“The Agricultural Tractor Market Is Expected To Be Flourished By Rise In Demand For Technologically Advanced Tractors”

Agricultural tractors are non-highway vehicles used for various agricultural applications including tilling, planting, fertilizing, harvesting and others. It is one of the most important machinery used on a farm and helps to reduce manual labor and improve farm productivity. Major types of agricultural tractors include two-wheel drive, four-wheel drive and autonomous tractors.

The global agricultural tractor market is estimated to be valued at US$ 87.16 Bn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.2% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

The global agricultural tractor market is driven by the rising demand for technologically advanced tractors with features such as GPS, front-loading bucket, multi-function implement control and autonomous driving for agricultural applications. Advanced technologies and automation in tractors enable accurate seeding and application of fertilizers through GPS, reduce manual labor requirements and improve farm efficiency. Furthermore, growing demand for food owing to increasing population globally has intensified agricultural activities and boosted the sales of agricultural tractors.

Market Dynamics:
One of the key drivers for the agricultural tractor market is the rise in demand for technologically advanced tractors. The introduction of technologies such as GPS, telemetry, auto-guidance and automation in tractors is improving farm efficiency and productivity. Advanced tractors with technologies such as GPS and auto-guidance enable accurate seeding and application of fertilizers which reduces wastage and improves yield. In addition, autonomous tractors reduce the dependence on labor and improve overall farm operations through precision agriculture. The increasing demand for such innovative tractors equipped with latest technologies is fueling the growth of the agricultural tractor market.

The increasing food demand owing to rising population is also augmenting market growth. With population projected to reach around 9.7 billion by 2050, there will be a substantial rise in demand for food globally. This has intensified agricultural activities and boosted the demand for heavy machinery including agricultural tractors for various farm activities such as sowing, harvesting etc. Advanced tractors help improve agricultural productivity and meet the growing food demand thereby supporting the market growth.

Segment Analysis
Agricultural Tractor Market Size
is segmented based on horsepower such as low horsepower and high horsepower. Dominating the market is the high horsepower segment with above 50 horsepower tractors accounting for over 75% share of the global market in 2024. High horsepower tractors are preferred for large farms and commercial applications where high productivity and power output is required for operations such as plowing, seeding and harvesting over large acreages.

PEST Analysis
