Fertigation Market Scenario

The fertigation market is expected to register a CAGR of 8.10% from 2019 to 2027 and reach USD 11.41 Billion by the end of 2027. Fertigation is a method that incorporates providing fertilizer with water through the irrigation system. Fertigation allows the controlled and timely supply of nutrients to plants.  Fertigation is most commonly used in horticulture, extensive agriculture and landscaping owing to the simplicity of dispenser unit and increased reliability. Fertigation helps to improve the efficiency of fertilizer as they are directly supplied to the targeted root zone, which helps in increased nutrient absorption by crops. This helps to save fertilizers by a more considerable margin, which is expected to drive the growth of the fertigation industry.

Moreover, as the nutrients are supplied to all crops in the field by an irrigation system, fertigation helps to save time and labor cost. Additionally, fertigation also helps to minimize the soil erosion and reduces the risk of root and soil-borne diseases, which is anticipated to fuel the growth rate of fertigation market. However, the high initial investment in installing a fertigation system may hamper the growth of the fertigation industry.

Irrigation Type: Secondary Irrigation Types and MRFR Analysis

The market in Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the global fertigation market and grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to the expansion of the agricultural industry. Moreover, the small size of farms has made it mandatory to use fertilizers efficiently to increase crop yield, which is anticipated to fuel the growth of fertigation industry in this region. Additionally, governments of many countries like India and Thailand, are providing subsidies to farmers for installing fertigation system, which is predicted to fuel the growth of fertigation industry in this region.

The European region is projected to gain a significant market share in the global market during the review period, due to continuous development in fertigation products. Moreover, the adoption of modern techniques in farming and reduced labor cost due to the automated application of fertilizers by fertigation, are the factors predicted to boost the growth of fertigation industry in this region.

The market in the rest of the world is expected to grow at a stable growth rate due to increasing agricultural activities in South American countries like Chile, Colombia, Uruguay, Argentina, and Brazil.
