Global Farm Management Software Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 – 2035

The global farm management software market size is estimated to reach ~USD 24.24 Billion by the end of 2035 by growing at a CAGR of ~17.70% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. In addition to this, in the year 2022, the market size of farm management software was ~USD 3.43 Billion. The growth of the market can be attributed to growing yield losses. With absent crop protection, many important food crops could have yield losses of up to about 69%. Weeds are the main cause of yield losses, accounting for approximately 29% of losses, followed by animal pests and diseases, which cause losses of about 22% and 16%, respectively. Pests cost the global economy a total of about USD 289 billion annually by causing approximately 19-40% of yield losses worldwide. Hence, farm management software aids farmers and growers in making agronomic choices that reduce yield losses under challenging circumstances and enhance yield amounts and quality under ideal circumstances.

Farm management software is ideally suited to assisting farmers and growers in managing their agronomic practices as a result of data management's capacity to gather, record, and synthesize large amounts of information from numerous sources (such as weather stations, soil monitors, images from satellites and drones, local, regional, and federal agricultural databases, and more). Moreover, growing demand for food is also estimated to boost need to adopt farm management software. The globe would need to feed an additional of about 2 billion people by 2030, with approximately 89% of them residing in developing nations; and the world would need to increase food output by about 59-70% by 2050 to feed more than nine billion people.

Global Farm Management Software Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Growing Population - In mid-November 2022, there were 8.0 billion people on the planet, up from 2.5 billion in 1950, and 1 billion since 2010 and 2 billion since 1998. The population of the world is projected to rise by almost 2 billion people over the course of the next 30 years, from the present 8 billion to 9.7 billion in 2050, with a potential peak of roughly 10.4 billion in the middle of the 1980s. Hence, with the growing population the demand for food is also expected to increase. Therefore, in order to boost the production of agriculture also reducing the wastage of food the demand for farm management software is anticipated to increase.

  • Rise in Adoption of Drones by Farmers - In Brazil, about 1,399 drones were registered legally for agricultural use as of August 2019. In the state of Sao Paulo, drone registrations made up more than one third. With each state having more than 149 drones, Minas Gerais and Paraná were among the states with the greatest number of registered agricultural drones. The Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) is specialized imaging equipment that is mounted on the drones. The NDVI provides a thorough color breakdown of the plant's health. In order to address any issues swiftly enough to save the plant, this aids farmers in keeping tabs on crops as they develop. Hence, the adoption of drones is high.

  • Surge in Government Initiatives to Adopt Modern Technologies - On August 22, 2022, it was announced that research and development projects would receive funding through the Farming Innovation Programme. These projects included artificial intelligence technology to optimise pig welfare, agri-robots to help speed up vegetable harvests, and automation to increase fruit crop yields. About USD 335 million Agricultural Innovation Project of the UK Government included about USD 19 million investment that was estimated to support innovation in horticulture and agriculture in 2022.

  • Growth in Adoption of Agtech - Almost 60 percent of farmers in Europe and North America already use or intend to use one or more agtech products in the next two years, leading the world in agtech adoption.

  • Upsurge in Agricultural Land Area- In 2020, there were about five billion hectares of agricultural land worldwide, or 38% of the earth's surface.  


  • Require High Capital Investment - The majority of farmers believe that farm management systems are too expensive and that the price of the necessary hardware, software, and integration services is too high. The cost of GPS-enabled navigation and mapping devices is substantial, and the initial outlay for integrating guidance and sensing equipment with farm management databases and software is also significant. This limiting issue has a significant effect in developing economies such as China, Japan, and India where there are many marginal farmers and dispersed farmlands. Since these software solutions are complicated to use, farmers would pay extra for the integration of the software with the hardware equipment as well as for further advice. So, it is anticipated that the high cost of farm management equipment and software would impede the market's expansion.
  • Presence of Fragmented Farms
  • Lack of Knowledge Among Farmers

Global Farm Management Software Market Segmentation

The global farm management software market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into precision farming, livestock monitoring, smart greenhouse, and aquaculture. Out of which, the precision farming segment is anticipated to garner the highest revenue by the end of 2035. The growth of the segment can be attributed to growing adoption of precision farming. Larger farms in the US are using precision agriculture more frequently and implementing strategies despite technological obstacles. In the US, about 14–40% of big farms in 2022 used guidance systems, variable-rate technology, or another type of precision technology. However, only a small percentage of America's small farms, which account for more than 85% of all American farms, have embraced precision agriculture. Hence, government are encouraging farmers to adopt precision farming which would further boost the market growth. The idea of precision agriculture makes it feasible to maximize crop growth and health, apply the appropriate amount of inputs where they are required, and increase yield and ROI. Moreover, this method lowers input usage and related costs. Reducing input utilization lowers pollution, agricultural waste, and carbon emissions. Hence, soil fertility is unaffected. Therefore, the preference for precision farming is growing.
