Global Agricultural Robots and Drones Report 2018-2038: Analysis & Forecasts of Key Technologies, Markets and Players -

DUBLIN--()--The "Agricultural Robots and Drones 2018-2038: Technologies, Markets and Players" report has been added to's offering.

This report is focused on agricultural robots and drones. It analyses how robotic market and technology developments will change the business of agriculture, enabling ultra-precision and/or autonomous farming and helping address key global challenges.

It develops a detailed roadmap of how robotic technology will enter into different aspects of agriculture, how it will change the way farming is done and transform it's value chain, how it becomes the future of agrochemicals business and how it will modify the way we design agricultural machinery.

In the report, granular twenty-year (2018-2038) market forecasts for 16 market categories are provided. We built a twenty-year model because the technology roadmap suggests that these changes will take place over long timescales. The market forecasts are often segmented by territory. All assumptions and data points are clearly explained.

More specifically, the following 16 categories are covered: static milking robots, mobile dairy farm robotics, autonomous agricultural small robots (data scouts, weeding and multi-platform), autonomous tractors (simple guidance, autosteer, fully unmanned autonomy), robotic implements (simple and highly intelligent), robotic strawberry harvesting, robotic fresh fruit picking, and agricultural drones (data scouts, data services/analytics, multi-functional drones, unmanned spraying helicopters).

Technology assessment: The report provides a detailed technology assessment covering all the key robotic/drone projects, prototypes and commercial products relevant to the agricultural sector. Furthermore, we offer an overview and assessment of key technological components such as vision sensors, LIDARs, novel end-effectors, and hyper/multi-spectral sensors. The technology roadmaps also outline how different equipment is increasingly becoming vision-enabled, intelligent and unmanned/autonomous.

This report also analyses the key enabling hardware and software technologies underpinning new robotics. For the hardware part, we consider long-term price and performance trends in transistors, memory, energy storage, electric motors, GPS, cameras, and MEMS technology. For the software side, we consider the latest achievements in deep learning applications in various fields.

Application assessment: A detailed application assessment covering dairy farms, fresh fruit harvesting, organic farming, crop protection, data mapping, seeding, nurseries, and so on. For each application/sector, a detailed overview of the existing industry is given, the needs for and the challenges facing the robotic technology are analysed, the addressable market size is estimated by territory, and granular ten-year market projections are given.

Company profiles: More than 20 interview-based full company profiles with detailed SWOT analysis, 45 company profiles without SWOT analysis, and the works of more than 80 companies/research groups listed and summarized.

20-year market forecasts for all aspects of agricultural robots and drones. Note that in our previously-published forecasts we had primarily disclosed the forecast at the level of the value of the automation suite and not the entire vehicle automation level. Further note that we have now transitioned our forecast model to a 20-year timescale. We believe this is sensible since many changes will take place on long time scales. We have also defined some of our forecast categories to better reflect the market changes. Further note that the market could reach higher levels (close to $45Bn by 2038) in a highly accelerated technology progression and market adoption scenario. This scenario is not included in the report.
