• What is the type of players operating in the market ecosystem of smart irrigation, and what is their significance in the global market?
Irrigation, often known as watering, is the agricultural practice of applying controlled measures of water to land to aid in the growth of crops, as well as to produce landscaping plants and lawns.
Smart irrigation process helps in automating the irrigation procedure and reducing the water use which ultimately reduces the irrigation cost, gives better understanding of the soil and crop moisture content, timely notifications of the abnormalities in soil, good long- term health of the landscape.
The smart irrigation market is at a growth phase. Agricultural consumes more than 50% of the water for irrigation. Therefore, as an acceptable solution, there is a need to reduce agricultural water use by utilizing water in the right quantities. Internet-based software systems provide a cost-effective approach to water management, thereby promoting the global smart irrigation market.
Global Smart Irrigation Industry Overview
The global smart irrigation market was estimated to be at $1.26 billion in 2020, which is expected to grow with a CAGR of 13.69% and reach $2.75 billion by 2026. The growth in the global smart irrigation market is expected to be driven by increasing demand for sustainability and increased mechanization and automation in agriculture industry.
Impact of COVID-19
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the shortage in staff availability in the industry has resulted in the introduction of smart irrigation systems worldwide. However, it has also helped understand the value of smart irrigation due to people’s concern for food security, poverty, and global economic impact. Therefore, smart irrigation practitioners have responded positively to this crisis, and therefore, the global smart irrigation market is anticipated to bounce back more robustly in the future.
Smart Irrigation Market by Application
The application segment includes agricultural and non-agricultural segments. The global smart irrigation market in the application segment is expected to be dominated by non-agricultural application due to huge wastage of water in all forms of conventional irrigation applications.
Smart Irrigation Market by Component
The component segment for the global smart irrigation market includes controller, sensor, water flow meter, and others. The global smart irrigation market in the component segment is expected to be dominated by controller, followed by sensor. Controllers and sensors are used to enable a smart irrigation system to be deployed in agricultural and non-agricultural applications.
Smart Irrigation Market by System
The system segment for the global smart irrigation market includes weather-based controller system and sensor-based controller system. The global smart irrigation market in the system segment is expected to be dominated by weather-based controller system. This is due to the better accuracy and multiple applications of these controllers in the field.
Smart Irrigation Market by Region
North America generated the highest revenue of $460.6 million in 2020 due to high technological advancement in the region, high awareness on smart and modern irrigation solutions for agricultural and non-agricultural applications, and around 40 million acres of lawn, thus, turf grasses occupying more than 1.9% area of continental U.S., which requires daily watering for the maintenance.
