China Haying and Forage Machinery Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.08% over the forecast period (2020-2025).
- China is one of the largest markets for haying and forage machinery. The huge demand for production, with increased reliance on irrigation and agro-inputs, has necessitated the adoption of farm mechanization in the agricultural fields.
- In northern China, high horsepower machinery is used on a large scale, as the farm sizes are generally large, unlike in southern China, where farm sizes are quite small. Large farm forage machinery is expensive, so many farmers outsource their haying work to third-party contractors, who value the performance and profitability of their investment.
Key Market Trends
Rising Demand For Balers In Livestock Feedlots
High demand for hay balers has emerged from the feedlot sector in the region. According to the ITC Trade, China imported a total of 6,854 units of fodder balers in 2018, which increased from 2,110 units in 2016. The beef industry is an important part of livestock and meat production in China. China ranks third in the world for beef production. With the rapid development of the Chinese economy, beef consumption has grown rapidly, and beef consumption has been increasing with rising per capita gross domestic product. Therefore, there is a growing need for feedlots in the country to fulfill the consumption of growing feed which in turn requires machinery to stack the feed. Thus, driving the overall market of haying and forage machinery in the country.
Increasing Adoption of Precision Farming for Quality Harvest
The need for quality harvest with an increased yield and productivity has led to the evolution of several advanced farming technologies in harvesters, such as increased electronic sensing to monitor harvest load, cloud-based processing for yield, and quality maps, among others. There are various advantages of precision agriculture, such as the reduction in fertilizer use, reduction of pollution, optimization of production, etc. The demand for forage harvesters is growing among farmers due to their low crop waste and high harvest efficiency owing to the adoption of precision farming. Combine harvesters help minimize labor costs and time by integrating three different activities, i.e. harvesting threshing and winnowing in a single process. Technological advances in forage harvesters are further boosting the popularity of agricultural harvesters in the country.
The Chinese agricultural haying and forage machinery market is fairly consolidated, with a few companies holding the majority of the shares in the market. In the fast-growing agricultural haying and forage machinery market, companies are not only competing on the basis of product quality or product promotion but are also focused on making other strategic moves, to acquire greater market share and expand their acquired market size. There are several major players in the market such as the AGCO, CLAAS, John Deere, KUNH Group, CNH Industrial and others.
