Global Agriculture Drones and Robots Market Analysis & Forecast, 2018-2028 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

The "Global Agriculture Drones and Robots Market: Focus on Drones, Robot Type, Farm Produce, Farming Environment, Business Model, Regulations, and Patents - Analysis & Forecast, 2018-2028" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global agricultural industry is currently undergoing a massive transformation, owing to the implementation of smart farming solutions such as agriculture drones and robots, that makes farming profitable by focusing on site-specific planning and variable rate application along with autonomous operations.

The proliferation of robotics and automation in agriculture is fundamentally driven by factors such as the exponentially rising demand for global food production, depleting resources, shrinking arable lands, and increasing shortage of manual labor in agriculture. With the help of government support and associated initiatives by the governing bodies across the world, research institutions have been able to drive extensive innovation in the field of agricultural drones and robots.

Moreover, private players have customized their business models to suit the industry and provide the customers with flexibility to apply these smart farming technologies in their daily farming activities. As a result, the agriculture drones and robots industry is anticipated to progress due to the impending need for more convenient and smart farming solutions than the traditional methods.

The market research study offers a wide perspective of the different types of agriculture drones and robots, different applications of agriculture drones, different farming environments in which robots operate, different types of farm produce the robots operate for, and different business models in which the robots are offered in the market. The study also analyzes their impact on the agriculture sector by providing critical insights into the direction of its future expansion.

The major established players in the market are focusing on product launches and developments to introduce new technologies or developing further on the existing product portfolio. Deere and Co., Trimble Inc., AGCO Corporation, Parrot SA, GEA Farm Technologies, Lely S.a.r.l., Afimilk Ltd., PrecisionHawk., AeroVironment Inc., DeepField Robotics, EcoRobotix, Abundant Robotics, Naio Technologies, and Boumatic Robotics, are some of the prominent players in the agriculture drones and robots market. The market is highly fragmented with the presence of large enterprises and a large number of small- to medium-sized companies that compete with each other.

Moreover, extensive R&D activities and appropriate regulatory environments are also a prerequisite for the sustained growth of this market. Various government and private research institutes and favorable trade policies are putting in substantial efforts to identify the benefits of these agricultural drone and robot solutions for augmenting global food production. The increase in adoption of sophisticated smart farming techniques is necessary to bridge the demand and supply gap along with attaining sustainability in the production.
