Market Overview:

The Indian agricultural implements market size reached US$ 11.7 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 17.2 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 6.7% during 2023-2028.

Agricultural implements consist of a wide range of manual and mechanical tools such as threshers, cultivators, over plows, seed drills, chaff cutter machines, axes, etc. They help in reducing labor and improving the efficiency of agricultural activities. India has achieved considerable progress in the field of agricultural implements over the past decades. At the time of Independence, Indian farmers mostly used animal operated implements (such as bullock-drawn plows and wooden planks) and hand tools (including spades, pick axes, crowbars, sickles and choppers) for pulverization, compaction and smoothening of the soil. Later, the Green Revolution brought about large-scale farm mechanization which encouraged a significant number of farmers to opt for modern agricultural implements including combine harvesters, rice trans-planters, power tillers, threshers, tractors, pumping sets, etc.

Indian Agricultural Implements Market

In India, the growing incomes of the farmers have boosted the demand for farm implements. In addition, acute shortage of skilled labor for agricultural activities has further led to the growing demand for agricultural equipment. Moreover, the attractive subsidies provided by the Central and State governments have also encouraged farmers to purchase modern agricultural implements.

Indian Agricultural Implements Market Drivers:

  • Substitute for manual labor: One of the biggest advantages of agriculture implements is that they can replace manual labour. Although, India represents amongst the largest countries for man power in the world, all sectors of the economy have been affected by the scarcity of labour. This impact is currently being felt more in the agricultural sector compared to other sectors. Labour constitute a vital input in agricultural production, however, with rising urbanisation and better oppurtunities, they are migrating from rural to urban parts of the country. This is creating a major imbalance between labour demand and supply. The migration from villages to cities is also leading to a lot of proxy farmers taking care of multiple plots of land. As a result, implements are expected to play a major role in agriculture productivity in the coming years.
  • High Productivity and efficiency: Use of agricultural implements increase production, efficiency and per man productivity. Mechanization increases the yield of land per unit of area and also resulting in lower cost of work, resulting in better use of land and hence increasing farm income. Agricultural implements are expected to increase yields by 25-30% in states with a low level of mechanisation, and by up to 10% in states that are already highly mechanised.
  • Long Terms Cost Savings: Although buying agricultural implements involve a high initial capital expenditure. Over a longer period of time, they prove to be more cost effective compared to manual labour and work animals. For instance, in actual operation, there are negligible costs when machines remain idle, on the other hand, the cost of maintenance of draught animals remains the same irrespective if they are working or are idle. This is because animals need to be fed whether they are doing work or not.
  • Improvements in Agriculture Techniques: The use of agricultural implements also provides benefits during irrigation, land reclamation and the prevention of soil erosion. For example, ploughing by a tractor reclaims more land and therefore extends the cultivated area as it smoothens hillocks, fills in depressions and gullies and eradicate deeps-rooted weeds. It also prevents soil erosion.
  • Government Support: Another major driver of the agriculture implements industry is the fact that it represents a major focus area for the government. Agriculture remains a primary means of livelihood for more than 50% of the country’s total population and, as a result, it represents an important vote bank for any government that wants to retain power. The government of India is also providing subsidies to local farmers on water, electricity, agricultural machinery, agrochemicals, hybrid seeds, etc. It has also exempted agriculture income under the Indian Income Tax Act, meaning income earned from agricultural operations is not taxed. In addition, both state and central government often waive off loans given to the farmers.
  • Large Agricultural Economy: India is the second-largest populated country accounting for around 18% of the total world population. Catalysed by a rising population, the requirement for various agricultural products has also increased significantly. This rise has stimulated the farmers to adopt enhanced technologies and increase the level of mechanization in their agricultural practices resulting in an increasing demand of agricultural implements and methods in sectors such as farming, dairy, fisheries, livestock, etc. Moreover, more than 50% of India’s population is dependent on agricultural products which is further promoting the growth of the market.
  • Increase in custom hiring of implements: The high capital cost of agriculture implements may often restrain many small-scale farmers to buy them. Moreover, farmers with small land holdings do not find it cost effective to invest into their own agricultural implements. This has resulted into a large market for the custom hiring of implements where implements can be rented out to farmers for a specific time and cost.
