Precision Farming Market Drivers and Opportunities

Increasing Reliance on Smartphones

Farmers depend on broadband and wireless networks to obtain information about specific industry-directed knowledge-sharing initiatives, including farming-related progressive solutions. Agriculture mobile apps can be used for collecting data, recording crop scouting activities, tracking machine performance, and controlling drones. As a result, there is an increasing reliance on smartphones to access agriculture mobile apps, such as Digi-Star’s Grain Tracker, My New Holland app, Just In Time Plant Nutrient Calculator, AgDNA, and Cropalyser. These apps are widely used in precision farming.

Growing Demand for Agricultural Robots

An agricultural robot is a robotic device that can advance agricultural processes by taking over farmer’s labor-intensive duties. Agriculture robots make many applications faster, simpler, more precise, and effective. Driverless tractors, drones for data collection and crop monitoring, automated irrigation and harvesting, and autonomous precision seedings are a few of the frequently used agricultural robots for crop farming, soil management, and livestock production. Furthermore, various companies offer agricultural robots for farming, harvesting, picking, and weeding purposes.

Precision Farming Market Report Segmentation Analysis

Key segments that contributed to the derivation of the precision farming market analysis are offering and application.

  • Based on offering, the market is segmented into hardware, software, and services. The hardware segment held the largest market share in 2023. Hardware components such as control systems and automation, sensing devices, and drones play a significant role in helping farmers.
