Application Segmentation Analysis

On the basis of applications, the micro irrigation systems market is segmented into following categories:

  • Agriculture
  • Gardens, Public Places and Sports Grounds
  • Others (Nurseries, Greenhouses, Residential etc.)

Micro Irrigation Systems Market

As of 2014, the global micro irrigation systems market was led by the agriculture segment. The segment accounted for a market share, in terms of revenue, of over 62% of the total market. Agriculture is the prime and most traditional application of micro irrigation systems, worldwide. Additionally, with rising population, water scarcity issues and food requirement, it becomes essential to increase agricultural yields with minimum wastage of natural resources. Many national governments are now making efforts towards development of their agriculture sector which includes micro irrigation as an important component. Thus, the demand for micro irrigation systems is expected to remain strong in agriculture during the forecast period.

Additionally, due to increasing efforts for advancement of agriculture sector in India and China, the demand for micro irrigation systems is estimated to expand significantly in the coming years. Hence, the segment is projected to retain its dominant position in the market throughout the forecast period. Nevertheless, the others segment is expected to register the highest growth rate, in terms of adoption and revenue, in the market during the forecast period. People are increasingly shifting towards greenhouse farming for cultivating variety of crops. Due to growing practice of greenhouse farming, the demand for small scale micro irrigation systems is expected to spur substantially in the coming years.

Geography Segmentation Analysis

The global micro irrigation systems market has been segmented, on the basis of geographical regions, as per following regions and countries:

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Rest of North America
  • Europe
    • EU7
    • CIS
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
    • Japan
    • China
    • India
    • Australasia
    • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Rest of the World
    • Middle East and Africa
    • Latin America

As of 2014, the global micro irrigation systems market is dominated by North America region accounting for over one third of the total market revenue. Agriculture sector in North America is well developed with strong penetration of micro irrigation systems. Additionally, significant proportion of agriculture in the region is equipped with mechanized irrigation systems such as center pivot and linear move irrigation systems. Due to this the region is expected to retain its dominant position in the market throughout the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is estimated to register the highest growth in market during the forecast period. The demand for micro irrigation is expected to be mainly driven by India and China. India and China have large agricultural sectors with the two countries being among the largest producers of agricultural products, globally. Nevertheless, the penetration of micro irrigation systems is relatively less in the countries making them highly lucrative for micro irrigation systems. Further, regions such as North Africa and Latin America are also expected to witness strong adoption in micro irrigation systems in the coming years.

Micro Irrigation Systems Market

Hismation: Micro Irrigation Systems

Due to uneven and unreliable rain distribution over different geographical landscapes, it becomes difficult to carry productive agricultural practices without any reliable source of water. This makes adoption of supplementary water supply system essential for agriculture. Irrigation refers to an artificial water supply arrangement designed for supplying water to agricultural farms. Due to growing scarcity of water resources globally, it is advisable as well as necessary to use effective irrigation technique thereby curbing water wastage. Additionally, with rising population worldwide coupled with requirement of higher food production, it becomes important to carry productive agricultural practices. Micro irrigation systems are the most efficient and reliable methods of irrigation for carrying productive agriculture.

The concept of irrigation has been in existence since several centuries across different parts of the world. Traditionally, non-mechanical irrigation techniques including types such as flood irrigation, furrow irrigation, lift irrigation and others were dominant which resulted in greater water losses. As a result, the concept of micro irrigation came up which focuses on frugal use of water for different applications. The most common types of micro irrigation systems are drip irrigation and sprinkler irrigation systems. Over the period of time, these systems have become fairly popular worldwide due to their better efficiency as compared the traditional irrigation techniques.

Although the concept of drip and sprinkler irrigation systems has been into existence since more than a century, the commercial application of these systems was achieved in the mid-twentieth century. Sprinkler irrigation systems have become popular since the early 1930s, whereas the drip irrigation systems have been under development since 1860s. Since these irrigation systems offer better water efficiency, these are by far the most commonly used micro irrigation systems worldwide. Due to usability across wide range of applications, sprinkler irrigation systems currently dominate the overall micro irrigation systems.

Sprinkler irrigation systems segment considered in this report include traditional sprinklers (impact sprinklers), center pivot and linear move sprinkler systems. Soon after commercial adoption of traditional sprinklers, mechanized sprinkler systems i.e. center pivot and linear move were invented in the U.S. These sprinkler systems provide precise water supply as compared to the traditional sprinklers however, are costlier. Nevertheless, the drip irrigation systems are by far the most efficient with water efficiency ranging more than 90%. Netafim Ltd., one of the leading players in the market, claims to have developed the first drip irrigation system.

 Micro Irrigation Systems Market

On the basis of geographic regions, the micro irrigation systems market varies significantly as per the agricultural and climatic conditions of different regions. Considering the present micro irrigation systems market scenario, countries such as the U.S., Israel and Australia are developed markets with high penetration of these irrigation systems. India and China collectively account for the largest arable land with micro irrigation penetration among the lowest. Thus, the market for micro irrigation systems is yet to become mature in these countries and holds large room for further penetration.
