Due to COVID-19 Outbreak, OEMs were unable to deliver new orders. Due to this, dealers faced low availability of machines, spares, and attachments. Major Product Categories witnessed a decline in sales between 4-12% on the basis of volume and value. The government’s increased focus on agriculture mechanization in the country is expected to increase the demand for agricultural machinery in the country, registering a CAGR of 8.8% during the forecast period. Modernization would drive growth, as farmers are expected to increase the adoption of combined harvesters and tractors, thereby making their operations more efficient and reducing dependency on labor.

Farmers are able to minimize post-harvest loss and reduce the grain damage by using Combine Harvester. Further, it will help in saving costs of purchasing small machineries such as Threshers and Reapers. Using machineries farmers are able to harvest 10 acres in one day on an average. Thus, they are able to reduce the time and prepare for planting next crop in advance. Currently, Price is the biggest barrier for a farmer purchasing CH. Therefore, many farmers are renting them. Customers are purchasing Chinese and Thai Brands as they are low priced. Improvement in farm land holdings, systematic farm roads will help in increasing the access of CH in farms. In Future, more brands are expected to enter the market. John Deere also planned to launch their Combine Harvester by 2022 end. The demand will increase for Corn Combine Harvesters.
4. Government Initiatives, Growth In Machinery Supply, etc. has developed the market for agriculture equipment’s.
Govt through its various policies and initiatives such as Myanmar Sustainable Development Plan (MSDP, Feb 2018), Agriculture Development and Strategy Plan (August, 2018), Roadmap for Myanmar’s Seed Sector (2017-20), has been strengthening the agriculture sector and penetration of mechanization. Number and location of machinery supply business increased drastically in Myanmar, which led to increase in variety of machines supplied. The machines became more affordable due to this. Furthermore, Systematic Farm Land reforms such as Rectangular Plot Shape, Boundary Ratio (1:3), Equal Plot Size, Irrigation and Drainage Facilities and other key changes are undertaken. This will help in more effective usage of farm machinery, lead to better crop production, mitigate the value chain and other benefits.
