Furthermore, increasing demand for high-power tractors is also expected to provide market players with growth opportunities in the global agricultural tractor market during the forecast period. The demand for tractors with high power is increasing for more than 10-hectare farm sizes. The developing countries such as Brazil, China and India having strong government support for development in agriculture are likely to be the strongest markets for farm tractors. For instance, as per the China Agricultural Machinery Distribution Association, the overall number of tractors with 100 horsepower and above sold in China was 73,400 units in 2017.

Global Agricultural Tractor Market Trends:

Emergence of autonomous tractors is a growing trend in the global agricultural tractor market. Driverless or autonomous tractors operate without any supervision from humans and are utilized in plowing, tillage and other farming activities. These tractors are considered as a revolutionary product in agricultural industry around the globe.  The size of these tractors is half of the normal machine, and they do not consist a seat or steering. Thus, with several advantages offered by autonomous tractors, the demand for these machines is increasing around the globe, which is expected to fuel the market growth in the coming future.

Key players in the market are increasingly focusing on launch of novel products, which is expected to fuel growth of the global agricultural tractor market over the forecast period. For instance, in February 2021, Tractors and Farm Equipment or TAFE, who manufacture Massey Ferguson tractors announced the launch of its novel DYNATRACK Series of advanced tractor range offering dynamic performance, unmatched utility, sophisticated technology and versatility in a one single powerful tractor.
