Analysts’ Viewpoint

The global four-wheel drive tractor market is expected to expand at a moderate CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period. The market is mainly driven by factors such as flourishing agricultural sector in developing regions, advancements in technology leading to innovations, and growing shift toward precision farming and farm mechanization. In addition, as novel technologies such as AI continue to make an impact across the four-wheel drive tractor market, the demand for four-wheel drive tractors is expected to grow in the upcoming decade.  

Four-Wheel Drive Tractor Market: Overview

  • The global four-wheel drive tractor market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period, owing to adoption of technologies by tractor manufacturers, which enhance tractor efficiency and performance. Increase in demand for electric tractors coupled with the demand for tractor technology to reduce emissions is likely to propel the global four-wheel drive tractor market during the forecast period.
  • Technological advancements in battery technology have enabled players operating in the global four-wheel drive tractor market to enhance the cruising range of electric tractors. Technologies adopted in electric tractors, including all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive, further enhance tractor ride handling, improve tractor performance on-road as well as off-road are likely to boost customer preference toward electric tractors. This, in turn, is projected to drive the global four-wheel drive tractor market during the forecast period.

Drivers of Four-Wheel Drive Tractor Market

  • Rising adoption of agricultural equipment in developing and developed countries where agriculture is a major contributor to their respective economies, which in turn is boosting the rate of harvesting. Increasing population is fueling the demand for agricultural products consistently, which further boosts the demand for powerful tractors with four-wheel drives. Currently, farmers require large and more powerful tractors for heavy applications in farming in order to boost agricultural yield. This, in turn, is estimated to propel the demand for four-wheel drive tractors across the globe.
  • Autonomous tractors are able to perform all functions such as harvesting, sowing, fertilization, and scarifying by itself; thus, they perform uniformly throughout the farm and reduce human errors. Fertilization of crops is a crucial aspect of farming, and manual fertilization is highly inconsistent and non-uniform. Therefore, autonomous tractors are likely to fertilize the crops in a uniform manner and increase yield. This, in turn, is anticipated to drive the global four-wheel drive tractor market.

Challenges for Four-Wheel Drive Tractor Market

  • Disruptions in supply chain catering to the automobile industry, owing to shutdown of production and manufacturing facilities and raw material shortage caused by the coronavirus pandemic across the world, is estimated to contract the market in 2020.
