The global agricultural sprayers market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.77% to reach a valuation of US$8,544.607 million by 2025, from US$5,767.802 million in 2019. Agriculture sprayer is a type of a device, which is used, for spraying chemicals and substances such as herbicides, pesticides, insecticides and fungicides to keep the food crops safe and the quality of the yield up to the mark. There are several types of sprayers that are used to deliver these chemicals all over the field and have different pressure ranges, fluid rates, coverage potential and capacity among others. Some of the sprayer types are self-propelled, aerial, tractor mounted, trailed and handheld.
There is an increase in the consumption of food and food crops globally. This has spurred an increase in the production of food crops to meet this demand, this coupled with the rising awareness among the farmers in order to increase their output or yield, has resulted in an increased demand for these sprayers, which will boost the market growth over the forecast period. Moreover, the policies and regulations by the government in place and the rising concerns of the farmers regarding the deteriorating food crop quality due to contamination or insects and fungal attacks has encouraged them to adopt these chemicals and sprayers in order to protect the crop from any bacterial attack and spoilage. This will lead to an increase in the demand of these chemicals, thus bolstering the growth of the market further. However, the usage of pesticides and some of the crop control chemicals are hazardous to the environment and cause degradation of soil, erosion of soil, rob the soil of its fresh supply of nutrients. The excess usage of these chemicals damage crops as well, this factor will buckle the demand for the agricultural sprayers, thus acting as a restraint in the growth of the market.
Furthermore, the market players are involved in the market through investments and advancements to facilitate the growth of the agricultural sprayers market. For instance, In March 2018, Apache Sprayers announced the launch of its new sprayer model AS630.
