Government Support for Agricultural Machinery and Increasing Farmer Affordability to Drive Market Growth
The market for agricultural machinery in Egypt achieved a CAGR of 5.9% in terms of revenue during the period 2011-2016. The market for agricultural machinery in Egypt has been driven by the revenues generated from the sale of four wheel tractors in the country. As majority of farmers utilize tractors for land preparation, pre-harvest mechanization rate is still higher in comparison to post-harvest mechanization rate.
Majority of demand for agricultural machinery comes from large agricultural cooperatives, companies with mega farms and the Egyptian government that controls state farms. Most farmers with small land holding have preferred to use labor as a result of its cheap availability in addition to renting out small agricultural machinery for farm operations in order to ensure positive return on investment. Central and South Egypt has continued to witness high productivity from farm operations and higher mechanization rate due to the presence of large private and state owner farms. Conversely, North Egypt is dominated by fragmented land holdings and small farmers producing crops for household consumption.
“According to Research Analyst at Ken Research, a major thrust area where none of the manufacturers of agricultural machinery have focused on is the rental/ custom hiring market in Egypt. Manufacturers should also look to introduce small agricultural machinery that meets the budget and requirements of farmers. In addition, new and existing players should look to set up their manufacturing facility within the domestic territory and expand their dealer network by setting up representative offices in close proximity to agricultural areas.”
