Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Agricultural Robots Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global agricultural robots market: Dajiang Innovation Technology (DJI), DeLaval, Harvest Automation, Lely, Parrot, and PrecisionHawk.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: 3D Robotics, AeroVironment, AGCO, AgEagle, Agribotix, AGROBOT, Blue River Technology, Bosch, BouMatic Robotics, Deere & Company, GEA Farm Technologies, Kairos Autonomi, Naïo Technologies, PONSSE, S.A. Christensen, Schauer Agrotronic, Sentera, Trimble, Universal Robots, XAIRCRAFT, and YAMAHA Motor.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is innovations in gripper technology. Scientists from universities and private companies are increasing their focus on robotic technology that can enhance the capabilities of robot parts such as manipulators, sensors for detection of ripeness of fruits, and grippers for grasping fruits and vegetables.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is skill shortage in dairy industry. To increase profits in the dairy industry, daily milk production must be maximized. It has been observed that milking of herds carried out by automated robotic systems has 5%-10% higher productivity over the traditional milking process. In contrast to the traditional milking process involving human labor attending to one animal at a time, robotic systems, similar to multiple-stall and rotary units, can handle several animals, thereby enhancing the productivity and yield.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is technical issues. The stringent technical requirements have hampered the progress in this market. The vision system needs to detect fruits inside a complex canopy while the robotic arms need to rapidly and gently pick the fruit. There are certain versions of farming robots that require changes in farm layouts along with training for strawberry-pickers.
