Market Synopsis

 Farm Tractors Market

The ‘31HP to 100HP’ power output segment exhibited its dominance in the overall farm tractors market

In 2017, farm tractors with power output ranging from 31HP to 100HP was most dominating in the overall farm tractors market in terms of value. Such tractors are widely used for multiple farm applications and extensively procured by farmers and cultivators of corn, soybean and vegetables, among others. Higher demand for such tractors is observed especially in developing nations where farmers are more inclined towards cultivating cash crops. Sales of tractors above 100HP are proportional to direct profits earned by the farmers. Stagnation in direct profits earned by farmers from 2011 to 2015 has affected the sales of farm tractors with power output 100HP to 200HP. Heavy applications such as towing hay wagons, thrashers and windrowers among others are carried out by tractors with power output ranging from 200HP to 300HP. In addition, extremely heavy towing applications such as towing combines has been done by farm tractors with power output above 300HP. However, application for both power range tractors is limited to large agricultural fields and primarily used in developed regions such as North America and Eastern Europe. Furthermore, rising sales of self-propelled combines and other agricultural equipment have affected the sales of farm tractors with power output 201HP to 300Hp and above 300HP segment.
