Tractors are the most significant type of agricultural equipment in China, accounting for 30 % of total demand in 2010. Large, high powered tractors have greatly benefited from the Chinese government's subsidy policies and will continue to see strong growth over the forecast period. However, small tractors, because they are more affordable and practical for the average farming household, will continue to account for a greater share of demand. The high price of harvesting machinery units has largely been responsible for it having the lowest penetration rate of all agricultural equipment, though the segment will register above average growth through 2015, driven by increases in farmers' incomes.

Northeast region to exhibit most rapid demand growthWhile all six regions in China will see strong demand growth through 2015, the terrain, climate, and economic condition of each region will play a significant role in relative growth. The core agricultural regions of the Central-North, Central- East and Central South, which together accounted for 74 % of agricultural equipment demand in 2010, will continue to benefit from higher income levels and better developed infrastructure. Although it is one of the smaller regional markets for agricultural equipment, the Northeast will continue to see the fastest growth in demand through 2015. Part of the reason is that the Northeast -- while representing just over eight % of China's total land area -- has nearly 20 % of sown land. More importantly, the Northeast has one-third of national plain areas.
