Plant Phenotyping Market Size (2022 - 2027)
The market size of the global Plant Phenotyping Market is at USD 260.5 million in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 407.71 million by 2027 with a growing CAGR of 11.24% during the forecast period.

Plant phenotyping is a set of procedures and tools used to measure plant characteristics or phenotypes like color, height, etc. Primarily phenotypes are affected by the environmental elements and interactions between the genes.

Plant phenotyping is generally carried out manually. Plant phenotyping uses the latest sensors for monitoring the environmental effect on plants besides plants' response towards environmental factors. The plant phenotyping market is likely to receive strong motivation with the increasing use of drones for phenotyping, in certain countries with the dearth of workforce and ease of data acquisition.

COVID-19 Impact On Global Plant Phenotyping Market
The sudden emergence of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) was originated in December 2019, Wuhan, China. The World Health Organization (WHO) announced an emergency public health issue. The pandemic crisis has badly influenced the world's economy and every businesses sector. Agri-biotechnology is one sector that is largely affected due to the pandemic. 
The impact of the pandemic is likely to curb plant phenotyping growth globally due to the pretended supply of agricultural products, shortage of labor, and interruption of farming activities. Compared to other industries and markets, the global plant phenotyping market has experienced a negative effect due to the sudden outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. However, developing conditions throughout the world help market players recapture the lost traction over the upcoming years. 
The pandemic effect depends on restricting the advancements of the global plant phenotyping market throughout the foreseen period, deductive from the controlled supply of rural items, shortage of workforce because of imposed lockdowns, and obstruction of cultivating exercises.
