Precision Farming Industry Overview

The global precision farming market size is estimated to grow at an annualized growth rate of 9.1% during the forecast period 2024-2035 and is expected to reach over USD 27.3 billion by 2035.

The global precision farming market size is estimated to grow at an annualized growth rate of 9.1% during the forecast period 2024-2035 and is expected to reach over USD 27.3 billion by 2035. Precision agriculture is the concept of managing farm practices using various tools and technologies which observe, analyze and responds to the inter-field and intra-field variability in the crops. The rise in demand for food, agricultural labor shortage and growing preference for sustainable farming practices, have spurred a requirement for digitally integrated solutions in the domain of agriculture. These solutions streamline end-to-end farming operations, thereby increasing crop yield while minimizing the impact on the environment. Precision farming has emerged as a promising alternative to conventional agriculture methods, as it addresses the various limitations, including labor-intensive practices, uncertain weather changes, poor yield quality, reduced crop productivity and wastage of water. Given the numerous advantages of precision farming, their demand has increased considerably, resulting in significant growth of precision farming market.

Market Drivers

Several factors are propelling the growth of the precision farming market. The extensive use of chemicals, pesticides, and fertilizers in conventional farming methods have impacted soil health negatively and has decreased crop productivity. This has created immense pressure on the agriculture industry to use eco-friendly precision farming techniques to achieve high crop yield and quality in shorter time duration. Owing to the exponential rise in the population, growing preference for sustainable farming practices and increasing adoption of organic food products, the demand for precision farming is also expected to witness a significant rise.

Market Restraints 

While the precision farming market is experiencing substantial growth, there are certain restraints that can potentially hinder the growth of the industry. One of the primary restraints is the high cost associated with various technologies and infrastructure required for precision farming. The agriculture sector has been facing challenges in implementing technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, internet of things, and cloud computing. Moreover, lack of high-speed internet connection poses the barrier in adoption of precision farming technologies, as it hinders the real-time data collection and analyses. This poses the barrier to adoption of precision farming technologies, especially in developing countries. Additionally, lack of technical knowledge in the field of precision farming prevents farmers from implementing digital solutions and poses widespread deployment of these technologies.

Growth Factors

Despite various challenges, several growth factors continue to drive the market forward. The increase in the support from the government for adoption of precision farming in various regions has been the primary reason for substantial growth of the market. The government has also initiated offering subsidies and incentives to support adoption of precision farming in many developing countries. Additionally, the exponential rise in the cost of land and agriculture labor shortage in recent years, has captivated the farmers to invest largely in the automatic machine, AI-driven technologies and tools. Considering the increasing pace of innovation and research activity, the precision farming market is anticipated to witness a steady growth in the foreseen future.
