Agriculture Robots Market, By Offering (Hardware, Software, and Services), By Type (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)/Drones, Milking Robot, Driverless Tractors, Automated Harvesting Systems, and Other Robots), By Application (Harvest Management, Field Farming, Dairy Farm Management, Soil Management, Irrigation Management, Weather Tracking & Monitoring, Pruning, and Others {Fruit picking, Inventory Management}), and By Region - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2017-2025

Agriculture robots are utilization in agricultural purposes for application at harvesting stage. Robots can be utilized in agriculture for sensing, actuation, and computation of the requirement of plants, which is difficult for a humans. Robots have wide applications in agriculture, which includes soil analysis, cloud seeding, weed control, planting seeds, environmental monitoring, and harvesting. Rosphere, Merlin Robot Milker, harvest automation, and orange harvester are some of the prototypes of robots in this field.

Rising demand for high yields and better quality of harvest is a factor for driving growth of the market. Agriculture robots plays an important role in plantation, fertilizing, and harvesting of crops. Robots helps in better decisions making by providing detailed data at every stage of agriculture. This technology is used for monitoring the quality of crops and helps to enhance production. These are expected to boost growth of the global agriculture robots market over the forecast period.

In addition to this, another major application of robots in agriculture is horticulture. Manufacturers are focusing on launching products for application in horticulture. This is another factor for aiding in growth of the market. For instance, Harvest Automation Inc. manufactures RV100, which is designed to organize and handle plants including collection of plants, spraying, and monitoring. Driverless sprayer, driverless tractors, and fruit picking robots can be utilized to automate manual work such as washing.

However, high initial investment cost and lack of technical awareness in agricultural robotics technology are two major factors expected to restraint growth of the global agriculture robots market over the forecast period.
