Smart agriculture refers to an integrated management approach used for strengthening the agricultural sector. It leverages various advanced technologies, such as big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), and cloud-based solutions. Smart agriculture also includes optimization platforms, global positioning systems (GPS), sensors, satellites, telecommunication, and wide area networks that are deployed for data analytics, field mapping, irrigation supervision, weather tracking, soil scanning through sensors, and labor-management purposes. These tools, in turn, enable farmers to harvest, control inventory, and purchase essential components, thereby enhancing the overall crop yields.
The global smart agriculture market reached a value of US$ 14.1 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a value of US$ 25.25 Billion by 2027 exhibiting a CAGR of 9.80% during 2022-2027. The widespread adoption of smart agriculture across various applications, such as livestock monitoring, smart greenhouse, aquaculture, and precision farming for ensuring minimal manual intervention is one of the key factors driving the smart agriculture market growth. In line with this, the integration of the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud-based, and artificial intelligence (AI) solutions, for implementing the constant monitoring of crops is acting as another growth-inducing factor.
Additionally, the continual launch of various advanced devices, such as digital screens, smart sensors, modern biologicals, and robotic automations, is propelling the market growth. On account of the rising environmental concerns, governments of various nations are undertaking numerous initiatives to promote sustainable agriculture practices, which is contributing to the market growth further. This, in turn, helps in balancing the ecosystem, thereby ensuring optimal crop production and food security. Moreover, the widespread adoption of controlled environment agriculture (CEA) concept in greenhouses, along with the rising usage of light-emitting-diode (LED) grow lights in the CEA setup, is propelling the market growth. Other factors, including escalating demand for livestock technology for detecting early diseases and the extensive investments in the research and development (R&D) activities for introducing advanced agricultural techniques, are creating a positive outlook for the market.
