Haying and Forage Machinery are used to harvest the crops and forage plants which are then fed to livestock. As there is increasing consumption of livestock products on a regular basis, farmers are growing more forage crops to feed the growing livestock population. This is driving the market for haying and forage machinery. In addition, increasing governments initiative in the form of subsidies to help farmers purchase forage and haying machines is expected to boost the adoption of agricultural haying and forage machinery during the forecast period. How ever, high machinery cost and lack of credit facility to meet the high cost are expected to be the restraining factor for the growth of the market in many developing nations across the globe. By Geography, North America is expected to dominate the market share on account of eary adoption of technology and highly evolved commercial agriculture sector in the region couple with increasing area under forage crops.
