Use of advanced technology in agriculture machinery to drive the demand
The demand for two set of tractors is expected to increase during the period 2017–2022. The first being semi-professional, and the second is high HP tractors. Many vendors such as Deere, AGCO, and Kubota are focusing on high HP.
The sale of agriculture tractor in developed countries in 2016 witnessed a decline of an average of (15–20%) due to various factors such as a slowdown in world economic growth, cyclic factors (earlier boom in the agriculture sector in 2012 in many developed countries), and decreased commodity prices. However, the outlook for 2017 remains strong, and the sale of agriculture tractor in developed economies is expected to register a moderate growth rate.
Advancement in agriculture tractor technology such as the use of telematics and GPS, and the increased use of precision farming is going to accelerate the sale. Further, increased farm mechanization in emerging economies and increased replacement demand for agriculture tractors in Western Europe and North America are among the other driving factors of the market.
Below 40 HP agriculture tractor segment will dominate the market
In terms of HP, a definite trend can be observed worldwide for the forecast period. There will be increasing demand for below 40 HP and above 100 HP agriculture tractor in almost all geographies. This is mainly due to the consolidation of small land and increased family-owned farming in countries such as the US.
The below 40 HP segment accounts for more than half of the total agriculture tractor sales, globally. In many regions and countries, this segment contributes more than two-thirds to the overall market. Countries such as India, China, the US, and Africa are witnessing a high demand for low HP agriculture tractors.
APAC to remain the largest market
This report considers four major regions: APAC, Europe, North America, and RoW. The adoption of tractors to conduct agriculture operations varies with geography. While the market in developed economies is saturated, resulting in demand for advanced agriculture tractor, the market in developing economies continues to witness a low penetration. Therefore, the demand for agricultural tractor is coming from developing economies such as India, China, Thailand, and Bangladesh.
Major key countries and regions have started exhibiting the revival in demand for agriculture tractors. Germany, where the demand has been falling continuously since 2013, is witnessing the revival in demand from the beginning of 2017. Similarly, the demand for agriculture tractor from January and February 2017 onwards in the UK was high for the same period in 2016. India and China are also witnessing a positive growth.
In 2022, APAC is expected to account for 72% of the overall market share, whereas the percentage share of North America is expected to decline to 12% in 2022 from 14% in 2016. However, Africa is the fastest growing market, growing at a CAGR of more than 8%, followed by APAC during the forecast period.
