Scope of Tractors Industry in Pakistan
Lot of area in Pakistan is lying uncultivated which is boosting the tractors industry in Pakistan. Population is growing day by day hence increasing the more need of food, clothes and sheltering. Agriculture sector is the backbone of Pakistan creating opportunities for a prosperous country. Decrease in average yields creating problem at the other end. Lack of mechanization techniques in agriculture especially machinery is pushing us backward in high production per acre. Use of agricultural machinery like modern tractors will increase the efficiency and harvesting processes fast.
From the last year 2016 and now in 2017 tractors sales has boosted the industry. Due to good financial health of farmers through cotton and sugarcane crop tractors are being purchased by most of the farmers.
Population/Volume of Tractors Industry:
According to Agriculture machinery Census 2010 population or number of tractors in Pakistan is 80,000 to 90,0000, which was 40,000 in Census 2004. Growth of 100% volume created the need of tractors through modern agricultural practices. Among all provinces KPK, Punjab, Sindh and Balochistan Punjab has the higher number of tractor which is almost above 75%. Tractors Industry in Pakistan has a lot of scope in Pakistan, farmers are getting awareness through the masses.
Last couple of years has major growth in tractors industry sales in result of more cultivation requirements. There is lot of gaps yet in areas where people/farmers are conservative and using old farming techniques. Government of Pakistan keeps providing subsidy scheme like Green Tractors Scheme in Punjab, Sindh tractor Scheme. Other than agriculture sector, institutes like Agriculture Department, NHA, PHA, Municipal Committees, Sugar Mills, Construction Companies converting to mechanization thus creating the more demand for tractor.
As per FAO Horse Power for per hectare must be 1.4, but in Pakistan it is 1HP/Hectare. This tells us that there is much requirement of horse power which will be filled through higher HP tractors or more tractors in volume, creating lot of scope for tractor industry.
