About agricultural robots

Agricultural robots are used in agricultural activities such as livestock management, cattle feeding, cleaning, and wildlife conservation. These robots decrease the dependency of farmers on labor, thus reducing the labor costs. They also help in increasing agricultural productivity.

Technavio's analysts forecast the global agricultural robots market to grow at a CAGR of 11.07% over the period 2014-2019.

Covered in this report

This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global agricultural robots market for the period 2015-2019. The global robot market is classified into two types: industrial and service robots. Service robots can be further classified into two categories: professional services and personal services. Agricultural robots fall under the professional services category. To calculate the market size, the report considers revenue generated from the sales of agricultural robots but it does not consider the cost of software licencing and renewal. It also presents the vendor landscape and a corresponding detailed analysis of the major vendors in the global agricultural robots market. In addition, the report discusses the main drivers that influence the growth of the market. It also outlines the challenges faced by vendors and the market at large, as well as the key trends that will contribute to market growth.

Technavio's report, Global Agricultural Robots Market 2015-2019, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Agricultural Robots Market 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Agricultural Robots Market: DeLaval, Lely and Yamaha
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AB Electrolux, Agrobot, Blue River, BouMatic Robotics, Fullwood, GEA, GeckoSystems, Harvest Automation and SAC
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Robots that can harvest fruits and vegetables are slowly gaining momentum in the market. The continuous availability of labor in orchards makes farm owners reluctant to use robots in the field. In addition, the agricultural robots available on the market currently do not have the ability to differentiate between flowers, fruits, and leaves in an orchard environment. This has triggered the demand for robots that use advanced sensors to differentiate fruits from other parts and work in tandem with the labor in the orchards. For example, Spain-based company Agrobot is working in collaboration with farmers to develop advanced strawberry-harvesting robots. The collection of fruits by robots requires the ability to accurately determine whether to pull, push, pluck, or twist the parts, which in turn demands extensive research and field testing. Researchers are striving to develop robots specifically for plucking apples. We expect researchers to design commercially viable, low-cost, advanced robots for these purposes, thus boosting market growth.”
According to the report, countries worldwide are striving to reduce their dependence on importing agricultural food products. Following this, the focus on improving agricultural activities to enhance efficiency and accelerate productivity has increased. Governments worldwide are introducing modern practices such as the adoption of robotics. Many countries have less farmland to meet their growing population needs. This has compelled them to increase their focus on developing their agriculture sector. For example, China has bought land in Africa, Latin America, and the Ukraine in order to grow corn, soybeans, and sunflowers. To enable farming in these lands, many agricultural robots were used for tasks such as pruning, weeding, and spraying.
Further, the report states that the costs of robots are relatively high, making their adoption difficult for small individual users and companies in the agricultural sector.
