Seeders are essential equipment in agriculture that enable sowing of several seeds simultaneously in the soil. Different types of seeders are utilized as an agriculture equipment depending upon the type of farm and size of farm. The seeder has multiple advantages such as easy to use, low maintenance, easy to hook up the equipment, and high efficiency, and reduced operation cost. It can be employed for both seed and fertilizers. A majority of manufacturers are focusing on developing technically advanced seeding equipment, which require less maintenance. Development of highly advanced and technically superior agriculture equipment is a major factor that is estimated to boost the agriculture seeder market during the forecast period. However, high capital investment is likely to hinder the agriculture seeder market during the forecast period.
The agriculture seeder market can be segmented based on seeder type, application, component, and region. Based on seeder type, the agriculture seeder market can be segregated into air seeder, box drill seeder, and other. Air seeders are mostly utilized for seeding round and small seeds. It is a highly promising type of seeder owing to its advantages over other types of seeder such as it makes transport easier, require less maintenance, and fertilizes at the same time while seeding. Considering all these factors, expansion of the air seeder is likely to drive the agriculture seeder market during the forecast period.
Based on application, the agriculture seeder market can be classified into seeding and one more segment. The seeding segment is anticipated to dominate the agriculture seeder market during forecast period, and it is likely hold a prominent share of the market during the forecast period. Seeding is a crucial and basic process to increase crop yield. Consequently, the seeding segment is likely to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period.
Based on component, the agriculture seeder market can be classified into primary head, secondary head, mixer elbow with riser pipe, primary venture, air seeder boot, splitter, and others. Agriculture seeder is built by using numerous combination of inlets and outlets, pressurized box system, fans and venturi. All these components are crucial for the working of the agriculture seeder.
Based on sales channel, the agriculture seeder market can be segmented into OEMs and aftermarket. A majority of components after a certain period wear out, and consumers prefer aftermarket workshops for replacement. The aftermarket segment is witnessing expansion owing to its advantages over OEMs sales channel.
Based on region, the agriculture seeder market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. North America dominates the global agriculture seeder market owing to the presence of multinational and regional manufacturers in the region. In North America, the U.S. is witnessing technological development in the field of agriculture equipment and is also witnessing a increasing preference towards precision farming. Consequently, North America is likely to hold a major share of the global agriculture seeder market during forecast period.
Significant players operating in the global agriculture seeder market include AGCO Corporation, Bourgault Industries Ltd., CNH Industrial, Deere & Company, Morris Industries, Seed Hawk, Amity Technology, Clean Seed Capital Group, Gandy Company, and Great Plains Manufacturing.
