According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Microirrigation Systems Market is accounted for $10.60 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $18.07 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 9.29% during the forecast period. Micro-irrigation is one of the best methods employed by farmers in many industrialized economies to cut down on water waste. It is a contemporary technique where drippers, sprinklers, and foggers are placed along a water delivery line to apply water and nutrients to plants in regulated amounts. This irrigation system is appropriate for a variety of crops since it increases water intake effectiveness while decreasing soil erosion and fertilizer loss. It increases crop productivity while addressing water scarcity issues. It is an easy method of chemigation and fertigation, which is appropriate for all types of soil. It is becoming more popular than traditional sprinkler systems because it improves agricultural output, field preparation and labor expenses.

According to a census conducted by the International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage, the acreage of micro irrigation has grown by 25 times in past 3 decades.

Market Dynamics:


Growing awareness among farmers

As water becomes a more scarce resource, farmers have been exploring for innovative ways to grow more crops with the same quantity of water. Micro irrigation systems are fantastic at raising crop yields without using an excessive amount of water, preventing soil erosion, and lowering water waste. Small-scale farmers and large-scale farming enterprises are been encouraged to utilize new technologies in data analytics and water flow. The pressure to produce more high-quality crops with less water is fuelling the market growth.


Continuous maintenance requirement

Micro-irrigation systems need constant maintenance and repair. For protection against frost, the device requires supplementary equipment. If not detected and fixed in a timely manner, emitter blockage directly affects the rate and uniformity of water application, increases maintenance costs, and causes crop damage and production losses. The cost of the replacement parts might be high. All these factors are hindering the market growth.


Increasing government initiatives

The government is leading a number of measures that are assisting in boosting market expansion. The federal government also plays a number of responsibilities in aiding agricultural producers with irrigation methods, including as technical help, financial assistance, research, reporting, and monitoring. Such government support for the widespread use of micro irrigation systems is anticipated to generate profitable opportunities for the market's expansion globally.


Product duplication

Duplication of products across areas is caused by the absence of an effective worldwide monitoring agency. The diffusion of inferior equipment into the market is the outcome. Both trusted producers and customers suffer financial losses as a result. In order for manufacturers to feel more confidence about investing in R&D activities, an appropriate monitoring agency needs to be formed to keep an eye on licensing and patent concerns. These elements are hampering the market growth.

Covid-19 Impact

The global COVID-19 epidemic, which was followed by lockdowns in several nations, had a big influence on the agriculture industry, especially from the perspective of labor. It is projected that the availability of automated systems and the decreased labor needs associated with various micro-irrigation technologies would continue to be the main factors influencing the likelihood of market stability, particularly in the developed markets of North America and Europe.

The drip irrigation segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The drip irrigation segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, due to its precision and frequency. In drip irrigation, dripper emitters deliver tiny, frequent doses of water to each plant individually. It is the most cutting-edge technique with the greatest application effectiveness. The plants may readily acquire the necessary moisture to the dissolved salts that gather at the edges of the wet soil mass. This is therefore increasing the crop production and driving the segment demand.

The orchards segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The orchards segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to its minimal runoff. Water and nutrients are directly delivered to the root zone of orchard crops, with little runoff or evaporation. One of the more effective methods of irrigation for orchards is micro irrigation. Flexible micro irrigation is well recognized. Each system is specifically created to meet the requirements of orchards in order to maintain ideal moisture at plant root zones.

Region with largest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to raising adoption of micro irrigation systems among rural farmers. There is a significant market for organic goods in this area. By using cutting-edge Fertigation methods, it is refocusing on the creation of new irrigation systems. Along with this, government is supporting irrigation sector to support agriculture. All these aspects are driving the market growth in this region.

Region with highest CAGR:

North America is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to the high knowledge and inclination for micro irrigation systems. Awareness among farmers in this region made them to use such water savings to boost productivity, convert to thirstier crops, or irrigate more land. This region is also hugely investing in research and development proficiencies.
