DUBLIN, Jan. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
The "Comparative SWOT & Strategy Focus - 2017-2021- Global Top 6 Agriculture Equipment Manufacturers - John Deere, CNH, AGCO, CLAAS, SDF Group, Kubota" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.
The report provides a Comprehensive & Insightful Comparative SWOT Framework Analysis and analyzes the Near to Medium Term Strategy Focus for the Global Top 6 Agriculture Equipment Manufacturers amid a difficult and challenging market environment with continuing low crop prices impacting farm incomes and equipment sales across North America and EU markets for the fourth consecutive year in 2017.
The net farm incomes in North America, however, are projected to register a 3.1% growth in 2017; which still is going to be the lowest industry level since 2010 and a drop of almost 50% since the peak of 2013. The situation has been further exacerbated by the ongoing energy market crisis precipitated by the sharp drop in oil prices since 2014 with this impacting the demand for agriculture feedstock based biofuels & crop prices directly.
The industry OEMs have adjusted & adapted well to this altered, new market normal by focusing on restructuring of operations and protecting profitability while investing for future and trying to expand the scope of capabilities under their precision agriculture paradigm through strategic alliances and acquisition of technology companies. The larger industry OEMs have been able to fare better with their diversified business portfolios while pure-play agriculture industry players have found the going to be tough. The market demand levels, however, seem to be stabilizing now which augurs well for the industry.
The long term view of the market, however, remains highly promising given the projections that 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, which is likely to be concentrated around least developed countries of the world over the next three decades. This tremendous growth in demand for agriculture output amid a diminishing natural resources scenario is likely to drive a significant growth in adoption of mechanized farming practices across these nations and a growth in precision farming practices across traditional markets aimed at further enhancing crop yields.
The same has already driven a series of investments from OEMs and others towards development of farming infrastructure, practices & customized farming solutions across regions like Sub-Saharan Africa, which have significant arable land bases in the world but some countries there use less than 10% of the total land area for agriculture.
Against this backdrop, the report provides a comprehensive Comparative SWOT framework analysis on the Global Top 6 Agriculture Equipment manufacturers besides analyzing the overall, near to medium term strategy focus across these OEMs.
