COVID-19 Lockdown Exemptions for Agricultural Machinery Shops Reduce Stress on Supply Chains

Lockdown relaxations in orange and green zones of India’s several states are bearing a positive news for companies in India’s agricultural & forestry machinery market amidst the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Since agriculture is one of the primary revenue-generating industries of India, lockdown relaxations are offering a relief to farmers that will help reduce the stress on supply chains. However, heads of agricultural organizations are instructed to ensure proper hygiene measures and social distancing norms among farm workers.

Shops of agricultural & forestry machineries and spare part & repair shops have been exempted from lockdown norms to facilitate farm produce. Such constructive measures by the Indian Government are benefitting equipment manufacturers in the agricultural & forestry machinery market. Even the tea industry is allowed to conduct plantations with a functional workforce of maximum 50 percent.

Increasing Mechanization of Farming & Forestry Operations: A Key Driver of Agricultural & Forestry Machinery Market

  • The agricultural & forestry machinery market is driven by increasing adoption of farm machinery for mechanization of farming operations. The mechanization of farming operations results in increased production and profitability by achieving timeliness in farming operations. This in turn helps farmers in optimum utilization of costly inputs such as fertilizers, seeds, and irrigation. Farm mechanization also helps in the preservation of farm produce, which further improves profitability by reducing post-harvest losses.
  • Traditionally, forestry activities were performed manually with a large labor force. However, with increasing urbanization and industrialization and mechanization in forestry, labor force is being replaced by forestry machinery. In addition, increasing government subsidies to promote farm and forestry production has resulted in rising mechanization across the globe, thereby improving the quantity of agricultural & forestry produce.
  • Demand for food is expected to rise substantially, owing to the significant increase in global population during the forecast period. Rising food demand has encouraged the adoption of advanced farming and forestry practices to increase crop yields, which is further resulting in the demand for agricultural machinery globally.
  • Rising demand for food and forestry products, owing to the growing global population has led to innovation in agricultural & forestry practices worldwide. Machinery such as tractors and harvesters are used in plowing and harvesting, which in turn, increases productivity.
  • Machinery manufacturers such as Deere & Company are focusing on developing advanced machinery, which can be utilized to increase productivity to the highest possible value
  • Increasing awareness about the importance of technology in agriculture and forestry practices is one of the major factors driving the growth of the agricultural & forestry machinery market globally. Integration of advanced technologies such as GPS tracking and telematics system in machinery is further expected to revolutionize the agriculture & forestry industry. This is likely to drive the agricultural & forestry machinery market over the next few years.

Governments Offering Subsidies and Promotion of Advanced Machinery a Significant Opportunity for Agricultural & Forestry Machinery Market

  • Farmers are sometimes deprived of opportunities to purchase agricultural machinery for farm production due to inadequacy of funds. In order to counter this restraint, governments worldwide are promoting and encouraging the adoption of farm machinery by providing subsidies on this equipment, thereby allowing manufacturers to offer the equipment at lower rates. In addition, manufacturers collaborating with regional bodies to gain contracts for supply of innovative solutions such as electrified machinery to save energy and avoid toxic pollution under various schemes of sustainable environment programs is an opportunity for the growth of the market.
  • Growth in both exports and domestic demand provides manufacturers an opportunity to maximize their profit margins. This is expected to enhance the demand for agricultural & forestry machinery across the globe.

Electrification of Agricultural & Forestry Machinery Industry: Key Trend of the Market

  • These days, global manufacturers are offering innovative electrification models of agricultural & forestry machinery to meet the standards of sustainable energy. Manufacturers are also offering an economy range i.e., affordable and low-power tractors, harvesters, and soil cultivating machines suitable for small-size farmers. Key players opt for V & VI generation of engine in machinery to improve its efficiency and overall productivity.
  • In recent years, mechanization of farming has revolutionized farming practices across the world. Precision farming is a key trend in the field of agriculture, currently. It comprises the use of various technologies in farming practices such as high-precision positioning systems, a range of IT applications combined with high-tech engineering, and smart sensors.

Growing Urbanization and Decreasing Farmlands & Forestlands to Hamper Expansion of Agricultural & Forestry Machinery Market

  • In recent years, farmlands & forestlands are utilized in profitable business investments such as construction of housing, hotels, and shopping centers. As a result, farmlands, meadows, and forests are vanishing rapidly. This has had an indirect impact on the use of agricultural & forestry machinery. Ironically, decreasing farmlands & forestlands make it essential to produce adequate supply of agro & forestry products with better efficiency.
  • Maximum production could be obtained from minimum land by using machinery; however, high cost of machinery and low purchasing power of owners further restrains the adoption of these equipment. These are factors influencing regulatory bodies to implement stringent laws for the protection of farmlands & forestlands and maintain ecological balance.
  • In addition, rising awareness about the importance of protecting the environment by maintaining forestlands is also one of the major factors that restrains the growth of the agricultural & forestry machinery market. This has directly become a major challenge for the growth of the agricultural & forestry machinery market.
  • Manufacturers of heavy machinery have to sacrifice quality in order to maintain a low price. Farmers are unable to buy these machineries despite being aware of their good performance due to their financial stringency. Therefore, small-scale farmers are generally satisfied with the minimum serviceability of available machinery.
  • Furthermore, inadequate skills and lack of technical expertise of machinery owners results in high operational cost and makes investment in mechanization expensive and less attractive. Penetration of energy-efficient machinery has high initial costs and thus many owners avoid purchasing it on account of their low purchasing power.
