The Unites States planting machinery market has been estimated at USD X.X million in 2015 and is projected to reach USD 1.2 billion by 2020 with a CAGR of xx.x% during the forecast period from 2015 to 2020. Planting machinery is a part of farm mechanization equipment. Planting machinery is a bigger step in agriculture automation. After the addition of tractors and combine harvesters in farm mechanization, these machines further automate tasks like crop planting.

Planting machinery offers solutions to crop farmers to sow the seeds for crop production. Despite the fact that tractors and combine harvesters are used widely across the globe, planting machinery use is in growing stages and is in succession to tractors to reduce manual intervention in agriculture. Apart from increasing efficiency, mechanization in planting helps in increasing precision agricultural practices.

Short shelf life of conventional machines rises the need for technically advanced machineries to achieve higher productivity and substitute human labor. Technological advancements along with heavy integration of precision farming are going to provide opportunities for future growth. Scarcity of farm labor, high farm income, farm consolidation and widespread usage of tractors are the factors driving the sales of planting machinery.

The market is segmented further by type. Broadcast seeder, planter, plastic mulch layer, potato planter, seed drill and transplanter are some of the most used product types here. US is the major market for planting machinery given to high land mass usage and extensive, large scale farming practices. Automation has become a part of agriculture because of the need to increase in food productivity to feed the growing population. Farmers are now compelled to invest in planting machineries as the traditional agricultural processes involve high physical labor. US will witness high demand for bigger equipment with high capacity to lower the operation interval.

Some of the key players in planting market are AGCO Corp., Buhler Industries, Inc., Great Plains Ag, Deere & Company (John Deere), Kverneland, Kasco Manufacturing etc. Customization during product development and specific focus on local needs can help sustain growth for these companies.
