To address the escalating demand for food from the limited farmlands and labor, established agriculture machinery developers and technology vendors are introducing innovative solutions in the farming arena. These solutions focus on assisting farmers in filling the supply-demand gap by ensuring high yield, increased profit, and protection of the environment.
Smart farming is the approach of using information technology (IT), digital technologies, precision algorithms, and sensors to ensure optimum utilization of resources to achieve high crop yields and reduced operational costs. Smart farming agriculture technologies comprise specialized equipment, software, and information technology (IT) services. Apart from the growing demand for food, several other microeconomic factors are expected to contribute to the growth of the smart farming market.
Smart farming involves the use of technologies and various methods to obtain and analyze necessary data to increase the efficiency of agricultural operations. The increased development of communication technologies, such as the expansion of internet services, is also influencing the adoption of digital technologies in agricultural practices.
In the current situation, it can be concluded that smart farming technologies are currently at a growing stage of adoption and are yet to be widely adopted globally.
Impact of COVID-19 on Smart Farming
The pandemic negatively impacted the smart farming market in 2020. Due to a global lockdown, manufacturing units were shut down, and the supply chain was shut. This has affected the supply side of the market as many companies were not able to fulfill orders during the period.
Similarly, due to lockdown measures, agriculture production also took a toll. Since food production was crucial during the time, only bare minimum operations were allowed in many parts of the world. This has slowed down the adoption of digital technologies, thus slowing down the market's growth in 2020.
Smart Farming Market by Application
The smart farming market by application is majorly driven by precision agriculture applications, including precision irrigation, yield monitoring and forecasting, variable rate application, crop scouting, and record keeping, among others. This is followed by livestock monitoring and management applications.
As the global population increases exponentially, the total supply of food must be increased; otherwise, food shortage could lead to serious socio-political issues. Precision agriculture methods help significantly increase agriculture efficiency, which would significantly impact overall production yield. Increased yield applying the same number of resources will help tackle food security issues and reduce waste during production.
Smart Farming Market by Solution
The smart farming market by solution is dominated by the hardware segment, followed by the services segment. The hardware segment includes automation and control systems, sensing and navigation systems, and indoor farming equipment, among others.
A wide range of hardware systems is available for applications such as automating and controlling the farm machinery, sensing analytical data, navigating farm equipment with precise sowing and harvesting requirements and controlling and maintaining the desired climatic conditions in indoor farming facilities.
Sensor technology is the most common type of hardware component that is developed and commercialized worldwide. Sensors are also a crucial part of -based farming solutions, which is expected to boost hardware solutions in the smart farming market.
