The growth of the market is attributed to the increased scarcity of water along with changing trend mechanization of processes related to agriculture around the world.

Irrigation Automation Market

Irrigation Automation is the method of irrigation performed with the help of automatic systems. The automation irrigation system, needs negligible manual involvement for its operations. Irrigation process are performed automatically with the assistance of the irrigation automation system. The irrigation process requires instruments, such as sprinkler, drip, and surface. The use of irrigation automation reduces the labor work significantly which in turn declines the cost of irrigation. Irrigation automation system is highly used as it is highly effective in conserving water and does not causes extra loss of water during  irrigation.

In past few years, the irrigation process are adopting automatic systems in place of manual systems. Approaches based on feedback are coupled with automated systems has allowed better maintenance of resources as compared to the traditional irrigation systems. The automatic systems permit the customers to amend the irrigation process as per the volume, time, real-time data, and computer-based systems to regulate the watering. Furthermore, the systems are frequently used in a large irrigated areas, which is additionally spread into small segments known as irrigation blocks.

The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated negative impact on the world market. The irrigation automation sellers and manufacturers has witnessed various production issues, such as non-availability of raw materials, factory shutdowns, lack of resources, and others. The major factor for market restriction in the pandemic is due to disruptions in the supply chain in agriculture sector. The supply of hardware equipment was also impacted by the outbreak that in turn caused negative impact on the market players in the irrigation automation market. Whereas, operations of the automated irrigation were not affected significantly due to minimal human intervention,

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

Market Segment Insights

Time-bound segment is expected to grow at a rapid pace

Based on automation types, the global irrigation automation market is classified into time-based, volume-based, real-time-based, and computer-based control system. The time-bound segment is expected to grow at a rapid pace. The segment showed revenue share of 30% and more in year 2019. This is attributed to the advantages offered, such as reduced labor cost, less amount of fuel used, and proper regulation of irrigation process. The segment enables the user to manage, control, and intervene at a constant interval at various irrigation steps. This shows that the time-bound segment is beneficial for increasing the productivity of the harvest.

The real-time bound automation segment is anticipated to grow at a fast rate owing to the increasing need of real-time data collection with the use of sensors and tensiometers for rain, temperature, and weather. The tensiometer are applied to calculate the level of irrigation required along with plant evapotranspiration systems. These factors demonstrates that the segment is set to grow in the coming future.

Irrigation Automation Market

Controller segment is projected to expand at a considerable CAGR

On the basis of components, the global market is divided into sensors, controllers, sprinklers, valves, and others. The controller segment is projected to expand at a considerable CAGR. The segment showed revenue share of 30% or more in the year 2019. The rising demand of semi-automatic systems, such as time-based systems and volume-based systems is boosting the segment growth in the market. Controllers assist in supplying necessary amount of water at the correct time as per the schedule. Controllers provide data of real-time regarding the soil, weather, and plant.

The sensors segment is anticipated to expand at a considerable rate owing to the benefits provided by the segment of accurate determination of real-time soil moisture levels. The sensors advance the connectivity as well as access with real-time data through the app installed on the smartphones of the customers. Additionally, the precise soil moisture measurement and temperature solutions by the sensors, the sprinklers and dripping systems work properly with automated technology. This increases the productivity with the reduced manual work.  

Drip irrigation segment is anticipated to show lucrative growth

On the basis of irrigation types, the global market is divided into sprinkler irrigation, drip irrigation, surface irrigation, and others. The drip irrigation segment is anticipated to show lucrative growth. This is attributed to the long life span of the system which is around ten years. This causes the irrigation system durable with greater consistency in yields and high operating efficiency. The drip irrigation reduces the water loss due to evaporation and run-off. Additionally, less water usage and reduced cost of the drip systems are the key factors for the growth of the segment in the coming future.

The sprinkler irrigation type is also expected to grow at a substantial pace due to the great range of the system for irrigation and also greater water consumption efficiency. The advancement in the irrigation systems, such as use of weather-based intelligent systems that are supported by smartphones that provide regulated irrigation system.

Irrigation Automation Market

Non-agriculture segment is expected to grow at a significant rate

On the basis of applications, the global market is bifurcated into agriculture and non-agriculture. The agriculture segment is further segmented into greenhouses and open fields. The non-agriculture segment is segregated into golf courses, residential, sports grounds, and others. The segment non-agriculture segment is expected to grow at a significant rate. The development of the segment is because of the introduction of pastures, golf courses, residential, sports grounds, gardens, turfs and landscapes around the world. The automation of irrigation systems allows real-time watering the field with adequate amount of water which decreases the water bills.

The agricultural application is estimated to grow at good pace. The segment demonstrated revenue share of greater than 59% in 2019.
