The adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) is growing at a significant rate. Cognitive computing in particular, is all set to become the most disruptive technology in agriculture services as it can understand, learn, and respond to different situations (based on learning) to increase efficiency.
Strong growth is seen in the deployment as well as adoption of IoT devices across the globe. Proximity sensing and remote sensing are two technologies which are primarily used for intelligent data fusion in agriculture industry. IoT has propelled the agriculture industry by providing insights on historical weather patterns, soil reports, new research, rainfall, pest infestation, images from drones and cameras, and so on. These crucial insights are improving productivity and quality, thus driving the growth of agriculture.
Regions such as the Middle East, Asia, and South America face strong technological and digital gaps within the agriculture industry. The level of awareness among farmers is comparatively low in countries such as India, and other Asian countries. The network infrastructure to smoothly run artificial intelligence in agriculture at remote locations is not very effective. Unawareness about artificial intelligence in agriculture and poor network infrastructure is hampering the growth of the artificial intelligence in agriculture market.
In terms of region, the global artificial intelligence in agriculture market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa. North America is expected to dominate the artificial intelligence in agriculture market during the forecast period due to its strong dominance in artificial intelligence across the globe.
The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to moderately impact the global artificial intelligence in agriculture market for a short-term period. The level of investment with regards to AI in agriculture has been reduced due to the lockdown in almost every region, as it requires major capital investment. It is expected that COVID-9 will impact this market till 2020 year end.
