Market Synopsis


Global Agriculture Robots Market is estimated to reach USD 27.32 Billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 29.44% during the forecast period of 2020–2026.


Agriculture robots are used for tasks such as harvesting, seeding, and plant inspection. These robots feature mechanical parts, robot arms, vision cameras, sensing technology, and artificial intelligence to improve crop production by minimizing the use of arable land. Several of these robots are equipped with 3D cameras that scan the modules placed in front of them and collect information to perform specific operations further. These robots can largely be categorized as semi-autonomous and fully autonomous robots. Fully autonomous robots use artificial intelligence and sensors to calculate how-to pick-up plants without disturbing nearby crops. Advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics technologies reduce costs, save resources, and boost profits, which propels the adoption of robots for indoor farming.


Global Agriculture Robot Market has been segmented based on Robot Type, Farm Type, Farm Produce, Application, and Region.


By Robot Type, the market has been segmented into UAV, milking robots, driverless tractors, automated harvesting systems, and others. The UAV segment is projected to dominate the market during the review period owing to its wide applications, small size, and affordability. The milking robots segment is expected to garner the second largest market share during the forecast period. Americas holds the largest share in the global milking robots market.


By Farm Type, the market has been segmented into indoor & outdoor. The outdoor segment is expected to gain the largest market share, with UAV being the most popular robot type. The most common outdoor farming robots are driverless tractors, fruit harvesters, and weeding robots.


By Farm Produce, the market has been segmented into fruits & vegetables, field crops, dairy & livestock, and others. The field crops segment is expected to account for the largest market share. This farm produce segment largely deploys auto-steering systems and autonomous robots.


By Application, the market has been segmented into field farming, harvest management, dairy & livestock management, irrigation management, inventory management, and others. The field farming segment is projected to hold the largest market share. However, the harvest management segment is expected to register a significant CAGR during the forecast period.


Key Players profiled in the Global Agriculture Robots Market research report are Deere & Company (US), Trimble (US), AGCO Corporation (US), DeLaval (Sweden), DJI (China), Boumatic Robotics (Netherlands), Lely (Netherlands), AgJunction Inc. (US), Topcon Positioning Systems, Inc. (US), AgEagle Aerial Systems, Inc. (US), and Yanmar Co. (Japan). In April 2020, Yanmar Europe announced its EUR 4 million projectSmart Machine for Agricultural Solutions High-tech (SMASH)—for the development of a modular robotic platform that can examine crops and soils, analyze gathered information, and provide clear, actionable information to farmers. The company has collaborated with ten technology partners for this project.
