Global Autonomous Farm Equipment Market to Grow By $62.27 Billion From 2019-2023

Research from Technavio finds that the market for Global Autonomous Farm Equipment will grow by $62.67 billion USD from 2019-2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of nearly 15 percent. An excerpt from the report summary reads:

Lack of labor and low yields have driven the need for autonomous farm technology as it requires minimal human intervention. As a result, there is an increased government expenditure towards the development of autonomous agricultural technology. Governments of several countries are increasingly funding and providing grants for autonomous farm technology projects. With the increasing government support for developing autonomous farm technology, the autonomous farm equipment market will witness considerable growth during the forecast period.

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) in autonomous equipment will be one of key autonomous farm equipment market trends that will gain traction in the coming years. AI is being used in autonomous farm equipment to assist in the machine vision of the equipment that helps in detecting objects during operation. Images or videos captured by cameras on vehicles are processed using AI algorithms for better decisions. The adoption of AI will play a significant role in the growth of the autonomous farm equipment market.
