the agricultural machinery market

Update 30/09/2019



The agricultural machines gradually appeared at the end of the 19 th century as a result of the agricultural revolution in France (replacement of animal traction by motorized traction to modernize French agriculture). The term characterizes all the machines used in agriculture (tractors, combine harvesters, etc.) that theoretically increase the agricultural productivity .

  • Tractions
  • Soil tillage
  • The planting
  • The harvest
  • The treatment
  • Livestock farming
  • Handling and handling

Closely linked to the agricultural market, the agricultural machinery market depends on farmers' incomes, in other words on the agricultural situation.

While tractor and combine registrations increased sharply in 2015/2016, they have fallen sharply since 2016/2017, when the market was predicting a good period of growth. Since then, the market has struggled to recover its pre-2017 value and rates, despite the efforts of manufacturers.

However, the France remains one of the world leaders in the agricultural machinery market with impressive tractor registrations, although in slight decline. However, imports also continue to increase, particularly from Germany. The market for standard tractors has traditionally been dominated by American brands John Deere and New Holland .
