Several years of technology advancements have transformed the engineering design and delivery system of seeding and fertilizing machinery. Currently, a wide variety of sophisticated planting and fertilizing machinery are available in the market suitable for use in a broad range of planting conditions, terrains and crop type. Technology advancements poised to benefit market expansion in the near term include machinery with computer controlled metering of seed and fertilizer flow, wireless connectivity, automatic boom section control, assisted steering and boom height control systems, and complete hands-free operation, among others.

As the world braces itself for the expected population growth and increase in demand for food, long term growth in the market will be driven by increasing farm production capacities, which in turn will increase demand for planting & fertilizing equipment. Other factors poised to benefit the market in the coming years include improving farm income, credit availability, and scarcity of farm labor. Urbanization represents a key factor responsible for consolidation of farms into larger farming plots, which is expected to generate demand for larger machinery. With shortages in farm labor supply, bigger equipment assumes mission critical importance in effectively managing large scale farm activities. In the coming years, developed countries are expected to witness increased demand for high capacity sprayers of over 1200 gallons.

As stated by the new market research report on Planting and Fertilizing Machinery, Asia-Pacific represents the largest as well as the fastest growing market worldwide with a CAGR of 8.7% over the analysis period. There exists ample scope for expansion of land for agriculture in the developing and under-developed nations. Increase in arable land and mounting pressure on the agriculture sector to raise productivity levels to feed the expanding population represent the most important growth driver in the region. Other factors favoring growth include relatively lower levels of mechanization, use of inefficient farm equipment, and shrinkage in rural agricultural labor force with large sections of the rural population migrating to urban parts. Agriculturists are compelled to invest in machinery for planting and fertilizing and other farming jobs that were earlier carried out manually.

Key players covered in the report include AGCO Corp, Buhler Industries Inc., CNH Industrial N.V., Deere & Company, Great Plains Ag, Iseki & Co., Ltd., Kasco Manufacturing, Kubota Corp., Kverneland Group, and Kuhn Group, among others.
