Micro Irrigation System Market Trends



  • The increase in greenhouse cultivation to boost the market growth


A major alternative to overcoming yield issues is cultivating flowers and vegetables in greenhouses. ‘Increasingly, farmers are turning to greenhouses as they provide year-round production. It is commonly found for greenhouses in the country to be equipped with micro irrigation systems. A drip irrigation system is the most common micro irrigation system in greenhouses.


Further, over the past few years, greenhouse revenues have also increased. For instance, according to Statistics Canada, by 2021, greenhouse sales, nursery sales, field cut flowers, and sod sales had increased 7.5% to USD 4.7 billion. In addition to growth in greenhouse revenue, the micro irrigation systems market is also experiencing growth in sales.


Additionally, most greenhouses are used to grow leafy vegetables, capsicums, flowers, and tomatoes. Greenhouses and micro irrigation systems are being subsidized by the country's central and state governments. The Indian government, for instance, aims to irrigate 100 lakh hectares under micro-irrigation within five years in the 2021 budget. A similar number of farmers benefited from drip and sprinkler irrigations in 2019-20. As a result, state governments are increasingly intervening in the micro irrigation systems through subsidies and investing in technology to make their products more efficient and effective; this is expected to result in further micro irrigation systems market growth.


However, governments across agro-dominant countries of Asia are encouraging farmers to use irrigation techniques that use less water to produce crops sustainably is another factor driving the growth of the micro irrigation system market revenue.
