Sugarcane Harvester Market By Harvester Type (Stalk Harvester, Chopper Harvester), By Number Of Rows (Single Row, Multiple Row) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis 2017 - 2025

A sugarcane harvester is a piece of agricultural machinery used to harvest and partially process sugarcane. In the sugarcane harvesting process, the harvester either pulls or cuts the cane stalk from the base and removes the leaves from the stalk. In addition, some harvesters also cut the sugarcane stalks into pieces of the desired size. A sugarcane harvester is available in a wide range of configurations depending on the size of the field, terrain, crops, and harvesting capacities. Using a sugarcane harvester provides a clean and hassle-free process of sugarcane harvesting for both green and burnt sugarcane. A mechanized harvester aids in the clean and easy processing of harvested sugarcane.

Sugarcane is cultivated for a variety of products, such as sugar, ethanol, jaggery, and fodder for feeding livestock. With the constant rise in population, global sugar consumption is increasing indefinitely. As a result, the sugarcane industry has grown dramatically in recent years. Rising demand for sugar and other substitute products produced from sugarcane has remarkably boosted overall sugarcane production across the world.

Subsequently, sugarcane harvesters have emerged as a potential market in recent years. In addition, new policies are being imposed by the governments of high-sugar-producing countries to encourage mechanized sugarcane farming. These factors are collectively expected to result in robust market growth for the sugarcane market in the coming years.

The global sugarcane harvester market is segmented, based on its harvesting types, into the following categories:

  • Stalk Harvester
  • Chopper Harvester

As of 2016, stalk harvesters were the dominant segment in terms of revenue in the overall sugarcane harvester market worldwide. Stalk harvesters are the first and most widely used sugarcane harvesters available on the market. They harvest sugar cane as whole stock by either directly uprooting or cutting the stalk from the bottom. When compared to the chopping harvester, the stalk harvester's process is faster and easier. In addition, the cost of a stalk harvester is less when compared to a cutting harvester. As a result, these harvesters are in higher demand in developing markets like the Asia Pacific and Latin America.

A cutting-type sugarcane harvester is the fastest-growing sugarcane harvester as of 2016. This particular type of harvester is equipped with the additional feature of cutting the harvested sugarcane stalk into pieces of the desired size. A cutting-type harvester reduces the after-processing cost of harvested sugarcane.

The global sugarcane harvesting market is segmented, based on the number of rows to be harvested, into the following categories:

  • Single Row
  • Multiple Row

Sugarcane harvesters are designed according to different traits, such as the size and nature of the field and crop. On the basis of the number of rows, multiple-row sugarcane harvesters dominate the overall sugarcane harvester market as of 2016. This particular type of sugarcane harvester can harvest multiple rows of crops simultaneously. Thus, the overall operational cost and time taken to harvest the sugarcane are reduced significantly, especially for large fields. A consistent rise in sugarcane production is expected to uplift the market for multiple-row sugar cane harvesters during the forecast.

The single-row sugarcane harvester segment follows the multiple-row harvester in terms of revenue. These harvesters are used in small fields with less space to harvest crops. Thus, single-row harvesters find very limited applications as compared to multiple-row harvesters. However, regions with small field sizes use this harvester extensively. Consequently, the growth of the single-row sugarcane harvester market is expected to remain limited during the forecast period.

The global sugarcane harvester market has been segmented on the basis of geographical regions, as per the following regions and countries:

  • North America
  • U.S.
  • Canada
  • Europe
  • U.K.
  • Germany
  • France
  • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Japan
  • China
  • India
  • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Rest of the World (RoW)
  • Middle East and Africa
  • Latin America

As of 2016, Asia Pacific dominates the overall sugarcane harvester market in terms of revenue. The market here is backed primarily by high-sugar cane-producing countries such as India, China, Pakistan, Thailand, the Philippines, and others. These countries are consistently trying to increase sugarcane production capacity. In addition, mechanized farming is one of the most popular trends observed across these countries. As a result, the region is projected to continue dominating the overall market during the forecast period.

As of 2016, Latin America trails the Asia Pacific in the overall sugarcane harvester market in terms of revenue. Latin America comprises countries such as Brazil, Mexico, and Columbia, which are amongst the top sugarcane-producing nations worldwide. Governments in these regions are developing policies to promote the mechanization of farming and increase production capacity. Consequently, the sugarcane harvester market is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period.
