Smart Irrigation Market Trends



  • Growing demand for smart irrigation system is driving the market growth


There are various benefits associated with using smart irrigation, including time and money savings and the ability to satisfy specific landscape needs by optimizing water levels. the growing demand for a variety of systems, including sprinklers, drip irrigation systems, and smart detection tools to improve irrigation systems' total water efficiency. Over the course of the projected period, these variables are anticipated to fuel market expansion. The cost of the smart irrigation system and the possibility of system error, for example, are limiting the growth of the smart irrigation market CAGR.


Furthermore, the development of technology, such as the connection of cell phones to irrigation systems, is projected to create profitable market expansion potential. At the moment, smart irrigation equipment is expensive, making it out of reach for most farmers in emerging nations as well as smaller farmers in industrialized regions. Because new technology is so expensive, it is only available to large, industrialized farms. A focus on the production of well-known and widely produced crops, such as wheat, maize, and rice, limits the benefits of information and communications technology to sophisticated nations at the moment.


Due to the high price of smart agricultural equipment, the impact of this restriction is now significant. The majority of farmers in the world are small-scale or marginal farmers who find it challenging to invest in such pricey machinery. Remote access to irrigation systems is now possible for growers or residential users thanks to ongoing advancements in communication technologies. Wireless data transmission technologies are an improvement over conventional hardwired methods. Modern wireless sensors allow for convenience, mobility, etc.


Future market expansion for smart irrigation will be considerably aided by the emergence of smart cities. The prime reason for expediting the expansion of this market is the growing significance of effective watering solutions for non-agricultural practices. As smart cities continue to gain popularity throughout the world, they place an emphasis on effective water management strategies for both commercial and residential environments. For example, according to the US publication Cities Today, the number of smart city initiatives increased by 14% from 2019 to 2020 and is predicted to do so at an even greater rate in 2023 and 2024. Therefore, an increase in smart cities contributes to the growth of the market for smart irrigation. Thus, driving the growth of Smart Irrigation market revenue.


Smart Irrigation Market Segment Insights:


Smart Irrigation Component Insights


The Smart Irrigation Market segmentation, based on component includes controllers, sensors, and water flow meters. The controllers segment dominated the market, accounting for the majority of market revenue. By automatically modifying watering schedules based on weather and soil moisture levels, smart irrigation controllers offer an effective and automated solution to manage irrigation systems. This helps to conserve water and cut down on water wastage.


Smart Irrigation System Type Insights


The Smart Irrigation Market segmentation, based on system type, includes weather-based controller systems, and sensor-based controller systems. The sensor-based controller system category generated the most income. Growth is mostly attributable to sensor-based automated farming systems that combine real-time data on humidity, rain, moisture, nutrient capacity, and the ideal temperature need to increase farm productivity. Because they do not rely on weather predictions or data from weather stations, sensor-based systems are also superior to weather-based ones.


Smart Irrigation Application Insights


The Smart Irrigation Market segmentation, based on application, includes agricultural, and non-agricultural. The agricultural category generated the most income. The increasing demand for high-quality food on a worldwide scale, water conservation programs by various governments, and falling prices for smart controllers and sensors. The market is also dominated by non-agricultural uses like residential, golf courses, and sports fields. Forestry is evolving to adopt better water management strategies and irrigation techniques, which is propelling the industry's expansion.
