The size of the global tractor market used for agriculture is expected to increase by 290 thousand units between 2017-2022, accelerating at a CAGR of nearly 3% during the forecast period. This growth in market size will be driven by the inclination of farmers towards high powered tractors to increase productivity and the introduction of driverless tractors and other technological innovations. A majority of this market growth during the forecast period will come from the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, which accounted for 67% of the regional agricultural tractor market share in 2017. One of the leading countries in the tractor market in APAC is Japan; For instance, Yanmar, a Japanese diesel engine manufacturer has collaborated with Hokkaido University to develop an unmanned robotic tractor with features such as in-built sensors and engine control unit.
Compact agricultural tractors are gaining popularity among small-scale farmers as they are more affordable than regular tractors. Moreover, their lightweight reduces the damage caused to commercial crops such as soya, cotton, and groundnut that need special care. They are also capable of performing various tasks in agricultural fields through small farm implements, front-end loaders, and back-hoes. The growing popularity of compact tractors has induced many prominent manufacturers to launch similar products with advanced features. There is a strong demand for compact tractors in countries such as China and India because of developments in the agricultural sector and the increasing mechanization of agricultural activities. Technavio forecasts the agricultural compact tractor market to register a CAGR of almost 4% during 2018-2022.
