By Type Analysis

  • Broadcast spreader segment accounted for the largest market share in 2023

The broadcast spreader segment accounted for the largest market share This dominance is attributable to continuous development in terms of design and ability of spreaders and significant use of these spreaders across various applications including commercial turn applications, public gardens, farms, and home lawns.

The drop spreader segment is anticipated to emerge at fastest growth rate. This growth is due to its ability to spread fertilizer to every part of the lawn with greater efficiency and effectiveness. Moreover, numerous beneficial characteristics including reduced environmental impact, versatility, ease of use, cost-effectiveness, and higher compatibility with other fertilizers, influencing the adoption of drop spreaders.

By Component Analysis

  • Fertilizer distributor segment expected to hold significant market share

The fertilizer distributor segment expected to hold significant market share. Segment’s market is driven by drastic increase in the adoption rate of fertilizer distributors among larger farms with extensive area, because fertilizer distributor helps them to cover ground more efficiently along with the growing focus of farmers from all over the world towards improving or enhancing crop yields and overall productivity.

In addition, rising proliferation among leading market companies regarding the development and introduction to new fertilizer distributor with advanced technologies and features, allowing for fertilizer distribution in a more effective way, is also likely to create significant growth opportunities.

  • For instance, in February 2023, Vantage AG, announced about the launch of its first product from their proprietary technology platform. The newly developed technology is highly effective nano-particle formulation that is specially designed to cover and penetrate plant tissue.

By Application Analysis

  • Farms segment is expected to witness highest growth

The farms segment is projected to grow at highest growth rate.  This growth is attributed to growing use of such equipment in farming operations and widespread adoption of modern agricultural machinery that lead to time-saving and highly-efficient spreading of fertilizers into large farms. Apart from this, with the continuous increase in global population, there is a drastically growing demand for high-quality food products to meet surging population needs, thereby, adoption of fertilizer spreaders to improve the productivity and crop yield by farmers is boosting the segment fertilizer spreader market growth.

  • For instance, according to a report published by United Nations, the world’s total population was estimated around 8 billion in November 2022, and is projected to rise to 2 Bn persons in coming 30 years and could reach 10.4 Bn by 2080.

Regional Insights

  • Asia Pacific region dominated the global market in 2023

The Asia Pacific region dominated the global market with noteworthy share. Region’s growth is accelerated by growing demand for fertilizers in the region to improve crop yield and boost productivity to meet constantly growing demand for food products. Beside this, robust presence of some of the leading countries engaged in agricultural activities has also led to greater adoption of modern farming techniques and equipment like fertilizer spreader.

  • For instance, according to our findings, China’s arable land accounts for almost 10% of world’s total arable land and supports more than 20% of world’s population.

North America will grow with substantial pace. Region’s growth is attributed to availability of various leading farming equipment manufacturing companies. Additionally, the lack of labor and population working in agricultural sector that creates huge demand and adoption for technology-driven solutions to perform various farming operations, is further escalating the region’s growth. For instance, according to our findings, less than 2 percent of total population in the United States are directly employed in the agricultural industry and the median age of a farmer in the country reached to 55.9 years old.
