Principal agricultural commodities export for April-December 2020 stood at around USD28.47 billion and such massive production needs are booming the country’s agricultural mechanization demand and are aiding the growth of tractor sales. In November 2020, the government inaugurated a mega food park in Punjab worth USD14.6 million (INR107.83 crores) that will be spread over 55 acres of land. In October 2020, Agri-lender NABARD (National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development) proposed plans to set up a subsidiary to provide guarantee for loans under agriculture and rural development.

The global tractor market is classified based on application type, by power output, by drive type, and by region. Based on application type, the market is segmented into agriculture and non-agricultural purposes. Tractor used in agriculture sector captured a majority of the market, because of its all-purpose farming use like plowing, tilling, planting, etc. and is expected to witness robust growth in the upcoming years. In terms of engine power output, tractors are distinguished amongst three categories, tractors with rated engines under 40HP, 40HP to 100HP and of above 100HP. Since cost of the tractor is a major factor of the sector’s demand, however, respective power output is also a major concern. Hence, mid-range tractors with rated power output of 40HP to 100HP currently dominate the market and will continue to grow sustainably. Although, with growing needs of heavy mechanization in large scale farming, tractors with heavy output of 100HP and above rated output are continuously adding up sales in the market. On the basis of drive type, market is segmented among two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive. Two-wheel drive tractors being powerful enough for farming & other agricultural activities and providing a benefit of economic affordability, hold a major share of the global tractor market. However, with increasing farmers’ income and agricultural needs of the global population heavy four-wheel drive tractors are increasing the sales of tractors also.
In addition to that, by region, the market is distributed into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, and Middle East & Africa. Majority of mechanized farming demands come from Asian & North American countries, hence organizing themselves as leaders of the mainstream market. India, China & United States of America are the three largest tractor producers and markets in the world, respectively. India and USA are expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.94% and 3.22%, respectively and will help boost the market in the forecasting period, whereas China will recover the historic sales and gradually bring a positive outlook to the global tractor market.
Due to the implementation of lockdown to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, sales of tractors in the end of first quarter and in the starting month of second quarter slightly declined in most of the countries. However, a very strong agricultural & food demand was followed afterwards in the remaining year of 2020, driving the year’s performance to a positive trend. India and China witnessed a massive increase of 10.94% and 53.12% in 2020 as compared to 2019 sales, respectively. Nevertheless, in some of the countries including Japan, France, Italy, United Kingdom, Spain, Belgium, etc. witnessed a degrowth in the year 2020, mainly due to contraction of production units and halt on international trade. However, the market rapidly is seen to be recovering at a good pace and is expected to overcome in the 2021-2022 period. Hence, giving positive outlook to the market eventually.
