Africa is one of the most important continents with respect to arable land, and its relation to food security. It remains one of the last continents where swathes of arable land are available (45% of Africa’s land is arable), a fact providing relief for the entire world. Agriculture contributes to about half the GDP in African countries.

In line with the conditions in most developing and pre-developing areas, African market for agricultural mechanization is dismal. In sub-Saharan Africa, less than 20% of agricultural activities are conducted using machines, while over 60% is done by humans - mostly women, children and the elderly, and another 25% by animals.

This African agricultural market represents a large segment of the developing countries’ agricultural area, consisting of a large proportion of small holding farmers. This market is thus characterized by a number of regional body interventions (AfDB, UN bodies, and others), close tracking, social enterprises and monetary aid. In comparison with about 700-1850 tractors used per 1000 farmers in North America or Europe, the countries in Asia-Pacific (China, India, others), and Africa, exhibit poor rates of 3-6 tractors per 1000 farmers. However, initiatives to remedy this disparity are underway, by governmental, regional bodies and others. Consequently, there is a thriving market for equipment rental market in some countries, and a growing equipment purchase market.

Currently worth $X billion, the Africa agri-equipment and machinery market is expected to grow at CAGR X% over 2015-2020. The growth is driven in large part by an increase in affluence, and thereby, consolidation in agricultural areas in Africa, demand for higher productivity to match the demand for more food in line with a growing population. In addition, technology advancements, to match not only large scale productions as in the west, but to support and fit the needs of small holder farmers is also expected to drive the growth of this market. Most important constraints faced by this market in Africa include lack of awareness about new technologies, lack of skilled manpower, fluctuating prices of farm commodities, lack of governmental support, and lack of purchasing power due to a low average level of affluence.

Starting with common tools of farming like plough and sickle, the agricultural machinery industry has products to offer in every stage of a crop cycle. Here market segmentation is done on the basis of product and phase type, for example, tractors, plowing and cultivating machinery, planting and fertilizing, harvesting machinery etc. The combine machine of scarifying, fertilizing and seeding is popular in Africa; the plough, mineral fertilizer applicator, combine harvester and grain thresher are also in great demand, although only by relatively few affluent farmers.

The equipment used in these countries tend to be in the form of smaller horsepower, low-technology tractors with relatively low unit prices. Africa with their small farm size is at primary stage of adoption.

The globally renowned players like Deere and Company, AGCO Corp., CNH Industrial N.V, Iseki & Co. Ltd., Kuhn Group, Kverneland Group and Escorts Group operating in market place of Africa. Levy Sinyimba is the largest local company accounting majority of market share. The companies here strive to strengthen their base on the basis of product features, pricing, quality, scale of operation and technology innovation John Deere has 30 dealers located all over the Africa except South Africa.
