Nigeria Agriculture Tractors Market Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 4.4% During the Forecast Period, 2019-2024 -

The "Nigeria Agriculture Tractors Market-Size, Trends, Competitive Analysis and Forecasts (2019-2024)" report has been added to's offering.

The agriculture tractor market in Nigeria was worth USD 350 million in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% during 2019-2024.

The population in Nigeria is rapidly increasing thereby necessitating the need for increased agriculture production. As a result, more emphasis is laid on increasing farm productivity which demands the intensification of agriculture and mechanization. Nigeria is still at the early stage of agricultural mechanization; even the mechanization of power-intensive operations has been slow. Farmers are adopting tractors to expand production scale in lieu of declining agricultural labor force.


The Government has framed various policies to push for mechanization in agriculture leading to increased adoption of tractors in agriculture practices.

The various goals of the Government paving way for agriculture tractor market in Nigeria are:

  • Increase the food production capacity of farmers leading to reduced poverty and improved livelihoods.
  • Reduce the labor associated with agricultural production.
  • Reduce the level of post-harvest losses that occur across different agricultural value chains.
  • Increase the prospects of the local agro-allied industry and the conversion of crops and tubers to Value Added Products (VAPs).


Even after the strong support from the Government for mechanization in agriculture, there are various factors which are hindering the growth of tractor market in the country.

Various factors restricting the adoption of tractors market are:

  • Lack of Knowledge: A lack of access to information regarding mechanization limits stakeholders across the agricultural sector from adopting mechanization. To compound this, the extension delivery system has a ratio of 1 extension worker to about 4,000 farm families. As a result, extension agents with information on mechanization opportunities are typically unable to transfer this information.
  • High Cost of Machines: The cost of mechanization input for crop production and processing is very high. Poor access to finance is also a major constraint to the adoption of tractors.
  • Fragmented Land Holdings: The average farm size of a smallholder farmer in Nigeria ranges from 0.7-2.2 hectares. Fragmented land holdings often make it difficult to use mechanization and causes inefficiencies in agricultural production.
  • Poor Access to Service Centers: Currently, there are not enough technicians trained to deal with the types and brands of machines available in Nigeria. A lack of local expertise for the repair and maintenance of machineries is a major constraint to the sustainable use of mechanization in Nigeria.
