The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.32%. Tractors are extensively used for drawing, towing or pulling objects in the agricultural field that are extremely hard to move. The tractors on farms are generally used for pushing agricultural implements or trailers used for plowing or harrowing fields. Farm tractors are the most frequently used tractors. The classic farm tractor is an open vehicle with two large driving wheels on an axle below with the engine in front of the driver’s seat and two steering wheels below the engine compartment. This basic design has remained unchanged for a number of years.
The demand for agricultural production is growing because of the rising population. The farm tractor business sector was reasonably affected by the recession in 2008 - 2009; however, it recuperated by 2010. With the growth in demand for food produce, the farm tractor market showed significant development in the next three years and the trend is expected to stay the same throughout the following three years. The worldwide economy has kept on seeing an increase in the motorization of farming practices. The shortage of labor, accessibility to credit, and expanded government subsidies towards mechanization are the significant driving factors for the tractors market. However, developments in designing tractors have increased the cost of production, thus posing a constraint to the market. Another restraint for the growth in the agricultural tractors market is the demand-supply disparity, there being an increased supply of tractors in the market. North America is one of the major markets in the agricultural tractor sector, with more than 260,000 new tractor sales in the region (by the end of 2014).
Farm tractors have had a major impact on the farming activities in the US. In the US, only around 2% of the population is engaged in agricultural activities and there is a possibility that this figure might decrease further. However, food needs are increasing so there is a wide scope for technology to play a critical role and ensure that the efficiency and productivity of farming are improved. The critical step taken by tractor manufacturers is to focus more on cost-effective precision farming. This uses intelligent production technologies to improve yield and at the same time focuses on minimizing costs. Many machinery manufacturers in the US are exporters to many countries. As a result, the US is one of the leading exporters of farm manufacturing equipment. The growing demand for agricultural machinery in India and China is expected to give a huge boost to this market in Asia-Pacific region.
