Agriculture has entered the digital age, private equity and venture capital are pushing this transformation forward.

AgTech is no longer a niche, but a multi-billion market.

This has given rise to a few venture capital funds specialized on this topic.

The agriculture industry is facing several challenges:

  • An elevated increase in demographics will boost demand for food
  • Population growth (world population expected to almost 10 billion by 2050, up from 7.6
  • Urbanization is increasing
  • Natural resources are stretched
  • 25% of all farmland is already rated as ‘highly degraded’
  • ~80% global deforestation driven by agricultural concerns
  • USD 1 trillion investment necessary before 2050, for irrigation/water management in developing countries alone
  • Climate change is reducing productivity
  • Agriculture is one of the primary producers of greenhouse gas emissions
  • Food waste is a massive market inefficiency and an environmental threat
  • Between 33 percent to 50 percent of all foods produced globally is never eaten, and the value of this wasted food is more than $1 trillion
