The Global Agriculture Industry poised for Strong, long-term Growth driven by Strong Fundamentals & Demand Drivers while Near-Term Pressures & Challenges Persist
The Global Agriculture industry is driven by robust fundamentals & strong, long-term demand & growth drivers linked directly to a rapidly growing global population besides the cyclical demand from the bio-fuel industry for agriculture sources based feedstock linked directly to prevailing crude oil prices & policy framework. The global agricultural output is required to double itself by 2050 as against the present level, in order, to match the rate of global population growth, as per projections, amid diminishing natural resources, thus, highlighting & underscoring the imminent & urgent need for tremendously enhancing efficiency & productivity through precision farming, especially, across developing nations & least developed countries where the population explosion is actually projected to take place.
The current & near term view of the industry is, however, dominated by continued, significant pressures on farm incomes & profitability emanating from an altered supply side economics with record crop production across key geographic regions driving down crop prices & impacting farm incomes directly and significantly which is likely to continue to have a significant bearing on agriculture machinery sales over near term. Further, the current downturn in global energy markets with sustained downward trend in global crude oil prices has impacted the demand as well as production of agriculture feedstock based biofuels severely across North America & Western Europe, thereby, further compounding the complexity of the challenges for the industry, especially, with a significant increase in corn planting acreages across these markets over the recent years. Additionally, continued economic contraction in Brazil for the consecutive three quarters in 2015 & slowdown in China are adding further to the woes. The multitude of pressures on top line growth have necessitated & rendered competitiveness as crucial to protecting profitability across industry OEMs which have been working towards optimizing & aligning their production output, cost base & industrial footprint with emerging demand scenario.
Overall, agriculture output growth over medium term across North America, Europe & Asia is likely to be driven, primarily, by efforts aimed at improving crop yield & productivity. Additionally, the Chinese Government’s strong focus & push for development of Chinese rural agriculture sector over the next decade are likely to generate potential growth opportunities for regional as well as global OEMs with deep roots in China. Also, growing animal protein consumption trend across developing nations driven by rise in disposable incomes & growing urbanization is likely to drive growth for livestock, poultry & dairy sectors across these markets.
