Smart agriculture helps in automated farming, collection of data from the field and then investigates it so that the farmer can make systematic and specific decision in order to grow high quality crop. The field data are collected with the help of sensors, cameras, micro controllers, and actuators.
Global Smart Agriculture Market: Critique
The breakneckgrowth of food demand due to the growing population worldwide is driving the demand for smart agriculture. The smart agriculture employes advanced technologies such as Big Data, GPS, IoT and connected devices.
Global Smart Agriculture Market: Drivers and Restraints
The major drivers of the global smart agriculture market are growing in abundant insistence for usage of latest technologies in agriculture, rising global food demand, outpouring need for livestock monitoring, and increase in greenhouse farming. Another major concern is Population, the demand for food is also increasing and on the other hand agriculture man power is diminishing.
Due to this, the individual farmers and the corporate farming houses are adopting the smart agriculture tools and equipment in order to minimize the crisis. This will help the farmers and corporate houses to grow high quality crops in large quantity to meet the required food demand.
The sensors and cameras used in smart agriculture provides information to the operator for water level, fertilizers as well as light required for growing the best quality food.
The smart agriculture market has factors hindering the market growth such as high cost of the smart devices and less consciousness about the latest mechanization among the farmers. The high cost involved in manufacturing of smart devices, is in turn increasing the price of the final product which is limiting the farmers in soliciting the smart devices.
Global Smart Agriculture Market: Key Segments
Global Smart Agriculture is segmented on the basis of solutions, applications and geography.
On the basis of solutions, the market of smart agriculture is further segmented as network management, agriculture asset management, supervisory control and data acquisition, logistic and supply chain management, smart water management and others. Network management has been heavily arranged as it involves the operations related to remote monitoring systems and it also helps in examining the data generated from the field.
Smart water management aims to reduce human efforts, minimize weather hazards, and increase the off-season production by saving water and energy by the use of smart water products and chemical. The others segment includes maneuverabilitysolution, connectivity solutions and quality affirmation solutions.
Based on application, smart agriculture market is segmented as precision agriculture, livestock monitoring, fish farming, smart greenhouse and other. The concept of precision agriculture is based on crop and soil observing, image capturing through UAVs or drones and countering it to the operator.
With the help of precision agriculture the farmers can maintain their fields and make necessary decisions in order to enhance high quality and large quantity crops with the help of authentic data collected from the field. The others segment includes indoor farming, horticulture and dairy management among others.
In the application segment, livestock monitoring is the fastest growing segment, growing at an influential rate.
