Ploughing and cultivating machinery is a piece of farming equipment that is used by modern farmers to plough the field by loosening the soil and cultivating seeds in it. This equipment is attached to tractors to plough the entire field. These machines are meant to increase the efficiency of farming activities along with output. Disc Harrows, rotary tillers, cultivators, multi-board ploughs etc. are some examples of ploughing and cultivating machinery. The market for ploughing and cultivating machinery is divided into various segments, including product type, application and geographical regions.

A major factor driving the growth of the global ploughing and cultivating machinery market during the forecast period is the growing trend of farm mechanisation and precision farming. The rising population and increasing scarcity of resources such as fertile land, labour, water resources etc have led to a shift towards modern machinery to cultivate crops. Favourable government policies and initiatives especially in emerging economies and growing demand for food crops are propelling the demand for mechanised cultivators and ploughs. According to the analysis North America and Asia Pacific region are expected to hold a significant market share in the ploughing and cultivating machinery market during the projection period.

However, high implementation costs and of knowledge are likely to obstruct the growth of the global market for ploughing and cultivating machinery during the projection period. Continuous product innovation, launches and implementation of advanced technologies such as AI, GPS-enabled, and IoT are providing new opportunities for key market players.

During the anticipation period, the rising population and growing demand for food crops will support the growth of the global ploughing and cultivating machinery market.

Competition for farming resources is expected to increase due to population growth, rural-to-urban migration, and climate change. According to the World Bank estimates population is expected to increase to over 10 billion by 2050 with more mouths to feed than ever. When combined with the increased intake of calories and more complex meals that come with wealth development in developing nations, agricultural production is expected to climb by 70 per cent by 2050. This expansion will demand more resources such as arable land, and labour as these resources continue to dip further. This double-edged sword is approaching at an intense speed. Ploughing and cultivating machinery increases efficiency and yield a greater output with less labour.

The lack of skilled and well-trained labourers in the agriculture sector is also propelling the demand for such type of machinery. According to International Labour Organisation data, the percentage of persons working in agriculture has decreased from 44 per cent in 1991 to 26 per cent in 2020.

During the analysis period, the ploughing and cultivating machinery market is expected to grow due to rising demand for agricultural mechanisation and the expansion of government-funded schemes, particularly in developing economies such as India. For instance, in February 2023 the Agriculture Ministry of India announced that the government would grant subsidies to farmers in the Indian state of Punjab for the purchase of various agricultural machines such as cultivators and ploughs.

During the forecast period, North America is anticipated to hold a significant share of the global ploughing and cultivators machinery market.

North American region is anticipated to hold a substantial market share in ploughing and cultivating machinery. This region will experience rapid expansion throughout the projection period due to the growing demand for high-tech modern agricultural machinery. Ploughing and cultivating machinery are in high demand in markets such as the United States and Canada. This region's market is also expanding as a result of the growing population and lack of skilled labourers in the agricultural sector. According to the National Agriculture Statistical Service's Farm Labour Survey self-employment and family farming have decreased by 73 per cent while hired farmworkers decreased by 52 per cent in the United States. Moreover, the lack of resources such as arable land and water is also spurring regional demand for ploughing and cultivating machinery. In addition, the prevalence of key market players such as Deere and Co., CNH Industrial, AGCO Corporation, Kubota and others also spur the growth of ploughing and cultivating machinery in this region.

Market Key Developments

  • In April 2023, Amazon launched its largest plough the semi-mounted Tyrok 400. The Tyrok 400 Onland is designed for tractors with up to 400hp and is available in seven-furrow plus one and eight-furrow plus one variant, for a total of nine-furrow operating, with shear-bolt or hydraulic leg protection.
  • In March 2023, European company NEXAT launched an all-in-one agricultural machine which sows, cultivates, sprays and harvests automatically. The electric generators at NEXAT are now powered by two independently operated 550 hp diesel engines, however, the system is designed to be powered by green hydrogen fuel cells. As each module is integrated, its weight is transferred to the carrier vehicle and optimised so that it can drive itself. This allows the tools to be directed more precisely and with less slide, lowering fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
