Agricultural Tractor Market Growth Is Driven By Increasing Demand In Emerging Economies


Agricultural tractors are self-propelled vehicles that provide power and traction to mechanize agricultural tasks such as plowing, disking, harrowing and more. They are equipped with power take-off systems and three-point hitch for operating agricultural implements. Tractors allow farmers to save time and labor costs by completing farm work efficiently. Key components of tractors include engine, transmission, rear axle, power take-off system, hydraulic lift and hitch. Most modern tractors offer advanced features such as GPS, auto steering and variable flow hydraulics. The global agricultural tractor market is driven by substantial mechanization of agriculture across developing regions to cater to growing global food demand.

The global Agricultural Tractor Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 87.16 Bn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.2% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends: One of the major trends in the agricultural tractor market is the growing adoption of autonomous or driverless tractors. Leading tractor manufacturers are developing autonomous tractors equipped with advanced technologies such as GPS, auto guidance systems, collision detection and more. For instance, John Deere launched autonomous 8R tractor in 2018 capable of performing agricultural tasks without human intervention. Autonomous tractors enables farmers to maximize productivity while reducing labor costs substantially. The development of technologies like artificial intelligence, computer vision, machine learning will further drive the autonomous agricultural equipment market during the forecast period.
