The global tractor market size is projected to produce over 2.8 thousand units by 2023, growing at a CAGR of around 5% during 2017-2023. Agriculture plays a vital role in the economic development and emerging countries; agriculture contributes to the secondary and tertiary sectors to the GDP. The constant shift in dietary patterns is one of the primary factors attributing to the growth of the global tractor market. The increase in urbanization and deforestation is leading to the adoption of smart tech solutions to effectively mitigate the negative effects of agriculture and meet the growing global food demand. The introduction of various innovative agricultural equipment such as rotavators and combines will transform the global industry. The increasing focus on the development of innovative infrastructure for optimal supply chain and growth of supplementing industries and agri-businesses will create lucrative opportunities for vendors operating in the industry. The implementation of advanced technologies such as GPS and telematics is expected to result in increased productivity and efficiency in the agricultural industries across the world. The introduction of precision agriculture and the growing demand for advanced technology will result in the evolution of the global industry. The end-users are using advanced machinery to overcome factors such as encroachment of forest land, indiscriminate water consumption and wastage, unscientific usage of pesticides, and fertilizers. The implementation of innovative agricultural equipment will help to achieve short-term productivity and remove additional constraints to the agricultural value chain. The introduction of farm mechanization will boost demand in the global tractor market.
The use of data derived from farm mechanization will help farmers to use actionable farm insights that can potentially save resources, labor costs, and yield high productivity. The presence of large-size farm structures and intensive farming practices in countries such as United States, Brazil, Russia, and Western Europe will boost the demand for high power machinery.
The rapid emergence of custom hiring center model will attribute to the growth of the global tractor market. The custom hiring of farm machinery refers to renting out of farm machinery for operators that cannot afford to invest in high-value machinery. The growing prominence of “pay as per use” model will boost the demand for innovative machinery. The establishment of custom hiring centers is an ideal scenario to increase farm mechanization and offer access to small farmers to expensive agriculture tractors and equipment at a reasonable price in the world tractor market. The increasing availability of new technologies due to this rent model will encourage farmers to adopt resilient climate practices and sustainable technologies in the global tractor market. For instance, in India, custom hiring centers for farm implements were established in 100 National Innovations on Climate Resilient Agriculture villages that will successfully empower small farmers to improve agriculture operations.
