Global Agricultural Robot Market Dynamics
- Increasing awareness among farmers regarding smart agriculture
Growing awareness among farmers regarding smart agriculture will likely propel market growth. Smart agriculture refers to using technologies such as robots, sensors, and location systems on a farm. Progressively increasing awareness among farmers regarding smart agriculture is increasing the adoption of agricultural robots. Utilizing agricultural robots in smart agriculture improves food production and enhances the quality of food. As a result of all these factors, boost the market growth during the forecast period.
- Growing demand for milking robots widens the market scope
Increasing demand for milking robots in the agriculture sector is anticipated to drive the growth of the agricultural robot market. Milking robots are also called voluntary and automatic milking systems devoted to extracting milk from animals. This product would help in reducing workforce costs and increasing the milk yield. The milking procedure with the help of these machines normally takes about 7 minutes, and thus, farmers can save more time to focus on overall herd health. This is enhancing the market growth.
- Increasing integration of AI technology in agricultural robots
The growing integration of artificial intelligence (AI) technology in agricultural robots will likely create lucrative market growth opportunities. For instance, Future Acres introduced its first robot, Carry, in 2021 with plans to tackle grape picking. Carry relies on artificial intelligence (AI) technology to transport hand-picked crops. Also, this will help to reduce the challenges of labor shortages. Thus, increasing the integration of AI technology in agricultural robots boosts the market growth.
- Growing government initiatives for automated technologies
Governments all over the globe are undertaking initiatives and offering subsidies to increase awareness about automated technologies among farmers. For instance, the European Union launched projects, such as Robs4Crops, for smart implements of fully autonomous farming systems in 2021. Robs4Crops is assisting farmers in filling the labor shortage, positively changing the farming landscape. This is likely to create ample opportunities for the market and improve the scope of the agricultural robots market.
- High cost associated with agricultural robot
The high expense of automation for small farms (10–1,000 acres) will act as a major restraint factor that may hamper the growth of the agricultural robot market during the forecast period. Furthermore, the high initial investment in purchasing agricultural robots will also hamper the market growth during the forecast period.
- The risk associated with the usage of AI-based agricultural robot
Increasing risks by using AI-based agricultural robots, such as cyberattacks, exploitation of workers, environmental harm, and widening the gap between subsistence and commercial farmers, may hamper the market growth during the forecast period of 2023 to 2030.
