Precision Farming Market To Reach $5.5 Billion With 12.64% CAGR Forecast To 2020

The global precision farming market which is projected to witness CAGR of 12.64% over the period 2014 to 2020, will cross $ 5.5 billion in total market value by the end of forecast period.

Precision Agriculture involves systems, services and activities that collect, monitor, track, manipulate and analyze data pertaining to agriculture and farming namely information about the soil, crop, water, climate, yield, nutrients and other environmental factors. More so, the technology primarily handles the variability in the above mentioned factors. Precision Agriculture not only ensures efficient use of resources, maximizes output and profitability, but also provides a sustainable solution to farm management practices.

The global precision farming market which is projected to witness CAGR of 12.64% over the period 2014 to 2020, will cross $ 5.5 billion in total market value by the end of forecast period. The high growth in this sector is credited to growth in the agricultural industry, governmental incentives and subsidies, pressure for food crops due to a rise in population, the need to pay attention to crop health and crop yield in order to increase productivity, cost effectiveness and the recent integration of IT and Big Data Analytics into agriculture.

The domain has some constraints such as high initial costs of investment, lack of technological skills, slow penetration of technology, unwillingness to adopt the latest technologies and lack of common standards for farming practices. The areas in Precision Farming that have scope and are yet to be explored are many.

The APAC market that has yet to catch up with its growing demand of food crops, the anticipated growth in the Variable Rate Applications (VRA) market, opportunities in the application of drones and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) in Precision Farming Practices and the growing environmental issues are some of the areas of opportunities.

The precision market can be segmented on the basis of technology (GNSS/GPS Systems, GIS, Remote Sensing, Variable Rate Technology), hardware (Automation and System Control: Display, Guidance, GPS/GNSS, Communication Devices, Flow and Application Control Devices, Sensing and Monitoring Devices: Yield, Soil, Water and Climate Sensors), software (Software and Services of Farm Management System), application (Soil Mapping and Yield Mapping, Crop Scouting, Yield Monitoring, Soil Monitoring, Precision Irrigation, Variable Rate Application) and Geography. The APAC has been identified as a region which is yet to reach its maximum potential in the precise farming domain.
