Years from now, when the world’s gross population swiftly surpasses 10 billion, feeding these people will become the most critical challenge for all nations. Averting even a slight chance for such impending global starvation, governments from around the world have begun compelling farmers & agro-industrialists towards boosting their farm yield. And, a steadfast adoption of multiple smart agriculture solutions is aptly serving this purpose. The demand for smart agriculture solutions is also gaining traction among farming sectors riddled with soil & water degradation. A worldwide adoption of smart agriculture solutions, thus, ensures stability in global crop productivity and increases presence of sustainable cropland management practices. 

Apropos its latest research report, Future Market Insights presently values the global market for smart agriculture solutions at US$ 13,785 Mn. The report further projects that by the end of 2026, nearly US$ 40,000 Mn worth of revenues will be amassed by global smart agriculture solution market – registering an impressive CAGR of 11.2%.

According to the report, titled “Smart Agriculture Solutions Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment, 2016-2026,” adoption of smart agriculture solutions will keep surging on the account for wider availability of low-cost sensors, rising need to eliminate soil erosion from intensive farming, and soaring adoption of M2M-based monitoring & tracking systems. Although, companies providing smart agriculture solutions are still struggling to deploy their offerings due to lack of internet and wireless connectivity in farmlands & rural areas. 

Global Smart Agriculture Solutions Market: Key Players & Dominant Regions

The report profiles key players in the global smart agriculture solutions market, which include, Dirt Road Data, Inc., AgJunction LLC, Iteris, Inc., Agribotix LLC, AgriSight Inc., CropMetrics LLC, Granular, Inc., Site-Specific Technology Development Group, Inc., SemiosBio Technologies Inc., and Trimble Navigation Ltd. Since these companies are based across the US and Canada, the report has unmistakably deemed North America as the world’s largest smart agriculture solutions market. In 2016, more than 50% of global smart agriculture solution revenues was accounted by North America.
