Research and Markets Logo

The smart agriculture market is estimated to be worth USD 7.53 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 13.50 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 12.39% between 2018 and 2023.

Major factors contributing to the growth of the smart agriculture market include the increasing adoption of advanced technologies in various agriculture applications such as precision farming, smart green house, livestock monitoring, and fish farm monitoring. Changing weather patterns due to increasing global warming have impelled the adoption of advanced farming technologies to enhance farm productivity and crop yield. Farmers or growers across the globe are increasingly adopting advanced farming devices and equipment such as steering and guidance, sensors, yield monitors, display devices, and farm management software.

The smart agriculture market has been segmented on the basis of offering, type, application, and region. On the basis of offering, the smart agriculture market has been classified into hardware, software, and services. Hardware held the largest market share in 2017 owing to the high adoption of automation and control devices, such as drones/UAVs, GPS/GNSS, irrigation controllers, guidance and steering systems, yield monitors, and sensors. In the yield monitoring process, sensors and GPS devices play a vital role in measuring various yield parameters. It also uses GPS-based auto-guidance technology in agricultural vehicles to reduce the overlapping of equipment and tractor passes, thus saving fuel, labor, time, and soil compaction. Increasing demand for automation and control devices, and monitoring and sensing devices is the major factor that is likely to contribute to the growth of the smart agriculture market for hardware.

On the basis of type, the smart agriculture market has been segmented into precision farming, livestock monitoring, fish farm monitoring, smart greenhouse, and others. Precision farming held the largest market size in 2017. The high adoption of precision farming technologies such as positioning systems, remote sensing, guidance system, and variable rate technology by farmers across the globe are the main reason for a larger market size of precision farming agriculture type. Increasing demand for these technologies is driving the growth of the market for precision farming. Precision farming can be used in a wide range of applications, from a single GPS-enabled guidance system for a piece of farm equipment to a more complex function such as the remote monitoring and controlling of multiple in-field devices using an integrated software platform.

Various applications pertaining to smart agriculture market include yield monitoring, field mapping, weather tracking and forecasting, feeding management, milk harvesting, fish tracking, and HVAC management. Yield monitoring is the most widely used application; as a result, this segment held the largest market size in 2017. Yield monitors can be a combination of various components such as mass flow sensors, moisture sensors, ground speed sensors, GPS receivers, and a task computer located nearby, which controls the integration and interaction of these components.
