South Africa Agriculture Tractors Market Analysis, Drivers, Restraints & Opportunities During the Forecast Period, 2019-2024 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

January 23, 2020 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 23, 2020--

The “South Africa Agriculture Tractors Market-Size, Trends, Competitive Analysis and Forecasts (2019-2024)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The agriculture tractor market in South Africa was worth USD 1.3 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.3% during 2019-2024.

Agriculture is a promoter for economic growth in South Africa and contributes 2.5% towards the GDP. The agriculture sector is at a significant intersection, facing numerous challenges such as depleted soils and over-extracted & polluted water reserves. The agriculture sector is moderately mechanized in Africa. Water scarcity resulting from prolonged drought and declining rainfall is pushing for mechanization in the agriculture sector. Global market pressure for low carbon, environmentally friendly agriculture products is an increasingly significant factor for the adoption of mechanization.

Drivers

Seasonal rural labor shortages due to urban migration is the major driving factor for the adoption of mechanization in agriculture, pushing for more utilization of agriculture tractors. Within this evolving context there has been strong advocacy for agricultural machinery appropriate for farmers’ small fields and resource base, and to enhance land productivity and encourage sustained agricultural intensification.

Restraints

Less spread of mechanized agriculture systems is a major restraint to the growth of the agriculture tractor market. Other factors limiting the adoption of agriculture tractors are poor road networks, lack of information and extension services and poor market infrastructure. Also, increasing vulnerability due to climate change is restricting the flow of investments into the agriculture machinery. Uncertainty due to policy shifts focused on land issues is another factor restricting the investments in agriculture and agriculture machinery.

Opportunity

There is a huge opportunity for tractor manufacturers to expand in the South African market. There is a strong push for scale-appropriate tractors or tractors suitable for small & medium landholdings. This category can help the manufacturers to attract a wider customer base as these tractors are economical options and increase returns to land & labor.
