Robots are gaining traction in the agriculture sector due to increase in adoption of advanced technologies that will provide farmers with high precision tools and will assist them in effective farming of crops and vegetables. Several tools and technologies were introduced in the market for daily farming activities such as planting, fertilizing, harvesting, and weeding. One of the latest robotic technologies introduced in the agriculture industry is autonomous vegetable weeding robots. These weeding robots assist farmers in killing the weeds and reduce the usage of herbicides that will allow larger plants to grow. Weeds are the unwanted plants that have an adverse effect on desired vegetation and create an issue in farming. Weeds create huge loss as compared to other agricultural pest category. Therefore, in order to overcome this loss, many agriculture robotics manufacturers have introduced autonomous vegetable weeding robots that are either electrically powered or solar powered. Moreover, these vegetable weeding robots help farmers in removing different types of weeds that are seen in vegetable farms. These agricultural robots are high technology tools that aim at increasing the productivity without harming the environment.

Increasing demand for agricultural robots for large scale farming is one of the major factor driving growth of the global autonomous vegetable weeding robots market

Autonomous vegetable weeding robots come with various sensing or detection technologies such as remote sensing, machine vision, and spectral analysis. The adoption of these sensing technologies are expected to boost growth of the global autonomous vegetable weeding robots market during the forecast period. Several factors are influencing growth of the market such as increasing demand for food production globally and rising need for precision agriculture. According to United Nations studies, the food production should be doubled by 2050 due to the increase in global population from 7.3 billion in 2015 to 9.7 Billion by 2050. The shortage of labors is one of the major factors driving the demand for autonomous vegetable weeding robots.

However, the autonomous vegetable weeding robots that are electrically powered have shorter battery life of around 4-6 hours on one charge, which can hamper growth of the global autonomous vegetable weeding robots.
