$25+ Billion Smart Agriculture Markets - Global Forecast to 2028: Rising Global Population and Emergence of Agriculture 4.0 to Fuel Market Growth

Dublin, Aug. 22, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Smart Agriculture Market by Offering (Hardware, Software, Services), Agriculture Type, Farm Size (Large, Medium, Small), Application (Precision Farming, Livestock Monitoring) and Region (America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, RoW) - Forecast to 2028" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The market is projected to surge from an estimated USD 16.2 billion in 2023 to a robust USD 25.4 billion by 2028, boasting a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 9.4% during this period.

Innovative farming techniques powered by Internet of Things (IoT) are reshaping the agricultural landscape, driving the global smart agriculture market to new heights.

Smart agriculture encompasses a range of IoT-based farming products that empower farmers to optimize crop yields and enhance livestock health through remote monitoring and data-driven decision-making. Advanced technologies including artificial intelligence, cloud-based machine learning, satellite imagery, GPS devices, and sophisticated analytics are providing small farm owners the means to bolster profitability by achieving higher crop yields and better price control.

The increasing global population's demand for food coupled with a shortage of skilled labor in the agriculture sector are prime drivers behind the expansion of the smart agriculture market. As the world grapples with a growing need for sustenance, the market is poised to revolutionize traditional farming practices, heralding a more efficient and productive era for agriculture.

In 2022, the Americas emerged as a stronghold for the smart agriculture market, securing the largest market share. It was followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the rest of the world. The prevalence of key industry players offering smart agriculture solutions, escalating water scarcity concerns, rising food demand, and the prevalence of medium and large farms are the pivotal growth catalysts for the Americas.

The North American region, in particular, stands as a trailblazer in the smart agriculture domain. Governments here are propelling the sector's growth by incentivizing farm owners to adopt smart irrigation tools through rebates and subsidies.

Leading the charge in the smart agriculture arena are industry giants such as Deere & Company (US), Trimble Inc. (US), AGCO Corporation (US), Topcon Positioning Systems (US), and DeLaval (Sweden), among others. With technology at the forefront, the smart agriculture market is ushering in an era of data-driven agricultural revolution, reshaping how farming is conducted on a global scale.

Precision farming segment to lead smart agriculture market from 2023 to 2028

The rapid adoption of state-of-the-art technologies and innovative devices to cultivate high-yield crops is expected to drive the growth of the precision farming market during the forecast period.

Other factors that are facilitating the adoption of precision farming tools include accessibility of better education and training modules to farmers, data sharing facilities, easy availability of financial resources, as well as increasing consumer demand for organic food.

Services segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during forecast period

The services segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growing deployment and installation of precision feeding systems, field and livestock monitoring systems, and robotic systems in farms have led to a surge in demand for specialized services for smart agriculture.
