Industry Overview

The global Agricultural Robots market is estimated to increase from USD 6.2 billion in 2023 to USD 15.5 billion by 2030, representing a 18.5 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) throughout the forecast period.

Agricultural robots represent sophisticated technological gadgets that are made to help in performing a variety of tasks. Depending on their make and configurations, robots can observe, analyze, and perform specific functions.

These devices are a wonderful aid for the farmers who do not have to perform the same task over and over again. The robots will do it all using their intellectual abilities to enhance their ability and production in turn.

As a result, these robots are used extensively in the agricultural field to perform repetitive chores most efficiently. The main objective behind this is to reduce the physical burden on humans to maximize productivity and profits.

Industry Trends

The global population is ever-rising and therefore the agricultural industry across the globe is facing immense pressure to keep up with the demand and supply of food. It needs enhanced production.

Shifting demographics and rapid urbanization have also affected the production of food crops of late. This has affected the agricultural sectors of those countries that rely extensively on migrant labor facing a serious shortage of labor. They largely have to rely on the aging farmers that limit yields.

So, using robots for automation is a productive alternative in the agricultural sector to complete tasks more efficiently and quickly. Thisis mainly due to lower human intervention. Technological advancements that combine automation and robotics seamlessly and the growing concern over environmental impacts among farmers have also resulted in the adoption of agricultural robots.

Market Segmentation

Insight by Type

The global agricultural robotsmarket can be divided according to its varied types, which include milking robots, unmanned tractors, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), harvest robots, material management, and more.

Out of all these, the automated harvest robots have a larger share of the market, which will grow even more in the forecast period. This is mainly due to the higher efficiency, convenience, and ability to do away with labor shortage. It increases production and helps in reducing food wastage and improving the supply chain.

However, the UAVmarket is also expected to grow within this period due to their wider applicability such as in crop protection, soil assessment, irrigation, and drainage planning. These unmanned aerial vehicles, also known as drones, are equipped with sensors and cameras that capture data and aerial pictures that help in crop monitoring, pest identification, and yield evaluation.

Insight by Application

Depending on the application, the market can be segregated into dairy, harvest, field farming, soil, and irrigation management markets. The dairy management market dominates in revenue share and will continue to do so in the forecast period. This is due to higher adoption, efficiency, and lower labor requirements.

However, the field farming management sector is supposed to grow notably within this period for its higher velocity, lower operational errors, and better operational quality. The machines use computer vision algorithms and robotic arms to ensure accuracy and minimize crop competition despite reduced herbicides. These machines help in increasing crop production due to better farming techniques and analysis of real-time data.

Insight by Offering

The market can be divided into software, hardware, and services sectors based on the offering. While hardware is the biggest revenue contributor due to the higher cost, the services sector is expected to grow remarkably during this period due to higher adoption to enhance production and quality.Hardware allows easy operation. The diverse applicability has increased its demand significantly and will continue to grow in the forecast period for better soil management, and field and dairy farming.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers

The population of the world is growing at a rapid rate, needing more food and faster production of food crops. Robots eliminate the effects of a shortage of labor.Also, automation technology and the merging of artificial intelligence and robotics have increased the adoption of these machines.

In addition, assistance and encouragement from the government, the need for sustainable and environmentally-friendly farming methods, better electronic connectivity and technology integration, lower cost, and higher ROI are some other significant growth factors of this market.


The high initial costs and several technological factors prevent SMEs develop such robots. Also, a larger section of the farmers do not know about these robots and their applications. However, over the years there has been a significant rise in awareness due to government initiatives and efforts are being made to reduce the cost involved. These developments will help overcome the challenges and allow the market to grow significantly in the forecast period.


The global agricultural robotsmarket is quite prospective mainly due to higher adoption and growing awareness among farmers worldwide about the utility of these multimodal systems in farming. Both aerial and ground systems offer significant opportunities in target farming and mission planning with their Artificial Intelligence to enhance efficiency and outcome.

With a systematic approach, autonomous systems and robots with telematic sensors can be integrated seamlessly for centralized control, facilitating large-scale production.
