Harvesting robots are projected to have the fastest growth among hardware in the smart harvest market during the forecast period.
Harvesting is one of the important phases of farming and requires great amount of bending and lifting through manual labor. Additionally, labor shortage affects the overall yield output. To cater to this issue, manufacturers have introduced autonomous harvesting robots that harvests fruits and vegetables with little or no human intervention. Although majority of the manufacturers have harvesting robots in the testing phase and are designed to harvest limited fruits and vegetables, however, these smart harvest robots are expected to launch in the market for sales during the forecast period, with enhanced functionalities. With increasing labor shortage and need to reduce labor costs, the demand for smart harvesting robots is projected to be high and witness highest growth during the forecast period.

By site of operation, indoor segment is estimated to dominate the smart harvest market in 2018.
The indoor segment includes container farming and vertical farming, which requires a controlled environment. The systems are reliant on multiple sensors installed throughout to understand the surroundings and navigate across the work area. High-resolution multi-spectral cameras and imaging sensors observe and monitor the produce to determine the time for harvest. Given the substantial growth of indoor farming practices, it is expected to pose strong growth opportunities for smart harvest systems over the next decade.

Europe is projected to dominate the smart harvest market by 2023.
The smart harvest market in Europe is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period due to the prospect of increasing production, labor shortage issues, development of smart technologies, and their adoption in agriculture. The developed countries in the European Union are in the forefront of adopting smart harvest technologies in a bid to improve the production output and reduce the costs associated with harvesting. Additionally, the development of smart harvest technologies is being actively encouraged, driven by both public and private programs to bring about the commercialization of these technologies. Projects such as the CROPS (Clever Robots for Crops), SWEEPER (Sweet Pepper Harvesting Robot), and the Handsfree Hectare project highlight the industry efforts to develop and commercialize the deployment of smart harvest systems in the region.
