The North America agricultural sprayers market was valued at USD 982.0 million in 2017 and is expected to register a CAGR of 4.1% during the forecast period (2018-2023). The government of North America spends approximately USD 45 billion on agricultural subsidies to farmers. North America is one of the most important regions with the highest imports and exports of agricultural sprayers.
The United States is a chief producer of major crops, such as wheat, soybean, and corn, which has driven the agricultural sprayer market in the country. The diverse agricultural economy of Mexico offers many applications of agricultural sprayers. Mexico is the largest export market for US agricultural sprayers. In 2015, US exported of agricultural sprayers to Mexico, valued at USD 78.4 billion. As the sizes of the farm are increasing, there is a huge demand from producers for sprayers. Self-propelled machines and pull-type sprayers are few types of sprayers that have been the beneficiaries of this trend.
Technological Developments in Spraying Equipment
Various technologies, such as drones, driverless sprayers, etc., are providing important and attractive opportunities for the growth of the agricultural sprayer market. A drone uses latest technologies of various tiny sensors, such as accelerometers, GPS modules, powerful processors, and digital radios, to provide the farmers with information. Use of drones helps farmers in scouting for pests and diseases and in mid-field weed identification. Positioning technologies, such as combining GPS (Global Positioning System) and GIS (Geographic Information Systems) have made yield mapping very easy and help farmers work in the field even under adverse conditions, such as rain, fog, dust, etc. GPS mapping, along with simulation modelling, helps in application of precise amounts of pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides, and their dispersion for higher yield. It also enables farmers to protect the environment by providing the correct amount of pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides only in the regions where it is the most essential. Companies are constantly upgrading their technology to meet the growing technology demand. Companies in North America are investing heavily in R&D to come up with new products to cater to a large segment of customers.
Lack of Technical Knowledge and Skill
Crop protection chemicals have the potential to kill the crops if they are over dosed (acute) or under dosed (chronic). With farm workers, who are unaware about the dosage limits, and where pesticides risks are higher they require proper knowledge about integrated pest management programs. Many farmers are not adopting sprayers in their farms, due lack of technological skills. Farmers’ training is essential for using various sprayers. Lack of proper information and lack of economic means to gather and understand information needed to operate the sprayers are reasons for lower adoption rate of this farming approach. Improper usage can damage equipment and repairing them could be very expensive for the farmers. Operational, technical, and verbal skills are most needed skills for people who use sprayers to excel in the field
United States dominate the North American Agricultural Sprayers Market by Geography in terms of Revenue
The United States holds the largest market share of 44.3%, of agricultural sprayers, in North America. It is followed by Mexico, with 32.8% of market share. The United States market for agricultural sprayers was valued at USD 435.4 million in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 544.1 million by 2023, and is estimated to register a CAGR of 3.7%, during the forecast period. The United States is one of the largest exporters of agricultural sprayers to other regions, including Mexico and Canada, with total share in the world exports accounting for 25.7% and 13.6%, respectively. Increased adoption of agricultural technology has driven the market for agricultural sprayers in the United States. Demand for agricultural sprayers has also been rising, due to the development of new agrochemicals, which can be applied by sprayers.
