Internet of Things (IoT) is a hugely exciting phenomenon and has the potential to create a world where everything is connected via internet. Internet of Things in agriculture incorporates internet based advanced agriculture technologies and solutions. IoT is anticipated to have a significant role in enhancing agricultural productivity. IoT provides real-time field monitoring through real-time data collection and data analysis. IoT controller mechanism deployment in agriculture supports increase in operational efficiency, yield enhancement, and agriculture wastage minimization. IoT in agriculture is applicable for precision farming to surmount natural calamities, for instance, adversely changing uncertain climate and inadequate irrigation among others.
Increasing food safety importance and demand across the world is augmented the global IoT in agriculture market. For instance, in the span of 2014 – 2016, according to estimates of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, nearly 795 million people were chronically undernourished, that is, one in nine people are suffering from chronic undernourishment. Moreover, uncertainty in climate change is driving the need for IoT in agriculture market. Climate change significantly affects agriculture production. For instance, adversely affected climate change in the world’s breadbasket the Brazilian Mato Grosso, led to a fall in soybean production.
Similarly, extreme heat across the U.S. and Eastern Australia has resulted in declining yield production. The need for IoT integration in agriculture is anticipated to show significant rise to surmount these issues, thus driving the IoT in agriculture market globally. Furthermore, need to monitor the health and performance of livestock is driving IoT in agriculture market. However, lack of connecting services for the agriculture market is restraining the growth of the market. Proliferation of internet and smartphones in the current market is anticipated to create significant growth opportunities for IoT in agriculture market globally. Furthermore, cooperation of private, state-owned, and government enterprises with agro processing and food manufacturers are expected to create extensive opportunities for IoT in the agriculture market across the world. Growing trend of rapid innovations and technological advancement in agriculture industry is driving the growth of IoT in agriculture market across the world. A similar trend is expected to be seen during the forecast period.
