The Precision Agriculture Market is projected to reach $27.81 billion by 2031, at a CAGR of 12.9% from 2024 to 2031. The growth of the precision agriculture market is driven by increasing government initiatives promoting the use of modern technologies in the agriculture sector and the surging demand for precision agriculture solutions due to climatic changes. However, the lack of connectivity and infrastructure in rural areas restrains the growth of this market.
Furthermore, technological advancements in the farming sector and the shortage of agricultural laborers are expected to generate growth opportunities for the players operating in this market. However, farmers’ lack of awareness regarding precision agriculture technologies is a major challenge impacting market growth.
Additionally, the increasing use of drones for variable rate applications and the integration of AI and big data analytics technologies into precision agriculture solutions are prominent trends in the precision agriculture market.
