Irrigation Automation Expands to Provide Convenient and Steady Water Supply
The lack of freshwater resources in urban and arid regions as well as continuous progress in greenhouse projects are leading to enormous dependence on efficient irrigation techniques. These techniques must be based on sensors assisting spraying and dripping irrigation automation systems. Considering this need, the global irrigation automation market is experiencing exponential rise in the demand.
The continuously growing population around the globe demands enough food and drinkable water. On the other side, various country governments are constantly encouraging energy and water conservation projects. This support from government bodies benefits the market to grow rapidly.
Due to climate change, we are experiencing unpredictable rainfall patterns. This change creates water crisis and disturbs the use of conventional agricultural irrigation practices. This change is also propelling the use of advanced irrigation techniques for cultivation. The integration of some advanced technologies including soil moisture-based and weather-based water management techniques promotes the adoption of irrigation automation systems.
Golf courses, urban landscaping, and residential plantation are demanding convenient, steady, and automatic water supply techniques, in turn, this requirement is also supporting the growth of irrigation automation market.
Few smart sprinkler controllers are capable of being integrated with weather intelligent systems that respond accurately to the real-time climate conditions. These systems are supported by smartphones so provides ease of control to the user.
The research report published by The Insight Partners anticipates that the irrigation automation market will grow to US$ 9.63 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of 19.2% between 2020 and 2027. The market is broadly expanding in the region such as APAC, North America, Europe, MEA, and SAM.
India and China have large irrigated areas and this fact creates plenty growth opportunities for the companies providing the automated irrigation systems. Last year, Asia held approximately 40% revenue share to the overall market. In terms of market share, Europe and North America held the second and third position respectively in the global market.
Looking at the global scenario, industry analysts state that the implementation of advanced technologies in developing economies will broaden the scope of automated irrigation in Asia in next five years.
