The Africa planting machinery market has been estimated at USD XX million in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 436.8 million by 2021 with a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period from 2016 to 2021. The growing need to automate the agricultural sector is driving the demand for planting machinery. Planting machinery is a part of farm mechanization equipment. After the addition of tractors and combine harvesters to farm automation, planting machinery further automates subsequent tasks.
Planting machinery offers solutions to crop farmers to sow seeds. Its use is in its nascent stages in developing countries and is expected to follow tractors in reducing manual intervention in agriculture. Apart from increasing efficiency and reducing labor cost, mechanization in planting helps in increasing precision agricultural practices. The advent of technology in the planting and machinery market has ensured that sowing grains is no longer a difficult task. Various new tools have made the task of planting and sowing seeds more sophisticated. Different machines have flooded the market, which has led to a thrilling boost in the agro market. Simpler designs and complicated tasks are the trademarks of these machines. Planting cereals, grains, pulses, and other vegetables was never so easy until the agro revolution.
The short shelf-life of conventional machines has increased the need for technically advanced machinery to achieve higher productivity and substitute human labor. Technological advancement, along with the heavy integration of precision farming, is going to provide opportunities for future growth. Rising demand in developing countries like South Africa drives the planting machinery market. Farm consolidation and widespread usage of tractors are the factors driving planting machinery sales.
The Africa planting machinery market is segmented by type of machinery and geography.
On the basis of the type of machinery, the market is segmented into
The market is segmented by geography into South Africa and Others (Morocco, Egypt, Libya, etc.).
South Africa is the major market for planting machinery due to its high land mass usage and large-scale farming practices. Automation has become a part of agriculture because of the need to increase food productivity and agricultural product export competence. Farmers are now compelled to invest in planting machinery as the traditional agricultural processes involve high physical labor and are inefficient.
