Aeration is the process of inserting small holes in the ground to provide air circulation, better nutrients, and water for the grass roots. Soil air circulation is letting out stale carbon dioxide and making room for fresh oxygen in the soil. It is necessary to aerate the soil as some of the soil particles are very compact and as a result gets accumulated in a small space. Soil aeration separates these particles which help in blocking the root’s access to nutrients, water, and air. Aerating helps in developing and growing a matured root system. Hard or clay soil needs to be aerated once a year as providing water and air to the roots is difficult in these soils.
Increasing focus on agriculture mechanization is one of the major factors driving the soil aerators market growth. Agricultural mechanization is one of the integral parts of modernization. It is the process of using automation in agricultural machinery to ensure timeliness of farm operations, thereby improving the production quality. Growing importance of soil aeration and rising demand for mechanization of farming operations is expected to boost the demand for soil aerators over the forecast timeline. Improving the seedbed of the soil by fine crushing, destroying weeds and cutting crop residues, conserving moisture and reducing evaporation, and breaking soil lumps improves the soil condition for germination and seeding. Therefore, demand for soil aerators is anticipated to witness steady growth from 2018 to 2026.
However, the lack of awareness regarding soil aerators and fragmented and small land holdings will restrain the usage of heavy farm equipment, thereby restraining the industry over the forecast period. The extensive availability of substitutes in lawn and turf care operations is a major challenge for manufacturers, thereby negatively affecting the industry growth.
The global soil aerators market is segmented on the basis of equipment into primary tillage equipment, secondary tillage equipment, soil aerating equipment, and weeding equipment. The secondary tillage market dominates the soil aerators market as demand for this equipment originates primarily from agricultural industry. Various types of secondary tillage equipment such as cultivators, harrows, and rollers & pulverizes are used to de-compact soil efficiently in shorter time.
Based on the mechanism, the soil aerators market is classified into mechanical and pneumatic. Depending on the mode of operation, the soil aerators market is segmented into mounted, trailed, and others. The mounted segment is anticipated to have highest CAGR due to various benefits such as low turnaround time and higher accuracy. Agriculture and non-agriculture industries are the end-users of the soil aerators market. The rapid increase in demand for food owing to growing population and urbanization coupled with shrinking arable land is expected to drive the growth of the agriculture segment during the forecast timeframe.
The North America region is expected to account for majority of the soil aerators market share in 2017 and is expected to continue the same over the forecast timeline. The growth in this region is attributed to presence of prominent vendors who aim to improve their product portfolio in the soil aerators market. Rising professional landscaping services in countries such as the U.S. and Canada is anticipated to drive the demand for soil aerators over the forecast timeline.
The Asia Pacific region is expected to witness highest CAGR from 2018 to 2026 due to increasing productivity requirements. Increasing urbanization has increased the demand for consumption of food and other related products, thereby supporting the agricultural industry growth. Furthermore, strong government support through subsidies and overgrazing by livestock has fuelled the modernization of agriculture.
The global soil aerators market is moderately concentrated with presence of numerous international and regional companies that offer best soil aerators for agriculture, industrial, and residential sectors. Soil aerator manufacturers are focusing on adding differentiating features to their equipment to achieve product differentiation, thereby gaining market share. Some of the major industry participants are Deere & Company, Alstrong, Husqvarna Group, and Great Plains Manufacturing.
