Connected Agriculture Market by Solution (Network Management, Smart Water Management), Service, Platform (Device Management, Application Enablement), Application (Farm Planning & Management, Agricultural Finance), and Region - Global Forecast to 2021
Rising global demand for food due to surge in global population is driving the market for connected agriculture
The connected agriculture market is expected to grow from USD 1.34 billion in 2016 to USD 3.06 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 17.9% from 2016 to 2021. According to the United Nations (UN), the global population is 7.4 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach 8.5 billion by 2030. To meet this demand, food production needs to be doubled in near future. The use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers in farming have led to decreased fertility of soil and reduced production per acre, making it very crucial to take corrective measures in order to keep up with the global demand for the food. In order to be successful, a farm production per acre needs to be increased, for which connected agriculture practices are likely to play a pivotal role.
