"The agriculture drones market is at the growth phase"

The agriculture drones market is at its growth phase; it is expected to reach USD 4,209.2 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 30.19%. Rise in the awareness about the benefits of agriculture drones among the farmers and agronomists and the availability of software solutions for field surveys and data analytics are the key factors driving the growth of this market.

"Field mapping application is expected to capture the largest share of the agriculture drones market during the forecast period"

Field mapping application captured the largest share of the agriculture drones market in 2015 and is expected to exhibit the same trend till 2022. This application of agriculture drones helps to look at the condition and health of crops in different soil types and management zones to delineate crop health and yield potential; this propels the growth of the agriculture drones market for field mapping application.

"North America is a major market for agriculture drones"

North America is expected to capture the largest share of the agriculture drones market in 2016. In this region, agriculture drones products are gaining momentum for various agricultural applications such as seeding, spraying, and livestock farming. Along with this, increasing funding from venture firms for UAV manufacturers is driving the growth of the agriculture drones market in North America. The market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. In this region, India has been considered, which plans to boost its manufacturing under the project "Make in India"; this is a key driving factor for the growth of the agriculture drones market in APAC.

The market for agriculture drones is at its growth phase. The market is expected to grow from USD 864.4 Million in 2016 to USD 4,209.2 Million by 2022, at a CAGR of 30.19% between 2016 and 2022. The major factors driving the growth of the agriculture drones market include the increase in funding for UAV manufacturers from the venture firms and the growing awareness about the benefits of agriculture drones among the farmers and agronomists.

One of the major applications of agriculture drones is field mapping; which is leading the market. However, the agriculture drones market for crop spraying application is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period since agriculture drones help in accurate spraying of fertilizers without causing any issues, such as disturbing soil fertility and over spraying, which hamper the yields of the farms.

Fixed wing drones held the largest share of the agriculture drones market in 2015. However, the market for hybrid drones is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2016 and 2022, this growth is anticipated by the fact that hybrid drones can perform tasks over long distances as well as hover over the fields. The software supporting the drones plays a key role in the growth of the adoption of these drones for agriculture applications. The data analytics software helps the farmers and agronomists decide the appropriate amount of fertilizers to be sprayed in the crops in a field; hence, the market for data analytics software held the largest share of the agriculture drones market, based on software, in 2015.

Camera systems are expected to hold the major share of the agriculture drones market in 2016. A camera system is a key component of an agriculture drone since it is the component that decides the application for which the drone is to be used. For instance, the hyperspectral camera best suits to investigate weed intrusion in the farms and LIDAR camera is used to reveal slopes and sun exposure on farm land. However, the market for controller systems is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2016 and 2022.

North America is expected to hold the largest share of the agriculture drones market in 2016. The market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2016 and 2022. Several countries in APAC are developing, wherein; the number of manufacturing companies is increasing. The demographic factors (population), shifting consumer landscape (consumer adoption levels), and economic factors are the key drivers of the growth of the agriculture drones market in APAC.

Agriculture Drones Market

The agriculture drones are required to be operated with care to avoid any emergency conditions or any accidents in the farms. To avoid such instances, the farmers and agronomists need to be trained to operate the drones. Hence, lack of trained pilots and public and security concerns are the factors restraining the growth of the agriculture drones market. In addition, improper use or carelessness in the operation of drones may cause public security and safety concerns.

Trimble Navigation Ltd. (U.S.) has a strong hold in the agriculture drones market; it has rich manufacturing facilities that help the company to capture more market share. The company focuses on strategic acquisitions to grow its business, which also helps the company to provide agronomists and other crop advisors with a stronger set of brand-agnostic tools that they can use to advise farmers on how to better manage their operations. The company provides Trimble UX5 HP high-precision mapping solution in the agriculture drone market.
