The coronavirus pandemic has negatively impacted the autonomous farm equipment market growth. The outbreak has encouraged government administrations to impose strict lockdown measures & travel restrictions. It has hindered the logistics & manufacturing capabilities of several companies, thus impacting the overall sales. In addition, the introduction of travel regulations, further, developed labor shortage challenges for farm owners and created barriers in terms of hiring a suitable workforce for conducting applications across the field. This factor has encouraged growers to implement advanced technologies to continue work and increase productivity.
 

The lack of labor in the farming domain will propel the fully autonomous solution segment in Japan

The Japan autonomous farm equipment industry is expected to witness around 11% growth rate through 2027 due to rising workforce issues in the sector. Players in the domain are constantly emphasizing on improving their solution offerings to establish a differentiated market positioning and cater to a large set of customers. These factors have encouraged companies to introduce new features in the product line for tackling labor shortage issues.

 

For instance, in February 2021, Yanmar Agribusiness upgraded its autonomous tractor range with full autonomous work. The company has included multi-frequency antennas and advanced GNSS satellite features, thus improving positioning, RTK coverage & precision of the equipment. It will also support in addressing the aging farming population problems of the sector.
