Smart Irrigation Systems Market By Component (Sensors, Flow Meters, Smart Detection Systems), By Application (Agriculture, Agriculture Applications, Non-Agriculture, Non-Agriculture Applications) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2016 - 2022

Smart irrigation refer to advanced irrigation systems that are equipped with sensor networks for real-time monitoring of weather and soil conditions. Sensors are used to monitor various parameters such as soil moisture content, humidity, temperature and others. The irrigation controller then operates water application based upon the sensor data. Rising population worldwide has resulted into the ever-increasing demand for food products over the period of time. Additionally, growing water scarcity issues coupled with uncertain/unfavorable climatic conditions is another major challenge for the agriculture sector. As a result, people are now turning towards advance farming practices as an effort to overcome these challenges and increase agricultural yield. This is the prime factor bolstering the smart irrigation systems market growth.

The smart irrigation systems market is majorly fueled by the modernizing agriculture practices worldwide. With the advancement in the sensor-based networks, these are increasingly being used across different applications. Irrigation systems are expected to emerge among the most promising applications of sensor networks in the coming years. Due to rising population as well as the food requirement worldwide, the adoption of more efficient and automated irrigation systems is expected to expand significantly in the coming years. This in turn is expected to boost the demand for smart irrigation systems designed specifically for optimum water efficiency and convenience. However, high initial and maintenance costs of these irrigation systems is major concern for the market growth.

Smart Irrigation Systems Market

As of 2015, the global smart irrigation systems market was dominated by the non-agriculture application segment. The segment contributed to more than fifty percent of the total revenue generated worldwide. The non-agriculture segment comprises sports grounds, large landscapes, turfs and residential consumers. The market is still in its nascent stage and is majorly dominated by the small scale installation in non-agriculture applications.

Due to high investment and technical knowhow required in the systems, the adoption rate in the agriculture segment is estimated to remain relatively low. Consequently, the non-agriculture segment is projected to retain its dominant position in the market throughout the forecast period. Nevertheless, with the rising shift towards advanced agricultural practices coupled with government encouragement, the agriculture segment may register strong growth in the market throughout the forecast period.

The smart irrigation systems market is broadly classified on the basis of components into following:

  • Sensors
    • Temperature Sensors
    • Soil Moisture Sensors
    • Wind Sensors
    • Flow Sensors
    • Rain/Freeze Sensors
    • Chemigation/Fertigation Sensors
  • Flow Meter
    • Smart Detection Systems

Smart Irrigation Systems Market

The smart irrigation systems market was dominated by the sensors segment in 2015. The segment accounted for a market share, in terms of revenue, of more than forty percent of the total market revenue. Sensor network is the most important component in the overall smart irrigation system. The amount of water to be distributed is mainly dependent upon the information gathered using the sensor network. Also, sensors typically require higher maintenance and replacement as compared to the other components in the smart irrigation system. As a result, the segment is estimated to retain its dominant position in the market throughout the forecast period.

The global smart 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 (U.K., France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Belgium & the Netherlands)
    • CIS
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
    • Japan
    • China
    • South Asia
    • Australasia
    • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Middle East & Africa (MEA)
    • GCC Countries
    • North Africa
    • Southern Africa
    • Rest of MEA
  • Latin America
    • Brazil
    • Mexico
    • Rest of Latin America

The global smart irrigation systems market is dominated, in terms of revenue, by the North America region. As of 2015, the region contributed to more than forty percent of the total market revenue generated worldwide. The market here is mainly backed by the strong penetration of smart irrigation systems in the U.S. across different applications. Additionally, the region enjoys presence of large number of smart irrigation vendors making the regional market growth more favorable.

The North America market is followed by Europe, in terms of revenue and adoption. Nevertheless, the Asia Pacific region is estimated to emerge as fastest growing market for smart irrigation systems in the coming years. The growth is majorly expected to from the modernizing irrigation sector in China and India. Other promising markets for smart irrigation systems include Western Europe, Israel, Turkey and others.
