The rapid growth of the precision forestry market can be attributed to the increasing forestry mechanization in emerging countries of Asia Pacific and Africa, rising construction activities, growing demand for timber from sawmills, decreasing cost of forestry mapping technologies, prevention of illegal logging & deforestation; and increasing government support towards digitalization of forest management. Precision forestry has the potential to transform the forestry industry by making traditional activities more efficient and economical. Also, government initiatives in many countries are helping foresters adopt advanced technologies and tools for site-specific management of the forest. The cost of precision forestry technology is expected to decrease in the next couple of years, mainly because of the declining prices of major hardware components, which is likely to contribute to the market’s growth.
Cut-to-Length technology expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period
The increasing replacement of conventional forestry harvesting equipment—full length and tree length—with fully mechanized cut-to-length (CTL) harvesting technology, is the major factor driving the growth of this segment. Fully mechanized CTL-based harvesting technology has become widely accepted in the forestry industry. CTL can be used in extreme temperatures and boreal forests, particularly in Nordic countries. For instance, CTL-based harvesting technologies are used wherein 30% of the land is inclined. Further, it can also be used in plantations and peatlands. Currently, more than 90% of logging in Sweden and Finland is carried out by CTL-based harvesting technology.
Harvesting application accounted for the largest share of precision forestry market in 2018
The growth of the harvesting application segment can be attributed to the increasing adoption of CTL-based harvesting technology. Further, the growing demand for industrial round wood across the world is expected to fuel the growth of this market. Fully mechanized CTL based harvesting is being used widely by the forest industry in temperate and boreal forests, particularly in Nordic countries. Currently, more than 90% of logging in Sweden and Finland is carried out by harvester forwarder systems, popularly known as cut-to-length (CTL).
“Americas expected to account for the largest market share from 2019 to 2024.”
The Americas accounted for the largest share of the global precision forestry market in 2018, owing to the high mechanization level of forestry operations in the US and Canada. The presence of extensive forests and the increasing demand for industrial round wood and its related products are the major factors driving the growth of precision forestry technology in this region. Increasing replacement of old forestry harvesters with more advanced and sophisticated CTL-based ones in the US and Canada is expected to create additional demand for forestry technology in this region.
