Sensor is the most important hardware component used in the modern agriculture operations.

Smart farming is about using the new technologies that emerged in agriculture and livestock at the beginning of the fourth industrial revolution to increase production volume and quality by making maximum use of resources and minimizing environmental impact. Also, the implementation of technology in agriculture and livestock will make it possible to improve food security around the world.

The use of smart farming technologies has positive impact of agriculture operations and livestock farming. These technologies offer benefits such as increased efficiency & productivity, water saving, reduced costs, pest detection and animal health, better sustainability, and others. In addition, smart farming helps farmers better understand the important factors such as water, topography, orientation, vegetation and soil types.

Impact of COVID-19

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the research & development has slowed down owing to the lack of funding, halt manufacturing activities, and components or raw material supply chain disruptions.

In addition, positive impact of COVID-19 had been seen on smart farming technologies adoption such as autonomous vehicles, robots, software solutions, and sensors by farmers owing to lack of workers which is resulted in increase in demand for smart farming solutions worldwide.

Market Segmentation

The global smart farming market in the application segment is expected to be dominated by precision farming applications. Rise in use of precision farming applications such as precision irrigation, yield monitoring & forecasting, precision spraying, precision planting, and others are expected to drive the growth of this segment globally.

This is followed by the livestock monitoring and management segment which accounts for the second-largest share in the smart farming market due to increase in awareness and demand towards tracking and monitoring of health of livestock across the globe.

The hardware segment is estimated to capture highest market share during the period 2022 to 2027. The hardware equipment is increasingly used in the various farming operations. In addition, the increasing adoption of intelligent or autonomous vehicles integrated with sensors and navigation systems, computer vision is expected to drive the growth of the smart farming market worldwide.

Moreover, increase in penetration of integrated hardware and software technologies are expected to increase the production and efficiency of farms which in turn is projected to drive the market growth in the coming years.

North America dominated the smart farming market in 2021 and is anticipated to uphold its dominance throughout the forecast period. The growth in the market is majorly driven by the increasing research and development activities and large-scale adoption of digital technologies.
