Market Drivers

The increasing inclination of the worldwide population towards consuming a protein-rich diet is consistently increasing the adoption of cutting-edge technologies like AI, IoT, machine learning, remotely operated vehicles (ROEs), acoustic telemetry tracking systems, and automatic feeders by aquaculture farm owners. Aquaculture farming can benefit from technological advances which improve production, reduce resource waste, improve accuracy & repeatability, and production efficiency & precision – ultimately increasing profitability for farm owners. Drones, sensors, and AI have made data collection about crop growth patterns, weather patterns, soil health & other aspects of agriculture much simpler & cost-effective to collect and analyze. At the same time, consumers are becoming increasingly concerned with the environment & want to know where their food comes from; these innovations offer farmers a chance to display their impact on the world around them.

Market Restraints

Agriculture is a decentralized industry comprised of numerous small, medium, and large farms operating independently. Due to the unique needs and requirements of each farm, it can be challenging to implement an industry-standard machine-to-machine (M2M) solution. Incorrect allocations of resources or incorrect implementation of smart agriculture technology in divided lands can result in high costs, wasted time, and money; managing supervision and data collection from scattered lands also prove difficult. Farmers also find it challenging when using M2M solutions to achieve economies of scale.

Market Opportunities

Due to high installation costs and a lack of awareness among farmers, the adoption of livestock monitoring technology is slow in emerging countries like Brazil and Mexico. However, due to rising dairy product demand and per capita income levels in these nations, demand will increase for such devices as milking robots and feeding robots in the coming years. IoT technology can be utilized for collecting data from agricultural devices and sensors which will enable farmers to make better decisions regarding fertilization, planting, and irrigation. Vertical farming is a method of growing crops vertically stacked layers; there are numerous opportunities for developing and selling vertical farming technologies.
