Keeping pace with global agricultural transformation
There is a number of key drivers behind the transformation of agriculture into a progressive, high-tech global industry, including the impact of climate change, a growing population with evolving consumer and societal preferences and the advancement of agricultural technology.
The food and agriculture technology and products market were estimated at $494.4 billion in 2018 and expected to reach a value of $729.5 billion by 2023. The drivers for this are numerous, including continued growth in the consumption of protein-based food products, prioritisation by consumers of food safety and traceability and the increased adoption of advanced genetic technologies. Governments’ support to adopt modern agricultural techniques is growing due to exploding populations and demand for agricultural production, all while preserving environmental resources.
We have supported our clients on numerous Agtech and FoodTech projects through completing technical and commercial feasibility and market entry studies along with vendor and buyer due diligence. Our experts identify the most suitable technologies from the right vendors in line with financial and technical scope.
Fostering innovation from the ground up using climate smart technologies
The opportunities for digital solutions to address agricultural challenges particularly in Africa and the Middle East are profound. There is a growing urgency for disruptive innovation to overcome the issues of food security and water scarcity. The integration of emerging biotechnologies is a critically important strategy in minimising societies’ ecological and carbon footprint. The use of IoT based farming in conjunction with modern ICT and new farming technologies, such as blockchain, robotics and drone technology, is key to confronting these issues.
