Report Highlights

Global Agriculture Technology-as-a-Service Market to Reach $3,438.6 Million by 2027.

Market Segmentation:

Segmentation 1: by Application

  • Yield Mapping and Monitoring
  • Soil Management and Testing
  • Crop Health Monitoring
  • Irrigation
  • Others

Crop health monitoring is expected to generate the highest revenue in the ATaaS market due to its importance in ensuring the overall health and productivity of crops. With ATaaS, farmers can monitor the health of their crops in real-time and make informed decisions about their management practices. This results in increased crop yield and profitability. Advanced sensors and technologies like remote sensing, drones, and precision agriculture are integrated into ATaaS solutions for accurate crop monitoring. This helps in the early detection of potential problems like disease, pest infestations, and soil degradation, leading to proactive management and timely intervention. The increasing adoption of ATaaS in the agricultural sector will drive the growth of the crop health monitoring segment, thereby generating the highest revenue in the ATaaS market.

Segmentation 2: by Service Type

  • Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)
  • Equipment-as-a-Service (EaaS)

Software-as-a-service (SaaS) is projected to drive the growth of the agriculture technology-as-a-service (ATaaS) market due to its advantages, such as ease of deployment, low cost, and user-friendly interfaces. SaaS platforms allow farmers to access technology-driven agriculture solutions and services remotely, reducing the need for large capital expenditures. It is expected that SaaS-based ATaaS will gain traction as cloud computing and IoT technologies become more popular, thereby driving the market's growth.

Segmentation 3: by Pricing

  • Subscription
  • Pay-Per-Use

In the ATaaS market, subscription pricing models have become increasingly popular among farmers due to their cost-effectiveness and flexibility. Farmers can subscribe to these services on a monthly or annual basis and receive regular software updates and technical support. This eliminates the need for large upfront investments in equipment and technology, allowing farmers to better manage their costs and stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in the industry. Additionally, subscription models provide the ability to scale up or down based on their needs and production goals, offering greater flexibility and cost savings compared to traditional pay-per-use models.

Segmentation 4: by Region

  • North America - U.S., Canada, and Mexico
  • Europe - Germany, Turkey, Ukraine, France, Greece, The Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, and Rest-of-Europe
  • China
  • U.K.
  • Asia-Pacific - India, Japan, Australia, and Rest-of-Asia-Pacific
  • South America - Brazil, Argentina, and Rest-of-South America
  • Middle East and Africa - Israel, South Africa, and Rest-of-Middle East and Africa

North America generated the highest revenue of over $547.0 million in 2021 and is expected to remain the largest region by 2027. A number of factors are expected to contribute to North America's lead in ATaaS, including the presence of major players in the agriculture sector, strong government support, and a high adoption rate of advanced technologies such as VRT, UAVs, and robots. Additionally, the region has a large number of well-established agribusinesses and farmers looking for innovative and cost-effective ways to improve their operations. The region also has a well-developed infrastructure and a high level of awareness about the benefits of ATaaS, which is further driving the market growth.

Recent Developments in Global Agriculture Technology-as-a-Service (ATaaS) Market

  • In November 2022, a new generation of monitoring robots called Tom v4 was launched by Small Robot Company. The commercialization of this product to both farmers and corporations is a major milestone. With a ground sample distance of 0.28mm per pixel, Tom v4 is one of the highest-resolution crop-scanning technologies. As a result, Tom can detect early signs of disease outbreaks and see individual water droplets on leaves.
  • In October 2021, Kubota and Topcon signed a collaborative research agreement in smart agriculture. The companies will work together to innovate for future commercialization through collaborative research in smart agriculture, bringing together the technologies and know-how developed by each company.
  • In October 2021, Naïo Technologies announced plans to expand internationally in the agricultural robotics market. With the aim of consolidating its worldwide growth and launching a new robot-as-a-service (RaaS) model, the company is moving beyond its technology innovation context.
  • In August 2021, Deere & Company acquired Bear Flag Robotics, an agriculture technology startup based in Silicon Valley. Bear Flag's technology enables a machine to perform autonomously. Bear Flag's technology complements Deere's technology initiatives and goals to help farmers achieve the best possible outcomes and solve meaningful challenges through advanced technology, including autonomy.

  • Agricultural technology-as-a-service (ATaaS) helps farmers streamline their operations and increase efficiency by automating tasks such as crop monitoring, soil analysis, and resource management. This can result in improved yields and lower costs.
  • ATaaS provides farmers with detailed and real-time information about their crops, enabling them to make informed decisions about planting, fertilizing, and pest control. This results in a more precise and targeted application of resources, leading to higher yields and a reduction in waste.

Impact of COVID-19

The pandemic has resulted in disrupting the supply chain, leading to delays in product delivery and installation. Additionally, the pandemic has also resulted in reduced consumer spending and a slowdown in economic activity, impacting the demand for ATaaS solutions.

However, the pandemic has also accelerated the adoption of digital technologies in the agricultural sector, including ATaaS. With social distancing measures in place, farmers have had to rely more on digital solutions for farm management, leading to an increase in the demand for ATaaS solutions.
