Key Market Trends

Increasing Average Farm Size

The increasing farm size in the country is leading to a drop in the number of farms in the United States. According to USDA, there were 2.06 million farms in 2016, which has decreased to 2.05 million farms in 2017. Almost 50% of the farms in the country are family-operated farms with annual sales of USD 10,000 and their average farm size is around 309 acres in 2017. The major reason for the consolidation of the farm is profitability. Larger the farm size higher the profitability. According to USDA in 2017, 74% of the farm with an average gross farm cash income of USD 5 million is running with 10% of gross profit margin, with a farm size of around 1100-1200 acres approximately.

Cultivators & tillers holds largest share in ploughing and cultivating machinery segment

The cultivators and tillers are projected to witness a CAGR of 3.7% during the forecast period (2020-2025). There has been a rising concept of incorporating autonomous robotics into agriculture, to reduce the reliance on manual labor, while increasing efficiency, product yield, and quality. In response to this, an automated cultivator has been developed by the US Davis Smart Farm, California, as a part of its research initiative in March 2018. These new developments can enhance the growth of cultivators in the market. Owing to the factors that no-till farm practice can lead to the rise of pests than till based farming practices is boosting the market for cultivators and tillers in the country.
