Smart Harvest Market: Key Factors Fueling the Market Growth and Global Players

The smart harvest market is projected to reach USD 15.6 billion by 2023, from USD 9.0 billion in 2018, at a CAGR of 11.81% during the forecast period. The rise in population has led to increased food demand, which in turn has led to increased pressure on farmers to increase yield and area harvested for various crops. However, global labor shortage in agriculture is one of the major factors leading to loss of yield due to improper maintenance and farming practices. To cater to this issue, farmers are highly adopting farm mechanization and other smart agriculture techniques to optimize their crop yields.

On the basis of component, the hardware segment is projected to be the largest contributor in the smart harvest market during the forecast period

The smart harvest market has been segmented on the basis of component into hardware and software. The market for software is projected to record the higher CAGR between 2018 and 2023. The hardware aspect of the smart harvest market includes harvesting robots, automation and control systems, sensors, and imaging systems. All three hardware components are designed to coordinate their activities to move, identify, and harvest the fruit/vegetable. In the coming years, the integration of AI (Artificial Intelligence) in the smart harvest systems would allow the machines to make their own decisions based on the appropriate parameters.

Declining farmlands to drive growth for indoor farming applications of smart harvest in the coming years

The smart harvest market is segmented on the basis of site of operation into on-field, greenhouses, and indoor farming. The market for on-field systems is projected to record the highest CAGR between 2018 and 2023. The development of smart harvest technologies and robots aims to minimize the impact of labor shortage, while also maximizing the benefits realized by the end users in the form of cost and time benefits. Declining farmlands in developing countries are expected to favor the growth for indoor systems during the next decade.

Improving hardware dexterity drives the growth for harvesting robot technologies in fruits during the forecast period

The harvesting robots market is segmented on the basis of crop type into vegetables and fruits. Manufacturers are developing and testing various harvesting robot technologies for commercial deployment during the forecast period. The current generation of smart harvest technologies is capable of harvesting a variety of fruits including apples, strawberries, and citrus fruits (lemons and oranges). The use of smart harvest systems expands the possibilities of integrating yield monitoring sensors and ripening controllers across a wide variety of fruits.
