The global agricultural robots market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to the widespread use of robots in farming, milking, food production, and animal control to implement automated process for the industry. Robot technology is increasingly used for deploying machines for weed control, which results in increased crop yields. This may drive the agricultural robots market growth. Several benefits offered by agricultural robots such as eliminating herbicides and process automation are also anticipated to fuel market growth. In addition, robots meet stringent safety and hygiene regulations, work for longer time, and relieve human workers of physically demanding tasks, which may also favorably impact the agricultural robots market growth over the next few years.
Agricultural robots are robots deployed for agricultural purposes. The main area of agricultural robots application is during the harvesting stage. Robots significantly contribute to the freshness, variety, and quality of food. In addition, various uses of agricultural robots include automated harvesting systems, automated weed control, autonomous navigation in the fields, autonomous plowing, sorting and packing, row crop, vineyard, orchard, and dairy applications. Agricultural robots are capable of improving the delivery of consistent quality food and implementing efficiency in managing food production, which may propel the agricultural robots market demand. Additionally, agricultural robots improve labor productivity and provide speed and agility to harvest operations. This may also contribute extensively to the global agricultural robots market growth.

High manufacturing and installation costs associated with agricultural robots may pose as a challenge to market growth over the coming years. Additionally, guiding farmers towards a new economic model coupled with lack of skills to operate the robots is estimated to hinder market growth significantly. However, benefits such as increased productivity, decreased labor cost, and decreased farm overheads including seeds, herbicides, and fertilizers may impel market growth. Technological advancements coupled with increasing consumer disposable income is also expected to favorably impact market growth. Furthermore, extreme weather patterns across the globe have devastated crops leading to increased food prices paired with increasing awareness among consumers about the way their food is produced, and is resulting in difficulties for farmers to keep up with urban growth, which may further drive the global agricultural robots market growth over the forecast period.
Benefits of robotically cultivated crop over traditional cultivated crops such as fertilizer and pesticide-free crops, and organically produced food items are also anticipated to positively impact the agricultural robots market growth. Advanced agricultural robots are able to improve the delivery of consistent quality food and implement efficiency in managing food production. North America is expected to account for majority market share over the next few years owing to early adoption of agricultural robots in the region. Asia Pacific may exhibit high growth over the forecast period owing to increasing adoption of agricultural robots coupled with increasing population leading to rising demand for food in the region.
