Small haul: Weak crop prices and demand for farmers will challenge the industry

Over the five years to 2017, demand from farmers has been volatile due to fluctuations in crop prices and farmer income. High crop prices earlier in the period encouraged farmers to spend on new equipment, boosting industry revenue. However, this situation began to reverse in 2015, with global oversupply resulting in plummeting crop prices that slashed income at downstream farms, constraining demand for industry equipment. While downstream markets have since stabilized and grown slightly, prices and demand conditions remain weak. These challenges are expected to lessen over the five years to 2022, with slight increases in crop prices helping to boost demand from downstream more.
