According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Agricultural Variable Rate Technology Market is accounted for $6.54 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $17.61 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 15.2% during the forecast period. Variable-rate technology is a system that allows varying the rate of crop inputs such as fertilizers, and crop protection chemicals based on the sensed or mapped crop characteristics. It is used to assist the variable rate application of resources in precision agriculture.
The traditional agriculture sector is dependent on laborers for many activities. With technological developments, automation is replacing the task of laborers and allowing the key players to achieve high output in less time. Many government organizations, economists, and policymakers are working in favor of agricultural technological developments. Technologies utilized for agriculture variable rates not only help to reduce the labor cost but also utilize resources in the greatest possible way and minimize wastage, which is higher in traditional farming techniques.
The technologies and equipment utilized in agriculture variable rate, including smart sensors, drones, VRT, GPS, GNSS, guidance tools, and receivers, are extremely efficient but costly. Also, skilled personnel is needed to set up and work on agriculture variable rate equipment. Therefore, in developing with limited resources for agriculture practices, growers opt for traditional farming rather than new technology-based farming because of the requirement of high investments.
Variable-rate technology services include farm operation services and integration and services. These services include farm mapping, soil and moisture management, agronomist services, and others that are being provided by different companies. The entry of leading agriculture variable rate technology players in developing economies has played a major role in driving the agriculture variable rate technology market. The market players provide variable rate technology services on a contractual basis, with periodic monthly or quarterly charges. The presence of such services in developing economies helps in improving the awareness of the benefits of agriculture variable rate technologies.
Agriculture variable rate technologies are still under development and need a high level of knowledge before execution. Agriculture variable rate devices utilize several interfaces, technologies, and protocols. The lack of standardization of these communication interfaces and protocols may result in data misrepresentation. In addition, the lack of technological standardization complicates the integration of systems and hinders the optimum data representation. Most equipment manufacturers utilize their interface communication protocols, which may lead to compatibility issues with other manufacturing brands.
The fertilizers segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth as it is essential to apply nutrients and water according to site-specific conditions to account for spatial and temporal variations; this thereby enhances yields with increased efficiency of application and reduced environmental impacts. The increasing price of crop inputs is driving the demand for the precision application of various farm inputs among which fertilizers are one of the major farm inputs for the healthy crop.
The cereals and grains segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period as cereals and grains are the largest crop type that is being harvested globally. Cereals such as corn and wheat have the highest adoption among various crop type as these are majorly grown on large farms. Variable-rate technologies can be utilized in cereals & grains for a number of purposes like improving plant health by matching fertilizer rates with soil fertility levels, reducing environmental impacts including water runoff, and nutrient loss from fields owing to leaching or runoff.
North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period due to increasing automation and digitization of agriculture creation of new business models, growing adoption of various crops, and rising availability of the variable rate treatment application services in the United States. This region is the key exporter of various agricultural products; the region is dominated by large-scale farm operations, which primary focus on exports is the major driver for the market.
Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to large farmlands and a high population growth rate in this particular region. Moreover, cereals and grains are the largest crop type that is being harvested in this region. Population expansion in the region's developing countries is mounting pressure on the agriculture industry to increase productivity, fueling the demand for the market.
Some of the key players profiled in the Agricultural Variable Rate Technology Market include: Yara International, Valmont Industries, Inc, Trimble, Inc, AGCO Corporation, The Climate Corporation, SZ DJI Technology Co., Ltd., AgJunction, Kubota Corporation, Hexagon, Deere & Company, CNH Industrial NV, Teejet Technologies, Lindsay Corporation, AG Leader Technology and Topcon Corporation.
In December 2021, Kubota Corporation signed an agreement with Bloomfield Robotics, which is a company that delivers plant growth monitoring services to tree crops. The company uses image analysis technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to assess plant growth and detect pests on grape, blueberry, and other tree crops. This will promote the transition to smart agriculture on tree crop farms by building an alliance with Bloomfield through investments.
In August 2021, Deere & Company acquired Bear Flag Robotics. The acquisition accelerates the development and delivery of automation and autonomy on the farm and supports John Deere's long-term strategy to create smarter machines with advanced technology to support individual customer needs.
