China agriculture equipment market is valued at around US$ 28 Billion in 2018 and is expected to reach nearly US$ 50 Billion by 2025. China has always attached great importance to agriculture, rural areas and farmers, as agriculture is the primary industry of the national economy. In 2004, China entered a new era in its approach to agricultural policy, as it began to subsidize rather than tax agriculture. As a result, since 2004, China’s agricultural market has maintained its growth momentum both for production and sale volume. The government has reiterated its commitment to support agriculture and increase fund allocation for development of the rural economy. This has led to a continuous rise in the income level of farmers, increasing their ability to buy agriculture equipment.
China’s agricultural equipment industry is characterized by a large number of mostly unspecialized manufacturers producing low technology machinery. The country has over 2,500 agricultural equipment manufacturers, mainly concentrated in Shandong, Henan, Jiangsu, Liaoning, and Zhejiang provinces, but due to the lack of resources like human capital, funding and the infrastructure necessary to develop sophisticated farming machines, China still relies heavily on foreign imports for high-tech farming machinery. According to the China Agricultural Machinery Distribution Association (CAMDA), the top five domestic manufacturers accounted for less than 25 percent of the market.
- China’s small tractor sales has been continuously declining since 2011.
- The agricultural mechanization rate of China exceeded 66% in 2017 and is expected to surpass 70% at the end of the “13th Five-Year Plan” period.
- The central government has spent more than 200 Billion Yuan (US$ 29 Billion) on farm equipment subsidies.
- Starting 2019, all agricultural machinery in China will be eligible for government subsidies regardless of country of origin.
China Agriculture Equipment Market - Segment Analysis
