Fruit Picker Market Size

The global fruit picker market is projected to grow from USD 189.3 million in 2021 to USD 325.8 million by 2026 at a CAGR value of 16.8% between 2021 to 2026. Fruits pickers are used by fruit farmers to harvest ripe fruits. Manual harvesting is a time-consuming and labor-intensive process. As these jobs are temporary and seasonal, it is becoming increasingly difficult for farmers to find the required labor. As the process is labor-intensive and farms need labourers spread across huge areas of land, they require an automated system to ensure the fruits are harvested at the right time.

With the growing scarcity of labor as people turn to other more permanent professions, the market for fruit pickers is expected to grow during the forecast period.

Farmers usually choose the fruit picker that meets their needs as there are manual and electronically operated fruit pickers available in the market. Manually operated fruit pickers allow workers to cover greater areas as they will have to expend less energy to harvest fruits. Fruits like strawberries, avocados, blueberries, oranges, among others require a lot of labor to be harvested in time to prevent wastage. The use of fruit pickers will help farmers to prevent wastage of harvest as workers will be able to cover larger areas quickly.

Technological advancements have also had a hand in the growing adoption of electronically operated fruit pickers. With the integration of artificial intelligence and computer software, harvesting can be automated. Advanced detection software will allow farmers to harvest fruits at their full potential and prevent early harvests. These automated fruit pickers can reduce human error when using manual labor. The harvesting can also be done at a faster rate with the help of such fruit pickers. With the help of AI, farmers can track fruits at various stages and create their own customized plans to ensure that the harvesting is carried out efficiently.

The growing demand for fruits in the global market and the rising trend of eating fresh and organically sourced have spurred the demand for fruits in the market. With developments in storage and transportation, farmers can access a wider customer base. The growing demand for fruits has increased the number of fruit farms in agricultural countries in the APAC and Latin American regions. 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, supply chain disruptions stemming from lockdowns and restrictions on transportation and labor had a negative impact on the demand for fruit pickers as farmers had to stop farming activities or reduce their production capacity. The market is expected to mend itself during the forecast period as farmers begin to increase adoption of automation and demand for fruits increases. The market is restrained by the seasonal nature of fruits and the high initial capital costs involved in the deployment of fruit pickers.

Fruit Picker Market: By Source

Based on the source of the energy required by the fruit picking equipment, the market is segmented into manually operated and electronically operated. The manually operated segment is expected to hold the largest piece of the market during the forecast period. Manually operated fruit pickers are cheaper than their electronic counterparts, they are more suited for farmers who have access to an adequate labor force. As manually operated fruit pickers reduce the energy expended by workers as these products have variable cutting angles and handle sizes, workers can cover larger areas. These devices are more common in developing nations and the large agricultural base in such countries has been a major contributor to the growth of the manually operated segment.

The electronically operated segment is expected to become the fastest-growing segment. Growing demand for automation and the lack of cheap labor in developed nations is expected to drive the demand for electronically operated fruit pickers. The growing support by governments provided to agricultural farmers is also expected to play a crucial role in the growth of the electronically operated segment.

Fruit Picker Market: By Product Type

Based on the various types of fruit pickers that are available, the market is segmented into manual tools and automated tools. The manual tools segment is expected to hold the lion’s share of the market. Manual tools are cheaper than automated tools, manual tools are easier to handle as automated tools would require the workers to be trained to handle such tools. The ease of operation and cost-effectiveness of manual tools have culminated in the dominance of the segment.

Fruit Picker Market: By Region

Based on region, the market can be broken into various regions such as North America, Europe, Central and South America, Middle East and North Africa, and Asia Pacific regions. The North American region is expected to be the dominant force in the market during the forecast period. The United States has been of the major agricultural producers in the world. The presence of large fruits farms in the region, lack of cheap labor, combined with the growing presence of fruit picker vendors has been the major contributors to the dominance of the region in the fruit pickers market.

The APAC region is expected to be the fastest growing region during the forecast period and grow at the fastest growth rate among all regions. The growing investment by governments to improve the sustainability of the agricultural industry in the region, growing demand for fruits, increasing export base of fruits, and the saturation of agriculture in the region are expected to be the major drivers of the market in the region.
