However, poor network connectivity and high capital investment for establishing connected agriculture infrastructure can hinder the growth of the market.

Connectivity management segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Communication through mobile phones is considered very important in enhancing farmers’ access to understand agricultural market situation better. Nowadays, mobile phone and internet have generated an opportunity for the farmers and growers specially to get real-time information about their farms and manage all farming activities. Connected management platforms allow agriculture stakeholders to upkeep the functionality of their various connected devices and gather quality agriculture data.

Integration and implementation services segment is expected to hold the highest market share during the forecast period

This has created opportunities for vendors to provide integration and implementation services to farmers and help them improve their limited knowledge by fulfilling a technological gap. Integration and implementation services help agriculture stakeholders to deploy connected agriculture solutions efficiently on farms and provide insights to farmers to enhance yield for different crops in different seasons and diverse regions.
