The global micro & mechanized irrigation systems market size was estimated at USD 8.15 billion in 2015 and is expected to gain momentum over the forecast period. The increasing global food demand is expected to drive the market growth. The rising need for water conservation, primarily in arid regions, is further accelerating the demand for these systems.
Micro and mechanized agricultural systems help in reducing water wastage, due to which the market is witnessing phenomenal demand among emerging nations. Small-scale farmers are emphasizing on implementing these systems in order to increase crop yields by utilizing minimum water.
North America micro & mechanized irrigation systems market, by application, 2014 - 2025 (USD Million)
Micro and mechanized irrigation systems such as drip and sprinklers reduce water consumption of crops and increase the yield. Local governments across the globe are encouraging farmers to implement these products, which favors the market growth and stimulates various market participants to develop efficient and low-cost micro irrigation products.
Emerging economies in regions such as Asia Pacific and Latin America are expected to drive the demand for these products due to favorable government policies such as low interest loans and subsidies for farming. Such benefits are anticipated to energize the industry growth prospects.
Drip product segment dominated the product segment and was valued at USD 2,878.3 million in 2015. The suitability of these systems for cultivation of food crops is expected to foster their market growth over the forecast period.
The high water consumption efficiency and low cost of drip systems are the major factors impelling the segment growth. Furthermore, the increasing trend of sustainable irrigation stimulates the adoption of drip systems on a large scale. The adoption of sprinklers helps to displace water over large distances, thereby improving water consumption efficiency.
Orchard crops are presumed to emerge as the fastest growing segment and gain traction over the forecast period. The segment would register a CAGR of 16.2% from 2016 to 2025. The growth is attributed to the increasing cultivation and export of fruits and nuts mainly from the Asia Pacific region. Plantation crops also depict remarkable growth owing to the high consumption of tea and coffee products across the globe.
The growing trend of micro farming of plantation and orchard crops in residential properties is remarkably contributing toward the growth of this segment over the forecast period. The cultivation of field crops such as cotton, wheat, maize, and corn further promotes the usage of products such as central pivot and lateral move. These products cater to the water conservation requirements over a large area.
Agriculture being the major occupation in various regions is expected to be the largest contributor toward the growth of the market. The market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 15.8% over the next nine years. Emerging economies practice agriculture on a large scale, which consequently increases the adoption of such equipment in these regions.
The low cost of production makes it easily affordable for customers in emerging nations of the Asia Pacific and Latin American regions. Advancements made in irrigation techniques, such as spraying equipment and pumping units, have stimulated the demand for these systems in the greenhouse application segment.
