Report Summary

The global smart agriculture market was valued at USD 6,325.5 million in 2017 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 14.1% during the forecast period.

Smart agriculture is sustainable agriculture that uses technologies such as Big Data, cloud-based services, GPS, and IoT among others. Technologies such as livestock biometrics, agricultural robots, infrastructural health sensors, and Machine-to-Machine are increasingly being accepted by the agriculture sector to save labor costs, and maximize quality, productivity, sustainability, and profitability. Smart agriculture involves data collection and analysis, high-precision crop control, and automation of farming techniques. Smart agriculture uses sensors, connectivity modules, camera, actuators and micro-controllers to enable farmers to control and regulate farming operations through smart devices remotely.

The smart agriculture market is primarily driven by the growing demand for food crops worldwide owing to significant population increase. The increasing automation of farm operations, and integration of advanced technologies to increase food production and improve crop quality boosts the market growth. The growing requirement to monitor livestock, and minimizing the use of pesticides and fertilizers boosts the adoption of smart agriculture. Increasing labor costs coupled with shortage of labor on farms has increased the demand for smart agriculture.

Limited availability of arable land, growth in the global agricultural industry, growing environmental concerns, shifting focus towards organic food, and concerns regarding scarcity of natural resources are other factors supporting the growth of the market. Integration of technologies and subsidies from governments have accelerated the adoption of smart agriculture. However, high initial investment restricts the growth of the smart agriculture market. Growing demand from emerging economies, and technological advancements are factors expected to provide numerous growth opportunities in the coming years.
