Drivers & Restraints-

Transformation of Properties into Agritourism Destinations by Farmers to Aid Growth

Around the world, tourism and leisure pursuits contribute significantly to the high revenue that agricultural farms generate. As a result, many farm owners these days are quickly turning their estates into agricultural tourism attractions. This is a significant market growth driver for agritourism. For example, data from the Census of Agriculture stated that, in the United States, farm revenues from agritourism tripled between 2002 and 2017. This demonstrates that agrotourism investments are growing quickly, while farmers are losing a lot of money due to low crop output.

How will COVID-19 Pandemic Impact the Global Market?

  • Lockdown measures, as well as the complete halt in transportation in many countries across the globe have majorly affected this industry.

  • The market statistics is unpredictable owing to the uncertainty associated with this situation.

  • But, the growth is likely to revive in the near future stoked by the improvements in this situation.


Direct-market Agritourism Segment to Gain from Rising Sales of Farm Products

In terms of type, the direct-market agritourism segment generated 36.06% in terms of agritourism market share. This growth is attributable to the rising government investments to enhance the agricultural economy. The agencies are aiming to surge sales of farm products to achieve their goals. Many tourists admiring the rural lifestyle are seeking to purchase authentic farm products and services while visiting the farms. It would further help in augmenting the economy of farmers. Since the past few years, several farm owners have been offering a wide range of vegetables, fruits, and other farm-grown products to tourists. This factor would also contribute to the growth of this segment in the coming years.

Regional Analysis-

Europe to Remain at the Forefront Backed by Adoption of Unique Promotional Strategies

Geographically, Europe accounted for USD 32.59 billion in revenue in 2019 and is expected to continue leading the market in the years to come. The primary reason for this rise is the rising interest in on-farm agritourism among local and foreign travelers for both educational and recreational purposes. In addition, the region's market would increase due to the strong backing from the government, the expansion of the product lines offered by the farms, and the use of cutting-edge techniques to boost the sales of agricultural goods and services.
