Summary of Agriculture

Agriculture plays a vital economic and cultural role across the diverse Asia-Pacific region. Farming practices vary significantly from humid tropical climates to arid inland areas. Leading agricultural nations include China, India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand and Australia.

What began as subsistence farming to meet basic needs has evolved into a multi-trillion dollar global industry that touches all corners of the world. APAC accounts for approximately 51% of the global revenue. Based on our estimates, we can say that the Asia Pacific’s agriculture industry is forecasted to be a $2910.21 billion industry in 2029 from $2325.23 billion in 2023 with a CAGR of 4.10%.

The APAC agriculture industry is valued at over $2 trillion currently and is projected to grow steady pace through 2030. Staple crops like-- rice, wheat and maize are extensively cultivated to meet the world's largest demand for food. Countries like China, India and Vietnam are also major exporters of agricultural goods.

Rising incomes are driving shifts toward higher-value produce, dairy and protein. Rapid urbanization is increasing the need for efficient, sustainable farming techniques. Governments support modernization through subsidies, research and trade policy. Precision agriculture adoption is expanding to boost yields.

Recent Trends and Insights

Recent insights show the region is working to balance agricultural expansion with environmental protection. Farmers face challenges from water scarcity, soil degradation, climate change impacts and biodiversity loss. Regenerative practices around conservation tillage, cover cropping and agroforestry are gaining prominence. Cell-based meat research also receives funding as a more sustainable alternative protein.

Another industry insight suggests that- that 735 million people faced hunger last year. The Asia-Pacific region is particularly vulnerable to climate change due to high population density, heavy reliance on agriculture and exposure to extreme weather events.

Cell-based meat research is receiving funding as a more sustainable alternative protein. The diverse agricultural landscape in the APAC region continues to adapt & to meet the needs of a growing global population while reducing environmental pressures. Innovation will be crucial for the sector to sustainably feed billions in the coming decades.

Product Insights

APAC produces and consumes over 90% of the world's rice supply, with China, India, Indonesia, Bangladesh and Vietnam as top producers. China, India, Australia are leading wheat growers. Quality is improving to expand exports. Droughts, floods and heatwaves periodically threaten production in vulnerable areas. More resilient varieties and farming methods are a priority.

China is the largest producer - followed by India. Used for animal feed, food processing and now fuel ethanol. Tropical fruits like banana, mango, pineapple thrive. Citrus and melons also important.

Rapid growth in demand and production across Southeast Asia and India. Grown in northeast India, Sri Lanka, Vietnam. Premium varieties have significant export value.

More farmers are adopting organic and regenerative practices to restore soil health. Cover cropping, crop rotation and mulching are widely promoted. The use of drones, sensors, AI and GPS-enabled machinery is expanding to optimize water and fertilizer use-- increase efficiency.

Vietnam is the world's second largest producer after Brazil. Specialty grades in demand. More than 70% of the region’s poor people live in rural areas and a third of Asia’s workers are in agriculture. Transforming agriculture through the integration of technology, infrastructure investments, innovation and regulatory reforms is essential to ensure food security and continued economic development.
