The African planting machinery market has been estimated at USD X.X million in 2015 and is projected to reach USD 417.3 million 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 nascent 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 advancement along with 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. Farm consolidation and widespread usage of tractors are the factors driving the sales of planting machinery.

The market is segmented further by type and geography. Broadcast seeder, planter, plastic mulch layer, potato planter, seed drill and transplanter are some of the most used product types here. The geography is segmented into South Africa and others.

South Africa is the major market for planting machinery given to high land mass usage and 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 and increase agricultural product export competence. Farmers are now compelled to invest in planting machineries as the traditional agricultural processes involve high physical labor and inefficient.

Some of the key players in planting market are- AGCO Corp. (US), Buhler Industries, Inc. (Canada) , Great Plains Ag (US) , Deere & Company (John Deere) (US), Kuhn Group (France) , Kverneland Group (Norway) , Kasco Manufacturing (US), Kubota Corporation (Japan), CNH Industrial N.V. (UK). Market specific products and low cost automation are preferred to increase planting machinery market.
