  • With an increased worldwide demand for improved qualities of foods and grains, the shift to digital, smart, and data-driven equipment in the agriculture sector brings significant sales and financing opportunities. The shift is more prominent in regions such as Europe and North America.
  • Furthermore, agriculture sensors have a moderate to high impact on pest detection and crop scouting operations through timely and efficient detection of pests and diseases at the plant level.

Impact of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on almost all major industries throughout the world, including the agricultural industry. Globally nations had lockdowns imposed because of which the supply chain also got disrupted, resulting in a shortage of equipment and other inputs required for the agriculture sector. This has brought the companies’ attention to the use of agriculture sensors, which can lead to a boost in the improvement of yield quality and quantity in the agriculture sector. In the agriculture sector, the adoption of agriculture sensors is expected to increase due to developed information technology (IT) infrastructure and networks as well as improved farm mechanization. Thus, COVID-19 has positively impacted the agriculture sensors market in the long run due to disrupted supply chains and labor shortages.

Impact of Ukraine-Russia Tensions

Owing to the growing tensions between the two countries, farmers in Ukraine and Russia are not able to properly approach and utilize agriculture sensors. The reason being the limitations on imports and exports and border restrictions. The tensions have severely impacted the Ukraine-based agriculture sensor manufacturing companies and farmers due to the uncertainties in farming and harvesting. Supply chain disruptions have affected the logistics and, thus, the exports of the crops, impacting the income levels of the farmers. This is another factor hindering the adoption of agriculture sensors in Ukraine.
