Seeding Planters Market size is estimated to witness a significant growth in the forecast timespan. The product market has gained momentum due to the technological advancements in agricultural machinery. The market is driven by several benefits linked with the use of seeding planters. Improvement in livelihoods of farmers depends on the adoption of innovative and sustainable crop systems.
The product saves time and manual labor, which has propelled the demand for seed planters. The high demand of crops in food industry due to the rising consumption has driven the industry of the product. The demand for food is likely to grow at a fast pace due to the exponentially growing population which will drive the demand for the product. The product is cost effective in long run. The product will replace the traditional ways of sowing seeds such animal-based or human-based techniques.
Developed countries have already employed the product for agricultural practices. The boom in technological invention of driverless tractors will be a driving force for the product market. However, due to the high investment needed for seeding planters, the growth of the product market can slow down, majorly in developing economies where there is a scarcity of funds.
The planting operation is a major step in crop production. The product is mainly a tractor-powered equipment used for crop production, that lays seeds in rows. It is connected to the tractor with a three-point hitch. The difference between the planters is the method of driving them. They can be hydraulic or electrically driven and mechanically driven. The seeders can be human-powered planters, animal-powered planters or tractor-powered planters. The number of rows planted depends on the number of furrow openers. In multi-row planters, the furrow openers are uniformly spaced.
The seeding planters can be categorized on the basis of attachment type, planter type and region. Based on attachment type, the product market can be segmented into trailed, semi-mounted and front/rear/mid mounted. Trailed planter is connected to the drawbar hitch point and requires its own depth control wheels to provide support. Semi-mounted planter is pivotally attached to tractor’s two lower three-point linkage points and requires depth wheels toward the rear of the machine’s frame. Mounted planter is attached to the tractor via a three-point linkage system in front of tractor’s front wheels.
Based on the planter type, the product market can be segmented into drill, broadcast, dibble, precision and specialized. Broadcast planter randomly distributes seeds in the soil. An additional operation of covering the seeds is required as the seeds are not planted in furrows. This type of planter is not viable for cash crops because of limitation of controlling agronomic requirements. Drill planters sow seeds in furrows in definite rows with a narrow row spacing and are suitable for planting cereal crops such as wheat, oats, barley, etc. They are also called solid crop planters. Precision planter places single seed or a group of seeds along a furrow with equal spacing between the seeds. It is also called summer crop planter, unit planter or row crop planter. The crops that can be grown via this planter are field crops such as maize, soybeans, sorghum, cotton, etc. Dibble or punch planters sow seeds or a group of seeds in holes instead of furrows. These planters can be manually operated or tractor-mounted. Specialized planters place the whole plants in soil instead of sowing seeds.
Based on region, the product market can be divided into Latin America, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East and Africa. North America and Europe are the dominating markets for seeding planter due to the adoption of advanced technologies in agriculture. Asia Pacific region also has a great potential for small and medium scale seeding planters in emerging economies, due to more crop demand and rising population.
Major players in the product market include Deere & Company, Kasco Manufacturing Co., Inc., Case IH, AGCO Corporation, Bobcat Company, Burch Implements, National Agro Industries, Khedut Agro Engineering Pvt. Ltd., Bharat Agro Engineering, Yucheng Yijia Machinery Co., Ltd., Monosem Inc., etc.
