Impact of COVID-19 on Europe Agricultural Drones Market: The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has benefited the demand for drones across agriculture sector, but the disrupted supply chain, limited transportation, lower workforce capacity, and restricted trade/import & export had halted the manufacturing of agricultural drones, resulting in lower sales during the initial period of pandemic. Numerous manufacturing sites temporarily faced halted production as a result of local government decisions regarding business closure, and a fraction of supply was unlikely to meet demand.
Several governments across countries imposed preventative measures, such as border controls and closures, travel restrictions, lockdowns or temporary suspension of new immigration to halt the spread of the virus. In addition, the shortage of manual mode working because of unavailability of labourers has increased the demand for agricultural automation technologies, such as drones.
After the unlock phase of COVID-19 restrictions across countries, the scenario created a competitive environment among the agricultural industries. As a result, the agricultural industries began providing more services than their previous records as they are now using both the method i.e. their manual conventional methods, and the latest drone technologies. For instance, According to DJI, a Chinese manufacturer of drones, Spain was the first European country to use agricultural drones to severely limit the COVID-19 impact on agricultural production.
Rising Labor Shortages: The increasing labor shortage caused by factors, such as the aging population, low wages, and immigration disruption in the COVID-19 pandemic, is driving up demand for agricultural UAVs/drones. According to the European government, in 2021, several European countries experienced a severe shortage of migrant labor in their agricultural sectors at a time when their presence was necessary to make sure and maintain the production of spring fruits and vegetables. In addition, according to European Commission, over the last decade, the total labor force participation ratio in agriculture in the Europe fell from 10.8 million to 8.9 million in 2020.
Surging Demand for Global Food Production: With the increase in population across continents, including Europe, agricultural sectors are benefiting from several advantages of using drones/UAVs over traditional practices, including the ability to cover more land areas in less time.
Analysts at Ken Research in their latest publication “Europe Agricultural Drones Market Outlook and Forecast to 2027 – Driven by Rise in Need for Precision Farming, Increasing Labour Shortage, and Increasing Demand for Global Food Production: Ken Research” believe that the Agricultural Drones Market is expected to grow owing to the rising farmers awareness regarding the importance of soil testing and irrigation management, and agronomists’ increasing embrace of high-tech/agri-tech equipment.
