Key Market Trends

Growing Number of Hire Services for Commercially Sustainable Agricultural Machinery

Over the years, agricultural mechanization has become an integral component of agricultural development globally, resulting in the evolution of agricultural machinery hire services. Studies undertaken by the International Food Policy Research Institute, in 2015, show that the existing private sector tractor-hiring services are less constrained and well established, in most of the developing countries when compared to the underdeveloped countries. Moreover, the development of hiring models, such as individual ownership, group ownership, and state-run model, is strengthening the evolution of hiring services. For instance, around 50 tractor hiring services had evolved in the nation, over a period of 2015-2016. Thus, the pursuit of proper utilization of agricultural machinery for better profitability, coupled with the growing number of machinery hire services, is likely to prospect the sales of agricultural machinery at the farmer entrepreneur level.
Forestry Machinery Market Key Trends

Increasing Usage of Forest Machinery in Europe

Europe is the largest market and is expected to remain the leading as well as the fastest growing market for forestry machinery. Financial support by the common agricultural policy (CAP) to rural areas, and the measures taken by the EU countries in order to encourage  the forestry activities  with the help of  national development programs, continue to maintain the sales of forestry machinery in the region. Growing food demand globally has resulted in aggressive cultivation activities, which in turn has led to the conversion of forest lands into arable lands. This has further resulted in  adoption of mechanized practices,which has created a significant demand for forestry machinery globally.
