Smart Plantation Management Systems Market By Type (Irrigation System, Harvesting System, Plantation Growth Monitoring System), By Crop (Coffee, Oilseeds, Sugarcane, Fruits, Cotton, Others), By Component (Hardware, Software) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2019 -2027

“Rising investments towards smart plantation farming and growing awareness for optimized plantation system will boost the market.”

The global smart plantation management systems market is growing competently, expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.0% during the estimated period from 2019 to 2027, starting from US$ 1.26 Bn in 2018.

Rising adoption of new technologies like cloud computing and the internet of things (IoT) coupled with the introduction of the robotic system. Technological development like electronic systems and data transmission introduced essential changes to the agricultural working environment in recent years. In addition, the development of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with autonomous flight control systems and powerful and lightweight hyperspectral snapshot cameras is expected to improve the plantation management system. Moreover, the application of decision-tree models and advanced software platforms in smart plantation management systems allows farmers to differentiate between plant diseases based on optical information. For instance, Shivrai Technologies Private Limited, an IT solutions service provider, offers various integrated software platforms such as “FarmERP,” “FarmERP Lite,” and “Farm Gyan,” which provides an advanced level of analytics to support smart plantation management system.

Smart plantation management systems are projected to boost the market owing to site-specific weather forecasts, probability maps for diseases, yield projections, and disaster-based information, allowing the cultivation of crops optimally. Additionally, the application of technologies like supply chain farm robotics, machine learning, blockchain, and remote sensing in plantation management systems offers information regarding waste reduction, environmental sustainability, soil optimization, and analysis of agricultural facts.

Market Synopsis


Type Analysis

“Increasing adoption of smart irrigation technologies and various government initiatives accounts to hold a higher revenue share across the market.”

The irrigation systems segment is projected to hold the largest market value and dominate the smart plantation management systems market in 2019. Smart irrigation systems use sensors to control and monitor the watering schedule, thereby enhancing an optimized utilization of water required by plantation crops. Furthermore, the use of smart irrigation systems moderates the water requirements, owing to the reduction of operating costs for large farmland. For instance, according to the International Center for Water Technology and Irrigation Association, smart irrigation systems are used to save water around 25% as compared to customary irrigation systems. The aforementioned factors are expected to boost the market on a global scale over the forecast period.

Applying the internet of things (IoT) in the agriculture industry enables farmers to overcome a few challenges like limited availability of lands, increasing water shortages, difficulty in managing costs, and meeting consumption needs. Moreover, the rising adoption of new technologies such as “3NV Nozzle System”, “Pivot Control Panel,” Soil Moisture Sensors,” and “Remote Sensing Technology” in irrigation systems will enhance the market growth. In addition, automation in the nursery and farm irrigation system will reduce the mistreatment of automation instrumentation, thereby allowing farmers towards optimal use of water at a precise time.


Regional Analysis

“Dominance is led by the growing implementation towards new technologies and government initiatives for large scale agriculture business.”

The Asia Pacific market is accounted to hold the largest share in 2018, and the dominance is accredited to favorable climatic conditions for plantation and other fruits. In addition, the bulky cultivation of agricultural crops created a huge potential, including sugarcane, tea, and cotton. Furthermore, the wide-scale adoption of smart plantation management systems across the region is projected to witness robust growth, improving crop yield with enhanced usage of resources. On the other hand, China clamps the foremost market share, owing to a large cultivable area for tea, fruits, sugarcane, and plantation crops. Furthermore, this region is characterized by government supports to promote the Internet of Things (IoT) in farming, a rise in concerns toward the environment, adverse climatic conditions, and reduction in the number of farmlands, and a decrease in productivity.

Introduction of industrialization, digital agriculture, and mechanization of production processes, data management, and connectivity unleased the agriculture and plantation sector. Advancement in new technologies such as “Agriculture 4.0”, “Robotics,” “artificial intelligence (AI),” “Big Data,” “Precision Farming,” and R&D investments is projected to drive the demand for smart plantation management systems across the region.
