Micro Irrigation Systems: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Micro irrigation represents one of the most cost efficient ways of watering plants and crops in a controlled manner. The need to achieve food security under growing water scarcity is resulting in the need for efficient water management, thus benefitting demand for micro irrigation techniques. As compared to traditional furrow and flood irrigation systems, these methods require lesser water, minimize water wastage and result in higher crop yields and agricultural productivity. Strong population growth and increasing demand for food will continue to influence demand for irrigation systems. Growth in the market is also driven by the support from local governments to implement these systems as a standard practice to conserve water resources.

The market for sprinkler micro irrigation systems constitutes the largest product segment, led by increasing adoption of central pivot and lateral move sprinklers. Drip irrigation is projected to grow at a rapid rate guided by beneficial attributes such as efficient use of water and higher crop yields. Development of advanced technologies is additionally spurring growth in the market. Poised to benefit are irrigation solutions based on sensors for real time feedback on temperature, PH-value, humidity and soil moisture. With precision farming becoming the norm, optimization of water and fertilizer usage has also gained importance. GPS controls and introduction of Variable Rate Irrigation (VRI) technology for central pivots and lateral move systems allow application of differing rate of water, thus eliminating unnecessary water wastage and related costs.

As stated by the new market research report on Micro Irrigation Systems, the United States represents the largest market worldwide. A major portion of projected demand in the region is expected to come from replacement of existing equipment. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 19.2% over the analysis period. The growth in the region is guided by strong population and economic growth, increasing demand for food, severe water scarcity, and government policy based measures for adopting micro irrigation systems.

Major players covered in the report include EPC Irrigation, Jain Irrigation Systems Limited, NaanDanJain Irrigation Ltd., Lindsay Corporation, Nelson Irrigation Corporation, Netafim Ltd., Rain Bird Corporation, Rivulis Irrigation, T-L Irrigation Co., The Toro Company, Toro Micro Irrigation, Valmont Industries, Inc.
