Precision Viticulture Market Introduction
Precision viticulture or agriculture has become a popular topic in the recent past, the term is used to describe scientific techniques and solutions used by wineries to monitor and manage large vineyard areas. These end users are increasingly deploying connected devices and solutions to achieve an enhanced quality of crops both in terms of inter-season and spatial variability within vineyards. Further, advanced agriculture technologies help wineries to maximize grape yield, improve productivity and performance while reducing environmental impacts. Major technologies used by winegrowers include global positioning systems (GPS), geographic information systems (GIS), meteorological and environmental sensors, and remote sensing devices to monitor and respond to variability.
With the introduction of favourable government regulation and monetary support to farmers demand precision viticulture technologies is rising among farmers across the globe. This is expected to fuel the growth of the precision viticulture market during the forecast period. Also, growing demand for high quality grapes, rising focus of farmers to increase return on investment, and achieving maximum production capacity and profitability is increasing the adoption of precision viticulture solutions and services at a rapid pace. Additionally, rising investment on unmanned aerial drones and vehicles is responsible for an increase in precision viticulture market growth & size. In contrast, lack of skilled labour, high initial investment, and lack of awareness among farmers in developing and underdeveloped countries are anticipated to hamper the growth of the global precision viticulture market to a certain extent. Also, the proliferation of smartphones and their integration with connected agricultural devices and solutions is presenting huge opportunities for major vendors operating in the global precision viticulture industry.
