Product Type Segmentation Analysis

The micro irrigation systems market is broadly classified based on product types into the following:

  • Sprinkler Irrigation Systems
  • Traditional Sprinklers (Impact Sprinklers)
  • Center Pivot Sprinklers
  • Linear Move Sprinklers
  • Drip Irrigation Systems

The sprinkler irrigation systems segment dominated the micro irrigation systems market in 2014. The segment accounted for a market share of over 3/4th of the total market in terms of revenue. The sprinkler irrigation systems segment is further categorized into the traditional, center pivot, and linear move sprinklers. Currently, the traditional sprinklers segment dominates the global sprinkler systems market with a more than sixty percent market share in the revenue. This is due to the low cost, ease of operation, and low maintenance of traditional sprinklers compared to other systems. Mechanized sprinkler irrigation systems such as center pivot and linear move are popular in North America and Europe.

Nevertheless, the drip irrigation systems segment is expected to expand at the highest growth rate during the forecast period. This is because drip irrigation systems offer high water efficiency by applying water directly near the plants’ roots. This results in minimal loss of water with better yields. Considering the issues of water scarcity and the need for higher agricultural production, various national governments are promoting the use of drip irrigation systems in agriculture. Thus, the segment will witness strong demand worldwide in the coming years.

Application Segmentation Analysis

Based on applications, the micro irrigation systems market is segmented into the following categories:

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

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

Additionally, due to increasing efforts for the advancement of the 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 the market during the forecast period in terms of adoption and revenue. People are increasingly shifting towards greenhouse farming for cultivating a variety of crops. Due to the growing practice of greenhouse farming, the demand for small-scale micro irrigation systems is expected to spur substantially in the coming years.

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

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

Although drip and sprinkler irrigation systems have existed for 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 drip irrigation systems have been under development since the 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 many applications, sprinkler irrigation systems currently dominate the overall micro irrigation systems.

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

Based on 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. On the other hand, India and China collectively account for the largest arable land, with micro irrigation penetration among the lowest. Thus, the micro irrigation system market is yet to mature in these countries and holds large room for further penetration.

As of 2014, the global micro irrigation systems market is dominated by the North American region, accounting for over one-third of the total market revenue. The agricultural this is because the agriculture sector in North America is well developed with strong penetration of micro irrigation systems. Additionally, a 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.

The Asia Pacific is estimated to register the highest growth in the 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, North Africa and Latin America are expected to witness strong adoption of micro irrigation systems in the coming years.
