The total land under agriculture in South Korea is less than one-fourth of the country’s total area. Agriculture accounts for a very small share of GDP as the country is more inclined towards the industrial sector. The Government has been pushing for the development of the agriculture sector lately by emphasizing on mechanization, specialization, and commercialization. The agricultural tractor industry in South Korea witnessed rapid development in the past decades. The agriculture tractor market in South Korea was worth USD 862.5 million in 2018.

The rapid industrialization in the country attracted many of the village laborers to the cities causing a deficiency in farm labor. To accelerate the growth of industrialization and to maintain the required manpower in agriculture, the Korean Government actively promoted the agricultural mechanization program in the country. The Government also provides subsidies for agricultural machinery, especially for rice cultivation. Along with the subsidized cost for agricultural machinery, the Korean Government also offers agricultural loans with a little annual interest rate to reduce the economical burden on farmers and also push for mechanization. The Government also provides subsidies for lease and rental of agriculture machinery.

A permanent second-hand machinery exchange market was established in 2003 and supported with low interest loans offered to purchase second-hand machines. Thus a strong push from the Government has established a steady platform for agriculture tractor market and is further pushing the growth of the market.

The Korean agricultural mechanization has been a supply-oriented policy as a solution to shortage of labour. However the current policies are focused on enhancing the quality of life of farmers and acquiring an agricultural competitive edge. The current policies involve reduction of annual labor input-hours, maximization of agriculture productivity, strengthening of agriculture competitiveness and farmers welfare. These policies are reliant on farm mechanization and thereby creating a wide platform for expansion of agriculture tractors market.

Due to the promotion from the Government, the awareness among the farmers about the benefits of mechanized agricultural has been growing. The agriculture market in South Korea is in matured state of development. Although the sales of agriculture machineries has been steadily growing but there is an increasing demand for ergonomically suited mechanization for the farmers. Similarly the demand for small farm tractors with higher capacity has also been growing. With an aim to increase farm productivity and enhance production, the demand for driverless tractors and tractors meant for hill agriculture has also been growing progressively. These are the opportunity segments in South Korea agriculture tractors market.

The market has been segmented based on the:
  • End applications: Utility, Row crop, Garden type, Orchard type, Rotary tillers, and Implement carriers.
  • Horse Power: Below 40 HP, 40 HP-100 HP and Above 100 HP
  • Wheel Type: Two Wheel and Four Wheel
Utility tractors are a general-purpose machine designed for plowing and driving other equipment. Utility tractors account for major market share. Garden tractors are forecasted to be the fastest growing segment to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2019 to 2024.

Competitive landscape
Kukje Machinery Co., New Holland Ag, Daedong Industrial Company, Ltd., TYM are the major players in the South Korea agriculture tractors market.
