Market Dynamics

Market Drivers:

High Cost of Agriculture Equipment

Agriculture equipment is among the primary requirements for all agricultural activities. Since the 2000s, the move toward precision farming and digitization in the agricultural industry has resulted in inflation in agricultural equipment prices. This has resulted in farmers needing help to purchase necessary equipment for their agricultural activities, leading to decreased agricultural production.

Small and medium-scale growers with less land availability face the significant impacts of inflation in equipment prices. The annual production and revenue generated by these growers leave them unable to afford new farm equipment. According to a study by the University of Illinois Department of Agricultural and Consumer Economics, most machinery costs increased by 7-9% between 2017 and 2019. Thus, farm equipment rental service provides an excellent opportunity for growers to use the latest farm equipment in their field without paying the product's total price. This allows a farmer can use a product as required in the field, thereby driving market growth.

Rising Global Food Demand

Global food demand is one of the major concerns for the entire agricultural industry. The global population has increased significantly since the 2000s and is expected to reach 9.72 billion by 2050. Farm productivity must be increased to cater to the growing population and food demand. Farm equipment rental service is a huge solution to this problem. Due to the high cost and unavailability of equipment, farmers cannot increase their agricultural productivity.

In addition, farmers are not able to maximize output, making it challenging to meet the needs of an expanding population. Rental farm equipment and subsidies on farm equipment offered by the government have been essential in increasing agricultural production. This service provides the farmers with vital necessities in the field. Therefore, rising global food demand and awareness of the sudden need for increasing agricultural production has been a strong driver for the growth of the global market.

Market Restraint:

High Rental Costs and Interest Rates

Rental farm equipment has proved to be a great solution to the long-standing problems of the high cost of farm equipment. Through the availability of farm equipment on a rental and lease basis, farmers have been able to use the necessary farm equipment in the field. This has also helped in increasing agricultural productivity. The availability of rental farm equipment has greatly helped small and medium-scale farmers, though the high rental costs for this equipment are still a significant issue for small-scale growers.

For instance, the Kubota M6-141 tractor manufactured by Kubota Corporation is rented out to the farmers on a weekly charge ranging from USD 2,200 to USD 3,100. Also, fuel prices for the equipment are not included in the rental cost. Thus, even though farm farm equipment i equipment is available to the grower on a rental basis, it is still tricky for small-scale growers to afford it weekly. The market has vast potential in the regions with small and medium-scale farmers, but the growth could be improved because of the high rental costs of equipment.

Market Opportunities:

Rising Adoption of Modern Agricultural Equipment

Growth among farm equipment manufacturers is a massive opportunity for the farm equipment rental market. Farm equipment availability on a rental basis has benefited the development of the overall agricultural industry. The agriculture industry is one of the industries wherein the equipment is only replaced for a short period. For instance, two-wheel and four-wheel farm tractors are usually replaced after ten years. As a result, equipment with low efficiency and productivity is used in the field for longer durations. This affects the productivity of the field as with wear and tear, and the equipment loses its efficiency.

Rental farm equipment makes new and underutilized agricultural equipment available to farmers, increasing the utilization of cutting-edge technology in the field. This would also raise awareness of the specifications of the new farm equipment and the benefits that this equipment entails over the previously used equipment. The field's overall productivity and efficiency will also increase, leading to better production and revenue generation for the farmers. Thus, the rental farm equipment market can increase the adoption of modern farm equipment in the industry, thereby increasing agricultural productivity.
