AGRICULTURE

AgroDomestic production of food grains is expected to increase more than 1/3rd in the next few years, basis the continued high local demand. The challenges of labour shortage, limited land resources and need for higher ROIs will speed up the introduction of mechanization and new technologies in the industry.

The shift towards mechanization is already discernible with India’s farm mechanization rate now at 40%, while its share of population engaged in agriculture is 55%. The Agri Equipment market is estimated at INR 4,500 Bn and expected to grow at a CAGR of 8–10%.
