Micro irrigation systems market is projected to grow at a CAGR between 17 % to 18 % from 2018 to 2023. The market was valued at USD ~ 2.9 billion in 2016. The market is studied for two major types of micro irrigation systems which are drip irrigation systems and sprinkler irrigation systems. The sprinkler irrigation systems market is further segmented into lateral move sprinklers irrigation and central pivot irrigation. The market is studied for orchid crops & vineyards, field crops, plantation crops and other crops. Major components considered in the study are drip emitters, irrigation valves, polyethylene tubing, filters, and micro spray. The end users considered while studying the market are industrial users, farmers, and others. The major stakeholders in this industry are farmers, raw material suppliers, micro irrigation systems manufacturers and distributors, regulatory authorities, and researchers.
The market for micro irrigation systems is driven by factors such as rising water scarcity and increasing food demand; population growth and rising awareness of food security especially in the developed countries; high irrigation costs due to increasing energy and water price; use of micro irrigation systems due to rainfall fluctuations resulting into crop loss; and advantages of micro irrigation such as optimized performance, cost effective and less maintenance. Along with this, high government support and changing farming techniques with innovation in drip and sprinkler irrigation systems for maximum results is triggering the leading companies in this industry to invest huge sums of money in R&D and introducing innovative products with better results and high effectiveness.
The two major types of micro irrigation systems considered in the study are sprinkler irrigation and drip irrigation. The market for sprinkler irrigation is the second largest due to increasing usage of central pivot and lateral move sprinklers. Effective water supply with minimum water loss and development of advance techniques such as sensors measuring the temperature, PH-value and moisture in the soil is leading to the market growth of sprinkler irrigation. Along with the market growth of sprinkler irrigation, the demand for drip irrigation is rising substantially. Increasing acknowledgement of advantages of drip irrigation is expected to increase the market size with the highest CAGR in the coming years.
The crop types considered in the micro irrigation systems market are orchid crops and vineyards, field crops, plantation crops and others. The highest application of micro irrigation is currently done on the orchid crops and vineyards. It is followed by plantation crops and field crops. Increasing growth in green house vegetables and fruits and high usage of irrigation systems in vineyards is driving the market for orchid crops and vineyards.
