The planting equipment market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.92% to reach US$16.290 billion by 2027, from US$10.890 billion in 2020.

The increasing number of agricultural practices in order to meet the rising demand for food crops and other crops by the individuals in the population is augmenting the growth of the market.

There has been an increase in agricultural practices over the years in order to meet the burgeoning demand for food crops and other crops from consumers and end-user industries, which has resulted in farmers increasing their production by making use of specialized machinery such as ploughers, seeding equipment, and planting equipment, among others. In addition, as the conventional machinery and conventional planters that are used have a short lifespan, they do not provide the correct amount of efficiency, and this has led the framers to adopt mechanized machinery, which is able to provide a better rate of work and also savings in time. Moreover, as the global population is increasing and demanding healthier food to lead a fit life, the production of crops is increasing. For example, according to the statistics provided by the USDA and PS&D online, soybean production in Brazil increased from 3.38 tons per hectare in 2016/2017 to 3.47 tonnes per hectare in 2017/2018. After that, it subsequently fell to 3.26 tons per hectare in 2018/2019, and now it is estimated to increase to 3.41 in 2019/2020. In conjunction, In India, the production of rice increased from 3.74 tonnes per hectare in the 2016/2017 period and reached 3.99 tonnes per hectare in 2018/2019 and is now estimated to reach 4.02 tonnes per hectare according to the USDA estimates. Therefore, these factors are encouraging farmers to buy more machinery, such as planting equipment, and this will lead to the market's growth over the forecast period.

The increasing participation of governments in order to ramp up agricultural production in order to accelerate the development of the agricultural sector.

The governments in different countries are taking initiatives in order to ramp up the production of crops by taking initiatives and putting forward action plans. For instance, the Government of India's action plan National Mission for Sustainable Agriculture (NMSA)" by the Department of Agriculture, Cooperation and Farmers Welfare is aimed at making agricultural practices more productive and sustainable, which will be done by promoting location-specific farming systems and by adopting comprehensive soil health management practices, which are necessary to ensure the crop quality, among some other objectives. Thus, these steps are leading to an increase in the adoption of planting equipment and boosting the market's growth.

Product Launches by Major Market Players

The better, advanced, and diverse varieties of planting equipment with enhanced features are able to effectively aid in proper and efficient crop production. These products are being launched by existing and new players in different markets and are estimated to lead to increased adoption and propel market growth further over the forecast period.

Some of examples of product launches are as follows:

  • In June 2022, Apex.AI, a software for autonomous and mobile applications developers, teamed up with a global agricultural machinery and technology manufacturer and distributor, AGCO. Through this partnership, leveraging the former's easy-to-use software development kit, the latter upgraded its autonomous farming robot. Through this development, the Fendt, an autonomous sowing robot, can plant seeds on farms all day long with centimetre precision owing to Apex.OS's software.
  • In September 2020, Mahindra and Mahindra added a new potato planting machinery to its farming equipment portfolio. The new Planting Master Potato+ was designed and produced in collaboration with Europe-based Dewulf to develop a product suitable for the Indian farming environment with optimized quality and high harvest.
  • In January 2020, Kinze, which is among the leading companies that are involved in the provision of agricultural equipment and is based in the U.S., announced the launch of their new series of planters known as the "05 Series Planters", which include the 4705, 24 rows 30" and the Narrow Transport Mach Till.
  • In December 2019, The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Soybean Value Chain Research announced that they had supported the launch of a new planting product that is equipped with mechanized technology and is their first mechanized planting equipment by the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) breeding program about last month in Lusaka, Zambia. The product launch was supported by a donation from Monsanto to the University of Illinois, and SIL collaborated with ALMACO, an equipment manufacturer, which inspected the product and then shipped it to Zambia, along with two additional planters belonging to the University of Illinois.

The Asia Pacific region is expected to hold a considerable share over the forecast period.

The Asia Pacific region is expected to hold a considerable market share over the forecast period owing to the increasing number of agricultural activities in countries such as India and initiatives such as the "National Mission for Sustainable Agriculture (NMSA)" by the Department of Agriculture, Cooperation and Farmers Welfare, in order to accelerate the development of the agricultural sector. In addition, in Japan, ISEKI CO., Ltd. is taking steps and initiatives by offering enhanced and advanced products such as the "Variable Fertilizing Rice Trans-planter" and taking part in various programs such as the" Smart Agricultural Inter-Business Cooperation Demonetization Project" by Niigata city. It also includes collaboration with international players such as ISEKI Europe, TAFE India, AGCO North America, RUTAN Russia, and Mitsubishi Corporation Thailand and neighbouring countries.

COVID-19 Impact on Planting Equipment Market

COVID-19 slowed the global planting equipment market in 2020. The mandated lockdown and social distancing measures amid the pandemic had led to the closure of several facilities in the industry, slowing down the market growth. Furthermore, the global recession and lesser demand due to the crisis had also caused several manufacturers to slow down their production, reducing the market size.
