Market Overview:

The global forage harvester market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for forage harvesters from feed mills, farms, and others applications across the globe. Additionally, factors such as technological advancements in forage harvesting equipment and rising awareness about the benefits of using forage harvesters are also contributing to the growth of this market. On the basis of type, pull-type forage harvesters are expected to dominate the global market during the forecast period owing to their low cost and easy operability. However, self-propelled forage harvesters are projected to witness higher growth rates due their ability to cover large areas in a short time span and high efficiency levels.

Global Forage Harvester Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A forage harvester, or simply a harvester, is a farming machine that chops and collects crop residue (such as hay, straw, or silage) into bales or containers.

Pull-Type Forage Harvester:

The pull-type forage harvester is a mechanical device used to collect and cut the crop residues, which are normally left after harvesting. It is also known as residue harvester or residual feeder. The main function of this equipment is to provide high quality and quantity of food at minimum cost with less labor involvement. This equipment can be used in both small and large farms for various applications such as weed control, threshing, seeding & planting crops etc.

Self-Propelled Forage Harvester:

Self-propelled forage harvester is a device that cuts and collects the crop residues, which are normally cut by the farm tractor. It is mainly used to harvest fodder or animal feed. The self-propelled forage harvesters are equipped with sickle bar and scythe like blades attached to a horizontal shaft. The scythe like blade moves forward and backward depending upon the direction of rotation of the wheels at either end of its horizontal shaft.

Application Insights:

The other application segment includes dairy farms, ranches and pastures, and mixed farming. The others segment dominated the global forage harvester market in 2017 due to high demand from countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Argentina, South Africa. These countries have a large area of open pastureland that is suitable for growing crops like wheat or maize on which cows can graze.

In regions where winters are cold and summers are hot (such as Europe), it is better to keep livestock during the summer months so that they may gain weight before winter sets in again.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to witness a considerable growth rate of 4.6% over the forecast period, owing to increasing demand for technologically advanced agricultural equipment and favorable government initiatives pertaining to modern agriculture practices in countries such as Canada and U.S. For instance, In 2015, The Government of Canada announced a contribution of USD X million towards the development of an innovative harvesting machine that would reduce labor costs by 50%.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be one of the fastest-growing regional markets from 2018 to 2030 due its large livestock population and rising disposable income among farmers especially in developing economies such as India and China.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for forage harvesters from the agriculture sector as it helps in harvesting fodder crops quickly and efficiently.
  • Growing popularity of forage harvesters among small-scale farmers as it helps them to reduce the cost of harvesting fodder crops.
  • Rising adoption of forage harvesters by dairy farms as they help in efficient collection and storage of fodder crops, which can be used to feed livestock animals.
  • Technological advancements in forage harvester designs and features that are helping to improve their efficiency and performance across different applications segments.
