According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Sprinkler Irrigation Market is accounted for $2.86 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $3.55 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 3.67% during the forecast period. Sprinkler irrigation is a method of applying irrigation water that involves pumping the water through a pipeline and spraying it into the air to shower the soil. Sprinklers come in a variety of discharge capabilities that provide adequate coverage from tiny to big fields. One of the primary factors driving the growth of the sprinkler irrigation systems market is the constant development of the agriculture industry around the world. The change from conventional irrigation methods to technologically advanced irrigation systems, as well as an increase in public and private backing for irrigation projects in developing economies, is driving market expansion.

According to the World Bank Group, an investment of $2 billion is required to irrigate 1 million hectares of land in southern Ukraine. Public funds along with private sector solutions are essential for addressing the financing gap for large projects.

Market Dynamics:


Growing support for water-efficient precision agricultural techniques

The increasing need to maximise crop yield while ensuring production sustainability is heavily encouraging the adoption of contemporary irrigation technologies such as spray irrigation, growing acceptance of automated irrigation systems and equipment outfitted with mechanised component technologies is driving the market forward. Furthermore, increased efforts by companies to successfully lower the initial set-up and installation cost of sprinkler systems such as prompt are projected to boost market in the coming years.


Expensive starting investment

The high cost of installation and maintenance associated with various sprinkler systems is projected to impede market expansion in the coming years. Adoption of high-priced sprinkler systems is expected to continue in many developing economies where heavy capital expenditure in innovative agricultural equipment is a major concern, hampered overall industry growth. Furthermore, a lack of knowledge about the numerous types of micro-irrigation systems available on the market for diverse agricultural applications can hamper market growth.


Concerns about depleting water levels are growing.

With a growing global population and rapidly depleting water resources, the world is on the verge of a crisis. Water is used extensively in agriculture, particularly in wealthy and growing economies such as China and India, who are progressively installing sprinklers to cultivate a variety of grain, oilseeds, fruits, vegetables, and other crops. Increased farmer knowledge of precision farming and acceptance of agriculture automation technologies and systems are expected to drive the growth of the sprinkler irrigation market. Moreover governments in various nations where water resources are rapidly depleting or may soon deplete are implementing sustainable agricultural development techniques.


Development of innovative irrigation products

The increased demand for sprinkler irrigation systems drives advancements in existing irrigation systems for improved monitoring and control of water resources, as well as higher efficiency. Technical improvements are often used by important businesses to incorporate new features or improve current ones in their products. Farmers can successfully manage centre pivots and irrigation stream flow thanks to the development of remotely controllable systems and user-friendly control panels. However this would pose a challenge to conventional sprinkler irrigation solutions thus hinders the growth of the market.

Covid-19 Impact

The global epidemic of COVID-19, followed by lockdowns in various economies, is projected to have a significant impact on the agriculture business, particularly in terms of workforce. Yet, the market impact of the pandemic is expected to be manageable. Less the work associated with the operation of this specific irrigation strategy, combined with the availability of automated sprinkler systems, particularly in the developed markets of North America and Europe, is projected to remain the primary reasons for market stability.

The Center Pivot segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The Center Pivot segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, due to these systems are recognised to provide great consistency of water sprayed in fields, they are widely used by growers worldwide. The great compatibility of centre pivot systems with crops ranging from cereals to vegetables, as well as their cheap annual running costs, are some of the primary driving forces responsible for the segment's growth, because of its self-moving, flexibility, and capacity to run on electric motors, lateral move irrigation systems are likely to increase at a rapid pace in the next years.

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

The Towable segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to systems use the natural movement of earth and water to irrigate a specific area in a single pass. One or more drive units for moving between fields; pivot assemblies designed for different duty types component mounts and storage carts hydraulic power unit(s) and motor controls, computer control module(s), mainline pipes, valves, manifolds, and accessory valves, drippers/trays for applying chemicals such as pesticides gate kits for well ponds or reservoirs used by pivots to there by propelling the market growth.

Region with largest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to the presence of extensive cultivating areas in countries such as the United States is a major contributor to this domination. Precision irrigation techniques' advancement and increasing acceptance in countries such as Canada, where water scarcity is becoming a major issue for crop production, are expected to boost the growth of these irrigation approaches in the coming years. Additionally, the presence of significant companies in the region such as LindsaysCorporation, Reinke Manufacturing, Valmont Industries, and others is affecting the market positively across this region.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to the agriculture which is one of the most important revenue-generating sectors in huge countries such as China and India, which is one of the primary drivers. The region's rapidly rising population is pressing growers to use innovative irrigation techniques, such as sprinkler systems, to raise a significant amount of crop without wasting water resources. Furthermore, strong government backing for the adoption of these irrigation systems, as well as the presence of key players such as Jain Irrigation Systems across the area, are expected to aid in the growth of the sprinkler irrigation market in the coming years.
