sprayers, broadcast seeder, planter, plastic mulch layer, potato planter, seed drill and transplanter form the different types of machinery. Despite an overall design similarity, these machines differ in the method of operation, physio-chemical nature of the seed and fertilizer used and distribution pattern. On the basis of geography, many regions in Europe hold significant and competitive market shares with Spain, UK, Germany, France, Italy and Russia being the major regions. The major players in the market are AGCO, John Deere, CNH, Kubota and various others.
