According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Drip Irrigation Market is accounted for $7.1 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $13.5 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 11.3% during the forecast period. The micro-irrigation technique known as drip irrigation, or trickle irrigation, ensures the slow application of water to the soil surface consistently over a longer period of time through small diameter tubes and pipes delivered at the root zone of the plants, drop by drop, via drippers. For example, drip irrigation enables water to be supplied directly to the plant's root, making it one of the most efficient methods of irrigation. For almost all horticulture crops and vegetables, the drip irrigation method is used. Managing wastewater is the primary goal of the drip irrigation system. The Drip Irrigation method prevents water loss from deep percolation, run-off, and evaporation in sandy soils. In dry regions or regions with severe water shortages, drip irrigation systems are expanding quickly.
According to estimates by the University of Rhode Island, drip irrigation is 90% efficient, unlike other irrigation techniques that are only 65-75% efficient. Where it offers numerous chances for the market's players to expand.
Growing adoption of micro-irrigation for production of various crops
Continuous drips or very small streams of water are applied to the soil's surface during micro-irrigation. Micro-irrigation is becoming more popular among large-scale irrigation communities because it is the most effective way to apply water to crops. Crop growers now have more demand for micro-irrigation systems due to growing concerns about food security and water scarcity. Due to its potential to boost crop yield and efficiency while lowering labour requirements, micro-sprinkler irrigation has seen a significant increase in demand in Colorado orchards in recent years.
Clogging due to hard water
Even though new designs now include filters and self-flushing emitters, small tubing frequently clogs due to hard water. The tubing and system also seem to be rough. Additionally, tubing is frequently covered by mulch or plant foliage due to its unsightliness, making it challenging to assess the system's efficiency. Most gardeners, both amateur and professional, are frequently unaware of a maintenance problem or system clog until the affected plants start to exhibit stress symptoms.
Increasing governmental support to proliferate the market growth
Government bodies all over the world are providing substantial subsidies to encourage farmers to use drip irrigation as a result of the growing awareness of the value of micro-irrigation techniques like these in modern agriculture. The introduction of awareness campaigns to inform farmers about contemporary farming methods is anticipated to further support the expansion of the micro irrigation systems market.
High initial and maintenance costs
The high cost of acquisition and high maintenance costs of a drip irrigation system are two of the main factors limiting the growth of the drip irrigation market. For a drip irrigation system to keep the water flowing evenly there must be constant pressure. Moreover, the frequent use of these systems makes maintenance difficult as well. Plastic tubes also impact the fertility of the soil. The degradation of plastic by the sun can occasionally affect fertilisers and the soil. Such elements limit market expansion.
Numerous industries, including the global irrigation systems market, were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. An unprecedented disruption in the supply side can be used to describe the effects of COVID-19 in large part. Additionally, due to restrictions intended to contain COVID-19, manufacturing industries were shut down. Irrigation system manufacturing has experienced decreased production efficiency globally due to a lack of skilled labour and raw materials availability. As things returned to normal, the impact on the market for irrigation systems was less than it would have been in 2020.
The Orchard crops segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Due to the convenience of adopting the irrigation method, followed by other advantages like frequency, root zone irrigation advantages, etc., the orchard crops segment is anticipated to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Prior to the current water crisis and growing concerns about food security, micro-irrigation was primarily used to grow high-value cash crops. However, this practise is now being widely adopted in other crop segments, including field crops, landscape & turf, and others, such as vegetables, forest crops, and nurseries.
The Surface segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
During the forecast period, the Surface segment is anticipated to dominate the market and hold the largest share. Where issues like water logging are a problem, the surface application is strongly preferred and used. In addition, compared to subsurface irrigation, surface drip irrigation achieves a high degree of water distribution uniformity. From annual row crops to perennial crops, a variety of crops are irrigated using the surface irrigation segment. Another significant factor for the application method's widespread adoption in both developed and developing economies is its high cost-effectiveness is fueling the segment growth.
Region with largest share:
Due to government incentives and subsidies, the Asia Pacific market is predicted to hold largest market share over the forecast period. Moreover, benefits related to drip irrigation use, such as high yield and minimal water waste, are promoting market expansion in developing nations like China and India. The government's support of micro-irrigation and the substantial subsidies provided for their installation are expected to be a key factor in the expansion of the Asia Pacific market.
Region with highest CAGR:
Europe is anticipated to witness highest CAGR growth for Drip Irrigation market over the forecast period, Due to the widespread use of drip and sprinkler irrigation, which covers the majority of the region's irrigated land, and the market saturation that results from this region. A key driver of the market's expansion in Europe is the high level of awareness regarding water-use efficiency and irrigation techniques that conserve water during crop production. In many European nations like Spain, Italy, Greece, Cyprus, and Malta, micro-irrigation is used extensively where it provides major oppurtunities for the key market players.
