Global AI in Agriculture to see CAGR of 26.2% from 2019-2025
A report from Research and Markets finds that the global AI in Agriculture market will see a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 26.2 percent in the forecast period 2019-2025. The research finds that technologies such as machine learning and facial recognition will be leveraged as the market grows to foster larger crop yields and improve livestock monitoring. An excerpt from the report description outlines the impact of dwindling labour on the growth of AI in the market:
Across the world, a huge decline of the workforce is observed due to many reasons, like the lack of skilled labor, aging of farmers, and young farmers finding farming an unattractive profession, thus encouraging trends for automated farming operations. According to the International Labor Organization(ILO), agricultural labors in the percentage of the workforce declined from 81% to 48.2% in developing countries. Also, developed countries are not an exception in such a huge decline. Asia-Pacific, where agriculture occupies a major part of the economy, has a huge decline in workforce, which was nearly about 9% from 2015 to 2017. In Japan, the number of people working in farms witnessed a steep fall to 1.7 million in the year 2015, a 15% decline from the previous year.
The European agriculture sector has also faced such a huge decline in the workforce, which is nearly accounting to 12.8% for the corresponding period. The trend of decline in the agricultural workforce is encouraging government and private organizations to focus on automation operations by adopting artificial intelligence technologies in the agriculture sector. Owing to the above factors, the market for artificial intelligence in the agricultural sector is likely to boom in the years to come.
