農業用噴霧設備的全球市場 - 市場分類，成長性，趨勢，及未來預測
Agriculture Sprayers Market - Segmented by Source of Power and Geography - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2022 - 2027)
The global agriculture sprayers market is projected to register a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period. In 2019, Europe was the largest geographical segment of the market studied, and accounted for a share of around 33.7% of the global market.
GPS and robotic systems are more popular in large agricultural land holdings, garden, and orchard crops. Advanced spraying machinery uses this technology, wherein automated machines can apply pesticides and nutrients in a more targeted and timely manner. This technological development has resulted in making a farming activity more efficient and eco-friendly. However, most of the farm workers are unaware about the dosage limits and pesticide risks, and they require proper training about integrated pest management practices.The global agricultural sprayers market has been affected by the prevailing pandemic across the globe. Since the disruption of supply chain in various countries accompanied with labor shortages, production factories were closed in few of the countries, thereby resulting in production gaps in few of the countries.
Various technologies, such as drones and driverless sprayers, are providing important and attractive opportunities for the growth of the agriculture sprayers market. A drone uses the latest technologies of various tiny sensors, such as accelerometers, GPS modules, powerful processors, and digital radios, to provide the farmers with information. The use of drones helps farmers in scouting for pests and diseases and in mid-field weed identification. Positioning technologies, such as combining GPS (global positioning system) and GIS (geographic information systems) have made yield mapping very easy and help farmers work in the field even under adverse weather conditions, such as rain, fog, and dust. There are companies that have highly indulged in constantly upgrading their technology, in order to meet the growing technology demand. For instance, companies like ASPEE and GUSS, are involved in making investment heavily in R&D to launch more advanced products.
Due to the enforcement of the new European Union Framework Directive on the Sustainable Use of Pesticides, it is expected to enhance the value of field crop and air-assisted sprayers market. The demand for production capacity is increasing directly, with the rise in farm consolidation. Farms are seeking sprayers with higher capacities, as they help save the time spent on refilling the tanks. The Spanish government has made it easier for farmers to acquire loans from banks, in order to purchase agricultural equipment and forestry machinery, which is one of the major reasons for the high adoption rate of sprayers during the forecast period. Owing to technological advances, vendors are introducing self-propelled sprayers and battery-operated sprayers, among others, to ease the work of farmers. For instance, solar-powered sprayers are gradually gaining the attention of farmers, as they can be charged using solar energy, as well as electricity in Europe.
The global agriculture sprayers market is highly fragmented. A lot of developments are taking place in the market. However, of all the strategies adopted, partnerships/collaborations are the most common, followed by mergers and acquisitions.For instance, major companies are acquiring sprayer companies and this is expected to eventually lead to consolidation of the market. For instance, in March 2016, John Deere acquired an 80% interest in Hagie Manufacturing Company, LLC, which is the United States market leader in Impairments high-clearance sprayers.
