Additionally, the use of these controllers and monitors will enable the right usage of fertilizers, pesticides, and insecticides, thereby, preventing the deterioration of soil quality and initiates cost savings. The government initiatives and subsides will encourage the implementation of digital set-up and procurement of smart infrastructure in the market. Digitalization will result in faster sharing of valuable information across geographies and the markets will improve the economic conditions in the overall agricultural industries. The increasing in retail and industrial consumption will propel the growth

The recent trends of urbanization, lifestyle changes, resource exploitation, and innovative communication systems will augment the industry growth. The increasing adoption of efficient and sustainable farming practices to ensure better food security and safety are one of the primary factors contributing to the use of smart systems in the agriculture industry. 

Precision Agricluture Market Revenue by 2023 & Growth in CAGR



The implementation of regulatory frameworks that helps to impart better clarity on UAV usage will augment industry growth. The use of this precision agriculture system enables uses various monitoring and data capturing systems which helps farmers and organizations to derive meaningful insights and increase productivity in farms across the globe. The use of drones helps offer aerial imagery that can reveal patterns and expose variations related to soil variation, water distribution, and pest and fungal infestations. The establishment of regulatory policies and rules will enable government agencies to regulate and monitor activities of drones used in precision farming techniques so that it does not infringe human privacy, ground safety, data proprietorship, and cause any disturbance to civil aviation. The establishment of regulations in countries such as Australia, the UK, Germany, and Denmark will encourage the adoption of UAVs for commercial purposes in the global precision farming market.
