The cereals segment is estimated to dominate the agricultural sprayers amongst the crop types during the forecast period. Cereals is an important segment for the agricultural sprayers market as wheat and corn are grown abundantly in different regions. Corn is the third most widely grown cereal crop in the world, after wheat and rice. Thus, agricultural sprayers experience high demand from cereal producers to increase crop yield.
The trailed segment is estimated to dominate the agricultural sprayers market in terms of value. Although trailed sprayers are more economical for mid-size farms but self-propelled are rising in popularity. With the objective of growing farm efficiency and rising technological advancements, farmers are re-considering their sprayers choices.
The Asia Pacific region dominated the agricultural sprayers market in 2016 and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022, both in terms of value and volume.
India is projected to be the fastest-growing market in the region. The adoption rate of agricultural equipment in India is developing considerably.
