How are Advancements in Agriculture Boosting Sales of Autonomous Farm Equipment?

As the agriculture industry is gaining back its potential after overcoming the restraining factors due to the COVID-19 pandemic, requirement for advanced farm monitoring and management solutions is rising again. As a result, autonomous farm equipment suppliers are witnessing high demand owing to various exclusive features of such equipment, such as-

  • Fast & incessant operational capabilities
  • Precise and reliable services
  • Least impact of climate changes
  • Long-term resolution for heavy and complex operations such as harvesting and plowing

According to a report titled ‘Performance of the Agricultural Sector- Statistics Explained’, published by the European Commission (EC), the European Union (EU)-27’s agricultural industry created gross value added of EUR 176.4 billion in 2019, while agriculture contributed 1.3% to the EU-27’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2019. These figures capture a glimpse of the growing opportunities for autonomous farm equipment manufacturers, not only in Europe, but across the world.

Who Is Winning In This Space?

Key players manufacturing autonomous farm equipment are facing cut-throat competition. In order to secure their leading positions, they are launching wider variety of cost-effective, advanced products.
