The crop harvesting robots market is projected to show steady growth during the forecast period.

For effective crop harvesting, agricultural harvesting robots employ cutting-edge sensors, cameras, processors, and other high-tech equipment. The automated harvesting robots locate and locate fruits or vegetables on trees using computer vision, and then a robotic arm securely grasps the fruit and plucks it off the tree without harming the fruit or the tree. The deployment of these robots increases production and efficiency in the agricultural industry.

The market for agricultural harvesting robots is expanding rapidly and is anticipated to expand much more during the coming few years. To raise the productivity of agricultural harvesting, there has been a growth in demand for farm automation during the past ten years. A specifically created autonomous crop harvesting device known as a "crop harvesting robot" is utilised on both small and large farms. There are essentially two main categories of harvesting robots. The first is used to harvest crops such as fruit and vegetables selectively, and the second is for vast field grain harvests. Crop harvesting robots come in a variety of sizes, ranging from tiny to the size of huge tractors.

The major companies in the market for agricultural harvesting robots used acquisition as their primary developmental strategy to increase their market share and advance the technology of their products. For instance, the Silicon Valley-based business "Bear Flag Robots" was set to be purchased by John Deere Agriculture Equipment for $250 million in August 2021. The developer of autonomous driving technology that can be implemented into current machines is Bear Flag Robotics. This purchase will enable John Deere to improve the capabilities of its agricultural robots, particularly crop harvesting robots.

The growing focus on farm mechanization drives the market for crop harvesting robots.

The market for crop harvesting robots is primarily driven by farmers' growing emphasis on agricultural mechanisation. The activities the robots are intended to carry out include replanting young seedlings, spraying, crop cutting, and harvesting. Hence, it is anticipated that the growing use of contemporary mechanised techniques to alter the agricultural landscape in developed and developing countries would also fuel the expansion of the crop harvesting robots market. Also, the market for agricultural harvesting robots is anticipated to rise as solar-powered crop harvesting robots gain in popularity.

The rising demand for crop harvesting robots is encouraged by rising population and labour shortages.

Due to the growing global population and the need to boost production from existing lands, the agriculture sector is under pressure. Agribusiness is currently being influenced by urbanisation and shifting demographics, among other things. The need for physical work has dramatically decreased due to an ageing farmer population, which has caused a global labour shortage. Farmers today have to work harder and longer in the fields as a result. Robotic automation has the potential to attract competent workers to non-repetitive tasks while also replacing obsolete jobs. In dairy farms, robots may automate tasks like cleaning and feeding, freeing farmers to concentrate more on making decisions. To assist them in getting started, large farming companies are investing in startups offering agricultural automation solutions.

North America is projected to be the prominent market shareholder in the crop harvesting robots market and is anticipated to continue throughout the forecast period.

Due to the widespread implementation of automation technology in different industries, including agriculture, the North American area is anticipated to be the largest market for crop harvesting robots. By increasing production capacity and lowering labour expenses connected with agricultural harvesting, automation technologies enable farmers to generate more income from higher-quality crops. South America is anticipated to have the quickest rate of growth in the market for crop harvesting robots due to the rising need for automation in a variety of sectors, including agriculture. The development of agriculture harvesting robots is now receiving more attention from important parties. Due to the high consumer adaptation to new technology, favourable regulations that support the commercial use of drones, and rising farm mechanisation in the region's agriculture sector, Asia-Pacific is anticipated to have a dominant position in the agricultural robot market.

Market Key Developments

  • In June 2022, a business in British agriculture robotics called Small Robot Company (SRC) revealed ambitions to introduce its agricultural robots to about 50 farms.
  • In January 2022, a tractor that is fully autonomous and prepared for mass manufacturing was shown off by John Deere. A GPS navigation system, a TruSet-enabled chisel plough, a Deere 8R tractor, and other cutting-edge technology are all included in this equipment.
  • In December 2021, Agri-robot producer Inaho B.V. joined forces with IT service provider Green PEAK-IT. The Green PEAK-IT platform and Inhao's tomato harvesting robot now have a data link. The robotics and data platform will be combined by both businesses in close collaboration for future company development.
