Global Combine Harvesters Market Trends:
The multi-crop combine harvesters is gaining popularity in the global market over the forecast period. The demand for crawler type combine harvesters is also expected to witness noteworthy growth over the forecast period. The demand for these combine harvesters is driven by their high efficiency in harvesting the crops.
The government is encouraging farmers to adopt innovative technology. The rise in population is also resulting in increased demand for food products across the world. The increase in the farming population will result in high demand for combine harvesters in the global market. The growing awareness about improved technology will also fuel the growth of the market.
Global Combine Harvesters Market Restraints:
Fragmentation of land holdings restrict the market growth. Fragmentation of land holdings restrict the physical movement of combine harvesters. In regions, such as Middle East, Southeast Asia, and Africa, the practice of equal inheritance among farm household has led to fragmentation of farmland, leads to the low average farm acreage limiting the usage of combine harvesters.
Volatile price of commodity is expected to hamper the market growth. According to the United States Equipment Manufacturers Association, the sale of combine harvesters in United States decreased by 2%, from the beginning of 2020 to July 2020. This is majorly due to the historical low prices of corn and soybeans, which have affected the farm incomes. Thus, the commodity prices has a direct impact on the sales of combine harvester’s.

*Definition: Combine harvesters are huge machines that are used to collect and process crops. These massive machines can do lever work with the flick of a switch and are now equipped with many features. These combines are capable of processing up to 200 acres a day. In addition, combines are now equipped with GPS and GIS technologies that enable farmers to create maps of their field. These technologies have made it possible to make yield maps of the most productive fields.
Combine harvesters are huge machines, with moving parts that are used to gather a variety of grains from the fields. The machines are usually equipped with tires that allow them to move even in the most adverse weather conditions. In addition, they can be unloaded while they are moving. The threshing process is one of the most important aspects of combine harvesters. The threshing drum of a combine is fitted with grooved steel bars that separate grains from the chaff. Grain that has been separated is moved into a grain tank and then into a trailer that is attached to the combine. The straw is blown from the back of the machine. It is often collected and tied into bundles. It can be chopped and used for bedding or limited feed for livestock.
The major drivers for the combine harvesters market include erratic climate conditions, increasing demand for cereals, and the scarcity of labor. The rising need for improve farm productivity and the increasing awareness of better technology are other factors that are expected to propel the market growth. Increasing population has led to an increased requirement for food products globally. This in turn has prompted the need for improved farm productivity. The rise in the global demand for agricultural commodities has driven the production of combine harvesters in the recent past, thereby fueling the market growth. The adoption of combine harvesters by SMEs has also resulted in surge in demand for the machinery. The use of combine harvesters has also spurred the development of innovative technology in the farming sector. This is projected to hold lucrative market growth opportunities.
On the other hand, fluctuating price of commodity is expected to restrict the adoption of harvesters among farmers. This is expected to hinder the market growth over the forecast period.
