DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Agricultural Robots Market by Offering, Type (UAVs, Milking Robots, Driverless Tractors, Automated Harvesting Systems), Farming Environment, Farm Produce, Application (Harvest Management, Field Farming), Geography - Global Forecast to 2025" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
A shortage of new farmers, as indicated by the rising average age of farmers is driving the further use of automated agricultural equipment as well as the development of new agricultural robots. Development is taking place in all aspects of agriculture, such as imaging, navigation, planting, weeding, and harvesting. Large farms are also collaborating with companies developing agricultural technology to drive down costs and to maintain their cost advantage in the market. Increasing the requirement for food globally will also require increasing productivity, which can only be achieved through robotic automation.
UAVs are expected to maintain its market dominance during the forecast period
UAVs are expected to maintain the largest share of the market compared to other agricultural robots. Drones are the most inexpensive agricultural robots and can be deployed in all farms regarding their size. Different variants of drones are available for different tasks. Fixed-wing drones, offered by companies such as AgEagle Aerial Systems (US) are suitable for crop and livestock imaging. Rotary blade drones, such as those offered by DJI (China) have a more stable flight and can be used for precision spraying applications. Most drone manufacturers also offer specialized software for farmers to gain actionable insights from captured data.
Hardware components are expected to have the largest share of the market
Hardware components, consisting of automation & control Systems and sensing & monitoring devices will continue to have the largest share of the market compared to either software or services. As agricultural robots are highly specialized in their design, they require specialized mechanical components and sensors to operate. These add a significant cost to the price of a robot. A strawberry picking robot cannot be programmed to be used for kiwi harvesting. Hardware systems are paramount to productivity, through faster working speed and reduced operational errors. Increased use of sensors and navigation modules in agricultural robots also contribute to the large market share of hardware.
The market in the US is expected to have the largest share of the market
Large farms and focus on agricultural productivity is one of the primary reason for the US having the largest market share when compared to other regions. With increasing restrictions on immigration and shortage of farm labor, large farms are investing in companies that develop agricultural robots. HARVEST CROO (US) is one such company and is mainly funded by large strawberry farm operators. Robotic harvesting vehicles are also being tested in Florida and California to harvest other fruits such as apples and grapes to automate labor-intensive tasks. Countries such as Canada, Mexico, and Brazil are also adopting various agricultural robots. Hence, North America is expected to have the highest share of the market.
