Agriculture Drone Market Set to Take Off: Shocking Uptick in Demand Predicted

The market for agricultural drones is anticipated to be valued at US$ 3,807.0 million in 2023 and to grow at a CAGR of 14.1% to US$ 14,237.6 million by the end of 2033. The drone market is anticipated to grow at a 15.3% CAGR through 2023, when it is expected to ship 7.6 million units worldwide. A lot of money is spent on the use of drones in agriculture as a result of technological advancements. By the end of 2022, sales of agricultural drones held a nearly 11% market share worldwide.

The global agriculture drone market is growing rapidly as the technology has become increasingly viable and cost-effective for farmers. According to some estimates, the agricultural drone industry could reach a value of more than $6 billion by 2026. Agriculture drones are used in various activities such as precision spraying and irrigation scheduling, monitoring crop growth and health, soil analysis & mapping etc. This allows precise application of fertilizers, pesticides & herbicides which optimizes yield without damaging crops or affecting neighbouring areas with unintended drift. Drones are also being used to monitor livestock status. They offer an efficient solution that helps save time and money while keeping track on overall farm performance accurately over large acreages at unprecedented speed compared to traditional methods like manual aerial surveys

Why is Demand for Agriculture Drone High in Japan?

When it comes to embracing new technologies, Japan has always maintained its lead. From 11 million farmers in total in 1965 to fewer than 2 million in 2020, the number of farmers in Japan has decreased. As a result, the Japanese government has set a target to adopt agriculture UAVs for more than half of the land area nationwide that is cultivated with wheat, soy, and rice by 2022. These reasons have led to a growth in agriculture drone demand over the past century, which is expected to reach US$ 195.8 million in 2023.
