Population Reference Bureau data reveal that low-income nations are the main contributors to rising fertility rates. Though fertility rates are decreasing, although there is little to no evidence of a decreases in child bearing. According to one study, every 1000 adolescents between the ages of 15 and 19 give birth to 94 children in low-income countries. In contrast, high- and middle-income countries register 14 and 36 births, respectively. These statistics indicate that the population is growing in low-income countries. Thus, it contributes to the growing demand for agricultural produce in these regions as opposed to middle- and high-income countries. Agricultural production continues to be the primary economic activity in Sub-Saharan Africa, further underlying the increase in demand for agricultural produce and thus contributing to the growth of the global agricultural commodities market. This factor amplifies the demand for agricultural produce, contributing to growth in the global agricultural commodities market.

The digital factor may be a boon for the developed economies. However, the implementation of such technologies has been at a primitive level for many of the developing nations. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, precision agriculture is the new norm that has been emerging in the agricultural domain, wherein agricultural inputs are optimized with the help of remote sensing technologies enabled with satellites that provide positioning systems and IoT technology to fully optimize the labor and chemicals involved in the production of agricultural commodities. With the advent of such technologies, the global agricultural commodities market is projected to achieve substantial growth in the coming years.
