Increasing Automation in Farming Techniques Driving Agriculture Drone Market

23-Nov-2016 | Zion Market Research

Agriculture drone can be used in soil and field analysis, planting, crop spraying, crop monitoring, irrigation and others. Data generated by drones can help farmers to gain a more accurate & detailed view that how their crops are responding to their management strategies, which may lead to the most effective use of limited resources. Different types of drones are used to elevate agricultural efficiency.

Increasing automation in the agriculture process due to labor crisis, lack of aging farmers, and skilled farmers are expected to have the positive impact on agriculture drone market growth. Further, increasing applications of drone in agriculture sectors have enforced the industries to invest significantly in agriculture drone market. Also, funding from venture firms for drones is fueling the market growth. However, lack of trained pilots and stringent regulations may restrain the growth of agriculture drones market over the forecast period.

Moreover, technological development in farming equipment for enhancing the quality of the farming methods has led increased implementation of agriculture drones in the market. For instance, innovations in the GPS mapping field and solar power drone in agriculture are expected to further spur the industry growth over the forecast period

Agriculture drone market is segmented on the basis of type, component, application and region. By type is segmented into hardware (fixed wing, rotary blade, and hybrid) and software (data management, imaging software, data analysis and others).Imaging software is used for processing the image captured by the drone cameras mounted as payload. Hence imaging software plays a key role to fuel the growth of agriculture drone market. In hardware type, the hybrid drone is expected to drive the agriculture drone market as it can fly with high speed and remain steady.  Controller system, propulsion systems, camera systems, navigation system and batteries others are the component segments. Applications are segmented into field mapping, variable rate application (VRA), crop spraying, livestock, crop scouting, agriculture photography and others. Crop spraying application is expected record rapid growth in the forecast period.

North America agriculture drones market is expected to remain major revenue generating region with the largest share of the agriculture sector due to the adoption of the drones, in various applications such as seeding, spraying, and livestock farming has led to the high market share in the region. India is boosting its agriculture sector under the new project "Make in India". This is a major driving factor for the growth of the agriculture drones market in Asia Pacific.
