India aims to double the farm income by 2022. This ambitious goal is expected to generate increased investment in agricultural infrastructure, and one of the parameters in the agricultural infrastructure is “Tractors’.



Tractors have come a long way since its first launch in the 1940s. Dependence on tractors increased as the technology developed. During the 1960s, companies like Eicher, Tractor and Farm Equipment Limited (TAFE), Escorts and Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) came into existence. From the 1970s to the 1980s, tractors were imported from the East.

During the 1980s and 1990s, state owned tractor companies like Haryana Tractors and Punjab Tractors came into being. In 1998, New Holland Tractors came to India and invested 75 million dollars in the market. After the 1990s, India had almost 29% of the tractor population in the world.

Indian Tractor Industry saw a positive growth during the years 2014-2017. Domestic sales increased by 18.2% in April 2016 to March 2017. The tractor exports curve remained flat during these years.

But, the tractor sales in India declined by over 10% in 2019-20 compared to 2018-19. In the past few years this is the first declination in the Indian Tractor Industry. The industry also suffered in 2020 due to economic slowdown, unusual monsoons and the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Indian Tractor Industry still has a long way to go. Low level of tractor sales in India needs strong focus on availability of finance for agriculture tools and on rural development.
