DUBLIN, Nov. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/gslj25/global) has announced the addition of the "Global Agricultural Robots Market - Market Research 2015-2019" report to their offering.
The global agricultural robots market to grow at a CAGR of 11.07% over the period 2014-2019.
This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global agricultural robots market for the period 2015-2019. The global robot market is classified into two types: industrial and service robots. Service robots can be further classified into two categories: professional services and personal services. Agricultural robots fall under the professional services category.
Robots that can harvest fruits and vegetables are slowly gaining momentum in the market. The continuous availability of labor in orchards makes farm owners reluctant to use robots in the field. In addition, the agricultural robots available on the market currently do not have the ability to differentiate between flowers, fruits, and leaves in an orchard environment. This has triggered the demand for robots that use advanced sensors to differentiate fruits from other parts and work in tandem with the labor in the orchards.
According to the report, countries worldwide are striving to reduce their dependence on importing agricultural food products. Following this, the focus on improving agricultural activities to enhance efficiency and accelerate productivity has increased. Governments worldwide are introducing modern practices such as the adoption of robotics. Many countries have less farmland to meet their growing population needs.
This has compelled them to increase their focus on developing their agriculture sector. For example, China has bought land in Africa, Latin America, and the Ukraine in order to grow corn, soybeans, and sunflowers. To enable farming in these lands, many agricultural robots were used for tasks such as pruning, weeding, and spraying.
Further, the report states that the costs of robots are relatively high, making their adoption difficult for small individual users and companies in the agricultural sector.
